damnnit Gabe, really? No other sequel needs to be made for any of other Valve franchise

Original content is a blessing to the gaming industry.

Seriously though, if it's not Portal 2 or HL2 Episode 3, then what is it?

Tzekelkan:
Wait, maybe I misunderstood. All Gabe Newell said was that the image was fake, not that the surprise isn't Episode 3? I don't really mind if they keep stalling it, but I just don't see how people came to the conclusion that it most definitely isn't Ep3.

What if its something...
New?
Not a sequel...

I would like a episode 3

I'm not a huge VALVe fanboy but I would like to see a episode 3 just to finish off Half-life 2

Right. Missed that, thanks!

If it's not Episode 3, I hope it's a new IP and not another sequel.

My money is on either Half Life2: Episode 2: Chapter 1 or L4D3. Or L4D2: Episode 1.

Fuck sake.

Does he not realise Ep 3 is the only announcement we actually want to hear?

Watch it be something goofy like a Valve multiplayer pack with Counterstrike, TF2, L4D 1/2 being released as a $40 or $50 retail package.
I'm going to go with pretending it's that, so in the event it is something good, it will shatter my expectations and I can be excited about it.

But I think Valve knows they've left many a player with gaming blue-balls, and should get to finishing a certain something...

If not Portal 2 or Episode 3, I'd like a remake of Half-Life for consoles. I know someone did Black Mesa:Source, but a good remake with the Source engine for PS3 or 360 would be nice.

BIG LOL from me, and an internet cookie :)

It might still be episode 3, but not in the form of a HL2 episode. The reason ep. 3 have been so long underway might be because they're simply making it into HL3 with a new engine and all.

Of course not. If they hadn't said it wasn't Ep3 now, then it wouldn't really matter what was coming out, because everyone would be angry they aren't getting Ep3.

This is just getting laughable. Valve are comfortably resting on their laurels, grinning smugly to themselves, and when they do finally release the damn thing (with a minimalistic graphical upgrade, if the fans are lucky) people will happily shell out their money in a near-orgasmic frenzy and praise to the heavens the existence of an outdated expansion to an outdated game.

Johnny Cain:
As long as it's NOT Counter-Strike I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

You may be disappointed. Tactical Intervention(Counterstrike 2) is in beta and E3 seems like the perfect time to announce a release date.

I wouldn't be too surprised if it was something new. I mean, they were just getting the hang of keeping everything updated and in order so they absolutely NEED something else to distract themselves. Congratulations to them for that, at least they're not pissing away time on Facebook.

This is why I don't jump to conclusions about Valve PR anymore.

It will probably be something about Portal 2. I am pretty uninsterested about Portal 2, L4D3 or Ep3, unless it is something like The Orange Box. That package was really cool, since I would have been pretty pissed of if I had to pay full price for any of those games.

jamesworkshop:
Perhaps its Half life 3 who says they need to make a third episode

You obviously didn't finish episode 2... Although it has massive spoilers, go check it on youtube... I will wait.

If it's anything less than a new game engine Valve have been slacking.

It probably is Portal 2, they're just creating some hype. From what I remember, wasn't the cancellation/surprise press release written in GLADOSS style?

Left 4 Dead 3 would be funny just to watch fanboys' heads explode.

December 21, 2012- Half-Life Episode 3, Duke Nukem Forever, and Diablo 3 all release on the same day. The happiness in the world causes it to explode. lol

Outright Villainy:
Team fortress for mac

If, after cooking up all this hype, they announced Team Fortress for mac, Gabe Newell would become the E3 buffet's main course. Granted, he would make one HELL of a main course, but still...

its not gonna be episode 3 its gonna be half life 2 episode 3.5, valve has already had episode 3 out for their team for a year and they decided to release a better one for the public.
that or a new source engine or counter strike (beta is really a test for the new game?)
could aslo be that DoTA that they are apparently working on.
if its L4D3 someone at valve is going to die

Well, lets hope its somthing bigger and better.

thenumberthirteen:
What could the surprise be now? Team Fortress 3?

O.M.F.G

It better not be a Team Fortress 2 sequel. I just bought 2. 2 is enough, we have good updates for it.

Anyways, my money is on Left 4 Dead 3.

Maybe the surprise is that Gabe Newell was lying about the surprise not being Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

There is still hope!

/naive optimism

Hell, they've left it so late that they'rejust creating more work for themselves in updating the game engine as well. If they'd followed up straight after episode 2, it would have been better all round.

At this point I think Valve has just realized that Portal and Left 4 Dead makes them more money than Half-Life, and forgotten about it. Kinda hard to blame them with how much money Portal and L4D are bringing in. (Although that wouldn't explain why they've been giving out free updates to TF2 for the last 3 years).

Its going to be the game they are making in collaboration with icefrog (DoTA developer). You heard it here first kids

This "surprise" better be something really awesome, or I'll be pissed

FUCK YOU VALVE!!! Seriously Episode 3 was the only thing that I was hoping to hear from Valve this year.

FinalDream:
...I am so dissapointed and angry. Why won't they tell us anything regarding ep 3?

BECAUSE HE IS ATAN i've told you people before gabe newman is satan thats why half life is so good its made with the infinite power of the devil

How about a brand new IP?

Although, I would be pretty happy if it's TF2 for mac and free.
