Default Half-Life2 delayed until "05"...per Gabe

Gabe Newell's quote:
"We've already spent millions into this project, and we're willing to spend as much as we need to make this the best first person experience ever. If that means delaying the game to 2005, we'll do it without any hesitation. If it means sinking another $20 million into the project, we can do it. Rest assured, if we delay the game, it'll be only to blow your socks off even more when it finally releases."

they are truely ridiculous, just release the game already, and if you need to patch the game later then so be it. UT2k3 certainly had enough patches. And God bless Epic/Atari for releasing games in a timely fashion, ie: UT2k4, now if only Valve would get the message.

And man, if I was an exec at ATI I would be so pissed off at Valve right now, they offered all those free HL2 coupons with their video cards. But with HL2's continued delays, the R9800 and R9600XT wont be top notch for it anymore at release. ATI should sue these nuts

if HL2 showed when it was supposed....i guess it would be mind blowing.
Far Cry raised the bar of my expectation really high and i think that STALKER and Doom3 will raise it even more.

if it really comes in 2005... it wont be anything special.

Proof the damn game was not done and it being swiped provided perfect cover. I just hate the fact there were probaly alot who payed $500 for there 9800XT thinking it would be the best think to play this game in a weeks at the latest a few months not a year later and they should atleast provide if anybody those you bought a 9800XT a demo.

He did not say the game is delayed until 2005. He was speaking hypothetically that he would delay it until then if he thought the game needed it to be great.

that's not any better... a delay to 2005 should be considered completely unacceptable. And I really do feel for those folks that bought an R9600 or R9800 thinking they'd be best suited for HL2, that's just not fair

Maybe it will be delayed until 2005, if the X800XT isnt as fast as the 6800U in HL2

ah! I see where you're going with this

That would be interesting if it was all a scandal and ATI pushed it back if the GF6 outperforms them. I wanna beleive ATI would be angry about a delay, but who knows they may be behind it

and oh yeah... mandatory

I'm also thinking Far Cry caught Valve with their proverbial pants down. Valve figured FC was going to be good, but not receive the absolute rave reviews it's been getting from publications and the community alike. Valve could very well want the memory of Far Cry (or even Painkiller and Doom 3) to wear off before releasing HL2.

But by then it will probably be too little too late. Well, it's already too late.

This crap just hurts the gamer.....HL2 will be nothing next year but an "already been there" game. Games like the above mentioned STALKER, D3 and FarCry are and will set bar this spring.
imo....rather than having "the best first person experience ever." (per Gabe) I just want a damn kick-ass, techno-advanced FPS I can play now or soon.
