Legal Well, it would appear that Sony isn't particularly pleased with the fact that their console has been hacked into oblivion. It has officially filed suit against the fail0verflow hacker group and Geohot, after filing a temporary restraining order yesterday to try and remove the jailbreak information from the web (how cute).

Half life one was something else at its time.
But part two is very nice in the graphics department. I have never seen a game scale so good, even a freaking pentium 3 laptop. Heck my cousin experienced it with an integrated intel and a pentium m.
But as far as polished and fun to play, well you pass them once finish. Even quake is more fun single player, dont even mention online.
Sure they added a gravity gun and vehicles that actually work good. But you still feel half life original in the game all over.
Fear was more fun than half life 2.
Frozen sand the makers of urban terror describe the source engine as unusable for online play, something about the hitboxes moving around like crazy.

The sheer mass of people playing CS:S, Team Fortress 2 and L4D disagree with that notion. Yes, they're all Source-games and the most played ones.

At the moment there are players in:
14,706 Counter-Strike: Source
11,376 Team Fortress 2
6,291 Left 4 Dead 2

And it's night in the US now. During the day the peak is at:
74,126 Counter-Strike: Source
20,713 Team Fortress 2
14,422 Left 4 Dead 2

Yeah, about 100,000 gamers online playing Source-games. I quite consider that a success.

Yes, that's a crazy notion. I've been playing Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 online basically non-stop since part one came out. It ranks among my top 5 of best games ever made (I generally combine games from the same series into one), and I've had so many great and memorable moments playing L4D 1/2...

Source engine not for multipleyer - lolwut? Must be crazy week, what, with all the pro-MPEG-LA nonsense going around.
