Well i don't plan on getting episode 1 any time soon but it is really messing with my Half Life 2. Whenever i log into steam, it always shows Halfe Life 2 as pre-loade (this only started when Episode 1 pre-loading started) so i go to put my cd key in and it says it's already in just re-log in. So i do and it's the same. Then i try it again and Half Life 2 gets deleted. I can't play any mod or any other games and this is really pissing me off. Screw off with your crappy pre-loading valve, i can't play my games anymore. (and if this is just some way to get my to buy, it just turns me off even more)
Why do you post it here though? Don't you think It'll be easier if you post it on the Steam Forums?
