Valve have been trolling you about Half-Life 3Valve have been trolling you about Half-Life 3

Because the dummies won't shut up about HL3. I LOVED HL1, 2 and the episodes... but it's over. Move on, people.

At this rate, HL3 is just a meme dumb kids say who likely have never ever even played any of the Half-Life games. It's just something to say so people can say back "I GET THAT REFERENCE!" That's all HL3 is.

GabeN's recent revelations about Valve's full support of VR hardware and software is far more important and significant than if they formally announced HL3 which, regardless of how good it'd be, it'd still just be a flat game.

"full VR experience" better not mean couch/gamepad, Capcom. That's not true VR.

They should just go the opposite direction and make RE8 a pulse-pounding modern military FPS where you play as a space marine hired by the Umbrella Corps to go to the zombie homeworld and take the fight to THEM. Big action set-pieces, scripted events; have a chesty, sassy female character(make her black to hit that diversity quota) lead you through each level until you reach a massive end boss. And one-liners. PLENTY of one-liners. Throw some wall-running in there and a level where you're in a mech-turret and you'd sell 3 million copies in ONE DAY.

This is what the kids want. Make it happen, Capcom.

I'm pretty sure he built his career by not giving a shit and making the content he wants to make, regardless of what people think.


Not everything needs to be Disney-fied to be a legitimate form of entertainment.


I tried to watch one of the guy's videos and couldn't watch more than 15 seconds of it, but clearly he has a loyal audience and those people aren't necessarily the Disney crowd.

Of course not everything needs to be Disney-fied. But the fact remains he had gotten big enough to be purchased by Disney - same as they purchased those other 'minor' cultural points of interest like Star Wars and Marvel Comics. Heck they even own 80% of ESPN.


To dismiss Disney's industry clout based on online followers is just foolish.

I can't stand the guy, but when you have over 50 million people as your audience, you get to make the big choices.

If that was actually the case he wouldn't have gotten fired today.

Stay out of politics, guys.Reply

We'll report on whatever we like as it pertains to PC gaming. If you don't enjoy stories related to "politics", we provide dozens a day that don't mention parties / people involved in government, though it's rather difficult to detach anything from the entire nature of the way the world is run, particularly when so many games companies are multi-national corporations with everything that involves.
