Default Re: Half-Life 2 RC shipped out to Vivendi

Yep...like I said...next week we'll be reading that Vivendi rejected the RC. I can count on one hand-how many games actually went gold after 1 RC.

No offense but a rejected rc doesn't have to be completely remade. It would be one or 2 or more silly bugs that would just have to be tracked. But thank god for the css beta. A very high amount of the show stopper crashing bugs isnide the source engine are gone. So in the end if a rc is rejected it would probably just take a day or 2 tops to fix the issues. Which would probably be minor scripting errors. The main crash left is a resolution issue, which is probably fixed on valves side.

In that count did you include half life 1? =)

Software designers release updates and information constantly. There's nothing special about what HL2 is doing, except for the advertising, but that is common to all video games. The difference is Visual C++ doesn't have people hanging onto everything microsoft mentions, even passingly, about the next version. The only reason there is so much on here about HL 2 is because you people are freaking obsessed and spazz out every time some trivial offhand announcment is made, of which any other software would generate no more than a shrug.

LMAO.. with HL2's gossip track record, I don't believe anything unless its published directly from the Valve or Vivendi, thru their authorized channels..

Actually, they haven't officially said anything about the release candidate: this information was extracted by users on the Half-life forums. So it's kinda pointless telling them to shut up when they haven't said anything.
