    I don't know why people bother playing pre-retail versions of games. I can hardly keep up with finishing the games I already have. If this is true, then it'll eventually make it's way to the internet and be spread over BT or Edonkey.

    Compiled and shared? Where is it? That is not the FULL version of HL2. People were already able to compile it months ago after the source was originally leaked. People had HL1 levels running on the HL2 engine months ago. What was leaked ... was not the full game. It didn't contain the textures, levels, or sounds. What was leaked was a .rar file full of .cpp files. I'm not surprised that they'd actually release that on Russian streets. They've sold incomplete versions of SoF2 and Hitman 2 in the past. Keyword being incomplete ... and not final.

    It's got a lot of sounds and about nine to fifteen maps (depending on who put it together). I've seen it, and it's buggy as crap, with falling out of maps, bad AI, and what have you, but it works. It's anything but a real game at the stage it was leaked...I do want to buy the real deal when it comes out, though.

    The shaders are the only things that set the graphics engine apart, so the gameplay better be pretty strong.

    If they have the engine, they could always flesh it out with their own maps and sounds, not necesarilly the official map and sounds. I'm looking forward to the game ... but what I'm more excited about is the mods that will come out after the game has been released.
