Quote:
Erik Wolpaw’s official time as an official Valve employee included writing for Half-Life 2’s Episodes, Left 4 Dead, and Portal. Now he’s officially not a Valve employee, he’s dipping in and out, working on various projects with folks including fellow funnyman Jay Pinkerton (who also left, then actually returned) and Sean Vanaman of Campo Santo (who are now part of Valve) and In The Valley Of Gods. Doing stuff. Words, probably.

“I’ve had a contractor agreement with Valve since the day I left,” Wolpaw explained to me today. “I’ve been helping Pinkerton and [Steve] Jaros and Vanaman whenever they need it. It’s been more busy on that front lately, but I’m not a full time employee.”

This, but not with the usual Portal gameplay, or if possible a new Half-Life, because...

Ahem...

You see...
*douses flame retardant spray*
I think...
*spreads firefighting foam*
In my opinion...
*lifts dry powder fire extinguisher pin*

Portal is kinda overrated.

Kudos for a very true post, here. We sometimes forget how *the intend* of bad DLCs, or other crap development is badly impacting the main game content/story.

One of the most damning example was, to me, Mass Effect 3. Every single plot (illusive man, reapers's origins, how the **** were they able to reach the galaxy, while ME1 was adamant they couldn't do it by themselves, and so many others ...) was left crack open to give ways for DLCs. I think the first one was a vague hint on the reapers' origin, nothing more, before the plug was pulled due to fans boycott ...

I laughed at this until I realized this is a possibility with the current state of the gaming industry.
It's great to hear he's back but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Wouldnt surprise me at all for a Half Life to come out with a story that Gordon Freeman was captured by the Combine and pitched into an arena with dozens of other citizens where they must fight to survive

Massive Multiplayer Online Battle Royale Arena for Chinese mobile market in Augmented Reality. But if you want a crowbar you gotta buy a special controller and swing it around in public while playing the game. Citizen tracking included.
