The only thing I'd really like to see Half Life 2 for is the uber physics engine it's supposed to be sporting.

I'll be getting HL 2 no matter what! The first game ruled and hopefully the second one will be the same if not better! Cool!
I'm on medication now. I have condition called 'Hunteritise' which is when ever I see a Phoenix, I leap on it's back, rip its skull right out of its head and beat it to death with it!

Will I be buying HL2? Depends if I like it when I play it. I was glad that I played Doom 3 first, because I really hated the storyline and decided not to buy it. It's a shame that such a nice engine has such a crappy storyline attached to it, but when HL2 comes out nobody will care anymore.

Half-Life 2 should be well worth the wait, but it's becoming more and more of a joke with its continuous setbacks etc. Can you believe it was originally intended for 2003?
Still its not as bad as Duke Nukem Forever. God knows when that'll come out.

"The Movies" i think started back in 2001 (maybe 2002) and it is still going. One of the devs said on their forums that from what he gathers it's around 75% complete. He was giving us an educated guess. (Note: Release Date is still not set; and this guy is from one department eg. art department) It's a Lionhead game being made by the Brits, and the only competition they have is The Sims 2 only because The Sims 2 has a movie maker in the game. But The Movies focuses on making movies, more specifically: script-writing, directing, costume design, running the studio, building sets, etc. You are in complete control of the movies you make. If you are tired of directing than a NPC basically takes over for you. same if you don't want to write scripts or build sets; an NPC guy will take over so your studio doesn't go to mush. There's also a sandbox mode for basically unlimited money and whichever decade you want to be in to make the movies. That i didn't mention for the regular story mode. Story mode you have a set amount of money and you progress from about 1910 or 1920 to present day pretty much. you'll advance through technology: better cameras (maybe even HDTV. don't know) better sets, better trailers, buildings, fashion, costumes, etc. There's an E3 trailer out there that is very well done so go get it if your interested. I think i found mine on www.gametrailers.com (there's also HL2 E3 gameplay trailers there in .bik!!!! format. Excellent quality and it makes you want to grab the mouse and start playing. That's how "gamish" (game-ish) quality it feels. (Note: Half Life 2 trailers should still be in that "New" section which is the scrolling box thingy in the middle of the page.

Sporto will love "The Movies". I just know it. I seem to remember hearing either from Scooter or Sporto himself that he likes making movies in games more than in real life.

O, and before i forget, the movies that you make in the game "The Movies" can be saved and have music, sound, rearranged scenes and anything else done to it and that complete product can be uploaded HOPEFULLY to www.themoviesfiles.com (Na na!) I asked Scooter to put in a word to FN for themoviesfiles.com because the game is supposed to be VERY modable and people can upload their own movies for others to view. mods would be things like a chair or table for a western set or a street light for a specific neighborhood that somebody might want to create. costumes could be something to mod (star trek uniforms), different kinds of studio buildings (scriptwriters office, actors trailer), even more than what i'm saying here.

Have fun reading probably my longest post ever. What ever! o well, it's a VERY good game. (so is HL2)

LOL, you probably heard that from me, expect that I said that I like making movies better in real life, but it is a lot easier to do so in a game environment. I think I said that while we were shooting the ERP promo.

HL2's been in production for 5 years?! Eek! Geese, I thought it had only been about 2-3 years since they started working on it!

Well Half-Life 2 will be good when or if it comes out. Still, I'm almost positive it won't have been worth the wait. Is Counter Strike: Source going to come with the retail version of HL2 or is it only for that preload thing?

Are you mad it will have been worth the wait every 1 said that if it came out last year that we would have been more disapointed in that because the game wouldnt have beeen has good because theyve had an extra year to develop it

any way i think there are several ways that hl2 comes with you can either by SP only SP+MP and i think that comes with ccs but ive also heard that hl1 is going to be in with hl2 but with the hl2 engine so that be good then theres the special pack with all little goodies in it like poster and a mug and conncept art with signed autogrphs thats what ive seen , but i think that be around 60 for the special pack. Oh and ill tell yu it will be woth the wait theres no other FPS like it and all the mods what are being made like StarTrek:Borg and EliteForce3
