Thai Half-Life 2

I thought I’d just post this snippet for all you Thailand PC gamers. You can buy 3 different Half-Life 2s here, and these are what they are and how much they cost:

1. (599B, small box) – The localised Thai version.
2. (999B, big box) – Asia Pacific version, in English
3. (2400B, massive over-the-top box) – Asia Pacific version, deluxe box set, in English.

So be sure to get the right one for your language skills! (not that you can play because of that Steam verification rubbish combined with the world’s worst server updates, anyway, but hey… I know, I’ve been attempting to play for three hours now…).

    How big is PC gaming out there? Do people play mostly Western PC games, or are people making/playing Thai games?

    PC gaming is pretty big here, especially multuiplayer RPG and stuff like that. Also remember that thai-released games are more than a third the price of the same in Europe / America – for instance, I paid about 20 USD for HL2.

    That is 20 USD for the original copy?

    I suppose the Steam protection gets around some piracy issues.

    The reason I ask is because I may be working with a game developer out there. I am worried about the effects of piracy on sales of course!
    I would be quite keen to get your feedback actually – esp. if you are out there and an avid PC game player.

    Could you email me on

    You install it same as any other PC game. Steam is the online verification – when it’s installed you have to be connected so it can download a load of files that allow you to play HL2. You need to be connected everytime you play (more or less), regardless of whether you want online gaming.

    It pretty much sucks. If HL2 hadn’t been so good, Steam would have put me off.
