half-life 2 installation requirements
what's their answer for people without internet?Q. Will the boxed versions of HL2 require any sort of Steam installations?
Doug Lombardi: During installation the user will be prompted to authenticate the copy and create a Steam account. After that is complete, the single-player and LAN games do not require an Internet connection.
i know almost everyone who has a computer has an internet connection, but this is just bull. weeding out pirates is one thing, but screwing the customer is another.
