How about I drink, you both write, and then I point and laugh? :p

(actually, relating to point and laugh--I'm in the library taking this idiot online class. (well, I'm putting off the one last thing just so I can ROCK OUT in the library) anyway, there are these two things that have High Scores (little quiz things). I sat here all yesterday to get the high score. and today, I have the highest score in both. sad, eh?)

Go easy on the guy, not everyone keeps upto date on everything ;)

Still this may be interesting for me, as I will be hopefully getting a new card in the next few months :p

cheer up digi, you shouldn't have hyped yerself up too much.

No way, Valve hasn't said anything about a delay and until they do I'm expecting it to be available on 9/30.

"Pssssssst! 'Steam' is Valve's new pet project, a new way of selling/distributing their software independant of a publisher....mebbe they want to have a bit of an exclusive test run period to help encourage it's early adoption.....

For some reason I just have no doubts what-so-ever that I will be playing Half-life2 on the 30th....

I believe it's coming on the 30th, period.

haha.. man I cant believe anyone believed valve. It'll be lucky to come out this year I reckon. Hell even doom3 might ship before it! :D

just to let you guys know, you can get a 9800XT right now through dell. The drawback is you have to buy a whole new system. Dell stated at the CA launch that they have the XT's in stock and available in thier new gaming systems.

I also belive that Doom3 dose have a chance of beating HL2 out, i think there is a good chance it will be out this year!

Meh, it ain't bad at 1024x768 once I got AA working...but the 30fps character animation just makes it always seem a bit jerky to me no matter what my framerate is. :(

Heh. That's nothing. Imagine if (gasp!) Duke Nukem Forever was hitting the shelves before both of them. :D :D :D
Seriously, i have a feeling it will be out this year (at x-mas time):p

Who wants to make a bet that DNF will come out before HL2? :lol:

I'm not too worried about HL2, I'm sure it will come out soon.
