Warp2search reports (http://www.warp2search.net/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=16033) that HL2 may not be released before September 24 2004. I'm not even surprised.

Half Life 2 Delayed... AGAIN
=>Posted by: Stimpy.
=>Tuesday, January 20 @ 13:28:57 CET

Just had an email from Gameplay.com telling me that the release date for Half Life 2 has been changed to Sep 24 2004

Thats 248 days until release!!!

I guess they must be completly re-making that game! Shame nVidia got so upset about their performance, that they forced a re-work of the GFX Engine to make nVidia GPU's perform better.

--------------------------------------------------


and according to them it's NVIDIA fault for these if true ?!??! :mad:

just speculation...

and hl2 is fast falling down the list of must-have games @ the moment for me...

I'll still play it but they better well have a DAMN fine product..

Might be bogus. ATI is probably ready to crucify Gabe Newell.

There wouldn't be a tree large or strong enough to hold his fat arse.

A tree would be an unlikely choice as it could spark violent outcries from GreenPeace. Instead the proposed plan is to ship him to France, the land of failure and crucify his more than substantial arse onto the Eifel Tower.

Now that they've released the 2.00 patch Savage is looking pretty sweet.

Amazon has it for $29.99. (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00008JOLZ/qid=1074611784//ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i0_xgl63/104-7810578-6523952?v=glance&s=videogames&n=507846)

I'd say it's worth it.

You can't technically crucify him on the Eiffel tower, it's not a cross. We could impale him there though, sounds fun.

I disagree.

I see more than enough cross's on the Eiffel tower.:D It is more then good enough for him.



Any ways, I am not surprised at the delay. I feel sick after all that hype'n'bs about HL2. Right now HL2 needs to lie low and Valve needs to fire their PR people and get some serious work done. All of a sudden Doom 3 looks a lot more promising right now.


As for game suggestions, try Prince of Persia (that is if you don't all ready have it.)

Yeah, but isn't it mult-player only? I need a good single-player game. :(

**** you Valve! :mad:

I definetely shouldn't be spending money for upgrades though... *sigh* I know I'm gonna end up rebuilding my system again around that time.

I'm sick and tired of this. I'm gonna go cash in my HL2 preorder and put the money somewhere else. Doom 3 and HL2 are too far away for me to care, atm.

Once HL2 comes out, I'm guessing that it's going to be a sweet game, but until then, I have bills to pay.

Seriously though. Don't panic, not yet. :D

Agreed.
Can't wait for UT2004, it's gonna rock so hard. ;)

And tomorrow we get to try the FarCry single player demo.

A quote from "Almost Famous": It's all happening!

Sure is. :cool:
