Half-Life 2 Getting Close

@ 2004/08/13
These are fewer issues than we thought we would get, so we are on track for the broader deployment on 8/18 (pre-loading on 8/16). This is good news for our overall Half-Life 2 release as we aren't seeing any pernicious stability, performance, or compatility issues.

I played farcry in july, and loved every minute of it
I played doom3 in august and loved most minutes of it
I wanna play halflife2 in september and love any minute of it.
