you know what's more annoying ? we still didn't get a KISS FROM ALYX AT LEAST FROM THE CHEAKS! !?@!#$#@% AND WHERE THE HELL IS THE BEER THAT BARNEY OWED TO GORDON! No no that's not the marc laidlaw i know.
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.
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.
