Counter-Strike: Source Beta Plans

Valve announces plans to begin to beta test the Source version of Counter-Strike. Here's the deal:

COUNTER-STRIKE: SOURCE BETA 1 COMING SOON

Starting later this summer, Valve will be conducting a limited-time beta of Counter-Strike: Source via Steam. The beta will first be open to subscribers of the Valve Cybercafé Program, and then extended to owners of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. The next installment of the world’s number 1 online action game, Counter-Strike: Source blends CS’s intense teamplay with the advanced technology of Valve’s Source engine. For more information, please visit www.steampowered.com.

Well I leave Steam going and it doesn't affect my other stuff. At least, not noticably. I wouldn't place it in the same league as Real Player. I mean, that's low.

After they worked out the bugs of NS3.0 in the first release, it seems like the game is more stable on Steam than it was on WON. It works for me. *shrug*

The 10 minute / hours authentication in Steam has been gone for ages, btw.

I will be looking forward to the "crackers" removing Steam(ing pile of shit) from it and I will gladly play the single player HL2 and Valve can kiss my arse.

Ok, I bought CS:CZ and this is how it works. You can install it from the discs. It is completely standalone. If you want to play online, you have to load it into steam. When you do this, it can copy over the data from that install, either leaving it or deleting it by choice, and then you just play it through Steam. I'd be willing to bet money that it will work the same way with HL2. Meaning, if you don't want to play online it probably will not require steam in any way.
