Half Life 3: $500K Target Hit, Time For Gabe To Spill The Beans.

It is no secret that Gabe Newell promised to do an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) at Reddit if the charity drive he was supporting managed to hit half-a-million dollars. To the fans excitement, it did.
Gamers from all corners of the world are now calling for Valve’s co-founder to come out of hiding and deliver his word. It is pretty obvious that most of the questions coming to Newell will be about Half Life 3.

So he should...we've waited long enough

I like Valve but I hate this "online gaming/Social" focus the company has taken over the years.

Imagine if Half Life 3 featured multiplayer...<shivers>

Half life 2 Multiplayer was awesome FYI sir.

It was done AFTER HL2 released as a stand alone game...totally different

They should of done the same to Portal 2 in my opinion, they said they cut the single player story because they needed room for the co-op story.

If they did it for HL2 then I don't see why they didn't make the Portal 2 co-op story free DLC after the main game comes out

The thing is Valve can afford this, many add online modes and that to sell their games so people don't sell them so soon after launch but Valve can release single player games and still make a crap load of money thanks to Steam.

I don't see why they would put such a focus on co-op/social features.

I quite like their multiplayer offerings thank you very much. They fulfill all my multiplayer needs throught out the year.

Dota 2, L4D2, TF2 and Day Of Defeat.

OT: I feel like the question will be answered with the standard "no comment" response. As it says in the article AMA does not = "I will answer everything OR give you the answer you want".

So tone down the expectations to be safe peeps ;)

And if they do it AFTER they've released the game then you'll still get your "multiplayer offerings".

You can't add single player DLC into story driven games like this, sometimes when it's done it feels forced. It's fine with a game like AC because they are told in different time era's but for Half Life or Portal your telling a story...once it's done it's done untill the next game which pushes the story forward even more.

If they can do HL2 Deathmatch as a stand alone title after the main games released I don't see why they can't do it to there other single player games.

DoTA 2, Team Fortress, L4D, Counterstrike are all fine because they started off as online type's just when single player games get added online features if what grinds my gears.

So the time is finally upon our hands. I really hope Gaben will do the AMA really soon!

Gabe we have been waiting for long enough.Now give us Half life 3. and give to us good!

NarooN2178d ago

Can't wait for the AMA. Gabe will troll the shit out of everyone. He probably won't even say HL3, will just talk about Ricochet 2 or something.

Nuk2178d ago

He will announce Half Life: Blue Shift ported to Source Engine. haha.
