I think that's good though so you get the "full experience".

So the demo = a new mission that isn't in the game?

runs at 30-40 fps on my rig! That's 20-30 fps faster than Doom 3! :)

Well I'm sure glad for this demo, it just helps me to make sure I don't buy it.

That's the first cool thing Valve has done so far wrt HL2, warn potential customers of the sucky experience required to play it. :udawg:

So, if the demo needs steam, then what's all the crap about it preventing piracy? Spyware anyone? Oh, didn't buy the game and won't be downloading this lame ass demo either... :rw:

the demo needs a steam account so that pirates dont look at the code and figure ways around how to get the game to run without it (like they have done already) :)

Actually, I'd say a good majority, above 90%, of the Earth's 7 odd billion haven't played Half Life 2.

If you haven't played it then shut up.

I have no problems with Half Life 2 since the patch. The game runs totally smooth. Back when I did have stuttering it was a little annoying at times (having a 10 second stutter once in a while in the canals) but liveable. The game was still loads of fun. The minor stuttering does not detract from the bulk of the game nor the story.

Dled the frekkin demo, tried to install:

C:\Valve\Steam
"Steam needs 3250MB of free space" mmkay thats one big proggy
D:\Valve\Steam
"Steam needs 53MB of free space" mmkay the drive has 48GB free.

So unless I clear up 3500MB of space on C: I cant install this fkin demo. Thanks valve.

Well, it's about time then to burn some of your Pron on DVD-r. (xmasgrin)

Since when does steam need 3 gigs of space? Steam it self is less than 100mb I believe. The only thing that I could see using 3 gigs would be the full version of Half-Life 2.

With this demo you can try the wonderful world of Steam and witness with your own very eyes and ears the dreadful stuttering. :D

As someone said, this demo sums up pretty well the whole "Half Life 2 experience" :p
