    It's now 4am in my part of the world, and I've played Ep1 a lil......I'm stuck at the falling debris/elevator part. I have to stop coz I've got to get up early for work......damn VALVE for this addictive game!

    I'm SO pissed off at Valve! I just tried 3 different credit cards to order the game and it would accept none of them. How on earth will I be able to buy this game if no card I have (2x Visa, 1xMC) is accepted??? My guess is that it's some sort of American issue, US shops constantly have trouble with non-US credit cards. BUt hello people, this is the modern world, shouldn't a company that tries to revolutionize the way we buy games be at least able to let you buy the game???

    Thats cos anything American doesnt accept switch/maestro. Credit cards only (not debit cards) so Visa or Mastercard.

    Played the first hour or so. Really liking it. Its great. Picks up right where u end HL2. Not gonna say anything about wot happens... I'll leave that for u guys to find out for yourselves! :)

    It's nice to play a FPS with a storyline to it, kinda was forgetting what it was like. I thought the updates to the graphics were very nice as the HDR works far better than any other game I have played. The first part of the game has a shot of the sun blinding you just as it does in the real world, very, very good. I might also mention it plays very smooth (few studders as things load but not bad although Oblivion will soften anyone up in this area, lol)@ 1024x768 4XAA 8XAF everything maxed or on high. If anyone mentions I should be playing at a higher rez, enjoys playing under 60fps;)

    So far the game is worth every penny:dave:

    Runs perfect at 1600x1200, 4xAA, 16xAF + HDR. Very happy with the performance in this game. No other game that looks as good as this one, plays so smooth.

    If you like HL2 then you're going to like this. SO far it's not bad. It still have that long-ass loading time, but I'm used to it by now.

    it's definitely fun and looks great. no problems running it at 1280x1024 with HDR, 4x AA and 8x AF, except for the occasional stutter (which i thought the latest source code update was supposed to eradicate).

    Bought and finished....well worth the $20 IMO. Was better than the main game...heh. I think valve learned from HL2 and made great adjustments to make HL2:EP1 better!

    I got 10% discount as i preloaded it, so my Credit Card bill came out at about £11.50 for it. So i recon about £12.50ish full price.
