Half Life 2 is GOLD!

No, really! Vivendi has even announced a release date, or as they call it, "a planned retail street date of November 16th, 2004." In other HL2 news, ClanBase has closed down their CS:S ladders do to built-in cheats and unfair gameplay, with no way to stop it. I really hope Valve uses Punkbuster, Valve's in-house cheat detection just isn't good enough. November 16th is also the release date of Eminem's new album, now I know how to spend those two Best Buy Bucks I got from McDonald's.

Men of Valor MP Demo

The MoV MP demo is out, it's really nothing special. If your CPU is below 1.3GHz it won't even load them game, which is complete BS. My 1.2GHz (Dual) Athlon MP can certainly hold its own against a 1.4GHz P4 any day. To get around that arbitrary rule, add -CPUSPEED=1400 to the end for the Target field of the shortcut properties. I was able to play at 1280x1024 at the highest detail the demo allowed, without even a jitter.
