I won't post them here, because I haven't went looking for them myself so I actually don't know what they would be. Apparently within the Counter-Strike: Source beta that just started there are files that reveal some or all of HL2's storyline (voice files from the game).

Valve is great at testing people's patience between the now-required Steam service, being deceptive about release dates and progress on the game, carelessly allowing their source code to be stolen delaying the game further...and now this. It's not going to take much more to drive people off completely. I was anticipating this game quite a bit since I'm a big fan of the first one (and mods for it), but even I'm starting to grow tired of it.

Naturally, fan-made rumors have started that this latest development is going to be an excuse Valve uses to delay it even longer. I have my doubts about that, but at the same time it wouldn't surprise me.

Eh, I think the only thing that will drive people away is a bad game.

How bout that CS: Source, though? I'm hoping the gameplay is sufficiently tweaked, but all I've seen/read form Valve/elsewhere says it's the exact same damn game in the new engine. I'm going to be a little disappointed if people are still getting headshots while hopping around. Always been one of my CS pet peeves.

Not a CS fan really...when I play HL mods, 90% of the time it's Day of Defeat or Natural Selection. Still, like you hinted at, I do want to try it out just to see if it's just regular CS with prettier graphics and floppy character models, or if it's actually a better game. I have a feeling it's the former, but we'll see.

Now NS on Source...Agh. Please. Now. Thanks.

The Source Engine hopefully will solve the issue with our bunny-hopping/jumping friends getting constant headshots (either that or their hacking).



I'd like to share a...revelation I had, during my time here. It came to me when I tried to...classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but...you humans do not. You move to an area...and you multiply...until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to... spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is?

A virus. Humans beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet...and we...are the cure.
