[QUOTE=glitchvid;35018851]Hey guys, GDC starts tomorrow! Hope for VALVe![/QUOTE] I don't think, that they will say something about Half-Life 3 or Episode 3 or whatever. The will eventually talk about "Steam Box", Dota2, CS:GO and gaming generally.
[QUOTE=glitchvid;35018851]Hey guys, GDC starts tomorrow! Hope for VALVe![/QUOTE] HL3 will [B][U]NOT[/U][/B] be announced there, E3 is where the games are at the GDC they'll most likely be showing off Steam for big tv's and/or the steambox.

[QUOTE=Goodthief;35019769]probably the future of steam mobile, I'm sure they're not just going to stop at a steam client they must be planning something more[/QUOTE] mobile ports of half life, dota, etc... ;)

I'm kind of excited about the steambox. A weird excitation, like having a boner looking at your young grandma's pictures.
Steambox is such an awful name Steam Engine is where it's at.

I had a dream last night that Gabe came to my house to personally deliver the first copy of HL3. Kelly Bailey was there too, dressed as Gordon, playing some awesome tunes. I woke up and was sad.
Also, I wouldn't be too hyped up for E3 because there's a 47% Chance we'll be disappointed because valve may have another game they want to release or they're holding off. And beside the execution with the announcement has to be done with care, too much hype leads to heaps of crazy assumptions and expectations resulting in just about everyone being upset.

[QUOTE=Chaotic Lord;35027828]Where'd you come up with that number? :v:[/QUOTE] 1. It's random But importantly number 2 is that when you subtract 100-47 you get 53. There's a small probability (47) that Valve won't mention hl3 but there's a high probability (53) that Ep3 will be mentioned I mean think of it valve is noticing how much the community is boiling over, we are wanting news, screenshots, trailers ANYTHING to feast on. We've been eating on lies, concept art, hidden details and false args from Spuf, facepunch and reddit. Everyone is going hungry and valve knows it so there may be an announcement this year. Valve did reveal that they feel awful for keeping their fans deprived on episode 3 information but they're only doing it not to hype up us so much. E3 has a high chance yes but do remember valve could be doing other things. The numbers are random, but it makes sense when explained.

[img]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/heart.png[/img] them for the ability to hold off for so long.
I think their lack of publicity has given them more intense focus in the long run. Sure, non-existing fans have no fucking clue what is going on or that Half-Life even exists, but those who do are so fucking drawn in by what they might do next that it's insane. I think it was a good marketing technique for Valve to pull off. The [B]moment[/B] we hear [I]anything[/I], half the Earth will just go [B][I][U]APESHIT[/U][/I][/B] for it.

Or when your yelling at your friend "OMG DUDE THEY ANNOUNCED HALF LIFE 3 OMFG I CAN'T WAIT TILL IT COMES OUT!!!!" and he just asks "Whats half life 3 ??" It may create hype at first for US few people, but the rest will just be left saying; "What the fuck ?"
I will have excitement for sure but I won't be going apeshit only because it's an announcement and we haven't got our hands on the game just yet.
I must have it! Why make such a huge cliffhanger at the end and then just make us wait for YEARS.

[img]http://static.glitchvid.com/images_andthatshiz/fp_posts/derpthreazz/532531107.jpg[/img] That one made me laugh.
It's just missing the beard.
Reminds me of this. [video=youtube;U7Po5-lT_Og]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7Po5-lT_Og&feature=channel_video_title[/video]
Pardon if this has been posted, but I found this on a similar thread and I find it to be quite relevant. [video=youtube;y_2yIIZ82XU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=y_2yIIZ82XU#![/video] I realize that this is old news, but most people haven't seen it, and quite frankly, I think the bit with G-Man at the end is extremely interesting. Perhaps he'll play a much bigger part in Half Like Three?
