I care about Half Life 2: Episode 3. I will also play HL2 again, but there is no way in hell I am going to buy it for the sixth time.

I still do.But I think they are prolonging the ending a bit to much.They need to end it with episode3/HL3.
#12 Posted by Forcen (1809 posts) -

Orange box 2 has to be the worst possible title ever. If they ever make another compilation like the Orange Box, ill bet they will pick a new color.

Green Box? Red Box?

That's is what I think.  That is why I stooped caring for it.  Just hurry the fuck up and release it already.

Maybe they will call it The Black Box like there were going to do.

They wont do that, orange is the Half Life color from since the first game.  The only way I can see it being called the green box is if they do something with Left for Dead also.  Or portal, call it the blue and orange box.  But frankly i dont even think there will be a retail orange box, since lots of people already bought it.  I think Ep3 would be downloadable on XBL, and the super orange box, would only be available on steam as a pack of all the games.

I actually like this name.

What can they include on it though?
It can't be everything from the orange box, as everyone already has those.
This would be enough to satisfy me:
HL2: Episode 3
Portal 2
Counter-strike 2
Maybe some other unnamed project

I had this idea a couple of months ago and i thought it could contain-

-Original Orange Box
-Left 4 Dead
-Portal 2
-Black Mesa
-Half Life 2 Episode 3

They wont pack a free mod with a retail game.

@Ferginator4k: I don't think that's plasuable really, thought it is a nice idea.

I'd like the Orange Box to be called the Black Box instead of  "Orange Box 2", and it should contain the following:

Half Life 2
Half Life 2: Episode One
Half Life 2: Episode Two
Half Life 2: Episode Three
Portal Prequel/Sequel
Team Fortress 2.5 (Not quite sure what I mean, but I'll try and think of a definition sometime soon.)

The next Orange Box should include on disc or provide a code for downloading the original Half-Life a.k.a. Half-Life Classic similar to what the new COD: Modern Warfare 2 will have for its higher end editions.

It should also have a Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch/Make My Video style game for "Still Alive" and whatever Jonathan Coulton pens for the Portal follow up. 

And they might as well toss in a version of Day of Defeat...maybe with a tacked on L4D-like "zombie mode."  You and your team mates are in war torn Europe and you have to get to Paris but there are hordes of Nazi-zombies between you and the City of Lights.

Oh, and I think Valve should call it the Squeeze Box just because the Who rock.

Fuckin'  Half Life 2 always made me sick to play it. I hope they worked out the 3D movement to keep me from ralphing.

I didn't ralph from Left 4 Dead, so if they use that for future Half-Life, I may play it.  As for current Half-life, I'll just watch it on youtube & be done with it.

they should. If Halo is gonna get attention like it is, Half life 2 is 10x more deserving. 
#27 Posted by Bucketdeth (8005 posts) -

Whenever it is, I'm buying it, I heard the name "Purple Box" a lot.

#28 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

They better not make the Canadian cover in french again. It was ridiculous that my Orange box cover in huge writing says LA BOITE ORANGE then below that in tiny writing it says The Orange Box.

Left 4 dead2,half life (download code), half life 2,episode 1,2,3, portal two and team fortress with all pc updates added to 360 version and a few extra add ons for it.

"Orange Box 2" consumer guide


Do buy the package if the color is:


  • Black
  • Blue
  • Purple
  • Rainbow
  • Transparent

Boycott it if:

a) It has L4D2 (OH I JUST WENT THERE!!!)

b) The color is:


  • Green
  • Yellow
  • White
  • Pink
  • Red


If it is in any other color then the decision of purchasing it or not will be determined by the flip of a coin.


Who's with me?
#31 Posted by Half_Life (61 posts) -

I think it should have:
 
- Half-Life (the original)   
OR 
- Half-Life: Source
 
- Half-Life: Opposing Force
- Half-Life: Blue Shift
- Half-Life 2: Episode Three
- Portal 2 
- An Unknown Game
- Counter Strike: Source
 
- Updated Team Fortress 2 
OR
- Team Fortress 3
