    The ending was straight up insulting and so was the story. 13 years of wait for this? The plot and ending is plain , uninteresting , bad and Alyx is a sadistic asshole in it. The Epistle 3 was horrible and it was not worth the wait at all.

    The only thing that Marc's post revealed is that Gaben is a money milker and that his company is just a front for his money milking business.

    I mean, no one in their right mind would give two fucks about a game that's about cards, but that's what we'll get instead of an actual game, such as, say, a third Half-Life, and all of that because of Valve going downhill.

    Also, let's mention how it all started and not forget the fact that they already showed signs of selling out, such as when they decided to ruin TF2 by adding fucking GUN SKINS and a COMPETITIVE MODE into it (as if it's fucking CS:GO or something).

    So yeah, long story short, the company is really on par with EA and Ubisoft now.

    GG Gaben.

    As epistle 3's script i don't think it's will be end of game because There will be still so many questions again. Like:

    • What will happen to combines aliens?
    • Who the hell gman why we still don't know him?, Why he take alyx with him and leave us?
    • What Gordon will do after surviving
    • What happened to Barney? we still don't know.

    And more questions...

    Also the end doesn't fit the Half Life Series in my opinion anyway it's really perfect.

    I've read the corrected version. And well, I can say that I got surprised at the end because Gordon Freeman was the one telling the story from his own experience.

    Overall, it was a sad ending, that left me with more questions than answers. I wonder what will happen to the characters...

    I'm pretty sure thats a rough draft of the ending. There's a lot of that would affect the ending as story elements were put together.

    We all know valve isn't going to finish Half Life so long as they rake in obscene amounts of cash for items that aren't real in videogames they've cankered the honor of with their updates. Hats and gay weapon paintjobs that do fuckall, with in-game event passes purchasable by people who payed full price for the game. Most of which were made by community members of which Valve is being payed for. In a manner of speaking, their money is in the bank and they're living off the interest.

    Valve has hit the skids as far as I'm concerned. Otherwise the story likely wouldn't have been leaked by the very guy who wrote it.

    The community runs CS:GO, Dota 2, and Team Fortress 2, its going to take the community to make Half Life 3.
