Sounds like quality trolling to me. If they were going to gamescom they will be showing off Dota2 and CS;GO, so I'll get excited when I finally see it.

Who cares; all I want to know is when they will be announcing Ricochet 2.

I could believe it this time. It seems like they were close to showing it at E3 (speculation from me given all the rumors surrounding Valve showing something with a "3" in the title this E3, which never happened). They've obviously been working on it, and now they've been working on it a very, very long time. Seems like it's about time for a showing.

I stopped caring a really really long time ago. Until I can get it on Steam I'm not going to get excited anymore.

I don't know if I care to play Half-life anymore. My tastes have changed quite a bit since HL2 came out. I rarely play shooters anymore. For me, it might be one of those too little too late deals.

They already did.

In terms of Ricochet 2, we always have this problem that when we talk about things too far in advance, 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 problem is, we think that the twists and turns that we're going through would probably drive people more crazy than just being silent about it, until we can be very crisp about what's happening next

Oh, hey, Dragon Age 3 and the Dead Island sequel are also on that list.

I try actively to not think about HL3. Nothing good can come of it, until something actually happens.

I refuse to believe that Valve, of all companies, gets hypestolen by a gamescom schedule.

It is actually seeming more believable. Hmmm.

@TaliciaDragonsong: Not remember Cave Johnson info about portal 2 getting leaked by a casting agency waaaaaaay before portal 2 was announced?

After the internet hyped itself up about that other reveal today, I take this news with a whole silo of salt and perhaps a dash of cilantro.

#24 Posted by RIDEBIRD (1232 posts) -

UPDATE: Guess what! Gamescom are now saying that Half-Life 3 and Dragon Age 3′s appearances on the list was “a mistake”, according to Eurogamer. Although they won’t say how that mistake happened. Also, Lamda Generation heard from Valve (a rare treat) saying they weren’t showing any games this year.

this joke probably never gets old at valve... lol

@Finstern: I don't, I'm not into such things.
#27 Posted by OtakuGamer (1237 posts) -

Valve always be trolling.

Sounds like something might have gotten sent in by mistake from a random source. After about a year of waiting after Episode2, I kind of gave up on the HL franchise coming out anytime soon. I know it will be good if it ever comes out but just got tired of getting hopes up for it to show up, I've got other things to do than pace around for the next HL game/expansion. The longer valve waits on doing anything with HL franchise, the more it appears to not happen.

Not happening.
