You know what's more annoying than this news and the lack of news about anything Half Life? The God damn shills on the comments board who won't let disappointed fans vent their frustration about how Valve has treated it's #1 series and the fans of it.
Does Valve pay you people to call those of us who are pissed "entitled", or "bitter" or whatever other negative term you want to use? Seriously is there a Valve Defense Force that pays you to try and shout down rightly annoyed/angered fans? We can't be pissed off about waiting 6 years for a sequel? 3 years for a supposed "episode"? without as much as a screen shot?
People are not saying they fucking hate Half Life and the series is shit, they're saying they're pissed because Valve can't show a God damn thing of a series they love. Understand the difference and please shut the fuck up! Unless of course they are paying you, then you at least have a legit reason.
