Something tells me something that the rumor train has a-started and it is not going to stop anytime soon.

They were casting for Cave Johnson back in 2007-08. for a game that was released just this year. And he was the main villain back then.

It could mean anything, timeline wise.

It did at least confirm there (probably) will be a third game. tongue

It'll be released and they shall cheer to the heavens. They'll load it up on steam pop it in their PS 3/360's...

And it's just a continuous stream of Gabe, saying everything that became a meme, with bright flashing letters, either "Worth the Weight?" Or something about "You remember those fat jokes delaying the game? You were right."

And then steam will explode from pure, unadulterated RAGE.

I hear those so much I think I'd vaguely approve of that happening.

I like how people think that just because game's plot demands a sequel, it HAS to be on next few years or otherwise it will never come tongue

Time to change the style, for now

I guess Valve finally ran out of ways to procrastinate. I just wonder if they figured out how to get themselves out of the corner they wrote themselves into.

Possible achievements.

What do you mean? I can't think of any writing problems that would hurt the next game.

[up] Well, seeing as how the Combine's main force (a fraction of which was able to curb stomp all of Earth in seven hours) is poised to show up and do a little populace crushin', the Desperate Last Ditch Maneuver that was meant to prevent that has failed, and we still haven't found anything other than a Deus ex Machina that can stop Advisors from fatally brainf*cking anyone they feel like, I'd say that only Valve can save the HL-verse humans.

I thought the satellite launch at the end of Episode 2 worked. Am I wrong?

Granted, right now, all I remember of the ending is ELI NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

[up] Entirely possible, that's pretty much the main thing I remember from Ep2's ending as well, but IIRC, the rocket went off course thanks toHedy's attachment to the nosecone. But I can't be bothered to reinstall Ep2 and get past the strider attack again to rewatch the ending and check :p

EDIT: Nevermind, ignore this post

I think the main writing issue is how they're going to do a helicopter ride to the Arctic Circle in real-time. Presumably the Bag of Spilling like at the start of the other episodes will be achieved by the inevitable helicopter crash.

Keep in mind, it's just a prediction. And it'll be at the end of the show if it is.

Just stop believing it'll come out. It makes you feel much better.

[up] Agreed. Any hope of it getting released should have evaporated after four fucking years of no information.
