and where was the first warning?? :p but thats fine, if you guys dont like to talk about dling stuff then ill stop.
did you not miss the last page or the part in the forum rules that say you can't talk about warez?

so i guess we all should pay to download TG eps.
there's a significant difference here, you have the option of paying for half life and steam games, pretty much wherever you are, however in markets where top gear isn't available, it's your only option and 9 times out of 10 you aren't breaking any laws, because it isn't available in the first place.

there are better places to ask warez questions bud. try the forum for whatever group released your download, clearly we all paid for it and aren't interested in talking about warez shit here, so go elsewhere.

I found the ending really hilarious
especially the ASCII art shit. I used to love doing that shit, the tie in with black mesa was good too, can't wait for portal2 and ep3

no, there isnt a difference, downloading is downloading, doesnt matter if its porn or TG ep or games, you are not paying for them, so its illegal. stop trying to make yourself feel better by coming up with this pathetic excuse. At least im honest enough to admit that i cheap.

ill stop now, before more ppl get pissed off.

that's where you are very very wrong. if something isn't copyrighted in the country you're downloading it, there is nothing illegal about it.

for instance, a lot of anime fansub groups put out releases until a company puts the anime out in the US for purchase, until a US company is releasing it stateside, there isn't a legal conflict.

copyright, downloading, internet piracy etc. are anything but clear and well defined.

also, AFAIK, if you live in the UK or any country where the show airs, and you missed it, you can download it, as you've already paid for it.

and besides all that, there isn't supposed to be any talk of illegal copies of top gear on the forum anyway, so your argument, even if you were right, is baseless.

but either way, GTFO with the warez talk, only talk about the awesome game that is portal.

Besides the forum rules which you agreed to when you registered, right here. Learn to read:

Which means you can go elsewhere for help. :)

Next time, you'll enjoy a little vacation from the forums.

but thats fine, if you guys dont like to talk about dling stuff then ill stop.

Yeah, just like Portal, you can go to the store and buy it.

Don't be a smartass.

You can't buy it Orange box-less, can you? I would if i could, but the money to dish out on the whole package is just a bit too much i'm prepared/can afford to part with right now.

I love this game. I made a walkthrough for levels 1 - 18. Level 19 I did finish of course (I've beaten the game more than 3 times), but I decided to let people play it out themselves. The walkthrough is just if you're bored or stuck.

Level 1-10: http://youtube.com/watch?v=vAN5fnlC3NI
Level 11-14: http://youtube.com/watch?v=44-CDlPKxLk
Level 15: http://youtube.com/watch?v=K_vjOqmwQak
Level 16: http://youtube.com/watch?v=C9aacn5-lQE
Level 17: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ucGHYnhaFCE
Level 18: http://youtube.com/watch?v=wwYBRlgo6Lk

If you've beaten the game already and don't want to see those lame videos, I made something just for you. It's a compilation of the above videos except played at 4x speed. I call it "Portal on crack". Check it out: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Mcb3QhUweBk

Note: I know necromancing isn't allowed but this thread isn't that old, and also I was originally planning on making a separate thread for these videos, but then searched for portal so I could put it in the appropriate place.

Enjoy :p

The cake is a lie.

There is cake. The candle gets snuffed out by GLaDOS. And the companion cube gets to watch.

I just bought The Orange Box, after I sold COD:4 (grossly overrated.)

Portal is one of the most original and innovative games I've played in a long while. About an hour into the game and I had four other people in the room with me helping to figure out the puzzles, it's just addictive.

Now I just gotta beat Half Life 2 again to unlock the fun level.

very handy bump. i got the Orange box for PC today along with a wireless receiver for my 360 controller (i don't like keyboard and mouse)

anyway the big question is...

should i be shot for playing a PC FPS without using the keyboard and mouse controls?
