Well, I just got around to "preodering" my copy of Half Life 2 from my newly opened Gamestop store just down the street. Seeing that I had about 10 games I absolutely hated and wanted to get rid of, I took them down so I could get some store credit.

Bought Xenosaga after finally founding out its a branch off of my favorite game of all time Xenogears. The guy asked me if I wanted anything else because I still had about $13 of store credit. Not sure I asked him to read off a few titles he thought were pretty good, FFXI(PS2), City of Heros, the usual list. Then he mentioned HL2, curious I said
"isn't that coming out July?"
"Actually no, I have it here on my screen March 31, and because its 8 day alway from release I think its going to come out."

I don't seriously believe it to be coming out that soon, but what do you think? I was sure to check their site and it even say 7/1/04, you think they just haven't updated their database?

My ETA... 12/24/04 Just in time for X-mas.

It will be released July 17, 2004. It will run on systems just like mine. It will be the perfect game.

I honestly think that game stores are putting dates on HL2 for the mere fact that they know you will be back to check and if 1 out of 100 buy something they are making a profit on telling people when HL2 comes out.

I think you mean Duke Nukem' Whenever.

This HL2/D3 thing is kind of like a showdown in poker, somebody has to call sometime. . .and Painkiller, 2k4, and Far Cry did. ;)

My $$'s on a Black Friday-ish release.

I cannot wait for quite a few games this year!!!

But do you think HL2 will come out before or after Doom3?
