You keep bringing up strawman arguments that have no bearing on what I said. Just because other makers/developers/whatever do it doesn't mean Valve should be allowed to without taking heat. With the praise that gets heaped on them you would think they'd be perfect, but they are not. You have yet to show how anything I've said is untrue. Also, if you're taking that long to beat the HL2 episodes then you are ridiculously slow, so you can't use that as a point either. It takes a couple hours tops.

Thank you for that.
I didn't say they were perfect. L4D2 and Ricochet are examples of where Valve didn't do too well on, (even Gabe made the comment on how terrible Ricochet was) not to mention the whole HL2 leak, leaking unreleased content and the whole Source code. One of the reasons why Steam was created in the first place. With the way I was understanding you, it made it sound like Valve is the bad guy for all of gaming, hence why I threw Activison in there, cause they're the best example. And those times were just the general time, I didn't say it takes me that long. And if I do, so what? I actually enjoy my games and take my time with them. I don't rush them and try to beat them as fast as I can. Doing that, you miss the little things, like the Lambda caches in HL2 and EP1 and the antlion nest caches in EP2.
Anyways, EP3, or as it's actually going to be called, Half-Life 3 is being worked on. I don't know if you guys think the little hints (t-shirts, Gabe's computer screen in his knife pic, a majority of Valve's devs have nothing lined up) are enough proof that HL3 is being worked on. It may not be as public as many people think they should be, but all I know is that it's being worked on, just "it's done when it's done" as someone said.
