I've been incredibly busy at work over the past week, due to the fact that I had a due date today for one of my projects. Thankfully, everything has wrapped up (for the time being, that is) and I can rest a little this weekend.
Only a few more days until Half-Life 2: Episode One is released. I still haven't preordered, but I'm hoping to do so soon. It's neat that you can preload the game before you preorder, and it didn't take too long to do (although I already have Half-Life 2 installed). Whether or not episodic content will be a winner is still up in the air. All I know is that I really enjoyed HL2 and I'm really looking forward to this next chapter in the Half-Life universe.
