    For starters why would Gabe say what's going to happen at E3?

    I am worried what might happen to the internet if Ep3 was revealed.

    You will be so excited during the livestream that you will giggle like a school girl like everyone else here. Unless you are going to go there, Simply only time will tell if Gaben is only trolling us, or if valve is unveiling Half life 3.

    This e-mail looks similar to one I've seen before, last time everyone thought it was close to EP3 reveal and there was a few fake e-mails.

    They won't be showing anything publically at E3.

    They still have their private booth, though!

    Edited:

    Which, again, is how they displayed Half-Life 2 back in like 2003(?).

    Wait, does this mean I won't be able to watch Gabe roll onto the Stage and annouce Episode 3 on the Livestream?

    I'm pretty sure that the HL-team is in the final stage of development. Why? Because they all grow beards. They did the exact same thing in the final stage of developing HL1 and HL2 IIRC..

    I'm keeping my head held high, but I could really use a hug too after all these years of disappointment.
    If they are in the final development stages for anything, it's probably DOTA2.

    He just didn't go the short-sighted route. The age will be correct on Episode 3's release.

    I totally agree, but there are also some limits to how far you should stretch it out. Moderation is key.

    Tank with hot air, cool it down whilst maintaining pressure and BAM it'll collapse into itself like that.

    Pressure hose, bottom right.
    Besides, that's far too dramatic and fast for a temperature based collapse. It would slowly curl up rather than instant total failure.

    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

    But still optimistic. He seemed very sarcastic in the e-mail(or I'm just desperate maybe). We must keep hope.

    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.

    On its Flickr page, it claims that it was taken at the Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. I think the filters on it really give it this Fallout 3-ish look that makes it look like a game.


    Here's a more "real" looking picture of the same scene.

    Especially when CSGO is not ready to release at all, and DOTA still needs some polish (champs etc.)
