    I believe gabe does things in terms of spreading the love. For a while this site was his info site. than he did some stuff at the site that shall not be named. Than he went to hl2fallout. It's called giving the community as a whole some love. Spreading it around and whatnot.

    I could care less when the preload is scheduled to begin. What's important to me is when it's scheduled to end.

    That doesn't make sense. The preload isn't going to "end". It is just transferring some files to prepare for release.

    There could be future preloads, but that would be different.

    They really have to be getting close to this thing going gold. I think they've just been waiting to preload it until they're ready to make a gold announcement within a week. I mean, why start preloading it if it isn't close to gold?

    True but, in this world you gotta take what u get, and for many this is a sign of being that major step closer to a gold date, i wonder how much info will leak from the files though.. after that little spoiler fallout (cough) im a little edgy.

    To all who've been bitching about missed dates:

    This is an example of a solid, announced date.

    I HIGHLY doubt they'll miss it.

    OMG if they miss this one.....seriously I think people's brains would collectively start falling out. Certain people on this forum might spontaneously combust with anger. Not me of course. Because I'm always calm and collected.
