Half Life 2 "Lost Coast" - Should have stayed lost

Man i have been waiting for a very long time for this extention to HalfLife2 to come out. They put up videos and screenshots to entice me. The put it in the program section of Steam, like I might have to pay for it (which I was ready to do). It was "Coming Soon" for way too long. Months and months i waited.
Well today i downloaded it and played it. I was very sad. It's nothing more than a playable benchmark for your gaming system. It's not an adition to the incredable story line of HL2, like i though it would be. Today was a day of great excitment followed by a tremendous let down.
It was only one load level. Very quick play time and very little interaction or skill needed.

Here you can see how they didn't even finish half the map.

Leopard Wood Manor B&B

Leopard Wood Manor B&B

This is the Bed and Breakfast we stayed at in Durban, SA. It was so wonderful to stay in a home for the last half of the trip. I felt as if i was was coming home each night. I slept so much better without the noise of a hotel. We had the whole property to ourselves. Check out the pictures, it was wonderful!

Here's a whole bunch of pictures that are finally up on Flickr. There are quite a few more coming as soon as Stan comes back with his computer. Even with the 4gb of storage I had in flash cards i STILL had to offload the pictures.

So the best is yet to come!
