Are Valve saving Half-Life 3 for VR or have they just stopped caring at all.

 

As it stands (one never knows) it's not even in the cards. There were some projects in that direction but none of them were good enough so they all got canned. At this point Valve's thinking (and I tend to agree) is that nothing they could release would live up to the hype that has built up over all these years.

 

Fwiw the (or "a") draft for the Half Life 2: Episode 3 storyline was "leaked" by the (one of the?) writer(s) (who is no longer at Valve) so you could read up as to what at least that person had planned for Episode 3.

Yup, Marc Laidlaw was the final nail in the coffin. What sad end to one of the most beloved franchises ever.

 

With Blizzard announcing a mobile game, Fallout 76 being the disaster that it is and Sony delivering a half-arsed PS One Classic, I wonder if a golden age of gaming is upon us. :p

If Cyberpunk releases anywhere near that date I'm going to throw such a hissyfit. ;(

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

The loan CDPR received from the Polish government states that the game has to release before either June or July of 2019.

Nice. I could use a good reason to stay indoors come summer.

When the time comes I will return to my previous form: a mushroom.

He's an artist right? Wiki says Senior World Designer. Diablo 3's world wasn't so bad, but the story sucked and the game design was lead astray. I think Boyarsky probably contributed one of the more successful facets of that game.

art direction of D3? :x

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Or that's just what you want to think. 

 

Still have to replay D2 to see this amazing story people are telling me it had.  Found it about the same level of interesting as D3's, at least from memory.

Speaking of which...

 

 

 

I should have a D2 disc buried somewhere. I might give it a whirl if I can get off my ass and dig it up.
