Man, I have been spending too much money on games, I can't really afford this. Bioshock and Company of Heroes last month and I still want to get Crysis, maybe Hellgate London, and Guitar Hero 3 for the PC. With the later being 80 bucks I just can't afford it all.

Re: The Official Orange Box Discussion



yeah, I'm really excited about the Orange Box. I will probably be getting it on the PC. One question I have is this. I already have a Steam account and purchased the original Half Life 2 via steam when it was launched. I still think the value of this package is worth it for me but I primarily want a new Steam ID with this package. My son logged in using my steam account on someone's computer that had a hacked version of Counterstrike so I'm VAC banned from all servers using my old account. Will I be able to get a new steam account with this package?

Beat everything HL 2, EP1, &amp; EP 2, &amp; Portal.



End of Episode is intense fight. Not going to spoil it.



The Save all building around the Silo Achievement is BS.





One thing I did notice is if you remember at the end of Episode 1 It shows Previews for Episode 2. They removed it. PC user's might still have it. Not sure if their's a Preview for Episode 3 or not.



btw Episode 3 is the last Episode for the Half-Life 2 Series.

No it's not that. Half-Life 2 is one best shooters ever made. You add Portal which is one most unique games seen in awhile. Than add in TF 2 the best Online game on the 360. You get why TOB gets rated high.

Re: The Official Orange Box Discussion



Well I finished Episode 2 today.



Hot Damn, there is nothing like Half Life. Its simply brings more to the table than any other game I've played. I don't really want to spoil it for anyone but damn..



Such a great game. I enjoyed the second ep. alot more than the first, but they were still both cool. I thought it was cool how they connected Portal to the half life universe.



Can't wait for Episode 3 and whats next..





Now to get some real play time in on TF2. Only tryed it once, but it was pretty fun.

Episode 3 is the last Episode. Wonder what they will do next Half-Life 3? or move onto something Fresh.

Re: The Official Orange Box Discussion



I guess you cant get some of the achievemnts with commentary on.



Got all the cameras knocked down in Portal and it didnt count and I know I got them all.



Do you get it once you beat GLaDOS?



Anyways its cool. The commentary was really cool. More games should do it. Valve is beyond the norm in everything.

not sure what demo contains. Retail version is allot of fun. Half-Life 2 is still one best FPS ever made. Yes it's better than Halo.

Re: The Official Orange Box Discussion



believe it or not, but not every 360 owner thinks halo is the shit.



the reason i'm asking is because i want to play portal, but i'm unsure about the rest of the games on in the box. in the demo i only got to use one gun and solve a couple of minor problems that needed no thinking whatsoever. i hope the retail version has more to it then the demo did.

Re: The Official Orange Box Discussion



Honestly I am only a few hours into Half life 2, played through the first handful of levels in portal, but can't stop playing TF2 now that I have gotten into it. I picked up Orange Box for $25 day after thanksgiving, but after playing it I would have easily payed $50. TF2 is the best game I have played in a long time.

Re: The Official Orange Box Discussion



It's worth way more than $60.



Half Life series &gt; All other FPS



Team Fortress is the best online game out right now (in my opinion of course ) and Portal is amazing as well.



If you've never played the Half Life games, your in for a treat. Episode 2 is extremely cool as well.

Re: The Official Orange Box Discussion



We're finally going to get the updates.


<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">Owners of the Xbox 360 version of Team Fortress 2 will be scarfing down sandviches and delivering payloads later this year, as Valve is finally bringing all the updates delivered via Steam to the Xbox Live Marketplace. That means new, class-specific Achievements, new unlockable weapons for the Pyro, Medic and Heavy, new gameplay modes and new maps, all on your Xbox 360.



Valve marketing director Doug Lombardi got that piece of business out of the way just before our latest Left 4 Dead demo, saying that the developer wanted to build up a massive update for Xbox 360 users before delivering. Given that Valve is being forced to charge for the update, they wanted to ensure that 360 owners were getting their money's worth.



So, how much? The price isn't final, but Valve is hoping to go as low as possible, aiming for a ten dollar price tag. Not too shabby.</div>

-Kotaku







Kinda lame that Microsoft is making them charge but I'll lbe glad to pay it. Love TF2

Last I check Consoles versions of TF2 community was kind of dead. If your going get a value product always get the PC version. bigger community and they will stick with it Plus free Updates.

i got this as a gift and i couldnt wait till the 25th to play. i'm doing portal and half-life 2 now. could someone tell me what happen in the first half-life? i would like to know why i'm being shot but i'm to lazy to look it up. and i love portal. the puzzles are hard but fun. i don't know why but i get a trip out of placing portals close together and looking at myself.

Valve confirmed the development of Episode 3 (http://www.halflife2.net/half-life-2-episode-3) long ago. They've had a team working on it since the release of Episode 1. But since Left 4 dead things have gotten quiet..
