It just confirms what the anon leaker said.

Half-Life 2 was never even close to being done.

The 'Benchmark' Demos that we see videos of, are are how they Wanted the game to be like. EG the sceens were competely scripted.

I do like his comment that he claims alot of the conent is being droped to get the game to ship faster. Compeltey contradicts what Gabe is saying, but i honestly belive Fragmaster over Gabe.

I think they are doing exactly what their PR department wants.

See, they want to reclaim thier whole "delay the game a year, and its so much better" so they coudlnt count on them self delaying the game, so they had to make sure it happens.

So basicly what they did was

Announce Definate Ship Date

Delay Game

Give interview that you dont care about release dates, you just want to make the game as good as it can be, then casualy mention, oh BTW that means we will delay it for as long as we feel fit!

Then eventually release the game.

Also, i Feel the Anon leaker, was someone FROM valve, or someone who WORKED for them under HL2 project.

It was a good read.

"they said sep 30th, but they didn't say sep 30th 2003" was a good one.

What he said.

It's time for the folks at Valve to wake up and smell the java. They've apparently alienated their fellow publishers/development firms (Vivendi, Gearbox) and now they're alienating their fans. I'm still going to buy HL2 when it comes out, but I'll have plenty of other stuff to keep me entertained in the meantime.

Well, hopefully CS 2.0 will come with it, but yeah, We will have a lot of games in the interim.

I agree. Looks like they *really* dropped the ball on this one.
