I still cannot shake off the feeling that the orange box is what we Germans call "Abzocke".
I won't pay that much money for games I already HAVE! I would have bought the Black Box, but (SURPRISE!) Valve cancled it to make even more money. And I thought Mircosoft was terrible... :mad:

Well, you CAN just buy Portal, TF2, and Episode 2 seperately, but that all comes out to about $80.  Plus, you can give your extra copies of HL2 and Episode 1 to friends/family as Christmas gifts.  It's not all as bad as I think you think it is.
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

I think they're just trying to 'encourage' you to buy it on Steam. They make more money that way too y'know ;)

Ahh, but Portal is awesome; For me the best game in the pack!

I actually went out and bought it! (And they think piracy COSTS them sales...)

So now I have a licence to play my Pirate (Arr!) Steam-free version of Portal! \o/
And the box is still in shrinkwrap so I can sell it easier later :D

I wish I'd played EP2 before playing Portal 'tho... EP2 SUCKS if you play it right after playing Portal :(

It's the song. It just won't get out of your mind!

I kept humming it through the course of the game "This was a triumph! D, Bm, D, Bm..."

 
Is it just me, or were the makers of Ep2 and Portal feeling just a little bit... psychotic?

Well, I decided hell with it, and actually bought portal.  Cool game...but wow, is it short.  Took me about 3 1/2 hours to beat the story mode.

Still, it's a puzzle game, and a damn fun one, so chances are there will be homemade puzzles.

I'm convinced someone on the dev team for Portal was a /b/tard.

I mean really?  Delicious Cake?

Just spent the weekend playing episode 2. Good stuff; certainly wasn't a let down in terms of the previous installments and has definately left me waiting for the final episode. It was fairly easy though, even on hard. And the end was a bit of a downer. Now I just have to give the commentry a run through.

Looking forward to portal too from what I hear bout it.
Watch out for the Guns! They'll getcha!

Oh god. It suddenly struck me that that's probably what they would look like in real life. That's really sort of depressing.

Did the delicious cake thing come from Portal, or did 4chan start it?

4chan started it long before Portal was out.

I use a lance made of Dragonforce to pierce the box and gain access to the delicious cake therein.
