    lol awesome. Don't they know that Half Life 3 is set to be the first super virtual reality game that actually thrusts you into another dimension and makes you fight for your life?

    Shit like that takes time.

    Awesome initiative, and it must be pretty awesome for everybody that's involved in developing HL3 to see fans this enthusiastic.

    But Valve doesn't know how to count to 3. That's the reason none of their games have a third installment [​IMG] Maybe it's an OCD thing [​IMG]

    Maybe if they stop counting in half-lives and started counting in full lives... Half-Life 3 would be Life 1.5, they can develop that without exceeding the number 2 [​IMG]

    Same here. But I was expecting like 50 people, no much more.

    It's funny how Gabe is there like "lol look at this guys"

    Half-life is one of those games series where a new main series game takes forever to come out. The joke is that two people went to protest, and the founder of the company went out to join them. Valve often jokes around, admitting that they take forever to release a new game.

    I just hope none of them made any fat jokes.

    If one fat joke online = 1 year delay, imagine one fat joke in person [​IMG]

    And when it does finally come out some time after we actually develop portals. we'll still gush over it and not be able to say quite why even if we try to play it just to slag it off.
