As it's a special occasion, and also the fact that Valve have made their weekly news update a bit more colourful this week, I thought we'd show it on our front page a little differently this week:[br]
<img border=1 src=http://www.halflife2.net/news/1126306562_wsn090905.jpg[/img]​
[br]As usual you can catch the news update here or by restarting your Steam client now.[br]Also, congratulations to the Dystopia team for releasing their demo (as reported below). You'll probably find that most downloads are running pretty slow so concerned fan of the game, Aaron, has sent us an e-mail with a torrent link in it. You can download this here.

"Preloading," eh...

Sweet! I guess I'll have to go and buy the combi pack with CS: Source, but this game is just so cool, I decided I don't really mind paying a bit extra.
Is there any info on when the game will be in stores? I can't wait!

managed to find a couple of Dystopia uk servers and WOW, just wow, great teamplay, I havent managed to play like this since TFC, you cant win if you play on your own as simple as that, the hacking part is soo much fun and so tripy. great great mode, and for me that means bye bye CS.

DOD:S is nice and all.

But seriously where is my SP? Basically where in the hell is Lost Coast?

Apparently HDR was just a little bit too technically complicated for Vavle to complete this summer.

Whatever. I still love ya Gabe.

Personaly I could care less about TLC, it's just a tech demo that the common gamer can't handle with maybe 45 mins of gameplay.

DoD:S will be a better release as more people can actual play it and worth hours and hours of gameplay. I'm just happy I don't have to wait on DoD:S because of proplems with TLC.
