Mark my word... Half-Life 2 will go GOLD on August 4th when DOOM 3 gets on shelves. Then we should see a late september early novemeber shelf date... I don't like all this DOOM3/HL2 hating going on. They are both going to be excellent but for different reasons. My brain [and my bladder] are going to explode, I am going to finish DOOM 3 and HL2 will be there ready to be played.
