Hi All

Ive came across STEAM being mentioned for games downloads and so on, im quite interested in starting to play the HL series just wordering if anyone has used STEAM to dwnload and purchase games and updates.

Its a total pain in the butt. I hate it. I first found it when I bought Half Life 2 and it took me the better part of a week to get the huge downloads.
Perhaps its better now but after the problems I had with it, if the game mentions STEAM I don't buy it.

Agree with T-B it also starts up with your computer and has to be disabled, although then you are not informed of any updates!
