Don't want to burst anyone's bubbles, look at his age.
MAN'S A FRAUDDDDDDDDDDDDD.
Now I won't have to watch E3 at all! Im happy im not gonna waste my time atleast!
You know, im not even looking forward to it anymore. When I finally do hear about it being released, I will not even care.
I highly doubt that.
They won't be showing anything publically at E3.
They still have their private booth, though!
Which, again, is how they displayed Half-Life 2 back in like 2003(?).
Not revealing anything new, don't we know HL3 is coming? If we already kinda know it's coming, is it really new?
I just saw this photo taken by my favorite photographer, it reminds me a lot of half life. Can you imagine if HL3 looks like this?
Bloom everywhere, rite?

Tank with hot air, cool it down whilst maintaining pressure and BAM it'll collapse into itself like that.
Or you know, what mac said.
Perhaps I'm being overly optimistic, or just delusional, but I call "fake!" on those e-mails. Firstly, IceFrog said last year that "E3 isn't really the right type of venue for [Dota 2]", which is why Valve had no presence at E3 2011 -- the game sure hasn't drastically changed, so I assume the comment still applies. Secondly, Valve has booked a private meeting room; why deny general attendees if the intended feature items are two games that have been in public beta for months and a revamped Steam UI that itself was announced well over a year ago? As far as I'm concerned, the question isn't "Will Valve announce anything?", but rather "What will Valve announce?"
Actually, speaking of Big Picture Mode, I'm starting to think it'll outdo Half-Life 2 as the Valve project with the longest temporal gap between announcement and release. :p
I think it would be kinda silly from a marketing perspective to come out with the release date now that people are starting to fill their wallets for DOTA2 and eventually CS:GO. If they announce Episode 3 now I bet a good chunk of fans would sit out on DOTA and CS, which would hurt them immensely as multiplayer titles.
True fan will buy everything from valve anyway. Casual player will still buy what he wants. I see no problem releasing 3 completely different (multiplayer competitive FPS, MOBA game and singleplayer story-heavy FPS) games at once.
I'd call that a blind Valve fanboy.
If a game is good, by all means buy it. If you trust Valve to make a great game and everything you hear about it sounds promising, by all means buy it. But don't think that Valve is infallible. Just ask the L4D community about why their game is dying out or how they feel about L4D maps being copied to L4D2, or how well Cold Stream was received on release.
