    argh is this definite? I thought it'd be delayed but I thought they'd try to cash in on the christmas sales.

    Strange they have put it back so many time but i am sure it will be worth the wait , as the advert says "Good thing come to those who wait"

    hmm dissapointing of course but valve should be given the time to finish this properly. We can blame the tarts in marketting for the "never gona happen september release date". And as Nemeliza says it will give nvidia a chance to sort out their cards drivers and such. I have a tnt2 right now (dont laugh ) and am planning an uprgrade (probably 9600pro) but i was gona get a 5600ultra and it turns out that would have been a bad move. Hope they can get this sorted as the idea of owning game specific hardware is not appealing

    lol Valve look to be not only attempting to alienate their entire fan base but force them into open warfare against them

    Subject: A couple quick questions.


    Firstly, greetings and salutations, ye god of the Cult of Half-Life 2. I'm
    well aware that it's crunch time and then some over there at Valve, hence,
    why these are QUICK questions

    1: How is it that you answer some folks' emails almost instantly? Sheer dumb
    luck that they happen to catch you in a slow moment and checking your
    e-mail? Or perhaps, something more... :minous thunder::

    Because my secret masters in the sky tell me I need to respond to those
    specific messages. And don't forget to qwertzinrdl the granstaafl.

    2: The date "February 3rd" and its numerous misspellings seems to have
    cropped up as the doubters' latest and by far most popular 'real release
    date.' Do you have any knowledge of official statements that would lead to
    that conclusion, or was it just the most popular speculation that you will
    be laughing heartily at come September 30th?

    "I have never said any date other than September 30th."

    Thank you in advance for your time and patience, and keep up the fantastic
    work. If it is of any service, I'll see what I can do about importing some
    excellent coffee for you guys, I'm guess you hard working peoples will
    probably be needing it

    - Chazz


    I can see it getting pushed to nov maybe,
    but not 02/04 as that will be around the time d3
    will be coming out, and for commercial reasons
    I can,t see hl2 and d3 coming out around the same time.

    I Reckon millions are w8ting for hl2, I havnt played
    a single player fps in a couple of months....looking forward
    to some lights off action with hl2

    Anyways will know if it is rel 30sept if it goes Gold
    by this Monday...If that happens...then sept 30th
    will be the rel date.
