Okay, but this story is only about those 3 games mentioned. No where does it say in the story anything about HL2, the original. Im not sure if it even is coming out or not on PS3, but it has nothing to do with this story as of right now. So no more reports Please.

I've already preordered the Orange Box for the PC even though I wanted the Black Box. Oh well, now I gotta find someone who wants to buy HL2 and HL2:EP1.

I was looking forward to TF2 as well because i was a super hardcore player of TFC. But valve took away bunny hoping and regular grenades throughout the entire game. No more priming or anything. Plus i think there is air control now, but don't quote me on that one. Big disappointment for me. Oh well, Hopefully Fortress Forever comes out soon.

P.S. I'm not sure about the pc, i think the admins can change respawn time to nothing, but the console version might have respawn times as well.
