News Comments > Half-Life 3 ARG Speculation Abounds
17. Re: Half-Life 3 ARG Speculation Abounds Jun 28, 2013, 10:59 ViRGE
 
but one of these days an announcement will actually come, right?
If Valve doesn't want to make HL3, then they won't make HL3. It could very well never arrive, as Valve is going to do whatever they find interesting/profitable.

Their success with Steam ensures that they never have to actually finish anything if they don't want to. Which puts them in the literary equivalent of getting half-way through a project and realizing you did all the fun stuff, and all that's left is the hard work (an all too common problem for nerds).

Wow! You guys know Atlus? When I read the headline, I was like "WHO?" Seems they release JRPGs, and that's why I don't know them. So, I hope for the fans of JRPGs that they can be "rehabilitated".

Atlus does JRPGs, but they aren't just JRPGs. They create and translate quirky Japanese games. Their games tend to be very unique. It can be nice to play something different from time to time, hence why losing Atlus would suck. They are the company willing to take risks on things no one else would. As mentioned they brought Demon's Souls to countries outside of Japan when no one else thought it could succeed.
They're also the publisher for the Trauma Center games, Catherine, and the forthcoming Dragon's Crown.

She definitely is my favorite female actor and she conveys alot more depth than other popular actors like Stephen Blum

really? i thought blum was perfect with his understated approach to Spike in cowboy bebop. also samurai champloo.
IMHO, the only logical thing to do is to pair Blum and Hale together.

"Unnecessarily" if you didn't want to play it any more, I guess. The servers were shut down.
Exactly. It was Steamworks or nothing for CoH1. For CoH2 I'm not sure they really have a choice either; what else would you even use these days? Origin?

Anyhow, my patch-weary bones are glad that this is being launched on a service that will take care of all of this automatically. The heavy DLC is odd, but since it's skins I can't really complain.

Alright -- someone give me the short version explanation of what these "Steam Trading Cards" are. I have not been paying attention.

You get cards for playing certain games (games added all the time). Sets of cards unlock small frilly stuff (backgrounds for your profile, etc) and give you XP. XP is what determines your steam level. Cards can be traded or sold.

Not a big deal, but if you have the collector twitch, it's something else to do.

That sounds like it's more targeted towards the OCD crowd than the collector crowd...

I kept getting this and that other PS3 game Ellen actually worked on crossed...up until it was released, I thought The Last Of Us was the Ellen Page game...

Okay, good, so it wasn't just me that kept thinking that. I didn't realize that wasn't her game, and that Beyond Two Souls was.

Then why are they doing a freemium model?
It's not freemium. It's a standard buy-to-play game; nothing is free.

Can Microsoft’s exFAT file system bridge the gap between OSes?
It works on the OSes that matter (Win and Mac). So yes.

Zero dollar is a good price, but that's way too much effort to make it zero dollars.

Agreed. It's more effort than I'd care to go through just to get a free copy of A:CM.

Yeah this is business as usual for Assassin's Creed on the PC platform.
For an AC game a few weeks as opposed to a few months is doing well, all things considered.

I didn't think it came off as whiny. I thought it came off as anger. Obviously Hines knows why the game isn't up to standard and he's pissed about it but for whatever reason can't or won't say exactly why right now.
Yeah, I guess you're right; that is more angry than it is whiny. Still, it's surprisingly unhinged for a PR statement.

The existence of Half-Life 3 isn't news; the only question is, which decade will it be released?
I think you mean millennium, since we technically had to wait a millennium for HL2.
