Haha, I was just about to post the same quote. I'm trying to work out what the "so many other cool things going on" were. No surprise that they suddenly realise what's *actually* cool after playing HL2.
Even if they'd put it in, it wouldn't have been implemented as well as the Grav Gun, I'm sure, though it sure would have stolena bit of Valve's thunder.
And they've stolen bullet-time from Max Payne as well.. they claim it's different because the player stays at normal speed while the world slows down, but I believe that was the case in MP2 as well.
