Got a goosebump hearing GladOS again, don't tell girls and cool people I said that.

If that is indeed the launch date, I'm SOL until next week too. Although it does mean I can grab the data files on my weekend connection instead of my midweek abortion.

There's a chance it's just another red herring though. Billions of things have happened in the past week related to the potato pack thing.

On Steam, it downloads and installs early. The minute the game is released, it unlocks and you're playing it.

I'm starting to doubt that it will unlock today/night. Considering what they've invested in the PS3 version, they can't possibly give it to PC and make the PS3 crowd wait. The shit will hit the fan.

i'm preloading now. maybe i'll get to play it for 10 mins tomorrow

dbb: not sure if serious but preloading downloads the game to your pc via steam, then come release time you only have to get a tiny unlocking patch instead of the whole thing.


grr no local content servers have it yet. Boo metered. maybe i'll pause & get it when i come back from OS

apparently it's about 10GB

my preload has 2% to go. Nowhere near 10gb downloaded. probably closer to 3gb. I guess that's coz i have a stack of source engine installed already that it might use

I don't know if I do, that's half the problem. Haven't bought too many games as of late, and I don't have TF2 installed any more. If I didn't have house mates to worry about I'd just smash it out.
