You guys remember the last update which started out as the Sniper pack and was... umm... hijacked by the Spy mid way in between? What's to say that the same won't happen again here with the Soldier pack being revealed after a couple of days or something?

Cool, more hats I will never get, an arena map I will never get around to playing and no sign of proper dual-core support. I wonder how many frames this update will take away.

Attaboy. Don't let anything ever stop you from whining.

I think Borderlands is a Q1 2010 release, I could be wrong but I thought I heard that after E3.

Nope. Borderlands is going to ship on time, if you want to believe Randy Pitchford of Gearbox in an interview on RPS a couple of weeks ago.

The proper name for chapter 2 is The Siege of Spinner Cay. Surprisingly, Telltale got it wrong on their website as well.

GFW Live can die a horrible death. I would like it to happen, actually... please happen.

agreed. as far as i can tell, gfwl brings no value addition to the package, and only causes problems. did developers suddenly forget how to create server browsers or netcode or something? why do they need to go with gfwl, when it has widely known issues and flaws.

This apparently the first non-retarded version, in which you can access the client outside of games.

no. they've had a windows client for a long time now. you just didn't know.

So these routers do something that no other routers do, and they cause problems for l4d?

It sounds strange but it must have been a big enough issue for them to actively investigate it and determine this fix.

there are lots of people playing dow2 online. they just released a huge patch with loads of mp fixes and the response to the patch (which had a public beta some time back) is generally positive. try the demo out first though... the game is quite different from your standard rts formula so it's best to try it out first to see if you like it.

Can you actually join games via it?

Yep I can join games with it just fine. I usually play the game with friends only lobbies, but whenever I've used the browser, it has worked.

not having instant EASY access to it is a pain in the ass.

This I can agree with. Why they didn't expose the server browser in the first place is beyond me. However, equating it to the game not having a functional server browser at all is completely idiotic.

There are a couple of ways to access it -

If you look at the screenshot I posted below, the server browser shows up as a normal menu option. To get this, you need to add "-serverbrowser" parameter to the l4d shortcut in steam (without the quotes). To do this, right click on l4d in the steam client, choose Properties, then Set Launch Options and type in -serverbrowser. The next time you start the game, it will be there in the menu.

If you want to use the console command, launch the game, bring down the developer console (which can be enabled in the options) and type "openserverbrowser", again, without the quotes. You could also type something like "bind p openserverbrowser" and it would open it everytime you pressed p (or the key of your choice).

Go try it. It doesn't work.

Yes, it does. See for yourself - http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/9670/browserm.jpg

(Ignore the pings, I live in Asia and there aren't many servers around here.)

How hard can it be to make a real server browser for a Source engine game?

The game has had a server browser since release day.

i don't see how you guys place any faith in an open beta. look at age of conan... it had a beta, they had the player feedback and they still released pre-alpha software in the retail box. apparently, and arguably, it has only recently become worthy of a retail release, over a year after launch. a beta is useless if the developer doesn't actually care about the feedback from the testers, which is almost the norm now right?

August 4th is the release date. They are doing an absolutely terrible job of marketing it so far...
