  1. If you were hoping to attend the Portal 2 event scheduled during E3 at Los Angeles' Regal Theater, it seems you're out of luck. Valve has notified the press via email that the dark-humored physics puzzler's presentation has been cancelled. The developer's announcement isn't all bad news however, as it promises to reveal a "surprise" instead.

    I really hope it's Left 4 Dead 3 =P But only because I haven't played Half Life 2(otherwise it would be Half Life 3? or Episode 3?)

    Cool I was hoping valve would make rehash 3 after rehash 2. L4D2 brought as much new content as crysis warhead did to crysis. Not very much.

    I just finished Portal a few days ago. This e-mail is really amusing, but if you take in consideration the personality of the one who wrote the e-mail (the char from the game) i think they will definitely not cancel it.
    But who knows?
  10. The cake is a lie. Maybe the surprise is a lie. :)

    The Guest has a point! but the cake wasn't actually a lie but was not easy to get to so i bet they haven't cancelled just moved the conference to somewhere else! But who know!
  12. I'm making a note here; Epic fail. :(

    If it is HL2 EP3, it will probably come out in stores in a package deal with HL2, HL2 EP1 & HL2 EP2 included in the box to screw the people who already own them again.

    suprise suprise? :p
