It seems that all 9600XT cards are now NOT bundled with HL2, i feel that its a bad sign.

It could mean that HL2 really is gonna be a long time.

I very strongly doubt it will be released before September 1st 2004. I think December 1st 2004 is quite likely, actually . But where's the HL2 Benchmark? As far as I can tell, Valve are still set to release it in September 2003... but I was there, and I didn't see it

I'd feel kind of bad if developers using the HL2 engine are just waiting for HL2
before they can release their game. I wonder if games like vampire the masquarade bloodlines could be finished but just waiting.

Two words: "Its Valve"

..okay, technically its three. But anyway, a valve game delayed? *shock* oh noes!!111... you can't be serious??? since when was any game released by valve ever delayed??? ... oh yeah, only EVERY game released by valve EVAR!.

Oh yeah, and when Sept 2004 arrives... guess what? the game will be delayed again for a few more months.

Valve delays can be plotted as a curve. First the game is delayed by a year, then again by 6 months, then again by 3 months, then 1 months, then 2 weeks, then 1 week, then one weekend and then finally the game is released. Patches follow a similar though smaller scale delay schedule.

Following this theory, which I call "Dave's L33T Valve Delay Hypothesis" I predict the following....

Sept 2004 released delayed by 6 months
March 2005 release delayed by 3 months
June 2005 release delayed by 1 month
July 2005 release delayed by 2 weeks, then 1 week, then 1 weekend

Predicted release date: _Last week of July 2005_

...I vote DNF for best game of 2004

It seems more likely that it will finish then HLS or D3....

Interesting thing I heared over at one of the dnf sites (can recall which one, could be the developers), it appeares that all previous screens are null and void due to the amout of improvement's to the game visuals.

Take this one with a Huge chunk of morton water softener block, but according to the March pcgamer release dates. Doom 3 will be in Your lap in April. H2 nowhere in sight.

Thumbs down

Don't know about you, but i think Men will step in Mars before HL2 is finished !!!
Almost sure of that,lol.

HL2 TF2 should be avaiable in stores right in time to watch the Moon when terraformed, and nVidia will finally win the ATi/nV battle as soon as we can "walk" in Space!
( altough i'm starting to think NV40 will be a good card indeed, i guess only time will tell. )

Forget about Duke Nukem Forever... that will take forever, our star system will be erased by then and people will live in stars to cut expenses with the ( by then ) new expensive light systems! Star energy will power computers by then and AI will be good enough to finish the game by itself.
We'll certainly be dust by then.

After all this bs and rumours about last year, this year and probaly the next one, i'm mad with Valve !
This HL2 voucher is looking more and more like a joke!

Next time Valve announces a new game, i won't even bother to see it until it's finished, reviewed and in retail.
Valve is a joke, so is their Steam "service??!!??" !!!
I'm really mad about Valve !
