Half-Life 2 Trailer

IGN's Half-Life 2 Media Page now offers a link to a Half-Life 2 teaser (the link was broken for a bit after being posted, but seems to work properly now). The 11.9 MB movie is in QuickTime format. There are also Half-Life 2 Impressions on GameSpot with a detailed rundown on what they saw, concluding with: "Frankly, we were blown away by what we saw of Half-Life 2 here, and though this was a rolling demo (albeit of real-time gameplay), Valve proceeded to demonstrate the bug bait level in action, which looked just as good as in the rolling demo. Based on the 25-minute Half-Life 2 demo, we can say with reasonable certainty that this is definitely a game worth looking forward to."

I have been on vacation and was reading posts about warez, especially people complaining about software prices... $50 IS volume pricing in the software world. Consumer end software for $50 bucks a pop is not worth complaining about, especially not to the point of stealing software. $20 a CD too much for you? Eat your own shit and die, are any of you in a band? Most (note: most) (repeat: most) bands work harder lives than any of you will ever know for something they feel impassioned about, and NONE of you should have a thing to say about a $20 piece of music. If you don't like all the songs, I can bet you like what you hear on the radio, and if tha tis what you want to buy LOOK FOR THE FUCKING SINGLE. Stealing from record executives is a good idea, from bands, you can go to hell. I develop software, an average product takes about 8 months to go from programmer to usable client end software. Cost per unit for one year? $5000. I realize the market is a very specific one, but one hundredth of the size of the video game market? I don't think so.
And while you are on the subject of being oh so opposed to stealing, where are the complaints about your respective governments? From the US and Canada, here are two good contemporary examples: The Pentagon cannot account for over ONE BILLION of YOUR DOLLARS. ONE BILLION. ONE BILLION. That is a shitload of money, and folks, you have bigger fish to fry than some pimply little fuck sitting in his parents office downloading software. It doesn't even affect you! Go chastise your "elected" leaders! LEave that stupid dork alone! For Canadians, your stupid prime minister just spent $ 10 million to influence the rolling stones to come to Toronto! If you pay taxes, you just spent about $1 on the rolling stones, NOT EVEN IN YOUR CITY!!! YES YES YES!!!! Chastise that ignorant dictator before worrying about some nerd...
One more thing: LEAVE XOMBIE ALONE! If you have no intelligent rebuttals other than "Leave doom 3 alone, ID ARE GODS!!!!" or some other base comment, DON't TYPE IT! If you wish to argue a point, ARGUE THE FUCKING POINT! You are not reading this forum because of Xombie, if you are you are an idiot, you are here for intelligent discussion/questions about half-life 2...

 
STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE, GET OUT OF THAT BED AND GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR, GET OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE: GET DOWN ON THE CEMENT, I DONT CARE IF YOU'RE NUDE, GET DOWN ON THE CEMENT, I DON'T CARE IF ITS FREEZING! WHERES THE DRUGS, WE KNOW YOU GOT THE DRU
