Valve plumbs Half-Life one more time

More patches

Valve Software has announced yet another round of patches for Half-Life and Counter-Strike. Updates numbered and 1.5 respectively will be available "in the coming weeks", which in Valve terms means nothing. Team Fortress 2 anybody? Needless to say these will grind the Internet to a halt as everyone and their assorted animals scrambles for the data, but despite only highlighting a number of fixes for both titles and Valve's Ricochet anti-cheating technology, we understand that a new map from Iikka Keranen, de_piranesi, will be included with CS 1.5. Many people have joined forces to promote the downfall of Counter-Strike's online community since the release of version 1.4, but it is still far and away the most popular online first person shooter.
