If you don't have the Orange Box, now's the time to grab it! Steam's Weekend Deal this weekend is the OB for 66% off, which translates into the price being US$9.99.

So that's Team Fortress 2, Portal, Half-Life 2 + Episode 1 & 2 for just under AU$15 or so. Definitely no excuse not to grab it if you've been meaning to pick them up! promoted/edited forum item

Back when it was first released in 2007 you could pick the orange box up for $50 and it was a bargain at that price as well.

Well I got it and I already have HL2, it popped up and said since I own one of the games already I can give someone else a full copy (of HL2) as a gift now.

Only thing i didnt have was portal/eps. For that price it was still worth it
darkjedi
Posted 08:40am 26/4/09
Portal is definitely worth it for that price. Getting the rest of the stuff is a bonus!

Posted 10:36am 26/4/09
I'm missing portal and TF2, got the rest, this is a damn shame..

Posted 11:53am 26/4/09
I thought you'd be crazy to not have bought it on the day of it's release??
WetWired
Posted 12:23pm 26/4/09
I got it on release (I think it worked out to be AU$55 at the time and that was easily the best money I've ever spent on a game, I already had HL2 and EP1. Portal was awesome and I still play TF2 daily, it would have been worth it for TF2 alone, you'd be an idiot for passing this up and should be banned permanently from this forum if you don't.

That is all

Just purchased.

Even though i cant see myself playing any of it any time soon.

Meh it's the cost of a nandos burger meal.

Yeah i got it too.

Just played some TF2 as sniper was alright. Probably get my $10 worth of playtime later.

Yep just got it myself - too good a deal to pass up.

There is an internode steam server, right? Is there a way to connect to it and not have the downloads count to your cap?

Yep - View -> settings -> downloads. it's not 100% reliable but will improve your chances.

Apparently Internode don't count data from any Australian content server towards your cap, so even if you get an iiNet or GameArena server, you should be fine.

yer it sucks. i have mine set to telstra but it always downloads from internode :/
Hogfather
Posted 07:04pm 26/4/09
How can you tell which one it is downloading from once it starts?

Sorry, Steam nubcake!

Posted 07:14pm 26/4/09
The way I do it is instead of letting it update normally I double click wahtever game it is and it has a advertising window of whatever server it is updating from.
Hogfather
Posted 07:17pm 26/4/09
Ohh cool - double click and got the games.on.net thingy.

2 good a deal to ignore. Now to find room on me drive.

Posted 04:40pm 27/4/09
another way is go into command prompt and type in netstat
to see all connections.. there should be one that says something like steam1.internode.on.net
