    im loving it so far but im not too impressed with the balancing of the marines, they're way too accurate and dangerous for normal difficulty.

    I fell off the hanging crates A LOT! But then, valve's character movement has never been great for accurate platforming.

    The torrents should be faster now that lots of us are seeding. When I was downloading it was painful for about 2 hours.

    Finally got a spare few hours to play this

    1. Game downloaded and installed - CHECK
    2. cans of lager - CHECK
    3. Various munchies - CHECK
    4. Missus out for a few hours - CHECK
    5. Phone set to silent - CHECK
    6. Surround sound on and curtains closed - CHECK


    I launch the game and damn steam decides it needs to download Source SDK Base 2007...FACEPALM

    Another hour before I get to play. FML.

    enjoying the game so far, but the loading screens are sooo annoying, 3 loading screens before you even get of the train thing at the beginning!

    Is anyone else having trouble with the flashlight only working on some textures? I'm fumbling round in the dark here!

    Loving the new dialogue, but no sign of Barney - I guess his bar tab finally caught up with him...

    I saw Barney during the train ride, banging on the door as normal.

    Flashlight has been fine for me, I haven't had any of the performance issues that people have mentioned. Just the slow level loading... :grr:

    Gotta say that some bits are ridiculously hard now. The Apaches in particular seem to excel at anti-Freeman duties.
