HL2 11/01

Yadda Yadda

According to a post by Valve''s Gabe Newell on the Half-Life 2 Fallout forums (thanks Hodder11), Half-Life 2 will be done real soon. In fact, they expect the game to gold on Monday. Here''s the super lengthy announcement from Gabe
We''re going gold monday...

wow, I`ve been missing on all this Steam thing, I guess. What does ""preload"" mean? That you are loading the game files before the game is released? 3 files a day or something?
That just sounds...funny. HL3 could start preloading from the day one of dev cycle - file by file, fix by fix.
