Ships Ahoy - Half-Life 2: The Orange Box

Valve announces that The Orange Box is now available, offering Half-Life 2, its first two episodic follow-ups, Team Fortress 2, and Portal:

October 10, 2007 - Valve®, a leading entertainment and technology studio, is pleased to announce the availability of The Orange Box for PC on Steam (www.steamgames.com).

The Orange Box features three top-rated new games by Valve: Half-Life® 2: Episode Two, the second installment in the Half-Life 2 episodic trilogy; Team Fortress® 2, the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map; and Portal, the game that blends puzzles, first person action, and adventure gaming to produce an experience like no other.

To bring gamers up to date with the Half-Life 2 universe, The Orange Box also includes Half-Life 2, the best-selling and highest-rated action game series of all time, and the episodic debut Half-Life® 2: Episode One-together, more than 30 hours of award-winning gameplay. Purchasers of the PC version of The Orange Box who already own Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode One can conveniently "gift" them to a friend from within Steam.

The Orange Box is now shipping to retailers and will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.95 on the PC and $59.95 on the Xbox® 360 console system. Contact your local stores for details.

Dagok, if you're worried about experiencing things before you die (and you will die), then I find it just hilarous that your #1 concern is a fuckin' video game.

Gas saved is fine as long as it doesn't cost more money to save the gas; because then you'd just be an idiot. Especially if you tried to justify your purchase. But I know you wouldn't do that...

Anyway, you're right; I won't be playing TF2 for at least 6 months because I don't believe that any game is worth more than $20. You don't want more physical property taking up your limited space and I don't want to spend more than $20.

BTW: someone stated that the games are tied to your steamID and this is true; however, because Valve isn't entirely stupid and they realize that people do sell their old games, they do provide a transfer service for a new keycode for the game free of charge.
