Valve’s Portal 2 Video Hints at Half-Life 3…Maybe
Apparently, there’s this game out there, Half-Life or something, that the kids all love. That’s what I hear. And apparently again, these wacky kids have been eagerly awaiting any sign that there’s going to be a Half-Life 3 soon—and some gamers think they’ve seen that sign this weekend.
According to a post on Rock Paper Shotgun, Valve fans are speculating that the video the company prepared for this weekend’s VGAs on Spike were peppered with references to a forthcoming Half-Life 3 game. As you can see in the video above, Portal 2’s Wheatley floats in space, and starts reading his coordinates before being cut off. What numbers does he list? “One, one, one…”
Which, you know, is three.
In addition, the text at the top of the video reads “Observation Satellite ‘Lanthanum,’” which the RPS post explains means “To lie hidden” in Greek, reading “λανθανω.” Of course, that first Greek character is seen all over the place in Half-Life. Right?
So there you go. Incontrovertible proof. Or something.
