Half Life 2, like the original Half Life that preceded it, did a lot to change the face of gaming as we know it. It made things like ragdoll physics absolutely mandatory for any game that deemed itself “cutting edge”. It was arguably the first major release for the Steam content delivery service, which overcame several hurdles to become the success story it is today.

This has kept people coming back over and over again to enjoy all the world of Paragon City, and the Rogue Isles have to offer. Let’s discover what Issue 14: Mission Architect brings to the table.

Free games. Everyone likes free stuff, and we all like games. So, naturally it would be logical to assume that we also like free games. Trouble is, as the saying goes, “nothing’s free” — and to a point, it’s true. To compound the sad realization that nothing’s really free, most “free” things are typically not worth having.
