Steam Update Today

Admitting the release over the weekend was "pretty rocky," The Steam News Page (thanks David Cronk) says that today Valve "will release new installers which include the cache files for all of the games available via Steam (Day of Defeat, Team Fortress Classic, the dedicated server, etc). If you haven't already done so, please use the installer that includes Counter-Strike and Half-Life." The update goes on to point out: "We know that the conversion process has been anything but smooth for many of our users. We're going to get this fixed. We've done our best to support the Half-Life community over the past 5 years, and we're still committed to doing whatever it takes to make the community happy."

61. Steam Update Today Sep 21, 2003, 17:47 chili pepper
 
Valve has become a very wealthy and successful company by distributing HL 1 and CS the CONVENTIONAL way. No doubt HL2 would be incredibly profitable if it were distributed strictly by traditional means. And without the side effect of pissing most of your customer base to no end. It could have been a win-win situation for customer and company as it always has been.

But that ain't good enough for Valve anymore. Now they want to try to squeeze their customers through monthly fees. Bunch of greedy fucks. Valve wants to gamble away a sure thing and piss everyone one off. I hope they lose their collective shirts.
