And I hope for half of those years you haven't been wasting on CSS. That game is garbage compared to the real CS.
 
You played CSS recently? It seems to suck less than it was before. Plus elitist 1.6 jackasses are lame and stupid.

Actually, if you've been playing Counter-Strike: Source lately, Hidden Path have been updating the game rather than Valve. So they have some experience.

Guys, FYI: You can trade "gift" copies of games for other "gift" copies of games, not just TF2 hats. If you bought Orange Box you already have duplicates of HL2 and Episode One. Granted they're probably not high-ticket items but you can make a random Steam player happy for a free game. 
 
Maybe I can get Portal 2 hats and other assorted goodies with this... the ideas are endless.

It's real. It's an actual Quake 3 map. and I have played this and recorded it for posterity. 

  Yes, the mapper got permission from the record company to do this and the custom models. It's not that great but it's interesting in that "wow that was a thing" sort of way. If you got Quake 3 you can grab the map here and marvel at bands and music playing together. 
 
I can't tell which is weirder: This, or Limp Bizkit sponsoring SegaNet for the Dreamcast.

Guys, they've abandoned the "video game-specific channel" thing for years now. They're basically a Spike TV clone. Unfortunately I cannot give my opinions on the network today as I have DirecTV, and they gave G4 the axe.


The website content was pretty good for a while, and that probably was because Patrick Klepek was on staff for about a few months.

Fantastic write-up. It really shows how Valve really is one of the most awesome developers out there.

They've also set up an empire of hats, so I think we'll still have to see on that one. Valve might realize that people value portal a lot, and are willing to pay for it. "

Valve has said before that when they add new content and subsequently do a small weekend sale for it, the sales skyrocket for that title. It'd be smarter just to add the new content and drop the price down to $30/40 for a weekend, they'll probably get more money than just slapping up $5 map packs.

" I'd like to see them try and defend their infamous God Hand review.

I don't need IGN to explain their logic. There's only so many ways to say "We just say what we think the gamers want to hear."



Jesus tapdancing christ. That was almost six years ago, and you still have a bug up your ass over their difference of opinion on that single game? Dude, let it go. It's not worth it anymore.

Granted, I don't go to IGN all that often, but I listen to the GameSpy Debriefings and that show has a very loose style, almost like a radio show. Hell, they rarely talk games and it's fascinating because of that, really.

Hey, with Game Gear games on the 3DS, kids will get to experience the horror that was Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Game Gear. Except with a less shittier screen. :V
