    I've been looking forward to this release for a while and it's coming out on Eroctober 10th.

    The half-life 2 game itself is nice, but Team Fortress 2 and Portal are what I'm digging.

    TF2 is out my friend...well the beta anyway if you preorder the box. Pestgaming has two servers up. I found a nice hex hack to allow 32 slots. ;-)

    I was on dustbowl briefly this morning - I have forgotten all the keys - and I am of course missing the old maps where I knew everything by heart - dustbowl is similar but not exact to what I used to play.

    Then again I think there were later mods to the maps that I never played. Like I never really played much when the engineers could put in transporters.

    why bother with teamspeak when you can just use in-game audio?

    btw the pest dustbowl 24x7 server owns. runs so smooth and pings so nice for me :D

    Anyone know if the multiplayer is cross platform over steam? As in, 360 vs PC vs PS3 players, against each other.

    not that I am aware of now...although that may be why they are not enabling 32 slots by default. I hate what consoles are doing to PC gaming...

    A few weeks ago they confirmed no cross platform play. It was only an option for PC vs 360 and the gap between mouse/keyboard and controller would be too great. Imagine watching a scout trying to hit someone with a dual analog...

    I just want them to do this once and let the fanboys get pwned so we can end the debate on controller vs. mouse/keyboard once and for all. In a game like TF2 they would get fucking creamed.

    Is there really even a debate? All I can imagine is a console with an hwguy, me with a scout, and laughing my balls off as I circle strafe him and put 3 shotgun blasts into the back of his head as his gun is spraying and slowly turning around. I don't even know how a controller would play a demo or a medic, both would be almost impossible to aim accurately.

    consoles will probably have some aimbot helper built in or something.

    The only thing I don't like about the TF2 is that I have no time to play Warhawk anymore. Oh, and don't forget to join http://www.pestgaming.com for more TF2 pest server talk.
