I'm just amazed it's taking this long. With all of the brilliant minds Valve has on staff, how can it possibly be taking this long?
Perhaps because there isn't any management structure and employees are free to work on whatever project they feel like. However, you only have to look at Team Fortress 2 to see that a huge delay isn't necessarily a bad thing for a project.

I suppose. But they managed to get the HL episodes and Portal 2 out in a pretty reasonable length of time. I wouldn't think there's any shortage of people at Valve who'd be interested in working on HL3.

CoD lost its lustre on me long ago. I'm kind of shocked it's still so insanely popular. High production values, but I'm so damn bored of the subject matter.

I've been playing for a bit over a week. It's not much fun, and there's a helluva lot of waiting for shit to happen. It made me re-install The Settlers 7, though.

Excellent! $15 was a bargain. Can't wait to see what they do with it.

It really does sound like an amazing place to work. They seem to focus on hiring generally smart people with good work ethic, and then let them sort things out. I need to find a better job.

News Comments > Apple's Cook Visits Valve?
10. Re: Apple's Cook Visits Valve? Apr 13, 2012, 22:34 Riker
 
Valve is designing an exclusive flagship game for Apple's new iPanel TV/console/living room appliance. You heard it here first!

More realistically, I wonder if perhaps Apple will use Steam as its primary game delivery system for iPanel. But then Apple already has the app store. Hmmm.

And how does this tie in to Valve's hardware aspirations? The plot thickens.

The magic system is IDENTICAL to Dungeon Master. I'm guessing you're a young pup, right?

I'm in my 30s. I just don't like it.

Fun so far.

Magic system is shit, shit, shit. I was surprised and disappointed to discover that combat is a real-time whack-a-mole clickfest rather than turn-based, but it's not a huge deal. But the option sure would be nice. And where's the goddamn health potions at?? But ya... fun so far.

The problem isn't solely that the ending ignores everything personal about your journey; it's that it's a really shitty ending. The more analysis I read about it, the more pissed off I become.

They need to go back to the drawing board and retcon that motherfucker.

That really sucks. Here's hoping this Kickstarter/fuck-the-publishers movement starts to transform the industry.

Music by Mike Morgan... the incredibly atmospheric music from Fallout 1 and 2 is among the very best video game music ever. Awesome.

Not even certain the FPS is still being worked on - we've seen nothing in over a year, right? At this point maybe they even renamed it.
That piece of shit is still in production, unfortunately. I'll take this XCOM reimagining over a throwaway FPS any day.

Looks terrific. I'm surprised to read it's been in development since 2008... doesn't seem like a game like this would take that long, but I'm glad they're putting some time and effort and money into it.

Um yeah, if BioWare wants to take an early retirement from MMOs, I'll be just fine with that.
