Default Thief goes gold & HL2 News.

Thief DS goes gold:
http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/040505/sfw071_1.html

Also, some HL2 news
http://www.neowin.net/events/index.php?cat=2

The demo was very impressive but was not a touch on the demo by Gabe Newell from Valve. This stole the whole keynote to actually see some new footage from Half Life 2. Again we got the whole video which is approximately 3 minutes long and as soon as we find somewhere with firewire we’ll get it on here asap because it’s one to watch! Gabe claimed the X800 is 40% faster than the GeForce 6800 for Half Life 2 and confirmed that we’ll see Half Life 2 this summer.

Some EB employees told me last August that HL2 was launching in November '03. It was confirmed.

I think Gabe Newell should just shut up about how well his game plays on a ATI card and consentrate on finishing it and letting us play it. That guy is being paid big money to hype ATI, yes it maybe faster but and so what if it is?

Thats kinda like building an engine, saying your done, and you leaving the heads off.

I sure hope Thief will be 1000% better than Deus Ex, because I thought it was kinda jank.

If by cool you mean: smaller levels than the original, a dagger instead of a sword (guards with a sword kick the **** out of you if you're spotted), loading zones, no forward leaning, no old style cutscenes before each mission (rumour has it it's only going to be 5 of them in the whole game), a Splinter Cellish look and feel, automatic doors and blackjack (Garrett raises his blackjack by himself when he approaches a guard) and no editor then yeah, it's gonna be uber-cool. In fact, it's going to be in****ingcredible. No wonder it smells like a Deus Ex 2 experience to some people.
