I love how GlaDos looks cute and frightening at the same time :3

And also NO ONE seem to have noticed that that's not the blue's but the red's engi oô cause as I remember with 'Good for you', when chibi medic-tan made sammichs for heavy, she was the one wondering about him

Portal is the next half-life - It'll tie in to Gordan Freeman somehow!

For the half life bit,you should have put "MODS MODS MODS MODS MODS MODS MODS MODS MODS MODS".

You know, it's funny.

That spot of interest between Ellis and Zoey you predicted turned out to be true after all.

GDC announcement: Episode 3 will launch simultaneously on Mac and PC. Which is why it's taking so goddamned long. REJOICE, O GAMERS!

This comic may not be entirely accurate.

Go to www.teamfortress.com, and look at the 9th March blog post. Examine Saxton Hale's left arm and hand. See a pretty obvious lambda 3 in the picture. Speculate

Here I look at this GLaDOS and I immediately think of my favorite GMOD skin...

Too bad GLaDOS will look the same... Except a little fucked up from the previous game (broken into pieces). Look at the box cover on gameinformer.

By the way zoey+Ellis c:

Any chance you could make a Portal arc with some Gla-DOS tan?

Pretty please?

I think on GLaDOS' Eyes as her breasts because of that comment on the portal 2 announcement.
"removed those cores from GLaDOS' Breasts"

Uhm... May have been said before but you all realize the Borealis is directly linked to Portal 2? That's the ship Eli wanted us to find and destroy because it was made by Aperture Science. I won't be surprised if Glossman doesn't run into Chell or Combine Soldiers.

@ no purple core, why would Glados rebuild herself with a morality core? It's not like the turret defenses need controlling.

@ giant wrench. I like the idea of a quite vague Spycrist wrench.

Spy: Time to CnD around the base yelling for dispensers.

@ http://makani.deviantart.com/art/well-you-found-me-95124241, looks far too much like an old TF2 announcer could (which would half make sense), if the announcer wasn't so much cooler. I prefer this comic's version of Glados better.

Another comic, another inanimate object turned into a sex object. Well done.

But apart from that, good point and the comic works well.

Valve doesn't want to draw attention away from Portal 2. Right after the release: BAM! Half-Life 3 announcement.

I'm relatively certain that the alternate reality game in Portal 1 leading up to the announcement of the sequel also included some HL2: EP3 footage as well.

Maybe, just maybe, valve actually make an update or sequel for HL2, but they keep it secret, and out of nowhere...... SURPRISE!

Half Life isn't getting anything big? what about Black Mesa? Sure, it's not Valve, but there's still going to be a major release this(?) year for each series.
Chaos

I should probably do another "all in one" HL2 playthrough. Last time I did that I enjoyed it just like it was my first time through again.

As for the updates... Bring on The Passing! I WANT MY M60!
gfox
over 14 years ago
Jo, from the comic itself, I thought your point was that the main Valve properties are getting tons of updates/sequels--from TF2 (duh) to L4D (eh) to Portal (wow!)--and then there's HL2 and co... getting neglected in the corner.

But your text blatantly states you don't care... WTF? GIMME MY EP3!

I also miss the Theme naming.

[url=#user_comment_25497]@Neja[/url]: Actually, what rumors I've heard is that HL2,E3 was canceled in favor of snowballing its content into HL3, along with major Source upgrades, which is why it's been so long since any news. Valve would have to be all kinds of stupid to drop the IP entirely, which they're not...
Neja

Some people say that half life 3 (or half lfie 2 ep3) will never come.
i however discard that idea because of the popularity of half life 2...
although it looks like valve is ignoring hl i'm pretty sure that they are doing their best to think off a good storyline etc
hang in there...

I totally understand how you feel, J, but try something real quick: Re-install Half-Life 2 + Episodes and replay them. I did this around Christmas time, and even though it was like my fourth run, It was still more entertaining than most games are on their first. They're that good. Seriously.

ah... I like how Valve does do updates to their games as well as produce sequels to stories that need it. Episode 3... Why? No news since like 2008. All we got was some cryptic concept art and then... nothing. Hell just a "Yeah we're working on it. Dont worry it will be awesome." that would be nice

Nice GLaDOS-tan there, although I think I've seen her drawn that way befGEEZIAMANERD.

I'm not too upset about the lack of HL though. I trust VALVe is spending as much time as possible to make it awesome. Plus, if VALVe gave a date, it'd just be delayed anyway.

Also, mods, and VALVe is awesome.

valve owns. period.


half life is the game I most want to have a continuation... i enjoy the game's story since half life 1, so a conclusion to the whole gordon freeman's suppa quest to save the world is eagerly expected... for a long time now x_x'

but sure, l4d, tf2 and portal are great, too
