    So I bought the Orange Box having already purchased Half-Life 2 and Episode 1 when they first came out. So I've got two "gifts" from Valve to give away. My gaming friends already have it, or only play online games and wouldn't care for this single player experience.

    So, who wants it? No strings attached, I just want to get rid of 'em

    note: I would prefer to give HL2 & EP1 to separate people, but if there isn't enough interest then I'll gift both of them.

    For this to work I need your e-mail address so Valve can send you the key or however it works.

    well, i want em, but I've already played through both. It would maybe be better to give them to someone who never played them but want to.

    Oh wow, I would love them! [​IMG] I have never got the chance to play HL2 ever... since my PC is so shit... but since I've upgraded... never got the chance to see what the hype was about... and now that Orange Box is out... Makes me more eager to play it, from the reviews its getting.

    Then again, it's up to you who you give it to [​IMG] Just take your time thinking about it.

    You really should play HL1 first... Its a great story, that deserves to be experienced from the beginning (I know you only said you hadnt played HL2, but Im saying it just in case you havent played hl1 either)

    HL2 would be so nice, I have never played it before, and this would probably be my only chance bless you for doing such a good deed even if I don't get it.

    I've played HL1, 2 and pretty much every mod available (Dystopia yea [​IMG]!) but never got around to playing EP1, seems like a great game though [​IMG]. Agreeing with the previous poster really great on your part sharing this stuff [​IMG]. If you feel like giving EP1 to me (not HL2 cause I already have that one and getting that twice would be lame and not really fair) just PM me for my details [​IMG] (btw, mail address and not my steam account name?).

    [EDIT]Ayea, as I meantioned Dystopia I'd figure I'd write a little something about it here (damn my fingers are cold, hard to type [​IMG]). Home-page. If you feel like playing a cool multiplayer mod this is really great. It's in a cyberpunk setting (my favorite) and it's kinda like assault in UT. A big difference however is that there are two worlds with intertwine. The cyber world (you have to jack in a la the matrix, leaving your body defenseless) and the real world. Both worlds have to be used in order to complete the assault. Cyber world unlocks doors and etc. (you can also fight in the cyber world btw, ubut stuff like gravity isn't there as like in the real world) while the real world takes new spawn and jack in points. In short, I recommend this if you have the time (and there are still players online [​IMG]).

    I never played both, but I enjoyed a lot HL1 [​IMG]

    HL2 for me would be enough [​IMG]

    Thank you [​IMG]

    Could be easily fixed by making a new Steam account that is based in the US and A. Would only mean one would need to switch accounts but as these are single player games that doesn't seem like such a problem to me [​IMG].

    I'd really like to have them as well. I haven't really played HL 1 or 2, but a friend highly recommended both games and he is usually right about this sort of thing. I specially want to try out HL2.
