Last month, Valve revealed its first-ever Steam Awards. They came with a twist: a final category to be plucked from user submissions, many of which ended up being tongue-in-cheek. Now Valve’s revealed their selections, and sorry, but no: none of them acknowledge fans’ many write-ins of “the game most in need of a…
You’re probably wondering what’s taking Valve, a company with nigh-infinite resources, forever to make Half-Life 2: Episode 3. Or you’ve given up on that and you believe it’s going to be called Half-Life 3. The sad truth is that we will never see another Half-Life game from Valve, and for one very good reason: its…
A “Half-Life: 3" poster has been spotted at Gamescom. But don’t get excited just yet! This isn’t for Valve’s long overdue sequel. It’s for some world-class trolling.
Whether it’s called Half-Life: Episode 3 or just Half-Life 3, here’s a video put together by CrowbCat which collects interviews dating back as far as 2006 in which Valve boss Gabe Newell talks about a game that’s never actually coming out.
Valve will never release Half-Life 3. But what if other developers could take a swing at it? PC Gamer asked Cliff Bleszinski, Tripwire’s John Gibson and Bluepoint’s Kynan Pearson for their ideas, which range from VR adventures to time manipulation.
It’s the talk of the Internet: a big Steam “leak” just dropped, and people are saying it “confirms” things like PC ports of Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture and Journey. Oh, and some little game called Half-Life 3. There is, however, reason to be skeptical.
Hey Gordon, long time no see! When’s Half-Life 3 coming ou— oh. Yikes.
After all these years assuming we’d be finishing Gordon’s story, would the internet be ready for this? Actually, who cares, because this would be pretty great. Wake up and smell the ashes, Alyx...
Concept artist Shane Baxley knows. He knows deep down, like your or I do, that Half-Life 3 is never coming. Only instead of letting it hurt him, he got to work drawing. Dreaming.
Valve's virtual reality demo at the Game Developers Conference melted my brain. Afterward, my mind swam with possibilities. So of course, I ignored most of them and asked the age-old question: "Half-Life?" Surprisingly, Valve actually had an answer for me.
Breathe, people. Relax. Valve isn't holding a press conference today. And despite all the speculation you might have seen on social media or other gaming websites, they don't have some big GDC announcement planned for 3'0'clock this afternoon—3pm on 3/3—so please, don't get your hopes up.
He's just saying what we've all been thinking for, I dunno, the past ten years?!?!?!
It might seem like an odd fit at first, but Valve's legendary Half-Life series—with all its tug-of-warring alien factions infesting Earth—seems like it was practically made to play host to a strategy game—albeit in the same way the human body was "made" to be host to a headcrab. But hey, this one is free.
Everybody wants Half-Life 3, but this elaborate crowdfunding plot dreamed up by interns at marketing agency McKee Wallwork & Co is not how we're going to get it.
Ever the beacon of hope, resilience, and the most useful coping mechanism of all—denial—I continue to believe we'll see legendary shooter sequel Half-Life 3. Someday. Until then, we can always torture ourselves with great videos that make us desperately want to see more of this world. Good idea, no?
The reader blog over at Jalopnik got a pretty sweet deal last month: for just a few bucks they could get their names on a car that was competing in the famous 24 Hours Nürburgring endurance race in Germany. Thing is, not everyone who contributed went with their real name.
"Enter the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, an abandoned Apple store from hell." Way to completely transform the way I experience a beloved classic, Honest Game Trailers.
Last month Nvidia teased the upcoming release of the original Portal for its Tegra 4-powered Shield gaming portable. Good news — Portal is available on Google Play today. Better news — so is Half-Life 2.
Insert comment about Half-Life 3 taking too long here.
