    get a sdd and a better better pc

    I have an HDD and don't really have much an issue with it. Though, they do load somewhat slowish, as the map file is outdated.

    So the generic, characterless models from the first game came back as fleshed out characters in the second (Except Einstein and Scientist 04 (But maybe he's Doctor Magnusson))

    Maybe the generic, characterless models from the second game will return as fleshed out characters?

    Well, except at the near end of EP2 after the Striders battle.

    I'll tell you a riddle. You're waiting for a game, a game that will take you far away. You know where you hope this game will take you, but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter. How can it not matter to you where that game will take you?

    When I heard Barney's voice at the end of the Strider battle, I spent the next 30 minutes searching around for him.

    If you go back from the next map, you find manhack guys dead with a bunch of manhacks.

    This would be the best way to announce HL3:
    In Meet the Pyro lots of subtle things indicating HL: A burning headcrab blurred out in the background, the picture of the black mesa scientists in Klieners lab etc. Then when the video reaches a climax and the pyro goes to take off his mask, he turns away from the camera. Before he turns around those creepy radio sounds from HL2 play. He turns around and reveals he is in fact gman who says 'Not that I wish to imply you have been sleeping on the job'.

    Imagine the hype. Everyone would go crazy.

    That's a logical fallacy; and yes, I do know a little about them. I know for a fact that the bsp format is not he reason for valves optimization in their games.

    That's not a logical fallacy, you are claiming to have knowledge on a subject without backing up your point in the argument.

    Levels load slow because you are preloading the game's information (to improve performance) and due to the fact the game used outdated technology based on the old quake engine.

    It is a logical fallacy; he's using an ad hominem, when he says "or do you just like to say no".

    By your definition, it is. Anyways, do you think Valve is going to make another map format for the next installment?

    Or he could turn around and reveal that he is in fact, a hairy ass, and then he shits out a brick that later is revealed to contain 3 dots leading to speculation!

    From a programmer's point of view, loading the entire map and resources at once is really clever. You won't have to deal with having slow I/O and therefor having missing parts of the map/missing textures and the only requirement is having memory enough.

    Streaming the content might be good but you also need to put down CPU power on the I/O which could be used for other stuff.
