i was thinking in the same line... the way i understood this ,CS source is a copy/paste of the original game with better graphics and maybe a few more things . and while the action is intense , never liked the buy weapon thing in a counter terrorist game. i was mostly interested in Hl2 Mp capabilities (since already was spoiled by the singleplayer beta) wich a mp was looking more promising than the original mp in Hl1. thanks to the physics engine and the Gravity gun. MP capabilities that just recently discovered doesnt exist.

means that we will need to depend from the MOd community to finish the game where they left it . just like with Doom3. its incredible that a game took soo much time ~6 years and it doesnt even ship with its own Mp .

It's more economical if the developers were to think this way:

"What bother with the multiplayer which 99% will probably complain about, when we already have a mod community that will make one for us for FREE!"
because Counterstrike plays completely diferent than Hl. its not HL ,but a mod conversion of a counterterrorist game. so the same concept will be in Hl2. but yes , someone will do a mod for it ,but it will be better if the main developers already inlude it in their game. their skills and resources are greater.

Wait a minute, didn't we saw some screenshot that was announced as a HL2 Multiplayer shot at some point? Give me a few moments and I'll find it...

Damn...I was convinced that TF2 would be included in the game as MP also...I'd been saying since the announcement of HL2 that it would be, but I guess not.

CS: Soruce is not really cut and paste. They took some things from Condtion Zero and from the last CS1.6 and combined them together. So its more of the best of both worlds. I know a few here are upset. But again you realize that you folks are an extremely small minority. CS has been the cash cow keeping them alive for the last 3 years. Value owns CS. I see nothing wrong with making it the MP part of HL as it still is the most popular game played on-line. Besides...Value gave us the crappy Q1 maps in HL1 as on add on; so whos to say they wont add DM/CTF later as a "add on"?

Why you don't just wait for the Mod Community to create a DM or TF2? I'm not than sure that they will. I'm just glad that Half Life 2 is making ANY progress! I'm getting really excited about HL2's release and cannot wait to download my own personal copy. Counter Strike looks to be fun, never really PLAYED the first one. I think HL2 will be a big treat for me.

If the first Half Life is anything to go, I wouldnt be to disapointed, because without PB, a multiplayer game is **** full stop

I could care less about CS. Bring on SP and DoD:Source!

I hate what Valve has done. Buying up all of the best mods and making people buy them for half life 2. For example the bronze package will include HL2 and CS:Source where the Silver package will include HL2, CS:Source, and DoD:Source and finally the Gold will include HL2, CS:Source, DoD:Source, and Half Life:Source (original on new source engine).

I guess im getting gold then.

I thought DoD:S was only availible in the Gold package, then HL:S would be in the Silver package, and then all versions of it would include CS:S? And they did buy up the mods, but they still give the originals out for free. It's just that the remade Source versions are only availible with HL2. Personally, I wish they did that with Natural Selection, I'd LOVE to see a Source version of that but the development team isn't so sure that they're going to port it. Oh, and it really wouldn't suprise me if they made DoD:S availible to all versions of the game later on. If it's only availible in a certain package, not many people are going to play it.

Though now that I think about it, I'm almost wondering if they didn't make a normal HL2 Deathmatch BECAUSE of the game mechanics of the game. I mean things like the physics gun are really cool, but in an online environment Lag could be an absolute killer to those physics, not to mention balancing issues with it. Still, the more I think about it the more I think it would've been nice if they could've just added a few DM levels and HL2 weapons and called it a multiplayer mode, but it still seems like it would get really old, really quick.

Once again. I really dont know what rocks you have been living under but this is 6 month to a year old news that CS:S would BE half life 2 multiplayer. As far as buying weapons every round... You only have to buy new weapons when you die and for a while now they have had auto buy. Based on how much money you have you just hit your auto buy key and it will load you up with weapons, ammo, armor and grenades. You can even customize the script with the weapons/items you prefer. And bunny hopping was fixed like 2 years ago or so.

As far as it just being a port over... have you seen CS: Source? If not then go download some videos. Yes the map layout is similar but thats it. EVREYTHING has been redone. The textures, skins, weapons, explosions, effects basically everything has been redone.

I am playing CS: Source with people that hated Counter-strike but they love CS:Source.

This is pretty old but since its "old news" that CS is Half-Life's multiplayer, then what does this mean:
http://www.planethalflife.com/half-life2/

"There will be drivable vehicles in both single and multiplayer. "

Its Planet Half-Life's HL2 FAQ... and they say vehicles in multiplayer. If the mutliplayer is CS, does that mean there may be vehicles in CS?

I doubt it because this is pretty old, but Its deffinitely interesting. CS with vehicles (even 1 or 2) would be pretty damn cool
