Half-Life 3 is Real: New Proof?

OXCGN:

"At this point in space and time, if anyone from Valve uttered the phrase “Half-Life 3″ the entire internet as we know it would implode upon itself and break the space time continuum, truly allowing 2012 to live up to the Mayan’s expectations.

Valve are known for trolling their fans on a consistent basis, but only because they love us so dearly.

They could be up to it yet again, or this could be concrete evidence that Half-Life 3 does in fact exist." (Half Life 3, PC)

Update A website other than the original link of the article now adds to the whole HL3 mystery, and the article reflects this new site.

Hmm... might be an elaborate troll.

The link (www.teamf6rtress.com/mvm/) points to sybolt.com its NOT Steam, check the URL.

You have been trolled by Chase McManning: http://www.facebook.com/mcm...

This guy capitalized on the opportunity to exploit the typo. He registered the domain teamf6rtress.com today, and had it redirect to the fake Steam profile page. He says that he's a software developer, so he's trying to spread his name through rumors and trolling.

This is not connected to Valve whatsoever.

Guys, whether or not this is real... I think it's safe to assume that Half life 3 is "real"... I mean, Valve would be stupid to not at least be working on it....
STONEY4  +   892d ago
Fake confirmed. From the bottom of the page.

"This is a clever disclaimer claiming that this is a parody, and makes no real attempt at spoofing the Steam Community. Spare me, Valve. I am but a humble gamer. I wish not to suffer the horrors of Origin."

Still don't know how he managed to register the domain before the blog post with the typo even went live though. He obviously had time to prepare it. And 6 and O are far enough apart that it's really hard to accidentally cause a typo. Intentional Valve troll?

seriously
This is getting annoying! How many years has it been already? Even the trolling is getting boring
xAlmostPro  +   892d ago
Journalists are getting worse. One sniff of something and they waste an article on it.

How long until the 'update' in the article where you have to put your tail between your legs and say it was false? lol..
user5467007  +   892d ago
We've had more HL3 info along with Source 2 info this year then we've had since we started waiting for the next next HL.

EDIT:

Well I just checked the HL2 Episode 2 forum...apparently it's fake and the Valve employee made a mistake with the link, a typo to be more precise...BUT the domain was registered before the TF2 blog posting was made, how could the guy who made the "fake profile" know what valve was going to link to get a similar domain, how could the Valve employee make a mistake such as linking it to a fake profile AND why havent they fixed it yet.

The plot thickens.

It's getting close... maybe... possibly...
Hooshuwashu  +   892d ago
(In regards to edit) This is classic valve...
Proeliator  +   892d ago
... what?!

The plot doesn't just thicken, it congeals.
Hooshuwashu  +   892d ago
I think the fact that it was posted on an official blog FOR Valve may point to it being yet another valve troll attempt, but it is on the L4D blog... how many people actually look at it anymore?

Maybe the L4D guys wanted to hint?
bub16  +   892d ago
Its going to suck. It will be just like Duke Nukem and GT5 all this hype. Just to be let down with countless articles saying "was it worth waiting the 6 odd years"

Hahahahahahaha, you're a funny troll...or maybe you are just that dumb?
Rubberlegs  +   892d ago
We waited 6yrs for Half-Life 2 and that turned out pretty damn good.
solar  +   892d ago
name me a Valve game that has been released to less then critical acclaim from journalists, critics, players, and gamers. it is hard to find one.
Bloodraid  +   892d ago
It's hard to find one? Implying that there is one. ;)
MYSTERIO360  +   892d ago
Wow if this is true almost 100 hours of gameplay sweet.

Oh no u didnt
FarCryLover182  +   892d ago
Half-Life 3 and Source 2 are 99.9% definitely real.

But it could be a few more years...
TheNocturnus  +   892d ago
Lol, go to the link as described and click on the HL3 icon that the guy is currently playing and the page breaks and pieces start falling.
Braid  +   892d ago
Enough with the "new proof" articles, instead we need a TROLL-PROOF gaming community.
Burnin  +   892d ago
Just clicked the Half-Life 3 icon & it does fall apart...

