According to a French video Game website Valve's Doug Lombardi would have answered they are developing a F2P game. It would explain the arrival of Free-to-play games on Steam these days: to prepare the gamers for a Valve's made F2P game.
Really....<sigh> Valve does this, Valve announce DOTA2, Valve prepares this Where is Half life 3, it's like you guys are doing everything else but that
People really need to stop b!tching about half life 3! Until Source engine 2 comes I don't wan't to see HL3! I say let them work on their master piece no rushing! this is not some console devs that will pump out games every year for a check! look at BF2 it has been years since.. Until then Dota2 ftw!
and people need to stop b*tching about the Source engine 2 Valve said they aren't working on it, they want to keep upgrading the engine they have now, like how they improved it with Portal 2. Fair enough work on a master piece but your trying to say they can't give us any info on it or even officaly announce it.
"Where is Half life 3, it's like you guys are doing everything else but that" And then when they announce that, and they announce a far off date, people will complain about that. Then complain about why there isn't enough info. Then complain that it didn't live up to the hype somehow. People complain why games are being pumped out so fast, and yet they want to be needy on getting info of other games.
People could be hyped up for a game with or without info and in the end they could still say it didn't live up to the hype so what you've said dosen't make sense. Yeah people only usualy complain when a game gets made in like a year. Look at Uncharted 2 which came out in 2009, the thrid game is coming out in 2011...that's two years. It's only the games which get made in a year like for example Call of Duty that people really complain about.
"People could be hyped up for a game with or without info and in the end they could still say it didn't live up to the hype so what you've said dosen't make sense. " You realized that falls under what I just said right?
Patience is a virtue my friend. Valve will do Half Life 3, but just be patient and you'll get it. Enjoy their other great games.
Valve got themselves into this in the first place. People have every right to be angry that this game is taking as long as it is (or being pushed to the back burner, more likely) when they left us with a HUGE cliffhanger in the second episode. We're stuck smack dab in the middle of a story arc because they made the ridiculous decision to divide the franchise into episodes to begin with. Now instead of the quick resolution that another episode could provide, we've been waiting for four years with no indication that they're really even at work on it.
and reading such post: http://n4g.com/news/788638/... confirms the rumor!
So they're making another free to play game? O.o
Hell yeah! Alien Swarm was pretty cool for a totally free game.
Was a bit too short-lived. I don't know why Valve keeps using the atrocious L4D-style mod system instead of the older TF2/CS type system where you can join a custom game, and any missing files would be auto-matically download. Managing all those add-ons manually is too much of a hassle. Has there been any good custom campaigns for AlienSwarm?
Stop whining "wheres my HL3", it will come when valve is ready, now stfu.
U mad bro?
Not really, I just get tired of seeing the same thing everytime there is a story on Valve, "where Hl3". It's not like they aren't working on it...use your heads for a sec, dumbassess
I know right, it's like they think Valve dedicates all there resources at once toward a single title. I'm sure they are working on more than one thing which includes Half Life 3, this, DOTA 2, and maybe another L4D.
off topic: who is that guy in the logo? I've always wondered that. both logos, actually. on topic: I've never played the first DOTA, is that a good game?
I think they just took images from random people. There's an article somewhere on the net about it's backstory. One has a valve on the head (open your mind?) another has a valve on the eye (open your eyes?) EDIT: Quick google search: http://forums.steampowered....
ah! thanks for that.
Dota 2 could be F2P right? Seems like a pretty likely candidate what with LoL etc
That's what I was thinking. I certainly hope it is, and they use a similar business model to League.
Why would you care? Since you are just going to pirate it anyway according to your other posts. I feel bad for all of the developers you cheat and steal from. :/ What a crook. OT: Sounds interesting.
F2P games are a great move in this economy and can help bring back PC gaming. Microsoft is doing this with AOE and I can see Valve doing this with DOTA.
Valve has said a few times that NO info on HL2 ep3 will be given until AFTER DotA2 is released. So stop bugging them about HL2 ep3 but ii's OK to ask them when Counter Strike 2 is coming out. lol
