Sigh, after 10 hours, it's stuck at 28% downloaded. Wonder if I'll get to play it or not. Thanks Valve. Shoulda just pirated it...

The orange box is such a great package

I havent played HL2 for ages but have always been a big fan since the first HL

I loaded up Episode 2 and was totally blown away what a game and the graphics are far better than some new games, not bad for a 3 year old engine

but thats good for us who have new rigs with cards like 8800GTX it runs like a dream with everything maxed out, im getting 180FPS in lost coast - cool
