Did you guys see this? Some folks at 4chan were, well, 4channing:

They sent this e-mail to gaben@valvesoftware.com

The next day, presumably Gabe wrote back with this:

I can't atest for the truthness of it all, and maybe a really angry intern is taking care of Gabe's e-mail account. If it's really Gabe Newell though, I just hope he doesn't think our favorite thing is a new Day of Defeat or something.

DOTA 3 (because they fucking can). Portal 3. Left 4 Dead 3. No Half-Life 3 though because he wants to see us suffer.

Would Gabe waste his time writing back to 4chan 13 year olds?

@The_Laughing_Man: Actually he has a history of responding to emails personally. I wouldn't be surprised if that was him.

Awesome!

Left 4 Dead 3 won't come out before Half-Life 3 / Episode Three. I'm calling it.

#16 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

Oh Gabe baby, all you have to do to make that happen is to pose for nude pictures.

Wait, what? Make all my dreams come true?

VALVE'S MAKING A SEQUEL TO VIVA PINATA!?! SWEET!!!!

#18 Edited by gike987 (1753 posts) -

@The_Laughing_Man: Gabe often responds to emails. He even say what his email is in the beginning of the Portal 2 developer commentary and tells you that he tries to respond to them.

#19 Posted by RazielCuts (2952 posts) -

Surely by 'all of your favourite things' he means everything they have outlined in their email, because how else would he know what their favourite things are?

Final Fantasy 7 remake in the Source engine confirmed.

Valve are making System Shock 3...or maybe just System Shock 2: Episode 1.

#23 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

Do we even want HL3 at this point? 
 
In 2012, nearing the next console's arrival, with games like Battlefield 3 and Witcher 2 on the market (tech/graphics), games like Modern Warfare and Gears of War (shootiness), do we REALLY want a non-iron-sights crowbar-driven shooter looking like LEFT 4 DEAD and loading every 2 minutes like PORTAL 2? 
 
The only way HL3 would be a decent game today is if Valve created Source 2.0, so, are we expecting that? will Valve do a good job with an all new engine?

Oh fuck. Black Mesa Source is releasing?!@AhmadMetallic said:

Source was fucking amazing for its time. The first engine to really blow minds with the sophistication of physics. It's been long enough now that Valve has had time to code an entirely new engine, and I feel like a big reason Episode 3 never came out is because Valve knew that, for what they wanted to do for that game, their current engine wasn't enough. They've since done some amazing things with Source, but it remains a fairly weak engine compared to its contemporaries.

New flagship title with brand new engine to coincide with upcoming generation of capable consoles. It's a no-brainer prediction.

#27 Posted by SamFo (1528 posts) -

Maybe i read this wrong, but isn't his tone more like "Even if we DID release everything you wanted... You still wouldn't be happy."

Rather than "Be happy, because we are going to release everything you want!!!"

That's kind of the brilliance of Gabe Newell though, isn't it? He totally WOULD do that, just to spite them.

#29 Posted by Daiphyer (1334 posts) -

Team Fortress 3. Calling it.

#30 Posted by BoG (5187 posts) -

Uh, that doesn't seem like a serious comment. "All of your favorite things" means absolutely nothing. It's a joke. Don't analyze it more than necessary.

#31 Posted by ArcadeHero (70 posts) -

I really hope this is a new Three Musketeers game, just to fuck with everyone.

It has a 3!

Though I really fucking hope that HL3 or Episode 3 doesn't play exactly like CoD.

#34 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

I laughed when I read the title because I can imagine Gabe just doing that to fuck with everyone.

Man, Gabe and Valve are awesome.

OT: If this is real then FUCK YOU GABE!

#38 Posted by Alphazero (1536 posts) -

You have to admit that the 4chan letter to Gabe makes some salient points. Not to mention, HL3 dickfuck why fruitcake tears sorry episode widecock.

Gabe Newell is going to my maid for a week? Sweet!

Wait, what? Uhh, nevermind.

I'm suddenly a happy man. So far I was going with the before mentioned Portal 3 or Steam 3, but this is much better.

He does answer almost all of the mail he gets (which I think is really awesome), but I don't think this one is legit.

Oh no...so Gabe is going to come over to my house and try to eat me with a fork and knife?!  How did he even find out about that dream?  God damn Steam monitoring everything!

#46 Posted by ch3burashka (5046 posts) -

He has a record of replying to fans (even the most foul ones).

He also knows that this would get around the forums.

I say he's telling the truth. It's the only thing I can believe in.

#49 Posted by TyrellOCP (336 posts) -

It's not going to be HL2:Ep3 or HL3.

Gabe Newel is the greatest troll/cock tease the internet has ever known and long may he wind up fanboys.
