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.

Well Bandai-Namco is a well-known publisher, but their Singapore development team is basically unproven. They've put out two games (and the last was Mario Sports or some shit). My heart tells me to keep expectations low. It feels to me like Nintendo farmed this one out.

The prophet has spoken! Metroid Prime 4 is being scrapped and restarted under Retro Studios: "the current development progress has not reached the standard we seek in a sequel to the Metroid Prime series".

Saw the video on Reddit earlier. Disappointed that itís going to be a longer wait for the game, but I respect and appreciate Nintendo for putting quality above just shoving crap games out onto store shelves. Glad to see Retro will be on the project now, too.

Same, but more as a signal that Nintendo cares about the quality of the project, and is willing to flip the script when needed. But moving it over to Retro alone doesn't guarantee quality. The core members of the Retro team that developed the Prime games are long gone at this point.

I mean you've seen the demo right? There's no way it could have come out this year and kept its promises. In fact I feel like it'd be difficult for it to come out next year and keep them.

Hey, if you need that sci-fi RPG itch scratched, there's always The Outer Worlds. That has a very good chance of coming out this year.

It pales next to Link's Awakening, but the sequel to Hollow Knight looks neat.

Nice been waiting for a new Zelda remake or not, but I gotta say the look of the game is kinda weird.

I have several problems with the trailer they showed and only hope they will fix them in the final product. More than anything i just hope they make the music as good as the 8bit music from the original game. I could go into more detail but you guys don't want that lol

Edit: it's not 8 bit. i know that, i just didn't know what bit it was lol

A new action RPG in the style of "I Am Setsuna" and "Lost Sphear". I like the music and ambiance, also the premise of the story could incorporate some interesting gameplay mechanics along with it.
