Fire in the hole!

This upcoming holiday season is just going to be crazy with good games coming out. It looks like Halflife 2 is finally almost here, because you can actually buy it now for download from Valve’s novel approach at a content distribution system, Steam. By buy, I really mean preorder although you can download all the content in encrypted form so it will be ready to go as soon as the game is officially released. Steam seems like a pretty cool way to get games, though I’m still a little disturbed by not actually having any cds to hold on to. Its also a little annoying that the Steam client that you have to leave running is something of a memory hog. The upshot is that you can start playing the new version of Counterstrike that uses the new Halflife 2 engine right away. As you can guess, I totally did that. What I learned is that even with fancypants new awesome graphics, I still suck at Counterstrike. I’m out there getting totally 0WN3d by a bunch of 12 year olds no doubt.
