Blue ray support?! Let's try releasing games on plain old DVD first instead of half a dozen fucking cd's!I was gonna say the same thing, laughable this quote of support. Many publishers don't even support DVD format!
OldScho0l: You people really need to study WWII before you start talking about things you don't understand.
The reason we didn't see HL2DM was that DM has absolutly no longevity. Compare numbers: About 90,000 people playing Counterstrike and 550 people playing HLDM. Honestly, which game would YOU have put your energy into making?HLDM was king of the hill for a long long time before CS became big, and then had competition from other DM games (Quake 3, UT, etc.); there was also Team Fortress popularity. So, consider the entire six year life-cycle and not just what is popular today.
Thanks to the warezers for saving me $60. And f Valve for screwing people over.Because other people have configuration issues, that justifies you stealing a copy of the game?

Apparently, the Steam EULA contains some clauses (namely, that Valve cannot be held responsible for anything that goes wrong with Steam, including damage to files or viral infection, etc) which may be illegal under the UKs Trading Standards laws.aldo_14, every End User License Agreement has this clause in; check your Microsoft Windows EULA for one.
Five million magazines gave this game a good review and we end up with this in the press release:
"Maxim ... awarded "five out of five stars" and ..."
Why do people always have quotes about Maxim gave the game? Does anyone care about what they think?
Well, looks like I need to start booking time off work. All I can say is its about bloody time!:)Must complete all deadlines by 16 November, gotta take a few days off to play HL2.
Who has played their 'official' Half-Life for DreamCast copy lately? Rated - 9/30/2000 - ROFLI saw (what I now know to be empty) boxes of HL for DC on the shelves of HVM Oxford Street. It was only when I read your post that I released it was never "officially" released.
