[D] Newell opens up on 'Half-Life 3' dev issues - Page 6

post #51 of 72
I wouldn't start calling it vapor-ware for at least 5 more years...but that's just me. Valve has always delivered in my opinion. I'm not really worried or feel like I'm owed anything. HL2 was great and I enjoyed it. If a sequel never makes it out then I'll manage.
Work in progress.

I have a right to my opins and to do as I want, as do you. But please calm down and check your immaturity at the door. Theres no need to freak out at me because we have different views, and def no reason to start a flame war with other game fans because your in a bad mood. Calling people dumb and childish is usually what a dumb and childish person does to be honest. As a consumer I'm peeved, and thats my right. As a consumer the only thing I can do is not buy the game, if thats what I decide to do. Doesn't hurt you, just like it doesn't hurt me if I decide to NOT play and you decide to play it. Or should I simply say your a fanboy and a tool for buying anything valve puts out? I don't feel that way to be clear, just illustrating a point.
So please, before you embarrass yourself further and go off the deep end, take a deep breath, relax. Not everyone has the same view as yourself, and that makes the world an interesting place does it not? Would be boring if everyone had the same feeling/view/opinion.
Back OT. Will hopefully be a great game, but like I said, I'm losing faith.

You're dumb and childish. Waaahh give me what I want or.. or... I won't buy it... and tell all my friends that gordon is a poo poo face.

Firstly, your threat is childish, and second, there's no way you're gonna follow thru with it (dumb), you'll be pre-loading like the rest of us.

Vaporware is Intel hyping up Larabee as a software programmable GPU with no fixed hardware functions for years. Then the product never made it past prototyping.

How long did it take blizzard to release screenshots or advertise D3?

I don't remember seeing anything till about a year and half ago. That's about 10-ish years. It was vaporware for all that time!

I agree with larrabee though, although that was pretty much predicted to go no where.

I dont understand why they dont make it. We all know its going to be a huge hit. Is it that now Gaming is more into MP then SP shooters and HL3 might fail? Are they waiting for a all new engine to blow everything alway like HL2? Are they too busy with Steam? At least we all know SC2 was going to come out, D3 and also Warcraft IV. To me i think Valve has lost it with games and only managing the Online Store. Games like Dota 2, CS:GO are nothing but updated versions of the older games.

It's foolish to compare DNF to Half Life EP3. 3D Realms hyped the game for many years on and off to the point they couldn't finish it due to lack of funding and at the end they closed their doors. Valve isn't hyping anything up and they are still developing games and updating them. They are still running strong, Steam is still the no.1 Digital Distributor and Gabe is still sleeping with a full stomach and he's a Billionaire.

i like the part where you made an assumption. there are those of us who say things like "if this product does/doesnt do this, i wont buy it" and then actually do that. i know its a tough concept to follow sometimes wink.gif

i think they have a few years before people can get really concerned

I'd give Half-Life 3 until the end of 2014 before I give "the signal" that it's been shelved. This will never, ever go into a development nightmare as Duke Nukem Forever did. Valve will take the Half-Life series to the grave before they hand it off to someone else. It's only 4 months into 2012 and only been 4 years since the last entry to the HL series. We have plenty of time before my 2014 deadline hits. I still think that a 2013 release will be perfect, which is what I'm expecting.

We have E3 coming up in June with Valve basically saying that a game with a 3 will be revealed. I'd keep an eye on the Sony or Microsoft press conferences as that's when they'll release info. We all hope to god that it won't be L4D3 as that'll be a bigger outcry than the L4D2 release a year after the original L4D. I have my faith in Valve and that something promising will be shown.

I think the whole statement made by them saying that they will no longer do a standalone single-player game has given a quite a few people lost faith in the HL series as single-player is the strongest in that series. I think we'll see a co-op, maybe not as an Alyx-Gordon couple, but maybe a Barney-Gordon combo. We've already played as Barney in Blue Shift and they can still have him throw lines out, but they will have to come up with something. Also we have a couple more possibilities as there are Colette Green, Gina Cross (from Decay) and Adrian Shephard who still have not appeared yet in the HL2 timeline. Shephard, at least we can understand if G-man has something planned for him, but Colette and Gina are still missing as they didn't have a "G-Man influence" like Gordon and Shephard. I can actually visualize a 4-player co-op with Gordon, Barney, Colette, and Gina with Alyx still an NPC.

I'm sorry I don't agree with you. But I'm also very sorry for those who have to deal with you IRL. I am allowed to have my opinions, and I'm allowed to buy what I want. Who am I threatening?

Firstly, look at your post and mine, whos the one acting childish? And second, I have never bought a single game EVER pre-order. Not sure what a pre-load is or how you buy it. Also, Even if its a game I'm dying to play and have been following for years, I never buy a game at or near launch... I don't have much money to put towards computers and games, so I wait for sales and for the game to be out a while and get a price drop.

Not sure why some people can't fathom that others have differing opinions. Any1 else is free to buy the game when they want if it gets released, and good for them. But me personally, I think its simply waiting too long. Rushing a game thats crap is one thing... but taking 10 years seems a little too long. In fact, I feel like I'm even growing out of my love for HL altogether, simply because after you play the previous games so many times over, it gets a little dull.

Maybe I'll change my mind, who knows. But I will admit one thing, the part about telling friends to stay away from it was the only part I got unreasonable and I admit that. Your entire post is unreasonable though.

Have a good day, and stay in school!
