    So about two days ago, a random website popped up with a supposed countdown for Left 4 dead 3. Now immediately the first thing that probably pops into all our heads is,"Bullshit, there's no way, Valve can't count to 3, etc."
    Here's the interesting part in all this.
    So it lands on a date Valve will be attending. There's sources in the website that link to the original Left4dead site. There's a random video of a Valve employee teasing us with an L and a 3...
    It's certainly something to keep an eye on.
    What do y'all think?

    But there is also an L in Half Life and in PortaL. Each of which is in need of a third entry.

    They're making another one? I thought the franchise was left for... well, you know.

    If it's not true, then everyone will be disappointed that there's no new L4D. If it is true, then everyone will be disappointed it's not HL3 or Portal 3. No matter what they do, people will be disappointed... which seems to be exactly how they like it.

    FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE.

    Really though, I doubt it. Team Fortress 3 or Half Life 3 would probably come first.

    Left 4 Dead is a bit easier to develop it seems, I'm not surprised that they'd be making a third one. The second game came out a year after the first.

    It's certainly a lot more likely than Portal 3 or Half Life 3 or Team Fortress 3 since those are their biggest flagships and honestly one of them will probably be used to mainline the next engine they do. Probably Half Life 3. But like at this point Portal and Half Life are so highly praised that touching them is a delicate procedure. Left 4 Dead is not as much but still enjoyed by many and a lot easier to just make more stuff for.

    Its a countdown to Gabe getting 3 more knives.

    Also, Steam will now come with an option to donate money used towards buying knives for Gabe. A bunch of Valve employees were fed up with him using company money to buy more knives.

    Registration info on the domain was done through a privatization service, which is odd for large companies (they usually just do it directly).

    Then again, it'd be stupid to use those logos and such in a "copyright" section if you weren't actually representing them... but that is Russia.

    That's been all over steam forums and most of the reactions are " .ru? bullshit" x)

    If this can finally kill that stupid joke then it will have all been worth it. Oh yeah, and more Left 4 Dead or something. ;)

    So it does: I didn't even notice that. *airhead alert* But if they can count to three, then they might to decide to release another three game that starts with H and ends with E.

    I'm disappointing. Not because it's not HL3 but because the L4D is a bit shit.

    Erm.. I heard in some video games websites about that. That IP address is from some Russian kid, if I'm right.

    Whatever, Valve just destroyed TF2's stats, and are too focused on DotA 2 public launch these days.
