    Ha Ha got you.

    Ok its not here or anything but I just wanted to mention to people that havent bought CounterStrik CZ or a 9800xt that you can still preload HL2. All you need to do is get a steam account. Alot of people have been saying that only the people that purchased those item can preload the game. The people that have a voucher to get a free HL2 only get it for free not before anyone else. Every one will get the game at the same time. There is no priority release.

    Agreed....it's both boring and useless....and just as a heads-up on this type of advice; How many people do you think are going to use thier steam account for procuring and acquiring HL2? Thousands, bloody thousands.....Do you think Steam has the bandwidth and a suitably stable backbone to support this demand? Hell no!

    My advice? Grab it from the shop shelf when it goes retail.

    well i didnt believe it anyway when i clicked it lol

    steam will cope (just), since they already dished out 500mb preload, which was then decompressed to 1gb, which is a good chunk of the game. Plus there will be more preloads along the next few weeks leading to release.

    If the servers have a heavy load they wont let on endless amounts of people. Valve will of thought about it lol have a little faith :p

    i heard the makers of steam worked with the guy who made bittorrent...hence u're probably uploading what u just downloaded to another person while ur downloading...gotta love peer to peer...i think im right, but oh well...

    That's pretty damn cool, but I still want the box!!
    I was under the(mistaken it seems) impression that HL2 will be shipping on 01/10 - but looks like we'l have 2 wait a weeeeee bit longer - 22/10 latest release date from Valve .Me thinks.
