OK people, this is all the HL3 we're going to get.
I'll take what I can get. After HL2ep2, closure is all I've wanted. Still, forget Valve!

seems like a lot of words to say nothing
I suspect this is just a gift to the community and not actually what they had planned, because if he revealed the end of a story which valve owned, even if they never use it, I think they could and would NAIL him. but it IS shallow enough to be a game story
The guy is the lead writer of the Half-Life series. It may just be "fan fiction", but second to Gabe Newell, he's the only other person in the world that has the authority to claim what is and isn't Half-Life.
In practice, I don't expect the final game would go like this, because rarely does a game stick exactly to the script. But I could easily see this being a Half-Life game, and a fun one at that.
(And I really doubt Valve is going to mind. NDAs expire for a reason, and they obviously don't care about Half-Life anymore)
