Finished Half Life 2: Episode 2 tonight.

Excellent installment of the franchise. Great plot and character developments, some very surprising twists, and the Hunters? The freaking Hunters.

After I beat it, I looked through the achievements list. Apparently you can use the Hunter's flechettes against them..? Going to have to see what the grav gun does with those little beasties.

The last battle was completely insane.

And then ending? All I've got say about that is... Valve, you bastards. You dirty, $#%@! bastards.

e3 comes out when?

(As for Portal, it is super fun! The AI is very cute, and the hidden behind-the-scenes areas you can find really reminded me of Cube. A great little puzzler.)
