Half Life 2 has not been delayed! I guess!
Apparently there was a miscommunication, and someone got the idea that the game was delayed. As far as Valve is concerned, the game is still on par for a September release!
The individual responsible for the mistake is consequently being dragged into a dark alley by his bellybutton, where he will be summarily executed by a crack team of golf club wielding monkeys.
Well… in MY world, anyway.
