World destruction comes in small shrink-wrapped packages...


Did you Know that November is Valve/Half-Life Month?

Yes. It looks that way. It's just something I've noticed over time. If you look at the dates like this, you'll see what I mean:
  • November 1, 1999: Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • November 1, 2000: Richochet
  • November 3, 1962: Gabe Newell
  • November 8, 2000: Counter-Strike (Retail)
  • November 14, 2001: Half-Life (PS2 release)
  • November 14, 2001: Half-Life Decay (PS2)
  • November 15, 2005: Half-Life 2 (Xbox)
  • November 16, 2004: Half-Life 2
  • November 17, 2009: Left 4 Dead 2 (TBR)
  • November 18, 2008: Left 4 Dead
  • November 19, 1998: Half-Life
  • November 20, 2000: Gunman Chronicles
  • November 22, 2007: Half-Life 2 Episode 2 (PS3)
  • November 22, 2007: Team Fortress 2 (PS3)
So, it looks like a number of major titles, including both Half-Life and Half-Life 2, among other titles were released in this month in years past. Recently I posted about the tenth anniversary of Half-Life: Opposing Force, and also Gabe Newell's birthday. I guess the next one I'll post about is the upcoming 5th anniversary of Half-Life 2, and perhaps the 11th anniversary of Half-Life. I can't believe how many years have gone by.

You could argue that they are all bunched together because it's right there near Christmas, or perhaps it's because Gabe's birthday is in the month, or there could be some other conspiracy theory as to why this is, but still. Interesting...

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
