    Some people are concerned the legal arguments about valve flogging it through steam may delay the release. Wonder if its worth sending vivendi an email saying that:
    "I have preordered a boxed version through a retailer, but if you arse around with release date again i will have to cancel that and get it off steam so that i can while my wait by playing cs:source. And i am not the only one."
    Tough on mirrors, tough on the causes of mirrors.

    I'm so fed up of waiting that quite frankly I can't be bothered to rush anywhere for it. Besides I think I'll wait to see what you guys say about it before spending anything. I just don't have a warm fuzzy feeling about it. I waited with bated breath for MOH Pacific assault and when the demo came out thought it was a bit of a dog. Has anyone played the full version? If so is it still like something off an Atari stood in the corner of a 1980s pub? (for those of you that could get into a pub in the 1980s)

    I DO live in NEWCASTLE !!! I said that the game shop owner looked on his pc and his release date was just coming up as November.His new peices are as bad as his used,try cashing in a few games with him.It cost me 5 good games to get doom.As for Jessops you must mean the bloke in the shop as I've never given anyone directions on how to get to Jessops.
