Okay. Now where is the actual game, Valve?

Valve fan site ValveTime.net claims to have gotten a hold of Half-Life 2: Episode 3 concept artwork illustrated in 2008. The site says the artwork is official, and that it wouldn’t post anything “unless it was 100% confirmed.”

Steam forum moderator Smash also confirmed its legitimacy: “This is official art, and I’m shocked that this day has come!”

A Facepunch forum member speculates the artwork is from Andrea Wicklund, whose work is similar to the leaked images. She has worked at Valve since 2006.

Get the batch below.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

      @Malcolm Reynolds: Woah dude. WOAH! TAKE THAT BACK!

      Come on, I’m sure you’ve played Half-Life 2. That series is frigging unbelievable!

      And if you’ve played Dota 2 and have a RTS background, you must know that Dota 2 is the next Counterstrike? Do you know that? Don’t knock Valve that much.

      I mean, they are being lazy bums with their franchises, and their DRM is a pain in the butt…. but they have some good games under their title.

      Kidding though, not that defensive here. But check out Dota 2. And Half Life 2 is still a frigging unbelievable game with some of the best sound design of any game ever. Also… Portal 2 is pretty avant garde as far as videogames are concerned. Valve has done some awesome stuff.

      @Malcolm Reynolds:
      I’ve never really played anything from Valve, but I still know that they’re one of the best developers.
      At least regarding Half Life and Portal.
      I dislike Counter Strike, TF2 and Dota.

    Not a valve fan.

    Hated half life 1 on PC back in 97. I thought it to be both a bore and a chore to trudge through.

    Half life 2 is the same with slighty better graphics. IMO

    RTS is my least favorite genre so I have no interest in any RTS no matter the dev.

    L4D was okay. L4D2 was a glorified expansion pack.

    I also dont typically enjoy puzzles interrupting my gameplay so Portal is def not for me.

    Valve, like Bethesda and Bioware as well as a handful of other devs could rot in PC development hell for all I care.
    I think all their stuff is overrated dressed up turds.
    Im a console gamer through and through and have been since the early 80′s when I was a young lad.

    PC devs make games that have a “PC” feel and they have never crossed over well to me. I can tell a game rooted from a PC devs mindset within seconds of booting it up. Its kinda like a blind date but she turns out to be fat.
    Excited about the possibility of finding new love but upon coming face to face with her you see she a slobbingly mess of a cow that you want nothing to do with b/c no matter how much fun someone else may have with her, your personal tastes and standards simply wont allow you to fraternize with something or someone you know can be replaced by more than twice its/their better.

    Haha. What a dumb analogy but you see what I mean right?

    Valve=fat chick
    Console games =megan fox.

    That is all :)

      @Malcolm Reynolds:

      All I can say in response to that is that Megan Fox is a huge bitch in real life…and she has toes for thumbs.

    • rockman29

      @Malcolm Reynolds: Lol OK fair enough.

      But it’s sort of nice that Valve just released a free trailer making thing for Source games…

      I mean… it’s even the one they use themselves to make traileres. That’s pretty awesome.

      Valve is great with community stuff, you got to admit.

  • Malcolm Reynolds

    In his world, Acidicsam actually knows Megan Fox on a personal level to be able to call her a bitch.

    As for her toe thumbs…..I’d suck the sock lint from her toe thumbs faster than you can press your phones speed dial button to the 360 repair center at MS HQ.
