anotha noob :D hi, i'm wondering whether to get half life 2 collectors edition, the reg edition, or bronze edition..And im also wondering if installing this game is a hassle like people had said it was to be? If yes, im wondering how long it takes to download and be able to actually play the game....Is the installation of steam going to be a pain in the ass?? give this noob some advice please
Steam is a pain in the ass but leave it updating for 6 hours or so and it should be alright, as to getting the normal or collectors edition it's up to you. You get stuff like t-shirts and postcards and extra games but you have to pay more for the priviledge.
Lol one rule in steam :
The later a steam game you get the longer it will update :P
JUST get GOLD ... i really regret buying collecters ... sucks arrgggg maybe you can send me a copy of the soundtrack hahah
I got gold. I had the ATI voucher and upgraded. I got a hat, 3 posters, a sticker, a postcard, the Prima guide and the soundtrack. I also got all the Valve catalog, including HL:Source.
I bought the collectors edition that was in the store. You get a mini-guide, the game on one DVD(did not know and had to buy a DVD drive) and a t-shirt for $60. I also got HL:S and I think I get DOD:S.
whaaat mandatory 6 hours ??? is that for the first installation update?? Well collectors edition is only 40 bucks and gold edition is 84 bucks!!and i dont really care about the merchandises so i think i should get the coll ed. since its cheaper. i am only lookin forward for cs source . I swear i saw it for 34.99 once on amazon but they increased the price to 39.99. Does any1 know if they have deathmatch on the coll ed.? Is it fun?

no, you won't get DOD:Source...
collectors edition... .....clearly states HL2, CS:S, HL: Source, HL2 Deathmatch, no DOD:S, even on my steam account it says under "coming soon" Day of Defeat: Source...
