For those of you wondering, Phenorix is reporting both 1 & 2 are available. I can't confirm or deny this, I'm at work now...

I wonder when they will make a Linux-only game. That will break the economy! :laugh:

Can't find Portal 2, but they did release Left 4 Dead 2 with it.

Downloading them now!

... When did Left 4 Dead 2 get so big? It's an 11.5GB download!

The windows version is 7.84GB, maybe there is debug code in the beta or possibly higher quality textures?

I'd presume there'll be debug code in there for bug reports and stuff, but I didn't realise that even the Windows version was so big. Maybe I'm misremembering.

I'm not looking forward to the time when Blu-rays become the standard game medium and downloads jump to 50 gig :p

Not sure how much changed, besides that they transferred it to SteamPipe.

But apparently it's unfiltered, so you'll be getting all available languages at once.

Which might explain the bigger-than-needed size for now.
