    HL2 Problem, I Have No Internet

    For some reason my home DSL won't let me connect to Steam. Qworst DSL only gets sold with a firewall that apparently has "issues" with the Steam service. I can't even return the damn game because it is opened. I understand what valve was trying to do, but they really stink for screwing up...

    Half Life 2-Worth the wait?
