How will this game be announced?

#1 Posted by Dtat (1634 posts) -

Knowing Valve and what they've done with Portal, I think they have something awesome up their sleeves for an announcement. It's not super fancy , but personally, I'd like to see this happen: 
At a press conference, they make no mention at all of Ep 3, and then they say goodbye and everyone begins to leave. Then, the lights go out, the screen flickers on and off the number "3." it goes out and we hear G-man's voice say "Dr. FreeEEEeeman..." the lights go on, and all the Valve guys act like nothing happened. 
Kind of lame I guess, but I would love it! :)

At this point, I don't think it's ever going to be announced. I've lost hope.

My theory is that Portal 2 is Half-Life 2: Ep. 3.

I think they'd be idiots to never release this game. and I don't think Valve are idiots. Besides! It's only been three years since ep 2, and if they're developing a new engine, that's not an unreasonable dev cycle.

0_0 I'd be alright with that.

I agree with Dtat, Gman needs to give us the news!  And it would be the perfect cliche :)

giantbomb has an unboxing video where they open a crate, all that is in it is a red crowbar and a live headcrab.

This wouldn't be entirely surprising, but I will be way disappointed if thats the case.

They are going to rip open a Resonance Cascade in the middle of Time Square.

Gabe Newell will skydive down naked whilst holding a megaphone, shouting "HALLLLLFFF LIIIIFFEEEEEE THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

No offense, but I hope they take my advice and not yours. XD

Believe me if they announce Half Life episode 3 it aint gonna be like Portal 2, it should get it's own press conference at E3.

It will be announced as the planet cracks in half and howling nuclear winds whip at our ragged clothes. The human race gasps a last collective breath and the last thing we all see is the release date in the teaser trailer.
