    Hi all,

    last year I went through all the hassle of steam just to get half life 2 up and running.Going through all that was required, registering it and making an account with steam. It really annoyed me to be quite honest and from what I see on other forums, split the gaming community.

    One opinion being steam was there to protect the game from pirates, the other opinion being it was dragonian and excluded people who did not have an internet connection.

    I played the game and it has since been removed from my PC.To be honest I can't even remember my account name let alone the password. I see that an expansion pack is due for release soon.

    Aftermath being an expansion pact does anybody know ,if I was to buy this would I need to reinstall Half life 2 and reactive the account or will it be a stand alone game?

    I really think if it's a case of going through all the hassle of steam again, I'll probably not bother.

    Any thoughts ?

    Cheers Baxter

    No, apparently is standalone, or so I have read.

    It's name has changed from Aftermath to HL2:Episode One

    Due out April 24th (Althought I bet it gets delayed)

    Looks rather juicy!

    ahh ok, after some googling it does look like it will be stand alone afterall, i stand corrected :smashin:
    its still only going to be around 6hrs long though with terms to gameplay. so it might only really be on true fans lists, i wouldnt mind it but i dont want to pay loads for a few hours gaming, id rather replay hl2:clap:
