SteamFirst: At GDC next week Valve has a session scheduled on Tuesday March 3rd at 3PM. Either they are insinuating something or trolling all of us extremely hard..
The 3rd of the 3rd at 3pm... that's 3 3's!
im still expecting to see The Last Guardian before HL3
Don't get your hopes up people. As was pointed out elsewhere its just a panel on "Physics for Game Programmers : Physics Optimization Strategies" http://schedule.gdconf.com/...
half life 3 for oculus rift, that would be something.
I no longer actively care about HL3 or Last Guardian or similar long awaited games. If they come, great. I'm sure they'll be plenty of fun. But if I let myself think about it and build up the hype, they will never live up to expectations.
I don't even need Half Life 3. Episode 3 in the same engine as Episode 2 would be fine. Just wrap the dang story up a little.
woah you guys aren't getting the big picture.. it's 3 3's... so... that means Portal 3, l4d 3 and Half life 3!!!!! :D omgg yayy! every gamer's dream come true :D (cries internally because you know they will never happen)
The game will simply be titled "3" because Valve would love to do this. They don't make trilogies. I think it is part of their mission. Trilogies lull developers into complacency. I am hard pressed to find many games third iteration as the defining game in the series. I think they do this to force themselves to be creative and continue to develop great games. Valve won't deliver the yearly update like EA or Activision do.
L4d3 confirmed! Hl3 is not being developed until the year 3333. Gabes great great greatx33 grand son will anounce it at e3. Then people will be like "what is half live?". Then the game will be cancelled by all 3 devs working on it. All this will be post ww3 when jesus defeats satan. Shame really... Fallout 4 will be out though... Seriously, valve needs to make a next gen game. No rts's or tf2 spin off card games either. Or atleast release the new source engine to the public. I do think they will make an amazing user friendly engine though.
It's neither, they're just congratulating Rockstar for finally having a heists release date.
you have 3 agrees and 3 disagrees. ....why? why is this happening?
That first half made me laugh.... 3 times
3 threes is 9 and you have 9 agrees and 6 disagrees, which is 3+3. Mind...Blown.
No its just a speach about physics programming in games. Don't get ur hopes up
3 3's? HL9 confirmed!
Half Life 9 confirmed. Kidding aside, it's not necessarily a pick and choose what time and date you can give your talk. Sometimes you have to take the day and time that's assigned to you.
I hate valve for this, how long has it been since episode 2? And the thing that's most annoying, if they were to make a successful sequel now, it'd have to feel MILES different from episode 2, which btw as good as it is, still feels dated by today's standards, I'm afraid waiting this long has damaged the franchise forever, there is no way I can see that they can have solid continuity and success gameplay wise given how much things have progressed....
5-3's... Tuesday is day 3 of the week and HF3. Hurray for us!!
Tuesday is the 2nd day of the week, Sunday is the sabbath. Unless you're Jewish, then Saturday is.
Im at the point of boycotting hl3 no matter what, valve have shown their true money making greed face the last couple of years and showed they don't really care about the fans that helped build them up in the first place.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a tech demo for Direct X 12 or something to troll us. Just like the Final Fantasy VII Tech demo on PS3.
When I have controller in hand and I'm staring at the main menu, then I'll believe it. Until then, Gabe N is dead to me.
HL:3 debuts on Valve's new VR hardware. I can dig it.
That's more than likely the scenario. They need something to help move those "Steam Machines." I could only imagine how much money/resources went into developing that hardware, they need monster games to move them. There is absolutely zero interest/hype for the steam machine currently. It's all about Xbone and PS4 at the moment. HL3 and L4D3 exclusive to steam machine is exactly what Valve needs at this point. Otherwise why would anyone buy one of those things over a PC?
There's no way they'd sacrifice their PC install base. Perhaps a steam machine will come with a limited edition of HL3 for free, or some crazy discounted package w/ their VR - but to say HL3 is only available on a machine that isn't capable of true high performance would be crazy. Exclusive to Steam? Yes! Exclusive to Steam machine? No way!
I would cry if Half-Life 3 was exclusive to Steam machines. That would essentially force my hand making me buy a Steam machine. That is probably the only scenario imaginable that would get me to buy a piece of hardware for one game.
