Anyone have an idea as to when they are going to release Half Life Episode 3? It is driving me insane as I have been waiting for that game forever. I wonder if they are just waiting for the next generation release of gaming systems. Its almost if they take pleasure in the torture of patience that they bring on us. I feel like a horse with a carrot in my face on a string with a blindfold on.

It is normal steam they are always this this with a Game from them because it left the story hangin at when you were about to get on a helicopter to go to that Ship that had a Weapon on it that they needed or something to finish off the rest of the combine.

Please do not be telling me they are not going to finish the series and leave us with this dangling icicle of cold injustice to the gaming community. They made such a good freaking story just to leave us dreaming of resolving the conflict and to end the torment of what might have been. AHHHHH the anticipation is throwing me into convulsive heap of slag. lol :?

Don't get me wrong the Half Life series is one of my favorites, but I was disappointed with the HL-E2 ending. Not that it was bad, it was just sudden and sad. All that time getting into perilous shenanigans and whatnot, only for that to happen. They definitely need to do it justice by releasing the third one with a kick-ass send-off or something. Although it would be a first. Valve have never done a "third" game in any of their series.

WHY, WHY, WHY, WHY!! !! !! !! !! !! !! !! Why must they destroy what is so great and awesome. WHY HAS VALVE FORSAKEN ME (US)! !! !! !! !! sorry just a bit over dramatic lol. I cannot understand why they would not want to do a third game especially with one that was as awesome as the Half Life series especially leaving us on such a precarious cliff hanger. Are they afraid of the number 3 or something? I have heard rumors they said they were working on it or something of that nature. Maybe they will break the curse of 3. They could just rename the game and keep on with the story. I mean technically...

What you have heard about probably was leaked Dota2 files containing files or at leat refercences to HL3... Or it was a trap to see when it gets leaked since those references make it to news..

Well according to this site Valve has announced it will be coming out with an episode 3.

http://twitpic.com/1twtjx (this easily could be a fake but who knows)

I love this saying it is so true. We should rename the "schroedinger's cat" phenomenon to "Half Life 3".

It does appear to be speculation and rumors but I shall remain hopeful. Look how long it took for Duke Nukem Forever to come out.

I spotted an article a while back suggesting there won't be an episode 3, but a completely new half-life game featuring a new version of the source engine. Can't find it though.

Half-Life 2: Episode 3 is coming, so just chill.


This is good advice. You seriously need to chill, play some other games for a while, take a walk in the park, rake the leaves, collect bottlecaps, identify insects, kiss girls, bake some cookies, write a rock opera, wash the dishes, finish your model airplane, learn to hula-hoop, pet the kitties, return bottles and cans...maybe when you get back, Ep 3 will be finished.

glad i'm not the only one. poor alex i want to see how she will cope in the next game. she will probably be fine, but i ran a gauntlet of pure hell to save her life. i worry about her... i'm weird.

i also want to see the borealis and find out [hopefully] who the gman is...
