Gaben suck am i right ?

The only thing that makes me think we could get a half life release is the amount of hate artifact got. Valve not releasing hl is tainting it's current and future endeavours
Neil (10 months ago)
Look how it's tainting DOTA's reviews for example, if this is kept up they will be forced to eventually release one. If Gaben came out and said sorry for not releasing it for X reason and it will be released in an appropriate time frame 2+ years I'm sure fans would forgive this and settle down. But I have no idea how valve will react to this shitstorm caused by artifact.

Valve doesn't have any writers hired anymore. So, for HF3 to happen, it would either have to be with completly new writers (and forget the legendary talent of Marc Laidlaw's) or it would have to be made by another company. Both of these options are trash, so it's better that HF3 never happens then to throw it away in a desperate effort to please angry people on the internet.
Faylum1 (10 months ago)
There is something *VERY IMPORTANT* that everyone seems to have missed. Lets say some form of HL is in development secretly. How exactly do you expect it to release when Gabe is gaining more weight than George R.R. Martin? GABE will be dead from obesity by the time they green light a HL game.

Some things in this video now seem a little ironic, with Laidlaw having published his draft of the plot of the final episode... (Also DANG the BreenGrub thing actually had a reasoning behind it)
Braindawg (10 months ago)
Well shit. Half life is finally dead...
Raider (10 months ago)
Welp.... He just released the story.... Fuck.

BreenGrub makes so much more sense now with the release of half life 3's story.

If valve wants is money, why not release half-life 3? probably waiting for the new Source 2 engine, and VR technology! so what do you guys think?
zamardii12 (1 year ago)
Jesus... wtf has Marc been writing over 9 years of no Half Life games? lol. He probably wrote enough story up to Half Life 10.

I'd rather have a good game later than a bad one now, let valve take their time.

Hey, just curious, and I know this video is kind of old. But how do you know the writers go about writing the game in such a crazy way?
Gordonkris (2 years ago)
Maybe he wrote the story for HL3 and then retired, because he thought he could never give a better gift to mankind.
Tade tad (2 years ago)
NOOOOOOO please !!!! we are waiting
djeezes (2 years ago)
Perhaps he thought, I'll retire once hl3 is finished.

"And so half-life 3 stepped into the anals of history. But struggles of the fanbase is a story without end. Because valve. Valve never changes..."
jeff park (2 years ago)
Am i the only one who gives 0 fucks about half-life. when i was playing the game i thought it was boring as fuck. the story might be interesting but is it really all that good? I like CS:GO and Portal1 & 2 but other than that, Valves games does nothing for me. And Gabe is a dick. he gives no info on half-life 3 even though he knows how much people want it. he is laughing at all of you.
DarkeTribute (2 years ago)
I really want to try those books now. I also wanted to read some Phillip K Dick, so I've got a lot to add to my wish list.

This franchise has been doomed since the first game. Game franchises with no set goals never finish what they start.

I have brother and sister.I am middle child.That means that our parents have 3 children.Those are us.What does have number 3? Half Life 3.That means... HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!Or is it?

okay everyone one lets just face it, we are in denial that half life 3 is never coming out.
Hadi Malhi (2 years ago)
i wish half life 3 will realease in 2016 but not 17
xPokemonPlayerx (2 years ago)
+Hadi Malhi Why not 2017?
The Prussian (2 years ago)
Sorry, but for me this is the last straw. Mark Laid-law gone means that Half Life 3 has become basically an impossible project which people at Valve are reluctant to deal with. You said last time half-life 3 must be coming out for source 2. Well source 2 is out now. It's been 10 years nearly and we have not heard anything official regarding HL3. I just cannot be bothered to keep waiting and hoping any more :(
fasolmateusz (2 years ago)
... I might be going a little off-topic here, but I am wondering how might Valve handle relocating player from White Forest to Borealis. Of course, HL3 release is rather far in the future, but according to HL2E2 plot many players must expect to see Borealis, located somewhere far away. So far VALVE used to avoid any cutscenes and showed the plot from first person perspective, but a long journey via submarine might pose a formiddable challenge. Of course - chapter including Borealis in HL3 in who-knows-how-distant-future is not certain, but, imho, well suggested in HL2E2. What do you guys think?
CSM-101 (2 years ago)
Half Life story is 100% finished. It's a fact. We just need a new game to tell this story.
Lennon Pender (1 year ago)
how is its story over over at all? have you ever played them?
Over Insane (2 years ago)
If valve hasnt done much to the Half Life franchise, then they mightve forgot, or are doing their best to make it turn out like the other games did ( in that case, absolutely beautiful )
Ryan Dwyer (2 years ago)
would be super funny, if it releases and we all just don't care anymore cx lol I know my father is one of the people who just stopped caring and won't buy it when it comes out.

How Valve needs to do HL3: Upon its announcement, release HL2:EP3, and make the HL3's release like 5 months out.
Maxx (2 years ago)
Guys valve is working on L4D3 look it up
Demegor (2 years ago)
at this point with people dieing literally for HL3 its just not worth it. like I stopped caring a long time ago and even if it came out today I wouldn't care XD

Clinton (2 years ago)
Guys I figured it out. The only radionuclide with an atomic mass of 3 is hydrogen 3 also known as tritium. The symbol for this isotope is 3H. The half life of 3H is 12.32 years (12 years and about 117 days). Half Life 2 was released on November 16, 2004. Add 12 years and 117 days and you get the release date of Half Life 3: March 10, 2017! Mark your calendars!

hi im dave (2 years ago)
I found this article on the internet about a kind of Half Life 2.5: http://www.theverge.com/2016/1/18/10785556/half-life-2-mod-sequel-expansion-prospekt-release-date Called Prospekt. You can actually find it on Steam, so it's real. This isn't Half Life 3, but we have a new Half Life Like game.

