Yes I have!!! And Iíve played up to xen getting the 25 current available achievements.

This is the version of half life 1 sssith should play. Hl2 engine and looks amazing. Many areas with extra detail or slight tweaks and extra rooms compared to the original.  But for me it was a double edged sword. There were bits of omg this is brand new I have to look! Vs Iím looking forward to ... oh they just changed something I enjoyed and looked forward to.

The major set pieces you can recognise and work out what they are inspired by.

Iíll do the alien levels once the next patch hits and achievements are live

Last night I heard about Half Life Decay for the first time https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-Life:_Decay

So it started as Playstation only .. but some years later a mod for PC came out.

It was made by Gearbox, but before they were full asshole.
Built for split screen coop .. but can be soloed

TWO FEMALE protaganists.,

So I'll try it out before getting to Half Life 2.

They gave away AC Unity when Notre Dame burned.

Damn...I forgot.  I only got half way through the first Assassin's Creed.  Hopefully this one is better.

Unfortunately Unity is one of the worst Assassin's Creed games :(

I've found some great stuff the last week or so, but this is literally the best D2 item I have ever found.

But is there any more content for Black Cat after the first DLC?  That storyline kept me engaged for DLC 1.  Halfway through DLC 2 I had enough of fighting mercenary thugs commanded by that woman.  It just became tedious.  Am I missing anything interesting?

They wrap her story up very quickly in DLC3 at a surprising time but in an unsurprising way.  Not much is resolved that is satisfying overall, pretty much just setting up stuff for an assumed sequel.  The guy asking to be trained is being trained, the reporter is traveling to where the twin-gunner is from to cover a war, and a friend in the force goes rogue.  This is a well-known gripe about him (and Batman), but they were many points where it was painfully obvious that Spiderman is willfully ignorant of the faults of the criminal justice system in his universe.  He is very much "lawful stupid", and not in a "he'll learn eventually" kind of way.  By the 2000th or 3000th enemy I KOed, it became clear that being a criminal in his world is the best job, because you get the best super-advanced tech since your boss always has infinite money (they all do), and you never get punished by anyone ever except getting beat up by Spiderman if you make yourself an easy target (but then you immediately escape from the cops and/or jail).  Seems all upside, no risk, and masochistically Spiderman seems to like it that way.

So uPlay (Ubisoft) is having a big sale.  Division 2 is on sale for $10.  It is only a year old.  I was interested in playing the first so I grabbed this one.

When I logged into uPlay to buy I saw that I had Assassin's Creed Unity in my account.  No clue how it got there, I would assume some free promotion.  Now I have two new games to play.  Looking forward to Division 2.
