Halo 2 aint got nothing on this! Half-Life 2 players rejoice, we now have Deathmatch! (Other than CS:S)

It's on Steam if you missed that memo. Oh also, Half-Life 2 SDK, so now we can make wicked stuff, and new maps and such.

Since this game has now consumed my life, I figure it's safe to let it consume my soul as well. And you should let it do the same.

Go get HL2DM and SDK, and let's get playin!

In case you were wondering, the Halo 2 thing was a joke, considering recent events.

Eyes... Burning... RSI... in BOTH wrists... the HL2 MP is HECTIC!

...It's simply awesome, Half Life 2 has rewritten the equation from "Shotgun>Table" to "Table+GravGun>Shotgun". Absolutely mad in a 32 player server, I can't wait for the mods.

Heh, enjoyed a good deathmatch session with Tim, pooky and Hybrid tonight and it was incredibly good fun. The gravity gun really does make it unlike anything I've played before. Superbly funny at times, chasing after each other with radiators and chairs.

Moment of the day for me was when I was camping on the roof, and this explosive barrel flies up from ground level, elegantly reaching it's highest point before coming back down and blowing me up, A truely great Blindshot by Tarn.

Hybrid - that was a pretty astonishing shot. smile Didn't think for a second it woudl actually get you, considering I was the other side of the map, and you were on the roof of a very large building, completely out of sight. Was most amusing to see the barrel arc up into the air, disappear from sight over the rooftops, then a slight pause.....BOOM. And then just your maniacal laughter. smile

I don't know about lag, as I was hosting. How was it for you guys?

it is quite laggy, im not sure why. Doesn't make sense with the netcode does it? CS: S works perfectly for me.

and Friends is terrible. it rarely works for me. im upset with valve over steam...you'd think after all this time something as simple as a friends thing can work, no?

I'm also disappointed with the Friends thing. Once has it told me someone's "online". Most of the time, everyone's offline, and now it won't let me put evman's name on the list. It's just gone.

Hopefully they'll fix the Friends thing soon, as in theory it's a superb idea. And when it does work, it's great.

Had another superb session with Pooky, Evman and Waser tonight. Great stuff! In the event of Friends not working, the #fxhome chatroom is the next best place to locate people. Hope to see some of you there over the weekend for some japery.

yes, playing catch with tables and filing cabinets is definately the most amusing thing I have ever seen in a game online. I just love shooting at someone, only to watch a random barrel fly by and wipe them down in a quarter of a second. Its just brilliance.

Ehehe.

At one point, I was running around the level and saw Tarn running after Evman with an explosive barrel below me, so I took out my pistol and shot the barrel, which caught fire and blew up, sending Tarn flying onto Evman's barrel, which also blew up smile That was great fun.

That wasn't my point. my point ws that I need money for other things. If I had a good PC for stuff I needed, I could play games on it, so the people who bought it for gaming, like it a lot, and the rest already have it. I am stuck with a few wimpy laptops and my good comp. the Mac.

Shut up, you don't know what I have. My parents have them for business, and they bite. My uncle gave me a free one, a 1992 laptop. The mac is great, I just said I can't play the new "good games" on it.
