new champion – almost

It’s out. IGN has an excellent review as always, giving Half-Life 2 a rating of 9.7 out of 10. IGN is probably the most respected review site around for gaming and they had this to say in the opening of their review: “Half-Life 2 is, simply put, the best single-player shooter ever released for the PC.” That rating of a 9.7 ties HL2 with long standing numero uno, Black and White on IGN’s review list. So, go out and get the game (or download it from Steam if you want) and let me know how it is. I’ve been told that I’m on a purchasing freeze until I have unwrapped all of my Christmas gifts. Never know what Santa might drop down the chimney…
