    To settle any recent confusion and rumours that have been floating around, Half-Life 2: Episode One is not delayed.[br]The release date for Episode One is still May 31st. Here's what Doug Lombardi had to say:
    I may have been happy for a delay, but this makes me even happier. Only two months to go.

    Sounds good to me, and I dont mind if SIN is delayed until june or later. If i get Episode 1 on May 31st thats good enough for me.

    Well, that's interesting. Two points.

    1. He sounds very sure about that date.
    2. Imperfect tense. Was spent?

    Does this mean they're already finished?

    Wow. Now this is very nice news. Cant wait to play this. Valve always makes things insane. Only if they shipped all my stuff lol. Missed one of my mousepads :/ Hope the problem gets fixed.

    I can't wait for this. I'm relatively new to the HL series and just finished playing 1 and 2 (along with blue shift and opposing force), and I've only got The Lost Coast to play now, so I need new content soon :p

    So chris_d, Does this mean that Episode one will Suck balls because it not delayed like the stolen version of hl2 before it was delayed and the first version of hl1 before it was delayed??? If they dont delay the game untill July it will suck major balls. That means they decided to cut a lot of features.

    lol, yea it was pretty funny, he pwned chris.


    seriously though. maybe ea isn't releasing it for a month after steam? maybe this will now start another valve -publisher feud? i mean everyone already hates ea, so valve gets ea to publish the game, releases it a month earlier then they can to get as many steam purchases as possible bla bla bla


    CONSPIRACAAAA




    just a theory fellers, don't start namecalling over it

    I did not mean to pwned chris_d, I just think he right about what he said. If the game isnt delayed untill after summer it probably means they decided to cut some features or levels from the final game.

    yea d00d, this place is for die hard FANBOIS only. here you have to be so hardcore that a month delay is better then no delay, but no delay is even better then a month delay. you need that grand logic to post here.:borg:

    Necessary delays are better than no delays. No delays are better than unnecessary delays. Valve have been very good at calling when a delay is necessary.

    Who knows. Could be an improvement to HDR, small adjustments to AI, anything.

    See you in a week. People around here are going to learn that you aren't going to get away with random, abusive behaviour.

    Watch your mouth or you'll join Ermac. Quite frankly its ridiculous to say Valve lies...are they really doing that? Telling lies? Or they telling you a porky pie when they announce are release? No, they aren't. Christ.
