Hey guys. If your confused about the exact minute you will be able to unlock Half-life 2 and commence play straight away, then keep reading. With compliments to steam, here is some info to help you guys find out where you live (Heh) and when you can play. Ok, well firstly my fellow HL2fanbois you will have to know when VALVe are releasing the game... [color=black]VALVe's timezone is -8GMT or Pacific Time. They're located in the State Of Washington. [/color]HL2 Will not be playable until November 16th 12:00AM -8GMT Time (That's Pacific Time in the US) Use the information above as a type of center of reference. Now you will need to go here... http://www.worldtimezone.com/ to find out where you live (Which shouldn't be too hard) and what your time zone is. I know there will be some of you who won't understand all this, (feel free to ask me by the way) but to help you understand here is an outline, so check here before posting to avoid spam/post of the same thing.These are the prospected release times worldwide...

-12GMT || 8:00PM (Nov 15th) -11GMT || 9:00PM (Nov 15th) -10GMT || 10:00PM (Nov 15th) -9GMT || 11:00PM (Nov 15th) -8GMT || 12:00AM (Nov 16th) [color=orange](VALVe's Time)[/color] -7GMT || 1:00AM (Nov 16th) -6GMT || 2:00AM (Nov 16th) -5GMT || 3:00AM (Nov 16th) -4GMT || 4:00AM (Nov 16th) -3GMT || 5:00AM (Nov 16th) -2GMT || 6:00AM (Nov 16th) -12GMT || 7:00AM (Nov 16th) GMT || 8:00AM (Nov 16th) +1GMT || 9:00AM (Nov 16th) +2GMT || 10:00AM (Nov 16th) +3GMT || 11:00AM (Nov 16th) +4GMT || 12:00PM (Nov 16th) +5GMT || 1:00PM (Nov 16th) +6GMT || 2:00PM (Nov 16th) +7GMT || 3:00PM (Nov 16th) +8GMT || 4:00PM (Nov 16th) +9GMT || 5:00PM (Nov 16th) +10GMT || 6:00PM (Nov 16th) +11GMT || 7:00PM (Nov 16th) +12GMT || 8:00PM (Nov 16th) Hope this helps. Any questions? Just ask. Cheers guys.

Australia=GMT+10 So... that means I'll buy the game on Tuesday morning, and have to wait till 6pm that night before I can play? Or just the HL2 singleplayer?

If I get HL1:S and CS:S I won't need to wait will I?

w00t anyway, once I get the game in my hands nobody will be able to force me to put it down until I can play the thing!!!

Hmmm, your only about 3 hours behind me, so yeah you should be able to play about 3am your time. CS:S Is already out, so no you will not need to wait (Unless you need to update it) to play. HL1:S I'm not too sure about that... I didn't know the were releasing that just yet. Then again, I bought the collectors edition so it HAS to be included doesn't it!

Reeeeehehehh!!!!! S, we in Aus can activate it at 6pm on the 16th, but all the Aus game websites I've checked out are forcing us to wait until Wednesday the 17th before they set it free... Guess that means another day of torture.

Dammit! My long weekend after exams(i finish 'em tomorrow) will be completely wasted. Then again, maybe i should put some effort into defragging everything and blasting what I can to make speed-space.

If anyone knows any Vic stores that will free the game ON the 16th, tell me... I hate Video Games Heaven... more like Hell. EBGames don't have an AU site, so it has the US release date and price. Can't think of or find any other stores.

Hey guys, O.K I bought half life 2 game today at best buy. I am aware of the fact that i cant play until the 16th, but where exactly is the game installed? its not in program files...and teh shortcut goes to steam.exe. How exactly will this work? I dont have internet on my PC, so when i click on teh icon steam gives me an error message. But thats no biggie, i'll just move my PC downstairs for like 30 minutes get connected and then what exactly will happen? I dont know where the game is installed, is it? Will i have to download it? When do i put in my CD Key? Can someone please help me...?
