    Am I the only dumb-ass who bought Portal 15 minutes before it went free to everyone under the sun on wednesday?

    I emailed steam asking for a refund and they denied me.

    bastards. need to learn some patience I suppose.

    I feel your pain. I purchased my 13" MBP because I was tired of waiting for the new release. 2 weeks later...#@%&!!

    It's still worth every penny. It's a fantastic game.

    I got Portal in the Orange box. Considering how much I paid for that box (like $40), it was already free to me.

    Bugger!

    If you bought it hours before you could have jumped ahead of the massive server hammering that was going on. Torchlight just finished downloading a DAY after it was available and that's just 700mb! It flew down when I bought the PC version months back.

    yeah blows. more frustrating than the issue was actually trying to contact valve about this.

    Steam support
    "...Unfortunately, our billing system is automated and we have no option to offer a partial refund on a game or to apply a credit to your account. "

    wtf
