Day of Defeat Source for 5 usd, is it low enough?

I have downloaded the game to play it for the weekend for free on STEAM, my ping has come down to "normal" after a few rounds of Team Fortress 2, which I love. The thing is, I tried Day Of Defeat for a few rounds, I used to play a lot the original one back in the day, and I loved it. But is 5 bucks low enough for this game?

Well, I think that Im not going to purchase it. Not because Iam a cheap bastard, but because I dont see myself playing a whole lot of Day Of Defeat in the future. It seems to be great and interesting like the first one, tactic and everything, I wont complain about the gameplay because no complaints there... they even simplified a lot of stuff from the first one.
The thing is that there is too much going on in TF2 at the moment (a "heavy" update on the way and not even close of having finished with my doctor and pyro achivements), and I love that game too much to go and play another grey WWII multiplayer shooter.
Also I have COD4 for my not so comic multiplayer needs (I purchased for 40 bucks on STEAM, it was for that price for a weekend), also a game I love, but sadly the only servers that have less than 250ms ping are the argentinian ones. Is a shame, I dont get why I get better ping on TF2 servers than COD4 servers. Is one of the bad things about paying to play a mp game here in latin america, pings.

Also Im having time issues with all the study allready, I have to leave some room for the single player.

Well, there it goes: thanks DOD Source, but no thanks.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
