I quite possibly have made the worst mistake of my life
I didn’t say “no” to Half Life 2

For those of you who don’t know, Half Life 2 is the game to end all games. It’s one of those first person shooters in which the player wins by getting bigger and better guns and killing other players. This game takes the concept to the next level. When you die and your screen shows the floor, you get to admire the grout in the tile or the individual strands of carpet. Everything moves. Shoot a banana and it flies across the level. The water looks like real water, complete with accurate reflections. I’ve been watching and playing a little of it and once the full version is released here in the next week or two, my life, as I know it, will be over.

On a slightly lighter note, we baptised my goddaughter today.
