    I emailed asking what the 10' UI is

    Edited:

    Really can't think of what else it would be than Big Picture though, what else do we even know that Valve are doing?

    Steam Big Picture is a 10' UI, so 10' UI is steam big picture.

    Guys Gabe sounds very sarcastic at the reply...
    I mean... think about it again... if you hear it from someone it would be sarcastic for you...
    And Gabe was sarcastic not long time ago with Ricochet 2.

    Yeah the podcast he did with Seven Day Cooldown lately, that was most certainly not not about Ricochet 2...

    Also in that e-mail he said they're not announcing Half-Life 3, we know Gabe is clever and sneaky and he technically didn't say Episode 3...

    I don't think it's real, it seems unlikely that Gabe would tell Valve's E3 plans to some random guy.

    Imho, fail troll is fail. That honestly does not look or even remotely feel like a Gabe response, judging from my experience with talking to him, this really just isn't his style.

    Edited:

    On the other hand, if it is real, I'll be pretty sad.

    just imagine valve displaying a blank screen at e3 and then you can hear g-man:

    "Time, Dr. Freeman?"

    or something of a similar effect

    I'm pretty sure that the HL-team is in the final stage of development. Why? Because they all grow beards. They did the exact same thing in the final stage of developing HL1 and HL2 IIRC..

    I'm keeping my head held high, but I could really use a hug too after all these years of disappointment.

    Someone needs to make an app called the beard-ometer, where judging by the length of their beards we can tell progress on HL3

    That email could have been taken out of context. Perhaps the emailer was asking about something else beforehand like "Richoshit 2" and so Gabe replied with that.

    That doesn't prove it's real at all. The only thing that can prove it is if Gabe says something about it himself to a media outlet, but I doubt we'll hear confirmation either way until E3.

    Gabe comes on stage, talks about the success with dota2 and cs:go beta at this very moment, decides to announce a new game, it's ricochet 2.

    So at this stage everyone is upset and surprised, probably laughing but they show a trailer of it when all of a sudden the rooms gets quiet and dark and you just hear the gman go "Dr. Freeeeeemaaaan. It has been a while since we last, met."

    The next moments all you hear is screams with a kickass trailer and everyone is so excited.

    My ideal E3

    I think that's everyone's idea. I myself prefer the classic "Gabe on stage, lights dim, huge 3 appears behind him. Crowd goes apeshit, but Gabe simply smiles as 'L4D' appears on the left side of the 3."
