    @merxworx01: yes that's exactly my impression too (sorry if i was unclear). it's my understanding that momentum behind In the Valley dissolved when they got to Valve and started chasing their passions...

    it was the consensus winner...which is different than 'best game.'my guess is it was the result of half truth and half exhaustion.

    yeah, the state of the forums is a bit of a bummer. one of the original selling points for the site (to me) was some downright pleasant and helpful interactions that demonstrated this was a unique pla...

  • mellotronrules posted a message in the forum topic Did Valve just announce a new Half-Life game?. on the General Discussion board
