Default Valve sucks! E3 announcment is gonna be Portal 2 which is out 2011 , no HL3/Ep3 :(

from bluesnews-

Quote:
Valve announces Portal 2 is delayed, now saying that that 2011 is the Valve Time translation of the holiday 2010 release window the announcement of the first-person platform sequel mentioned. They also take this opportunity to stress that they promised a Portal 2 surprise at E3, as the internet runs amok with Half-Life rumors. Here's word:

VALVE ANNOUNCES MAKING GAMES IS HARD

June 9, 2010 -- Aperture Science, doing business as Aperture Laboratories LLC, in partnership with Valve today announced the successful completion of an ethics-review-panel-supervised release date restructuring process. Portal 2, the sequel to the ground-breaking title that earned over 30 Game of the Year awards despite missing its original ship date, is now targeted for a 2011 release.

Representatives from both companies acknowledged that public safety concerns factored into the decision. They went on to say that even though Portal 2 will arrive slightly later than planned, all life on earth won't instantaneously stop as every molecule in your body explodes at the speed of light, which is what would happen should a rip ever appear in the fabric of Valve Time.

"Also, the game will be even better," they added, missing an historic opportunity to create the first product delay press release to mention that a product is being delayed to make it worse.

To ask questions about how close we all came to dying, or to ask futile questions about the previously announced E3 ***PORTAL-2-THEMED-FOR-GOD'S SAKE*** surprise or, less futilely, to schedule an appointment to attend a Portal 2 screening at the Valve booth during E3, please contact Valve's delegate to the EU's Valve Time Studies Group, Doug Lombardi.

They don't just because you don't what you want.

yup, but I think the longer they keep from releaseing ep3, the more people keep valve on their minds. Feels like if ep3 came out we would just move along to the next thing and forget about it

Not really excited about Portal either. Make a new shooter valve if you aren't gonna make ep3.

I wish I had a dollar for every "Valve sucks/Valve is Awesome!" thread there has ever been.

I have no interest in Portal 2 either...

Portal 2 better not be over $30 unless it's twice as long as the first one. Geez.

Portal 2 interests me more than anything Half-Life related, honestly.

Thats bad. I always considered them as best "old dogs" fps creators together with ID, EPIC, RAVEN etc. Now they are either hidding something or just sucks

If Source Engine 2, and Portal 2 running on it, is the surprise, I'm a happy panda
