VALVe pwnd me!
 
I thought i was all leet. Some random best buy employee e-mailed corporate best buy saying that gamestop and ebgames was selling half life 2 so they sent a message to all best buys that the street date was no longer valid and to sell it as soon as you get it in. The best buy i work at started selling it on the floor, regular, collectors edition, and the strat guide. After a few hours corporate found out they were the only ones selling it and were liable for fines from vivendi so they msged to pull it from the shelves. Of course i got ahold of my copy.

I get home and open the box to see 5 cds in paper cases, a one sheet instruction manual (weakest manual ever; controls on one side, install on the other) and an ad for the x800 pro. I install it only to find out i need to verify the cd key over steam!!!! so i create an account for it, it accepts it, and i can "play the game as soon as it becomes availiable"!!!!!! WTF!!!! VALVe pwnd me!!

Theres no way to install the game without steam. You have to get online once to verify the cdkey and latch it to an account, then you can play singleplayer in offline mode. Smartest thing ever, but what if you have no net?

ANyway my exciting day turned to shiz. GG VALVe!

then i guess your out of luck, or go over to a friends house who has internet and log onto your account to activate the cd key then log off at his house and go home and play it.

ya yesterday everyone was so hyped up by the enormous bandwith dip but in the end it was nothing. the steam site started crashing and everyone though for sure they would release half life 2 early but it was nothing. they made an official announcement on the news page about people having bought the retail game and can not play.

it sucks

o well 2 more days left, i might as well finish up san andreas

no i have internet i just figured valve would make it so people can play singleplayer who dont have internet. But i guess thats what the single player package is for? they weren't selling that at my work, i think just at like wal-marts they said huh. Anyway its gay... tuesday it is.

So i have to go on steam with half-life 2 to play it offline. Well I guess Valve try to stop piracy once and for all with this Steam shit.

6 and a half hours now, i havent decided if im going to stay up or not, but i dont think i will, anyway i hope an internet connection is on the system requirements box or it may be delayed again for re-packaging.

Re: VALVe pwnd me!
 
I have no problem staying up till 2am but it's a school night and If my parents saw me playing half life 2 at midnight, they would probably disown me, lol, but ya If I wake up at like 4-5am i will prolly get ready for school and have abot an hour of play time.

Here's hoping the steam servers wont crash [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Half Life 2 is the funnest thing i have ever played, especially because i started out by throwing a bottle at the combine police getting them to chase me around with there electric pole things. I think im almost done, but alas homework and school have been interupting me constantly.

Is that not the funniest thing you've ever done in a game! Me and my cousin were cracking up, it was like real life, but them chasing you is so funny, we were trying to find cool stuff to throw at them but the best one is breaking a bottle on their head.

Ya that was pretty neat. I have been playin for about 2-3 hours and im only on chapter 4 but i have been taking in all the beatiful graphics and ive been going slowly through it so I can find all the G-Man Sightings (seen 5 so far) [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Half Life 2 is indeed the best game I have ever played.

Props to Valve

I hate half life 2's ending.

Words i can use on these forums cant describe my feeling towards it.

14 hours, 2 at 4:00 AM tuesday morning, 7 at 4:00PM Wednesday, 5 at 3:00 PM Thursday.

It was phun and i trust VALVe wont wait too long for the third (and hopefully last) Half-Life.

OMG SOMEONE ELSE BEAT IT SO WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT PLEASE!!!!!!!

Re: VALVe pwnd me!
 
I dont think I will be beating HL2 anytime soon as I have been playin it for about 2-3 hours a day since it was released and I just got to Ravenholm. I am taking my time and taking in all the great graphics on my x800 :P
