A lot of us saw the makings of a Doom3 case mod....which come to think of it I haven't seen the progression in quite some time. Anywho here's a really insane HL2 case mod.

He went all out on this:

It's pretty amazing, that case looks like it could easily compete with a lot of the cases of the market today. People would pay good money for something like that.

No kidding dude. He could fetch a pretty penny if he decided to sell that bad boy.

I don't even have a plasma cutter, much less the skills to do anything that awesome

I saw that case mod a little while ago, and i thought it was amazing. I especially like how the insides of the case have been themed as well. And also i like the green water cooling liquid.

WHAT??

HL2 is worth the 55$. CSS isnt. CSS looks nice, it needed a visual upgrade, but nothing new yet. Not that many maps or mods either. It wasnt a good upgrade, hopefully dods will make up for that. HL2 is such a great game, if your pc can run it.

I dont know what yon has against hl2 but it is so much better than doom3.
