Played Painkiller and Far Cry recently, both of which have aspects of HL2 I was really looking forward to. Ah well, I will most likely buy the game anyway
well as part of the game was to be online stolen code made it very easy for crackers to make hacks/cheats for the game ... possibly even something malicious.SIRE said:I really think it's pathetic I don't even understand why they had to rewrite the code that was stolen, everyone knows it was stolen not like some kid can claim he helped make the game and make profit from that. Besides as many of you said HL2 better be damn! good to stand up to the competition whenever it releases (2005)?

~September - Oh my god our servers were hacked and our code stolen.
- (The recent NTFS disaster aside.) Programming companies do not loose code. It is in multiple levels of backup. The intrusion would not have delayed them more than a week while they unarchived the backups.
