Yep I probably will. Just going to buy it in a store. Won't waste my bandwith on getting it through Steam.
It's a shame they deleted the Black Box though but as long as it's cheap it's fine. I'll just have 2 HL2 serials. ^^

Orange Box? Nah, I'll just get Episode 2, already played the first (which was great). No need for Portal and Team Fortress, there are enough good games already this year tongue.gif Bioshock, PGR4, Halo3, CoD4...

I'll give you all a taste of episode two just like i did with episode one

According to the purchase window, he orange box comes with
Half-Life 2
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
Half-Life 2: Episode One
Half-Life 2: Episode Two
Portal
Team Fortress 2
Peggle Extreme
Source SDK
and Source SDK Base

so it's a bit more than advertised. What the hell is peggle extreme? Might be only a pre-purchase gift though. All these HL games are nice, becouse my HL2 wasn't exactly legit. It's from back in the day before i started buying retail. Don't tell steam, i regret my sins and now i'm completely legit. (except for music downloads)

I hope to pre-order it this wednesday and sell teh HL2 key on some forum. I got Episode 1 but it's downloaded so I could use a legit key.

I might upload some screens too when I have it but it's a pain to upload 1680x1050 png screenshots and jpg sucks.

- You could resize them.
- High-quality JPG is great(not the Paint-quality JPG) and smaller in filesize than PNG wink.gif

Resizing blows. Care to enlighten me about the high quality JPG? Too lazy to google it. If it's the JPG Adobe saves as I'll have a go at that.

Anyway, still have to convince my mom to pre-order the game. Report card is a few days after or before the release so if that sucks as usual it'll be hard to get my hands on the game.

Well atleast if you save a JPG with Photoshop, you get a quality bar. And if you slide it all the way to the maximum, the quality is so good you don't notice the difference with PNG, and it's still a pretty small filesize.

If you don't have Photoshop, try Irfanview, I think you can save high-quality JPGs with that too.

It should be noted that many of this year's big games are sequels... industry doesn't dare to take risks anymore.

You couldn't have played black box becouse it was supposed to come out along with the orange box but it got cancelled.

I need Ep2. It's already a tradition to wait for new HL2 episodes and beat them in one sitting (preferrably).

Argh decrypting is so slow

I was expecting my old new videocard to come back today with the mail but it hasn't yet apparently, so my screenshot walkthrough might come a bit late this time. Please don't do one before me, i'd like to keep the tradition up.

You really need to get this! Since the conversion from $ to with steam and even less because of no packaging etc. I get all this for about 25. I think TF2 is worth that by its self. If you dont have this game then somthing is wrong with you and thats the only wat i can describe it.

Yes it's coming for the 360, i believe it's already out. I made the mistake of buying it for the PC, and now i can't play it. I'm gonna sue that damn shop, they've been holding my video card for a month now! It was supposed to be two weeks. Hell, i have no idea why they need even THAT much time.

Bad service. When some of my computer parts are broken I just return them to the shop, they test it and if it doesn't work they give me a replacement if they have it in stock. Otherwise I have to wait maybe a week, at least not a whole month.

I would go complain every day and if there are a lot of people in the store (depends on the store of course, if it's internet based there won't be a lot of people of course) just start yelling about bad service. They'll give in much faster. tongue.gif

Distributed Denial of Service attack. It's just attacking a website so it goes offline due to the huge load. You have plain DoS where you use your own computer and DDoS where you use a group of hacked computers to do the dirty work for you.

Shame it's illegal though. I remember doing stuff like that when I was into game macroing and all the rivalry between forums was going on. Ah good times, good times.

Anyway, back to the Orange Box. biggrin.gif

Still haven't got it and probably won't for a while although I hope otherwise.
