today gamestop's dates for halflife 2 changed smile.gif
we have still not been sent multiple SKU's, we have 1 at 54.99,

now we've got:

halflife2: december

old date was 2/02/03, because hl was pre-officially delayed [for the second or so time, and posted by magebomb....] on 8-2-03. retailers got dates pulled, so they were set 6 months from that date.


so this means vivendi [in communication with valve] has decided to send out december as the new date.

ill of course post if this changes.

seems to me like the game is going to be finished in november, but steam is going to slow down the release. i mean this in the sense that they get DOS'd all the time, have major bandwidth interviews, said in press releases that theyre scared of steam launch, get hacked, and soforth. so thats my theory, but i wont be surprised to see it out on 11-15.

and im always right when it comes to hl2.




note: cs:cz date is set at 11/03/03. valve said cs:cz will come out first. maybe they're waiting on steam for cs:cz? sadly, theyre still selling cs retail and dont have any reason to rush out cs:cz if they'd like to do a steam launch with it. didnt i read that remedy had finished their job, which is the game development?

But since valve doesn't even tell us wether they have a release date, Vivendi's dates aren't solid either... More or less because they aren't making the damn game.

Uhm, sorry 'bout that... I get cracky when someone revives dead threads.

Eh, do NOT listen to game retailers.
on the first of september I went to my game retailers and asked them when hl2 was due, they said they had gotten phone calls saying it was delayed until next year.
And that was first of september, now all of a sudden some other game retailer is saying it's out in december, it's all m4d I tell j00!

Well, i'm gonna follow up on that one, if you are always right about hl2, then...
Excactly WHAT is the combine? What's going on in the world?

But magebomb, you would earn more votes as governor of california if you stopped being so damn cocky all the time.

Well, on a certain level, those of us that were, in ways had the rights, valve hadn't said anything.
About you being right all the time, WTF? one thing? and yet you make it sound like everyone else was a fanboy.

Ok, since this is sort of off topic and heading into a flame war, I'll let it rest here.

Wasn't there a rule about NO HL2 DELAY/DATE THREADS!?

Just wait until Valve says something. You can't trust retailers.

So Magebomb: shut up.

I think we'll have this game as soon as it's ready. Valve wants us to have it asap. we should have it before xmas if that's what Gabe says. I don't give a shit about the release date anymore, I only want to know when it's going gold. Monday when th3y interview Gabe we might have some idea what's gonna happen. The whole ATI bundle and parties and source leaks are just fluff. I feel good knowing that we'll be rocking HL2 in the near future and that's good enough for me anyway. Magebomb, your fuckin' crazy man. You should go work for planethalflife.

Planethalflife 000000wnz! Also I have some serious doubts we'll be seeing hl2 before christmas, especially now that source is leaked, *sigh*.
