Half Life 3 is to be revealed this week at Gamescom, according to a pdf from the games show's website which lists all the titles that will be announced at the conference.


It's been a long time coming so I hope this is true. Easily my favorite game/series of all time.

Hrm, I may be the only person the world who thought that Half Life 2 was a huge step back from Half Life 1, and aren't really keen at all. Guess I'll give Episode 1 & 2 a whirl at some point..

In terms of SP I liked them both. Though HL2DM is just awful compared with HLDM.

I don't think they will but I hope they put some effort into creating some form of new MP.

Doug Lombardi (Valve's VP of marketing)

We will have the Steam team there to meet with developers and publishers. No game showing planned.

Half life 2 was different. I enjoyed playing it though. That's why I play games, enjoyment. Episode 1 and 2 were great though.

I want to play through HL1 again and was hoping that mod black mesa would be released but it is never going to be released. Might just play through vanilla

I also found Half Life 2 a serious grind, but I had never really played Half Life so maybe I was missing something.

Loved HL2 and Ep 1 and 2 - so want to play Ep 3 or HL3.

Recently bought HL1 re-done on the new steam engine for a re-play.

With the exception of a couple, everything on that list has already had an official announcement prior.

^This.

Seems when Blizzard North caved in (and the key players switched to Torchlight) the talent went with it (certainly as far as D3 is concerned)

SCII is still the biz.

Any other game I would say this would be complete and utter madness but in this special case I think they could make it work rather well.

Thinking back on HL2 and its episodes. it was alright for the time. I don't care much for the storyline that HL2 has, I would have liked to have seen exactly what valve had planned for the initial release of HL2, before the leak. It did seem a little different.

I would be interested in Half-Life 3 though, aslong as it does not follow on from HL2 much. I could care less about HL2-EP3 though.

I will rephrase. On a scale of Zero to infinite, I care zero about Half-Life 2 Episode 3. Satisfied?

I couldn't care less about Gordo or his floozy, but did enjoy gameplay mechanics from the HL series games.

onto a matter I COULD care less about... F*** the guy(s) who wrote the endings for HL1 and Op For tho... those f*****s can go DIAF

Half Life 1 was amazing and I still feel the need to play it every now and then, Half Life 2 was awesome I could spend hours replaying that game and killing enemies with the environment, the Episodes 1 & 2 were just as good I loved Episode 2 with the big mech fights at the end.

Half Life 3 will be super awesome Valve are possibly my 2nd favourite developer after Blizzard.

ok so i went to the valve stand today and TBH it was pretty dismal, possibly one of the worst displays there and only 4 people on 3 of which were promo girls and had no idea about hl3. the guy seemed to be too busy doing random s*** to talk to so yeah sorry guys.
