Dammit... I was playing a game waiting for this crap to unlock but it DOESN'T unlock unless you try to launch one of the games.



So... after screwing around for 2 hours, I'm now finally decrypting Episode 2.

I've been playing for 2hrs though. Awesome, feels good to get caught up in a hyped release everynow and again. With the way i play exploring everything I feel there could be a good 6+ hours in it. Then again i wont know till I AM finished.

Beagle is making me have dinner now. I'll be back as soon as i can you play with you guys some more.

Yea Ive got to agree. Never thought the source engine could look so good. Very impressed and I just did the first big fight. I got chills when sh*t broke loose. You know what im talking about if you've seen it. So far I love it. Ill post some screens after a bit. I just needed to bio so thought I would post too while I had it paused.

I was pleased at the download speed if the games this time round. Quite often Steam is very slow when a new game is released. I was getting 380kbps this time. What sort of FPS is peeps gettings? I'm sure it's high, Source games usually are, just wondering.
