Did Valve actually say there were working on HL3 at some point?

I don't remember if Valve ever directly mentioned Half Life 3. For a while Gabe referred to it as Ricochet 2 during interviews saying it was being worked on in various stages. It was confirmed last year Arkane Studios (Arx Fatalis, Dark Messiah, Dishonored) were pretty far into developing the final HL2 Episodes until that was canceled before being acquired by Zenimax.

Where HL3 stands now is anyone's guess.

ValveTime.net has good info on valve stuff. Based on their diggings into valve stuff, looks like the HL3/Episode 3 team was cut for a long period then brought to 20 people then ramped up to 40 late last year. It appears it's in production again, that's about it.

Ricochet 2 is humorously referred to as a variable for Half Life 3/Episode 3. Kind of a running joke that I think some fan started when he kept asking about it instead of HL3.

Anyone who is putting up a final review with a score for a multiplayer game before the public is able to access the servers should be ashamed. It's as if they learned nothing from SimCity and Battlefield 4. Controlled review environments do not represent the final environment. Giant Bomb has put a review up but without a score and have reserved the right to alter it accordingly after the public release before locking it as final. Anyone who has done otherwise shouldn't be trusted.

I would have to mostly agree. I thought the tutorial was well done but the game play from the tutorial alone turned me off to it. I believe though that this game should not have a final score prior to release...

RAGE was a disaster in every respect
I really don't know how people rag on RAGE for having bad graphics. That game could look absolutely STUNNING at times.
It was a technical marvel in it's creative approach to texture painting.
And no, textures that take 1/100 of a second to load doesn't bother me.

Also, the gunplay was a lot of fun


I have to agree, I Liked rage. Just didn't love it and would not buy it for $50 or $60. But, graphically it was amazing minus the time it took to load textures....

Looking forward to doom 4 here though.

It amazes me that companies involved in the arts (music, games, film, etc) have to vett their creative vision to mindless human garbage who almost always are totally clueless to the needs/wants of the marketplace.

Slightly off topic but man would I like to see a new Jedi Knight game. Those games were awesome with all the different Jedi powers that you could get. Why hasn't anyone made another one? There were those console games but they were nothing like the Jedi Knight games. /sigh

I don't know man, but Kyle Katarn and Jan Orrs are awesome yo. The originals were my favs, the new ones were alright too. One of them even had an expansion where you played as Mara Jade.

Jedi Knight MOTS, mysteries of the sith.

Wish I had the money I paid for the "Lifetime Subscription" back.

Why do you say that? I never played LOTRO, only DDO. Loved DDO until they brought in epic levels. Heard lots of good about LOTRO but never played.

The reason it is important is that it is not Microsoft and/or Windows!

I really doubt many people are actually going to care about that.

It's basically buying a PC to just play games, but that can't do other PC things, for something in the price range of a PC that can do PC things -and- play the games. It makes no sense and I don't understand why anyone at all is excited for Steam machines when the only thing they have going for them is that they're not Windows based.



The reason why i'm excited for steambox is because I believe it will bridge the gap between hardcore console/living room players and pc players. It will make communities larger and hopefully bring back modding.

Right now the gaming community is split between 3 platforms, PC, PS, and Xbox when that community used to be all on PC.

So consoles didn't exist until the PS and Xbox's of the world. Funny, I seem to recall playing on both computers and consoles since the early 80's. Frankly Im tired of all the elitist pricks that think gaming can't or shouldn't have multiple platforms. If you play on only one system, it's your loss.

And people saying you can only play games on the Steam Machine... They are a computer. You can dual boot windows. You don't even need to use SteamOS and yes of course you can use a mouse and keyboard. They are off the shelf parts.

Build your own, buy a prebuilt. No different than what you can do now. Just now you could use SteamOS if you want. I just want to buy a Steam controller.




You need to calm down lol.


A lot of people who buy consoles buy because they don't want to deal with upgrades, steam box kind of solves that issue for lazy people.

In the 80s and 90s.... console games and pc games were totally different. It wasn't until the early 2000s when you could buy a game that would have sold exclusively on PC for a console. Furthermore, you can't even make mods for console gaming and then Sony/Microsoft goes and shuts off multiplayer servers for some games then people are left with games they can't play anymore.

I really hope this follows the rainbow six, r6 rogue spear, and raven shield versions. Vegas versions looked wack.

We need a new Unreal Tournament, would be the perfect showcase for this new engine, but only if it follows the original version and not the 2004 editions, leave the steroid soldiers for Gears of War. Omit vehicles from it completely, just a pure adrenaline first person shooter with better graphics.

This...this....and this again!

Would be pretty awesome to not have vehicles, honestly i'm not a fan of vehicles unless its Tribes.

And.... a new UT would be awesome, so would a new Quake. Quake 4 sucked though, wish they could redo quake 2 and make it awesome. Le sigh, Epic and id days are long gone.

You just know that walker probably did some crazy stunts in movies where he could have died, goes on a joy ride and crashes into a tree?

The driver had about as much experience as one would expect to have and feel safe riding in a performance car.


So the guy driving the car also has a lot of racing experience, tons of experience. Paul Walker also had tons of racing experience. The car though is very difficult to drive and dangerous, its not the first Porsche GT that burned down and causd people to crash, check out the reviews. Very sad to have lost him

Lol @ everyone who gets so angry about crowd-funding. Seriously fun to watch you people bitch and moan about the success of others. Convinced anyone who whines about where other people put money is a teenager still under mommy's thumb who can't afford anything themselves. Aww you jealous you can't have nice things? Awww. LOL rage more please, please!


Seriosuly, people get their panties in a twist over anything. Many people were huge fans of the wing commander and space sim genre in general. Giving someone money who promises to deliver is the closest anyone can get to getting a real space sim game releaed. People are just paying (or buying) someone to deliver their hopes and dreams, whats wrong with that?

Sorry your rocket garbage wasted your fortune and BTW if anyone wanted 3d glasses we would ask.

No one asked for doom, quake, etc. and we got some awesome games. Why you so angry? Did he not hire you or something? Epic nerd rage.
