Portal 2 = April.
Time fix my timer I guess...*sob*
Man, it was going to come out 10 days before my B-day, but now it's going to come out 2 months after my B-day.
Well, as amusing as it is to see Valve joke about it, they're still disappointing their fan base.
Better to disappoint with delays than with poor games. I mean, it's not like they've ever met a deadline when it comes to one of their major titles ?
It's true, what you say. I'd rather get an amazing game that lasts many years than get an okay game two months earlier that lasts half the time.
Even if Valve released a game that had only been in development for a couple weeks it'd probably still kick balls. I mean, look at minecraft, i know it's not a Valve game but how many people are enjoying that? It's only in alpha.
I'm sure they have their valid reasons, but it's still disappointing to hear we have to wait longer than intended.
I think the problem with talking about "Valve time" is that "features and products many people want" get confused with "things where a quick turnaround is more important than features".
If the distinction is unclear, consider the difference between "Portal 2 on sale" versus "Hammer no longer crashes on startup".
mmmm baby I can't wait to load up hammer when the update comes out
Did you really not see this coming?
If Valve says it will be out in April, that means it will come out in July, unless Valve says it will come out in July, in which case it'll be their big release for Christmas 2011.
Taking all bets here. When do you think Portal 2 will be released?
Also, a little math to help you figure it out
V = Number a sandviches Heavys have eatten * Number of times Valve employees have cheated in private matches / 42;
Orange box release date / (Portal 2's approximate release date + V) + Robin's weight = Portal 2's actual release date.
And now it'll be coming out just before my B-day ... Though there's bound to be another postponing
Valve time... postponed to jully = postponed to christmas holidays
Honestly, I did see something like this coming, but I didn't expect the delay to be announced this soon, I could see Mid-next month, but, meh.
lol, Valve delay announcing game delays.
You should load it up now. You'll have a LOT more opportunity to do so currently, when mapping BEFORE the patch comes out.
Well whenever it comes out, it should be worth the wait.
Actually, no. They managed to release L4D2 on time so I was starting to have some faith in them, but I guess this is a "bigger" game.
Well, I'm just happy they're not rushing it.
It's crazy, it is.
But really, I reckon it's a good thing that they're delaying. It means people won't start having faith in them, leading to expectations that they'll release on time, leading to nerdRage when they inevitably don't, whether it happens in 2 years, 5 years, 10 years or 20.
