Half-Life 2

Anyone else looking forward to this?

This game is going to fucking rock, and (hopefully) won't ruin the Half-Life name by going multi-player with all those "d00d sp33k" people.

But yeah, Sept. 30th is the planned relase date. This is going to fucking rock.

I'm wondering if the same team is working on it and if so, would they be building an updated Counter-Strike. Hmmmm. One can only hope.

martyr...YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Can't wait. if you have not read PC Gamer yet, there is an exellent article about it. The good news is that they have the same writer and dev team, so the game will have some very familiar feelings to it. The new graphics and particle engine have been updated, and the game is now very scalable. Screen shots look really, really awesome. New bugs to fight, new characters to deal with. The headcrabs are even cooler than before! Woo! can't wait!

Oh yes, the graphics engine is totally being redone, but still having the same "look" to it.

The scientist with with glasses looks to same but it has redone looks.

I can't wait.

<B>SEPT. 30TH!!!!</B>

Yeah, I'm really excited. Not sure what it was about that game, but it was really cool. I'm using it as a really good reason to upgrade some badly needed computer parts. Hey, I want to experience the game, not just play it!

I just read somewhere here that DoomIII might be out in November...geez, I wont have any time to do anything but game this fall...heh heh....

I heard Doom3 is going to suck like a Spice Girl.

That's why you download the demo's first, right?

To reply to why someone liked half-life but didn't know why...

The reason is probably that -stuff happened-. Things popped out of walls...you could save scientists...fight military....It was just cool.

That's probably why. Like remember when you talked to the cop, and he was then killed before he could tell you something by a silenced pistol? Then the dudes in black suits jumped around and killed you?


Sweet game...

No 3d card?!?! What are you running, a Trident?

Seriously tho, I read that HL2 is scalelable enough to run on a 900mhz with a TNT2 card. I'd imagine that it would look like HL1 when scaled down.

Johnny R: Gordon Freeman will have a new and rather attractive sidekick in this game. Her name is Alyx. And apparently there has been much work on her facial and body movements (did I say facial...hahaha) to make her very realistic. I imagine adding a little sex appeal to the game will add a wider audience. But seriously, the first Half Life sold over 8 million copies. Is that necessary?


Janki: tell us your system specs and we'll find a good card for you. Really!

Are you kidding? Half-Life wouldn't even be half as popular as it is now if it weren't for all of the multiplayer mods that have come out for it... Specifically, TFC, Counter-Strike, and DoD. Half-life's multiplayer capabilities are what made it the game it is today. They would be making a huge mistake by not adding such flexible multiplayer capabilities to HL2.

Ya supposedly the graphics for Half Life 2 are going to give Doom 3 a run for its money and if so, hot diggity damn. I had the alpha and the graphics on that were great and they could have only improved from there so i believe both of the games will definitely be worth the wait.

*edit for stupidity.

Some of the Half-Life 2 screenshots I've seen are absolutely amazing... Practically photo-realistic. I really can't wait to play it... I'm afraid I'm going to have to get a new computer to run it though.

I hope you mean Doom 3. If Half-Life 2 doesn't give Doom 2 a run for its money graphically, well.........

Granted, to play it well we're all prolly gonna need to. But the bare minimum requirements are a TNT and a 700mhz proc. I think almost everyone here has something at least similar or better than that.

Dusted off Half-Life the other day and decided to go through that again. After playing it for a while, I realized that I'm really excited about Half-Life 2. The screenshots looked awesome. In fact, they looked so awesome, I was worried I was going to have to break out my IBM Deep Blue supercomputer just to be able to play it. Nice that they made it so you only need a 700MHz CPU with a simple 3-D card.

It's possible, but likely not until after the game comes out.

I figure ATi will probably ship demos with new graphic cards.

Very interested in getting this one. However, the STEAM release for online gaming is really very irritating. I despair that they'll implement this into HL2 as well.

Upgrading a few parts as well. Got a 128mb GFFX5900, and will upgrade mobo to support it, as well as new ram, and eventually new cpu (current is duron 1ghz).
