    IDK. It looks like a photo of a photo on a computer screen. My point is that it doesn't look like a game engine at all. (which is good if it's actually HL3 :D)

    The shadow and overall shading is too good to be true. I'd bet it's a photo.

    As nice as it'd be for it to be HL3, it is just a photo. If it's from a game, it's probably not HL3 anyways.

    If it IS REAL, we should see more photos and leaks of HL3 from other people, something like this can't be in silence.

    It looks a lot like the Portal 2 bridge, especially the shading/lighting

    Man, if I ever want to get attention for a website or project, all I have to do is plaster some HL3 logo somewhere or leak a supposed "screenshot."

    valve introduces ground breaking features to upcoming "Half-Life 3" game

    introducing highly detailed handrails that seemingly have no other purpose other than for aesthetic purposes!

    I like how people are saying "It doesn't look like Source though!". I can only say... should it? I mean, if they're working on a whole new next-gen iteration of Source, I can only imagine that their flagship title is going to make full use of its features, and would likely look substantially different to any current Source engine game. Besides, we're all going spoogey over a picture of a railing anyway.

    Hell, it looks like it could have been snapped from Duke Nukem Forever even...

    Hell, I get my hopes up on an uncontrollable, subconscious level every time this game is mentioned. I've gotta say though, this is the first time in years I've been disappointed this many times in a month when it came to hoping for news on the next Half Life.

    I just want to believe so badly at this point. Maybe Half Life 3 was on that list by mistake, and it really wasn't meant to be there because it was a secret press event. Everyone just kept it cool and acted like it was nothing so we'd believe all they hype was fake like it has been. Oh god I can feel the rainbows.

    just spitballing here, but he might be trying to keep it ambiguous enough that he can't get chewed out for violating the NDA while still building hype, mainly with the text accompanying it.

    it could also be a giant red herring that won't lead up to anything and will be debunked in a few days.

    Hey did tip toe around the words 'half life 3' and 'Freeman' by ambiguously breaking half life 3 up and doing the whole fr33man bit. So who knows.

    Technically, it's a picture of a screen. That, or it's a really blurry game where you fight mouse cursors.

    Until Valve announces it themselves, I am not buying into the hype any more. Hell, Game Informer could have a 30 page cover story on it next month and I still wouldn't believe it until Gabe Newell personally says, "It lives."

    ... Alright, I lied. If GI had a cover story, then I'd probably believe it but this is getting way out of hand now.

    The wall looks likes eroded metal.

    Edited:

    If Valve is really tight lipped on this I'm not sure how he could have possibly snapped these pictures

    Unless he was really lucky not to get noticed.

    idk its not like they have armed guards at the doors and clearly its in a dark room

    he probably just slipped his phone out of his pocket and quickly snapped some pics walking by, one of the pics is all motion blurred because he was moving the cam when he took the pic

    The pictures look really candid and unfocused. I could see them being from a hidden camera. Maybe Valve will start requiring a metal detector test for everyone coming in.