Funny, trolling or not they sure got us talking about it... very elaborate for the average troll
gaminoz  +   892d ago
Valve is going to really piss people off if they don't eventually release the thing
-Gespenst-  +   892d ago
People just need to stop with these elaborate hoaxes, they'll only rile us up even more, and that's hardly Valve's fault.

HL3 is a certainty for next-gen, so I say that everyone simply be patient. It'll be sweeter that way.
ThreshStar  +   892d ago
How about we all just wait until they announce it? That way we'll know FOR SURE.

This constant gossipy, "Did ya hear?!" nonsense is getting old. Gotta love the August Video Game Drought.
kasser  +   892d ago
Can we report an article for "Trolling" ?
gaminoz  +   892d ago
What an ruin the 'fun'?

Valve are known for playing silly buggers like this, so it doesn't surprise me if it is them or someone pretending.
kasser  +   891d ago
Both links provided in the article are meant for trolling fans and they were created by gamers, not valve. The steam account belongs to a steam gamer and that black-aperture thing is an old troll site.

I did not ruin any fun, I just saved you from wasting time with trolls. Didn't you see Gabe with the knife already? Any more HL fake news and it will increase the gaben rage. What if he started posting self-nudies. While eating his cake. With three candles on.
XXXL  +   892d ago
never played any half life games. Own a PS3. Is the orange box worth a purchase for part 2?
StayStatic  +   892d ago
I'f you don't have access to a PC, then yes defiantly :D, you get half-life 2 + the 2 episodes aswell , which will take you a good 20 hours + to get through all that awesomeness , dam I want to play it now.

The original half-life should run on anything in the last 10 years I imagine , so there's always that route , was also ported to the PS2 & Dreamcast I believe , not sure if it's on psn or not.

Have fun :)

How much is Orange Box on PS3? It was 30$ new on PC and had like 5 games, so yea its a good deal.
Bloodraid  +   892d ago
Well I see it on Amazon for $35 used (The PS3 version). Though you can get everything it features (plus more) for loads cheaper on Steam.
gaminoz  +   892d ago
Half Life 2 was AWESOME. I'm not sure how it runs on PS3 because there were some early issues on PS3 with cross platform titles, but it was great on 360.
-Gespenst-  +   892d ago
Play ALL of them from the start including all expansions. DO IT.
Ravenous_Syn  +   892d ago
Need more proof.
gaminoz  +   892d ago
Valve won't say directly for ages. It'll be a next gen title at earliest imo.
Plagasx  +   892d ago
I'm at the point where I don't even click on these links anymore... -_-
Vladplaya  +   892d ago
Huh, I don't get how author didn't see huge "Bullshit" signed written all over that...
0pie  +   892d ago
its simple, your a unknow shitty website who talk about gaming and you want some hit on your website... Start a shity rumour about hl3
BadCircuit  +   892d ago
Half Life 3, urban legend?
Morgue  +   892d ago
This whole thing has turned into Star Wars. By the time episode 1 came out I was 29 years old and could've cared less. Did I go see it? Yeah I did, first in line the day tickets went on sale for the minight showing and it was the worst movie I ever saw.

All I'm saying is this game better be worth wait if it's ever released.
ninavoljic  +   892d ago
delete this post, this is faked and an elaborate attempt of a troll.
crossplatformgamers  +   892d ago
Gotta love these "conspiracy theories" of random obsure internet clues leading to HL3. Just wait Valve will announce it when they want too, and it will be blatantly obvious when they do. Stop reading into rumors and whispers on the internet.
glennco  +   892d ago
of course it is in development. i don't need fake proof to know it is in development, i have a brain in my head that actually works
kasser  +   891d ago
The article is now updated with another troll link that it was discovered fake like a year ago.
