Half-Life 2

Standard

So yeah, last week I completed my first playthrough of Half-Life 2. I have to say I didn’t understand much, at first. Let me recite what I knew of Half-Life before I played the game: headcrabs, the gravity gun, Gordon Freeman, starting with a crowbar, everyone wants Half-Life 3, and this lovely thing. After I finished the game I read up on the game a little and understood things much better. Turns out, the Combine are aliens, headcrabs are aliens, and those other aliens are, well, aliens, and G-man is an asshole. In my little research I found out that there are quite a number of expansions to both Half-Life and Half-Life 2, I added those to my wishlist so that I can complete the experience whenever another Steam sale comes along.

What did I think of the game? It was very good, I enjoyed the gameplay, graphics looked nice, I wish I would’ve found the subtitles selection earlier, and even though I knew nothing of the game before it I could understand the overall plot of this one.

Music Creator 6 Touch on Steam cheap at the moment

Standard

I’ve had Music Creator 6 Touch on my Steam wishlist for a couple of months now, because music-making programs are always good to have when making movies. Especially when this one allows you to use the music you make in commercial purposes. I haven’t actually used it yet, but it looks good. For the next 22 hours it’s on Steam for 17 euro (usual price is 50), and here’s a link for the interested. Note: I am an amateur when it comes to making music, but I do know how to edit audio.

Friday dinner feast

Standard

Originally I was going to munch on mussles, but the place only has buffet on Fridays, so we went to the pub named Harrys instead. The same place I visited last week for BBQ ribs. Excuse the crappy photos, the lighting was bad where we sat.
