Valve has come a long way since the days of Half-Life, which was revolutionary to gamers of a certain age when it was released in the late 90s. These days, Valve has its hands in many cookie jars including the Steam Store and Index VR headset. Gabe Newell was on hand at the Index launch event to taunt Half-Life fans about Half-Life 3, yet again. Newell was addressing the people gathered for the launch event and spent some time talking about what a breakthrough the Valve Index headset is. During the talk, Newell started in about how one thing leads to another. He said Half-Life led to Half-Life 2, Source led to Source 2, TeamFortress 2 led to Dota, and Artifact is why they were able to do Underlords.... Read more...
It’s not very often that we get lengthy commentary from Gabe Newell, Valve’s reclusive CEO, but things definitely took a turn for the better yesterday when he took place in a reddit AMA session. As expected, Newell took questions on a number of topics near and dear to the hearts of gamers, including the mythical Half-Life 3 which may or may not ever see the light of day. Thankfully, things progressed much better than his last AMA session in 2015. Rather than force you to peruse through the entire AMA discussion thread to find salient comments made by Newell, we’ve compiled a thorough list here for you that hits most (if not all) of the high points during the sitdown.

Go scream it from a rooftop, Half-Life 3 is coming! Once you've done that, climb down from your roof (carefully) and stop acting like a crazy person.

The thing that's sparking all the Half-Life 3 hysteria on the web is a list of packages on Steam, one of which contains a reference to "Half Life 3" (without the hyphen). There's a website called Steam Database (SteamDB) that keeps track of these things, and it's been successful in the past in predicting unreleased titles. At the the same time, it notes that a reference to... Read more...
When Valve announced that it was holding a news conference on March 3 at 3PM, it was quite apparent what was rolling around in the our brains: Half-Life 3. The mythical Half-Life 3 has reached almost legendary status among gamers, and leave it to Valve to tease us once again as we grab for a cold beer from the fridge to rest against our forehead. But while there was no Half-Life 3 announcement made today, Valve did have plenty to share with us including the successor to the Source engine. The Source engine has been the driving force behind Half-Life 2 and Counterstrike: Source, but Source 2 will soon upstage it. And just to make things even more interesting, Source 2 will be free to adopt for... Read more...
Does the squeaky wheel get the grease or does the nail that stands up get hammered down? While scholars and fans of idioms debate which is the more likely outcome, a pair of interns at the New Mexico-based ad agency McKee Wallwork & Co. are going all-in with the former in an attempt to harass urge Valve into making Half Life 3. The ambitious ad execs started up a a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise money for a series of tactics designed to get Valve's attention and drive home the point that gamers want -- nay, demand! -- that it finally develop and publish Half Life 3. How exactly will it do that? Well, it depends on how much money is raised. Should the team come up with $3,000,... Read more...
