Portal is on the backburner while I work on completing HL2: Episode 2. I think I am about a quarter the way through, played all morning before work :cool:

It's. Released?
Will. Have. To. Install. It. Then. :).
Lol! Yes, in the UK it's only available on Steam at the moment, but it's so awesome! The only problem is the length, I finished it in 3 hours including distractions such as dinner. However, I guess it's quite replayable as there are bonus maps and extra challenges unlocked once you finish the game.

What's this cake all about though??

Having heard it was quite short I decided to get Portal done and out the way first, as I knew that if I started EP2 I'd continually get distracted by Portal! Onwards and upwards anyway, hopefully. What's EP2 like anyway, I've not read any reviews yet for fear of ruining any surprises?

I want it. Bad.

Can someone tell him how the purchase goes? I see its $50 for the Orange box but I don't need HL2 and EP1 again! Can't I just get the new content (The Black box before it was canceled) or am I stuck paying for stuff I already own?

It was like 40 and change for the orange box pre oct 10th.

Cool people like me got it before hand :D

Included in the Orange Box is Episode 2 (very cool game so far), Portal (very different and you actually use you mind :D ) and Team Fortress 2, for me, the Game of the Year, hands down.

You also get HL2 and Episode 1 but if you already own them, you can give them away to someone who doesn't already have it. They sign up a steam account and then receive it or something. Very easy :cool:

Please tell me its more then 19 levels. This is pure joy! I haven't tried out EP2 or TF2 but I'm sure they are good too. Well worth the price.

It's 19 levels and a few bonus things I believe. I played a few last night before getting motion sickness from it and thought it was awesome :D

I love the commentary from the facility computer though :D

Just got the Orange box since I didn't own any of the titles. My main objective was getting TF2, the others are gravy :)
Spent some time with a friend's HL2 install previously, I was quite impressed with it.
After messing around trying to get the ATI 7.10 drivers installed, I finally dove in and tried TF2 out alone.... pretty neat :) Now to check out the other stuff hehe

PS. I'm new to this steam thing, people mind sharing their ID for the friends list?
