IGN has literally nothing to gain from a random twitter post hinting at HL3, they didn't link to an article, they didn't even link to some youtube video on their YT page, it was just a quote, they gain nothing from it.
To add to atlas, since dota2 is going to be f2p i'm pretty sure once the remaining "big" heroes are released the game will be released, the other smaller heroes trundling along afterwards. That could be by the end of may, or start of June.
I remember some of the first screenshots released were actually orange developer textured maps.
I saw 72 new posts this morning, you guys gave me a fucking heart attack.
So, has anyone tried emailing Valve and asking them what's up with the IGN tweet?
What are the chances that HL3 will have Kinect support?
EDIT: Not that I WANT Kinect support, I just wonder if it will have it.
From Garry's twitter:
It's an official subset of the HL2 Orange box website, so i have no fucking idea what to think - has this been around forever or am I missing something?Garry posted:
Fairly recently discovered url.
Im just wondering, but has Valve ever had a time where no games where in development?
I want to believe.
300 mb update on HL2 EP2, real or fake? a friend told me that.
There is no update.
Retcon Eli back to life!!!
GIVE ME HALF LIFE 3 GABEN
I HAVE FED YOU MY DAUGHTERS FOR LONG ENOUGH
But yeah he's got a lot of character strings attached to him, so "ripping him out" is a very effective and reasonable method of setting the tone for the supposedly darker and more horrifying sequel.
I'm kinda concerned what an effect it'll have on Alyx as a character tho. In Episode 2 she was kinda there, but mainly just support to guide Gordon a bit. In Episode 1 she got a significant emotional development scene after the scary train ride, and in Episode 2 she had to overcome her new fear of Hunters. Now her family's dead and she'll probably have to be the one to tell it Judith of all people.
Hope they don't make her snap in Episode 3, I think she's more useful for adding a human element to the scene without drawing all that much attention to her personal character arc. But it does seem like it's all leading up to something.
What do you guys think could/should/shouldn't happen?
Portal 2 was announced unexpectedly.
Yeah, I trust that Valve will definitely come out and say "yep ep3 be happy"!
Seriously, don't be daft. I'm 90% certain there's gonna be a Half Life announcement this E3.
I hope she gets mega-pissed at the combine and does some cool as melee combat near the end with like a hunter or advisor or some shit, and just beats the shit out of it, possibly dying in the heat of it, but smiles at Gordon and says "Good luck Freeman, you're gonna need it".
She later comes back as an advisor and you use her as a method of transport!
Can I ask why people are all crying about whether it's 'Ep 3' or 'HL3'?
It hardly makes a difference to potential length (five years and they wouldn't dare give us anything shorter than HL2) or potential plot (we already know this is the last part of the Gordon/Alyx/Combine part of the series).
