    Not exactly news, but I think it's worth mentioning. This weekend on Steam, The Orange Box is being sold for $9.99!

    If you still don't have it, now it's the perfect time! This is essential for every FPS fan out there! [​IMG]

    Already paid £16 for it, but whatever its worth it. Portal & HL2 are worth the full price.

    What kind of specs would I need to run these at minimum? My laptop runs Oblivion at just above minimum settings pretty well, but due to the integrated graphics it'll lag some with higher settings or anything more than 800x600.

    The minimum specs are certainly lower then Oblivion, you should do fine..

    But, if you want to be sure.. you can check if your computer can run it on http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest

    Jesus! I mean the regular $50 price is already a steal (5 awesome games for 50 bucks). So now with 10 bucks you get portal, Hl2, Hl2 Episode 1, Hl2 Episode 2, and Team Fortress 2.

    $50? Where have you been?

    It's been $30 for some time now on Steam.

    I'm unbelievably tempted just for TF2. I already have the other games.

    Can we still gift the games? I just want TF2.

    If you already own Half-Life 2 and Episode 1 then you can gift those two, but only if you own them already and only those two games. Can't gift Portal/Episode 2.

    L4D just got a permanent $10 price cut off Steam back when the Survival Pack came out, so now it's $40. That's a start, right?

    too bad my 5 year old laptop can't handle it. The 360 version plays just fine for me.

    Dammit!
    I knew I shouldn't have bought TF2 for 10$ awhile. Could've waited for this >.
