theirs no way it could live up to the hype now
Valve is a master troll.
I will say that this is the first year I have not purchased anything during the Christmas sale, which I blame on the new mediocre process. Before I would excitedly check the storefront for daily deals and flash sales and make many driveby purchasing decisions. This year it feels there is no reason to check for anything but for that which is already on my wishlist, which I did on the first day, and found there was nothing worth spending money on at the discounts available. And no, Steam, cards are not an incentive to use the horrible discovery queue...
I don't understand why people say this. ... I am not holding my breathe, but every Half Life game has been great thus-far and Valve has always made quality games. ... Half Life 3 if it ever happens is going to be great and we all know it.
I wonder who started this egg hunt. Did somebody randomly decide to analyze the java script on the steam page looking for HL3 clues? Did a Valve employee tell some friends there was a hidden "search" Easter egg?
I don't think HL2 was great. I don't think HL2 lived up to the hype. I don't think HL3 will live up to the hype either.
