Another Half Life three tease by Gabe.

#1 Posted by Twitchey (865 posts) -

I saw this on Reddit posted by LordMaxey and I thought Giantbomb would be interested in this picture.  

If you can't see the 3 next to the Half-Life logo then here is a link to the original  http://i.imgur.com/SPv2Y.jpg  
 
So how do you guys feel about all the recent teasing by Valve for Half Life? I'm playing through Half Life 2 right now for the second time and this makes me really excited to see a future with this franchise.

Whatever, enough time has passed that it is simply not enough to just make another Half Life. If Half Life 3 is not on some next level shit, who cares?

I'm totally fine with all the teasing... I find it rather fun to see people pick apart everything, for that extra bit of infomation or hidden message.

I just don't have enough popcorn for all this.

They just need to either announce it shut the fuck up.

The teasing is only good-natured and fun if the game is actually going to be announced this year. Otherwise, it's just cruel.

But isn't it supposed to be Half-Life TWO episode 3? Not Half-Life 3? Dun-dun-dunnnnnnn

The original version of this image did not have the half life lettering. It's a shop.

Are knife collecting a real thing in America... or is Valve a crazy person business?

@FateOfNever: I don't think anyone still presumes they'll release it as episode three. It's too long now.

I want Gunman Chronicles 2! (No I don't)

What if Dota 2 is actually Half Life 3 where the G-Man put Gordon Freeman into this world as a slave master, ruling over all the supposed "heroes".

Can't both be true?

Yeah, I guess so. If my boss collected knifes in the office, I would maybe look for other opportunities.

Apparently Gabe is crazy nice. I love the dissonance between his massive KNIFE COLLECTION and stuff like this.

Yeah... maybe I should come out and say that I was mostly kidding. I love both Valve and Gabe Newell... and maybe knife collecting is a thing, to some people, I dunno.

@Christoffer: I kind of don't care. I just thought that image was cool and wanted to post it. If someone was offended by your post then they need to reconsider some shit.

Good to hear. Wasn't trying to offend anyone but a certain caps-lock fiend above made me realize I had to clarify this.

I wonder how many people Gabe has killed, just for fun...

Are you really getting offended at a simple question that seemed like it was half-meant to be a joke? Chill out.

Gabe Newell and knife collection are crazy.

Also at this point just making Half-Life 3 shouldn't be enough, it should have to be a great game, but people will go crazy when it happens and don't care about the quality.

Half-Life 2 is a great game, a great game, not amazing or anything but it is a great game. Yet there are still people that act like it is the Holy Grail of all Gaming for all time.

#27 Posted by chrismafuchris (1088 posts) -

I think knives are really neat. I know they are a weapon, but what I really admire is the handicraft that goes into each one, especially older ones.

#28 Posted by benjaebe (2783 posts) -

Yeah it's fake. Gabe has a shitload of knives though. There's like a wall full of them in his office and then elsewhere in Valve he has a wall of pictures he had someone take of his knife collection.

#29 Posted by Karmum (11517 posts) -

Doesn't seem real, and in the event that it is, well, you're killin' me Gabe. Sweet knives though.

Its a shoop, guys.

That's a photoshop and just in case you guys wanna be super sure, Chet Faliszek said back in December 2011 that Valve have not been teasing a Half-Life 3, despite what some think ( link).

I graduated twice since Ep2. I just don't give a shit anymore

Is it enough to just post "I don't care about Half-Life 3?" I don't think that's enough to warrant a post but I'm compelled to. I might have cared back when I was just a nymph, traveling the world, playing video games and fucking anyone who is willing to fuck me back. But now I'm a worldly, STD ridden adult and I'm over all the waiting and cock teasing of long-coming games. But this whole "get better... that's your job discription here at Valve." stuff is really touching. I never read that before. Were Gabe not already a cool dude in my book, this would've clinched it.

I don't care about Half-Life 3.

But of course that's what they'd say. *shiftyeyes*

That's a photoshop. The original image doesn't have the text on the screen.
