So, has anyone tried emailing Valve and asking them what's up with the IGN tweet?
What are the chances that HL3 will have Kinect support? EDIT: Not that I WANT Kinect support, I just wonder if it will have it.
From Garry's twitter: [QUOTE=Garry] Good News - Valve got HL3 working! [url]http://orange.half-life3.com/apache2-default/[/url] [/QUOTE] It's an official subset of the HL2 Orange box website, so i have no fucking idea what to think - has this been around forever or am I missing something?

Fairly recently discovered url.
[QUOTE=kild;35772104]It's just a tweet... It doesn't mean anything![/QUOTE] Then it wouldn't hurt to ask, right? If it really does mean nothing, then they'll simply tell us that, and we can all go back to grasping at straws.
[url]www.half-life3.com[/url] was registered by valve in 1999
Im just wondering, but has Valve ever had a time where no games where in development?
So this resolves as well, [url]http://black.half-life3.com/apache2-default/[/url] bring on the Black Box

[QUOTE=Atlascore;35771315]CS:GO and Dota 2 are being released this year, by time E3 happens CS:GO might even be only a few weeks from release, they've got to announce a new game at some point.[/QUOTE] CS:GO isn't being developed by valve though. Far as we know Dota 2 is their big project and is being worked on pretty much studio wide. Which is a shame.
[QUOTE=thrawn2787;35772868]CS:GO isn't being developed by valve though. Far as we know Dota 2 is their big project and is being worked on pretty much studio wide. Which is a shame.[/QUOTE] Valve are working on CS:GO there's just some guys from Hidden Path joining in as well. There are 200+ employees at Valve and I highly doubt more than 50 are working on Dota 2.
I want to believe.

[QUOTE=thrawn2787;35772868]CS:GO isn't being developed by valve though. Far as we know Dota 2 is their big project and is being worked on pretty much studio wide. Which is a shame.[/QUOTE] Isn't DOTA2 mainly something they assist the original creators with (which they've hired by now)? Something about making their vision come true with the resources Valve can provide or something, and learning from them about MOBA gamedesign and in greater depth about the competitive eSports scene (info they want to use on CS:GO where they also work closely together with Pros)?

[QUOTE=Thom12255;35773084]Full stop at the start of a sentence?[/QUOTE] Some languages are read right to left, so lines will start from the right. When translated they're often still stuck to the right.

300 mb update on HL2 EP2, real or fake? a friend told me that.
[QUOTE=NoName-;35773503]300 mb update on HL2 EP2, real or fake? a friend told me that.[/QUOTE] I really hope it's real, like the Portal update, changing the ending a bit - but it's probably fake. I see nothing on the newsfeed about anything like that.
There is no update.
Shucks.
[QUOTE=NoName-;35773503]300 mb update on HL2 EP2, real or fake? a friend told me that.[/QUOTE] Confirmed fake
Retcon Eli back to life!!!
GIVE ME HALF LIFE 3 GABEN I HAVE FED YOU MY DAUGHTERS FOR LONG ENOUGH
[QUOTE=Bomimo;35773786]Retcon Eli back to life!!![/QUOTE] If it would benefit the plot more than him staying dead, I'm sure they'd actually do that. But yeah he's got a lot of character strings attached to him, so "ripping him out" is a very effective and reasonable method of setting the tone for the supposedly darker and more horrifying sequel. I'm kinda concerned what an effect it'll have on Alyx as a character tho. In Episode 2 she was kinda there, but mainly just support to guide Gordon a bit. In Episode 1 she got a significant emotional development scene after the scary train ride, and in Episode 2 she had to overcome her new fear of Hunters. Now her family's dead and she'll probably have to be the one to tell it Judith of all people. Hope they don't make her snap in Episode 3, I think she's more useful for adding a human element to the scene without drawing all that much attention to her personal character arc. But it does seem like it's all leading up to something. What do you guys think could/should/shouldn't happen?
[QUOTE=Jericho_Rus;35768361]Oh, I will just be happy to see how wrong lotusking is. [editline]30th April 2012[/editline] Valve won't hire a private booth to show Ep3, they will do it on public.[/QUOTE] Yeah because Valve has always been ones for big public announcements. HL2 was first shown in a private booth at E3, press only. It was also announced with this image. [img]http://www.hl-inside.ru/images/news/edge_hi.jpg[/img] Portal 2 was announced unexpectedly. Yeah, I trust that Valve will definitely come out and say "yep ep3 be happy"! Seriously, don't be daft. I'm 90% certain there's gonna be a Half Life announcement this E3.

She later comes back as an advisor and you use her as a method of transport!
