Default Re: hl2 delayed to 11/1

who knows...since lombardi said this fall..november makes sense I guess since winter doesnt start until dec. 23rd or around there. Just tired of waiting and waiting, what also ticks me off about it coming in november is, it will probably scare away more developers and make even more delays. Medal of honor pacific assault has been constantly delayed since last year....they finally said this november...but something tells me thats gona change again now. THQ must of had some insider info on HL2s release-now THAT makes sense for delaying their game until Q1 05, rather than the Halo 2 excuse they gave. Vampires Masquerde was also suppose to be out in oct. but it cant be released until after HL2, read tons of interviews with developers stating this....so thats another push back....valve is getting good here, not only do they keep pushing their game back, they've found a way to push everyones games back-way to ruin an industry valve! =/ (Based on the assumption these companies will hold off now)

actually, I don't think I mind if it comes out late anymore, especially since i've been waiting so long with my ATI Voucher.. I'll be able to play Sims 3 and brush up on ut2k4 skills again in the meantime..

Feel bad for the people that paid for the game in full already though. (although you can argue, in a way, I did too)

No... they will give some lame excuse that they meant it would preload at the end of fall and be released in winter (of course then they will just delay it again because Valve couldn't actually RELEASE anything :\).

Gamestop /Ebworld ..retailers ..usually release dates are very accurate ,because they come from the Publishers.. specially when the game is close to be released. but im not sure anymore with Hl2. accoding with Bestbuy Hl2 will be released on Aug 26 2004 ,thats is next week.. but still there is no gold announcement !!! which usually take 3-4 weeks from GOld to retail. so if the game is finished today.. August 18 -04 ,its very unlikely that it will be at retail on Sept 01.. unless valve plans are to release it first by steam. !! and weeks later in retail. my prediction is end Sept/early oct for the game to be available in retail . but watch carefully the dates at EBworld.com. if they update their dates by the end of this weekend and no gold announcement of valve then its because the game is indeed delayed.

Yeah, but by the same token, the publishers are also full of crap a lot of the time. It's not up to them when it ships, it's up to the game being done and ready.

Ah...these delays bring back such fond memories of Tiberian Sun. And we all know how great that game was...

He added an edit saying it was back to 9/1 and that it might have been a glitch not too long after posting the initial one or did you just miss that.

Here ya go...so you don't miss it this time:

edit: might have been a temporary glitch? back to 9/1 now.

I read the intial post and that was NOT what I was referring to. I was responding to the 25+ other posts that continued on with the 11/1 bashing.

Want me to highlight all of those who continued on after the intial post?

The only resion why he now says 9/1 is because I just called him up saying that I was from Crispy-Cream Donuts and said "If you get the game out before 9/2 2004 then we will give you a free supply of Donuts for a year".... hehe sucker....
