What do you mean what I got?

A little late to this, but I still haven't played it. Going to get through HL2 first then go on to Episode 1. Been working 12 hour shifts lately (lots of sorties to fly :x), so time is limited.

Sabre,
Someone said in this thread that what they got was not the full version.
I thought you might know what you got. Anyways, enjoy what you got. :lol:

After several back and forths with Valve, It was determined that their idea of a full version does not include online play. (deathmatch) Apparently that only came with the retail box version of HL2 and not the download.

Correct. Full version only means full story mode.

Heard it was good.....mind you valve have got a great track record so far with games...

I am going to be really torn now as to what game to get next....COD4, Crysis or the orange Box...

Episode 2 seems very short to me. Working on chapter 6 and just found out that 7 is the end. Oh well, Crysis is next. Surely will take longer on it.

Ya, I just finished Episode 2 last night. Disappointing that it ended where it did, but it is an amazing game, so no regrets. There has to be a HL3. Theres no way it ends like that. Question is, when will it come out.....and will there be cake?
