It turns out HL2fallout's raw PHP files were up for grabs earlier that day wich contained the SQL passes. With those passes, some person has changed Gabes pass and used his account. I'm sorry to say, but it is indeed, fake.

Ha ha we all got PWNED!!!

I'm still pissed off though. What is good is that we'll hear something from Valve next week at least, maybe this'll make them speed up the "debugging" process.

I think it could be real, because valve dosent like to make offical PR's, they like to surround them self by fanboi's who will belive any crap they give out. Thats why they will say its going gold even if it isnt on a fansite, because they can give a lame excuse and they will love it.

That's awesome! Gamespy's got the official "it's not real" e-mail from Valve as well. Oh well, back to waiting indefinitely!

Now we know how the code was stolen... It looks like they had a ftp server set up with login : HL2 and passwd: HL2

Bah. I won't believe HL2 is real until I see the boxes hanging on the shelves ...
