Shacknews has reported that as of right now, all Radeon owners can download Half-Life 2: Lost Coast and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch for free from Valve's Steam distribution system. Could this have anything to do with the lackluster launch of the HD 2900 XT. This "reporter" certainly thinks so.
Both of these games are kick ass, especially Half life 2 Deathmatch. Of course I just happen to be the number one HL2 DM player in my clan (mentok1982), so I am a tad biased. If any of you (Radeon owners or otherwise) think you have what it takes to pwnZ0r me, go ahead and jump on my clan's deathmatch server tonight. I'll learn you a thing or two.
EDIT: You don't have to be good at the game to join any of our servers. As long as there is room for you and you play by the rules (when you enter the server the rules are listed) you are welcome.
7:00PM Eastern: The server is empty, but I am going to get on and see if anyone joins me.
7:20PM Eastern: I can't get on the server. It is not responding. There is a Steam update today and it is messing up all my Vista Gadgets and my Instant Messageners. I have sent messages to the server admins, so hopefully the will fix it soon.
7:50PM Eastern: Well, we will have to try again later after Steam is working properly. Lots of people are having Steam realted issues after today's Steam update.
