    No ... but if they think that's the case we may be able to add a few notches to our bansticks. ;) lol

    Post your feelings about the game, gents, just don't spool spoil it for other people.

    This friend of mine on Facebook owns a rental stores and rented it to himself for free early.

    This is what he has had to say about it.

    It's funny, but I never did finish the first one, lol. I lost my place in the game (no cloud saves back then) and I never went back to it, but it was very good. I did about two thirds of it.

    And yeah, if you haven't played HL2 yet, then you've missed out in life! Let me tell you, I seldom finish a single player game, because of one reason or another. Now, HL2 is a long game and I've finished it not once, not twice, but three times! Yes, it's that awesome. :rockout: The two EPs are just as good too, if a bit short.

    I reeeeeeeeeally want this game and I have a secret piggy bank for when Episode 3 came out so I would be ready it! but now I am saving for an upgrade and can't but any games right now.:( I really hope they explain how GLaDOS returns or continues from the open ending of the first Portal.


    "if you haven't played HL2 yet, then you've missed out in life!"

    That is the best line ever:rockout: There are many people that finished the episodes with even playing the first or second ones. You should really go back and play the first one, I know it has aged a bit (play the source version, it's a little better graphic wise)but that does take away from the awesome gameplay...the ending is the best part!!!:toast:

    Half-life is a bit off-topic but I'll comment as well.
    I tried playing both HL1 and HL2 and quit after less than 30 minutes. Just so friggin boring (to me!).
    I never liked FPS games in single player and as good a story as those games may have, I just can't force myself to play them.

    But, I did spend several years of my life playing Half-life in multiplayer :) That was a blast


    *puts on anti-flame shield and ducks before HL fans attack*


    As for Portal 1 - I loved every second of it's (short) gameplay :)

    They should have some kind of user level editor for the multiplayer co-op. That would be epic!

    I am sure they will, although since this is a new rendition of source, it may not be available on day one.

    So the game will be released on the release date. I'm happy I didn't get suckered in to buying some indie game pack... Though I bought a couple that looked good.

    still, a few hours earlier works for me. ETA for current release is 6:30PM, every hour helps me out.

    I agree, I think it's super cool to be able to release it even an hour early. It's a neat idea.

    Same thing happened to me, and it happened conveniently right after I was VAC banned :shadedshu I'm thinking they got in, hacked to high hell, got me VAC banned and then used the account all they liked because I was extremely pissed at Valve and stopped playing anything on Steam for 1.5 years. Keep in mind I had that account since the CounterStrike 1.5 days.

    Skoot to 3 months ago and my friend gifted me TF2 because he knew how much I played on my old account pre-banning. I make a new account and find my Orange Box serial number. I very calmly wrote a support ticket with an attached picture of my serial number and they fixed it within a few hours. I got my old (apparently) partially VAC banned account back and I have a new account that's free and clear. My old account is VAC banned from TF2, all of Half Life 2 online playing but NOT from L4D, CounterStrike (original), Team Fortress Classic, or Killing Floor.

    Short version: Make a support ticket with a pic of your serial attached and you should be ok.

    It will be released tomorrow. I have to work, so I won't get a chance to play tomorrow.
    So ... I took the rest of the week off :D
