1 files failed to validate and will be reacquired
When I verify my game cache for this game I get a "1 files failed to validate and will be reacquired" error but it's a endless loop. I notice a few games exhibit this problem as well, can someone else confirm? I heard it has to do with the use of CEG (Custom Executable Generation) on some Steam games.

Me and my friend are getting this problem too...any help would really be appreciated, especially because my friend can't even launch the game, even though it was working fine the day before.

Ditto... "file failed to verify and will be reacquired" error, but does not appear to actually reacquire and update. Uninstall via control panel then reinstall, deletion of local content via Steam and reinstall, and manual install of dx content does not resolve issue.

From what I've been digging through the past couple of days it's a issue (not really a issue) with CEG (Custom Executable Generation). Many Steam games uses this and any game that uses CEG has a file modified with a unique key bound to your account, because that file is always changing it will never verify. Therefore if a game uses CEG and has this issue, just ignore it as long as it plays fine.
