Half Life 2 has to be soon, surely?

  1. There's been a fair deal of speculation recently that Half Life 2 will have its release date announced soon. I happened to catch a little of some games TV show today on cable and I am sure it mentioned November 17th as a likely day. There was some in game video footage and I must say I was extremely impressed. The show stressed the AI factor, with enemies intelligently co-operating with each other and even trying different tactics when things weren't going their way. Microsoft's Halo2 could be with us at the same time. However, please remember that, as far as HL2 goes, we've heard this before.

    Well the AI being heavily marketed makes sence as thats what made the first game good.

    I forgot about HalfLife 2... By the time it comes out I'll have my copy of World of Warcraft and HL2 will just have to wait til it's $30.

    Besides, Farcry AI is quite impressive, and the "Physics" thing is soooo 2003, They really missed the window.

    I'm more interested in the mods then the game I think, we'll just have to see...

    World of Warcraft comes out 11/16/04 btw...

    Wow, has TheInq finally managed to find some real news?

    Will be interesting to see how this plays out, as I don't really want to use steam to get HL2.

    A very interesting read from gamespot!

    It also puts an interesting spin on the delay of HL2 last year!

    Valve wants to use Steam to distribute HL2. Steam not ready, delay HL2.?
