Half-Life 2 = Fool's Gold

A post to the HL2Fallout Forums purportedly from Valve's Gabe Newell raised a bit of a ruckus by predicting that a Half-Life 2 gold announcement would be coming Monday (thanks Borgie). A subsequent update on Shacknews, however, reveals that this post was faked, and not actually from Gabe. We are now prepared to land; Please return your stewardess to her original upright position.

The forum account was hacked.

This is what he gets for using Dunkin Donuts for a password.

So tell me again why people are harshing on Gabe Newell for *not* posting the fake 'Going Gold' announcement? I'm confused.

9. Kinda made me want Steam after all Aug 28, 2004, 11:33 Ratty
 
I knew intellectually that Steam users would get it immediately but I didn't think I really cared until I heard about the fake announcement. Then when I heard I really really didn't want to have to wait two weeks. Maybe this was all part of a cruel Valve plot.

This just in: Gabe Newell says donut eating binge caused by malicious hacker attack. Newell claims that a "Snow Crash" type virus was used to rewrite his source code, resulting in yet another tragic episode of procrastination. Apparently he emailed his soul to Satan, who promptly used it as a trojan horse into his appetite-control subroutines.

No HL2 for you!

Funny, I can only picture him sitting there with his face buried in a pile of Krispy Kreme donuts. That evil fat fuck.

I agree the hype machine is redlining and may blow at any moment.
