    they just keep on pushing the the HL2 date back further and further.

    gamestop has it releasing at 02/02/04. this really chaps my butt.
    i could live with 09/30/03 and then 11/11/03 from ebgames, this is really not enouraging me to stick with this title. especially with all the stream sh/t thats coming up. IMHO, i hope its not going to be another Duke Nukem Forever or Team Fortress 2.

    It will definately NOT be another TF2 or Duke Nukem. This game is too huge to just not come out. They know how anticipated this game is, and if they are postponing it, it's probably for a good reason. I would rather it take longer than have them release a game full of bugs.

    Gamestop and Ebgames are both a great at misinformation and there has been a ton of speculated release dates for HL2. Supposedly the reason for the pushed back to next year date at gamestop is, because until they have a firm date they don't want people getting upset at them posting a closer date and getting disappointed if the game isn't in stores by that time.

    I have yet to see Valve confrim a date change and on the samehand they have not denied a date change. Like they have yet to confrim or denie that HL2 will be released on steam before it will hit stores. It seems likes all that these rumors have done is cause a lot more hype to surround the game and I think that's how Valve and Vivendi wants it.

    Anyways if it hits stores on the 30th sweet if not meh it will come out before the end of the year. All I was concerned with was having the cash to spare for this game.

    Well that pisses me off becasue I just spent $2000 on a new computer, partly so i would have something fast to run HL2. Im sure my computer will still run it great but i could have saved some money or got something better if id known HL2 was going to be delayed and spent the money closer to its new release date.

    Duke Nukem was huge and it had a large following for a while, people eagerly awaiting the release, although now thats pretty much goneburger.

    Not that i'm saying HL2 is gonna be like that. I hope that it isn't, as i REALLY enjoyed the first one, and am looking forward to it!

    And i agree, if they take a bit (emphasis on "a bit", not "a lot") longer and fix all the bugs in it then kudos to them. But again as games in the past have shown, this isn't always the case.

    ditto. I was really looking forward to HL2, but Halo will do for "my new game" for now. I can't wait for massive OL team matches.
