I think all these delays have crossed the line from mere conincidence to evil omen. I'll wait a few days, and see what kinds of monsters appear on the computer before even considering to buy it.

I've never been a huge Half-life player, but I'll probably buy this game when it comes out (whenver that is) but at the rate they're going, you have to wonder if it's even going to look that impressive anymore by the time that happens?

It already doesn't look that great compared to most other games coming out (that is, games that are actually released) :\.

I doubt this will effect the release date, they would rather make money now, then sue eachother over it later.

I have a feeling that if it comes down to it valve will completly breach their contract and release on steam only. Vivendi can only push so hard, only delay so long before valves lawyers can find a loop-hole and let the dogs out its cage.

My worry isn't it being 2005, its vivendi trying to stall the rc/gold like they did on cs:cz except till the holiday season. I think after all this is over people will find out alot about vivendi's business practices in terms of strong arming developers. From trying to force developers into giving up their IP, to trying to find loop holes in their contracts to take the IP from them. To force releases, forced delays, and so forth. And one wonders why a publisher with a list of all star developers, is having bad finance issues. Well peep the management.

So you don't think that developers are allowed to own their own games? There are positives and negatives to IP.

"It is apparently seeking the court's assistance in compelling Valve not to use Steam as an avenue of distribution."

Dont see why Vu doest own halflife theyve did most the work since Cs 1.2 or earlier and who ever is left from the original Cs squad in Vu. They even said theyed hand over th erights to the whole halflife thing as HL2 was going gold ?
Im pretty sure valve had nothing more to do with owning the name halflife from the start.
