    This just in from Aperture Science, the big Valve and Portal 2 event to be held at the Regal Theater next to the E3 venue on June 14th has been canceled! Don't worry though, Valve and Aperture promises that the event will be replaced by a surprise!

    Dear Subject Name Here,
    Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Valve to announce the gala CANCELLATION of the June 14 Portal 2 event at the Regal Theater. The event will be replaced by a surprise. And even though the cancellation of the event certainly counts as a surprise, we are pleased to further announce that the cancellation of the event is not THE surprise. However, per International treaties regarding the definition of the word "surprise", of which both Aperture Science and Valve are signatories, the time, date and content of the actual surprise will only become available as you experience the surprise.
    Look at Valve, teasing us with an announcement of an announcement. Let the speculation begin!

    The only thing that could make up for a Portal 2 event cancellation is an Episode Three reveal.

    VALVE, DON'T LET ME DOWN.

    I almost have the feeling that there won't be an Ep3 based on how often everyone at Valve keeps saying, "Episode 3? We've never announced any Episode 3..." with a coy smile.

    I am almost willing to believe it will be a full sequel, Half-Life 3. Either that or there will finally come the Ep3 announcement along with news that the Source engine has been dramatically overhauled with some lovely new visual tech.

    EP3 reveal is plausible, because why would they release a game set in the same universe, three hundred years in the future without explaining what happened to cause the world to look like this?

    Maybe something that isn't Half-life Ep3 but a new game concept.
    But I really hope for EP3.

    But then there is no point in this forum...
    If we remove Valve, we remove Steam
    If we remove Steam, we remove Garrysmod
    If we remove Garrysmod, we remove Garry
    If we remove Garry, we remove This Forum.

    Even though I'm not really that interested in half-life I'd like to see episode 3 if only to see how it all wraps up.

    Where's the source zips?

    I hope it starts out as a Left 4 Dead 3 trailer, then a headcrab jumps through the "screen" and everything falls apart to reveal Episode 3.

    Also the Episode 3 trailer would play to this tune.

    Hey, Zips, remember when you posted an announcement about an announcement about an announcement, and the announcement was CS Beta and everyone raged and your News Bot was removed? That was great...

    Zombies got raped by nature, and the war was so big that nature grew over aperture science. The end. Except, this has nothing to do with it. GOVALVE and their epic trollness! Valve has been seriously trolling us lately. Valve Time's scale should be divided by 1337 or somthing

    Portal 2 is already announced. We don't need more abotu that except a release date. We need fucking Episode 3 - NOTHING ELSE.

    Valve is bought by Activision, so they cancel Episode Three and Portal 2, and start work on Call of Duty : Triassic Warfare
