For all of you that have been long awaiting HL2, it seems it might be here now.

"Half-Life 2 Pre-Loading Begins
August 26, 2004, 6:55 pm ยท cliffe

Half-Life 2 pre-loading begins to Steam account holders today. Over the coming days, those who have selected the pre-loading option will have encrypted Half-Life 2 files delivered to their PC. No purchase is required to pre-load HL2, but is required to activate the game. Purchase options will be released soon. Then, the moment the game is made available, those who have pre-loaded and purchased Half-Life 2 via Steam will be authenticated and ready to start playing. For more information, please visit www.steampowered.com."

For all of you have have Steam, just restart and you should download a short patch to enable preload. Then you just preload it from there. Otherwise you can go to "Play Games" and download Half Life 2 preload from there. Currently Steam servers are at maximum capacity and you are unable to preload at this time.

This just sounds like a pre SELL to me.

"Released Soon" on Steampowerd.com is the same as "Released Soon" at Best Buy.

There's no indication that you'd get it any quicker than any other means.

Done. I just left it on at night. If it stops for any reason, just click pause and then continue and it refreshes it for some reason.
