    Default VH Links.com Steam community (PC gaming)

    Hey guys, I've started a Steam community page for the links - it's a new trial feature of the Steam platform that you will have installed if you own any games like half life 2 etc. If you are not familiar with it, Steam allows you to purchase and download games online, it also provides downloadable trailers, a freinds list, anti-cheat safeguards, auto patching of games and the like. It's grown into a very nice little service, similar in some ways I guess to what something like Xbox live provides.

    What this latest beta allows us to do is set up a page for VH links members. Once onboard you can set up a profile, see what other members are playing, join in chat rooms, or voice chat, set up games, join games with other linkers etc It's a pretty cool little utility, plus you get to throw a toilet at OLO, so that's gotta be a plus side! You can also add non steam games to the game list so you have a centralised launchpad for all your games.

    If you are not a gamer, or don't have steam installed, you can pick it up from www.steampowered.com and join in the chat features if you want, though remember it's primarily a gaming platform.

    To enable the beta:-

    -Go to the settings page on steam
    -Go to the beta section and select 'the steam community'
    -Your steam will restart, and and update.
    -Go to the new 'community' tab and set up a profile.

    To get added to the VH links group, send a freind request to Goo or OLO on steam. We'll add you in as soon as you can.

    Heres the community page link -
    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/VHL

    You can also use this to add me or OLO to your freinds list by clicking our profile and following the link in the top right. Invite is via 'invite only' by an admin.

    Hopefully some people join up and we can get a few games up and running.
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......

    One of the coolest moments in Half Life 2 is early on where that dude orders you to pick up the can and throw it away

    Homer: No one snuggles with Max Power. Just strap on and feel the Gs!

    American Coast Guard: Back off Canadians we got them.
    Canadian Coast Guard: You back off hosers, they are in Canadian waters, eh.
    American Coast Guard: Beat it you puck smacking maple suckers!
    Canadian Coast Guard: Take a hike you Shatner stealing Mexico touchers!

    Bart: Who the hell is this?
    Jack Bauer: I’m Jack Bauer, who the hell is this?
    Bart: Me, er… I’m Ahmed Adudi
    Jack: Chloe, get me all you can on Ahmed Adudi… Does anyone there know Ahmed Adudi?
    Chloe O’Brien: Ahmed Adudi; wealthy Saudi financier… Disappeared into Afghanistan in the late 90s…
    Jack: … Really?
    Chloe (ironically): No Jack it’s a joke name, you’re being set up.
    Jack: DAMMIT!

    Van Halen and Red Orchestra der Ostfront. The circuit is now complete.


    I play Red Orchestra on Steam. Great WWII East Front game built off of the Half Life engine.
    Very well supported and excellent servers with a lot of people playing at all times.

    Check it out.
    Video.

    Oh this is badass too.
    Shows some of the evolution of this game. It's come a long way in just a year.

    I downloaded this game from Steam for $20. No regrets. Awesome.

    Beta of TF2 will be available September 17th to players who pre-order the Orange Box of HL2 through Steam.

    Fortress Forever will be available on or before September 17th. All you need is a copy of HL2.

    See you all there. I'm usually at -=FFS=-Frost Zone server or [DAD]1 or 2 servers.

    That's pretty awesome. I been waiting for the Black Mesa mod to come out for ages, dunno if they'll ever actually finish that or not!!

    TF was so much fun, I never really got hard core into it or joined a clan or anything, just random good times!
