Three surprises. This better be about Episode 3... or else I'll be... well, disappointed.

YOU HEAR THAT VALVE?! DISAPPOINTED!

If any other company other than Blizzard gave an announcement about a future announcement I wouldn't give a stuff, but since it's Valve and we've had Portal 2 (and Left 4 Dead 3 would just be cruel) I'm going to sit and salivate over an Episode 3 announcement incoming.

My hope is that ep3 will be released for free to owners of The Orange Box and that Half Life 3 will be available for Christmas.

Minecraft getting a Steam release and some development grunt help from Valve is fairly certain.

DotA is due for a reveal at some point too, probably sometime next year when it is well and truly cooked.

I would say one of these must be Episode 3... But I remember the last time there was an announcement of an announcement it just turned out to be about Portal 2 coming to the PS3... I got really excited about that because everyone made it sound like it was going to be something huge, and it was such a rubbish announcement icon_lol.gif So I will try not to get my hopes up again!

Damn i love valve, for the simple fact that they call updates/patches, "updates", and don't charge you for it, compared to most other developers/publishers calling updates/patches, "DLC".

Whatever happens, I hope at least one of those surprises is hat related.

If my old peice of shit PC could run portal fine I'm sure Wii wouldn't have a problem.

The only thing my old pc ever had a problem with was, strangley enough the sliding platforms that would lag me up heaps.

NS2 is a separate company that formed from the mod group, Unknown Worlds. You could play the Alpha now if you pre-ordered before the end of July. Looks to be a long way off but progressing better than most mods have recently.

An Episode 3 announcement would be great motivation for me to finally get around to finishing ep2.

I may as well throw my predictions out there...

Sure thing: Portal 2 for iPad.
Long shot: Blue Shift 2
Extreme long shot: Another compilation release similar to Orange Box, including Portal 2 + HL2 E3 + Blue Shift 2. It will be called "Blue Box"

Here are some things valve could do, that really are surprises.

1) They could convert steam to a subscription model. All current steam games free, to all subscribers. Subscription is $20 a month, a revenue split is worked out with the developers.

2) They could launch a TV or Movie based venture. Maybe an online streamed TV station based on gaming. They aim to become the #1 global media source for games news.

3) They could strike a deal where steam is integrated into the service pack for windows 7. Steam becomes the new games explorer, installed on every windows PC.

^ I like the way this guy thinks
