Who's getting Half Life 2? (Vid)

I can't wait for this game now. I've been watching some vids, and they got me all hyped up. Looks like I'm gonna blow another $50 on a game.

That's the video from E3 a year or so ago, the physics and interactive environments are incredible. I can't wait!

The game is released 11/16/04, so Wal-Mart will have it tonight, or tomorrow everywhere else. I'm getting my coopy for $45, I'm getting $10 off.

The WalMart's around here aren't releasing it until mid-day tomorrow. And you can't preorder from Best Buy.

Yes. Go to www.steampowered.com, there are several packages you can buy.

You can "predownload" the game now, if you want to buy it. You buy it online, download it, but won't be able to actually activate it through steam until tomorrow.

If there is one thing of Valve's that I am NOT a fan of...it is Steam....

It's the same thing, for the most part. YOu will install all the game files from CD/DVD then validate through Steam. I think...

Still awesome. Better than the first, better than Halo2. Just awesome.

I just wish I wasn't having problems with my machine locking up at random.

Bastards! I bought the retail version so I could (hopefully) get a nice manual and a decent case for the CDs. Neither! Lol, I know, it's petty shit, but things I wanted...

Same for me. Took me about two hours to get a Steam account set up to boot. Bastages. But the game is awesome.

Luckily I set mine up before I even got HL yesterday. Avoided even MORE waiting.
