Over 13 000 people played Half Life 2 today, I wonder what will be the final score.

Yes, Playing Half-Life 2 for a day will surely have such an impact on Valve. I bet they never planned that

Also Wow, CubeWorld , just when you get over the MineCraft addiction you find CubeWorld.

Valve are being giant dicks about the future of HalfLife. If it was 2010 it would have worked as a silence-before-the-big-surprise kind of thing but today it is just getting old.

You're missing the point. Valve have been dicking around with Half Life for a while now. HL2 has been delayed a lot, then they promised us new content periodically, with the latest episode being released in 2007 (Ep3 should have been released then). After that Valve just went silent and pretended nothing happened, while working on L4D, Portal and Portal 2, and Dead Island. Those of us who were hopeful of Ep3, or even Half Life 3 are just left hanging.

The only impact this was supposed to make is show Valve that we are still waiting for at least some information about what's happening with Half Life. We don't want them to rush or anything, but just giving us confirmation that Valve didn't just drop it. Seeing as there have been 10,000 more people playing HL2 in one day and almost making the top 10, that's a goddamn impressive achievement, even if Valve won't acknowledge it. They can't deny that the fanbase is entitled to information about the things that were promised about Half Life.

I don't know how Dead Island popped up on that list, but you get the gist. Wait, you don't. You nitpick posts to death to avoid meaning.

Do you naturally excel at hypocrisy, or is it something you had to work at?

Chill, guys. So there was a misunderstanding. Why not just explain it and move on rather than flame eachother? I was going to ask about the Dead Island thing as well..

Counter Strike GO, which I am looking forward to. Here's hoping that it comes with a zombie onslaught mode like the Zombie hell mod for CSS.

It is pretty fascinating that we will soon see L4D3 and there hasn't been a peep about HL3/ep3, the Half-Life series is much older.

This is just my opinion, but I don't see the attraction to the Half-life series any more. I finished 1, 2 and got halfway through Ep.2 and that was it for me, I couldn't take any more. That being said, I think the L4D Series is fantastic and fun multiplayer so I guess it's just because HL is solely a singleplayer experience.

Looking forward to more Valve games that aren't HL.

I still see the appeal, the lore is kind of intriguing. The amount of mods created for HL2 is a testament to that.

For me Half-Life is not just a game, it is more like a story which ending I want to see, or should I say experience, since the level of player immersion is like in none of the games I played.

That said HL3 is like Return Of the Jedi, LOTR Return Of The King, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows...

So basically, it's just a big giant battle with little-to-no story that will easily mark the lamest installment in the trilogy? Okay... (not really true for Harry Potter, but y'know)

What I love about the Half-Life world is how it blends modern times with the future, it doesn't suffer from everything-in-the-future-must-look-absurdly-futuristic syndrome. I also find the plot progression exciting, I'm dying to see the Borealis arch of the story in action.

Not to mention the production values, Valve are kings at sound design.

I loved that about Deus Ex 1.

IMO Two Towers and Empire Strikes Back were more disappointing than the last installments (not counting prequels).


I am reading an Octave tutorial and what did I find :

To print a message along with ringing the bell, you might modify the beep to look like this:

function wakeup (message)
printf ("\a%s\n", message);
endfunction

Calling this function using a statement like this

wakeup ("Rise and shine!");

Fudge. I hope I'm wrong, but I've just drawn a parallel between this comment and Mass Effect 3.

Knowing EA and how they will influence the production, I am thinking that they will skip 'Return of the Jedi' and go straight to 'The Phantom Menace' territory.

The Phantom Menace was better than Return of the Jedi.

Besides, I'm sick of people claiming that EA will ruin Bioware. Yeah, okay, the DRM/Origin and DLC/exclusive offers are really lame and inconvenient, but Mass Effect 2 which was made largely in the EA era of Bioware's timeline I still hail as the greatest game of all time. Bioware has remained an excellent developer even after EA's takeover. Claims that EA will destroy their games have no credibility at all.
