Yeah this purchase would be all about the user base of yahoo mail. Yahoo mail has the most users as a webmail application, with Hotmail coming a close second. If Microsoft gets Yahoo Mail, then they will pretty much own the entire webmail user base.

92. Suit Oct 27, 2007, 14:04 Tyrsis
 
A lot of people say the suit is a gimmick, but it really isn't, and takes some time to actually figure out how to use effectively. In the multiplayer open beta, it was pretty important to know when and how to quickly change between modes. Though it had it's problems. Stealth mode wasn't really stealth, as it would still cast a feint shadow on the ground, or if you looked at someone invisible properly you could see a feint shimmer, which is a neat effect, but sometimes made it a bit useless. It's definitely useful for long range sniping though, fire off a round and cloak before someone spots you.

The power armour is killer though, as one punch kills everyone. So if you find yourself low on ammo, or with a bad weapon, you just sprint up to someone and punch them in the face. Also the super jump allows you to quickly get into good positions for kill people from above.

All in all I found the multiplayer to be pretty fun, and I don't really play a lot of multiplayer anymore.

HL2 DM is one of the funniest mods I've ever played. I'm not entirely sure why, but watching as 3 players circle strafe each other getting squished by a car that someone rolled over on them makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.

On one server the admin had the push physics up so that you can push objects by firing at them (almost like firing them with the physgun). Well you could also push cars pretty far too, and eventually get them airborn. People would fire at them and make them airborn really high in the air, then run near where it would land, and as someone approached, watched as the car came down and squished their opponent like a bug.

There were many moments while playing this mod where I had to actually get out of my chair to stop myself from laughing.

Good times.
