Valve is awesome but who the hell doesn't have this title already? Shame on you if you don't.
I don't own any L4D games. I did play their free weekends.

For some reason "The Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now." Did I just break Steam?

Do we need to install the whole game or just start downloading to make it a free purchase?

This whole "networks upload for free" thing I've seen mentioned twice now in this thread...

What networks are you guys talking about? The vast majority require you to log in with your cable subscription account.

You need to log in if you want to watch same day. If you're willing to wait 3-5 days, you can watch pretty much every show online on the networks' own websites, no login required.

That was what that whole strike from the writers' guild was about.
IIRC, FOX does it eight/8 days after of TV airing for its new episodes for non Plus users.

Did Tony Stark kill that leaf-cutter ant? Also, they do not exist in the deserts!

All the more reason to pay cash, use a phony online persona, and use Adblock and Ghostery where ever you go.

the big question that no one's asking i think should be, what's going on with Doom 4? so what about Quake 5? are they still gonna do it or what? i hope they do a reboot of Quake 1 on Quake's 20th anniversary...
Who knows. I think one of the DOOM articles mentioned John Carmack talking about DOOM 4 briefly that had issues and he had no time to be with id Software to leave.

On the very same day, the Hubble Space Telescope became viable after a restoration conducted by spacewalking astronauts on STS-61. I don't remember using Worldcraft, but I used DEUS or something. I remember config.sys, autoexec.bat, multi-configs, emm386.exe, qemm386.exe, Stacker, DOS4GW.exe (DOOM used it IIRC), conventional memory (ugh), etc.

Oh God, qemm386.exe brings back memories. I am so glad I don't have to deal with that any more. All that voodoo magic just to get close to that 640k. I think the best I could do at the time was like 614k? Moving things into upper memory. /shudder
Hahah yeah. EMS, XMS, conventional memory, etc. DOS 4 was horrible for that. DOS v5+ and v3.3 were good. :O

Though it's not something most people want to spend the money for, it's worth noting that larger (17" or greater) monitors will provide a deathmatch advantage. When using a larger monitor everything on the screen appears larger (duh), which improves your aim, situational awareness, etc.

I remember playing Q1 @15" on the lan with a bunch of mates and one of them was from a filthy rich family so he had a PC powerful enough to run glQuake and a 19" monitor. Man did that look sweet.

DOOM(2) and Duke3D though were pretty much everything at the time though. Nothing compared to the speed and adrenaline of those games when playing deathmatch with your mates in the same room.
The good old days. I remember playing DOOM on my new 486 DX2/66 with an 15" OptiQuest CRT monitor, SB16 ISA, etc.
