I'm at 20% so far and have almost have 4.25 GB on my Hard Drive. So we're looking at around 20 GB in all if not a little more.

Direct2Drive said it was 17.8GB, but that could have been a compressed zip file...

Hmm. I wasn't sure, I just took the key from D2D and activated it on Steam. Once downloaded a game from D2D, then when I activated it on Steam, it wouldn't let me install from what I downloaded, so I had to download again.

"It's a big game"

(fwiw, to those who get the quote: I have no problem with the game being around 15 hours)

I've paid this much for games that have less them 15 hours. It's the quality of the game play that counts and this game has got quality all over it.

this is AWESOME! thanks so much for the tip mcfowl! Checking out on a 3TB one for 179,99. Sweet!

@HydrantHunter > good to know it's this big because of it's rather big gameplay. I was thinking it was more because of heavy graphics and such. good news!

@ 14 % in just under an hour, that means it should take my connection around 6-7 hrs to download.

I'm wondering if this due the compression I noticed earlier that when I was @ 39% i had a lot of HDD activity, which could mean it un-compressing files before it puts them on my HDD. That would also explain the % drops.

Going at a steady 5.1MB/s! If it keeps this up I'll have it within the hour.

I got an error saying the server is full. Any workaround for this? Tried changing server to other countries but doesn't work.

Now I must decide, preload with steam, or keep my amazon pre-order and risk the same problem I had with Deus Ex HR release day shipping? (amazon screwed up and sent it 2 days late) I really need to get over this wanting to have a physical copy quirk I have.

Sounds lucky, actually. I preordered New Vegas from Best Buy, it showed up a week late. The only reason I preordered from Best Buy was to get the merc preorder pack with it. They gave me the caravan pack.

Newegg, on the other hand, shipped me Metro 2033 a day early.

Maybe someday I'll get to pre-load but right now all I get to stare at is the "Severs are too busy" message.

I dont like preordering from bestbuy because if you dont pay the full amount upfront they keep placing holds on your debit/credit card for the full amount until the game ships.

anyway, I decided to go ahead and get Rage on steam. the physical copy doesn't come with any fancy extra stuff and I'll get to start playing at midnight oct 4th.

That's MY top speed! 35 Mbit FioS ftw!

Anyways... I'm getting the "steam servers are too busy" error. Really? At 3:30am?

My download screwed up. It went back to 0%, and I can't continue due to the servers being busy.
