    Valve's E3 Surprise

    It all started with this:

    Subject: A note from Aperture Science

    Dear Subject Name Here,

    Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Valve to announce the gala CANCELLATION of the June 14 Portal 2 event at the Regal Theater. The event will be replaced by a surprise. And even though the cancellation of the event certainly counts as a surprise, we are pleased to further announce that the cancellation of the event is not THE surprise. However, per International treaties regarding the definition of the word "surprise", of which both Aperture Science and Valve are signatories, the time, date and content of the actual surprise will only become available as you experience the surprise.

    If you'd like to ask fruitless questions about the E3 Portal 2 surprise or, more fruitfully, schedule an appointment to attend a Portal 2 screening at the Valve booth during E3, please contact Valve's Special Envoy to Surprises, Doug Lombardi.

    Thank you for <<RECORD SCRATCH!!!>>

    PS: The surprising record scratch is also not the surprise.
    So what could it be? CSS2, HL3...or a completely new IP? Obviously everyone's hoping for EP3.

    But what proof do we have of it being EP3? Just check out this pic from the TF2 blog:



    But wait, what's this?



    And there's more! You can see a faint outline of Gordon's face.



    Either way, I guess we'll find out on June 14th .

    My bet is that it's going to be Half Life 3. They've had enough bloody time.

    It's about fucking time...

    Maybe valve are just sad to see the last of Half Life? (Going off of an old announcement that there wouldn't be ep4, or a HL3.)

    The announcement is going to be L4D3, just to piss off all the half life fans again.

    Doesnt look like episode 3

    Valve staffers are known to occasionally respond to fan emails, and that's exactly what Newell did. In response to an email imploring Valve to unveil Episode 3 next week, Newell simply wrote back, "It isn't ep 3."

    I agree with Phant (or at least I want to ). He's just milking it for all it's worth.

    I predict that what they eventually release will not be on the source engine as it's pretty old now. They needed to start from scratch, which is why it's HL3.
