you can say what you want about them being stupid because their software has bugs - but so does everything..

hl had bugs, quake had bugs, unreal had bugs.. are all the companies responsible stupid? And do you think its harder to program an OS or a game?

at least they patched it - and if theres another vunerability i'm sure that will get patched within a couple of days too.

personally i have great faith in MS. winxp is as stable as a rock for me.

i played this last night for about an hour, its really hard to actulayy kill people with guns now.. which makes them all useless.. especially since you only get 1 frag for killing with a gun when its just as easy to use kung fu and get 3 frags a kill..

still very fun.. and some of the maps are very good..

that first q+a would have been a lot better if the editor didnt think we cared what he said so much and just set it out like a Q+A is supposed to be set out.

is this the patch that makes it not feel like a bad attempt to move counter-strike to a better engine?

look in the same folder as the windows media player - you'll find the old original small quick player!

people keep moaning that the movies 'really needs antialiasing'.

I really don't agree with that. I think its better to see what it will look like than releasing a shit load of aa'd movies - like that other game thats coming out around the same time as hl2.. forgot the game.. something to do with aliens..

if they get the gameply right this could be one of the great games - the sp game sounds like wild fun.

the only dodgy thing i saw in that movie was the ragdoll pysics - seem a bit clunky but i dunno. The indoor lighting effects were very nice.

calm down dear


you can buy off steam, or you can buy it in a box. The main reason for buying through steam would be that a) you get it a little earlier and b) it's cheaper. Obviously it's sucess will rest on if they can provide the connection speed, if it works as faultless as it does from the box (no entering a cd key and no 'installing', yay!)and the price difference between that and the boxed version.

And I think we all want it to fail, god forbid someone try something to reduce the costs of games and the amount of piracy - I've ordered games before (vice city, mafia) - and been that excited that I've downloaded the warez version and played them until my retail copy came along. So i'd downloaded it anyway even tho i'd bought it. Breaking the law yeah but now we should be able to do it legally!

All they have to do is release it on steam a week early to beat the warezers - then release it in box form and have it ripped and cracked - but the people who would have payed anyway have already bought it through steam because they couldnt wait!

it's a good idea for everyone I think.

>Didn't they already release that in a 500 MB download? I'm sure what I watched wasn't a handicam version?

yes it was, if you can hear people saying "woo" and "yee haw" and "will this run on my 386" then its the cam version.

>I don't think you download any game. I don't care what broadband pipe you got. You won't be dowloading any modern games in "minutes". I think your game stays online and you have some unique identifier for saved games and multiplayer! It sounds like even in single player you have to be online... how else could you access your game "from any PC"?

you download what you need to get started playing the game, if its a single player game (ie hl2) it will be downloading level 2 whilst you're playing level 1, then level 3 etc. If its a multiplayer (ie counter-strike) it downloads what it needs to get in a game, then downloads seperate maps and sounds when it comes to them (it's a lot faster than it sounds because evrything is compressed)

It downloads a footprint, the bare minimum of what you need - then goes from there.

Ok, maybe not 2 mins of downloading, but you set it off, have a shower, check your email and you're ready to get stuck in.

>Is there going to be a monthly fee for this Steam or just the fee of the games you purchase?

The monthly fee is an option, although this won't be the case with hl2 it might be an option in the future when you rent movies or games or whatever.


Of course instead of 'streaming' the game you can right click on it and go to always keep updated and it will download the whole thing all in one go.

I heard its gonna be in bink format (as the source engine allows you to export your demos as bink exes apparently)

whats to stop them doing that with hl1?

they won't be able to play online (because the key/steam account will be in use)

I think they're gonna test it first with cs:cz, then that should give them an idea of the bandwidth needed for hl2. (although i doubt anyones gonna wanna pay for cscz).

I also doubt that they will 'only' have the 1150.00Mbps that they have right now.

yesterday they only had 500Mbps i think, so they've doubled it for the release of steam to the public - and afaik that's gone smoothly (this time).

I think we're all looking forward to the official hl2 trailers.

according to some nob they're 1024*768 and 800mb all together (for the full 25 mins)

That spells quality in any language.

They're hoping to be able to rent out movies over steam eventually so this could be a pretty big test for them.
