I love the cube but I'm not sure about purchasing a plushie, I would have loved it if it was plastic.

BTW: That shirt sucks. I like the official one better:

Assume the party escort submission position or you will miss the party.

I must have one of those plushies.

I would like that shirt if it had something on the back, not a big fan of shirts with only print on the front.

SO much portal stuff now that I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but these are too cool to pass up.

Open the box yet? You're almost finished. ;)

But seriously, there are four achievements you get by simply playing through regularly and they are spread pretty evenly throughout the game.

I just got down beating every single game in the box.

Started with Portal...then Half life 2 then ep1 and 2. Took about a month and a half...been really busy.

God I love me some half life and just cant wait until ep 3 comes out.

Hmm, I only have this out for the next four days (got a free rental, and they were all out of CoD4... not that I'd rather have CoD4, it's just I don't expect to be able to finish much of the orange box in five days)... I haven't played Half Life 2 yet (Half Life 1, yes)... should I play through Half Life 2 before going on to the Episodes, or since I only have four days, should I just focus on finishing the episodes, and will I really miss much?

Half-Life 2 is really not that long of game, I finished it in about 3 days... took me 13 hours, and I went out of my way to get a lot of the achievements (even the Lambda cache one.) Stop posting, and get to playing already... you can do it.

I have to jump on the bandwagon and say that I absolutely love this game. Although I'm having a bitch of a time on the advanced version of 18

, the original run through was one of the more satisfying game plays of my life. Great stuff.

I will have a companion cube. If it'll have me back...

I think part of the reason a lot of us absolutely loved it was because it WASN'T hyped up for us. Now that it has been out a while and gotten a huge response, you have expectations and they probably affect how you feel about the game once you play it.

Damn it! I'm stuck on level 19. In the fire pit part. I can't seem to time my jump into the portal right. Any pointers?

I just threw one portal on the far wall (past the railing) and one on the wall to the right. Throw the second portal a little bit ahead and below you.

I've been trying that but I can't get it right. I'll keep trying because I'm so close to finishing the game. But TF2 is taking my time now. I suck royally but it's freakin' awesome. Halo what now???

I FINALLY got a chance to play this - holy shit it's like the best game ever. I'm on level 16 right now and I've been playing just under 2 hours. It has been some of the most memorable gameplay in ages. They just have to make a sequel.

I loved the game but I wish it was a bit harder. I breezed through all the main levels, all the advanced missions, and got a few gold medals in under 3 hours. Way too easy. Hopefully the sequel will have some higher difficulty settings.
