    Re: HL2 Gold?

    LOL

    The smacktards are arguing over the terms "mastering" (making the first disc to be used for duplication) and "gone gold" (ready for duplication and distribution). Some of those guys need to google those terms. In any case, it pretty much means HL2 will be out soon, which nobody there seems excited about.

    I particularly like the comments asking what there is to master for a game (somebody doesn't know what a master disc is) and that gone gold means selling a certain number of copies (duh, this is the game industry, not the music industry).

    Well, I was hoping it would be out by late August but they're shooting for a mid/late September release. I guess I'll be squeezing in some HL2 play while the schoolwork pours in.

    My understanding was that CS:S would be the multi-player for HL2

    Re: HL2 Gold?

    I swore I'd never buy the damned thing but I can't frickin' wait. I'll probably buy a new box to run it also. I'd be happy if it was out by Xmas but we're talking about a jinxed game to begin with. It'd be a good idea to buy my video card to suit the HL2 engine and not the Doom3 engine I surmise. Like the major patches it might be hard to get a copy as soon as it's released unless one pre-orders. What's the hottest ATI card right now, 256 9800? Is 128 sufficient for games being released in the immediate future or is 256 nice to have? Ooh, I'm getting all excited...

    Has Amazon posted a release date for HL2 before? I dunno, but I'm thinking about pre ordering it... That's the link that all good TG members will order from, as well...

    LOL, check out this "review" of CS2 at the link posted above:
    16 of 76 people found the following review helpful:

    Counter Strike 2 = Fantastic!, January 4, 2004
    Reviewer: [email protected] (USA) - See all my reviews

    Having worked for Valve and recently Sierra I have played HL 2 (or as its codenamed 'half life two') on several occassions. I programmed several parts of the game and recently i have done games testing with the beta and also the deltas. HL2 is very good but the best thing is counter strike 2: Miami Mission. The whole mod is incredible with such things as parasailing, paragliding and also paras, and as with the orignal cs the para is the best gun. Other new features include the ability to shout commands and hold your breathe, this is particuluarly usefull if a team mate makes a 'special' radio call. Also we have cut down on the models so you only use the german SS Model or the Iraqi OS 4M4 model, the OS model is parcularly scary, he has a beard, which flutters in real time. As for guns we have removed the n00by carbine in favour of my favourite gun, the luger. As i say this is work in process and me and the guys at valve dont think it will be out this side of 2006. I had better get back to testing the new vehicle the P00 ZY Wagon which looks like a warthog (humour) only with 5 wheels.

    Anyway I will try and write again soon.
