it's like the black monolith thingy; so cryptic
notice the face watermark?
What's the source of the pic?
..I dont know
I'll post when I find out
nevermind I should read first
STERN YOU FIND OUT THE ****ING SOURCE BEFORE YOU **** WITH US OKAY
I found this news item:
it doesnt confirm or deny the thing is real or a hoax ..so I guess it's kinda of useless. really unless it's confirmed by valve it could be anything
you know, it's not going to be ep3. so why bother? not to mention how dumb the image is: a lambda logo, freeman text (because we don't know why lambda is there)...why not a picture of a crowbar?
Dare I believe!?
it looks like it's a scan. you can see that it's off centre. it could be a press release
I thought E3 was from the fifteenth until the seventeenth?
Am I the only one seeing Gman's face on the image? That creep me out a little...
Freeman is a HL prequel. You have to destroy the lab at MIT
I see a face too, I'll reverse values
You're right, you know. I didn't notice that until I looked for it.
Matorbogl, E3 is on those dates. This is a pre-E3 "surprise" press event which Valve are staging. Pre and post E3 events aren't uncommon.
HOLY SHIT GUYS LOOK WHAT I FOUND. IT'S A NEW EP3 SCREENSHOT!!!
Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content)
He's called the GMan.
OR GHOST MAN!?
Holy **** dare it be true!!! :O
Yes but there is usually quite a few conferences before E3 i.e. MS conference is 14th, natal conference is 13th, valves cancelled conference was 14th
Notice there is no year shown...
does it need to have one june 14th implies this year especially considering that lies on the same day as valves conference. I'm not saying this isnt fake but not having the year on it doesnt not make it so
I love you man, just not in the gay way
I was just joking (mostly).
Unfortunately its simplicity gives me the impression that a fan could have thrown it together in 5 minutes after the cancellation press release. But also, simplicity is a style of art these days that big companies promote by, and it also has some Valve style throw in.
Looks like it's proven to be fake according to steam forum.
of course it's fake. it's five seconds shit.
This real or fake people? Eep the tension is killing me.
that one is real, but gabe could be simply lying. you never know.
knew it was fake due to lack of full logo
do he used a program that checked if it was photoshop?
Well I mean, couldn't whoever at Valve that made it have been using photoshop? It could have started from a photograph, too, as a base. Why not? It's not like everything that comes from Valve is some kind of magic instance materialized out of nowhere by Gabe's magic wand.
It probably is fake though, but I don't see how that exif data really proves it.
Thanks smash for that link...I'll put that on copy and paste it to the 30 people who keep linking me it.
It's too obvious of a ploy to bring something out like this while Valve are building up to the "Portal 2 E3 Surprise".
that's a nice tool, and it seems more useful than a hex editor. I also like how photoshop leaves so much metadata left behind.
I don't get that exif data shit. I mean what exactly does it prove? That I saved an image in photoshop?
Rats! And here I was getting exited.
Looks like Game Informer is running with this story. If this isn't fate and it really is the next Half-Life installment, I will literally S**** myself to space. And I have a feeling many of you here will, too.
It's not ep3. IT'S HL3!!!!!!
Except it says rumor at the top.
Ep3 != Half-Life 3
Gabe, you crafty bastard.
If this really is Half Life 3, then Valve will have the biggest hype about any game in video-gaming history on their hands.
Please let it be HL3.
And it's not Icefrog's title:http://www.playdota.com/forums/242334-page3/valve-announcing-surprise-e3-coult/#post1209655
IT'S A PORTAL 2 SURPRISE. Way to set yourself up for major SADFACE!
