Half-Life 2 at G-Phoria

@ 2004/08/04
It seems like there's practically an awards show for everything nowadays, but how many of them let you play games while mingling with celebrities? Saturday's second annual G-Phoria awards show, held at the Shrine Auditorium in Southern California, assembled gamers, celebrities and members of the press to honor the hottest games of the year. While titles like KOTOR and Need For Speed received recognition, the buzz surrounded the demos scattered around the show. The console titles were impressive, but the real excitement arose when the demo of Half-Life 2 was announced.

"Doug specifically stated that the ATI x800 was the card of choice amongst many of the testers, as it ran roughly about 30% faster than Nvidia's best cards."
