I agree with Bramski, and I think D00M and Skunk are out to lunch. Yes, Skunk, let's consider facts: Valve is a game company. Someone STOLE the source code, in apparently a very sophisticated way. "Letting down the community" by running late on a GAME (which they're sweating over for YOU, and which is looking AMAZING), is nothing compared to how the company could go out of business if someone can make pirated copies off the source code. In the years I've worked in video games, nothing baffles me more than people who harbor such bitterness against a company whose boards they post to, and whose products they devour. Gabe has reached out to all of us. It's a humbling moment. They could all sink because of this, and he knows it. There might be no HL3. He needs our help to find a needle in a haystack -- or, to be precise, a prick.
