    I won't get my hopes up too much. I am, however, still patiently waiting to see what happens next.

    C'mon Valve, it'd make a lot of people very happy.

    Nvidia also sent out crowbars with "for use in case of zombie or..." engraved to media outlets???



    Could be then...

    Edit: last week it seems.

    "Wake up and smell the ashes" has to be a HL reference. It's a quote from HL. Why would that refer to something that isn't Half Life?

    Double bluff to get all this free talk and then show us a TF2 Pyro vid?

    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.
    Ditto, except the watching on youtube thing. Which I'm going to do right now :)

    Rise and shine, Mr. Freeman. Rise and shine. Not that I wish to imply you have been sleeping on the job. No-one is more deserving of a rest. And all the effort in the world would have gone to waste until... well, let's just say your hour has come again. The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world. So, wake up, Mr. Freeman. Wake up and smell the ashes.

    I wonder if the world could contain the geekgasm if they never announced HL3, but just one day releases it

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    It's not like people wouldn't be excited about TF2 stuff without having to pretend it's HL3.

    Maybe but it hypes it up even more than it normally would have.

    I can see it just been that.

    I was actually thinking about this the other day.
    Would be brilliant if games like GTA or Half Life didn't have press releases. I wondered how fast news would spread if they just put up an unannounced website that said we're releasing GTA V next week etc.

    I think they know they're on very thin ice with Half Life. A lot of broken promises and under-delivery with the episodes, and they know a lot of people are annoyed about them dong two L4D games and Portal 2 when they could have been doing HL. I really doubt they would think that was a good idea to tease like that.

    I really think an HL3 announcement is imminent, and I also think the game will be released very soon. And I'm rarely optimistic :)

    It's not going to be for TF2, using a HL3 quote like that when the fans are moaning enough already would be stupid.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Maybe, but this video if a big thing too I guess we will find out soon. Thursday is it, like the Portal 2 thing last week was?

    Turns out that IGN just put random game quotes up from time to time and the timing was coincidental.

    Seems the cause for all this was a misunderstood tweet from valve simply inviting people to check out their handy new feeds page.

    Yeah.

    That was my reaction too.

    Valve could fudge the release date that's shown on steam too

    'Why you still asking about Half life 3? it's been on sale since 2010!'

    I don't know where you're getting all this Pyro stuff from horizon (aside from my post about it on the last page), valve has said nothing about it. They say nothing about anything but the Meet the TF2 characters series are just released without fanfare.

    If they were going to release some information about a new game they'd start by adding random things into existing games like the Cave Johnson lemons graffiti in HL2 and altered ending for Portal. Not to mention a convoluted ARG to keep people guessing.

    Not a great example as no one expected anything from the GTA series then.

    GTA III was hyped for ages before release as I remember it. No idea where you've got that idea from.

    Not true, there are little oddities that crop up beforehand a lot of the time. Adverts in magazines, BURDS and the like.
    Not seeing anything odd today, save the TF2 site going up and down like a whore's drawers.

    Heh, seems you're right, there are still Amazon reviews from 2002 mentioning the hype during the preorder period.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing. I have been convinced a while that they have been so awfully quiet for years because they wanted to avoid another period full of delays.

    It doesn't take much to whip the fans into a frenzy of ready-to-rage speculation, it must be like tip-toeing across a minefield.
