  • Oh. My. God.

    That's right, those are periods in between each word, and that means this gets Alpha-Omega's seal of kick-ass approval.

    The Half-Life 2 E3 video is awesome, and Half-Life will absolutely rule. I dunno if it was the physics, graphics, or AI that got me the most, but it is all pure genious.

    I was going to link you to the E3 video, but apparently you have to be a Fileplanet subscriber or IG-insider to download it at the moment. But, here's a short version that doesn't have nearly as much goodness as the 20 minute preview.

    I downladed the short-version from Fileplanet together with a lot of other videos from the E3. Sadly, I can´t play it ´cause I am missing some codec. Even Nimo doesn´t help. However, it can´t be as good as Doom 3. Since yesterday, I only knew the screenshots which are still nothing special in my opinion. But you have to see them move ..........

      Just managed to get the HL2-video running. It´s cool but I still like Doom 3 better (for now).

              IGN released 4 long gameplay movies, but theyre only for IGN insiders right now, but probably will soon be available to everyone

              Im completely blown away by this game. At first, I thought "hey thats cool, but it cant compete with Doom3." After seeing these 4 videos, Im not so sure anymore. I mean, Doom3, Im all for it, cant wait, even looked for as many alpha screens as possible. But, Half Life 2 does look like itll give it a run for its money. Ive NEVER seen interactivity at this level before. You can interact with everything, I wont give anything away from the videos for anyone who hasnt seen em though. My solution is just to get em both. :grin:

              btw, theres stuff in Thief3 previews that suggest a really high interactivity with surrounding objects. Like being able to bump things and knock things over, and things like that.

                It´s now possible to download the 500 MB video of HL2 from Fileplanet for free. I don´t know if there are more free sources at the moment.

                  Fileplanet's is really better than IGN's becuase IGN's 4 videos are just cuts of the one large video that's on fileplanet, plus the fileplanet one has commentary.

                  Here's a Link.

                      FFS, can't anyone use avi anymore?

                      I'm not touching a quicktime movie until they release a client that can go fullscreen.

                        Salvage, just save it to disk and then zoom in with quicktime.
                        The only constant is change.

                          No, not good enough.

                          This is one of those things I can't stand in any video playback software. What's the point in watching a high res video and not be able to go full screen.

                            I personally can't wait for Star Wars: Galaxies and Thief 3.

                              They're making a game called "Star Wars: Galaxies & Thief 3"?!?
