Destiny: The Taken King Review

Could the 80s ever do wrong? Well yes - Perfect Strangers, Full House and Yazz are all perfect examples of things we'd like to forget about the era that also gave us movies like Rad, Thrashin' and Gleaming The Cube, but there's also so much right about it (beyond the aforementioned), and a certain Apple Commercial comes to mind.

Now in the tradition of modern-day homages, Valve have come up with a perfect way to essentially launch their much revered Half-Life 2 as it nears its official release date for Mac OS X (May 26), by way of a 1984 Macintosh ad reimagining. This is the game all Apple owners too loyal to delve into PC or console have been waiting for, and it's all thanks to Steam for Mac. Check out the embedded video below for a bit of modern day nostalgia.

I find it ironic that Apple with their OS locked down tighter than a gnat's ass and a rather pissweak software selection (at the time of that ad) is making adverts about setting you free.

What, so you get set free from a PC only to be enslaved by the apple hype?

All I see is a big white box in the OP, using Chrome on Windows 7.
