You bite your tongue! That riot shield was fucking amazing, especially if you purchased one on an awpmap.

It made things a little unfair though.

Personally, I think it would be better if you could pick from a list of 6-8 characters. I already foresee some impending girlfriend/wife catfights over who gets to play the only female character.

And if they had stuck to their guns with their original "No additional copy protection allowed, Steam is more than adequate" policy, I'd buy a shit-ton more games on Steam. Just as I start to warm up to the idea of internet-connection-required gaming, the industry starts throwing activation limits at us. Bastards.

At least steam specifically states the DRM included with software, which I highly appreciate.

Oh god, I remember even before that, they were using an even earlier version of steam to distribute the CS 1.4 betas. Now that thing was ugly.

Is steam going to let us pre-load the game?

Its such a trivial issue but I agree that their should've been character selection between quite a few survivors or at least have the possibility of just just all playing the duplicate characters. Imagine if they had a character creating option in L4D

Can't wait for this game.

Steam is especially horrendous if you have to use a shitty internet connection.

Sometimes it takes it over an HOUR to update half-life before I can play NS. It makes me really miss my old Comcast connection.

The forced-updating system sucks. too. My steam client forces me to download updates, install them, and when it's done I can't play my favorite servers for days because they haven't updated.

And then sometimes I randomly have to delete my clientregistry.blob file, which provokes another hour-long update--if it even gets through the process without timing out.

It's a great idea, but I really wish they'd throw some technical support into it. Too bad steam's clients have an average age of 12.

It's irrelevant, valve should make a system that works well on low-bandwidth connections.

Nuff said.
