    Valve about to make a big announcement and various games media outlets are dropping teasers.

    For example. Also the Half-life3.com domain just had a database update.

    Things are afoot.

    And if they announce it tomorrow it'll only be another 6 years until we get to play it.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    Of course, "wake up and smell the ashes" could be the long awaited pyro skit for TF2.

    Can't be that obvious, surely.

    Surely?

    I glean inspiration from the mention of Black Mesa in Portal 2. By my rough calculations, another 7 years ought to be ample.

    I don't think this is going to happen any time soon now I think about it.

    Oh well.

    But hey, at least there's a Half-Life 3 thread now!

    It is the Pryo vid there has been talk of it coming out this week for a while now.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    I wonder when they started HL3 did they think (like crytek) that we'd be on the next gen of consoles by the time it was complete?

    When HL2 was announced there was only an 18 month gap from release iirc. That included a 6 month slip also.

    Yeah, more or less. It was released exactly a year after their originally stated release date that had been set about 6 months previously. The source code leak was exactly one month before that date.

    The line "wake up and smell the ashes" makes me want to install Half Life 2 and play through it again, must be well over a year now since I last played it

    I doubt they could give less of a shit. The only reason they release the games on consoles is because they're getting paid millions to do so.

    It's gotta be the Pyro.
    As much as I would like to see HL3 en route, my love for TF2 makes me just as excited for another team short and I'm confident that HL3 will turn up eventually and be good when it does, so no angst there.

    Ep2 is brilliant except for one tedious bit near the end (IMO). But the ending makes up for it.

    Maybe nVidia was really involved in some pre-announcement activities when they mailed those crowbars to selected reviewers. Then again, the 690 review cards then shipped in small wooden crates so it might be also a red herring.

    The HL2 EP2 'boss battle' ending bit is awful imo, I ended up quitting and just watching the end on youtube. Otherwise very good though.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Strange, I know. Bought it day one, but it just slipped from my schedule, I knew it would be an age until the next one.
    It's like an emergency tin of Salmon now.

    They were definitely working on Ep 3 for quite a long time before presumably deciding to turn it into HL3, so it's not unfeasible that once announced it might be a very short wait until release.

    Especially when you consider the lessons learnt from what happened with HL2 as well.
