    Portal 2 bundled with Ep3. Also, L4D3 announcement. Oh, and it could also be a Minecraft announcement since Minecraft and Valve were in the talks.

    believe.

    Did these guys forget that Valve revealed Portal 2 for PS3? Which was related to the manner they announced there will be a surprise and that Gabe's previous comments on the PS3 certainly did make it a surprise.

    But then again why would a site called Computer and Video Games know about what happened at a small and completely unrelated event such as E3?

    DotA will probably be one of the "surprises".

    4th surprise. By 12 months they mean 2 and a half years. Lucky bastards with their own time-space continuum...

    I think if anything Valve actually revealing all three surprises within the 12 months would be the surprise.

    It's not a surprise if you already know what it is.

    Still hoping/dreaming for Source Engine 2, Steam for Linux and Half-Life (Something with a "3" in the Title [​IMG]).

    Though I'm also pretty shure that none of these will be one of the three surprises. But hey, I can dream [​IMG].

    Would be awesome if Valve supported Notch. Maybe it'll make him get off his ass and fix SMP.

    ily rly notch.

    Big surprise from Valve in 12 months?



    Perhaps Gabe is on a diet and will way a tad less in 12 months?
    I'd sure be surprised.

    EP3 bundled with Portal 2, no change in Release date and EP3 is based on the new Portal Modified Source Engine (dynamic lights everywhere and stuff, you know what I mean)
    Also minecraft on steam but that might not even be one of their big suprises.

    12 months? Never heard that one before. I wonder what it'll be in Valve time.

    I really think Valve is the greatest game company there is. Mostly because they strive after value(experience, knowledge, happy customers and money) and not just money and it really shows.

    Quoted from Steam wikipedia. I would be really psyched for Linux support. The only reason I don't use my Linux partition that much is because of no game support. Since I usually only play Steam games, I would shift back to Linux in a heartbeat.

    Agreed, Valve is a gaming company for the gamers. They embrace mods and community work in such an astounding way.

    I personally hope one of these is a new game and not a sequel. Not that their sequels are bad, they're great, but when Valve makes and new series or game it's usually very cool. Left 4 Dead was an awesome series they pulled of the ground. I would love to see what else Valve can do for first person games in general.

    Both PC games, both sequels. (Ok, one of the games is a console game too.)
