Nothing Much

Nothing much new. Acquired a 7800GS which is a small upgrade from my 6800 Ultra, has helped playing HL2 Episode One and Two. Bought the Orange Box primarily for the HL saga but was pleasantly surprised by Portal, best summed up by Yahtzee from TheEscapist.

Also keen to try out Call of Duty 4, looks like the first quality game in a long time (HL series excluded). Crysis is also supposed to be pretty good, although I’m scared of what it might do to my PC. Gaming seems to be picking up at the moment, after a long stretch of the same old stale gaming stereotypes. Almost enough to make me want a new PC, almost. I still think I would be content with replacing my desktop with a MacBook Pro, the 8600M GT certainly has the performance to keep up with the average desktops. Financially this is not really viable for me at the moment, and I’m not sure I have the time to be playing games anyway. Especially since I’m running the local electronic slaughterhouse at the moment while the boss and other staff are on holidays.
