Well I just got doen playing for a few minutes and this game is INSANE... it is so freaking fast and running around exchanging chairs and stuff with the grav gun is awesome... those darn guns ruin everything . I love the toilet icon also.

Yeah... I like how in the prison level you could pick up the cord and plug it in to turn the fan on for a few seconds (the fan room has a bunch of nice items in it so I am guessing it would suck them into the fan and kill them)... but all it is is running around picking up and launching things as fast as possible pretty much :\.

On a side note... it seems for whatever reason... either every server is down or has a very high ping.... I don't think that is just me either.

There are alot of people creating servers on thier own machine just to test it out... The games fun as hell with the physic's engine, loved launching the car into my friend to kill him right before his barrel hit me...

Woot, sounds great to me. Not the greatest of multiplayer modes, but beggers can't be choosers I guess. The physics should be very interesting to play with, I can't wait to see what kind of tactics arise from this. Hopefully CTF and other game modes will be added into it as time goes on, should make the game very interesting.

Edit: OMG, I just realised the greatest thing ever: They brought back the Counter-Strike shield with this! Well...not literally, but if you pick up a big metal container and hold it in front of you, it's basically the same thing .

The MP is great and will only get better with time.
You can play on teams but its wierd spawning at the same place as your enemy because they can kill you before you even change guns. There were other tweaks on the server I was on like slow motion when you die or moon gravity.

If they do that, they'd be late. Welcome to UT2004's Bombing Run.

I cant join in HL2DM as well as single player and now realised Valve screwed up the update big time.
