How I learned to stop pining for Episode Three

Michael Corbisiero writes: In May of 2006, Half-Life 2: Episode Three was announced. It was said that the project would be wrapped up and pushed out just in time for a Christmas 2007 release.

I had no idea what Valve Time was. I didn't have much experience with the company. I had yet to plod through the five stages of grief over the release of a game. It has been nearly four years and the game’s whereabouts remain unknown. What began as a seemingly final installment to the story arc set in motion by Half-Life 2 is now a puzzling affair.

I initially felt the need to demand to know what was going on at Valve. Now, I'm content with waiting. This is how I learned to stop pining for Episode Three.

We all know the really reason is they can't stand the fact that Duke Nukem took longer to come out so they are going to develop ep3 for 16 years...

Gordon Freeman finally gets laid.

I will be 'pining' for EP3 and HL3 until they release.

Hopefully 'if' Black Mesa Source ever gets released, then that will be enough to keep us tide over till Episode 3 (or Half Life 3, or whatever the hell Valve decide to call it) gets a proper reveal.

They want the last scene of the series to have Gordon say one word and will thus spend the next decade looking for the perfect voice to utter it :D

Him talking would be epic

Valve need to give their characters a voice, I'm not all that bothered by Gordon since he was a mute back when Half life first came out in 1998.......but Chell from Portal she needs a voice

But yeah Gordon for example speaking to Alyx in the final scene would be amazing. They need a good voice actor though


They are using the Pixar marketing strategy...wait 10 years before doing the sequel so everyone will be ultra hyped and be super impatient to get there hands on it and will guarantee to be GOTY and sell a dozen of million copies...
