Half-Life 2 Hits the Newsstands

Well it seems that magazines with Half-Life 2 cover stories have started showing up all around the globe. It should be obvious that as a matter of respecting copyrights, not to mention plain good manners, we won't post any links to unauthorized scans of content, but CGW and PC Gamer were canny enough to send along images of their covers to whet our appetites, or possibly to serve as visual aids if your local shopkeeper doesn't know what magazine you are asking about. If the covers seem familiar, it may be because they use the same pieces of art as the two European magazine covers revealed yesterday.

One might consider it worthwhile to check out the front page of http://www.halflife.org/

i am just laughing my ass off at one "Max Wattenberg" for posting scans he shouldn't be posting, then posting a scan of the cover with his name and address on it!! What? was he just so excited to get the scans posted he NEVER saw the address label, or he did see it but no connection was made because he was mumbling over and over "must. get. scans. posted." classic. 20 says he doesn't get in any trouble.

I'd think the ratchet is the updated spanner. "Spanner" sounds soooo WW2 you know.

I'll verify these facts and more as soon as I get home (assuming I'm lucky enough to get my issue today.)

VERY GOOD NEWS BTW

edit: I won't be doing any of the above until at least tomorrow.

There'll be no hounding today. I've been swamped smacking down jackals as it is. I appreciate the thought, though.

33. HL 2 tidbits from firingsquadposter Apr 22, 2003, 19:03 Elvis
 
from: http://firingsquad.gamers.com/news/newsarticle.asp?searchid=5049

"My Half Life 2 PC Gamer came in the mail today.
Some interesting quick things I've read so far:
- Girl character is not playable
- Same author of story as the first Half Life
- Interactive scripted scenes
- Barney and the G-Man both get face lifts of
sorts
- There will be a Half Life 3
- Half Life 2 comes out Sept. 30
- The Plot: There is a new alien invasion and some
of the Xen aliens are now your allies.
- The game takes place in a Eastern European
city.
- The game supposedly will be able to run on a
DX6-compatible TNT card
- Mentions a more robust mod making expierence
- Cool in-game psychics

Final paragraph in the article that I thought was
kind of cool:
"THE LAST DEMO is over, and i's the scripted
sequence to end all scripted sequences. Or... was
it scripted?
"We're going on this ride with the player," says
Gabe Newell assuringly. "And we intednt to scare
the crap out of you.""

has anyone else had the urge to play through HL1 again?! with the systems some of us have now (though not me :(, we could really crank the visuals - AA, anisotropy, etc.

Yeah, that "magagine" typo is my fault. I was in a rush prepping the image to distribute and made an error in Photoshop. But you could also say that I was subconsciously poking fun at our own policy of copyrighting pics and screens. That being said, I've sent a corrected image for Blues to upload, if they want.

Looks like he's wearing a turtleneck under the old Mark 5. Must help from chafing. And I was hoping he would be sprouting a mullet for HL2.

You just pop on another socket! Surely she's carrying a whole set.

Now that you put it that way it would be easy to add to the game. Instead of shell casings she would drop sockets.

I'm sure that will be incorporated in the game.

We better get line credits!

    Good to see they've identified the risk in releasing a pt 2 (it might lack the impact of the first game) and used the one method always sure to rope in the punters: skirt.
