Re: looks like hl2 is preloading
too busy for me, but it really doesn't matter anyway. Valve has really been smart about the whole thing. I remember thinking, why would I buy hl2 online and wait to download the whole thing with a bunch of other guys hogging bandwidth when i can buy it in the store and just install it. It is cool how they're doing it, now lets see what the price difference will be.
I think I'm gonna but it in a store and just punch in the cdkey into steam. That way I can see how it all works out over steam and if something crazy happens to either steam or i lose internet without logging in before or whatever i have a hard copy i can run. Good news though, hopefully it comes out sometime soon!
