HL2 Aftermath Screenshot, Counter-Strike: Source Plans

A new Steam Update (thanks Shacknews) has a screenshot with a sneak peak of the upcoming Aftermath episode for Half-Life 2, along with word on plans for the next Counter-Strike Source update:

The next big Counter-Strike release is set to include two maps. The first map will be de_port, previously mentioned here. This map is set in a resupply port for outgoing ships. The gameplay is designed for a balanced layout employing a mix of long sightlines with cover and close quarters fighting environments. The second map will be a completely redone de_inferno, a historical favorite at CS tournaments and competions. We'll be releasing some screenshots or other media from both of these maps in the next week or two.

Generally, I think you had more than enough a little too often... but sometimes things changed the pace....

First time I played HL2.... I entered Ravenholme with 2 bullets for the .357.... 1 clip for the machine gun and 100 plus a few rounds for the handgun... Not exactly comforting.... but you had plenty of explosive canisters laying about to use the gravity gun with.... still, it had me on edge a few times. Last time I played it, I entered Ravenholme armed to the teeth and couldn't wait to giveth out with the carnage...

As for D3... One time when the lift breaks and you drop into the room with 4 imps. That left my health at 1... think there was 2 health packs, but just as you walk up the stairs to go through the door, you had the Revenent hit you with at least 2 rockets... before you knew he was there and could move. That area was rather edgy, but doable without a reload. That area in Hell where you sneak to the ledge and find the BFG... I found that bloody hard. Soon as you get it, you have two Hellnights to play with and I was already low on health. I must have reloaded that 10 times and hoped for the fleas of a thousand camels to infest the armpits of all those who worked at id for that.

Still, after that.... you're a walking tank within a couple of minutes and it becomes laughable. Still, I enjoyed both of them and if I find myself having to reload over and over, I'm no longer having fun. It's a tough call. Maybe not so much shotgun and machine gun ammo in D3, so you had to use the more prized weapons you were saving for real trouble. With HL2.... that's a harder call. You're often fighting Combine and nearly every weapon you have is Combine, so not being able to grab them and replenish would have been odd.
