NowGamer: "Ex-Valve developer and creator of Counter Strike Le Minh has revealed that, yes, Half-Life 3 is a thing."
Can you imagine the day Half Life 3 is actually announced? I'm scared the space-time continuum will be disrupted by the tears of all us nerds.
lol! I'm not sure we can handle the announcement! :)
Just imagine what will happen if it turns out to be a flop/disappointment (highly unlikely). I'm pretty sure the internet would break.
With 75 Million Steam Users and counting the possibility of a Valve game ever flopping is 0%.
^^^^ I mean't flopping as in being a let-down/not a good game, not financially flopping :p
Why would you even...? Some men just want to watch the world burn.
Don't say that!!
Yes it will be a dispomint the hype is too big. Let's remember its an fps everyone is too cool for fps now ah days. Not me tho I will play it and love it.
It will be a financial success at least, depending on how long it's "actually" been in production. As for the reception, I can't imagine that anything could possibly live up to the expectations that people have after 10 years of anticipation. Mind you, I thought the same thing about Portal 2, and that was fantastic, so who knows.
This. The hype for Half Life 3 will be one of the hugest let downs in gaming history when it is announced. For example, Diablo 3.
If they finally develop a new Source engine then maybe they could finish the damn sequel, I mean its only been 10 years why hurry!?
After how many countless FPS games and other stories we as gamers have gotten since Half Life 2, will part 3 even have the impact it once did way back when??
the internet will crash....
the internet will cash
Half Life 3 confirmed! ;)
I used to find that meme funny, but then I took an arrow to the knee.
It's so cliche that I had to say it. I don't really think it's funny either.
Half-life has now become a cult classic, and not an AAA status game anymore. It has skipped an entire generation, and the general gaming community as a whole has forgotten about it. Half-life's popularity is running off shear vocal-minority hype only present on the internet. The game is dead. Even Valve said that themselves, but the Half-Life cultists just loves dragging it out.
LOL wrong. Firstly, there are no "generations" in PC gaming. Secondly, Half-Life is not running off of vocal-minority. It's not a cult classic. It's a gaming classic. And is still the bar of quality for singleplayer FPS experiences to date.
@Septic Half Life 3 was announced, and released. If you don't think it's released then you're in part of the fractured space time continuum! ;-)
Ex-Valve developer and creator (attention on EX).
You crazy bastard... You might as well try and divide by zero!
I just don't care about this. I know Millions of people do, but this is "ehhh" to me compared to what other Video Game news is out there. * 6-7 years ago this would have been epic. It's only basically a long term upgrade for Counter Strike players.
Half live has been game of the decade for twice so... yeah
once and if HL3 is confirmed, i am taking a week off work to play every HL game released, for the 4th time. the HL series is the best ever created. id love someone to argue that with me.
HL3 will be released only when Valve says. the FPS genre has only been drove forward by Valve.
No one is believing this by now are they? I waiting for valve to say officially they are working on it, I'm not getting excited over nothing.
This. Fool me once...
Oh damn Half life 3 is work on? Kam.................e......... .e..eha!!!!!
Dream comes true ~
Dont play with my feelings....
I have lost interest and by now it probably would turn out shitty anyway. Half Life 2 is still one of my all time favorite games, such a shame they just decided to ditch it like they did, portal is cool and all but it was no replacement. To be honest I don't know why they didn't just make Half Life 3 and have the elements that portal had, adding a entirely new puzzle element to an already great series, instead they just scrapped it altogether.
I'll only believe HL3 is "being worked on" when I have purchased 9 copies of the game and finished all of them separately and discussed it with my friends
Haha. This morning's laugh, that.
Ya, he still thinks he has friends!
Fallout 4 confirmed.
Why can they never just answer yes or no? Always have to dance around the question. I'm in agony here!
The next-gen is here, what are you still waiting for? Highest end GPUs with 4-5 tfolps of graphics processing power that can actually be bought at a reasonable price are on the market as well, we're just ready to get blown away one more time.
FINALLY the dawn of the day i have been waiting for is nigh!
Again? That was cool 2 years ago, now it's not funny anymore
The world, the characters, the story, everything was just top notch in that game. Just imagining it on next gen consoles gives me the chills. We dont go to ravenholm!
The race is on, Doom 4 vs Half life 3.
At this point HL3 cannot live up to all the hype and built up anticipation. Valve waited WAY too long. I'm not saying they shouldn't make it but there are going to be some disappointed people when it's released. People are expecting it to be the greatest game ever made.
Honestly Im at the point that I feel so teased about it, that the day it comes out Im probably just hold off on getting it.
Wait a second, how recently were these concepts seen? Shortly after EP.2 released, there was something like 2 or 3 concepts released. Then nothing for a few years. Then there was a bunch concepts leaked, that were confirmed by Valve, but that weren't being used anymore, or something. So I'm wondering when these were actually seen and if they are the concepts that were leaked a few years back. Because the way he described them mirrored my initial reaction to them. I'm pretty sure HL3 is still a thing. What kind of 'thing', I'm not sure. On some level, my interest to know what happened with its development is right up there with the actual game.
That's just sick. This is like stealing candy from a baby and then dangling it in front of it's face, and just as the baby is about to grab it- it's snatched away again and eaten in front of him.
Looks like hell just froze over and pigs can now fly
Half-Life 3 Confirmed !!! http://img.pandawhale.com/p...
lame story! Gabe has said many times that were workng on Ricochet 2 aka Half Life 3. L4D3 was already a green light game that will launch slightly before HL3
And here I was, thinking valve couldn't count to 3.
They can't. But they found a work around. Half-Life C will be released in 2016 and will be the greatest game of all time.
