    If you are like me and use Steam (steampowered.com) to purchase all Valve games, then you know that sometimes it takes a while to download the games.

    Their newest Orange Box is the biggest download I've ever purchased from Steam and I have to say right now I wish I had a faster internet connection.

    All of the new files required to play JUST Team Fortress 2 add up to just under 7 GB. That's not even counting the Half-Life 2: Episode 1 & 2 that also come with it. So far Episode 1 seems to be extremely big as well.

    I'm not complaining at Valve, just my slow internet connection. After all, the bigger the game files, the better quality the game should be. Hopefully that's the case at least.

    I'm at 60% after just over 24 hours of downloading TF2 and Ep1 right now. Could be another day or two before it finishes at this rate. :(

    Hopefully it is as good as the previews make it look

    Not going to happen before the 10th, but I hope to get it in at least a month or so.

    Well it finally finished downloading. I have to say it's pretty awesome so far. 2fort is back, which is great because that was my favorite level from the original.

    The cartoonish look goes well with the gameplay actually. And don't worry, just when you think it's a little too "kiddy" you see somebody get blown to pieces, literally. Let's just say it's the most violent "cartoon" game I've played. In true original Half-Life style, body parts fly everywhere when grenades go off.

    Ouch.

    That would take god only knows how long for me... considering how my campus meters my bandwith, and likes to downthrottle me..... Well, that, and my 5gb bandwith a day cap.

    I'll just get a physical copy.

    Can you play the physical copy without a CD though? That's the best part about buying it through Steam. I hate having to load CD's each time I want to play a game.

    Man you finally finished up, wow. I would hope it was awesome after the time you just took to download it.

    It sounds great, can't wait to get it.

    My friends have been trying to get me into HL2 for some time now, as I believe you have, too, Andrew. That's quite the massive download, and I give you props for sitting it out.

    My biggest so far is 20+ gigs, and it took around two weeks.
