Then again, i kinda saw this one coming......

Gabe found out that there weren't going to be complementary Twinkies & Ho Ho's.

Conloles3105d ago

Well thats disappointing :(

Eamon3105d ago

Is Valve trolling us?

gaffyh3105d ago

Lol, I kinda expected it. I'd guess that they will be incorporated into Microsoft's conference instead.

Nar it was going to be a PS3 release but Gabe forgot to tell the PR team that they don't make PS3 games, and he canned the press release at the last moment before they looked a bit silly in front of people telling them they really don't make PS3 games for the 76th time.

ijkabob3104d ago

I know right?! Why can't they just serve some twinkies and HoHo's for chists sake.

WTF are twinkies and HO HO's Thanks x

ShinMaster3104d ago

Come on guys, lighten up. It wasn't the funniest thing in the world, but someone had to say it.

Brewski0073104d ago

Lol well they probably didnt know how to work "Powerpoint" considering they're afraid of the ps3's architecture.

MysticStrummer3104d ago

Dammit. The only reason I went to comment on this was to make a food joke and I'm eleven hours late... Oh well. I like how the two guys who don't think Blowstuffup's joke is funny are the only two guys who have used a curse word (so far) in reply. Anyone who says "grow the fuck up" might need to look in the mirror. On topic - Valve makes some good games but I don't have much respect for devs who are afraid of different technology, so... meh.

Do you have something against large people? I'm not a big guy but I have a few co workers who are big and they always get jokes about there weight. People need to grow up and understand that people come in all sizes. Or could this be because he does not make ps3 games that you feel the need to say these insults.

I'm overweight and I thought it was funny...It's not a insult its a joke theres a difference.

likedamaster3104d ago

If perhaps Blow spelled 'complimentary' correctly he might've got some more laughs.

on topic/
Why do we have to translate this so called 'cancellation'. I don't buy it. Valve will most certainly show up and blow us all away.

First Portal 2 Event cancelled and then they announced there will be a surprise. Then when everyone started running around yelling "OMG OMG EP 3" they said it's not EP3 but Portal 2 related. And then they cancelled the whole event. Wow. Just wow. I mean how is this possible? There wasn't a 2 month gap between each of these news anyway so either Gabe got aids or Valve just played with us to see our reaction.

Lykon3104d ago

gabe got aids!!!!? lol who would sleep with that ?

Blacktric3104d ago

He gave himself aids. WITH A CROWBAR!

mikeslemonade3105d ago

All it was going to be Portal 2 and another game that basically uses the same 6 year old Source engine.

Akagi3105d ago

Wait, guys! It's Portal themed. They've trapped themselves in a test chamber with a makeshift Portal gun!

BattleAxe3104d ago

The conference Center refused to provide free donuts.

wow, if this is the "surprise", then it is the lamest I've ever had ...

jmd7493105d ago

this is some BS. i hope it's not ture.

Focker4203104d ago

I wonder how much MS payed them to cancel and appear at MS's press conference as a 'surprise'?

Valve will probably make the announcement that Portal 2 will be a timed exclusive for the 360

ZombieAutopsy3104d ago

Highly doubt it would be, Valve tend to take care of their own first (PC gamers).

mercenarie3104d ago

what a long wait for half life episode 3.. you know if valve stopped feeding this pig it might actually give him an incentive to finish up their games.

Keanu7773105d ago

Is this confirmed? I can't believe that.

narked3105d ago

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt3105d ago
