I read the PC gamer review (they gave it a 98%) and was sold. I was pretty sure I was going to buy it, but this just locked it in.So I took the dive this weekend and installed Steam, and bought the "Silver" package so I could try out Counter Strike: Source.Now, I never played the original CS, I just was interested in seein the Source engine at work. Have to say I was happily impressed.Anyone else doing the Steam thang for getting HL2? (mine's "preloaded" now, only awaiting the 16th.)
I'll be picking it up from the store when it comes out. I'm not all that big on the digital delivery systems.Brian/Perrin42http://www.tro42.comPer ardua ad astra.Through struggle to the stars"I thought it would be nice to lie down and close my eyesIt never occurred to me that I am already asleep"Trapt, Enigma
I need a new computer! I'm conflicted about Steam... yeah, it's cheaper and you get stuff like HL1: Source, but I like having a physical piece of media to say "I own that." Or rather, "I own a license to use that." -Shrike Resident Urbie expertPUB Recruitment/Administration
I thought I'd take the dive and try out the whole digital release thing once. At least it was a game I know I would buy, and I know I won't trade in.Let me tell you one thing, it takes a looooooong time to download CS: Source and even longer for Halflife2. If yer on dial up, or even a slower DSL connection, I'd look elsewhere.
