Half-Life 2 Gold

Vivendi Universal Games sends along the eagerly anticipated press release that Half-Life 2 has gone gold, and is scheduled to ship world-wide on November 16, 2004. Here's an excerpt:

LOS ANGELES (October 18, 2004) – Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) today announced that Half-Life® 2, the sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed PC titles in gaming history, will ship to retail outlets around the world in November. The Company confirmed that Half-Life 2, developed by Valve Software, has gone gold with a planned retail street date of November 16, 2004. The countdown to the highly anticipated retail street date has begun around the world, as VU Games completes plans to ship localized versions of Half-Life 2 simultaneously in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Korean, Thai and Japanese.

“Half-Life 2 has surpassed our expectations in every sense – its high-quality graphics, ground-breaking physics and immersive first-person shooter gameplay set a new standard for PC action games,” said Bruce Hack, CEO of VU Games. “Half-Life 2 will go down as one of the best-selling PC titles, and we are thrilled to deliver this ground-breaking title to the worldwide gaming community this fall.”

If Steam is required to play, how will people play the PS2 version?

I feel that the power still immanates sufficiently that we may deign to fancy getting 325 posts upon this magnificent thread known to all noble and edumacated peoples in the world as THE HALF LIFE 2 GOLD THREAD. Or something.

Let us continue forwith and without any derision to utter completely meaningless statements in haphazard fashion.

Onward men!!!
We march for victory and War!!!

325 posts is at hand.

I will secure the northern flank, take the point.

WE HAVE ACHIEVED VALHALLA!!!

Without ambition one cannot achieve the great things we have achieved here on the Half Life 2 Gold Thread.

For we stand together, and that is why we are the KINGS. A house divided cannot stand.

We hold this thread to be self-evident, that all threads are created less than this thread, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of 300 posts.

That to secure this thread, Websites are instituted among Men, deriving their posting powers from the consent of the people, --That whenever any Form of website becomes destructive of this thread, it is the Right of the People to post more stuff here, and to institute new threads, laying its foundation.

And on the seventh day the thread rested, looked upon the 300 posts it had created, and said "It is good."

Amen

A crack? Who cares. So now I have to keep around another CD and make sure I don't loose it just so I can install HL2 on my new computer. Of course the same thing goes for any PC game with all its patches. I literally have CDs worth of patches I keep around just in case I play the game in the future. This is not the case for my console games. Not really trying to argue a point, but a point is still to be made.

Check out HL2 this news if you have not seen it yet...

About a month after HL2 releases, there will probably be files available to remove the activation crap. That kind of sucks, but it isn't a big deal.
