Anyone fans of this epic series? I am a huge Valve/half life gamer. Anyone here play and enjoy the games immensely? and if so what are you're thoughts on Episode 3? Its been 3 years since half life 2 episode 2 game came out, valve is been taking there sweet time... Some people have lost hope and think the series is done for and there is no more plans for a sequal....I hope thats not the case :( especially after how episode 2 ended :hecho:

Motherfucker I am really mad at Valve for delaying this shit as long as they have. Nothing from E3, nothing from TGS, nothing from PAX, and their huge announcement earlier this month was just fucking DOTA 2.

It's been more than three years since Episode 2. The time between episode 1 and episode 2 was about a year and four months. The time between HL2 and Episode 1 was about 1 1/2 years. The time between HL1 and HL2 was six years. Since it's been more than half the time that it took to get HL2 to come out from HL1, I'm pretty much convinced that there will be no episode 3, but instead will be Half-Life 3.

I'm okay with Portal 2, but they need to calm the hell down with TF2 hats and stupid updates and no more fucking L4D expansions.

I feel you on that man. Half Life 2 is easily one of the greatest video games I have ever played in my 20 years of living...

I think what made HL2 stand out the most was the goddamn atmopshere....jesus christ.

Especially the "Driving" parts of the game. I just loved breathing that open air *while the combine was on your ass hightailing it*

Episode 2 is even better IMO....goddamit valve....stop taking so goddamn long :(

Sad to say I don't think we will ever get a FPS as epic as the HL2 series *I say series cause Half Life 2 is basicly that....a fucking series....with its episodic contents and what not*

I wish Valve would just ditch Portal 2...its a good game....but it ain't no Half life :cool:

I would way rather have Portal 2 than any more installments/updates for TF2 or L4D1/2 because at least Portal ties into the Half-Life story.

Hell yes, Half Life 2 is the best FPS of all time.

I'm a huge fan of Valve games, especially the Half-Life series.

I can't wait to hear what the other two announcements are going to be!

Episode 3 is way past due and needs to come out now!!

If they announce HL 3 with a new engine I'll go nuts! :eek:

But I'm affraid HL2 will forever just end with Gordon chilling by that chopper with Dog, Alex and her now impaled deceased father :(

seriously? best first-person game of all time? lets get real here for a minute. HL2's story was more intelligent than other games, true, but it still had plot holes and repetitive levels and enemies. id rank half life a step above the halo series, but nothing too far beyond that. just cause they use scientific words most 12 year olds and frat boys wont understand doesnt mean the game is better, its just Valve using marketing strategy to create a niche group of loyal fans.

if you ask me the first half life was the best. the HL2 games took it way overboard to the point where the story is just a confusing mess that seems like theyre just making up as they go. id much rather have this released than episode 3, http://www.blackmesasource.com/

I disagree! I really do think Half-Life 2 is one of the best First-Person Shooters of all times. Plot holes? Repetitive levels? Were we playing the same game?

I dunno, are you playing the "sequal" that had nothing to do with the first game, aside from a few cameo's from old characters, in order to just show off Valve's cool physics effects? Or how about the game where you just drive a shitty car for 100 levels while fighting either giant crickets or SWAT guys in a city ripped right from Orwell's story. They didn't even bother to make the driving part work smoothly, it was all choppy and hard to steer, I'm pretty sure the last level of episode 2 was just the developers trolling the fuck out of their fanboys.

I liked the game, it was a lot of fun, but I didn't jizz my pants over it. And despite whether it was even a good game or not, theres absolutely no good reason why episode 3 wasn't released 2 years ago.

I jizzed my pants over it! I still do! The driving sequences aren't that long, and there's a lot of different types of levels, especially if you include the two episodes.

That's probably because you sucked at driving. I had no problem with the driving mechanics. It was abit choppy but it was smooth sailing other then that:cool:

Also, I will admit....just like Mankvill...I also Jizzed in my pants over this game......many...many times :(

I'm pretty sure it's in development. I have good reason to believe that it'll be one of the first games for the PS4. And wasn't it going to be "Half Life 3" instead of EP 3?

