    How would you want HL3 to begin?

    But did the GMan regain control of Gordon? If I remember correctly it was just while the Vorts were busy healing Alyx. I think Episode 3 should begin right where Episode 2 ended, so it can start on an extreme downer and end on a really high note.

    Half-Life 3 is Coming... Not Sure When!

    I think Valve would still benefit from Half-Life 3. The new Doom had extreme success, and a new Half-Life would probably be even more successful (if they do it right, which I don't think would be that difficult). Also it wouldn't hurt their reputation amongst gamers any.

    I had a tour at the Valve HQ recently, this is what I found out.

    "I'm just gonna go take a leak..." I'm a bit disappointed that there are not a lot of news besides Source 2 Portal puzzles.

    New book on the design of Half-Life 1

    That's actually pretty interesting! I've only had a quick look at the first two pages just now, but I'll definitely read the rest later. Looks like there's a lot I can learn from this for my mods.

    Half-Life: Source edit .gcf files

    I think the main problem is that you're deleting the .gcf files and putting your files into the wrong place. What you should do is go to the folder SteamApps/common/Half-Life 2/hl1 and there create a new folder named "custom". In that folder you make another one, which you can give any name. In...
