Default No review of HL2 in the coming issue of PcGamer

Apparently several sources on the australian version of pcgamer's forums, including editors, have stated the review has been held back...this seems to make it obvious that the next issue of pc gamer will also lack the review. If you remember, similar events took place with doom 3. They touted they had an earth shattering review, only to say it was being held back a month, then the following month ( 2 months after the original announcement) they had the doom 3 review. I'm guessing this will be the same type of situation....so it looks like the waiting continues. I have a $50 dollar bet with a friend that it doesnt ship in 04.

i think you are all wrong. =P

On another related note

Has anyone with a 2 gighz+ or higher cpu and a 6800gt+ noticed that regardless of resolution and aa/af settings you seem to get the same frames in cs:s when playing dust?

No, that's just a great PR team making you think that you have a game installed. I don't think you can really call textures a "game".

Hehe, the HL2 review has been delayed.

I actually think the game will be done in the next few months, if for no other reason than simply because now they're under pressure to actually finish the game before someone figures out how to crack the content that they put out for the preload and starts assembling the game from it . Even if it's just some of the lesser-important content, some of it could still possibly be used with the old Alpha build. Wonder if they were smart enough to not include the maps in the pre-load...

Oh, and presumably they wouldn't have allowed the pre-load unless the game was at least FAIRLY close to release. I mean, why let people pre-load parts of the game if it's still months away from release?
