Newell: Portal 2 is Valve's "Best Game"

"Oh Portal 2's great. It's the best game we've ever done," Valve's Gabe Newell tells 1UP in answer to the question of why the audience should be excited about Portal 2, their recently announced puzzle platformer sequel, saying: "It's pretty clear, just internally," when asked how he can say that about the project before its completion. When pressed for details about the game, the Valve Managing Director dodges: "Jonathan Coulton is awesome -- he's just brilliant; he's a joy to work with." Thanks Mike Martinez.

I was really hoping they'd be revealing Half-Life 3 at E3, since they announced Portal 2 last week. But since they released nothing new at GDC, I'm expecting E3 will be all about Portal 2 with not a word about Half-Life 3... bah.

I would just like to meet Gabe personally, look him straight in the eye, and say, "You have no intention of doing another Half Life, do you? Just say it so the rest of us can move on." Ugh.
Oh please. You don't really believe Valve isn't releasing another Half-Life. Obviously if they were doing another episode, it would've been released by now, so it stands to reason they're working on a full game. Episode Two came out about 2 years ago, so I predict that E3 2011 will have the big Half-Life 3 reveal, followed by a release before Christmas, making it about 4 years since Episode Two.
