    Offical Half Life II Gaming Discussion Thread. **Twazillions of Spoilers No Doubt**

    Ok lads, to pre-empt the amount of threads we are going to get on this game, I’ve made this official Half Life II gameplay discussion thread.

    Mainly for 2 reasons: firstly to stop the entire front page getting filled with them, stopping anyone who wants to actually talk about anything else being able to (some very strange people about), but also to keep the dreaded *spoilers* in one place.

    So, for all game play discussion of Half Life II (How do I beat this, Where do I find that, etc) post it in here. If you just want to talk about the game in general (pleased, disappointed, impressed, whatever) or have a technical issue (wont run, Steam, what’s that? Etc) then feel free to start a new thread.

    We should be able to read the gaming forum without having the gaming experience spoiled by the one kid who got up at 3am to complete the game before school, who then posts telling us that the last boss is Bowser from the Mario games, and Gordon turns out to be G-Man all along.

    So, keep it all in here please. Anyone who reads this and then complains about spoilers can be safely ignored. (And pointed at whilst laughing)

    Oh, and two brief final points:

    1) No, I haven’t got the game yet; I’m just jumping the gun, getting ready for the expected flood of posting once we are all blasting away on the 16th.

    2) Any mention, discussion or even slightest hint about warez copies of this game, where to get them, or any discussion on the subject will be removed immediately, along with the poster. We don’t want to get anyone into trouble. Thanks all.



    Not long now… let’s hope it was worth the wait.

    As I said, if you just want to talk about the game being good, or whatever, feel free, but we'll keep all gameplay discussion in here, once we are actually playing the game, complete with spoiler warning and someone who can edit spoilers out (me! ) keeping an eye out.

    So Myth, will you get to play it before us English? Who gets to the morning of the 16th first?

    You shouldn't get a warez copy of HL2 anyway!

    There was a spoiler on the steam forums saying "i've got it, i played it at the start, you walk through a passage next to trains and up to some guards, that's as far as i got" XD! That little scene was the opening scene on one of the vids, very nice spoiler that

    Okay, as Vaul ain't about I'LL say it for him.

    DON'T MENTION OR DISCUSS WAREZ. DON'T EVEN HINT AT THEM.

    Now, anyone wanting a ban can quite happily complain afterwards that their ban was unfair as they didn't say they were ACTUALLY using warez etc.

    Sorry to say, you'll not be being banned for discussing warez, but for blatantly ignoring a Mod's request.

    Vaul has asked for no warez discussions, so DON'T DO IT.

    It's not hard to follow now, is it?

    This is your last warning and is not open to discussion OR negotiation.

    And to bring the thread back on topic....

    12 hours!!!!
