    I played Portal all day today and beat it with only a trackpad. Quite enjoyable actually. It's free until the 24th by the way so get it quick!

    Just Portal so far. Steam still seems awfully buggy (every time I exit Portal or Steam, the program crashes instead of properly shutting down), so I'm going to wait before I drop money on other games.

    just Portal So Far, But I'll be getting all HL's and TF2, when they eventually release.

    Been good so far, I have the same crashing when quitting issue, or rather it won't quit, so I have to Force Quit it. But I don't mind. Only thing I do mind is the Nuclear Thermal Generator my MBP becomes, although that was expected.

    I cannot get Portal to download or install properly. Everytime I open Steam it says updating and downloads a 33 and 2X MB files. Then I tell it to install Portal and it errors either saying server is busy or it just plain crashes. Am I doing something wrong here?

    Been trying out portal, cool game, never played it and now it's free, cheah~ :cool:
    Been playing it in bed with a trackpad but decided to step up my game and hook up my mouse, it's easier, but trackpad is doable in first levels, the advanced ones need some faster cursor placement. :p
    Thing that's 'bugging' - all truly cool people use lame puns to mask their coolness - me is having no sound in Portal. :(

    other than portal, which i wouldn't really consider a game trackpad friendly, peggle is a great game to kill time; world of goo and osmos are two more laid back games as part of the indie game pack which i've enjoyed too. quantz was a bargin at £2.40 (70%) off but dont see it being as addictive as peggle!

    Gotta love World of Goo which is also part of the Indie Pack. Very trackpadable.

    torchlight is really cool and i have gotten far with the trackpad in bed... its fun and not too intense to stress you out. i had finished portal on xbox so i didnt bother getting it. i am thinking o getin world of goo and/or flight of the icarus.
    i play with the mouse when i get the chance but sometimes its nice to pass the time in airports and such.

    and steam also crashes on me :S

    cant wait for TF2
