Half-Life 2 Going Gold?

@ 2004/08/28
Is Half-Life 2 going gold on Monday? According to Gabe Newell, it is.

Newell announced in a forum post on Half-Life 2 Fallout, that the game was indeed going gold on Monday. Very brief and to the point with no details. Newell is known to post most of his community news in these forums, so there seems to be little doubt it is a legitimate forum post

kinda doing 100 things at the same time and it's full of typos

it should read: "i pulled it off a post i made on another forum. there, it obviously works fine... the [M]-way to quote sucks... it's ok if you quote someone on the board itself, but if you quote someone from outside the board it sucks donkeyballs..."

This morning it was confirmed that the post made concerning Half-Life 2 going gold, orginally thought to be made by Valve's Gabe Newell, was in fact posted by someone that had found his password and used it to post with his account. A Valve employee confirmed it in this thread on the SteamPowered forums.

Also, patient is not a word I would use to describe people's manner of waiting.

At any rate, it's 8:18am ... sorry I slept in or I would have stomped sooner. At any other rate, it looks like hl2fallout.com cleared things up a while ago (relatively) with their Fool's Gold post.

NOFI, jmke, but this message is a little bit misleading
