Mornin '09

That does it, I think it's time Valve said something about HL2: Episode Three. Anything, guys! Just a few measly crumbs of info or media (or both)! Screw it. If I was Valve, I'd turn Ep. Three into a full installment - Half-Life 3! Ah, that would get my gaming juices flowing like you wouldn't believe (and, for the record, they're not flowing right now).

Yup, EP3 needs to be shown. NAO! Valve is too damn slow with the Episodes. Sure the quality of them is mindblowingly amazing but hey, speed up fellas! The Episodes were meant to be, as is called in the console language, DLCs. But it's not happening.

I wouldn't want EP3 to be turned into HL3 though. Because Valve will take another 5 years to come out with that!

I am Half Life starved man.

Good job Fuckd

I wouldn't go so far as to call the Episodes "mindblowingly amazing" but they are perhaps more immersive than any shooter I've played last year.

I'm looking forward to ep 3, and yeah, a full installment would be pretty damn sweet! =D

And how come your gaming juices aren't flowing right now? There's plenty of stuff to play right now! =)

Hi there.
What!? Juices not flowing? Look man, just take a ‘closer’ look at BoTD and get it going. No excuses. Chop, chop.
Oh, and I got no proof, of course, but I have this weird, overwhelming feeling that Valve IS secretly working on HL3. (A tiny, little flow? Maybe?)
  Fuckd__4_Life: I guess. What has Valve going now anyway? L4D is done…

Vader you have some serious explaining to do!
  The Heart Of Darkness: Answer ME!!
finaleve Apr 02 2009, 02:05 am EDT
Even though I am not quite sure on whats going on in the HL2 series...its still pretty kickass. I mean, they are expanding on the series now so when they actually come out with a HL3, you'll be blown away.

...or so I hope.
Terminator Apr 02 2009, 05:39 am EDT
Thanks for NOT telling me about the nude pics Vader, all this time I've missed damn fine women!!!! Better late than never I guess. Thankfully, it seems I'm not the only one in the dark here.
Dick_Swet Apr 02 2009, 07:06 am EDT
Just let Dex put a bullet in your knee now and I'll forgive you Vader.
The Heart Of Darkness Apr 02 2009, 07:15 am EDT
Vodoo we will never forget this, I would like to thank you for that enlightening piece of information on behalf of all the grateful AT visitors
  Dick_Swet: Sure. :)
Vodoo: The Internet Guru is appeased by your humble gratuity

Eh, I liked the sequel and its episodes a whole lot. It's the best thing ever, might not live up to the original, but they were still a joy to play. During some "dialog" events with NPCs, the atmosphere feels just right, as does the "dialog". Too bad it takes such long leaps for the story to move forward, but they try to give you the feeling like you're not the center of the whole conflict, even if you are the outstanding factor in it. Same as in Half-Life.
InsanePotato Apr 02 2009, 07:50 am EDT
Holy crap there were nudes every day? I've just gone through like 3 months of these in the last 10 minutes with this new found info. I've been coming here for forever, how didn't i know this lol.

TooDrunkToFunk Apr 02 2009, 09:10 am EDT
The nudes use to be the default, but from what I remember, and I'm sure Vader can correct me, the wonders of the nude female form began to affect the participation of the site's sponsors.

There was a message posted way back when about an alternate file path name one could append to Atrip's URL that would restore the botd to a pre-puritanical state; I'm sure you could dig it up if you poke around ;)

Though maybe it's easier to just add "_n" to the botd file path name :)
paulie14wyh Apr 02 2009, 10:43 am EDT
ok well next question is there a way to find more pics of the normal botd?/ more pics of the _n botds would also be nice
Vodoo Apr 03 2009, 03:44 am EDT
listen up ladies, the way to a man's heart is by talking to his penis.
