Hrmph, I bet they're waiting a few more years until EVERYONE has a gaming rig that can run HL flawlessly. I'm sure Valve is doing this to stamp out any concerns regarding whether or not you can run HL2 on your PC or not. In 5 years time, I'm sure everyone will be able to play this game the way it's meant to be played. Valve is just looking out for us. Doom 5 and Final Fantasy XXXIII will be released before this game comes out, heh.

Even if the E-mail were a fake, wouldn't the announcement of the HL-2 steam upload mean it's soon to be released?.

EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't realize it was only a partial download.
