Half-Life 2

At 587Mb, it is one huge freaking download, but this hi-res gameplay video of Half-Life 2 is absolutely amazing. As expected, the graphics are some of the best I've ever seen, but what impressed me even more is how extremely dynamic and interactive the environment is. I can hardly wait for this game to get released.

Anywhere else could I download it ? Can't stand the way Fileplanet deals with Downloads... Hate it to subscrive for the thing!

no need to subscribe. Just click "download", then choose one of the public servers at the bottom, then click "click here to continue to the public queue".

You'll have to wait a little while in line before your download starts, but there's no hassle with having to subscribe or needing any download plugins or anything.

Alas, that's not the case for us unregistered folk. It appears you must create an account (even a free basic one) even to get to the 'wait in line' servers. I refuse to support those greedy bums in any way, even it if means creating a throwaway free account. I'm sure it's out on BitTorrent or some P2P system anyhow.

ok - I guess I must've created a free account a long time ago and still have an active cookie on my system...

Personally, as long as they don't install any spyware download managers on my system, I don't mind creating a free account on a few content-rich sites... I think providing huge downloads like this is a worthwile service (I'd hate to have their bandwidth bill) so if all I need to do to use that service is create an account, I'm fine with that...
