    if they call it half life 2 it should be at least twice as good.

    It's more than twice as good. Put it this way, I hated HL1...I love HL2.

    I loved HL1, how could you have hated it? Best 1ps plot ever was HL1.

    I just bought Half Life 2. Bad news is I can't run it, because right now I'm sitting behind a firewall which won't allow Steam to open the appropriate ports to set up an account. This is very annoying, to say the least. I don't suppose anybody knows a way around this...?

    I will be moving house in a few weeks time, so it might just have to wait until then.

    How about temporarily removing the firewall? You know, for a few minutes? Or are you worried all those hackers that are on stand-by 24/7 waiting to get at your goods may strike? lol

    It's not a personal firewall, Thor. I don't control it.

    Thor, again, it is not his personal firewall, he's on some shared filtered access or something. He'll have to outsmart it, by setting up his own proxy. Depending on the owner of the firewall, not entirely risk-free, though. It's considered 'hacking' by some people... some of the smarter spyware and trojans do the same to your firewall btw.

    Once inside they turn off all your security, or just the required gates. James's luck is: he's already 'inside', so to speak. He wants 'out'. So he has to make the firewall think it's sending info to 'allowed addresses' (and ports) both inside and out, and noone in the systems dept the wiser....

    This patent is based on a firewall idea, originally, but could theoretically be extended to Steam, meaning: to avoid litigation they'd have to cough up dough they don't have or want to spend...

    United States Patent 5,987,611; "System and methodology for managing internet access on a per application basis for client computers connected to the internet ".

    (tech note: if it uses 'TDI monitoring' in any way, it's up shit creek - narf. )

    Watched that video, shouldn't be hard to accomplish when you know where to go and what to do. Still, why should I play it through that fast?

    It's possible to tunnel ports that are blocked through other open ports, however you would have to know which ones are open and allowed.

    As for Halflife2.....

    Well for all of you that were complaining Halflife2 now has a Demo out, I believe you can now download the Demo through Steam... so no more whinning.

    I was not very satisfied with the ending of this game too, on the other hand I am because it's the best game-ending in a while. I downloaded hl1 just to get to know this g-man (the man at the end with the suitcase) and understand the plot a little more. I am anxious for half life 3 but unfortunatly that will take a while

    I'd give halo 2 a 7,5 or something and hl2 definatly a 9 to 10.
