Half-Life 2 released

Half-Life

Valve have finally released their much anticipated shooter Half-Life 2, sequel to much acclaimed 1998 original. The game is now available from retailers and through Valve’s own Steam content download system. The pre-loaded version that many have already downloaded should also now become functional, so you can get on with slaying all those monsters. In addition to Half-Life 2, a reworked version of the original, Half-Life: Source, is also now available through Steam for those who preordered either the silver or gold packages. Watch out for a review soon.
