Early impressions of Portal on Nvidia's Shield have been quite favorable. Half-Life 2 should be no different, if not more friendly to gamers who aren't acquainted with the classic mouse/keyboard setup.
This saddens me. It is true that there are probably a large number of newer gamers who are not acquainted with M/KB setup and that is sad as that is the best way to experience FPS based games.

I agree. Trying to play any serious FPS with a gamepad is absolute crap vs a keyboard / mouse combo. The precision difference isn't even close. The only reason console players try to say otherwise is because their opponent is on a console as well. If a game was cross system, all console users would cry cheater and hacker to every PC user who can instantly headshot them on a consistent basis.

Makes me wonder how many resources Valve spent in this conversion that should be used for FINISHING HALF LIFE 3! Jesus Valve, throw me a bone here.

Steam alone is worth something like $2 billion a year, I think they have plenty of money to throw around and I doubt this cost them that much as they ported HL2 to OpenGL a while ago. I doubt it took much to move over.

And they are working on HL3. Plenty of people have taken tours where there is always one room that is off limits to tours.

Also we need to consider that Source 2 was confirmed which means they probably went the route of a new game engine as Source is pretty old, even though it still looks good to me.

I swear before the lord that the day they plan to release HL3, Gabe should simply use the Steam subscriber's list and send out an email with only one line:

Prepare for unforeseen consequences...

A very famous, established-a-company type game. Yep. I'd say it does.

You don't miss reporting on a celebrity when they come back after 10 years, do you?
