Half-Life 2 Movies & More Date Data

A pair of ShakyCamâ„¢ "technical" movies on Half-Life 2 have been released, one showing off the Alyx character from the game and the other demonstrating some what can be done in the editor with walls. The Alyx movie is 54 MB, available on FilePlanet (registration required), FileFront, GameCenter.cz, and Worthplaying, while the Walls movie is 55 MB, available on FilePlanet (registration required), FileFront, GameCenter.cz, and Worthplaying. Also, in the ongoing marketing fiasco/publicity boon (depending on your perspective) regarding the Half-Life 2 release date, Eurogamer has a report up from ECTS quoting Valve's Greg Coomer as saying: "it'll be tight, but Half-Life 2 is still on for a September 30th ship."

I will believe the release date, when I get in in my hands.
Other then that, they should start talking about a demo release date, and not the shiping date!

I want a demo before I buy the damn thing, come on valve!
Yes we all know it is going to sell well, but alot of people are like me, wanthing to know if they should wait till they upgrade to buy it!

Actually, I remember reading somewhere that they were planning on releasing some sort of standalone benchmark/test type proggie prior to release, which is supposed to give you just that sort of information. Sure hope they follow through on that!

Well we can all forget about the september release, that's for sure. As they said when Valve was asked if it's gonna be on time; "No comment" and that's a pretty big "NO"

Did you read the article?

quoting Valve's Greg Coomer as saying: "it'll be tight, but Half-Life 2 is still on for a September 30th ship."

That sounds like a yes to me.

Looks like you are going to wait for a while. I believe a Valve person said that if one was done it would be after the game goes gold. They would not put a time frame to the release of the demo either. Surprised?

it'll be tight, but Half-Life 2 is still on for a September 30th ship = It'll ship September 30th, but crash to your desktop every 5 minutes.

Valve: DO NOT RUSH HL2. If you only release two games a decade, at least make sure they work right out of the box. We've waited a loooong time. I'll happily wait an extra month to ensure things work like they're supposed to.

Hey, I'm glad if I'm wrong, but I'm so sure I saw just that quote....

Here:http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=43405

"Can you finally confirm that the release date will be 9/30 to put an end to all the rumors of the last few days?

No comment."

I know, doesnt says much, but if Valve "wont comment" and says "it is gonna be tight" I think I rather wait an extra month as Draft said.

The game is only a month away, so no point in asking for a demo now as there wouldn't be enough time.

I'm hoping there will be at least some good previews on gaming sites with the near finished version soon, like in at the most 20 days, so we can start getting impressions about the gameplay compared to the videos.

Hell no. Send it out! Put it to gold. Valve knows the game works & it will definately work with an Intel 3.0 ATI pro256 9800. SEND IT! If there are problems, patch them later. I want the game. SEND IT!

While we are showing off with our rigs:

When you put it that way...I'm pretty sure it will run on my P4 3,0 (clocked to 3,5) Ghz, GF FX5900 Ultra 256 (clocked to 511/932)...yadda yadda, too

I just want it to bee stable. And there are alot of games comming out right now. Just got Tron2, JK:JA and Republic today, and Homeworld 2 and Savage are Gold, so I can wait a little while longer

I'm mildly worried here...I've got one of those 9500's that you can mod to a 9700 thru the wizzard mod, and the site that hosted it is no longer available.

anyone know where I can get new ones? did he get shut down by ATI? I'm mostly worried cause I'm *sure* that HL2 will require that I have the 3.6 or later drivers, and I don't have the wizzard mod for em. yeah, I could live with running at half my card's capability, but who the hell wants to do that?

I sure am glad we have such a community here at bluesnews who all know exactly how games are going to come out, and when, and if they are going to suck/be buggy or not. Don't know what I would do without you guys.

I think Greg Croomer seems like the more logical employee at Valve at the moment. Gabe has been the one saying no comment and I also believe he is going nut-job insane. I mean have you read this interview? http://hl2.gamingsource.co.uk/?content=interviews? Gabe Newell: Because we are teasing you.
Yes, I took that out of context, but it could be true I tells ya.

"I've got one of those 9500's that you can mod to a 9700 thru the wizzard mod"

you might want to look into hard-moding it, after that you will have no worries.

I wouldn't even think about doing a hard mod until you determine that your card will work without artifacts. It would suck to have to go through moving the resistor twice.

well sure but sense he said it can be moded with the wizard and he just needed updated drivers i figure that is not an issue.
