Can't play HL2/CS:S all of a sudden.
Well I was playing HL2 thursday at lunch and everything work fine. Friday at lunch I went to play and steam began to update. I let it and then I went to play. On HL2, CS:S, and HL2 deathmatch it loads the game but when the menus are susposed to come up they don't. like in HL2 the new game, load game... doesn't come up. So i figured maybe my drivers needed to be updated, I updated them and nothing. So i uninstalled steam thinking that maybe the the updates didn't download right. After i reinstalled steam I still get this crap.
Did anybody else get this update?
Is the HL2 games working for everybody else?
Anything else I forgot to try?
I don't fell like signing up to the steam forums yet so i want to try and fix it here first,lol.
