I'm taking a pass for now on SIN.....
Just finsihed playing some sin 1 and its still alot of fun and it doesnt look that bad for a game that uses the quake 2 engine, sin still holds up to this day in gameplay and also think half life over shadowed this game which i think is and was on par with it, if not better than hl only thing that messed this game up was a few bugs and ****ty timing

??? Sin 1 source ??? Is the Sin 1 game modified in some way to look better or is this just the original Sin game. I don't see any mention of "Sin 1 source" on their web site.

I think you would still have to register through steam.

Also the version of Sin is just the same old version as before, it has sound fixes, resolution fixes and apparently they have included little things relating to sin episodes (like a picture of jessica etc).

I just purchased it, waiting on dowload

Cant wait man - im a HUGE siN fan, and to be able to play the original game in high res while we wait for episode one is so cool.

I'll be getting this today for sure.

EDIT: lol I need something to break my Oblivion addiction.

Heh, will Sin also make me puke, like how HL2 did? (although oddly, CS:S doesn't)? Will it be stuttery like HL2? or buggy like Vampires?

Even so, I Still have to register with Steam? I'll pass then. I refuse to be bound to Steam.

Yeah, because we're getting a 45 hour FPS that costs 180 dollars on may 9th. They already said that they were going to introduce new gameplay features in future episodes and upgrade the graphics.

They should release Sin 1 Source two weeks before Sin Episode 1 for those who bought the package, just to get people into the mood.
