Im hopin for portal 2 but it may be to early.
Mabey buy left for dead and ep.3 in a pack for 70$....that would be sweet.
what will HL2 Ep.3 come bundled with or will it be stand alone?
Well i think L4D will be out in 2008 and there has been no real information, trailers or screenshots of Episode 3 as of yet. So heres to hoping we get some info with L4D. And as for a Portal 2 being released with Episode 3 i could see it happening as Portal itself wasn't a long game so shouldn't take too long to create a second if its similar to the first.
yeah im guessing it'll either be a stand alone product... almost a game by itself rather then another expansion, its the conclusion, it HAS to go out with a bang! portal 2 is the obvious choice i think. But i can see another orange box type package a few months after release which will include the entire half life 2 series. Might get some "the making of" videos and extra developer video stuff and things like that.... perhaps some kind of suevenier of some kind, like a miniture freeman, or alex, something of that nature
lol I think Huxley and Duke Nukem Forever are in the same boat,I really don't think they'll ever happen. Valve apparently hasn't said shit about HL2-episode 3 yet though,and you know them and release dates not being very accurate,so i'd imagine they won't ever announced much and it'll just happen withing end of 08- summer -09 I would think.
Valve have always said they didn't count CS:S as a sequel, so one would think that they are making one.
But valve really have a boner about TF2, so I don't know if they would release 2 high status multiplayer games so soon of which both would take away from TF2 (L4D and supposed CS2 - assuming Ep3 bundle is out next year)
Probably is going to be stand alone, but something tells me that this time Valve is going to ship a longer game... maybe this, beign the showdown for half ife 3 (the half life episodes are half life 3), they wanted to make it big.
Of couse we will se a product with everything packed in it in the future.
Of course that Valve takes its time and for the quality we get in the final product I sometimes wish that the other companies were like Valve and Blizzard, not rushing unfinished products and developing good ideas. But sometimes I hate them for taking so long. For the moment we are looking forward for left4dead, and thats it, they will unveil something from here to the end of the year.
"The only reason The Orange Box exists is because all three of those new games happened to be finishing around the same time, I doubt that Ep 3 will be packaged in a new Orange Box type deal unless it happens to be finishing around the same time as a few other games.Agreed, I'm guessing it will either be something we don't see coming, or be standalone. Can't wait for it though!
It'll be stand alone at first,because if you've followed valve since half life 2,you know its an amazing company, but they're release date times are far from ever accurate. I doubt they would purposely wait to release it until another Portal or something else was done. I'd imagine it'll be for download on steam stand alone sometime in 09.
