[QUOTE=Reimu;31324810]Unless one of us knows a forum moderator and they tell us, we really can't say for sure. Again, I don't think someone would come out and say "Yep, this is fan-made" unless they knew for sure it was. [editline]25th July 2011[/editline] Also, just the fact that Valve always does their ARG through game updates, their own URLs, and Steam suggest that this really couldn't be Valve's doing.[/QUOTE] It was posted in the EP2 forum, there was no proof it is EP2 related so it was locked. Valve has only done 2 ARG's before, both for Portal 2. Still, i don't really think it is a Valve ARG.

Get this out of here, has NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS as said in the EP3 thread AND THIS THREAD.
What's interesting is that the Spine Network Twitter seems to be run by a ''Jackson Hallick''. During the Portal 2 ARG, a song called Center Of Your Mind, Mr. Hallick was released alongside the ''cave'' and ''Searching Emergence Discovery'' songs. Just throwing this out there. Determine for yourself whether or not there is a genuine connection.
I don't think its Valve. I mean if they are going for horror, I don't think they'd go for scary movie type of horror. If it was a Valve ARG, then I'd say it led to a new scary game. Not Episode 3. A new game franchise entirely.
Wasn't there something odd added to the Ep1 gcf lately? Or has that been proven to be nothing yet?

Not valve, they wouldn't go putting screamers and low quality filter raped videos of some teenager dudes dancing in a park in their ARGs.

Y'know, the whole "Help is coming Gordon you are not alone" might be implying that Episode Three might have a co-op mode bundled in where you can play as different characters in the adventure, like Alyx, Barney (it's likely he escaped City 17 and survived, probably just arrived just after you defeated the Striders and you didn't recognise him), maybe even Shephard. (the ex-USMC Corporal, not the Normandy Commander, although that'd be kinda interesting too) Speaking of Shephard, somehow I think he'd work well as a sort of "rival" of Gordon's, since he was thrown headfirst into the mess Gordon started back at Black Mesa. Also, if Episode Three ends up with "cosmetic customisation" like they did with Portal 2 (hope it won't happen, but it very likely might), Barney should have an optional Black Mesa Security uniform outfit, a shout-out to the old days.
nightmare house 3?
It's really hard to tell if this is Valve or something else. I don't think it breaks Valve's style, as they don't have a specific one, as Half Life, Team Fortress, Counter Strike, and so on are all very different from the other in a way. Also, a lot of Valve's games are based of ideas by modders and so on, so this could be by a guy they picked up, thinking he had a keen eye for horror.
Valve or not, I'm intrigued.

Also the Reddit post confirmed that the Gordon thing was fake, which supports the idea that the redditor is in on this.
@Zakkin The creator already said there won't be a NH 3. The reason why I'm not quoting - It takes forever to load for me.

Goddamn, Ravenholm already emotionally scrarred me for life. Whatever this is, I don't want to know it.
After looking over these videos, I have concluded that they're just far too well produced to be something fan-made. So really, this is either Valve, some other company, or a man with a lot of money and free time.
