Haha ok I admit the thread title is bait to get people in here. But seriously I've been waiting for Half Life 3 for a long time, and even if Dishonored isn't very similar in its gameplay mechanics it still looks like it'll fill the hole that the wait for HL3 has left. As far as I know the art director for Dishonored worked on Half Life 2 and it shows. The game itself looks great with lots of interesting mechanics to acheive your goals. The one I'm most excited for is the possession one that I loved in Battlefield 2 modern combat. Anyway here's the new video kinda reminds me of Bioshock too.
Who cares about Half Life 3?
That's sad. But totally warranted and understandable.
To answer the topic question, I don't. I used to be a huge fan of Half Life but it's been so long that I just kind of don't care anymore. I'm sure I'll get the new game, but it feels like it's more out of obligation than excitement.
Still, nothing but nothing can take the place in my heart of that little anarcho-syndicalist developer's space 1984.
Yeah, I'm really looking forward to it (Dishonoured), mad high hopes. Looks like a supernatural Deus Ex and I'm okay with that.
And yeah, I still really want Half Life 3/Ep. 3, but I'm not excited for it or anything, it's been such a long time with nothing to speak of now, I'm sure when the first trailer comes out I'll change my tune and be pretty hyped, it is Half Life after all.
I read the Gameinformer article and the game seems alot like a mix between Bioshock and Skyrim. Oh, and I still want Half Life 3 or whatever Valve will call it to come out. In the time since Half Life 2 Episode 2 came out, Valve has made Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Portal 2, put out lots of updates for Team Fortress 2, announced they're making DOTA 2 and and a new Counter Strike. Still no Half Life 3 though. Thats messed up. And I know where the Borealis is!!! Play Portal 2 if you want to know.
