Ok so if my brother comes over, installs HL2 off of the 5 cd's, logs himself into Steam - will we be able to play it right away? Isnt there another "check" that it has to do that takes like 15min or something? Or does it download the whole game again even though its installed off of the 5 cd's? Argh, that shit is confusing.
Also theorhetically, from what I have read can't someone who bought an online package (IE Bronze) and went to a friends house - logged in - downloaded the game - then set it to play in "offline mode" - spread the game around to as many people as he wanted? (The single player portion atleast).
