I own Half Life 2 on Steam. And during last week’s Ultimate Game Sale, I bought the Orange Box on Xbox 360 (I used own the disc based game, sold it off years ago). I have missed Portal… although I also own that on Steam. I just couldn’t resist the temptation to go back through Portal with a controller, and re-live Half Life 2 with a mouse and keyboard.
I’m not looking forward to driving through barren wastelands in a noisy car assembled out of someone’s plumbing. Nor the subsequent roaming around in sewer pipes near a canal. What a pain that part is. But I have a feeling that I’m going to be flashing back a little bit and playing me some Orange Box on the my Xbox 360 this weekend! Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure it’s too late for any level 1 newbies to start playing Team Fortress 2.
