Hopefully they will add a manual refresh button to the Friends Playing window - whenever I'm playing with my brother, the listing only refreshes when the game fills, strangely enough. Only workaround so far that I've found is closing the window, and re-opening, but that's pretty annoying :(

Also, melee needs nerfing - is it just me, or can you be melee'd by someone when you attack them from behind? It's really annoying when they don't even have to look at you to stop you, just stand still and bash their mouse button into oblivion :p

I played this on Xbox360 the other day.

I hate aiming with a controller. Definitely, it isn't as great as a mouse.

Indeed. I think that all all FPS games are better on PC, because of the aiming in my opinion.

I have now changed this in the User CP
I just consider it more of a challenge.
But it is way more fun to aim with a mouse easier to turn and blow off that zombies head at high speeds this way
controller you more slowly turn and take damage in the process, unless of course you crank up the sensitivity, but that makes precise aim very difficult

Well yeah. Back on-topic. Someone has any information about next update? Valve's been working with it quite long.

Yeah, read that yesterday. I hope the SDK is coming soon so we get custom maps, wohoo!:thup:

    Just noticed there's a delay of at least 2 minutes before each post. Guess I can't post Headline News quickly as I used to.

    As far as I can tell, there are definitely things I need to get accustomed to first.
