Got my Special Ediion Copy, Left it on my dvd shelf, cant touch it till the end of the Semester. Lots of animating to do. If you played it let us know how both CS and HL are.

Be glad that you put it on the shelf Will, people are having a hard time with the game due to some server problems and a wild bug.

People are reporting that it takes hours for Steam to re-localize every file that it needs to run, and that some cannot even log in or connect.

Also, alot of folks are reporting a stuttering in the sound throughout the game. Here's a link: http://www.halflife2.net/forums/showthread.php?t=51351

It took me 40 minutes to install and finally play the game. I hate Steam, well at least when it comes to registering it. =/

It look good though. I like how you can pick up stuff. Plus the AI is great. I haven't had a chance to play CS, though. Might tonight.

How is it running on your comp so far?

Maybe later for a lan party or something I will be able to pick it up and play it...Until then I can only wait

It kinda hiccups everyonce in a while, but I have everything pretty much maxed out. With the suggested settings I run it @ ~75fps.

Sweet, what are your specs? I was hoping it wouldn't lag too bad on my machine becuase I didn't want to upgrade on it until summer or fall

512 RAM
2400 Athlon running @ 2.00 GHz (I am underclocking.)
All in Wonder 9700 Pro.

The loading times are kinda annoying, cuz it seems to load every few in-game meters.
