    The chaps over at Halflife2.net have received an email from Valve's Gabe Newell stating an image that seems to tease a Half-Life reveal at E3 is faked.
    Well there has been more than enough evidence against the legitimacy of the "Freeman 14th" picture which found its way into the rumour mill this week. Gabe said the surprise isn't Episode 3 & the history of the document shows a lot of tampering.

    Further confirmation from Gabe Newell to our staff writer DigiQ8 has hopefully put to bed any further doubt. However we do still do look forward to the Portal 2 related surprise!

    which doesn't mean the surprise isn't HL3! Nor that it doesn't contain Episode 3. Or that Gabe isn't just taking part in a HL style information warfare campaign. Its the next level in LA gaming!

    It wouldn't surprise me if he sent out an email with deliberate disinformation (Valve is a secretive company by nature), but if the "G-man" image is fake then it is fake...who knows? It's not that long until E3 though, so we'll know then...probably, lol.

    They got transformed into a "casual" game company. I remember reading an interview with Richard Gray (aka Levelord)

    Apparently this was smooth talk for Sin Episodes being very dead. Unless they're secretly working on it, I guess.

    Well written and amusing way to tell us "it's late" :) Though who really knows when it's going to be released anyway, given it's schedule is governed by Valve Time.

    I'm excited for HL3, but I'm at least 5x as excited for WoW: Cataclysm... I guess I don't just need to calm down according to tangey; I must in fact be shot with tranquilizer darts! :lol:

    Well, WoW is different, we have The Game, it's called WoW. Then we have games, that's the rest

    Well, there was a grammatical error in Dr. Breen's speech... I thought that was a bit too nub for Valve to let slip past. Oh well.

    Hopefully we'll have some more HL SOMEDAY. Hopefully we'll get to go back to Black Mesa too, because it's a shame they blew that place up. They should retcon events so it never happened. :D
