wow, that does look nice... too bad i put myself on a budget...

i pre-orederd 3 games over a month ago, with bfbc2 being the last of 3 to be released.. so i' not buying any games at any price until at least a month after bfbc2 is out.

Looks good, Steam UI was almost like it belonged to Windows 2000. Now it's sleek and modern.

Noticed it doesn't minimize to a small sidebar and I wish it could go full screen like XBMC or console dashboard.

I personally think it's too big and bloated. I like having my games list as a nice, neat, and compact list, but there isn't an option like that in the beta. I've gone back to the old layout, and hopefully they'll improve on the design before it's actually released officially.

dammit I tried to get this but instead when it restarted I can no longer get steam to connect to the steam network. Any ideas?

I am extremely p_ssed to say the least with Steam / Valve right now!!

Its absolutely imperative that I'm able to Connect to Steam in "Offline" Mode so that I can play my Games on my Notebook when I'm out of town (I don't have access to the Net when I'm away).
For the last 2 days a Steam update has fubarred the ability to connect "Offline" with a "Steam Client update" (was over the weekend).
Now, I just got a new Steam Client Update installed and awesome..it works on my Desktop, i'm able to go to "Offline Mode"
Same Client Update installed on my Notebook and fvck.....same "Cannot Connect to Steam...crap when I try to connect in "Offline mode"...on my notebook of course.

Steam Forum has most folks claiming the Client Update fixed "Offline Mode", but a few are still going through whooaas, including me :(

The $$$ I spend on the games thier and now this.....I absolutely hate this crap.....and great, its happening right when I'm trying to get a nice clean W7 install on my Notebook n tune her all up for when I have to head out of town.....Just want Steam on my notebook with a couple of games...so I can play in Offline Mode, like I was able to do before thier last "Client Update" fvcked it all up......

Thier...I feel better..thats my Steam Rant !

Hanna......sorry for "Ranting" on your Thread...
