Bloody lovely, maybe my grandchildren would be alive by the time BC3 was released. If they lived to 150

Maybe by then, cryogenic freezing would be a thing and some piece of humanity would be left intact to witness it.


Nah, another ice age will kill us all and our housepets will evolve into the dominant races just in time to play it. Of course all that will happen a few millenia before HL3 comes out.

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

As long as I still have access to my games, I wouldn't care. It's not like I have stock in EA/Valve (in Valve's case it's a private company so I couldn't even if I wanted to).

The topic is now changed to "Your reaction, Blizzard cancels Christmas"

How would you react?


you don't need this to be hypothetical since given the release date of WoD this will actually happen.

Just like coke and pepsi, valve and ea are actually the same company creating a false duality to drive sales, its even in the name of their distribution platform steam, bet you never noticed that before, blown your mind hasn't it.

Pretty sure EA is worth more than Valve.

Dragon Age Inquisition would show us the footage we have but never actually get released.

My reaction to Valve buying EA: Why throw perfectly good money away? Also, I would have to wonder if EA was about to go bankrupt or something.

EA has way too many employees for Valve so I can't imagine valve would keep them all... plus Valve would probably lose a lot of money from the deal. The one thing Valve has going for them is that they're small.

This is like asking "The United States just Annexed Canada and Mexico... Your reaction?"

At least we would get HL3.
