Mind blown!  Games bought!

I got it just for Portal, because it is cheaper than buying Portal by itself. If you tell me how, I would be happy to gift the other games to whoever wants them.

Ok. Never mind then. Does anyone want my TF2 guest pass?

You can only gift Half Life 2 and Episode 1 provided you already had them on your account before you bought the Orange Box. If that is the case, then you can find your gifts listed under Games Menu>Manage Gifts and Guests Passes. You can either send them to an existing Steam account or to a friend's email and they'll get all the info they need to download and create a Steam account as well as activate the gift on Steam.

I have both versions. Not sure which one I like better. Portal is the ish, regardless!

No biggy as my local Micro Center run the same deals for pre-orders. This weekend if you pre-order Cyrsis Maximum Edition, when it release next month, you get it for $9.99. They do this all the time for big titles. I would rather have physical media in hand than a digital download that may or may not work properly.

Orange Box is tied to Steam even if you buy it retail so you wind up using Steam regardless if you get it retail or digital. Plus during install the first update is mandatory. Also, if you want to play TF2 all updates are mandatory.

 In this case, you're stuck dealing with digital either in future installs or patches.

I'm glad you guys posted this.  I just bought a copy for a friend.  I'm not much of an FPS person, and when I tried playing the HL2 demo I got motion sickness, but my friend's the sort of guy who will love this.

Lol motion sickness. If you played wolfenstein 3d, i can understand but these games? I dont think so.
Maybe you should try maximum settings so it seems real enough that you dont get motion sickness

I used to get motion sickness in Half Life 2 on the highway level back when I had a 21" crt and that was with most settings maxed. That was when driving the dune buggy though. When I got a 24" widescreen lcd I fired up HL2 and didn't get sick during that level, but before then it was hell to play through it.

I agree with STEAM being a very buggy application, but strongly disagree on the game quality. Nevertheless, when I bought the game (s) today, I had to completely uninstall STEAM, delete the Program folder, delete the Registry Keys and every other possible trace. But when I got STEAM up and running, I was playing HL2 for about an hour, and I already have it for the 360, just shows how much of a fiend I am for HL haha

 I know I am going to get flamed somehwere along the line for saying this, but not one of those games hold a shred of interest to me, especially since Steam lock up and makes my computer freeze or makes it slow every single time I use it.  So really, this Oragne Box thing is of no use or interest to me whatsoever.

Saw it this morning, bought the games and been downloading ever since. lol  Six games for 10 bucks is a great deal.  :D

Fyi, if you already own some of the included games, Steam gives you the option of gifting them individually. That's rad.

If you can't afford a decent computer and "need" these games. I personally waited until I got my new computer built but they fixed the HL2 Xbox port problems.

 It's still a better experience on the PC though.

Why would you buy any kind of Valve game for the 360?

avatar

DBsantos77

Do YOU have it for the 360? If not, then you wouldn't understand.

avatar

E.M.

I have played the 360 version of TF2, and the PC version is still better

You can buy it for ten bucks, for the retail box at Wal-Mart and other places, and thats here in Canada (thats about 8 bucks US).

WTF!??!!?! $10?!?!?!?! It's worth it just for TF2: the best multiplayer team shooter E-V-E-R!!! Buy this even if you've never played computer games, don't even own a pc or couldn't give a rat's arse: because you will. Support the team that made this game so they can continue to enrich our lives and make the world a much better place.

I bought Orange Box on PC like a year ago but at this price, it makes me want to buy it again :-P I'm eagerly anticipating a 75% off Mass Effect weekend deal.

Thanks for the heads up.

I am getting these games now. :)

Maximum PC's news section is awesome!

avatar

I have the Orange Box for the 360, but it's very tempting to buy it for PC too!

avatar

The Relic

Yeah, wouldn't you know it, I go and purchase this for the XBox 360 and then this happens (had bought Portal as soon as it became available as a separate purchase)...at that price, hell I'll buy it again!

avatar

Marsel

FIRST! cool, though. only $10...
