when is HL3 coming out


OMG, the tears, I have not laughed that hard in a while. When is Half Life 3 coming out Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing


there was a recent reddit post of a video of Gaben talking about linux and what it would take to cause a shift in the industry towards linux because they cant rely on windows given windows 8.

so i feel like deals between Ubuntu, Valve, and Nvidia, will potentially force a release of HL3 in summer 2014 or early 2015 when the then PC specs have outclassed the next gen specs

oh em gee Pokemon X Y in october

How did I forget

I kind of really want it because I can now be a black protagonist (well sort of. I can say I'm from Brazil).

Yes I'm probably just buying the same game in a new package, I know Razz

At least I didn't get fooled into buying B&W2. From what I've seen, that was really just a bland copy with some new pixels.

My problem with the Pokemon games is that they're too slow. I still occassionally pull out a ROM of one of the old ones when I'm feeling nostalgic and run it at 2-4x the intended speed. They're fun, then! But at the default, handheld speed, it just takes forever to do anything, for no good reason. Even similar games, like the Dragon Quest Monsters line, don't suffer from this problem. There's just something about the way the Pokemon games handle wait times, or something, that lets them get better by running them double time.

I usually speed the text up in the settings. But yeah, it's slow. It's an evil I take for the pleasure of beating up and raising cute critters.

and theres character model customization

and mega evolutions that work like digimon

Yeah, the mega evolutions don't really entice me that much but aaah character customizations (what can I say, I like dress up)

Okay the trailer for that, I admit, kinda sold me to. That is some well-done dark humor.

In game news that has nothing to do with Japan:

http://games.yahoo.com/blogs/plugged-in/grand-theft-auto-v-makes-1-billion-three-165629861.html

Quote:
Sales of Grand Theft Auto V have topped $1 billion a mere three days after the game was released, easily setting a new record for the entertainment industry.

That's nearly two weeks faster than the previous record-holder, last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which took 15 days to hit the billion-dollar mark. It’s faster than any other entertainment property, period. It took “Avatar,” “The Avengers” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II” 17 days to reach $1 billion.

. . .

GTA V was already a record-setter. In its first 24 hours, the game took in $800 million, which greatly surpassed any previous game. Last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 sold over $500 million in that time period, while Modern Warfare 3 sold over $400 million on Day One.
