Whatever, i don't REALLY think HL2's getting ready. Perhaps we should be thankful to id for getting these 3 shots. If you look at the timing (3 new screenshots just after rumours of Doom 3 getting ready), it looks as if these screens are screaming "hey, don't forget about us" Looks more like a marketing stunt to me rather than anything else. They look nice though, and i don't give a fig which one comes out first as long as it happens soon.

Was I looking at the right screens? Didn't think they were much cop.. Aliasing all over, and bland. After looking (drooling) over D3 soo much lately, HL2's characters look bland as hell.

Looks good tho. Just I seemed to remember it looking better than that.

I just had my spirit broken by !@#%!@#% Interplay cancelling Fallout 3.

I didn't even hear about Fallout 3 until I heard that Black Isle was getting closed down. Interplay = bastards. I loved Fallout 2, and the screenshots that have been floating around of #3's engine are beautiful - they look exactly like Fallout 2, only in 3D. I'd have bought that game, no questions asked.


Half-Life 2 is going to a ways away. If Doom 3 comes out soon, I'll be playing that for who knows how long. But didn't Carmack say they'd be releasing a technology test, similar to Q3Test? That might be the new stuff that the idsoftware site is talking about. I was under the impression that D3 was still a while off. I still want it to be a while off - I don't like hearing that SP is short. MP is probably going to be awesome, granted, and the mods for this game are going to rule. But I want D3 to be longer than Max Payne 2 - it doesn't have to give me 36-40 hours of play like HL2 is claiming, but I do want something that I can't beat in one day.

That's exactly what I thought the first time I saw them. The one with the Big Blue Building looks fine. Okay. But I wasn't really impressed by the other two. The characters look like... er... HL1 with better textures. Just my opinion. This is rather strange by the way, it seemed to me too that the models in the previous screenshots/videos looked better. Weird.

After the delays started piling up for HL2, I switched from being enthusiastic to being disappointed. At this exact moment in time, I am not even remotely interested in HL2. Infact, it has gone from a must have on my list to more of a "maybe i'll get it if and when I buy the games I want and have any extra cash" type deal. HL2 is SO far on the back burner for me, it's not even funny.

kinda sucks for me... man those months when info was leaking was a great month... i was the first here to post the first half life 2 screenshot.

I was following the Half Life forums, everything was great, until it missed the date, and we hear nothing.

I'm still gonna buy it, no doubt about that, but my interest in HL2 isn't nearly as high as it was.. now its all Doom.. all the time

Was origionally planned to be out late last year, was delayed until the end of this year.

Also, I'm almost suprised that so many people are giving up on Half-life 2. Since when do delays make a game worse? If anything, they make the game BETTER. And doesn't anyone remember Half-life 1? It was all set to ship in late 1997, and then they looked at it and said "nah, not good enough, let's delay it!". A year later, Half-life 1 was released, and it became one of the highest rated games ever. Now what if they released thier buggy, unpollished, boring FPS game when they planned on it? Do you really think we'd have mods like Counter Strike, Natural Selection, or The Specialists if Half-life's release was problematic and overlooked for being nothing new? Hell, it could've ended up like another Daikatana if they released it when they were supposed to.

Sure, I'm not happy about Half-life 2's delay, but as long as the game is good when it's released I'll be happy with it. Who even cares how much the developer pimps it, or how much hype the game is getting? The only thing that matters is the end result, and based on what I've seen Half-life 2 is more then enough to get excited over.
