Half Life 3 and Portal 3 – Is Valve Trying To Drive Us Crazy ?

HardwarePal : After the Half Life 3 Trademark registration and cancellation we have a new trademark called Portal 3. (Half Life 3, PC, Portal 3, PS3, Valve, Xbox 360)

Well portal 3 is believable but HL3? gaben is trolling us for years.

I guess those people over at Valve are just bored.

Gabe "so how can we rile up the Valve faithful today"

Some Dev at valve "Hey lets trademark and game that we have no intention on making".

Gabe "Sounds good and you get a day off and 3 TF2 hats"

enough with this HL3, L4D3, Portal 3 Trolling (cause we already know Valve can't count to 3) and get Ricochet 2, Alien Swarm 2, and Day of Defeat 2 done first.

What Portal 3? They showed L4D3, not Portal 3!!!

My question is, how do you sit on a cash cow for so long without mentioning it at all? ID knows Doom is their cash cow and talks about it all the time. They have no intention of releasing it anytime soon, but they talk about it.

Yet Valve sits there with tons of fans begging for Half Life 3 and they pretend the series doesn't even exist anymore....

I agree that I dislike how they are keeping tightlipped about HL3, but you gotta consider that their main cash cow now isn't developing games but rather distributing them

That's their business now. However this is an option to push even more money into the pipe. With them releasing the new Steam OS, why not release HL3 first, make a few extra million dollars, and spend it on that?

well what if the new game is not Half life 3 or Portal 3 but its a sequel to both games but in one game under a new name. but portal 3 its just gonna be portal focused. im a lil mixed right now. zoo a lil off topic or random.

Well they do take place in the same universe but I recommended playing Half-Life 2 with the Portal files w/CGI impulse 101 it and play through half-life with the portal gun at you're disposal bye bye combine say hello to Mr flaming barrel.

I refuse to die until I have concluded the half life storyline, something that I have been waiting to finish for nearly a decade and a half

Do you even know what you are talking about?

They already said nothing will change with how Steam currently operates. PC users will still be able to use Steam like before if they choose to. That means if this were true, these games would still be on the regular Steam for PC users without the Steam OS to play.


"I’m pretty happy with my PC Gaming setup, do I have to buy a new piece of hardware now?

No. Everything that we’ve been doing on Steam for the last 10 years will continue to move forward."

Just read the FAQ's they put up about the Steam OS and their machine plans. How dumb would that be anyway when they have built their entire empire from PC users to make games they supported exclusive to their boxes only. It would be a horrible business move on their part.

They are just testing the waters with these steam machines also, they are literally just PC's anyway that run the Steam OS. I can't imagine they will sell well, Steam OS is a good idea but the whole Steam machine and that controller seem like a waste of time and money.

My main issue is they are claiming these Steam machines will get the support that Windows has and that you can even use your favorite multimedia programs also, when even MAC's don't have the full support Windows has now and MAC has been around longer.

Just my opinion though, I just don't think they will get that kind of support. So I'll just stick with my current gaming PC's with Steam installed on them. Not saying the Steam OS won't be better for gaming, it very well could be but the fact stands that not every single PC game is on Steam or going to be compatible with this new OS.

The only way to get around that is by using a PC with Windows already installed and steaming your game to a PC with Steam OS installed. To me that just seems kind of pointless. All my PC's are connected to TV's already anyway.

Back in the days when CRT's were the only displays with high resolutions long before the term HD was even used that might have worked better. Hell my old arse Diamond NEC CRT could get some crazy resolutions above 1080p and could run at 120hz long before any TV's could do either. Now since TV's are basically as good and better than CRT's and some of the best PC monitors, I have no need to use PC monitors anymore. I use HD TV's for everything.

i don't know if im the only one but i found half life boring.
yeah the gameplay is great, story is good but it just doesn't appeal to me.
but then again, there are people out there who never got into the uncharted series. doesn't mean its crap.

i could care less what valve does, they could close down tomorrow and i wouldn't miss them.
