Depends what year you're talking about
I really hope it does come out in feb though, If they delay it much longer then i honestly think theyll lose some of the wow factor that they got when people first saw screenshots of the game, I guess the original half-life suffered quite a few delays too though and that turned out ok
Least its given me a bit more time to save for the inevitable hardware upgrade hl2 is going to need.
I know about DNF... its a shame, Im sure so many people were looking forward to it. The developers IMO have completely lost the plot. Instead of releasing it, they have followed the cycle of adding a new feature / technology, then seeing something new come out, then adding that, then.... you get the picture. Means that when it does come out it will either be awful (think Daikatana) because it has been over-hyped or it won't come out at all
HL2 is gonna be good.... wonder what the out-the-box MP will be like, or if we will have to wait for mods for great MP?
Just got a new computer which I hope will be able to run the game in all of it's detail.
And I'm really looking forward to playing the game since the graphics look amazing and the storyline sounds interesting.
I'd say that realisticly sometime between the end of Febuary and April will see its release. They have had long enough to sort out any security issues because of the leak, and long enough to finish the game itself. We can only hope that its the end of Feb, and all indulge in some qaulity (hopefully) gaming.
I only care about what it offers in mp really. I don't care how good it looks or sounds tbh. If it's cs2, don't think i'll bother. Good teamplay potential, smooth mp net code, good weps and well thought out comms system would be nice.
