Do you read at all?

Lets recap.

CS:S is a stand alone product - it has never been free.

The original CS was a mod for the original HL. It has always been free for download.
you are beating a dead horse. geesh...

"CS is alive and well. If Valve "killed" it, I wish other Games would get the death knell from Valve too. That would sell millions of copies of UT3 I'd wager.[/quote]" quote from a previous post in this thread

If you bought one of the "packages" when HL2 came out Bronze, Silver, Gold etc. CS:S was included.
If you buy HL2 today CS:S is not included. CS:S is all by its self.
A+
agreed, Plus gold stars.

Wasn't CS:S the multiplayer FOR HL2? HL2 DM didn't even come out till sometime after the game release...

My comment was about dispelling the idea of Valve killing CS. It was not about the quality of UT3.

No... DM was the multiplayer for HL2 and I believe it worked on launch day. Whether it did or not isn't the issue, but CS:S has ALWAYS been considered it's own entity even when it's bundled. Just because it uses the same engine doesn't mean it's connected like that.
