and that's probably when they'll announce Episode 3. You guys need to stop freaking out.

We didn't even know a Valve game was going to be announced yesterday until it actually happened.

Even if Valve throws up a 30 second trailer, we'll know something big is coming our way

Blood... pressure.... rising.... Not only this wait, which is passing by in slow motion to me, but there was no MotionPlus Zelda at the Nintendo show. LET NOT THIS SHOW CONTINUE TO LEAVE MY PANTS UNSOILED AND WITHOUT JOY! Episode 3... I must distract myself somehow... AHH!

Actually, we have to wait another 4 1/2 months before EP2 reaches its 2 year anniversary.

I want to see EP3 news as much as anyone, but we really should calm down and stop being so impatient over a video game.

And, IMO, when Valve takes their time, they always pull through and create a ground-breaking experience... an experience we're all demanding... I wouldn't expect anything less with EP3.

Valve games are going to be good. They've set such a high standard that quality is practically guaranteed. However, the whole point of Episodic content was to have a rapid release cycle which, considering that a sequel to a full game has been announced before a third episodic installment, has not really been the case.

I don't think the mods here have a clue. They don't work for Valve so they are in the dark like us all.

Please, for the love of everything good, stop using ridiculous amounts of exclamation marks.

Less than an hour until the announcement :).

If anyone at Valve still reads these silly forums, here is my message and plea to you. I love you, but please, give us something to sink our teeth into today.

I'd be just as happy if they said we aren't getting anything at E3 2009. At least then we would know something, and wouldn't let ourselves get so worked up for what could potentially be nothing at all. I could just put Episode 3 in the back of my mind and bring it back when the time is right.

They've already stated (I'm pretty sure...) that EP3 is going to come out this year. That being said, I don't really see a reason to announce one of their main titles (L4D2) at this event then withhold their main game. Not to mention that L4D2 is coming out at a time that would be realistic release date for HL2: Ep. 3 (and hopefully Portal 2 / CS2). Seriously, I'm expecting an Orange Box 2 announcement.

YOU HEARD IT FROM ME FIRST

When I read that I remembered when Nintendo announced WiiMusic last year.
Then I pictured Gabe dancing and playing an imaginary instrument.

Man, Valve attended to E3 2009, just for Left 4 Dead 2? I think they have worst presentation, also Most disappointing presentation of 2009 :/

QFT, how can they put developers on l4d2 when we HL fans have been waiting 4ever for ep3
valve really doesn't think much of their fans and our community ...

But I mean cmon look at blizzard, they are atleast trying to communicate with the fans and I think most ppl on those forums really enjoy it . All valve could done was to say on some blog that ep3 wasn't going to be announced at e3.

Really disappointing E3 for Valve. They said they might release infomation about ep3 at the end of the year last year, they didn't so every thought it would come at E3 but it seems there spending to much timer on l4d2. sigh at valve.
