64-Bit Half-Life 2 Will Return

A thread on the Steam Users' Forums discusses the recent disappearance of the 64-bit version of Half-Life 2, which went missing at the beginning of this month with no explanation. This left users unable to load saved games in progress, and those who contacted Steam support were told the 64-bit version is no longer available and got instructions how to enable cheat codes to get back to the chapter they were playing in the 32-bit version. It took a while for us to get a statement about this from Valve, who now confirm the 64-bit version has been pulled, but do not explain why. They do, however, offer reassurances that it will return, though at this time there is no estimate as to when that will happen.

Much like every other touted advance in gaming I recall when all the devs were crowing about how important it was to get the 64 bit version of Vista to take advantage of 64 bit processing. Well, much like almost every other claim, that hasn't come to any meaningful fruition has it? That's why with every new advance I'm skeptical to adopt. Rush out and buy a DX11 card? Why? I'm sure by the time we see industry adopt DX11 across the board we'll be several years and iterations into new cards before that happens. I'm still waiting for them to take advantage of 64 bit.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
