In the LINK provided by clicknext earlier in the thread, your question is answered... I live in central time (GMT -6), so it won't be unlocked for me until 2 am (even worse for east coast)... I'm not stayin up that late. :|

Oh well, guess since I've waited patiently enough for the past 1+ year(s?), I can afford to wait a few hours longer....

This has NOT been confirmed by VU or Valve.

Well then... my eyes suck. I've missed important parts of quite a few things I've read in the past few days... knowing VU, that's most likely how it's going to end up happening though....

I agree. It would be nice if they would verify it.

Also, there is a lot of talk about HL2 multiplayer. A Half Life 2 game server has popped up a couple times now. When you try to join, it says 'Only Beta Testers' allowed. Strange stuff.

Oh well. Next week if fine with me. I can't wait to play, but I've got a couple other games to hold me over till we finally get it.

Hi Guys.

What I plan on doing is just buy a retail copy of HL2. But I would like to try out the 'Stress Test' to see how my Vid card would handle the game.

Where/How can I get this stress test?

Buy HL2 off steam, open up Counter Strike, and then run the video stress test.

Hmmm........ Is there anyway to use the stress test without getting the game off Steam? I ask this as I have a $50 gift card to Best Buy, so I'm gonna use it then.

Also, anyone know what the Retail price will be for the game?

No way to stress test at the moment unless you purchase HL2 from Steam. So you'll just have to wait till early next week when you buy it from retail. Price for the game will be $50 for the standard edition, which is just HL2 and CS:S. $80 will buy you a collector's edition with a bunch of extra crap.
