Chris's Random Ramblings

Sat, 20 Nov 2004 - Buying Online

Bought a copy of Half Life 2 over the internet using Steam. At US$50, its about AUS$20 cheaper than buying it from the local store, and much more convenient. I'm using iTunes now to buy my music, so I can also avoid the hassle of going to music stores. If only Amazon.com had an Australian store (or there was a decent electronic book device).

Half Life 2 is a pretty amazing game. The graphics engine is more impressive than the Doom 3 one, the story line is enticing and it runs much better on my machine. I think this game is going to suck up quite a bit of my time.
