I think I have to revise my Valve history lessons because I thought Portal's spiritual predecessor was so interesting to them they hired the team before they finished their game; then put a small team and relatively small budget together to make Portal; and L4D's inspiration came from a Counter-Strike Zombie mod or something.
Too bad they didn't do more with the L4D opportunity of putting a twist on the incredibly stale Zombie game tropes, but aside from TF2 (which has a very strong character cast) their strength does seem to be linear singleplayer.
What if Valve comes on this thread just to laugh at our optimism.
What ever happened to Jeep? He was a member here.
didnt the whole "ubercharged" tf2 character avatars fad originated from fp, then a few weeks later valve started making their own private avatars then about a month or 2 later they shared official ubercharged avatars
Call me dumb, but valve lied in the past about the september 30 hl2 release date, so what if they are lying about not showing anything new at e3? I'm being really optimistic here, but maybe it's possible?
Yeah, probably not D:
I want to believe
realistically IGN probably just wants everyone to pay attention to them
...I've got my towel ready.
Just in case.
It's Meet the Pyro. Mark my words.
Spoiler: it's nothing but everyone(including me) wants to believe anyway.
The IGN tweet is odd though. Looking back through their past tweets they always link back to IGN to some news story. I also don't see any other random game character quotes.
It'd be nice to find out what this nVidia crowbar business was really about. Or did yesterday's GeForce stream already confirm that the crowbar wasn't actually about anything at all? (besides a new graphics card or whatever)
woke up and smelled disappointment
And then nothing happened.
false alarm again...
Every day, a different company gave small hints?
First nvidia, now ign?
They just want to gain clicks. They don't care if they hurt fans. I fucking hate journalism.
What if guys
all these pessimistic people are completely wrong and it is the greatest day in gaming history
I'm not saying it's definitely real but they're not so stupid they would intentionally troll their followers either.
