it would seem that Valve's after HL2 release Suprise.. was the release of HL2 deathmatch.. as I'm sure we all know.

But me.. along with I'm sure at least hundreds if not thousands of others now cannot play HL2M or HL2:SP or even CS:S or HL:S!

Welcome to the wonderful world of QA... i'd like to take this moment to say that this is the reason why developers require publishers... For QA! For the love of all things kinda-sorta-holy! Can't a developer release a game that doesn't need patches within a week of release, and if they do need patches, the patches dont break the freaking game?! *very peeved*

Edit: not to mention the steam forums are down.. quite the coincidence


Edit: my spelling sucks right now... if there's an error somewhere that I havn't caught.. well.. I'm leaving it

In case there are those of you who don't know what he's talking about, Valve officially released HL2: DM today for everyone (Bronze owners included).

Oh yeah... forgot to include that whole explination + linkage thing. I blame Forum-rage (kinda like road-rage, except a lot more blind hate and less vocal)

I still stand by my view of Valve being total and complete tards for letting that happen.

Valve is taking the role of developer and publisher, of course there will be hiccups, and we know there have been... Luckily though they're learning quickly

HL2eathmatch was released and kind of FUBAR'd all the other games playable through Steam. Valve released a small patch not long after the initial release and all was well.

SHows whats happens when projects like steam take over our freedom in gaming. Hopefully the wait for DM was worth it.

[content edited] school, wait today it helped! I turned on my pc this morning and saw the update news of the new hl2 mp but didnt get to play it.

Its like HL (Guns, maps, characters.etc)?
But multiplayer (like CS:S)?

So just to get this straight its counterstrike with hl2 guns?

Thanks for nothing valve, I already have that mod, fookers.

No, it's called multiplayer with the grav gun, meaning it completely owns.
