Nice! You better got to downloading the new dlc though, almost 4Gb worth and servers are hammered.

How good it looks will depend on how good video drivers for Mac are and how OpenGL looks in the source engine.

Post some screenies zoomy

I've read nothing but bad things so far for Source games and OSX. Most people say just to run Boot Camp for the best performance. But I'm curious to see what zoomy finds out.

i have been using HL2 in OSX and it's been great. I have nothing bad to say about it.

not a fan of boot camp because it's just another OS for me to manage. meh.

I bought as well, I bought the bundle.

Also, if you have L4D2, or buy it before Thursday you get a frying pan and a hat on TF2. The Ellis hat.

Do people still play this? I hope they do, lol.

Well for $5 each, it's be a stupid decision NOT to buy it.

I think it's inevitable DD. Given that OpenGL support has been added to the Source engine, and they already have it for Mac, I would think it shouldn't be too long before they release a Linux client.

Then again, that assumes the demand is there. If it is not, then we won't see a Linux client.
