What’s the difference between Call of Duty: Black Ops and a restaurant? A restaurant usually has a good host and servers that work.
"You know what? I don't even care about HL3 anymore.
I've moved on with my life. I loved, and still love, the Half-Life series, but since then I've played many good games, and a few great games. At first I was sort of excited to wait, believing that Valve was simply hard at work making something amazing. Then, as months became years, I grew angry. Where was my Freeman? Why had we heard nothing? More importantly, why had we heard nothing when Valve continued to produce other games? Soon, there were sequels to those other games, and somewhere along the line I just... sort of stopped caring. Half-Life, Black Mesa, City-17, The Citadel and every place in that universe will always hold a special place in my gaming heart, but the world is bigger than one man with a crowbar now. Even if he is the last free man.
Life goes on, whether you like it or not. No one can stop the inexorable march of time. Not even Gordon Freeman." -Trideramentium
The lack of communication between Valve and the Half-Life community has been a frustrating experience. While continued support for current and future products is greatly appreciated, fans of the Half-Life series have waited years for a word on when the franchise will return.
So, Instead of focusing efforts in a negative and disrespectful way, we have decided to gain Valve's attention by delivering a basic message:
Your oldest and longest running fanbase would like better communication.
Waiting patiently for over four years can be challenging as a fan, especially when E3 comes and goes without any sign of the Half-Life series and its continuation. Valve had stated that information was scheduled to be released towards the end of 2008, and we believe that if they have chosen to change those plans, fans should be acknowledged, regardless of developmental plans for the next Half-Life project.
The entire trilogy of episodes was scheduled to be completed and released by 2007, and if Valve have decided to do other things for the time being, that is fine; all that we ask for is a basic response on the matter, and to let fans know whether or not the current story arc is scheduled to conclude at another point in time.
In addition: This message is in no way, shape or form attempting to rush the development of the Half-Life series; in fact, most members agree that Valve should take the time needed to deliver a complete and polished product.
If you agree with the above message and statements, please join this group and share your support constructively.
Hopefully such attention will be recognized by Valve, and the community's voice will be heard.
The best FPS I've played in a long time. Employs many well known gameplay elements. Don't be scared away by some of the new gameplay elements like the HRV, basically a legal wallhack and the Hardsuit, a big powered exoskeleton, these elements are all well balanced and worth it. Features a high degree of customization.
A turn-based strategy game that represents the genre. The game mechanics are so simple and basic that there is no luck involved, just pure skill and pure fun. Think you've got what it takes? Well think again, cause it's hard as ****.