HL3 exclusive to the steam machines? Never going to happen. Remember the "steam machines" are nothing more than mini PCs that use exactly the same hardware that a normal computer uses and they're a niche market. They were never designed to compete with the consoles.
It's not half life 3. Gabe has gone on record to say it isn't in development nor does see they need for it. We will never get half life 3 as it won't do anything for valve (actually it could work against them since it has been talked about for so long it is ultimately going to disappoint)
Please don't say such awful things. :(
Well played Valve
Purtty sure they're working on it as we speak.
Well the engine has been in development for over 4 years now, so i think it should be obvious that they are also working on the games. It's definitely time for Valve to show off something even if their games aren't due this year, better late than never right.
But Valve can't count to 3
It would be a great way to kick of their Steam machine. Announce Half-Life 3 along side the Steam machine and available only on Steam.
Left 4 Dead 3 confirmed! Wait, Portal 3 confirmed! Wait, Dota 3 Confirmed!
Counter-Strike Source 2 PC only would be nice
How is this news? What the f*** N4G?
It's actually more news worthy than the white and gold skinned Xbox that is currently the #1 news spot. So sad.
This is about to catch fire... In all honesty if a HL3 would be released, would it even live up to the anticipation and hype? That's almost 10 years of anticipation... that's a lot to live up to. I don't envy Valve, that's for sure.
It has to happen
Been hoping they show off Source 2, i really want a new L4D, it really is time for a new one.. been overdue for ages now as it is. HL3 would be a nice bonus, i'll be picking up a 390/390x GPU when they release, so hopefully something new from Valve soon!
Not convinced. I believe it when I see it.
Wow some HL fans are reaching there. I don't think this has anything to do with HL and if it does, Value is tolling. HL3 would debut at E3
Valve will be demoing "real world applications" so if it's Source 2 then yes it relates to any games they make.
3pm 3rd 3rd Month I think you can start to see why some fans are reaching Three Number 3 clues aswell
Tuesday is also the third day of the week. That's another 3.
Half Life 3 is also three words and consists of 9 letters, which is 3x3. HA is also 8th and first letter, which makes 9, (3x3) L is the 12th letter (4x3) F is the 6th letter (2x3) L again 4x3 I is 9th letter (3x3) F is 6th letter (2x3) E is turned around a 3 I also heard Gabe Newell lost some pounds and weights now 333 pounds.
@Metallox - The people disagreeing with you should look at a calendar sometime.
Day of Defeat 3 please!
Internet might cease to exist if they announce Half Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, DOTA 3, Portal 3, Team Fortress 3 and a new Counter Strike all running on Source Engine 2 with bonuses if you have a Steam Machine and SteamVR
Didn't they say they weren't even working on Half Life 3 yet a while back?
Valve is a pretty strange company, structurally. I doubt anyone there has the authority to what is and is not in the works at any given time. While its certainly been shelved a Source 2 debut maybe what they are waiting for...Or not. They've never really explained why they shelved HL3. Most cancellations give some explanation or have some reasoning behind it. Half Life has none really.
when source engine 2 gets released, hoping for a new garry's mod but also hoping it's compatible with whatever's out for the current version, people are gnna be pissed if it ain't.
Ricochet 2 pls
After this amount of time it better be mindblowing.
I'm happy with the two half-life children I already have. Would wanting a 3rd be being greedy? Jesus gabe lets get this made and finishing this marvel you started.
I don't... What!? Its literally just a few sentences. Wtf kind of article?
The Valve who made Half Life 1 and 2 does not really exist anymore sadly. The company has gone down a different path and away from game development.
Pretty much..There's no longer an incentive to do so. They have gone to god status without it lol.
Well, except for their continued development of Dota 2, Counter Strike Global Offensive, and any projects we don't know about of course.
100% trolling. The title of the Valve conference has nothing to do with Half-Life.
half life 3, left for dead 3 and portal 3 probably all confirmed same day
Got to love Valve for doing stuff like this..lol
Valve be trolling hard...
You know what half life 3 reminds me of? Duke Dukeum Forever. Except its the official announcement that's taking forever to come out.
Important reddit comment for all you hasty hype train passengers: http://www.reddit.com/r/pcg...
Yea. It's a panel about how to program physics. http://schedule.gdconf.com/...
I wouldn't at all be shocked if they slipped a nonchalant confirmation of HL3's existence amidst a technical presentation on game physics.
