    Actually not nice. It's just way too obvious.
    Also, this game is under development and every idiot in the planet knows that. People are waiting for a release date, trailer , information. Something like that. A simple announcement is no big deal.

    I know. It was meant to be a fucking fake. The first picture though is un-altered, and with a little bit of imagination, it could really be a "3".

    Half-Life went from an OK shooter to the Episode 2. What do you think? That bitch Alyx that you can't just shoot and play the game - the nerd's dream apparently. You gotta care about her too. Give HL3 to Bioware they will make it a logical conclusion.
    Gordon going from a badass motherfucker to a pussy-licker. Fuck yeah.

    I like the Half Life 2 games. Sure, they're no Max Payne or Far Cry or F.E.A.R, but they are pretty good.

    HL2+Episodes were nice, but marred by linearity and some derpy console shit like weak rockets and pattern attacking helicopters dropping explosive beach balls you could chuck back at them.

    Also:
    Improved for moar ambiguity.

    And lulz.

    Gordon is in no way, shape or form a badass motherfucker. Or even a character.

    This.
    Gordon is first and foremost player's avatar and everything about HL tries to not interfere with this function. He doesn't speak, he doesn't even grunt or scream when hurt, player never sees anything from any other perspective, but Gordon's eyes.

    Gordon is effectively a character-shaped player envelope.

    The only character like qualities he has are name, face and topic of his doctoral thesis.

    Not when one is doing that from under a heel


    In 98 Gordon just opened the door and shot every fucker inside
    Today he just watches as Alyx tries to crawl through that door while trying to make those polygons of her look KEEEEEWT ^___^ and stuffies

    Try explaining that to your average 1337 gam0r. Mr. Freeman regularly wins every "BEST CHARACTER EVA" voting competition.
    I tried telling people it's the game they really like, not the character, but to no avail because Gordon Freeman is totally not in any way like the Doom marine.

    Well, he fills a different role in backstory, being scientist rather than trained popamoler, but it doesn't make him a full blown character, not to mention he turns out to be a natural popamoler after all.

    Funny enough I have zero desire to play HL3. Still haven't played Portal 2. Valve games are fairly mediocre -- they just cover that with a lot of polish and marketing. The game play itself on nearly all of their games is bland and generic. I'll play Dota 2 but that's Dota... Valve didn't design it. Of course, aside from the Half-Life series they really didn't design any other of 'their' games, either.

    HL2 ep 1 has no vehicle sequences, thank god. I myself enjoyed the Half-life games, story, while somewhat standard is interesting and thanks to valve's narrative, really managed to keep me interested. I agree that the episodes (in paticulair EP2) were mostly about babysitting Alyx.
