Half Life 2 Delayed

*sigh* Well I suppose it had to happen sooner or later. Apparently Half Life 2, touted as "coming out on Sept 30th" and "on track for the original release date" has been pushed back to sometime in the holiday season. This completely sucks. I was hoping that they'd be able to do it, and while I don't like the idea of a company pushing out a buggy or incomplete game, I'm not sure if that's worse than getting lots of publicity on the fact they had a firm ship date (instead of "when it's done") and were going to hit it, and then dropping the ball (unless you believe some people :)

Oh well, not much we can do but move on and hope that they don't end up like Duke Nukem WhenForever! The game is still going to kick ass when it comes out though from what I've seen. Or at least if it comes out in a reasonable timeframe.
