Been playing for about two hours and picked up the SMG. So far my only complaint is the loading time. Its not so bad in game but the first time it loads it takes forever.

The physics are your friend, take advantage of them because if you don't the enemy will.

*yawn* My brain is totally fried. I've gotta get some sleep before daylight.

Said it was "unlocking", and now says I only have 50% of the game download completed

In addition I had accidentally told it to download Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes and have no way to tell it to stop, so it's eating my bandwidth. Guess I'll find out what happened in about 6 or 7 hours. :P

edit: never mind, it's going faster now. Still, I was expecting the unlocking to only take a few seconds, not 15-20 minutes. Oh well! Gonna start playing in a bit!

Does anyone suffer stuttering problem?
My hdd reads and rings too hard, and the games stutters with sounds repeating.
I am now defragging hdd again, though i did it about a dozen days ago.
And the loading seems like taking forever...

Yeah I get stuttering in sections but not as bad as I did with Doom 3. The game is amazing, my eyes were lit up when I got into it but you don't get long enough to rest. Action! I got to the airboat level and left it behind so I was walking through that section
It's lived up to my expectations so far.

Runs smoother than a smooth thing from smooth city here, if you are running less than 1GB of ram these days for games, you are still living in the stone age.

Hmm...
I got 512mb ram. And I had no problem with D3, with my rig.
I thought HL2 was less demanding than D3?

Anyone know where to go when you get to the area with all those Explosive Barrels in ONE room and all the Manhacks? I'm confused.
