    If you don't own the game by the noon on the 21st (PST time zone), what the hell man? What's so hard about a fucking dollar?

    'Nuff Said.

    Note: As always, sorry if this has been posted already. Did a quick search and didn't see it.

    No, CS 1.6 is its own stand alone product on Steam.

    Tch, I'm waiting for Black Mesa to come out. Even if it take forever...
    Honestly, I tried to play Half-Life: Source and it was really fun to start with (if dated). But when you get to the bits where you shoot guards it's not as fun. Plus, I seem to remember getting stuck in some green chamber.

    Yep...a must buy if you can spare the 98 cents [​IMG] . Having Half Life 1 enables you to play the mod "The Specialists" which is free, has multiplayer, and is totally matrixed out and badass.

    Yes, this is awesome, buy it, and go play the free mods like Natural Selection.

    Bought this before I saw the topic. Always was looking for this and never had the time/cheapass-ness to buy it but 98c?... fuck it it was bought instantly!

    There are some places where you can download the mod version of Counter Strike. Like here.

    Not sure if it works though.

    Is this a download or a shipped disc? It'd be a nice buy, but not with dial-up if it's a download.

    Last question, then, is there some method of downloading it that supports resuming?
