The Orange Box Turns 10

The Team Fortress 2 blog notes the 10th anniversary of the original release of The Orange Box, which bundled Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal all on one package, as games used to be distributed in places called stores on these things called DVDs. True to the blog, the post focuses on TF2, though they also reveal that Valve was never happy with how The Orange Box was marketed at the time. Speaking of unhappiness with how things were marketed, there's this little matter of being promised a three-part episodic expansion for Half-Life 2 that's gone without a part three for a decade now, but we're not getting our hopes up that we'll ever hear anything more about this, much less ever get to actually play it.

Still got my Orange Box box sumwhar. It was awesome.

Installing Steam to run it sucked tho.
A decade? Dang. I remember buying from a local Best Buy store to pricematch. The gal refused at first too. Jerk.

Anyways, this Orange Box was worth it! I didn't think I would like Portal 1 too, but I was wrong. TF2 was OK. I got rid of the retail box and discs a few years ago at work though. I kept my account and key though.
