Half-Life 2 Box Art?

Sierra Entertainment's Half-Life 2 Page (thanks GenGamers) has been updated with a new box shot, though it cannot be said for certain that this represents the final cover art for the retail release of Valve's shooter sequel.

Take a look at the screenshot with that scientist from the original halflife and how he looks now... Sad, just sad. Blocky head, blurry texture, no features.

A year ago I was impressed by the screenies and vids, but now Farcry, Painkiller, etc has numbed me when it comes to HL2.

What impressed me in the videos was the physics, but now that they have screwed up with the release date for so long, and a zillion games had Havok before they did, it just seems to me like another shooter with a story lite.

And who the hell cares about the box art huh??

I would say September at the earliest, with a bit push to make it a Christmas title in October/November.

As for the pictures itself, I would be surprised if they used that as the actual, final cover. I certainly know who that is, but many "mainstream" gamers may not.

Besides, isn't Stephen already using his picture on this site?

Really, really scared for Thief: Deadly Shadows after watching that IGN movie,

Wonderful. Here comes the grammar police to tell me I'm using sarcasm in the wrong context.

Ok fine, I was being sardonic. Happy?

The problem is that people think when I said this:
Maybe that's the resources that the hacker stole that required a change.

I was actually being serious. Come on.

Ok. Fine. I suck.


Nice cover art though. Then again, I'd be happy if it was just black with the hl2 logo.

I pray that there's a metal-case DVD edition on the way. Preferrably, with an imprinted crowbar on the front, in the style of that magazine teaser ad we saw pre-E3 last year. That would be sublime, and I'd proudly display it over my desk.

Cutedge you might want to look up the definition of sarcasm, you seem to be grossly misinformed

No, that's not what he was saying. Read it again.

Jebus. I even included a sarcasm tag to show that I was being sarcastic. I was >joking<. Sheesh.


I don't get the box anyway. I'm getting it through Steam whenver it comes out as part of that ATI deal.

I also keep game boxes. And hardware boxes for that matter.

I hear that if you type "pull head out of ass" into the console it cures all your ills.

Lose it? I didn't lose it. It's not like, "Whoops! Where'd my job go?" I QUIT.

i cant get past the final level with the G-man in his nuclear powered mechanized exoskeleton system (NMES). His freeze ray gun stops me cold and then he shatters me into a million pieces with his mallet-arm. I heard if you use the gauss cannon you can shoot the special crystal in the freeze ray gun and make it go critical but i can never get a shot in? do i just need to keep working at it or is there a better way?

Whoa! 14 comments (15 including this one) over something that most people will throw away as soon as the CDs are out of the packaging

I never would have thought so many throw the box away, all my game boxes are sacred grounds, and for the last couple of years* they've come in "DVD-cases" so it wouldnt make any sense to throw them away..

*"Giants" was the last "Paper box" game i bought, and Heavy Metal:FAKK2 the first "DVD-cover"
