Is there a new batch of glitches recently? Several times in the past week I've had problems similar to the last round of glitches. I'm opted out of all betas.
The other day I finished HL2 and so, for the ten thousanth time, I started HL2 Episode 1 and imeadiately noticed lossing saved games, lock ups and screw ups. The elevator in the citadel wouldn't move. Several times Alex would just stand there and not follow. Most of the time I could get past them but then the crashes became more frequent. So I said to hell with it and moved on to Episode 2. I started seeing crashes right away.
It's bad enough that they're taking forever and a day to come up with a new episode but when the games we paid for and have been playing over and over again start crapping out, I'm getting ♥♥♥♥♥♥. If I was in beta mode I would expted issues. But again, I'm not in beta mode. There's nothing wrong with my computer. It's just like last time but with more crashes.
Steam or Valve or whoever is responsible for making this stuff work right...FIX IT!
HL2 wasn't even supposed to be internet dependant. When I bought it it could be played without internet access. Which is why I got it. I didn't have internet where I lived other than dial up. The next thing I know it won't work unless you're online and logged into steam. Unless they changed it, it wouldn't even work in offline mode. A message box would just pop up saying it's not available in offline mode.
Get it together already guys. Your followers are getting tired of this kind of stuff. If you're not going to relase another episode or series AT LEAST keep the existing series working right.
