Has everyone given up on half life 3 or portal 3 or for that matter any future valve games (THAT AREN'T CARD GAMES :mozgus:) I guess im still looking forward to half life 3 but hope seems to be going away as I increasingly worry on Lord Gaben's counting abilities.
Half life 3 is like.... Everyone wants it, but everyone knows not to expect it. To me it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when in the next 20 years will it happen. So if you wantto consider me as someone who's given up on it, that's cool.

This contemporary conversation expressing concern over the possible release of Half-Life 3 is reminding me of the dead football players from Beetlejuice, "Coach, I'm beginning to think we didn't survive the crash..."

You must have missed when the former lead writer for the Half Life series effectively leaked HL2: Episode 3's script, and Valve did nothing to stop it. That shit is dead, man.

Uhhh.... So.... How does that script relate to episode 2 because i thought alex was a girl, and what about morgan? i guess its basically written like a parallel? or am i just not understanding?

Names were changed so as not to directly incite a legal battle with his former employer. Hence "epistle 3" instead of "episode 3."

Since nobody mentioned it yet, right now I'm personally looking forward to Total War: Three Kingdoms. I'm not really a good player despite owning a few Total War games, but I enjoy them, and the historical context of this one really appeals to me.
And currently on my "wait to see more list" there is Cyberpunk 2077, Mortal Kombat 11, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Total war looks pretty cool I might get  Rome total war. However I heard that the latest total war games weren't so good at least compared to the previous ones.

I'm not skilled and experienced enough to actually confirm it or not, but I bought the last one (Thrones of Brittania if i'm correct) and enjoyed it despite mixed reactions when it came out. Each title brings new and different functions, so some of them are less welcomed than others by long-time fans. Each opus has its own identity so it really depends on what you're looking for. But it seems that Rome II is indeed a safe bet and there is a lot of content. I didn't try all of them, but my personal favorite for now would be Shogun 2.
A bit of patience is required because it's not easy to understand how to play at first, but if you think you might like a Total War game I recommend it. Plus, they are regularly on sale on Steam.
