Finishing The Orange Box left us in a state of shock. It wasn’t
Half-Life 2: Episode 2’s requisite cliffhanger ending that floored us;
rather, it was the realization that Episode 2 is the low point of the
entire Orange Box package. Portal and Team Fortress 2 completely
eclipse what Valve bills as the “centerpiece” of the bundle.
This week, Tom, Dave, Will, Gordon, and Jeremy explain how you can play
TF2 and other games with the Maximum PC staff, delve into the future of
digital media distribution, tell you how you can win some gear from the
Maximum PC prize vault, and take a trip to the Lab. Also this week, the
never-ending rain has made Gordon particularly cantankerous, so brace
yourselves for an especially surly rant.
