The Steam packages purchases begins next week but all the games, except CS:Source, won’t be available until the retail release. Notice that CS:Source will be released before HL2 and will be playable sometime next week. It’s being almost two years since I dropped my Counter Strike addiction, but I think that CS:Source is here to bring me back to sleepless nights drinking coffee and complaining about stupid campers/team killers :) .
The strange thing to notice is how Valve doesn’t seem to care about Vivendi’s threats of not releasing Half Life 2 for another 6 months. I’m really curious to see how things turn out.
