Peter Molyneux’s Son Doesn’t Seem to Care About Half-Life 3 Anymore

Kotaku - Peter Molyneux has been a bit of clock-watching lately. Right now, the game designer behind the Populous and Fable game franchises has been watching time tick down on the Kickstarter for the Godus project from his 22Cansdev studio. I spoke to him about raising money for Godus but also asked him about his son Lucas. Does he know when Half-Life 3 is coming out yet? (Half Life 3, PC, Peter Molyneux)

He not the only 1, sadly i have too.

Valve has dragged this on for far too long, only to release it in 2013 as Valve Box's Exclusive.

F* That.

If it was a Vale box exclusive or Steam exclusive and their console is releasing Q1 next year don't you think we would of heard something from it by now. I'm not doubting it but I really want something on Source 2/HL3 now

They should of announced it at the end of the VGAs or annouce it at the first day of the next year...Jaunary the 1st

^ You really enjoy that gif.

Yeah it really does seem like that's what they're going to do. But so far what I've seen about the Steam Box points towards a closed platform PC, which is definitely not a good thing. Especially when Valve themselves publicly criticize closed platforms. I really don't see anything good coming from the SB, I see it screwing a bit with the console market, and I also see it affecting the normal PC gaming market.

But when I think about it, what else could we expect? Every time Gabe Newell or anyone else from Valve talks, they're always talking about ways to capitalize on their products, and how to be more profitable. It's always about how to make more money. I never see them talking about how to make better games, or their philosophies behind the games they make, or what message they try to send with their narrative. It's always just about the money. The $75+ hats in TF2 is proof of that.

Have agree, my give a f#$k meter ran out about 5 years ago.

I dont even remember the story that how long its been... Gabe can go F his self with HL Ep3.

Edit: At IAMSUPERMAN - your right the game would probably feel so outdated if it was to release now... remember Duke Nuken and how crappy and boring it felt when it finally released.

I personally do not care either. That genre as advanced so much since the last game that valve would have to prove a lot for me to pick it up. I do not think valve will ever release another half life because so much has evolution has taken place since the last game and also it has been a log time coming that a lot of people will be disappointed in Half-life 3. Valve can prove me wrong but I think that is the reason why Half-life 3 hasn't happened yet

It is near impossible for Half-Life 3 to live up to what all these people have hyped it up to be. They have set the game up for failure or polarizing reactions. I loved half-life 2 and saw it for a good game of the time, but some talk about Half-Life 3 as if it will be the best game ever. There is slight clinging to nostalgia when they believe Half-Life 3 will be the end all be all of fps. FPS just happens to be one of the slower developing genres in terms of delivering a engaging narrative so half-life 2 stood out and was well paced. I am personally a huge Bioshock fan,but would not go to these half life lengths that some fans have.

I think the genre has actually reversed. Games are still being released that give you none of the freedoms we see in Half Life 2. Check out totalhalibut on modern military shooters for a fine evaluation.
ThichQuangDuck  +   706d ago
That is where I disagree if you look at modern military genre you know they are not the peak of narrative interaction. So to say Call of Duty Black Ops 2 shows a decline. Making comparisons to games of today that you know Half-Life 2 will beat because honestly they are not even remotely trying to deliver a fps narrative is not equivalent.

Disrespectful to the great fps' that have advanced the genre. Those including yourself who believe it has reversed are again clinging to Half-Life 2's greatness. Rather than trying to compare it to the best of the modern games today

valve doesn't need to prove a lot with half life 3 in fact the FPS genre has taken a lot of steps back since half life 2

Cool story, son.
GreenRanger  +   706d ago
Molyneux's son must be making Half-Life 4 if he said that.
Like father, like son.
CaptCalvin  +   706d ago
Why would he be if he's probably never played any Half Life?
Sp1d3ynut  +   706d ago
Just 5 minutes ago, if you had told me I have something in common with Peter Molyneux's son, I'd have only been able to guess you were referring to a penis. What a difference 5 minutes can make...
jay2  +   706d ago
22 Cans have done it :D


Who cares about HL3, you've got COD 50 out in a few months guys!

Come on, let's get game number 3 rather than game number 10000000000000000 of a yearly release.

Ok, so we're past caring about Peter Molyneux directly, so now what his children think is newsworthy?

Well this is the kind off stuff I expect from kotaku anyways...
aliengmr  +   706d ago
When they announce/debut HL3 everyone who says they don't care, will care again.
ThichQuangDuck  +   706d ago
you can quote me:
I care about Half Life 3 in the sense that I enjoyed Half Life 2 and have not played the episodes yet. Half Life 3 will be cool,but there have been other advances in FPS narrative since then so it will have competition. I hope it continues to live up to its standard,but will not overhype myself like fans begging for a sequel. Literally begging.

I bet he's the milkmans son instead, Peter is known for his lies
