Gabe Newell teases something for E3 "with a 3 in it"

Gabe Newell has launched a firestorm of speculation. After the group 4Chan wrote a bizarre, incomprehensible joint letter to Gabe Newell after Wheatley’s appearance on the Spike TV Videogame Awards.

Newell responded to 4Chan's letter with,“I don’t suppose it would ease your wrath if I told you we’re announcing all of your favourite things at E3 2012?” He then added: “something with a ‘three’ in it.”


Adding to the speculation, Valve’s “Doug Rattman” Twitter account piped up after a long silence, “It begins.” The Twitter account then began tweeting cryptic codes such as, “?K – 63.4 | 37.5 | 20.5 | 47.4 | 13.1 | 12.5 | 27.6 | 72.4 | 54.3 | 70.3 | 34.6 | 15.1 | 60.2 | 21.0 | 38.5 |,” and so on.

Considering Rattman is a character from the Portal series, this would seem to indicate a Portal 3. However, it’s been established that Portal and Half-Life share the same reality. Could Half-Life 2: Episode Three be debuting at E3 2012 – or maybe Half-Life 3?

I dunno. I've had my fill of Portal.

Anyone else getting a sense of de ka vu?

As I said when this was posted a few days ago, all of Valve's major franchises are on 2 and due a 3rd (although portal 3 would be quite close to 2 if it is portal).

"Portal (1)" was enough for me. Won't ever even bother with "P2", let alone a third.
"Left4Dead 3" perhaps?

Seriously? L4D 3? Zombie games overload!!! While I'd prefer Portal 3, I'm OK with Half-Life 3 or just EP3 but only if it has a proper ending and not a major cliffhanger that Valve left us with four years ago.

Maybe they skip 2 and do The Orange Box 3 with Half-Life 2: Ep 3, Half-Life 3, Team Fortress 3, Left 4 Dead 3 and Portal 3? :D

I didn't say I wanted "L4D 3", just that it might be a possibility.
"TF3" is also a strong contender. "Orange Box 2", or "Iridescent Box" as long as "HL3" is included I'll be a happy gamer.

I think that HL3 is long overdue, so I am thinking that it might be it's time to come out.

Just joking, Vet. I wonder if I will ever reach 20,000 by the end of the year:)

By the tempo of your posts, who knows, maybe you might reach it. You are nearly there.
