Day of Defeat: Source Free Weekend Underway

As promised (story), the Day of Defeat: Source Free Weekend is now underway. All that's needed to sample the World War II shooter is a Steam account. Word is: "Day of Defeat: Source is the latest version of the WWII online action game from ValveŽ. This weekend, everyone is invited to try DoD: Source for free. Join the ranks as Axis or Allies troops located in Western Europe during the height of the war in 1944."

Wow. They are charging 20 bucks for this? Ok don't get me wrong, it looks nice and I wish they made a single player ww2 game outta the source engine, though this is no way worth 20 bucks. Heck, the original free mod had like what, 12-14 maps? Now this had only 4, I hear they added one or so, and they are charging for basically a graphic overhull. I would definitely not pay 20 for this cause it plays like a very basic multi FPS game.

20.00 to have unlimited amount of gameplay that is never the same?
huh - a skewed idea of a deal I think.

Remeber, go download the non-canned maps.
The original only had 8-10 maps - MAYBE.
The great maps in the original were custom maps.
The cusom maps in this version are better than the original (5-6?) ones.

Even if you put in 20 hours - $1 an hour?

Oh well.
Just seeing it in the HL2 engine and all the really nice layouts on the maps (kicks CS' ASS!) is worth it.
Make sure to check out the maps:
Battlecreek (HALO Map)
Kalt (Custom, not the canned one)

Always listening to:
