    This is getting ridiculous... If that will not be a full time game (read - 5-6 hours minimum), then there will be no excuse to what they were doing all those years lol. :/

    Who knows? maybe they are cooking something! I hope the wait is worth it, which i'm pretty sure it will.

    They are buying super cool sports cars, women and booze. I'm not worried. I have a feeling that episode three will be a full episode like the original was. It just better get here next year.

    It better be good if it's going to take an additional year to finish.
    And I agree with erocker, it better be here next year.

    Probably major upgrades to the engine if not a whole new one too!

    Im thinking that's what they're doing. Episode 3 will be half life 3 for one big finale.

    Maybe they are doing DX11 HL3! :D

    And this has been posted before I think but here's at least one reason for the delay:

    This may be a tad insensitive as you sorta suggest you are dying, but can I ask that you leave those bits listed in your system specs to me?:D

    i dont think hl3 will ever come out tbh, valve is riding high and mighty with the HL series halo around them, if HL3 came out and was disappointing it would be devastating for valve.....but thats just my opinion

    lol

    Well the optimist would say that's one of the reasons for the delay-not to disappoint. Of course, I never actually said I'm an optimist.

    i remember reading an interview where they say that it takes exponentially longer and longer to produce good games because gamers these days want to see cool graphics and a lot of details...

    if HL ep3 will be final, then it only makes sense to make it another hit, rather than just another episode. (i.e. new or much improved engine, longer gameplay... like original HL2)

    Maybe thats whats delayed things. They planed it out for DX 10 and now it's all about DX11 so they have to change a shi load of stuff again.

    No that would give them more reason to make a crappy game....

    Then no one would be waiting for the next installment as you would loose your fan base....

    Another good game would create even more of an outcry for
    MOAR!
    ;)

    Yeah and a DX11 engine does make sense.....

    And why not launch it with an extremely anticipated game
