It was strange though, the easter egg in Portal 2 mentioned a ship in the arctic and the pic mentions a terrarium which is a desert style tank for reptiles so the 2 are completely opposite environments, maybe there are portals involved somewhere.

That easter egg was in HL2: EP2 -.-'

 

Also in HL1 or 2 isn't the line "Prepare for unexpected results" used?

There is intentional links between Portal and Half-Life, specifically with Aperture and Black Mesa, and the Borealis. I was meaning the video I have linked in the post I made earlier.

Thats what im hoping for a great portal 3/HL 3 tie in

 

Those games should be mutually exclusive. It would only result in mindless Valve fanbase circlejerk on the internet. HL universe is the more-or-less mature one of the two.

No need to dilute it with Portal-esque stuff, there's Portal 1 & 2 for that.

 

Having said that, I do realise that the premise of Episode 3 was the Aperture Labs ship full with teleportation technology. But I'll say it once again:

 

Either Half-Life Next is a serieus, uncontaminated entry in the HL universe or it shouldn't be released at all.

 

 

Oh and yes, it won't live up to the hype, but it will be praised to kindom come anyway by both the press and the gaming-culture 'gamers'.

Close, but the actual line is "Prepare for unforeseen consequences", I think it's a tease.

 

EDIT: Even I got it wrong it's been so long :rofl:

Well one of the levels in HL1 was called "Unforeseen consequences" so it's another tie-in. Although we've kept jerked around for years with Half-Life so I'm not getting excited and to be honest, I doubt there's even a new game engine which Valve is badly needing so I'm not even excited for it for that reason.

If it was Half-Life 3, i think there would be more than a magazine reveal. I think we'd see an ARG at least.

While i'll welcome a Portal 3, it would be quite annoying because everybody wants Half-Life 3 and to release another game that isn't Half-Life would be taking the biscuit a bit..

 

Still i'll hold out hope. Plus with next gen consoles just around the corner. It could happen as it is obvious when they show off Half-Life 3. It will be on their new engine, i don't think Portal 3 will be the flagship title to show off their next engine.

My hopes for Half-Life 3 have gone up and down so many times that I've been desensitized to the rumours. I'll wait until they release a screenshot or teaser trailer until I get excited again.

i was just looking at this on reddit, there is also a stream support twitter that said not to update half life 2 because there was an error in it.

Yes it is still a rumour at the moment. While it does hint at Half-Life 3. It could also be Portal 3.
