We woke up, checked our Steam library, and suddenly saw: Half-Life 2, updating. 3.7gb. What is this? A prelude to Half-Life 3? Steam Summer Sale content? Something to do with the trading card game? Oh Gaben, how you toy with our hearts.
Launch the game, play it through. Nothing is different. What is this? Well, some code-savvy consumers have digged around in the update, and found out that the 3.7gb update is annoyingly… language support for Korean, Portuguese and Thai localisations.
High five to Koreans, Portuguese, and Thai guys. To everyone else, I understand your solemn feeling of betrayal. Turn automatic updates off, it’s the only way to avoid heartbreak.
