He looks like my middle school teacher in that picture.
He got fired for hitting a couple of kids. Wonder what he is doing now...

The Valve boss said that part of the reason the dev's backed off talking about its future titles is because it's "trying to be careful not to get people too excited and then have to go and disappoint them," as it did with multiple Half-Life 2 delays.

In other words, it's the whiny, self-important, self-entitled internet bitching that's lead to a complete media black-out. You've only got yourselves to blame people :P

Another great article from CVG.

"Developer speaks about why they aren't speaking about anything. No new information gained".

To be fair, it's a quote from Gabe Newell that possibly refers to Half-life 3 in some way. That's way more than anything else Half-life fans have had for about two years. Just acknowledging the fan demand for information is a bit of reassurance, even if it was just a long winded way of saying "trust us".

Wow, if Half Life 3 has been baking for this long I'm pretty sure it's burnt by now...

I don't see that much Santa in him. To me he looks like that guy from south park that eats all the cakes and sandwiches, and tries to shut down Tobacco industries lol.


Apart from that it pretty much confirms HL3 in the production.
