Half-Life 2 Gone Gold!.. Maybe
The good people over at GameSpot
have been doing a little rumor control on the latest buzz in the PC gaming
industry. It seems that there may be some hope for Half-Life 2
as it has supposedly gone gold! Gold, as in meaning it is ready for some
shipping! Gold, as in the game may catch the holiday shoppers. Gold, as
in the two bickering parties, VU Games and Valve, may have come to some
agreement to allow the game to be released at the beginning of the six-month
grace period laid down by the courts. Gold... well, you get the idea.
It's almost here, I can feel it
Only a Rumor
While Valve and VU Games have declined to comment on the rumor of Half-Life
2 going gold, it is known that VU Games has been holding a 'finished'
version of the game since mid-September. What gives any validity to the
rumor of going gold? A Piñate! It seems that Valve had a piñate
hung at their headquarters, which can only be destroyed once Half-Life
2 went gold. In the buzz, it seems that the piñate is in fact
[now] beaten to a pulp.
To help add more validity to the rumor, it seems that just today they allowed
the first ever full review of Half-Life 2. Better start napping
now as you may be losing tons of hours of sleep playing a game that may
be coming out within the month.
