    ;) Worthy of it's own thread

    I saw this (top news item on this site right now):
    http://www.planethalflife.com/
    "The Release Date is Unchanged"

    Which links to this:
    http://www.computerandvideogames.co...computerandvideogames.com/news/news_story.php(que)id=95549

    (When they say unchanged - they're talking about the original projected Sept 30th ship date)

    It's gonna be great...and imagine the spinoffs it'll give way to (like CS etc for the orginal)!!

    Spinoffs.. you have no idea!

    I've read a lot of stuff about the engine... let me give show you what has never happened before for the modding community at a games release ;) :

    Time will tell... but it's suppose to be the easiest 3D engine to work with and mod. Good things will come. Counterstrike is so popular but HalfLife was a 90% redone Quake1 engine game. Can you imagine how good Counterstike on the HL2 engine will be?

    I've never played or really been interested in the HL & CS series. But with UT getting old and UT2003 not being so good I will have to check this out.

    Yea this is very good news. But, there are other sources that say it still isn't. Check out amazon, ebay, or gamestop. They all show different release dates. The whole mystery around this release date is very confusing. The publisher says it is pushed back and the Valve programmers say they never heard of it getting delayed. :confused:

    Flatbeat, unless ur runnin a SERIOUSLY crappy computer, it should handle it. Haven't u been readin up on da HL2 news? think they said like 80% of the time they were making HL2 was put into the engine.

    I wonder what are the requirements for the game, as far as the video card, things like that ¿?

    Heh, the modders are already coming out in droves and the public SDK hasnt even been released yet. (although a few special people have it ;) ) Check out this link for a current list of mods already being worked on. Of course, 90% of them will probably never even get to alpha, but the ones that do will hopefully be awesome.
