HL2 Take 2
 
Well, I finished Fear 2 last night.
I was still stinging at how short COD WAW was and was thinking these remakes sure don't hold up to the 2nd half life when I got an idea!

Why not revisit HL2 from the begining again? ( It's raining)

What a hoot, I had forgotten how good the game-play was in this game, and had to laugh at the bag ass biege CRT monitors everywhere.

It's been so long since I played it that I can't remember it all anyways :rofl:

That happened to me awhile ago, until it got to the point where I was honestly reflecting "holy ****, this game is BIG". Still hate the SMG, though.

You should play it with the latest Cinematic Mod. Last time I played it with Cinematic Mod V4, I think it's up to V9 now.

Just be weary of the requirements, it is quite hefty.

I totally forgot about this mod! I remember reading about it some time ago. I'll have to give it a whirl. It's a prety big file though. Over 12G after unpack and install as I recall.

and there was a mention about a nekkid Alex, lol.:thumb:

So, it must be pretty much a whole new game with a file size that big, are there lots of new levels or is it all just video upgrades?

It probably doesn't NEED 4GB of ram but if you want to run everything maxed out and still get respectable framerates you would need the 4GB of ram.
