    We've got a Gordan Freeman crowbar... If only I had somewhere gritty and urban to take a picture.

    I am hopefully going to be visiting a fairly rural, yet long abandoned and creepy house shortly. if I can get a hold of a Freeman-bar, I will endeavour to take a photo.

    This sounds like an excellent competition, actually. Get everyone to take a photo with a crowbar that makes for the most epic, fake HL2: EP3 screenie, no editing. :D

    Wear a motorbike glove for added authenticity.

    Valve really did lose their charm when they decided Ep3 could go suck one and poured all their time into DLC for the Warcraft-esque grindfest that is TF2. They didn't even produce much in the time it would've taken them to make Ep3 - a few hats, a bow & arrow and some weapon balancing. That's not much of a yield.

    Wut? You seriously think that's all they've been doing with their time? It would probably only take a small team a few days to do that stuff (which isn't DLC BTW, they're just updates. I hate this new "DLC" catchphrase that seems to have almost completely replaced the work "patch", and which most developers think they can now charge for).

    Meanwhile, the rest of the Valve workforce have been busy working on L4D, L4D2, Alien Swarm, the CS:S update, Portal 2, and probably large portions of Ep3 which just hasn't been announced yet. I'm pretty sure they didn't just decide Ep3 could "go suck one", unless of course you know more about Valve's internal operations than the rest of us.

    What's with the attitude? I just have a limited perspective on their company's activities because they haven't made a statement about dev progress in about a million years and TF2 updates are the only observable fruit of their labour at the moment. No need to get personal (unless you work for Valve, in which case I guess you and I do have some things to discuss :))

    Episode 3 has been relegated; that much is not in doubt, because it's now taken as much time to develop as many full titles do. There's nothing wrong with a huge development time, but when you have a massive community of fans with a vested interest in your work, it's good manners (and good business sense) to tell them that things are still happening internally every now and then.

    I do indeed. Always preferred Escape From City 17 as vision of a new Half Life, though (click through for 720p goodness);
