    I was reading the article a couple of days ago and really it's up to Valve to release any info as of yet. I am wondering though on how they will manage to connect the story between Portal and Half Life together ( since they seem to share a pattern together between their stories)

    Surprise, it will soon be 8 years since the last release!

    Perhaps they are going for a 'release per decade' schedule.

    Well it's not like they aren't doing anything - the core team build TF2 and Dota 2 + the episodes and stuff like that alien game in the meantime.

    The game is not overrated. When it came out, there was absolutely nothing that came close. Did you play it well after its release? Because if you haven't noticed, nearly every game made since then has copied it in some way.

    It's really over rated, it's alright, but really not that great. Portal is way better.

    This needs to be a fully commited AAA release not some tin pot episodic DLC garbage with 1 - 2 hrs gameplay!!

    I never bought into the DNF scam, little to no info, no idea of release date, no idea of who was going to develop it next, tell tale hype and BS and that was supposed to be the AAA title of all time!! So if HL3 is ever going to see the light of day they'd better give a concrete development announcement, credible updates and not vague references, Hilbert to be flown out regularly by Valve just to make sure they are actually developing a HL3 title and nVidia to bundle it with their 7xx series of cards!!

    Christ, not too much to ask is it?

    Once again, it's dumb to say the game was overrated. It was revolutionary at the time it came out. Portal is not a legitimate comparison as it came out almost four years later.

    You're allowed to dislike it, but it simply was not overrated.

    To my understanding, the original interview was actually about a different game entirely and not the interviewer nor Gabe actually mention HL 3 but he was talking about a different game based from some mod or something... its just suggested that this is the same reason for HL3 and the experiemtn with hl3 concept is taken out of context. hl3 was not worded by gabe. which it might be the same reasons, but we'll never truely know. But this forced suggestion i found rather poor taste.

    Read "Ricochet 2" as "Half Life 3" and it makes more sense.

    i know, but since HL3 was'nt exactly mentioned. then you can't just say it as if Gabe did. I'm sure HL3 has the same reasoning, but they were still referenceing a different game.

    They weren't referencing a different game...There never was and never will be a Ricochet 2. The only reason Gabe referred to it as that is because that's what the interviewer chose to call it. It's just a code name.
