So i just bought Hl2 Orange Box for my 360.  Thing is, I own Hl2 for my PC.  Why did I do it?  Because of 2 things:

1.  Valve is really good at making games.  They are also really good at DELAYING said games, but they always turn out tremendously awesome.

2. Valve knows they have the one game that can justify the ridiculous price of $60.00 for a 360 game.  With 5 games in the package - 4 of which I dont have before this, they knew they were getting me.

Anyhoo, its a great deal and looks better on my lcd tv than on my pretty dated PC.  I seriously need a pc rig attached to my tv that could run crysis - THEN i would of waited for that, but my pc would crumble at even the thought.

I did the same damn thing.  I got the Orange Box from Gamefly and after playing Portal and Episode 1 I decided to pay for it and keep it.

Now I wish I had three of them so that I could do a parody of that YouTube guy that was talking about how he had 3 PS3s. Except mine would be a lot more, um, wild.

I originally bought the first one for myself and picked it up the night of release. Then I got to thinking about it and I thought that I might get just a regular edition to play and keep the limited one unopened.

Well, when I got to the store, they had a second one that the original reserver decided that they couldn’t afford or want any more so after about 10 minutes of thinking about it, I decided to get it.

Funny thing, I saw yet another one about a week later at the same store. But I was broke so no “I have 3 Holo 3 Legendary Editions and you have no Legendary Edition” parodies for me.

P.S. I’ve decided that I’m going to try to get my nephews by my youngest sister an inexpensive 360 and give them one of the Legendary Editions. They’re big fans at 8 and 12 but only have the original X-box. And sure, my nephew by my older sister also loves Halo (he’s the reason I bought an x-box and Halo - so we could play online together like we used to on the PC with Age of Empires) but he’s 18 and can buy his own system and game himself.

Halo is an M-rated game. At the very least, tell me they won’t be on Xbox Live.

Thanks for bringing that up. I don’t think I was clear on that.

Yes, they are young so I will be consulting with my sister as to when to give it to them. It may not be Christmas of this year but as they apparently already play the firdt two, I’m not sure that anything in the third would exceed what they’ve already seen. Still, that is for my sister and her husband to decide when they can have it. I will let her know what I’ve experienced in the game both multiplayer and single player so she will have an informed decision.

Secondly, they don’t have a live account because they can only afford dial-up at present. Once they do get an account, I plan to instruct my sister to restrict their accounts to only be able to play with me and their school friends ( I think that’s possible).

Thirdly, they still need a 360. The Xbox that they have is used and as you know, incapable of playing next-gen titles. I may be able to do something for them about this this Christmas but no promises.

At one point I had four copies of Morrowind. One for the XBox, one for PC, one GotY edition for PC (It had the expansions) and then another copy of it came with a graphics card I bought.

As long as you’re not releasing another profanity-spewing, spoiled little brat into the world of Xbox Live, I’m fine with it. I hate the kids like that on XBL….

Oblivion helps with that a lot. There’s actually a quest arrow.

As do I. My sister’s pretty good about manners and I’d back it up by telling them that if I found out that they can not control their toungues that the game comes back to me immediately.

I’m not a fan of the quest arrow. It removed the searching aspect of the game for me and turned into grinding on an MMO where I’m just getting the job done as fast as I can to get the reward.

I just realized I’m way off topic.

Eh, I’ve seen that argument go around the internet enough I know how it’ll turn out. So many people don’t seem to realize that personal prefrence and stone-cold facts are two vastly different things. On that note I do prefer Morrowind and it would be interesting seeing said argument in an environment where people might not degenerate into name-calling. wink
