Glorious Discussions Concerning Interactive Entertainment: Half-Life 2

July 5, 2011

It’s finally getting to be time for that discussion we’ve been mentioning all term. This is it. This is where the club sells out. This is where we give in to The Man. This is where we discuss (gasp) an actual commercial game. Instead of all this free, indie, artsy stuff. The next GDCIE will be Monday July 11, 2011 at 6:00pm in MC4059. We will be selling out to:

Half-Life 2, by Valve

There, I’m such a corporate whore that I’m even linking to the store page of the game. If you don’t already own it, hopefully you’ve had a chance to proposition Stephen for one of his gift copies. I can’t give a good play time estimate on this, but you could certainly get through it in a weekend, if you don’t get distracted too often. Hopefully you can all find time to give it a play this week, or a replay if it’s been too long and you need a refresher. If you have the episodes, give those a play and we can discuss them too; we’ll avoid discussing them in front of people who haven’t played the episodes and don’t want spoilers though.

I’ll try to be more prepared to actually run a discussion this time, though I’m not sure if that’s happened yet this term. I’ll hopefully also be less tired than I was this week.

Nothing left to say,
Jonathan Semple
