Trying to get The Orange Box installed on my gaming rig, but something strange keeps happening during the installation. I got registered with Steam, under the handle General_Lee_NVNews, but that's as far as I got. I need to break my rig down anyways, clean it, reformat, all that jazz. Then I'll deal with my Steam issues. Can't wait to play with you guys. I was addicted to Half-Life, TFC, and all the other mods. I miss Firearms, that was a great mod, too.

Well, I went and got all the unlocks last night. Force-a-nature is pretty lame compared to the scattergun. Less damage, less shots, and the knockback doesn't make up for it at all. Sandman and Bonk seem pretty useful though, much more so than standard bat and pistol.
