So Valve is going to announce "3 big suprises" in the next 12 months?

How much are we willing to bet none of those projects will include Half Life 2: Episode 3?  Knowing Valve, that game probably will be released with no announcements or fanfare.

I will put money on one being "Half Life Mega Party Games on the Moon: Twilight Edition". That should calm the rabid HL fans for a few more years.

Uh, I'll leave a token bet on that, but only because it's so long overdue... 
 
But anyway, P(HL2E3 is announced in the next year) = approx 3.0e-9000. Probably.

I doub't the source engine can make infinite worlds. I would imagine it will still be Java based.

I can't tell whether it's more surprising if they announce HL(e)3 within the next year or if they don't.

Half-Life 3 
Half-Life 3 
and Half-Life 3. 
 
Seriously though: Half-Life 3, Defense of the Ancients, and an unknown brand new Valve IP.

I really want one of them to be Half-Life 2: Episode 3/Half-Life 3 but whatever these surprises are I'm sure we're in for something awesome.

Its only been what 2 years since the orange box came out? next fall HL2E3 coming out would be a standard development cycle, just far to long for a game with 'episode' in the title 
HL2E3 
DOTA 
New engine.... k thats unlikely but it would be awesome. i'd guess more realistically a new IP
