Ask a Valve developer anything about the Half Life series. I wont be going into too much detail about HL3, but I want to answer questions about that guy in the picture. Anyways, go ahead. Ask away.
Oh my god.

If you're honestly going to be picky about this shit, I just wont do it at all. There's enough info out already, if I spill more, my identity will be found out. I personally want to keep my job.
While you wont know exactly, a lot of his intentions will be revealed
He doesn't. If you think he does, you are not looking deep enough into the game
If you have just realized this, you have been sleeping under a rock
what a twist
Also, I'm fully able to answer questions about why someone said what, and the explanations of shit that already happened.
>He doesn't. If you think he does, you are not looking deep enough into the game
How is not saving Gordon's life right at the end of both Half-Life games not helping? Let me guess, Gordon is just a "tool" for his, the "G-Man," true intentions.
would you guys bring back original Team Fortress Classic? The comical characters are pretty stupid. Also I would seriously kill for the chance to play Action Half Life. You guys used to be pretty widely known for the accommodation of mods to the games, do you have any thoughts on that? Also do you remember a map builder named Hondo? Did you guys hire him? You should he was amazing.
three 3s in the post number
>half life 3 confirmed
Gman is using Gordon as a pawn to get whatever he wants. At the end of Episode 2, Gman became an apparent hostility. The player/Gordon while feeling protected, should not feel safe. (If you know what I mean)
1. Never in a million years, TF2 is famed for this comical feel to it. I can tell you that when we decided to go with the comical look, it was met with awesome feedback. No reason to go back.
2. Never heard of that
3. Never heard of Hondo either.
I have seen this theory. Some of it is correct, some of it isn't. Specifics are easier to answer.
That's an Advisor. They are sort of overseers of the Combine. Important roles, high in command.
While this was in some way an original intention, it quickly drifted away from that.
As a philosophy in your (Valve's) story-telling, will all the answers be revealed eventually or are you going to continue to always have unspoken behind the scenes events/intentions and scatter clues throughout the game
I'm sorry you've never heard of some of the greatest Mods people made for original Half Life. You should look into them, I think they were part of the reason people paid so much attention to the series long before 2 even came out. Action Half Life, Scientist Hunt, they were both wonderful. Go youtube that shit, and hey maybe enough time has passed that you can steal the ideas and bring them to a brainstorming session for alternate HL stuff to implement.
How often do you fantasize about Gabe? Is he in your dreams? Do you make posts like these because you want to be closer to him?
that's gr8 bait mate I rate it 8/8.
Lol, OP doesn't work for valve or he wouldn't have referred to himself as a developer.
Source: I have a valve friends and family card on my steam acct. aka I know someone who works at valve.
are you required to worship almighty gabe?
i recommend u do so if u didnt:
No, but it's all I can do to answer some questions because it amuses me.
We have scrapped various versions, so far so good, we are probably going to keep our current version. While I don't know every inch of HL3, I know quite a lot.
Clues and scattering, we haven't decided if we'll tie all the loose ends and answer all the question know. Knowing how we work however, expect that if the story ends to be left with many questions unanswered.
Seems neat, I'll look at it when I have the time.
I am thrilled by the results, I think it'll be awesome, and everyone will love it as the holy grail.
At first delaying, then scrapping bad versions, more delaying, then getting to work, scrapping again, and then working even harder.
But then there wont be a half life 4
This theory is so fucking retarded, it makes me cringe every time I see it.
>A lot of the info is linked with certain personell of Valve. Leaking it is risky as hell to me being found out. Talking about HL3 is basically the equivalent of praising satan in the westboro baptist church
first part yes
this made me laugh harder than i should have
you're doing it wrong; gr8 b8 m8 i r8 8/8
>tl;dr your bad
this is just as credible as me calling myself a developer. i play a major role in development, i do this type of thread a lot
It stands for government man. That's what Gman means if you had the nerve to look it up. We even told everyone Gman is a inter dimensional bureaucrat
why of course
its true, i guess half life 3 will never be able to top cawadoody bwack ops
your burning team captain should have just arrived
we're debating on making another, (fun fact, chell is dead)
gmod is not in anyway a current concern, it's probably one of the lowest on our project list
Sorry dude, the game was severely overrated. The dialouge was laughable, the graphics are nothing special....it was just a mediocre spin on a tired fomula and you fan boys eat it up and beg for more.
Real gamers have the impartial intelligence to ascertain the true quality of a product.
Okay op. I'll bite.
