The Orange Box

Wherein I’m going to superfluously talk about a set of games everyone’s already heard about, and probably already played. With the exception of Team Fortress 2, a multi-player game I have essentially zero interest in, I’ve now played the whole thing, and the short of it is that you should run, not walk (be careful crossing the street), and go get it right now. Because it’s supurb. All of it, too, though some parts are better than others. Half-Life 2 + Episodes 1-2: The meat of the box, and together about one and a half games worth of shooter goodness.

In which I shall now review some games and a movie, because I have points to make about them. Also, for those of you accustomed to slightly more…timely blog updates, rest assured that I am indeed thinking along those same lines. It’s just that, having spent the last few weeks recovering from messed up sleep cycles brought on by my flight home, combined with transcendently ludicrous happenings with school, I frankly haven’t had the energy. And when I DID have energy, well, you all don’t need to hear about exciting times with the girlfriend. However, this has changed.
