While we know we're starting to sound a little like a broken record, Lost
Coast, Day of Defeat, and Aftermath are in the final phases of development
and being polished for release. While the latter two aren't quite at the
point where we can nail down an exact release date, we're expecting to have
Lost Coast ready in a couple of weeks.

One of the interesting features we added to Lost Coast is a commentary
system, where you'll be able to hear first-hand some of the background on
the features and choices in Lost Coast from the team responsible for
building it. If this is something that goes over well with the community,
we'll be adding it into our future titles.

Finally, next week we'll have an announcement of another new game that will
be coming to Steam that wasn't built here at Valve

this is a quote right?
you use the "we" throughout the post but you don't really
work for valve do you?

it would be the last thing we could see in this group valve
deciding to have a presence... why? cause they are too much
guilty to face pc gamers directly
they can't escape being arrogant selfish and careless about
pc gamers request and complaints so they know flames are
the only things to expect

as for what "they" and not you consider "great" and "new"
cause its obvious the text is pure valve propaganda let me
give you what we really should "classify" it

lost coast: is just a single map so valve can test how its
strategy of only targeting the more resourceful customers
will work out
its obvious valve wants for their own customers to have the
biggest income possible so they can inflate prices as high
as possible... cause lets be real... with only these kinds
of customers valve could easily double hl2 price and still
they would buy it
i do believe valve strategy is to lower the over number of
customers by compensate with much higher pricing which pc
gamers with higher income can afford
so basically lost coast is a pure "marketing" test, nothing
new or great about it for the gamer

dod: is a old valve title "ported" to their new engine, so
what is new about this? nothing! and i don't even think
doing this kind of thig is worthy... do you see id porting
original doom or quake to the doom 3 engine? obviously not
its not cause you change the graphics you have a "new" game
games are not graphics but rather gameplay so with the same
gameplay the game is basically the same

aftermatch: its simply an expansion pack for a almost one
year old released title... its more of the same... again
nothing new...

new about all this? no!
great about all this? only if you are a blind brainwashed
submissive steam fanatic

aftermath free as well???? hahahahaha!!!!!
it's so amusing seeing the dumb and almost naive way steam
fanatics think about their master valve
the brain damage has been so deep they truly think valve
will "take good care of them" just like a father to a son
giving aftermath as a gift cause they are very well behaved
boys
wakeup monkey! time to stop being "stoned" all the time!
time to face reality!
you will pay big bucks to play valve's games cause steams
STARVING machine needs lots of continuous non stop feeding
and you and all the dumb steam fanatics will be the food!

will the extra content cost more, or is it free to silver/gold subscribers?

I used to be lost in the shuffle. Now I just shuffle along with the

Lost Coast will be free. Silver/Gold subscribers have already paid for
DOD:S. Dunno about Aftermath.

i'm pretty sure aftermath is free aswell,I'd like to play dod:source but
only aslong as is isnt too pricey, but i can't imagine they would bother
making it too pricey cause very few people would buy it

sorry, but no one cares about your EMPTY rhetoric

the popularity and success of STEAM alone shows that

please move on to anti abortion or anti cruelty to animals where you will do
more good, and then on the way stop to get a life

Doubtful - it is a commercial expansion pack.

They have Counterstrike on Steam and are coming up with Aftermath... As
long as something like Yuri's Revenge doesn't come down the pipeline, it's
fine by me.

For most users, it is too pricey - especially since DoD classic runs on a
lower powered computer for the cost of an old HL box in a retail store.
Unless there's also gameplay changes as well, it will be slow to start.
