    Didn't crew on terminator wear "not on T2" tshirts? Looks like a crappy iron on fake TBH.

    I don't see the point of this thread, Half Life 3 has been coming longer than Ron Jeremy at this stage.

    Episodic gaming. It's the way of the future.

    Course it is! It's been confirmed that Gordon will be voiced by Nolan North and you will be able to enter into a 3rd person cover mode when pressed up against an object.

    I heard it will have multiplayer too

    when will developers stop ruining games with unwanted and unneccesary multiplayer options

    When they stop tacking on pointless, check all the boxes, single player campaigns to multiplayer games ;)

    I heard the PC version will just be a console port and is poorly optimised.

    Campaign will be between 2 - 3 hours long

    Gordon's glasses will come as pre-order bonus, those who don't pre-order will have to play through the game with everything blurry and low res :pac:

    Absolutely

    HL1 and HL2 both had multiplayer at release, why would this be an issue?

    We all know Half Life 3 is coming. Valve won't be missing that money train :P

    But its a joke at this point. Half Life 2 came out in October 2004. Sure the last game, episode 2, came out in October 2007.

    4 years and no new game? .. not even Episode 3?

    Its gordon freeman!


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,371 ✭✭✭✭Zillah


    I only recently replayed Half Life 2 and then did the episodes which I had not bothered with before. I've been terribly excited for HL3 ever since. Dammit Valve.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,515 ✭✭✭LH Pathe

    It's weird that it's been over seven years since HL2 and even weirder how long since EP2. As much as I enjoyed those games, I'm now at the stage where I'm totally indifferent to Gordon Freeman's story. Sorry Valve, but I've moved on.

    I'm in danger of feeling the same. There's simply no excuse for how long its taken at this point.

    I think valve out itself in very very ****y position here.

    They took sooo long, that game engine is really outdated at this stage. Making new engine for old game will feel out of place.

    They really shot themselfs in a foot.

    I am really tempted to try out cinematic mode for hl2. My pc should be good enough for it now.