Is G-man going to appear in amy other game series (cross over style)?
Is Gordons contract ever going to be fufilled?
What about g-man and alyx? Is there much of a future to see a half life spin off centering on them?
this is now a spiderman thread
op is the biggest faggot of all
Haven't seen it, too lazy sorry. (Probably not)
I've been bound to keep this a secret, as everyone at Valve was at one of the christmas parties. I wouldn't just leak it as proof, I don't give a shit if no one believes me. I remember making a thread about the kill-streaks, a month later they were released. I bet everyone in that thread shit themselves when they realized I was legit. (I doubt anyone was here for it)
It's from Greek Mythology. Someone found it out maybe a few months after the game was released. The turrets at the end shot her. She heard music, and was sent to a field of corn (Corn meant vegetation, such as wheat in Greek culture, since it wasn't discovered yet) You would also be accompanied by your best companion (Companion Cube)
I wont answer this
1. He was originally to be mentioned in Portal 2
2. He is now a pawn for Gman, his contract was signed. Until Gman dies, or releases him, Gordon will forever solve problems for the Gman who was paid to solve them
3. Of course not
Not going to comment either. c:
We aren't sure
>not sure about new portal
Well you better get fucking sure because I can't keep playing community test chambers made by 12 year olds who think jumping over a puddle of water is a challenge
This is Gabe. You're in a lot of trouble. Prepare your ass on Monday. Expect pain.
nigger you are dodging every specific question, even ones that won't put your job in jeopardy, and just providing general common knowledge answers or completely falsified statements. Anyone that thinks this is real is retarded and OP can kill himself for pretending to be something he isn't actually trying to be.
>sage goes in all fields
This made me spit my drink. Just for you I'll briefly bring it up, but my word won't convince the entire team. I'll give you this, some ideas/concepts are being thrown around, but if there is a new one, chances are Chell wont be the protagonist.
I want this to happen, but a lot of others don't see it happening.
There's no proof I can give to verify my job. In all honesty, no one cares. Anyone will ask me anything to have the chance of me being real and getting info. I am an actual Valve employee, but I cannot prove it.
This is now a Spider-Man thread.
He wouldn't even name the guy.
Well seeing as how OP doesn't even know that the guy with the water spigot on his head from the logo is none other than the king of valve merch himself and one of the original portal team. Arsenio, and the question was a trick he has no nickname other than king of merch.
OP is a lying faggot and I will say this. They have very little done for HL3, they are working on a new engine for it because they really want to deliver something worth waiting for. That being said they have some script and most music done for it.
I'm not OP but you can rest well knowing that it is in production.
Oh, I thought you were talking about something/someone else. We had made a test model for one of the props in Magnesons station. We had put a water spigot on it's head, and named it. It spread out pretty fast, but everyone thought it was perverted, so we removed it. Any other question? Given what I just said, you're probably able to look it up.
You're a dumbass. You don't need to give direct proof you chucklefuck but you can answer more specific questions without being caught.
How about you answer why VALVe has turned into a money grubbing machine that's afraid to take risks? Why do you think HL3 has taken so long? Why are they rehashing the same shit with L4D3/CS:GO? It's because VALVe has no skill. They fired 25 people including the guy who made SFM. They're fucking retards and so are you.
>until Gman dies, or releases him.
Interesting response OP.
Based on what we've seen the vortigaunts capable of with interrupting Gmans control.. that was interesting to say.
Do you think the people who give Gman the contracts will ever make an appearence?
Seriously man, you just had to say the guys name was Arsenio and you don't know his nickname because it is very infrequently used. It's been dropped like 2 times. Once at a meeting, the other at the annual retreat.
Why didn't you refer to him as the G-Man?
And what is Aperture doing with the Borealis?
And why did you kill Eli?
And is Gnome Chompski still in space?
Do you think you can betray Gabe's trust and get away with it?
Ok second question to redeem yourself, you have two posts to get this.
How did arsenio get to be head of merch?
Everyone knows this, if you work at valve you should be able to stab at the dark and get it.
HL3 has taken so long because it's been scrapped and delayed frequently. Saying Valve doesn't take risks is completely retarded
I won't, but he will.
We killed Eli because he wasn't important, and provided a nice sacrifice to show that Gman isn't nice.
I wouldn't do that to anyone near me, I'm friends with most of my co-workers.
yea, thats totally Tarquin Smith from the Clear Skies movies by Ian Chisholm
Seriously you can answer this and not expose any part of who you are unless you're and idiot and using your work computer
