And with all this testing, it still suck!
Dude, calm down.
You know what I hate about that thing, even if I tell it "not to automatically update this game". I need to relaunch the application before it takes effect. And when I want to see if the list of video as been updated, it change my option as soon as I look trough the video menu. Wich means that it start downloading all of them since I didn't even have the time to tell it wich one I wanted.
And that sucks.
They'd better allow me full control over the application before HL2 comes out or I'll need to block it so my bandwith is not monitored by a game.
It's like automatic windows update. But atleast with those, I can choose not to apply patch and only do so when I want.
Think about it. If the games come out and when there's a new patch, everyone is stuck having to download it before they can play online again. yay! for limited bandwith for 100 000 user waiting for 5 hour unable to have control over the game they payed for!
I don't want my computer to anything unless I tell it to do so, and this is exactly the kind of crap I hate.
