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."

28. Why would I pick only one? May 14, 2003, 21:26 Propagandhi
 
We can compromise on this issue: Doom 3 and HL 2 will be sweet..

HL 2 will probably be better, but I'll still pay $2000 for a new PC and buy both

Anybody know how much computer you'll need to make the game look and run like that?

I should have watched the HL2 movies last. Now all the other games look like crap.

DOom 3 trailer = ok

I disagree, the DOOM trailer was completely compelling and horrifying in comparision to this. The big baddie was, uh, not so 'bad' when put up against the kickass DOOM monsters.

Move over iD; Valve has your number.

After seeling the Gamespot movie, where Gordon has a gun that levitates metal objects and throws them in the direction your facing, or when he moved a table over in front of the door to prevent the baddies from getting in (and everything on the table was shaking each time the door was attempted to be opened, or when the mini blinds were moving around after being shot, or one of the many other pyshic demostrations showed in the movie, all I can see is Half Life 2 is quite simply awesome.

Valve has been quiet for the last few years and it just goes to show that none of that time has been wasted.

Now if I could only find a site to pre-purchase a copy of what looks to be the best game of this years E3.

Doom 3? what's that?

It breaks up after like 20 seconds because it's not finished d/l. For some reason mine kept stopping the d/l before it was done. Is the teaser avaliable anywhere else? I hit my IGN limit for the day

The facial expression and senuous lines of the maiden are very very nice...

Valve has defintely matured the image of the characters.. this game is well worth it. As was the wait I made for the original HALFLIFE

I chose the right click option.. and had no probs.. the IGN video is "GREAT!"

14. shacknews is helpful for finding links May 14, 2003, 20:12 Elvis
 
You can peruse the shacknews comments for a link to the alternative 30 meg version that is not fuxored at the end.

http://www.shacknews.com/ja.zz?id=7511710 (NOT a direct link to the file)

that last scene - awesome.

The streaming one looks good; the characters look great, and so do the environments and physics.

Yeah HL2 looks good, Doom 3 looks good. Duke Nukem? No where to be found. I hear Gearbox took that one over, they are slapping Co-Op on.

Static and shit. Me too. I think that it's cutting out the download because everybody and their mom is hitting it right now.
