Name Game: Let's Not Talk About It

a little demonic, don't you think?

I thought the bad thing this week was Leslie Nielsen dying.

Is anyone truly suprised? I mean its called Valve time for a reason...

Hardy har. I remember when I would get upset/severely annoyed at that. Not too many games have me that excited for anymore. I dunno if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

You could always freeze yourself and be unfrozen in April. As long as you don't overshoot and end up too far in the future.

Pfft, it's only 2 months.

For Valve that's a light nap.

As long as Valve maintains their high standards of quality games then i do not care how long it takes for a game to be released. I can wait 5-6 years (Half-Life 2) for a game if it turns out to be one of the best games ever released and worth the time spent in development than get another game every year and when turns out to be another mediocre title (current franchises).

Waiting 10 years for SC2 was not worth it :(

It is a good thing then that Activision Blizzard are not making Portal 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

EmzOLV:
Aww I really liked it! How funny :) I have a friend like that - we don't mention the H word anymore...

What you mean Half-Life Episode 3?

:( Sigh.....Surely you can't be serious?

Leslie Nielsens's Ghost: He is and don't call him Shirley

MEANWHILE, AT VALVE

How was that bad? O_o

On topic. It's only 2 months. even if it goes into Valve time, I don't really care. I have other games. :P

How did you manage to capture my frustration in but one tiny comic strip? Magic!

...and I think I can safely say Episode Three is only taking forever because they're building a new engine for it. Ergo; Half-Life 3.

Gah poor Alix... I'm not that pissed about this though.

Guffe:
Why would you post something you don't want to talk about?

lololololololololololololololololol

anyway, umm, huh. Portal two delayed? valve really likes doing that, huh?

lol. I loved the last frame. That made me laugh.

bdcjacko:
Yeah, we should all let our lives revolve around video games.

.....you realize that you're on a gaming forum, right?

OT: I know that feeling....Diablo 3....will you really ever come out within my lifetime?

What you mean Half-Life Episode 3?

Yeah pretty much - although any talk of any episode will consequently end up in the same place so it's pretty much avoided at all costs haha!

Phew, for a second I thought you didn't get the joke.
Now I know.

1) I got the joke, just didn't find it funny
2) I know this is an entertainment website, mostly geared towards video games
3) I comment on unfunny things asking them to be funnier because if this forum expects me to pay for content I want the content to be good.

Yeah... Hi!

You chose to pay for the publisher's club and the publisher's club just gets rid of ads really... Forum didn't EXPECT you to do anything. I didn't pay for it.

by forum, I meant website, way to split hairs. Still the comic sucks.

Indeed.

No you didn't. This is a subtley nuanced joke. If you were clever enough to understand it, you totally would be laughing your ass off right now.

I LOL'ed at the comic...

But this one...

*Puts Sunglasses*

...takes the cake.

She should just be happy she isn't waiting for Duke Nukem Forever....

Valve, the ultimate trolls, they will never get the ban hammer, because they have more money then you. :(

Trivun:
Awwwww, poor poor Alix... :P. Still holding out. I wonder what would happen if you mentioned "Episode Three" to her...?

I had not seen this series due to my lack of attention, but now that I have read all your comic strips, I am liking what you have going on here a lot. Keep up the great work! :D

But yeah... it is really sad they announced 2 more months to go...

Well I mean come on, It is valve time. For every person that disses mr. I am to busy eating my cheese burgers Gabe Newell, it is another month of delay. Wait a second... FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU----- T.T

Scrumpmonkey:
I think this is relevant;

problem gamers?

you know what just reminded me of

I find it very funny that the valve developer community page lists Episode 3 as coming out 'coincident with the Rapture.'

mew4ever23:
This is actually the first I'd heard of the latest portal 2 delay.

This was the first I had heard of portal 2

It's Valve time. That's something totally different.

Monshroud:
See I have come to accept "Valve Time" so I am actually not expecting Portal 2 until October of 2011.

How's this for an old quote? Still, I bet you were pleasantly surprised come 2011.

LOL, yes as a matter of fact I was. I gotta ask, were you just bored and reading through old forum topics?

Uh, I can't exactly remember. I think I got to this topic via Related Articles from the Name Game strip about Portal 2, which I got to from the Random Comic button.
