Level 10, but I could care less. It's a ruse meant to help Valve generate more money.

The HD 4000 was a pretty capable little chip, actually. Under the constrains of the thermal envelopes that they operate, Intel's IGPs are actually pretty solid and are comparable to high end graphics cards from the Direct-X 9.0c era.
One of the reasons why I don't want to leave the retail job is that it pays really well for a retail job ($14 an hour) and I all do at those night shifts is just stand around and help out a customer or two if they decide to walk in.
I'll likely keep at it for the next couple of months, but I can't see myself doing this for the long-term.
Last week, I started a job as an accounting clerk. It's an 8AM to 5PM gig, with one hour for lunch. This position is salaried. I like it so far, even if the work is fairly mundane and the salary isn't all that high.
At night, I proceed to the mall next door to my office to work from 6PM to 10PM for an electronics retailer as a salesperson. Usually, there's not too many people around, so the work is not too strenuous. I still have weekends off, fortunately.
It hasn't been easy. My commute to work is about an hour each way, and I usually have to leave home by 7AM, and I often don't come home till 11PM at night. I'm getting only about five to six hours of sleep per night, but at least I get to sleep in on the weekends.
Anyone else work two jobs like I do?
I think HL1 made a bigger impression on me as a kid than HL2 did. Being one of the first video games I've ever played as a kid, its strong impression on me may be the result of the nostalgia I get from thinking about old video games in general.
The game felt different due to the engine change (RSE engine to Unreal 2). It even had a different look. The weapons handling even felt different. I know that I didn't like the weapon view (yeah, I know it could be turned off). Also, the sound bug in the demo really turned me off (I do have the full version that came with a video card I bought, but I didn't buy the card for RvS). Even when I tried TvT, it didn't feel like Rogue Spear did. I have kept my promise to not buy any R6 game after Black Thorn.WhiteKnight77
Interesting. That's an opinion that I rarely hear from Rainbow Six fans (at least, those of us who liked the pre-Lockdown stuff). Most people consider Raven Shield (myself included) to be the pinnacle of the series and one of the best tactical shooters of our age.
I suppose it's just different. I like it a lot more than Ghost Recon's feel, personally, though Ghost Recon is still a pretty good game too.
