*doh*
"Live Shakey Cam Footage". Oh well, better than nothing I guess. But since I only have an Nvidia card, does that mean the video will run 40% slower than it would if I had an ATI card . I'm debating downloading these though, not only because I'm on 56k, but because I'm worried about spoiling the game even more for myself (damn friend with his downloaded Alpha copy, it was just so tempting!).

But, what the heck is D.O.G.? They seem to be mentioning him/her/it a lot at those forums.

Honestly I thought these were pretty crap. none of them are fullscreen, and are bad quality with no sound.

Well, that's what you get for clicking "shakeycam" footage

Also what they actually showed was incomplete, there were quite a few placeholder graphics and incomplete animations in some of these "new" scenes, so it'll probably look quite different in the final version anyway.

Shaky cam or not, it made the hibernating HL2 hype to wake up.
Thx for the link.

/me starts praying that a summer release will actually come true.

Im pritty sure the slowdown is being caused by the cpu because of the physcis engine, same thing happens in painkiller and farcry and max payne 2 heh.

id software did brag that their physics engine is much more efficent than others!

HL2 uses the same physics as Painkiller and MP2.
