    Yup!

    Bought it via Steam over a month ago... I downloaded it right away and now I´m just waiting :)

    I have beginners GAS, so I don't have any money to spend on games. Plus, I went $50 over budget on my bass. I won't be buying Half-Life 2 for awhile. Maybe I'll look around on BitTorrent...

    Nah, I'm still saving up for one of those 70 Teraflop IBMs so I can run it.

    Most excellent! And I would not classify this thread as a spam..

    What do you do at Steam if I may ask?
    B.t.w. I personally like the concept behind Steam very much! :hyper:

    Software mostly. There's a lot of miscellaneous - ops, support (for a while, thankfully there's now a big crew of nice folks to take care of that), etc, too. Glad to hear you like it - it's nice that a lot of the initial negativity has faded.
     
  11. Yep, I bought it. Im just playing CS: Source to pass the time. Once some of the bugs are fixed it'll be a great game as well.

    It just sits on my computer at home, but I´m at work so I cannot play it until this evening :)
     
  17. Mission acomplished. Registering now! (I've got it preloaded already, so no need to install)

    I got it for free with a video card I bought about ten months ago. Now I'm just waiting for it to show up in the mail. :)

    BTW, I love the Steam interface. It's the ONLY reason I still play HL1 anymore... I wish the hacking on CS could be reduced.

    What are the hardware requirements for HL2?
