    It's quite obvious that when Episode 3 is announced, we'll be firing 200 dollar custom tooled threads at 10,000 posts per minute.

    It'll cost Garry $400,000 dollars to keep Facepunch up...for 12 seconds.

    I'll always love that part in Ep. 2 Where you come out of the mine. The way the light adjusts with the screen, and the areas atmosphere is amazing.

    I have a question.

    Why is it Valve has been all silent about EP3/HL3 for all those years and then suddenly start answering emails claiming there wont be a release this year? Have this been done before?

    VALVe is getting tired of people asking them over and over, so they've just started to say "no, no hl3"

    The hoverboat sections of HL2. All that time to yourself, a big area to explore and lots of nice little events and easter eggs to uncover. No stupid babbling shitface Alyx for at least a whole hour... heaven.

    Because that was a fake email. Valve just ignores Half-Life 3 emails.

    I've always loved this one spot in Water Hazard, right after a G-Man sighting, where there's this fork in the canal and to the right is a Metrocop shooting at you and a small refuge made of scrap (with craploads of headcrabs). The ambience there is so... soothing, somehow.

    fav settings in order
    1. coastal chapters, somehow gives me the feeling that this is still the best source engine game to date w or w/o hdr
    2. canal chapters, ditto (doesnt even have hdr and its still sex)
    3. the mining site chapters in ep2
    4. dark fusion reactor (citadel teleport chamber)
    5. nova prospekt chapters, lighting and hdr just makes everything sexual

    The hoverboat sections of HL2. All that time to yourself, a big area to explore and lots of nice little events and easter eggs to uncover. No stupid babbling shitface Alyx for at least a whole hour... heaven.
    i thought i was the only one who cant stand alyx

    I think Alyx only gets annoying if you replay the game too often. I didn't mind her on my first run and at all but afterwards I got annoyed quickly at "Gordon" here and "Gordon" there and essentially her railroading you. Kinda applied to Portal 2 for me as well.



    Also I kinda have a thing for that house in HL2 you stumble across with the buggy, the one with the executed and burnt-down family and the two gravestones outside. There's just so much about it that tells a story without a single word.
    Gameplay-wise I think I prefer Nova Prospekt as a whole tho, as long as your own ant lions don't get in your way. I think it had quite a bit of visual variety to it, from the tunnels to the cells to the train station with the sarcophagi to the teleport chamber, there were plenty of Combine to shoot, you could use your antlions and turrets and throw manhacks back, you get to fight two ant lion bosses and that one poison headcrab zombie in the bathroom is still creepy to me, so plenty of variety in enemies and also in gameplay from ambushes and dodging turrets to get into position to holding your ground with turrets. You also gain greater insight into the Combine mentality when Breen is talking to them, you learn about another side to Judith and there's plenty of self-telling stories like the Vortigaunt torture cell or the cameras of unarmored Combine soldiers.
    All combined with the creepy atmosphere of a run-down building. Put some sawblades and roller mines there and it's perfect.

    i find it weird that i very much preferred glados as a companion more in p2 than i did with alyx
    mainly because the former doesnt tell the player what to do all the time and she still manages to be interesting on your portal gun

    Am I the only person that actually liked Alyx?

    My favourite part in HL2 is probably the bridge on the coast. That was seriously just awesome. Also the climb up to the top of the citadel while in the pod, I can't even find words to describe how amazing that was. It's the perpetual "clinking" of the pod moving on its rails combined with eerie architecture and grotesque and menacing synths and mutants you see along the way that makes it so intimidating, but then you get one short, beautiful glimpse of the city below before you make it to the very top. "The calm before the storm."

    also it still concerns me that its been almost 2 years since the source engine update came out to hl2 and despite all the complains everywhere and on the steam forums, valve still hasnt fixed all the stretched skybox textures happening on any map that doesnt have hdr (aka 70% of hl2 maps)

    Seriously though, that video doesn't prove the authenticity of the e-mail. And if it was was authentic. It could be another ploy.

    Well my favorite level is definitely Under the Radar in Episode 2. Alyx is with you but doesn't railroad you all the time, you get to drive the bitchin' car and it's relatively open. Plus at the start of that level was the first time Alyx winked at me.

    I may possibly be late with this assumption but what if IGN was referring to the upcoming TF2 Meet the Pyro Video instead of anything HL-related?
    Pyro burning shit --> "Wake up and smell the ashes."

    The upcoming release was also featured in the latest Portal 2 video.

    Ah yes it seems quite a few people had that idea over at the Sensationalist Headlines thread before it popped into my head. Clocks away!

    I suppose if you're really not lying. There is one thing you could do. You could place a shoe on your head while sitting in front of the monitor showing the e-mail while writing your username on your chest (to verify it's really you). Then make a picture of it and post it on Facepunch.

    Of course if you don't do this, it's proof that you are lying.

    If you come to my in this attitude I see no use of giving you more proof that it's no edited and it's true.
    And if everything you see on the internet you think it's fake and the only way believe it is to put a shoe on the head and picuture it... you have a problem.
    I'm am not going to show you more proof, I know the truth by myself and it's you decision to believe it or not, keep having false hopes for announcement soon.

    Your "I don't care what you think" act contradicts with your desperation to prove that e-mail wasn't fake.
