It seems HL2 is just about ready. The gold release is out this Monday, so a full release can't be that far off.

Who's got it on pre-order? Smile

Heh, seems that this was a hoax. Someone managed to guess Gabe Newell's forums password and posted the message on his behalf.

The fact that they are preloading via Steam does, however, indicate that we are in the propinquity of launch.

Got the new PC Gamer yesterday. There's a review of Half Life 2 in it (and it's on the cover).

To say they were impressed is a bit of an understatement - they gave it 96%.

However, they still have the release date down as Autumn........although they don't mention which year Rolling Eyes

The current release date is sometime in November, however this is not cast in stone (will it ever be). I put a news item on the site the other day regarding the Valve/Vivendi saga...

And now we also have a glowing Edge review, and:
10/10
for only the 5th time in Edge's history Smile

I'm starting to get excited.......probably wothwhile pre-ordering this to ensure I get a copy.

Does anyone know if this will be more or less demanding than Doom3?
I've heard it runs better on ATI hardware than Doom 3 does.

I don't think it'l be any more demanding than Doom 3, although the more hardware you can throw at it the better.

We've also go t Model of Honour : Pacific Assault to look forward to the week before HL2. Shouldn't be a bad month, and hopefully most ppl will have copies of these games well in time for the next LAN in Bob's cellar (which is looking pretty awesome, I have to say)
