Steam Update

A new Steam Update (thanks Frans) discusses the Lost Coast release and future plans:

We hope everyone is enjoying Lost Coast. We've received a number of e-mails with positive feedback about the commentary system included in Lost Coast, so it's a safe bet that we'll look for ways to include commentary in future products.

We're now going to be looking toward releasing some new Counter-Strike: Source content we've been working on. The next two maps coming will be updated versions of de_nuke and cs_militia, along with a number of new player models for both sides. We'll give everyone a sneak peek at Nuke and some of the new models next week.

Two weeks ago we mentioned our affinity for all things zombie, along with the note that someone here at Valve had made a short movie on the subject. Zombie Movie has won Best Comedy Horror Short down at Screamfest L.A. and we're looking forward to delivering the movie over Steam soon. We think everyone will get a kick out of it.

Still, one has to wonder why we were shown this at all. Frankly, the new lighting isn't all that impressive.

Well, if you're looking at the whole 3 minutes of game play and wondering why they didn't release a whole addon, you're rather missing the point. And I'll disagree with you here, the demo was impressive. The HDR looks like it can built on quite a bit and especially with a better grapics engine overall, it will really have much larger effect.

Yes, but at least you can run the Lost Coast with a 7800GTX - with FEAR you'd need at least four of them

Don't get me started on F.E.A.R. I beat the game more out of sheer curiousity, but ran it at 800x600 and 4x AA...For the way the game looks, I can't see much rason for the game that badly.
