Default Valve Starting a HL2 Media Frenzy (again)

Valve is at it again, they seem to be starting to hype up HL2.

This week, we saw them release 3 new Bink videos. Oddly enough, they were not as of the same resolution of the others.

Now, they have been giving out press kits to game magazines, the magazine in the UK said they were allowed to play the game. Dose this mean it will be release soon?

Sounds good to me, but we'll have to wait and see when the final release date is going to be. I'm still learning how to do stuff in the XSI editor, so I hope they don't release the game TOO soon!

Valve needs to fire their PR agent... before I kill him... o_O

They should spend the money on getting the game to work first. With their track record on releasing games on time I am really hyped up <sarcasm>

Yeah, CZ was the biggist launch joke ever.

First of all, it was delayed for years,

Then it was leaked on the net.

Next they hold a launch party for it, First ever paper launch of a game

Then its released for a rediculous price, and even though they had aroudn 6 months to make the game better, its the exact same thing that was leaked a long time ago.

So, they are not 'recodieng' hl2 or makeing it better, they are probly just finishing it, or waiting.

I highly doubt that, considering how incomplete the leaked version of HL2 from last year was, unless they're planning on releasing the game with 5 maps and floating developer notes everywhere. There was a very large number of incomplete or missing features in the code (was there even any real multiplayer code in it?), so it's obvious they were still adding many things to the game when it was leaked. But I'm not sure what you mean when you say they aren't making it better and that they're just finishing it up...based on how the Doom 3 alpha looked 2 years ago, you could say that ID has been sitting on their asses for the last 2 years making maps for an already complete engine, couldn't you? Not to mention if even half the current rumors about what's being added to Half-life 2 are true, then Valve has apperently been very busy (I don't even think they actually did anything for the development of CZ, they just handed it off to other companies and "published" it themselves). Odd that you made this thread seemingly to make fun of Valve, though...

Don't believe any of their lies... HL2 is a myth!

Nothing less and nothing more. HL2 is just a bogus story created to scare off littel gamers.

"Don't get too excited about that game, Ted, it might just be another HL2".


He he.

hmm it seems like now that the nv40 is close to launch then all of a sudden half life 2 jumps back into the news and "may" be launched soon.