I just really hope half life 3 will be confirmed, not released. just confirmed
Lenny H (2 years ago)
Can someone tell me good reasons why Valve hasn't already released Half-Life 3/Episode 3? Half-Life is a critically acclaimed and highly successful series and tons of people would by a new game. I just don't get it. Now they wait till nobody cares anymore like with Duke Nukem Forever.
Burns (2 years ago)
+Lenny H Dont listen to these people. There are many good reasons why valve has not released hl3 out yet, or talked about it. Like what happened to hl2 when they announced it. Its like these people are grumpy old dudes saying "its been night time for nearly 7 hours! the sun will never come out" And then the sun comes out...
Horny Fruit Flies (2 years ago)
Because mp games with micro-transactions are a LOT more profitable that sp straightforwad games like half-life that can't be milked to the limit.
Sh00peh (2 years ago)
This story just screams of internal conflict within Valve.
JJ Warner (2 years ago)
"One of Half-Life's most revolutionary features was the ability to tell the game's story without taking control away from the player" Something that seems to have been almost entirely forgotten in modern titles. A shame, really.

R.I.P Half life 3. The most over-hyped games never released.
Hellsong89 (2 years ago)
+Da Wrongbear Probably cause its over-hyped. They make so much money in other ways its not financially needed or even vise decision. There is so much fans for HL that if there is anything wrong in the game its going to be shit storm. People also have had so much time to think about their own personal wet dreams how the game should be that even if the game is absolutely perfect for majority.... there will be shit storm of century coming what ever the case. It could and most likely would be disaster for valve and they dont want to risk it, when they can keep legendary image with out doing nothing, but sell other peoples games. Personally.. i just would like to play it. Games are art form and there is no right answer... other than dont sell 1/3 of the game in full AAA price and rest in DLC...-.- and things like that.

anyone can say what is the mod that is shown at 2:51?
dfshjb44 (2 years ago)
Can we just accept that Half Life 3/episode 3 is never going to come out? Valve has shown their true colors over the past couple years and the disdain they have for gamers. Paid mods anyone?

WOOOOOO!! Source 2 SDK ! .... Mr. Freeman's cool and all, but be honest with yourselves, Fanboys. You know in your hearts that GabeN isn't just building pirate ships IRL with all that steam money. You KNOW a lot of it's been going back into making this engine better and making the TOOLS for that engine ever BETTERER
The ironic thing about this is that I am playing through the 1998 release of Half-Life on my Athlon 64 PC.

"INCOMING!!!!! HALF LIFE 4 CONFIRMED MEME!!!!!!!!"
The game isn't coming out. The hype has been long dead, my friend, however I do appreciate the effort of trying to cling on the the thinnest sliver of hope the one day, all gamers, pc or console, we unite and play the mythical Half Life 3. But face it, Fallout 4 is here. And not only that, waves of other new and exciting games are on their way, and quite frankly, Half Life is dead in the water. Even if it were to release, the Internet and gamers in general have evolved and no longer are interested in valve's signature style of gaming mechanics. The industry has changed, and Valve isn't involved not even in the slightest. Although a fan can hope, I have come to the point of being no longer hyped, anticipated, or even remotely interested in this game coming out. EVER. The Free Man Is Dead.

RIP Hl3. GGWP. Now that this guy is leaving, it'd be best not to make any HL3 at all, it won't be nearly as good.

Wait?We wait 9 years to wait that game!Maybe Gaben is dead before hl3 comes out.How about we hack into Valve's server,to find out what the fuck is going on there?
Leenat (2 years ago)
So maybe he was givven a task to write the game story. Maybe not one game but 4-5??? And story is done and he left! That could mean valve can start working on it!

HL3 released!
GooGuGajoob (2 years ago)
...Honestly, how the fuck is Half-Life 3 gonna be a good game. By today's standards, it's the base of Generic shooters. All this speculation that Half Life 3 isn't dead, like...of course it won't be. It's just 'never say never,' but how the hell do you think it's honestly gonna be fantastic? Cuz of Valve? Bro...did you play Portal 2? Do you want another walk in the park? Fucking Alien Swarm? Like, c'mon guys! Just find something else and when Half Life 3 comes out, then take it as it is. Quit speculating (though you won't, cuz that's like the meat and potatoes of your channel isn't it!)
Mystery (2 years ago)
maybe mark laidlaw left because valve wasnt producing his hard work
Random Den (2 years ago)
what difference does it make? no half life 3 when he was at valve and still no half life 3 after.

Oh no... Oh no...
Matthewvader (2 years ago)
One more thing. If it's true that Marc wrote the whole story for HL1, and part of his hl2 were cut, sorry but like my friend Justin told me: If the writer is not involved with the work, the one that wrote the first story I don't trust the other half. That's how we think.
Virck (2 years ago)
Half life 3.....buhhhh - I'll just go ahead and have a heart attack when it gets released.
if hl3 comes out and wasn't as good as you thought it would be it is your own fault for hyping yourselves, valve is trying to not talk about hl3 and you are hyping yourselves to the point that you will be disappointed regardless what the final product is like.
