I've not stopped dreaming about HL3's release date. A word was out in the late last year that Valve was discussing HL3 and was tentative about its release date. No idea how much of that is true and whether our dream is going to be a reality.

Are there any HL fans out here or is it only me!? smile.gif


Gordon was here...........

First of all thats not a fat ass.

Now Im an avid Half life Fan....I played blueshift and Opposing force after I speedruned the normal half life which I played as much as an average american christian prayed.Yeah...

I was great in the svencoop community before steam.Half life two was good, It was ground breaking buuuuuuut I cant say I like it as much as the first one cause HECU and Black ops were cool.IT was a mistake that valve didnt add in the Fassn to half life two,The combine grunts were really soldier like but thats all they were.Not really THAT interesting.Aliens were nice too...Then again I'd have the ORIGINAL HALF LIFE 2 Anyday over this casualzed pink fluf story that is the retail half life two. (There are still remenants of that if you go near parks you can hear the sound of children playing)

Why am I saying all this? Cause this year I broke....I love valve, but after whats going on in dota 2 which I dont know who to blame; for casuals I'll explain it simply as:

-Oh guys this new engine is so cool!
-Wait we can do that? OKAY THEN LETS ADD THAT IN
>Sir erm....Is that balenced or nessary in the game?
-FUCK THAT SHIT THIS LOOKS REALLY COOL!

So even if Dota is less toxic theese days the meta is...beyond me and a friend whos been leading a professional asian team.We both quit and looked into other stuff.Portal two was good...but my point is Half life has always been to set up the bar, push the limits of the industry and what equipment can do...

To set the norm, or we arent gonna learn who the gman is...Theres no reason for to give that information.We arent gonna have kids with Aleyx.And sadly we are never gonna see adrian shephard return to kick ass...I was so happy when I saw his initials at the end of portal one, only to have thooe dreams crushed by valve.

Now what we do know is that HL3 development is a thing....The two things thats needed is:
>An Increase of people working on it aside from currnet valve projects.
>A sustainable and attainable technology or something that changs everything.Like after HL2 every game had a physics engine...
People say this is VR or prosedurely generated data at Soruce 2 that dota 2 has(Its nothing like what we've known before....If you fed it textures a few models and sounds this thing can basicly print out a new COD remake by itself maps and stuff included.

We dont know if theese will do anything....Hell Vave is unique and pretty wierd compared to other developers.

There is data leaks suggesting theres an RPG but people say its most likely for DOTA, as a rpg in the half life universe when the hype for half life 3 is over 9000? Thats suicide..

Rant Aside TL DR: I gave up on half life 3...It finnaly broke me this year.I gave up...Im sorry Gaben...I want Shephard to return with Chell and Gordon but I gave up.

Bruce, that was impressive. Albeit, always remember, there are three sides to a story. Yours, theirs and the truth. Still hope someday Valve will retort back with a surprise. Besides, even I've a Half-life Compendium burned onto a Double Layer DVD including Blue Shift & the very awesome Opposing Force, HL2 Ep1 & Ep2. Never tired or bored playing it all over again smile.gif
