Ah, must've missed that in the first read through .

I'm not really sure when VAC was last updated, but supposedly VAC2 is a near complete overhaul of their system. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Also, some Valve staff were former Microsoft employees .

Hrm, it seems that the piracy of Counter-Strike: Source was a nail-in-the-coffin, as neither Half-Life 2 nor Masquerades: Bloodlines has multiplayer. I don't want to sound pessimistic, but of the gamers "in-the-know", I'd think that more of them would download games if they're largely single-player. Because it's SP, there should be a less need for patches, and since Counter-Strike: Source was cracked, it's very likely that Half-Life 2 will be foiled by the same method (after all, it was the source engine files that were cracked).

I've already got my gold package reserved, too. It's kind of a shame, because with Counter-Strike: Source being so quickly cracked (I guess the beta served as training), it leaves little incentive for questionable buyers to order the full game.

Meh, I think Steam could use some server to client authentication (and vice versa). Just lock out the games if the client can't verify an encrypted code, or maybe if the client can't confirm the hash marks of the main source engine files.

Yor last names Freeman? What a coincidence! Talking to Gabe and your last name is the same as the main character in his games!

I completely understand your love for Gabe. After all the guy has a lot of surface area to love.
