    We at CS-Nation are seeing a large under-current of information that strongly leans toward the possibility of Half-Life 2 going gold very shortly. Information points to an official announcement from VU Games or Valve Software tomorrow, but — as with all rumors — our sources could be completely wrong. Rumors usually don't turn out well for us, but at least they allow for hilarious comment threads where everyone flames each other.

    Let's get it boiling, boys!

    I wonder. If it goes gold does that mean those who bought it on steam can play it before it hits retail stores?

    No it doesn't. The hl2 gcf will be unlocked on the day of it's release. Possible 1pm EST when the steam employees get to work.

    I'm surprised no one's hacked the GCF files yet.

    I think it has somethign to do with Steam. It checks the game files at start up to make sure it is valid files and crap like that.

    now that steams finaly working, it seems to be doing a damn good job at security. actually better then i thought.

    as for those of us that just orderd the gold/silver/bronze package, we will not be playing it the day it goes gold. awhile ago valve said they wont release the game to use until the hard copy hits the shelfs.

    It appears this news is bogus. Check the story entitled: [font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica][size=-1]Doug Lombardi Confirms RC Still In-Process [/size][/font]

    Don't get me wrong, I like Steam a lot. I just hope it doesn't become bloatware. I can see them intergrating a media player into it.

    How about Steam tracking cookies and a Steam search bar providing those wonderful pop-ups.

    I'm... so... tired... of... waiting...

    But it does seem like HL2 gold is close and everyone will stop complaining. Once everyone starts to play all BS will fade away and everyone will just enjoy the game.
