I must also say that I had seen a lot of screenshots prior to getting the game and I didn't think they looked that good... boy was I wrong! Absolutely stunning visuals in this game and an overall atmosphere that really makes you feel whats happening.

In the words of the immortal Mike tyson...

"I take my hand off to Valve... I want to eat Gabe newell's children"

And on that note, perhaps its just because I'm in a rush to get to work but I managed to get a bit stuck fairly early on in the game.

READ NO FURTHER IF YOU DONT WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE GAME

In the part where you are running through the sewers early on in the game. You come out into an area and there are some guards on a bridge (shoot the cans to blow up part of it). Anyway, after killing the guards I can't seem to find my way out of the area? I tried stacking things to jump up on the wall but that doesn't seem to work... unless I just didn't try hard enough. ANyone know where to go?

Far end move the barrels in the low archway. Kindof simple but I ran around that area stacking stuff for about 10 minutes too. :-)

Actually it is pretty easy. Not a walk through but once you figure out how to tackle the area it can be done faily quick. I have died plenty of times though, some parts are a real bitch.

I have gone through a case of Barqs Root Beer already... Im sooo wired its gonna be hell to get some sleep.

Don't worry Rip, the way they're done, theyre designed to be figured out in panic, super fast, get out of here quick. So if you don't you get killed and 30 seconds later your back there again.

I can't seem to create an account. I keep getting the error in the screencap below. Any ideas? It is frustrating to buy a game and not be able to play it because some account can't be created especially when I'm only interested in the single player part.

This is exactly why I created a Steam account after all the pre-loads were done but before the game was unlocked. That seems to have saved a least a little bit of hassle.
