HL2 expansion

I stopped getting PC Gamer Magazine, but the <A HREF="http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=22449" target="_new">Inq says</A> that the magazine mentioned the expansion for HL2, called <i>"Aftermath"</i>, is due out in the Summer. But then again, it surely is possible for Valve/Vivendi to miss that date. :wink: :lol: :frown: .

And how about those system requirements metioned for the Lost Coast level and HDR. Wow, that's a tad bit more demanding than the current HL2.

Anybody get the magazine and willing to share more info?

More about expansion
  1. I don't think minimum sys. req. will change. It will probably be something like to run with all this new stuff turned ON in game options you will need a big rig.

    The 3D engine is the same, and Valve surely wants to sell as much expansion as possible. Game is businee, never forget it. :smile:

  5. i would like to see an expansion that would let you play as barney, exactly following hl2 story line. the only problem would be the time when he was stuck pined down by the snipers. and of course a few things would have to change, like he would also have a gravity gun, the "backup" unit the scientist made. dont even cut freeman out, just have him be another computer controled character. how cool would that be to be at the begining of the game, you see freeman walking around, solve some puzzle or somthing to get him to the interogation room with you. then the part where he stayed behind to keep the gate open to let more reinforcments through, he would stay and have to fight off a rush of combine or somthing cool.

  8. Definitely excited!

    It had me surprised big time when I saw the IGN article. And I was at work seeing this.

    They better use the proper HDR techniques, not that BS performance killer nVidia mode.

  10. I think a cool FPS would be a game where you are the boss at some big, depressing office where everybody is unhappy and secretly hates each other. Instead of a weapon, you'd have a stapler. And when you try to fire the stapler, you instead would just say things like "mmmm.... yeeeeeeeah" and "mmm kayyyy?" and "if you could do that from now on, that would be terrrific", and they could use all the character's facial expressions from HL2 to show the horror and resentment of your employees. That would be a fun game.

  14. Fuccck man HL2 was [-peep-], so [-peep-] unchallanging, and full of glitches and the ending was like what that it.

    [-peep-] me steam those crazy fuccks, they really [-peep-] things up, be online let us help u stop pirates by making ur fuccking life heel lets decompress those files u installed so u can play them.

    O wait next time bitcch u need to log back onto steam to play again why because we want u to otherwise u cant play hl2.

    oooo wait u change 3 things in ur comp ur fuccked we close ur steam account and charge for reactivation.

    ooooo wait dont bother email or phoneing the fuccked up customer service cuz they dont give a [-peep-].

    000000 wait ur also lumbered with a game with sub par graphics which took brainless developers another 1 and a half years to redevelop cuz sum guy nicked the original. also if u wanted to exchange u cant cuz theres a £10 charge for the account seriel number to be reopned for another user which makes ur copy valueless.

    HL2 sucked compared to doom 3, all though doom 3 was repatative it was atleast pleasing to the eye not sum rewhashed wannabe badass first person shooter which even halo clearly kicks its ass hands down.

    oooo wait multiplayer HL2 what a load of crap, i still play halo 1 online 1 and a half years later and the halo servers are still full blows to HL2.

    and now they have a expansion pack coming [-peep-] that [-peep-], dont waist ur money its not worth it unless ur realy desperate wait for halo 2 for the pc atleast it will last more than 15 hours worth of hl2 sh1t, and u will have betta online gaming.

    valve and steam suck sh1t big time with there noses, i hope those crazy fuccks go bankrupt, cuz i waisted £20 on that fuccckin sh1t game which i waited 2 and a half [-peep-] years for. and no one wil buy it off me.

  20. You seemed alright in previous threads, I had you tagged as a nice guy - but the was the worst, most foul-mouthed AOL kiddy talk I've read in a long time.

    Learn to type and formulate your 'opinions' with a little more structure.

  25. LOL ur one to talk like sh1t dont fly out of ur mouth. yes i think ur pretty decent too but thats how i feel, and i will leave it at that it was a waist of £20 buying that game, it was like buying those bargain 3 games for £10 deals you think you got a good deal instal the game and the4n it kind of makes u sad really that u waisted the money.

    i dont give a crap really how i type but the thing i care about is u read it that means its now running in ur head and i enforced a reaction from you, that REALLY MAKES ME HAPPY.

  27. Calm down, calm down.......

    Jesus, are you guys all whacked up on speed or something? First thing you need to do is learn to type, I've never seen so many typos in a thread. Take a few deep breaths, go kick a few harmless creatures and then come back and type something that is a bit more creative instead of the sh1t that I have been reading in this thread.

    Yeh, HL2 was an anticlimax but I didn't buy it for HL2, I got it for the source engine. You played Counter Strike:Source, sure as hell an improvement on the old version.

  30. Sry Ned, yeh RX8 sounded like he needed a bit of a slap to bring him/her back into the real world.

    Sure I caught sight of you on the Steam network the other night, as I remember somebody was telling you to shut the f**k up, lol. I'm a bit of a noob myself (but getting better), if you see 'neodaz' online, say hi.
