    When I bought my Radeon 9800XT graphics card the HL2 coupon was missing from the box. I e-mailed the supplier and they said to contact Connect3D and they would sort it out. So I mailed them but didn't get a reply. On Sunday I sent a snotty e-mail to them threatening to return the card and get my money back. On Monday I got a message saying that they could send a coupon if I could send proof of purchase, so I sent a copy of the order confirmation e-mail that I got from the supplier. That was at 4.00pm yesterday afternoon. The coupon arrived this morning at 8.00am!!! Now that's what I call service.

    errr,no disrespect,but surely if it was good customer service you wouldnt have had to chase them up and send a "snotty letter":confused: but,admittedly that was the fastest postman in the west!

    yeah true Mr Jason B

    i agree. but mistakes do happen from time to time and the best way to know how good a company is, is to see how well they cope when something isn't quite 'right' :)



    i'm gonna need a massive upgrade to play hl2 i think tho :(







    need...more...money... ;) lol

    Yeah, that's how I saw it. In fairness the coupon should have been there in the first place and they should have given me the courtesy of replying to my first e-mail, but after that they performed superbly. I think there's a lesson there somewhere for all component suppliers.

    Unfortunately the coupon does not indicate the intended release date for HL2, in fact there is absolutely no reference to any kind of timeframe except to say that the game will be delivered within 4-6 weeks of becoming publically available. Bah!

    lol :D

    don't joke tho! :eek:


    Mr Jason B: i also heard around april time-ish but i can't see it myself. i'm guessing may at the earliest :rolleyes:

    CENSORED: i'm not surprised really, that there is no release date or details on the coupon itself as it doesn't tie them down to any specifics...


    it can't come soon enough imo :)







    the wait goes on...

    Driver Heaven held an interview with Gabe Newel, you can read it here http://www.driverheaven.net/dhinterviews/gabenewell/ but it mainly deals with technical matters and stuff that has been reported previously. Odd that the delay is not mentioned, and strange that the obvious questions are never asked.

    There is a game show on SKY1 can't remember the name (game zone?)of it but it claimed that the release date will be Feb 22nd or 24th. It was supposedly leaked by ATI as they are putting it out with a graphics card. Like all rumours take it with a pinch of salt.

    Hey all mr jason b's bro here, im a regular visitor of halflife 2 sites and forums.
    There is no offical release date as yet, The SDK is reported 2 be released in the next few weeks so i think the game will be out about april- may mark.

    And im not a 100% but i think the game you get free with ATI cards is only the single player version.

    I read somewhere that E3 (is that coming up ? It's E3 or something like it) would be when we'd hear about a release date. And I'm guessing that's after April.

    Back to minesweeper then.
