    Half life episode 3 prediction and general rambling thread.

    So, on typical valve time, we've been told fuck all.

    I can't be the only hardcore HL fanboy here so has anyone got any ideas what's going to happen in EP3 and any clues?
    Reddit is no use apart from random gabe quotes where he refuses to talk I can only assume they're working on it and it's the best kept secret since god knows what? Right?
    I can't be the only one that died a little when eli died, right?

    HL3 or EP3? :cripes:

    Valve's business philosophy is great at making interesting games, awful at actually getting them made. HL3 will never exist.

    But it will pretty good if it does.

    It's vapourware and we should probably accept that fact.

    Half Life 2 came out in 2004. that was 8 years ago. It is now currently possible to hold a conversation with a person that was born before Half Life 2 was released.

    Since Half Life 2 was released Britain has had 2 different prime ministers.

    Since Half Life 2 was shown at E3 in 2004 we've had 3 Olympic games

    It's been 6 years since the Human Genome project ended.

    Madeline McCann was kidnapped in 2007, 3 years after Half Life 2 was released and 5 years before the present day.

    Duke Nukem Forever came out eventually though.... and that should *not* make you optimistic.

    It's not happening boys and girls.

    You're an idiot if you think this sequel isn't coming out.
    Not only does this publisher/developer have 10x the budget anyone else has but the market is fucking ginormous,

    Well, silly me for thinking the lot of them has already died of old age.

    I'm torn.

    I want a continatuation because holy fuck, however, hl and hl2 are probably (haters pls, jelly?) are easily the biggest markets right now.
    HOWEVER, as much as it'd break the immersion and storyline, eli...dad....i love you

    So much time has passed we'll probably be getting HL3 and not EP3. Knowing Valve they were probably half done with EP3 six times before scrapping everything.

    No other game has ever come close in my eyes.

    I have confidence that it will eventually come out, but who knows when.

    I want HL2E3, and if the eventual HL3 uses the source engine I will be mad. IT'S TIME FOR SOURCE2 VALVE

    The theory I have is that, like HL2, they want the next one to be the flagship for a new engine, but as much as I want to see HL3 I'm quite happy with them just making new stuff.

    im pretty sure Gabe is just going "we gotta beat Duke, we gotta beat him!"
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    Honestly, the dude needs to go on a diet. I want Gabe alive up to at least Half-Life 5 and that's not gonna be out before 2060.

    Also, I would laugh so hard if they just dropped it onto Steam one day without telling anyone.

    Alyx I miss you.
