Orange Box?
« on: October 12, 2007, 11:46:29 pm »
Did anybody get the orange box? Omg Team Fortress 2 looks so cool. Also portal seems awesome. Half Life 2 is okay i guess? What you think about the Orange Box?

I just love the new look of Team fortress 2 just so cartoonish. The characters and everything look cool. Especially the spy. I'm gonna' draw the spy right now, he's so cool.

EDIT: Change over time is amazing.

Holly crap, I was just gonna ask you guys about it!

Portal looks fun! I'll buy that alone as a last resort.
Is Team Fortress 2 as fun as it sounds?
What do I need Half Life 2 for??? Isn't that one of those play once and toss out games?

It's the complete opposite. With the ridiculous amount of mods and custom maps out for it, you'll be enjoying yourself for quite a while.. I've been playing it for about 2 years now.

You can't. You've gotta buy the package that comes with all five games, The Orange Box.

As for myself, I just beat Portal yesterday and I'm around the beginning of EP2. I was really impressed with Portal; it has a really unique atmosphere and the story is kind of captivating, albeit simple. Plus the gun turrets are just so damn cute- I knocked one over and it said "I don't hate you."

EP2 is pretty awesome so far as well, the blood effects are vastly improved... but I can't comment much on the graphics otherwise, as my X1300 doesn't seem to do the job on high settings anymore.

Thats odd. I always though Steam was a game engine not a game community.

* bja888 Just bought said box

That's a common misconception. The name of the game engine that runs Half-life 2 and the like is actually Source.

Steam is a better engine name.

I have mine pre-ordered (retail)....too bad we here in europe get it a bit later, but its good so i quess i can handle the few more days of waiting. I have been half-life fan since the first game, i have all of them...HL1, blue shift, opposing force...AND decay for playstation 2 :D.

I would have bought HL2 much earlier but my old compu sucked so i had to wait untill now (actually im glad i had to wait, OB is awsm deal).
the day microsoft makes something that doesn´t suck, is the day the make a vacuum cleaner.

portal just looks so awsome, escpecially the team fortress game i wanna buy it. by the way, I found a game thats all just like portal, except its 3d, and its only 5mb, its a good game to see what the real portal will look like.

Portal: Beat campaign in 3 hours. Gonna do bonus maps as soon as I get some work done.

And maybe maps with commentary.

Was fun! I recommend it!
