    Looks like it'll be a very interesting article when Gamespot unveils it later today.

    This game is looking very promising. I've got the preload done and have been playing with Counter-Strike: Source to get an idea on how the game will handle. So far I am liking it quite a bit.

    I would have probably been excited for the Halo 2 release, but that is console only, and I don't plan on paying to play online, nor spend $100.00+ on an Xbox to boot. Instead I picked up Halo 1 for the PC for $24.99 and played that this weekend.

    I downloaded the Doom 3 demo (I'll always download the demo if possible after getting burned on a few PC games, most notably Battlefield: Vietnam) and the graphics are really good, but the gameplay was a let down for me. Even if Half-Life 2 ends up being a let down, I can't wait to play the original Half-Life with the new Source engine. That in itself would be worth the $59.00 to me.

    They can spend that much because they know they will make $100million in the first day

    Movie companies get raped too because they gotta pay Mr. Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks $30million/movie

    Luckily games don't have any movie stars in them or the costs would be even higher!
