The Internet Is Freaking Out About A Half Life Update

This morning Half Life 2: Episode 2 updated along with most of the other games that were developed by Valve. The official reason for this update was to add Big Picture support to Valve's different games. But then why was Half Life 2's update nearly 300MB bigger than every other update? That's the question on everyone's mind. And things get even more complicated when you involve the cryptic video posted below.

UPDATE!: As previously suspected. the video isn't related to Half Life. It has been revealed to be a new Machinima show. So at least that mystery was put to bed. Now we just have to wait until people finish digging through Half Life's files.

You can view the official Steam thread where this is all going down below.

Okay, so this story is bunk.

Move on.

This video is for Machinima Respawn, nothing to do with Halflife or Valve.

The Machinima Respawn team have been teasing a change of their channel and the shows they produce for a couple of months now. They've (Sark and APL) bean repeatedly mentioning a "change", and "something big" that's happening to Respawn, but have been unable to give any details. Recently they've stopped uploading their weekly shows, now they upload this.

What is that like binary code or something?

Its actually a live count of how many calories Gabe Newell consumes per millisec.

Trago13371968d ago

Congrats, that's another 3 month delay for half life 3, when will you guys learn lmao.

vortis1968d ago


Even with all the jokes stacked it still doesn't equate to Gabe's weight.

But it doesn't matter, if we were to measure Half-Life 3's delay in Gabe's food intake it would be indefinite.

Let the good times roll...and roll...and roll.

A fat joke a day keeps episode 3 away~

the decoded message reads

"keep waiting motherf$%kers. episode 3 will never come but we will continue to tease you to keep ourselves relevant in your lives. you actually have a better chance of playing duke nukem forever 2 than HL:E3. peace be with you"

There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Bloodraid1968d ago (Edited 1968d ago )

Indeed, friend.

Also, the number of people on here who acting as though binary is some mythical language of the gods is hilarious.

Besides, 'technically' it's not even the binary that matters here. It's most likely to be converted into base-10 or base-16 before being paired up with an ASCII chart anyway.

Bloodraid1968d ago

Yeah, I downloaded it and translated it. It says: "our new world order begins"

The binary reads "Our New World Order Begins" the news article explains a few of the going ons currently happening with this video and the update.

Norrison1968d ago

I can see how that relates to half life, since half life it's an anti new world order game. But it says respawn team

PhantomTommy1968d ago (Edited 1968d ago )

There really isn't any solid evidence to suggest that the video is Half-Life related so I refuse to get my hopes up again. I am very curious about the 300mb update though....
