The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Half-Life 3 Teased: Prepare For Unforeseen Consequences [Update]

Posted on Wednesday, June 26 @ 07:55:44 PST by

[Update] Turns out the folks at PC Gamer think it's funny to toy with the PC gaming community-at-large. The tease for next month's issue of PC Gamer? It's a big joke that "got out of hand", and was in the joke section of their magazine, which I don't subscribe to and never will after this—especially after gettingHalf-Life enthusiasts giddy like kids on Christmas Eve.Still, Valve has some sort of announcement coming, and whatever it was that happend on Steam Support Twitter below was legit... so maybe there's still hope? Probably not. Trolled again by something Half-Life related. I give up.


[Original]The Internet has been clamoring for it for years. I can't even begin to recall all of the Gabe Newell memes I've come across of him trolling about with Half-Life 3 teases. That all could be coming to an end soon, or we'll witness the biggest troll in Valve's history.

Yesterday, we reported on Steam Trading Cards, and ended it with a teaser straight from the horse's mouth: an announcement that "everyone can be excited about."

Then, PC Gamer magazine teased the following image about what's coming in their next issue that hits newsstands on July 4th:



The cryptic conspiracy doesn't end there. Half-Life 2 received a whopping 3.7GB update recently, which supposedly only adds support for the Korean language. Then the official Steam Support twitter account tweeted that the update "has some issues" followed by some Korean text.


Popping the same Korean text into Google translate provides the following translation: Prepare for unexpected results.

Sound familiar? Am I reading too far into this? Am I caught up in the massive fangasm the far reaches of the Internet are having? Or is Half-Life 3 really being announced soon? Of course, it could be nothing more than a simple language update.
