CS:S Beta
August 15th 2004, 16:52 CEST by ProStyle

By the time this gets voted on the quoted dates will have already passed. The discussion is really intended for gameplay impressions from the CS:Source Beta and other comments about the Source engine after we've all played a few rounds. The Half Life 2 preloading content is a relatively moot point, seeing as how there's nothing to comment on except full release date speculation.

Speaking of underdogs, I watched the Iraq:Portugal soccer match the other night and that was about the most exciting game I've seen in a long while, and probably among the most inspiring sports stories I've heard.  The Iraqis went from huddling in gunfire-riddled homes a month ago to being flown out secretly by an RAAF C130 under cover of darkness to beating the Euro runner-up team 3:2.  It was awesome - I was jumping up and down and screaming, and the US Navy family next door were scandalised that I was rooting for Iraq.

They had a striker who got pretty beat up by Portugal's defense and by the second half was falling down whenever anyone got near him.  Never got a card though.

My friends forced me to watch the opening ceremony to the Olympics. I thought the initial parade of Greek myth and history was well done, but then the ensuing four hours of sportsmen wandering around waving was one of the most tedious TV spectacles I've witnessed.

I watched some swimming and boxing yesterday.  Olympic boxing is about the only boxing I can stand to watch any more.  Headgear, (generally) good officiating, skilled boxers, lots of rules to keep people from getting terribly hurt.  So far none of the ugliness of the Seoul Olympics boxing.

The men's 200m freestyle tonight is going to fucking rock. It's the only individual race between Phelps and Thorpe - but you also have multiple gold medallists Pieter Van Den Hoogenband (who upstaged Thorpe in this event in Sydney 2000) and Grant Hackett. Phelps will have to swim out of his skin to win, given that his PB is almost 2 seconds behind Thorpe's world record. It will probably be the most exciting race of the entire Games, given how the drug scandals have devalued the blue ribbon track events.

I watched for about 6 hours off and on yesterday.  Sports I don't care about for the other 4 years(weightlifting, badminton, swimming) I love watching for some reason.

I'm not suprised the Greeks thinking about giving tickets away for free, when the cameras pan up to the stand for anything it looks rediculous. That suprises me, when the olympics were here we wanted tickets to anything we could get our hands on, even eventually settling for a sport we hadn't ever heard of (curling).

If I were in Greece right now, I'd be bitching about how dark Doom III is, then I'd go to the olympics.  They need more sports with no lighting.

The tickets are too expensive. In a lot of the venues, the "cheap seats" are fairly well filled, but all the expensive ones are empty.
#81 by Penguinx

Wouldn't lowering the overall cost of the tickets make more sense than giving tickets away? They'll make no money if the tickets are free.

I liked the story about how some jackass decided that just becuase Iran doesn't recognize Israel as a state, he won't compete against their atheletes in the Olympics.  I hope the Israelis win the gold in judo just to show those fuckers.

Are you implying that the swimmers are 100% clean?  Just look at them, that's not natural.  I'm guessing EPO and HGH.

I'd believe you except that the effects of EPO last two weeks, and it's only detectable by tests for three days.  If nobody's been busted yet it means the tests don't work.  But hey, that South African team coming out of nowhere to win the freestyle relay is a Great Story, let's all celebrate the Purity Of Sport.  Just put on these blinders....

It seems as if the Steam forums are rampant with beleaguered, jobless teens posting every 5 minutes that the pre-load hasn't started yet. Who would have imagined?

If history tells me anything, Valve is going to blow by this week and probably the next two or three before any of this actually goes down. Untill that happens this thread is decidedly free for all.
