Half-Life 3

  1. Dragon Age 3 and Half-Life 3 Appear in Gamescom Product Listing

    Gamescom, held in Cologne, Germany, is one of the biggest gaming trade fairs in the world. The convention is no stranger to its share of announcements, either. After all, Germany is a decently large market. In a product listing released for the show, both Dragon Age 3 and Half-Life 3 are mentioned. Could it be? Dragon Age 3 is almost certainly coming at some point, so its inclusion can be rationalized, but adding Half-Life 3 either makes the list totally bogus or shockingly real.

  2. Check Out This Half-Life 3 Gaben Poster And The Making Of

    Fans have been clamouring for Half-Life 3, or at least some information on the series, for a while now. Nothing has really changed on Valve's end so, unsurprisingly, nothing has really changed on the fan-end either. In addition to playing Half-Life 2 in solidarity, fans also have a tendency to create Gabe Newell (or Gaben, as he is often called) art. It's a something of a tradition. Here is a particularly majestic piece of a crowbar-weilding Gaben by Darren Geers. Expect it to accomplish precisely nothing on the Half-Life 3 front. Still, cool though. Check out the impressive time-lapse after the jump.

  3. What Will Gabe Newell Announce at This Year’s E3? [Video]

    If you're really hoping that head Valve honcho Gabe Newell is going to announce a third game in one of their more popular series at this year's E3, you obviously don't know that Valve can't count to three. YouTube user aekime needed to learn Flash, so aekime made this little animation as both an extremely accurate prediction of what Valve will do come this year's E3, and a way to, you know, learn Flash. Gaben approves.

  4. 28,000 to Play Half-Life 2 This Saturday as a for Plea Info on the Future of the Series

    Other than a few instances of playful trolling, Valve has been utterly -- painfully -- silent about the future of the Half-Life franchise for years now. The Half-Life 2 episodes, while not exactly you may have wanted, at least provided that I.V. drip fans so desperately needed until it cruelly ended at Episode 2, and on no less than the  largest ever cliffhangers in the series. Now, members of Steam Group "A Call for Communication," who number around 28,000, are planning to play Half-Life 2 this Saturday as a way of half-demanding, half-begging Valve to talk about Half-Life again.

  5. Computers In Garry's Mod Play Their Own Games Inside Your Game

    Garry's Mod, the ever-popular physics sandbox, has become a playground for 2nd degree recursion: Games in your game. For the unfamiliar, Garry's Mod is a modification for Half-Life 2's Source Engine that lets players play around with physics, NPCs, scripts, and pretty much anything else. Now, nearly 7 years after HL2's release, the Garry's Mod community is still using it as a laboratory for their mad science. The Facepunch (Garry's Mod message board) members responsible for this particular experiement are Technicolour and Divran, who thought it would be cool to play other games inside of Garry's Mod and what better way to do that than to emulate a Intel 8080 8-bit microprocessor and then use it to play Space Invaders, inside Garry's mod. Where will they go from there? They have some grand aspirations.

  8. Valve Cancels E3 Portal 2 Event In Favor of “Surprise”

    Listen, we've played through Portal. Multiple times. We know more than enough to be highly skeptical of any "surprises" related to the Aperture Science Corporation because those surprises are usually full of fire. Or deadly neurotoxin.

    But this press release is quite charmingly written:

    Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Valve to announce the gala CANCELLATION of the June 14 Portal 2 Event at the Regal Theater. The event will be replaced by a surprise. And even though the cancellation of the event certainly counts as a surprise, we are pleased to further announce that the cancellation of the event is not THE surprise. However, per International treaties regarding the definition of the word "surprise", of which both Aperture Science and Valve are signatories, the time, date and content of the actual surprise will only become available as you experience the surprise.
