According to Steam: "If you have purchased a copy of Half-Life 2, we are sorry you are still waiting to play. This is not Valve's choice. Vivendi is insisting that the game has not yet been released, and has threatened that Valve would be in violation of its contract if we activate the Half-Life 2 Steam authentication servers at this time. Thanks for your patience and we will update you when we have more news to share." Well, it seems that Vivendi is still being a piss-ant about HL2, and now it has gotten me paranoid that the game will be delayed again! Any other comments on this?
