|I just finished HL2 Episode 1.
How appropriate that a game so totally on rails would end on a train.
I should have catalogued the invisible walls, workarounds, etc. as I went along.
All that lugging of furniture, barricade construction and hoarding of explody-things turned out to be mostly pointless.
Here are a few bits:
Stand right there Adoring Fan!
Come get me! (well, get Alyx. I used her to kill half or more of enemies.)
Took a lot of grav-shooting, and also pointless:
Jamming door to keep it open with power off doesn't work. I even got some furniture through a hole in the ceiling- which I couldn't climb through because of an invisible wall.
I am ready!
Like a pyromaniac bag-lady.
This is just a small part of my Mobile Barricade System.
Gathering loot for end of level transfer.
Jenga! Jenga Ja-ja-ja Jenga!
Ont top of Jenga pile in final area, looking back across:
I hate invisible walls
Yes I hate them Sam I Am
The end boss fight wasn't too bad.
Starting tonight with Episode 2, I'll be doing a sort of Let's Play with the emphasis on playing wrong.
I wish there was a Terminator Online:
I felt sheer anarchic joy when I ran over my first pedestrian.
