Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

It appears that Valve's Gabe Newell, during a briefing at the company's Seattle HQ, has hinted, to Swedish journalists, that development on Half-Life 3 is already under way.
It would seem strange to accept that Mr. Newell, who refuses to even mention H-L 2, decided to talk to journalists about Valve's plans for a third title in the series.

Strange is not impossible however and the details about Valve plans for Half-Life 3 seem rather plausible and in-line with what the developer has promised so far. In any case it would be naive to believe that Valve are not already actively engaged in planning the third installment of what is, after all, a guaranteed success.

According to reports then, Mr. Newell told the journalists that H-L 3 plans include the conversion of Alyx Vance from a NPC to a fully playable character. Alyx is Gordon Freeman's female sidekick in H-L 2. The revelations did not stop there however and Mr. Newell also promised plenty of alien-based revelations.

There is no way of confirming that Gabe Newell actually made those comments since no one expects Valve to comment, especially for as long as H-L 2 remains without a confirmed release date. This is a story which will fizzle-out by the time Half-Life 2 actually ships but one which we expect to hear a lot more of, once the second installment passes its sales peak.

Oh, and some more - if you buy the newer Radeon cards, highsider, you get the game free, but it's just a voucher - it lets you download it from Steam when it's actually released.And as to HL3 - I seem to remember a situation somewhat like this with HL1.The only difference is that now lots of people know about the game and Valve made the mistake of hyping HL2 up too much

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

they are just plain stupid.its not smart putting out release dates after relase dates.. thy are just dissapointing us, its just pissing us off.. dont tell us when to go to the store just to get disapointed u stupid matha f......so i think im just gonna download it instead when it gets out.. :)

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

Half life 2 is jsut a stupid hype. Its a lame game. Ive seen clips ive seen it all except the the actual game, which no one has senn unless they illegaly downloaded the leak. Far cry is a good game on the other hand. Goto that and stuff hl-2 yet alone hl-3 **rolls eyes**. Now lets look at the specs issue. OMG hl-2 is high enough already >.<, Now lets goto hl-3. Geforce 10900Ti 3.5gb ram, 5ghz and 10gb**sigh**

Man I'm getting tired from this Half-Life-3-release-wait-to-2005-for-Half-Life-2-my-system-is-too-slow-and: LET THEM FIRST RELEASE HALF-LIFE 2 AND THEN START TALKING ABOUT HALF-LIFE 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(sigh)

Typical valve.... Valve owes you shit so stop taking it to the ass when hl2 is delayed. They gave you updates and gave you plenty of mod support for HL for 5 f**king years, give me a break. HL2 will be released this year so quit getting your panties in a bunch. SOftimage has been released for hl2. The basic SDK should be soon. With that you can expect the game to go gold. Summer/Holiday season seems perfect. Now stop bitching and demanding and just wait, I don't see this much fuss around doom3 who has just as much been delayed.

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

why would they even think about hl3 considering the state oh hl2? ill bet newell's trying to cover his big ass for something hes done...ah well, f**k it.To Anonymousat 17:28 24/3/2004i dont think that anyone cares about doom3...well lets face it, the first two were shit except for multiplayer. and i bet i know whats gonna happen with doom4: same engine but with different levels and 2 more weapons. f**kers

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

I don't mind if they go into pre-development for HL3 (storyline, character sketches, etc...), but they really should finish HL2 before they start the actual technological creation of HL3. If the two are released to close together, it will downplay the integrity of HL2.

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

"There is no way of confirming that Gabe Newell actually made those comments"..........etc...Quit jumping to conclusions...although personally, I think it would be stupid to NOT indulge at least some minor information on a future release. Especially such an illustrious title as HL. They are in it for the money, don't make it into such a personal matter.

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

Howay lads. I read the comments Gabe made and they were just that comments. He just about fit it all in to one sentence. Megagames has just stretched what they heard into what they call 'news'.So Alyx is gonna be in a game of her own...doesnt mean she doesnt die in hl2. They could base it before hl2 couldnt they? And I think we all knew already that any hl2 expansion would include aliens...

"Gamereactor has just come home after being away for three days in Valve, Seattle where we've taken a closer look at the coming Half-Life 2. In an interview with the companies VD(Vice Director or whatever) Gabe N00b it was revealed that Valve has already started "drawing up lines"(raw translation by me because I don't know how to put the sentence into English grammar) and making idea for the third game in the series. N00b told Gamereactor exclusivily that they want to develop and let the played get deeper within the complex story that Half-Life 2 has to offer. The female ally Alyx will most likely be playable in the third game and more theories around alien life will be in it. Gamereactor has as the only scandinavian magazine played several levels in Half-Life 2 and will be giving a large, exclusive preview about how promising the game looks in our coming May issue.Below you see pics of Petter when he's visiting Valves Seattle office earlier this week and how he poses with the producent Gabe N00b.Valve was also very happy over that Half-Life has been 'ranked' the best game ever in the latest issue of Gamereactor."Translated from utter garbage btw.

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

Half-life 2 won't make a impact like the first one, as many companies have copied many of the ideas from the first and i doubt they will be as radical as HL1.Also the graphics engine will be better than any other to date, but deus ex 2 has shown (in some areas) it was up to the standard.I'll still buy it, but i'm not as exicited as i once was because of the delays.

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

YE YE YE Hl III gets released before HL II gets ! Im sure !So please Mr Newell finish your game before you even think about HL III. And dont let it be a "daikatana-disaster" ;-).Because gamers all over the world are waiting for your product!

I bet that Gabe found out that alot of people are not excited about Half Life 2 so he threw some HL3 crap to make people happy.Alot of people are saying that Valve is in Seattle, HOLY SHIT IM FROM COVINGTON THATS LIKE 40 MILES AWAY! maybe I can do something BBBAADDD to the office, like spray paint "Half Life 2 = VaporWare f0x0rz!" take a picture and cycle it around the internet!Of course if I get arrested again, damn im going to juvie for a lllooonnnggg time.

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

man this is old news, i just interviewed sum valve officials and the commented that they had already finished halflife4 and had begun halflife5!!!too bad they will all suck thouas for hl2... it will be out 2009 :P

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

Remeber blue shift and opposing force? They were not Half-Life 2 and 3 but expansions, so this is proabebly <-- difficult 2 spell) just an expansion not a new game, were you will se the same story from Half-Life 2 just from Alyx's view. And btw: she might die. The other Half-Life games did not have a happy ending... apart from blue shift... witch sucked...

Gabe Newell Comments on H-L3

i lost my faith in ID software once i saw that they got the signup with nvidia for doom3. "nVIDA" REALY messed up with their gefocefx series and the simple fact that ati kicked their arses just made me cry of joy! doom won't pervill but hl2 will.f**k the nvidian dreamers and id's blind followers!
