    Valve declined those on the grounds that that contributors aren't able to make money out of their own IP. So those are just lost, hopeless dreams. May they rest in peace.

    A friend of mine thinks it's "Meet the Pyro" and Valve's just really teasing us. Because, y'know, ashes.

    Take a WILD WILD guess.
    A random "French Gaming Journalist" says HL3 will be announced out of the blue in an hour, at a random time.

    Gee I wonder if hl3 will be announced in an hour Harry.

    You know, that wouldn't bug me as much as it does if we didn't have stuff like the team captain and the vita saw, and, you know, valve wasn't taking 75% of the damn money.

    Laro's a freelance game designer, and Valve contacted him with the request to create promo's. Either Valve or Sega did for Shogun 2.

    First time was the Shogun guys contacted all the Polycount contest winners asking if they'd like to design items, and only Laro said yes. Second time, he used his industry contact in Shogun to set up a deal with the Deus Ex guys. He considers himself to be extremely lucky.

    why couldn't they just accept a lesser cost or "donate" it?

    So all this wait for Meet the Pyro and a big update and suddenly Valve would be like "Hey guys we're making Half-life/Episode 3".

    Seems so odd.

    If it is anything HL related it'll probably be Half-Life 2 on Steam for Linux. That quote's only being used to rile up people who've been waiting expectantly for Half-Life 3.

    It could also be related to the pyro, because you know, burning things.

    It's actually a good ploy. People are know speculating if it's mtp or Half life related.

    Me too.

    The later new HL is released the more time I have to actually finish the episodes.
    If you can't finish 12 hours of gameplay in 6 years, I doubt a few more will help.

    A lot of people want to believe, since both camps have been pretty starved, Half-Life fans have been waiting over a decade for anything relating to Half-Life 3, and TF2 fans haven't had any major updates at all this year. It's not really hard to see why people are getting worked up.

    well, his specifics were a bit more lewd
    "Valvefags are going to fap"
    "Tomorrow is May Day. I'm not going to work. I'll work from home. Starting Midnight."
    "If there's news about HL3, I'm gonna have New Delhi-sized boner."
