Posted: Tue Aug 31, 2004 11:06 am Post subject: No Half Life 2 review next issue

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Despite what it says on the "Next Month" page in #104, we will not be reviewing Half Life 2 in #105.

At the time of going to print a review did look likely to happen, but subsequent events have rendered it impossible. The following issue - #106 - should carry the eagerly anticipated PCPP review.

However we do have an unexpected treat for you in #105. I can't reveal any more, save to say it's BIG news.

The preload is all material shaders, textures. And HL2 will most likely go gold at the end of CS:S beta. Or at least thats when the RC is going to vivendi. Although I can totally understand everyone being very negative and jaded about it.

Heh, wouldn't suprise me if Vivendi is testing the RC right now. It's usually not a good idea for companies to announce when they send out RCs though, otherwise their info page would be filled with something like:

"Today we sent out a new RC
"it was rejected"
"Today we sent out another RC"
"the RC has been rejected"

etc. for about, oh, 5 months

when did that issue hit newsstands? Because computer gaming magazine had a doom3 review also and I've had that since wed of last week. In the review, they said that they had to go to ID software's studio and play it on their machines to protect against a possible "breach". HAHAHA That sure paid off!
