You know, I bet November 9th and November 16th will be the most popular sick-days of the year. Yeesh, 3 huge games that have large numbers of rabit fans releasing within 2 weeks of eachother...maybe it's a conspiracy by terrorists to weaken our economy by sabatoging our workforce!

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'm catching a cold...*cough*

I dont think HL2 will be one of those games you have to reserve @ a store. I know it will be good, but nothing to get worried about. PC gaming isn't all that popular anymore...I bet I can just walk into any store and grab it on release.

Actually, I don't think any game would really be hard to pick up off the store shelf without a reserve. Maybe some of the lesser-known ones like Katamari Damacy, but all the major releases like GTA:SA, Halo 2, and Half-life 2 will have so many copies sent out to stores that they're almost guaronteed to meet demand. I remember when my friend called me up when I was working at Bestbuy right after GTA:VC was released asking if we still had the game or if it was sold out, he sounded suprised when I told him we had several dozen stacks of it in the back warehouse

Why is the time given in GMT +1? Anyway, thats Denmarks timezone, and since California is GMT -8, it will indeed be a 00:00 release in CA. Lucky bastards! I'm in school at 09:00... Or am I??

Sure, give it up buddy. The HL2 release date is not a "real" holiday

As soon as EB calls me, I think I'll run into the bathroom, make a few wretching noises, then excuse myself for the next two days.
