i Storm working on Daikatana at the
i. time, was otter at the
i nvidia booth getting a
i demo from one ofthe

i employees. In one of
i the demos, the silo
i tentacle smashes
i, through a window and
i picks up a scientist.
i. John had been pretty

There's a picture of him in a yearbook somewhere, and he looks skinny as **** .

I wonder if he goes on the internet and sees this kind of stuff, how he is worshiped as a god among us, who has simultaneously forsaken us.
User avatar #34 to #14 - deadmice (12/06/2013) [-]
no, he is a god
half life 3 is the second coming.
everyone speaks of it happening soon, but no-one knows when.
User avatar #36 to #34 - luthervonappledorf (12/06/2013) [-]
I have a horrible feeling that no matter how incredible they make it, it will never live up to expectations.
#53 to #36 - swarthywaffles (12/06/2013) [-]
Don't worry. That feeling is completely justified.
User avatar #142 to #36 - certifiedidiot (12/06/2013) [-]
They'll try their damnest best and they don't generally make ***** like nukem, so I think it'll be good, maybe it won't make my penis explode in one single huge orgasm good but it'll still be pretty damn good.

Like pizza.
User avatar #144 to #142 - luthervonappledorf (12/07/2013) [-]
But the hype. And the waiting. It's been so long that it just feels like it'll never match what we're all expecting.

Sure, it'll look incredible, the story will be magnificent and the game itself will be as close to perfect as they can make because this is the game that could cement them as the greatest studio ever, or completely destroy them.
User avatar #145 to #144 - certifiedidiot (12/07/2013) [-]
To be fair it's only been like 5-6 years. Or maybe seven.

Since episode 2 came out.
User avatar #146 to #145 - luthervonappledorf (12/07/2013) [-]
Only... considering they were supposed to do an Episode 3 as well, that's a very long time.
User avatar #147 to #146 - certifiedidiot (12/07/2013) [-]
I can't say it enough, **** the episodes, Gabe even said they dropped that.

And to be fair, they were constantly working on Half-Life til then.

Also, they are working on Half-Life 3, but usual Valve haven't announced anything official
User avatar #148 to #147 - luthervonappledorf (12/07/2013) [-]
I doubt they will until they've got it all finished, just to be safe.

It's going to be ******* insane when they do announce it.
