WAIT WAIT WAIT!!! I clicked on the link and read the story, rather them focusing on the indiviuals that commeted the crimes and show there pictures they have screen shots of the game, a demo movie of the game, an interview, more screen shots and more interviews.

What I'm getting at is this is starting to look ALOT MORE like an ad rather than a news story. I would had least expect them to say what contries these guys are from.

Rather than a story it looks more like an ad............ And just another sad atempt to keep some "heat" on a project that has already been delayed enough.

We'll see if they've actually caught the correct people. Unfortunately history tends to show that they end up catching the people who are only just at the edge of any crime.

It is just unbelievable to wait so long for a game. Fortunately I am not a big fan of half life even if I enjoyed playing half life 1 (never counterstrike). But if I were a fan I think I would have given up by now.

They may have just been stalling all this time waiting for ATI and nVidia to release the new GPUs, I'm just guessing.
