• Halflife2.net Updates from Valve's Presentation at E3

    Discussion in 'News' started by Hectic Glenn, Jun 2, 2009.

    We are nearing the time till Valve's presentation begins (2pm PST, 10pm GMT) and our colleague Smash is on location at the Los Angeles Conference Centre, reporting back his findings. You can follow him through twitter right here - http://twitpic.com/6h3rt


    Update 1: So far since arriving, smash has wandered into the 360 demo booth and found a playable Left 4 Dead 2 demo. Picture here.
    Update 2: L4D2 playtest in valves room. not an expansion. pc and 360 nov 17. screen shots later at hl2.net. no ep3 at e3.
    Disappointing news, no episode 3 at E3. So Episode 3 really is an ambitious project, there is still nothing to show for it!? I am surprised.

    Why would you want to see EP2 again? :p
    I know, he's supposed to say Ep3!
  6. Chris_D
    See attached.

    Inside knowledge or wishful thinking?

    Or have I missed something and it definitely is Ep3 that's being seen? :eek:

    Can't wait.

    Oh god ten minutes. Of coures I'll be stuck in my damn car from 2:00 - 2:45 driving home. I'm going to miss the epic announcement as it happens :(
  9. Chris_D
    Is Smash going to film it?
  10. MacBowes
    I heard that he's going to streak through if they don't announce EP3.
  11. Chris_D
    Oooh, is someone filming that?
  12. Warped
    I would too if they didn't announce it!

    Here we go...

    Yay, forums are back up! All hail to Munro.

    Btw this reminds me of Spitcodfry's trip to Valve in 2003. Exciting!
  15. Diesel_Power
    Thank you! The site was down and I began to have panic attacks!
  16. Hrunting
    The conference was supposed to start 45 minutes ago. Why aren't there any more updates?
  17. kupocake
    Gabe released the Hounds.
  18. Hectic Glenn
    No episode 3, unfortunately guys. This is disappointing news indeed :(
  19. MacBowes
    Curious of that myself :(.
  20. Insano
    I'm really disappointed... :(
  21. Captain M4d
    What is Valve thinking?
  22. DigiQ8
    But...I want my Episode Three trailer :(
  23. Shakermaker
    Meh, too bad.

    Powerful words and they sound good.
  24. Kadayi
    The update is:-

    There are no updates :|

    Why even hold a press conference given L4D2 was announced the day before? They might as well just have had a L4D2 booth and not bothered raising peoples expectations of something more by having a sit down.

  25. Wanted Bob
    Aww man...


    Thats too bad...
  26. Lucid
    Are you ****ing kidding me? :|
  27. Ennui
    God damn it Valve, Ep3 > L4D2!
  28. Barnz
    I think Lombardi revealed a possibly release date on GameSpot's interview (few minutes ago). He said: (on L4D 2's release date) it's 17th November, which is close to 11th anniversary of Half-Life.

    I smell a new package coming.
  29. Hectic Glenn
    Indeed, this is ANTI-NEWS :(
  30. Diesel_Power
    Wait! What?

    Okay, so no Episode 3. Surely they must have something else!
  31. joule
    How.. anticlimactic..

    Not even a word on Portal 2. :/
  32. PimpinPenguin
    This has got to be one of Valve's biggest cock ups. First they announce L4D2 which didn't impress many fans and they let it take the limelight for yet another year. If Valve can make 2 L4D games then they should have something to show on EP3. Looking at the other forums it seems like not a single person is interested in the L4D news they just want something no matter how small on EP3.
    I was foolish enough to listen to my heart that there would be EP3 news, very very disappointed.
  33. kineaesth
    Valve :(
  34. Sledgehammer
    I am certainly interested in L4D news, I'm just more interested in Episode Three news.
  35. RioBravoXL
    Something's not right. Valve is too crafty.
  36. Barnz
    I like how everyone ignored my previous post. Lombardi spilled the beans.
  37. PimpinPenguin
    He also said it would be on the first anniversary of Left4Dead.
  38. LazyMofo
    I am absolutely let down. Why invite hl2.net? There was NOTHING to announce. Microsoft stole the thunder with L4D2, which was mediocre at best, and then Valve held a press conference for... WHAT?!?!

    We Half-Life fans have been waiting for 2 years for SOMETHING... and with the exception of a single piece of vague concept art, we have gotten NOTHING. Absolutely nothing.

    I'm let down. Pissed off. Frustrated. And I don't even want to think about Half-Life.
  39. Wanted Bob
    I dunno if I would call that spilling the beans... its a longshot...
