The Orange Box Gifting Thread

DarklyreDarklyre Registered User regular
edited August 2008 in Games and Technology
THIS is what this thread is about.

Making this in the other threads would really clutter them up, so here we go. Just go ahead and list what Orange Box games you're missing, and which ones you have gifts of. Sorta like this:

Darklyre - Half-Life 2 (GIFT)

or

Darklyre - Half-Life 2 (WANT)

Hopefully this thread can make both sides meet in headcrab heaven. Once someone's gifted something to someone else, maek poast so your names get removed.

Oops, yeah, forgot. If possible toss up your steamids as well. If you folks decide to PM your info to each other, please say that, too.

To give out your gifts, open up Steam, and go to your My Games page. Any gifts you have should show up as a link saying GIFT next to the game's name. Click this, and then select your game and hit SEND. Your friends list should pop up, as well as a dialog box allowing you to enter the email address of your choice.

HALF-LIFE 2 OR EPISODE 1 ONLY!

    basically, everyone who bought orange box now has 2 copies of HL2 one of which they can give away... so if anyone actually doesn't own HL2 and wants it they can get one from many of the countless people who now have a spare.

    I expect a fair number of HL:EP1s too... but mostly just HL2

    I think what they're trying to do is trade stuff they already have for stuff they want.

    IE, they don't want two copies of HL2, but one copy + an X360 game? Sweet!

    I don't own HL2, sadly. :(

    I'm not getting the Orange Box, so I don't have anything to give, but if anyone has a free copy if it that they would be willing to part with... hook a brother up.

    One thing to note is that if you fail to give out your gift within 30 days of purchase you lose the right to give it out at all.


    Edit: Upon rereading that may apply to only guest passes not the gifts. My apologies.

    Whew. You scared me at first. This is what the Valve support page has to say about it:
    Will my Orange Box gifts expire if I don't give them out quickly enough?
    No, you can give your Orange Box gifts at any time, as long as your Steam account remains active.

    Edit: Maybe this link should be added to the OP.

    So wait - I've never played Half Life 2 (I've never played Half Life 1, but that's a whole other issue) - does this mean if I find someone who bought Orange Box and already owned Half Life 2 they can just give me a copy somehow? Do I need to buy anything on my part to do this?

    PC with windows (or linux + wine I guess) and internets is all you'll need

    Edit: and steam account I guess

    This seems as good a place to ask as any:

    If I gift this to someone in my friends list, do they get my e-mail address when they receive the gift? I've tried "gifting" to an e-mail address (i.e. non Steam member, non friend) and in the e-mail that's sent it gives away the e-mail I used to register Steam with (not even my "response e-mail", which I can change, the actual e-mail which I originally registered with).

    @ Herby: That's right, they can just give it to you. You just need to download the Steam client and with the gift URL you can get the game.

    If you want them just PM me your steam ID and I'll get them to you as soon as possible. I am entirely too lazy to look through this short thread and PM people who asked or check who has already gotten one so I'll leave the effort up to you. First come first serve of course.

    Always wanted to play this on the PC for all the mods, but never have been quite sure if it'll run on my piece of shit so I've always held off on spending the money. Someone want to take the risk with me? :P

    Allforce is my steam ID, in case it's not understood.

    Dude, instead of using up someone's free copy, download the demo. Seriously.

    Edit: And what are the requests for TF2/Ep2/Portal doing in the OP? Those can't be gifted.

    They can't? What about the off-chance that someone accidentally bought two?! :P
