There is a HL2 forum, but anyway...I'm not going to sleep tonight. I'm staying up and at 2am when it happens, I'll be there. I can't WAIT for this!

I think it's 12PM PST, at least that's when Gamespot is throwing up their HL2 review.

12PM PST TODAY 11/15 is when the review comes out I thought and 12AM PST 11/16 is when the game is officially released.

I was going to stay on my computer all day and wait for the game but then I remembered I need to go to work tonight.

The unlock\release time is 12:01am 11-16-04 PST ....That's 3:01am for me on the east coast....I'm not staying up so I can be half dead when I'm playing, I'm crashing early and getting up around 4:30am starting the JO and plan to be playing by 5:00am..

i have class tonight at 6, getting out at 8:20, with a 20 minute drive. that gives me 3 hours and 20 minutes of sleep, plus about 10 minutes for steam loading time. if i go 110 mph to school tomorrow and it takes me 5 1/2 minutes to get there, i would have to leave home at 7:54:30am, giving me about 7 hours, 44 minutes and 30 seconds for me to get as far as i possibly can and try to beat the game before 6 boring hours at school. or maybe ill just be *sick* tomorrow......

Chances are, you'll be too tired to goto school then.. or if you do, it wouldn't be worth the effort to goto schoool since you won't be able to pay attention.

Just get a good night sleep, wake up, your normal time, don't goto school, and spend the whole day awake and refreshed playing HL2!

Plus I bet there's going ot be some serious "crunch time" right at release with Steam freaking out.