The concept art from a few years ago looks amazing, and the fact that they'll return to "genuinely scaring the player" sounds promising.

Besides, there's some activity on the interwebs: a "logo" + website and a lambda logo hidden. No time to post it, see for yourself lol. Even if it's fake, HL 3 is on it's way.

I pretty much stopped playing PC games in 2006 and was exclusively a 360 player. And the computer I took to college from 2007 - 2011 was a piece of shit (seriously, it was maybe 8 - 10 years old?) so I couldn't play PC games even if I wanted to.

I think Valve is going to wait until the next gen consoles (Xbox 720 & PS4) come out and see what it can it do in the future rather than start making a game right now. I don't think there is going to be an Episode 3 just Half-life 3. As long as Valve never says that they are done with Half-life the series than I will continue to anticipate with great expectations when the announcement does come no matter how long it takes.

I guess now that there will officially never be another half life game i guess we will never find out the true identity of who the G-man really is and the people that he works for.. That's the one thing i was dying to know about in the plot of this series.. poop shoot.. :(

Rest in Peace Half Life. Five more months and it will mark officially five years since half life 2: episode two was released... November 2007...

Was that announced at Comic Con or something? I haven't heard that it wasn't going to happen. Duke Nukem Forever wasn't suppose to happen and 15 years later...

Ok bad example. :lol:

I just looked it up and the most recent Half Life news is the reveal of a Gordon Freeman action figure so I don't see why sepulwizard is giving up hope. I think the next Half Life is going to be Half Life 3, not episode 3. I think it's taking such a long time because along with the release of the game they are going to introduce a whole new engine (similar to how HL2 was the first big game to utilize the source engine).

"It's been a heartbreaking past few years for Half-Life fans. After the release of Half-Life 2: Episode Two back in 2007, Valve has been mysteriously quiet on the game, refusing to release any details or updates on when gamers can expect to see the game.

In a recent podcast interview with Seven Day Cooldown Valve co-founder Gabe Newell shed some light on why this is the case."In terms of Ricochet 2, we always have this problem that when we talk about things too far in advance," Newell said.

"We end up changing our minds as we're going through and developing stuff, so as we're thinking through the giant story arc which is Ricochet 2, you might get to a point where you're saying something is surprising us in a positive way and something is surprising us in a negative way, and, you know, we'd like to be super transparent about the future of Ricochet 2."
The response was prompted by the interviewer asking ,"When can we expect the release of Ricochet 2?"
Ricochet 2 is apparently a codename for Half-Life 3, since no game named Ricochet 2 is in development by Valve.
Earlier this summer, a leaked Gamescom document showed that Valve would have a Half-Life 3 booth. It was later revealed that the listing was false.
"We're not showing any games in Cologne [Germany] this year," stated Valve.
While the podcast interview did not reveal any information, it does point to the fact that the game is in development, and that Valve is apparently so concerned with its reception, it will wait until the game is up to Half-Life par before releasing any details.
This may not be the news you were looking for, but stay tuned to LatinosPost for when any updates on Half-Life 3.

It's no question that the game is in development. People who think it got cancelled and it's never coming out are just being pessimistic. It hasn't even been 4 years since episode 2 came out. This is nothing close to Duke Nukem forever.

No trolling, something might be happening.

http://stickskills.com/2013/06/25/valve-may-have-started-an-arg-for-half-life-3/

Basically:

Half-Life 2 is getting an update on Steam right now. Looks like the same update that gave us the potato sack stuff.

Also the official steam support page posted about it, then posted some Korean text that translates roughly to "Prepare for unforseen consequences"

And then a NEOGaf poster posted a leaked screen of next month's Game Informer magazine that is hinting at something from Valve.

Guys...

It might be happening.

My theory is that Manks works for Valve and has been told to troll the fans as much as possible to the point of breaking; then HL3 will be released for $200 and the fans won't break a sweat handing over 3x the amount of a video game
