Steam Updates

There are new updates available via Steam for four games. A minor patch for Bullet Candy fixes a bug with player names on the scoreboard, a small update for Team Fortress 2 adds a quick list view to the server browser, a new version of Day of Defeat: Source clears up an issue that could prevent Linux servers from allowing clients to connect, and an update for Garry's Mod adds Quick List icons while also addressing a handful of bugs.

Yeah, they already said new maps are coming. I don't remember a date. They also said that the all four of the current map sets will be playable in versus mode as well.

Well, the "if" really isn't a question, if previous statements and Valve's history are any indication (They have mentioned DLC for L4D in several interviews and Q&A. The "when" is another story - this IS Valve we are talking about...

Still no way to select a specific server from the Lobby...WTF?

Otherwise, looks like lots of good changes.

TF2's server browser is atrocious, but I don't necessarily blame Valve. They tried to relegate custom servers to a separate tab and admins ended up cheating their custom servers back into the main tab with plug-ins. At this point it's almost impossible to find a truly pure server. Most 'pure' servers run with increased_maxplayers and stat tracking at minimum. I've even seen servers marked 'pure' that had crits disabled. It's a mess and is the main reason I rarely boot the game up anymore.

Anyone who seriously plays TF2 will use the favorites list due to the number of servers with false player counts and dumbass settings.
Man, the false player counts thing really pisses me off - you join what you think is a full server and you're there on your own like a plum. Completely pointless, because then I just quit. What's the point?

There's now a demo for Defense Grid the Awakening on Steam. It's a damn fun tower defense game.

I noticed the server quick list in TF2 last night. My first thought was "And this is for what exactly?" I turned it off immediately after.
