The last time I asked a Gamestop employee about release dates, he laughed at me and told me to wait. Alas, this takes away the excuse I almost used to beat to bloody unconsciousness with my shoe.

But thanks for clearing it up!

Maybe we'll luck up & Valve through a mp demo out as severance for not telling us in a timely matter

Never-the-less, I highly recommend you guys take a break from the HL2 craze & snag a copy of HALO, liked it on XBOX, love it on PC

well i bought and played blue shift recently... and I am quite amazed @ the level of interaction to solve many of the puzzles you have to have...

bought it for $5.00 so no biggie

finished it in one night so not really that long but quite entertaining...

I kept thinking to myself... wow... they really were ahead of the curve... even by today's standards their engine is quite outstanding...

i like to mess with EB guys and ask them things they have clue about..

"whats the difference between soul calibur on all the consoles".. i make them squirm

one guy once said his favourite game of all time was Fifa 2002 ?!

I get a plethora of ads for stores like Circuit City, Best Buy, etc. every Sunday. They always advertise the big releases and say "AVAILABLE SUCH AND SUCH DATE" on the cover, big enough for anyone to notice. I didn't even see a single mention of HL2 in either of them.

Uhh...except they TOTALLY overhauled the multi-player and added in new weapons, vehicles, and levels. The only thing that's exactly the same is the single-player campiegn mode. Personally, I've played Halo to death on Xbox already, but I might pick up Halo PC when it comes down in price a bit. Or I guess I could wait until Halo 2...

I was implying to peeps who neither own an XBox nor have beat the game, such as myself

That's the problem with Halo PC. Think about it. Had the sequel not be delayed (thank God and btw is it not a bit suspicious?) PC gamers would be faced with the ridiculous situation of finally getting Halo PC at almost the same period that X-Box players would get Halo 2

Of course i like the game, but after waiting for its PC release for so long, i feel cheated by Microsoft delaying it that much. I thought consoles existed for a reason (everybody would have the same hardware, thus performance and no one would be whining about it) instead, they now only exist in order to snatch "exclusive" titles from the PC and blackmail gamers to either buy the console (broadly speaking) or forget about it. It stinks. I won't buy Halo PC for that reason.

Plus that "Master Chief" thingy, reminds me of sth, must have been stolen for sure (scratches head). Oh well, to get back to the point, i don't think that we'll see H-L 2 anytime soon, hopefully a SP demo maybe (although i'd love it if they could come up with an announcement like "btw dudes, did we mention that it's in the shops?")
