Half Life (Dreamcast)




This game is something of a slow burner, but when it takes off, it really goes with a bang. What an excellent piece of gaming history this is! It's great to be playing on the Dreamcast again, as I never played a FPS on that particular shooter, and I figured my favourite console deserved some love after my Wii and 360 dominated start to the year...

My Dreamcast and Saturn stash...

As you can see from my picture of my recently ordered Dreamcast and Saturn stash, I shouldn't be moaning about lack of games... And Half Life is a brilliant re-introduction to the last generation!


I'm only about a third of the way into it, but I figured I needed to play it before I get my grubby mits ont 'The Orange Box' (yet another title on my wish list.) I'll post more on this when I'm a bit further in (or have completed the game...) For now enjoy the video!

HL was a masterpiece when it was released. Today it's still very playable, of course, but back in the day it was just fuck-tastic.

You do well to play it before HL2. Not that the story is that great (you need to do a lot of homework to make even a little sense out of that mess), but it's always good to play games in order, isn't it?

That Alex Vance is one hot piece of ass.

By the way father, the comment by Gardagami is spam at its finest. Don't click on that.

"That Alex Vance is one hot piece of ass."

And in HL2 you can have a great shot at it in that scene where she climbs a ladder...

Half Life is proving quite compelling... However, I've just had to re-play a massive section because I forgot to press a button on the silo... DOH! Plus the saving/loading times are making this game last an age...

back to the Wii or Xbox after this one methinks...

You should use some Anti virus protection programs on your computer DEITRIX. I know you are short on cash, but they are free.

yeah, I got some.. I was just giving ole Father a hard time..

Trying to save for that PS3 before MGS4!!

You planning to get the bundle? Or are you planning to buy the game and the PS3 separately?
