    ... I never realized till now how much farcry humbles HL2. Well, I guess that's what happens when you miss your release date by a year.

    Just what I thought. Really doesn't look that good now. Who knows, maybe the physics will make up for it.

    Most games do.

    Irregardless, I am still excited about HL2, despite what has happened with Valve and their shenanigans.

    the physics? isnt the same physics engine being used in max payne 2 and farcry? just not all feature are enabled. the physics will be the same except that you can destroy things and shoot through things better or you can shoot through things... like in counter strike...

    I think the AI and storyline and just the over all gaming experience will be different with HL2 than with Far Cry and the rest. Just my thoughts on it.

    i never really thought hl2 was anything that stunning i think theres a little too much hype about it. like doom 3 is just a whole new level, hl2 some textures still looked a little soso at times like the UT engine. no doubt it flexible but i just dont think its a big deal i think more ppl are going crazy over since ATI is enhanced for it.

    Oh well, I liked the original Half-Life, so I'm sure HL2 will be good :)

    I take it you didn't download the alpha back in October or November (whenever it was)... The game was stunning then, and really, it still is. But I hope that Valve doesn't push HL2 back so far that other games look better visually (i.e. Pain Killer, Farcry..)

    From what I see I don't think so-- It will be an X box port....


    Seriously hope not though.

    The textures look very suspicious to me.... Dues EX IW??? very similar..
    It's going to be an X-box release too- there was an article a while ago about that.. I think it's going to wreck the game, they sold out..

    I hope thats' not the case, but I wouldn't be surprised.

    no no...its not an xbox port...carmack doesnt write stuff for console...its coming out for pc, then it will be ported to xbox after about 6 months from what ive heard. the release dates would be opposite that if it was a console port.

    Yeah I know it will be a PC release first, but I bet 50 that the game will suffer for the PC solely because the X-Box is where the money is for the producers. They will make sacrifices so that it will run on the extremely old, slow, and crappy X-box. Carmack is too busy spending millions playing with silly rockets, and conspiring w/ Nvidia - I'm skeptical. Sadly, I don't think he is even serious about DoomIII or any video game anymore. If he was it would have been done by now.. Sure it will be a good game compared to most of the garbage coming out of the industry today, but I know it's getting chopped up, and won't be what we want or what it should be..
    I mean how long has it been in production now? The "amazing technology" he is using is based on Geforce 256.
    He is just constantly rewriting the thing by now- I mean who knows what he is doing, he's rich and doesn't need anything, so he's getting lazy about video games. Remember Metallica when they were young , broke, and hungry? The first 3 albums were amazing works of art- shaping the sound of the music you listen to today whether you know it or not. After that when they got old, fat, rich, and complacent- they lost that spark, they lost the little something that turned them from ordinary everyday talented kids into future shaping geniuses.. Now they suck. I'm not saying Carmack sucks, I'm saying he's rich and lazy compared to what he used to be.. at least when it comes to games. It's just a side project for him now.
