Half-Life 2 Imminent?

HalflifeSource (thanks HomeLAN Fed) is reporting news from Valve's Doug Lombardi, saying: "Half-Life 2 will be passed on to publisher Vivendi for final mastering and duplication within days for it's early August target. The official appearance will make store shelves sometime in mid to late September."

Yeah, someone has a short memory all right:

Ok, I'll concede Valve was the one hyping it that it would be ready soon.

But my main point is, we've only known about HL-2 for about what, 1.5 years? 2 years? They kept it quiet for like 3 or 4 years. Meanwhile, we've known about DOOM 3 and have been following the .plan posts forever.

My main point was people are complaining "Valve needs to shutup and finish the game," when in reality, for a while, they were doing a lot better than iD in terms of shutting up.

Too bad they didn't hit their mark. Had it been released Sept 2003, it would have been amazing. A sleeper from out of nowhere with everything that HL-2 has, with DOOM 3 a year away. But they messed it up after they started hyping the shit out of it the few months before it was "supposed" to be released, then taking an extra year.

Now, it has to compete directly with DOOM 3 (which is being released at least a month sooner),. I'm not surprised or annoyed for the delay, sh!t happens in large software projects.

I think DOOM 3 might be slightly better, and I have more respect for Carmack (he seems less corporate than Gabe) and more respect for iD than Valve (iD has more successes, Valve might just be a 1-hit-wonder). But I'm hoping both will deliver great games.
