HDR was introduced with Source, and incorporated into HL2. I guess I'm saying that HL2 sold the source engine and made it successful, not the other way around. If Valve just introduces Source 2 with no ground-breaking and highly anticipated title to go alone with it... the announcement wont be nearly as big.
Mark my words, a good engine can make or break a game. Doom 3 engine broke ET: Quake Wars IMO. Source Engine made HL2 and L4D series IMO.

Well originally when you said "I'd be content, but not over joyed." you were quoting me saying "If Source Engine 2, and Portal 2 running on it"..


Regarding HL3 I wouldn't say never.. Personally I kind of think (granted I also hope) that Half-Life 3 will come at some point, I just think that Valve is saying that they'd like to make other things for now.. Develop Portal perhaps L4D franchise, or more likely create new stuff.. then who knows if they feel like making a kickass HL3 in 8-10 years time
