Free DoD: Source Weekend Coming

A new Steam Update (thanks Frans) promises some new announcements from Valve in the coming weeks, and also promotes next weekend as another chance to check out Day of Defeat: Source for free:

If you still haven't purchased Day of Defeat: Source, you'll get a chance to play the new maps in about a week, as we'll be having a second Day of Defeat: Source Free Weekend. The second free weekend will commence at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time on July 7th, and conclude at 1:00 p.m Pacific time on July 10th. We're looking forward to seeing you all there.

19. Re: DoD:S Jul 2, 2006, 22:29 Roofles
 
I can't really name what it is about DoD:S that makes it pretty much the only online FPS I've been playing for the past year. I think it's the balance between "realism" (whatever that means) and comical goofiness (I will never get tired of bazooka-ing someone by their feet and seeing them fly to the horizon and bounce down off rooftops with lovely ragdoll physics). I guess it reminds me of the kind of balance between those two achieved in Action Quake 2.

The servers that I frequent and made the game so much more enjoyable are the ones that limit the number of each class type. Sure, you don't get the class you always want but it balances out the game so much better and you don't have a team of all snipers or MGs camping.

What does that matter?
I am in a BF2 clan.
I am not in a DoD Source clan.

And?

I still prefer DoD Source over BF2.

I'm waiting for the pay to play weekend, because I feel I should earn some money for playing this game. It's certainly not worth my free time, but for a price I might play it.

I have thousands of hours in the game (literally).
Once I get my internet figured out (been using wireless since we moved in and I hate it - too old of a house to use wireless) I will go back to playing it everyday.

I actually bought this game a while ago, it was fun for about a week but then I just never touched it anymore.

Overall it wasn't very good and certainly not worth the money, I regret my purchase. At least I learned my lesson in time for Valve's episodic rip-off.

DOD has a lot of cool gameplay mechanics coupled with a lot of crappy mechanics. Cool stuff: no dolpin diving, machine guns that actually do something, picking up grenades. Crappy stuff: autos can be shot at full auto will little skill required.

But biggest DOD Source problem for me... crummy frame rates

It says weekend .. which is 3 days.

If you are refering to "you'll get a chance to play the new maps in about a week" , it means that you will be able to try the new map , in a about a weeks time from now. Not for a week.
You simply misunderstood.

BTW don't knock the metric system .. it's far superior to "that other" measurement system.

This new Demolition mode sucks horribly.. people camp more than in the CTF game mode, which doesn't make a lot of sense. Plus you see assaulting MGers run up and camp an enemy demolition point, or spawn camp.

Plus, whomeer thought the bridge map should only have the over-and-under passageways must not have taken map making 101, have at LEAST three ways across the map. EVERY other map has 2 alleways and the main route .. wtf.

Either TFC from Valve or the Fortress Forever mod... at long as it's still fun I'll be happy. CS:Source just doesn't interest me much anymore.
