    Yeah, but im pretty sure this is the first major 360 update, the pc has already had 2 updates.

    and I think EA released this patch, not valve, so valve will probably release the patch soon :)

    Hmm, it's been a while since I played it. Might dust it off, update it and try and get some more achievements.
