    It's nice to know that Steam are still supporting their fanbase and their older games :)

    It is fairly generous of Valve to be doing this, at the very least they could have asked £4.99 and likely sold a bundle, then reduced over a sale, and eventually free ... plus the SDK for it? God love 'em!

    Well, it's not even the Half Life team, it's some of the dev who worked of L4D, so it's not really slowing Episode 3 down, nor is Portal 2.

    although I can't wait for it, I wish people would stop complaining about Episode 3, it'll come when it's ready.

    Half Life - 1998
    6 year gap - raised the bar so far they brought the roof down
    Half Life 2 - Nov 2004
    1 year and 6 months later ...
    Half Life 2: EP1 - Jun 2006
    1 year and 4 months later ...
    Half Life 2: EP2 - Oct 2007
    so far the wait has been 2 years 9 months ... expecting them to raise the bar again?

    I am.

    If you worked at valve do you think you would get any work done, the amount of testing on their cool games must take all their time bugger coding tbh!

    It's great to see a software company behaving like this... this is the best publicity they can get.

    Kudos to Valve

    I am psyched for this game, I know it's Valve but really I can't believe its free. It looks so polished and awesome.

    loved the old UT2K4 mod of this, and have been waiting years fro black cat to finish this mod, now their a part of valve i guess it makes sense to let it out freely to the public instead of canning it or charging for it as it was never ment to be charged for.
