«Half-Life 2 Achieved!»

Now that there's finally achievements in the PC version of Half-Life 2, I played through it again and got them all.

It seemed most of the achievements were just story related, and impossible to not get if you finish the game. That's kinda sad, achievements should be something special or unusual that you have to do.

As I said, I got all 33 achievements. You know what was the hardest and most frustrating achievement for me to get? Not Zombie Chopper (Play through Ravenholm using only the gravity gun), not Keep Off the Sand! (Cross the antlion beach in chapter Sandtraps without touching the sand), not even Lambda Locator (Find all lambda caches in Half-Life 2). It was Two Points (use DOG's ball to make a basket in Eli's scrapyard). It took me forever to finally get that one.

I admit, I used a guide along the way to find all the lambda caches. I didn't even know some of those places existed. The lambda caches are weapon and health packs inside supply crates. They are marked by a yellow spray painted lambda ( λ ) symbol. But some of them are in such random places that no one would find them... Kinda defeats the point.

On to Half-Life 2 Episode 1!
