HL:S? Last heard, it looked totally ugly, with Valve not having updated the character models. Same too for the textures. Whats the sitrep on that now? Have any modding teams done the needfull?

@Allyn: LOL! Many of my friends will agree with you on that, especially when I somehow manage to land in college, many hours late, eyes all red due to whole night spent surfing the net. I just make it a point to sleep early on days like today, when I have my exam early next day. But dont be surprsied if you see my post here or SKOAR! at 2 AM. I can hardly keep off this place. :)

He's got the Silver Steam Edition? Man, he bought it via Steam? :shock: As much as I considered doing that, I just couldn't bring myself to punch in my credit card number. I actually entered all the numbers, the CVV number and the expiration date and then slapped myself hard, shook myself out of it and closed the window. :D HL:S has an addon for BlueShift? I thought it was just the contents of the original game (without OF and BS) on Source.

@raj.....dude first off the hook why always double post instead of just editing ur previuos one :?

anyways i guess u missed out on the Gold and Silver one then.....Steam hasnt yet retailed The gold and Silver for Milestone interactive's distribution....but i remember a while ago this dude in the bazaar section had got the Gold edition only a while after its release....also dun any sellers out in ur place have a SA DVD's i mean its like the hottest seller for PS2 out there....Strange man!!!!! :?

Wait a minute, lets clear up one thing first and foremost, these are the ways HL2 is distributed:

HL2 Retail Standard:
HL2+HL2DM(via Update)+CS:S

HL2 Collector's Edition:
Collector's box+HL2+HL2DM(via Update)+CS:S+DoD:S(via Update)+HL:S+Prima Strategy Guide Sampler

HL2 Steam Bronze:
HL2+HL2DM+CS:S

HL2 Steam Silver:
HL2+HL2DM+CS:S+HL:S+DoD:S+Valve's back catalog (HL, CS, CS:CZ, CS:DS, DoD, TFC, HLDM, Ricochet, OF)

HL2 Steam Gold:
HL2+HL2DM+CS:S+HL:S+DoD:S+Valve's back catalog (HL, CS, CS:CZ, CS:DS, DoD, TFC, HLDM, Ricochet, OF)+Posters+Prima Strategy Guide (full)+Hardhat+Collector's Box+Postcards

This last ultra cool package is $84.95 now, which is ~ 3800 INR. All Bronze/Silver/Gold packages can only be ordered via Steam, which means that you will not get the discs at all. So, if even they wanted to, MI cannot distribute the Bronze/Silver/Gold editions. This all has its origins with Valve having a major row with Vivendi Universal Games over them owing money, with VUG wanting money from Valve's Steam Program. So, Valve decided to lower the costs for the end user and throw in a few goodies if you purchased the packs via Steam.

So, you see, Milestone has only the Standard Retail package (which you can see in your confirmation print when you complete the registration of your game on Steam).



So, I dont know the dude was selling off HL2 Gold on Bazaar, unless he meant the Collector's Edition or he was selling off his Steam account itself, which would contain all the games.

@raj: Well, if you want the original, I have a friend coming over from the US in another week, so I could get that for you. No problem!

Nah, man, I already got Valve's back catalog as well as HL2/HL2DM/CS:S so I dont think I am gonna go in for another 3800 bucks just for DoD:S and TFC:S (when it comes out), not to mention the other stuff like the posters, for which I don't have much of use. I was gonna get it before HL2 released on Nov. 16, 2004 and was available here on the 22nd, but I never saw the point of downloading over 5GB of data over Steam. I would've taken eternity for the download. :D I am not entering my credit card number on SteamPowered.com anytime soon. Maybe HL3 will change that. :D
