What a surprise! I got this game for the PC almost 6 years ago. Thought it was the end for that purchase after not using my PC but here it is. Downloaded the game without even asking for the disk. If there ever was a right way to manage DRM, this is it right here. Steam!!

Am I wrong to think that clicking the developer link should link to the developer webpage? That used to be the standard behavior here at MacUpdate.

It used to be that way, but now clicking on the dev's name will run a search for that developer. If you want to get to the dev's website, click on the "Visit developer's site" link.

Ah, how bizarre that I've never noticed the "Visit developer website" link.

Give it time, it's definitely on the list. Personally, I'm looking forward to L4D2. I'm getting tired of restarting every time I want to play...

The original Half-Life, Valve's debut title, won more than 50 game-of-the-year awards and sold more than eight million retail units sold worldwide. Quite simply it's one of the most popular and most enjoyable PC games of all time.

Using the income Valve received from the original they have invested in developing the sequel, which far exceeds the original and again changed the face of first person shooting. By taking Half-Life's suspense, challenge and visceral charge, realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors even the emotions of people around him.

The intense, real-time gameplay of Half-Life 2 is made possible only by Source, Valve's new proprietary engine technology. Source provides major enhancements in characters. physics, graphics and AI. Source's shader-based renderer, like the one used at Pixar to create movies such as Toy Story and Monster's, Inc., creates the most beautiful and realistic environments ever seen in a video game.
