In the process of organizing a time for a phone interview regarding Portal 2, Chet Faliszek had something interesting to say to News.com when asked about Half-Life 2: Episode 3. The conversation that was held went something like this:
Everyone knows it's coming eventually, and that it'll again be a video game that hits award winning levels of amazing. Valves is just content to troll the gaming community with no news of it except teasers. Hopefully when they announce it's like six months from done or something.
I have given up on ever seeing HL2:E3. What the fuck man? I played HL2 on the ORIGINAL Xbox! Christ.
I've grown tired of the way that Valve is handling the Half-Life series. Fans have watched them pump out games like L4D and L4D2 while not a word will be said about anything Half-Life related. After the amount of time we have waited for more Half-Life, the next game better completely blow minds, or else Valve will end up looking very bad in the end.
I thought the idea of these episodes was so that we wouldn't have to wait another 6 years for a full Half-life game. It's already been 5 years since Episode 1!
I half expect them to release it as halflife 3 episode 3. You know like make a pun of the three and have it be both. An epic end to the story their crafting. That said it better be like 30+ hours.
Well save some of that HL2 ep3 Rage because Valve will release Defense of The Ancients 2 before they release HL2 ep3. HL2 ep3 looks to be a 2012 release if we can get the developers to stop playing Team Fortress 2.
come onnnnnnnnn (fry) !
Haha, that's messed up...
hahaha - and this is why Valve is simply just cool :) thumbs up!
Oh god, youtube now moves to n4g? Thumbs up if you think so!
Thumbs up if you think im an attention whore!
Fairly simplistic. The retarded journo said the source came from news.com/ It was news.com.au
Oh okay sorry I basically skipped that bit and just read the conversation.
Valve needs to die. Motherfuckers won't give us Episode 3 already.. To think that I paid for Episode 1 and 2 but I still can't get a proper ending.
Valve trolling? Nothing new. They claimed the whole point of the "Episodes" was so fans wouldn't have to wait ages between games, but it's almost been four years since EP2. Doesn't matter though. Portal 2 exceeded my expectations of the content it'd have (cross-platform co-op? co-op at all? yep, day-one buy), so I'll let this slide for now.
so then maybe its Half life 3, and not episode 3?
also if you buy the PS3 version you get a free PC copy.
This isnt even funny anymore. where the hell is this game? episodic content was going to cut down development times and give us more quicker. its been what, 5 years since Episode 1? While its a bad comparison due to poor game quality, but how many Call of Duty games have they released in that same time period?
I feel ur pain but its not like its duke nukem vaporware status yet. And tbh, u know that when it does come out its gonna blow everything else out of the water. Patience patience patience. It will release....
they could atleast give us some trailers or something.
valve will come out with a half life system with every genre of game based off half life. half life golf, football, rpg, rts etc. this is why its taking so long I had a long talk with them recently.
well we'll have to wait for this and Duke Nukem to get anounced someday... "hey dude, Duke was already anounced..." WHAAAAAT!!!
