    I don't really have much to say about this, but I'd like to draw your attention to the bottom of the second page of this

    Could it be?
    Finally?

    I guess we'll just have to find out :toot:


    source

    Managed to find an English Source here

    It's also better.

    Apparently Valve DID ask for it to be on the list, but a few moments ago requested it to be taken off :huh:

    The list says Half Life 3 and Dragon Age 3.

    However I think the officials for Gamescon says it's not their responsibility to make sure the list is verified. Also Valve is quite secretive on stuff like this and I doubt they'd just throw their game on the list.

    Dragon Age 3, we know it's happening and such so it's not THAT outlandish although it's a bit odd they'd announce it at Gamescon and not at E3 a couple months ago. The EA conference would be prime for it.

    Um, that's interesting too. Thanks for pointing it out.

    I'd speculate it's either a port (PC, Vita, Wii U are in the cards) or a special edition re-release. The game sold quite well for Atlus in America, actually I think it's one of their best selling titles ever in the States, so it's unsurprising to see more of it pop up.

    EDIT: There are some silly mistakes on there. Metal Gear Solid Snake Revengeance sounds legit.

    Also they list War of the Roses twice. I guess people are really hyped for it.

    Also why would Blops: Declassified listed under Sony and not Activision?

    Otherwise most of these titles sound like they would fit I guess.

    EDIT 2: It's also odd that Valve would bring Half Life 3 but wouldn't show off Dota 2. I guess with CS: GO coming out before the conference (I think?) they wouldn't need to demo it any more but Dota 2 has been their go-to thing for the past few conferences. It's still evolving, highly popular, and they can always demo some of the upcoming heroes they'll have.

    AKA "we wanted a surprise reveal but we fucked it up".

    I seriously doubt HL3 showing up but DA3 seems to make a bit more sense. It's been a while since DA2 and it looks like most of BioWare's other projects are cooling down (Mass Effect 3 is just on to some story DLC and isn't trying to fix the ending any more, TOR is just going F2P in a while and that's about it, unless you count Generals 2 but that seems rather forgotten already).

    Only possible reason is that Sony are publishing it just like Nintendo published some big named publsihers games but seeing it's CoD I'd doubt that Activision would want a cut in profits unless Sony are the ones funding it.

    Pretty much what I was thinking, although wasn't it last year that Gabe said that HL3 was actually in dev. but was a total nightmare or something?

    HL3 has been in development for years, they're just striving for perfection. Valve doesn't fuck up when it comes to games, especially when it's the most anticipated sequel in gaming history.

    If you think we're going to get a Half Life 3 announcement at Gamescon, you're going to have a bad time.

    Well, huh. Jagged Alliance online? XCOM Enemy Unknown? UFO online? Isn't UFO and XCOM one and the same? Maybe they're not, seeing as they're listed under different devs/publishers though...

    And why are they reviving squad-based tactical games anyway? Not that I mind, I love the genre. Just surprised. I thought it's generally considered a niche genre.
