I was thinking that we need a pool as to when HL2 comes out.  Kind of like they do for what day a baby will be born or such.  The only draw back is that I don't have squat for a prize.

I am willing to keep track of who pick which day but without a prize...well it is just bragging rights.  Is that enough?


Anyway, anyone interested pick a day (and no picking a day someone already has)  If anyone wants to donate a prize let me know.


To start it off I am picking....

I thought about that but I picked a few days before so that it could be sure to have shipped to all places.  It is not just a big shopping week but also a big shipping week and if they have any brains they will try to ship it earlier in the week to make sure stores have it.

I'm sure they'll have it in stores days before it's supposed to come out like they did with Doom 3, and I forgot to take into account some store will surely break the release date slywink

Bloodlines is probably not on as many people's radar as Halo 2 is. November 9th, 2004 is Halo 2's release date.  I was making a lil' joke. Heheh.

 Tongue  :lol:

Though, that would be interesting to see the two most anticipated games of the year duke it out on November 9th.

That would not be very interesting for my bank account.

Anyways, I was making a small joke as well.  Bloodlines is basically finished, but they can't release it until Half-life 2 gets released.

I keep hearing this, but I haven't seen anything official.  The last official thing I heard was Bloodlines was still in Alpha about 4-6 weeks ago (going from memory so actual time may vary).  Has anyone heard anything new about the progress?

For Bloodlines look at Ron's post in this thread.  He says it will be released 24 hours after Half-Life 2 is released because HL2 has to come out first since it is the originator of the engine.

To me that means the game is done, although it looks like they eliminated the multiplayer portion.  It also sounds like Ron will be going to see the Bloodlines unveiling at the end of this month.  To me that means its pretty much ready.

EDIT: woo...I must have been tired when I typed this out last night, it didn't make much sense in the first paragraph, now it does.

I thought that seemed suspicious too.  However since the only prize is knowing you were right it isn't like he is going to retire in the Bahamas.
