which mag is that, pc gamer? that does say sept 22 right? that isn't from last september is it? if they posted it in a mag they wouldnt delay it would they?

ahh, but sadly even the mag is legit valve has drained all my trust, so until i put the cd in an make sure that it works, im gonna remain a skeptic.

Acording to the aussie mag pc powerplay.. this could have already been posted.. since i got the mag 5 days after it was ment to come out.. not my fault.. was a delay of the mag..

anyway this is what they say the next issue will have..

they have a big picture of the hl2 symbol & under it, it says its done.. now the mag comes out on the 22nd of september.. seems pretty soon.. so im thinking the game could be coming out in australia at the end of september? & they want to get the mag out befor its at the store's? i dunno. but there is for sure something coming in the next pc powerplay mag.. could be a review, could be a preview.. time will tell...

god i hope so

I'll drop by barnes and noble this week adn have a look through the game mags and see if they have any info on hl2 and release :)

from what I have read many have already kinda had hands on experience with the latest build but I don't tihnk its fair to draw conclusions given last years interesting developments...

I think it could be a good photochop, mainly the Doom3 disks/HL2 disk shot made me totaly paranoid about that stuff.

And secondly, i know valve strives to copy Id, but useing the exact same campain as Id seems werid and then this

Id's campain was on the premice "We said it will be done when its done, ITS DONE"

with valve they can only say "We said it was done a few times now, but ITS DONE kinda, maybe, we hope"

So, i think its a photochop however

I WANT TO BELIVE :D

Also that is not valves ad. That is pcpowerplays ad for their next magazine :)

A friend of mine at work who makes knives for a hobby told me that he was sending some pictures to somebody who made games. I guess I should have asked him a few questions, as I never dreamed it was Valve/Gabe.

Update: he's post #17 in that thread. I'll have to ask him about it tomorrow. I'd forgotten that Gabe collected knives.

Oh come on. I came in here expecting something earth shattering, but this doesn't even come close to the brilliance of sliced bread. Try next time, please.

I can't promise anything other than a free copy of the game and my gratitude, and the undying fame of being to point out a hot glowy piece of metal to your children and say "that's MY hot glowy piece of metal."

/me goes to glow some metal :nanahump:

your about 25 days to late =P

Seriously though. that may be an ad for a review or for the games release date. Who knows

Trust noone suspect everyone (duel) at least when it comes to valve games.

well last pcgamer said " we have a HUGE hands on exclusive" doom 3 was nothing compared to this....some were expecting it to be a HL2 review-others, more skeptical, like myself, figured it was sims 2.....who knows....seems too early to get a copy of pcgamer...i have a subscription and it usually doesnt come in till the 2nd week of the month.

I saw this at the back of last month's issue and immediately thought "HL2 is done!" and they had a review. I think it's the only thing that is close in magnitude to Doom 3 right now and the only thing on many gamers minds.

That would be nice for me if it's really released on the 22nd. I took a week off from work hoping it would come out around then. Odd though, the 22nd is a wednsday...they usually release on a tuesday don;t they?
Of course, if they wanna release it earlier, fine by me.

edit, my bad! Thought they were talking about hl2!

review or no review-i still say the game wont be out before nov. and thats if were lucky. And I wont take much into any magazine review-they tend to kiss some major booty when they get exclusives.....doom 3 got a 94% that's 103% more than it deserves in my book.

If PC Gamer has become corrupted, who else are we to trust for opinions, short of buying it ourselves?

If Gabe and company are still looking for textures for HL2 as of early August I highly doubt that the game will be released in September. My best guess would be sometime in November. (omg)

Ah yes, good old Pc Powerplay. The Australian Gaming magazine that has only been corrupted by Ati, nothing else. (funnily enough though, they unofficially perfer the 6800U). Actually i just found out why PC Powerplay has the HL2 review next month (which means it would have been performed already, and they've played the full version). It's because ATi Australia has bought rights into Hyper (the people that own PCPP.
