    GAAAAAAAAA! NO! I want Episode 3!!! Portal 2 will tide me over until then I guess.

    No its not Episode 3...its Half Life 3. Before you start, yes they did say that Episodes 1 to 3 are Half Life 3 to them, they're still not called Half Life 3. [​IMG]


    Nah I don't think there'll be any more Half Life games after Episode 3, maybe perhaps there'll be more episodes where you're not Gordon Freeman and you're going through the events via another person like with the first game but the Freeman story will probably end there.

    I'm betting on something Team Fortress related, and I hope it is, as I love that game.

    I've also been thinking maybe they are going to go multi-platform and start developing for the ps3

    Oh well i'm convinced, no ep3 for us

    *facepalm*

    Seriously who the fuck thinks that just because Gabe Newell denies it RIGHT BEFORE E3 we should accept that.

    My friend and I were talking about it and he said "Hell, maybe it's just Half Life 3". For all we know, it could be. I know they've said "we're counting the HL2 episodes as HL3", but you never know.

    If anything I hope it's a new original project. Valve's new projects time and time again have proven to be awesome. Otherwise Left 4 Dead 3 would be nice.

    Wouldn't be too unlikely considering the OS X version. I'm still hoping it has something to do with Half-Life though.

    I could be completely wrong, but I thought that they were planning a release for a summer of some year. Something like that. Planning, anyway xP.

    That would be a terrible e3 surprise, though, given the amount of linux users.

    I think the surprise still has to do with portal. They're just fucking with us. But i do think there will be half life announcements also.

    that's just ubuntu users^

    with that much possible customers and the triviality of slightly tweaking the mac build of steam for linux support i'd say it'd be worth it to them [​IMG]

    I hope it will be either Portal 2, Steam & Source for Linux or some new game, because I am not actually fan of HL and L4D series, and some new crazy update with 9000 new hats for TF2 will be just ridicoulous.
