    Unless this has already been posted elsewhere...

    The Half-Life 2 multiplayer is out! It's called "Half-Life 2: Deathmatch" and will come down through steam automatically today.

    Looks pretty sweet, just some parts of the levels with no enemies (obviously) and guns scattered everywhere. Go frag!

    No servers are up though :(.

    thank god for that.

    thought it would be when they annouced the "suprise"

    i think that lack of multiplayer has been the cheif complaint about hl2, bar the steam system of course :|

    Hmmm just played the prison map, not the overwatch one I think the game is pretty fun but I have to say 2 maps is seirously lacking, I mean I thought the defualt maps in CS:S weren't enough ... :blah:

    Was lucky anough to find a good server straight off. Was playing with about 8 other people, good fun. More maps are needed though.

    trying to play the game past 3 hours comfortable, but still getting a lot of lag in the servers. Is annoying to say the least

    I thought I was lagging until I lowered my video settings a bit. I played the next two hours "lag" free. It's a blast as far as regular deathmatch goes. The biggest laugh I had was when I caught a guy trying to get through a corridor that had a shelving unit knocked over. He was in between the shelves and having a hard time getting out. I picked it up and drug him around with me for awhile, until someone killed us both with a rocket.

    funnyest thing is when someone picks up an explosive barrel with a grav gun and you blow it to bits right in front of them.

    Best online game ive played for a long long time. Servers are naturually laggy, moreso on the grav-gun heavy levels. Need a faster weapon switch cause i was forever pressing 3 then 5 then 1 on the keyboard and my mouse wheel dont work too good :/
