Possible Half-Life 3 Things Are Thinging on the Interwebs

hl3 ign

So, my buddy Bill is pretty UP WITH THE PC GAMEZ in ways that I am definitively not. A few minutes ago, he sent me the above image, telling me, “The IGN thing is a quote from Half-Life 2.” Fair enough, I say. He speculates that it could have something to do with the oft-discussed Half-Life 3. It’s possible, I think. I show Lawrence, he says, “HMMMMM.”

Then Bill sends me this link: http://orange.half-life3.com/apache2-default/

You click it, it takes you to a blank page that says “It works!” It’s true. It does.

I say, what is this thing, Bill. He says that, according to Whois, Valve owns the domain for half-life3.com. He’s right!

Bill also says of the above URL, “the /apache2-default/ part is something that goes in when you first install apache, which is something that makes websites work.” I thank him for telling me this, because that is something I definitely didn’t know. Bill’s a smart dude.

Bill also tells me that all this unfolded over on Reddit.

So what does all this mean? Well, the website for the Orange Box that includes Half-Life 2 includes the word “orange” in the URL, as does the above link. So, something is happening with Half-Life 3. Maybe. Possibly.

Or, you know, maybe not. This could all pretty much be nothing. So there’s that, too.

Thanks for the tip, Bill!

  6. LOOK I’M JUST SAYIN’ BILL IS A HELPFUL GUY AND HE DIDN’T SAY ‘YO THIS IS HALF-LIFE 3′ HE WAS ALL JUST LIKE, ‘LOOK SOME STUFF, MAYBE INTERESTING, PROBABLY NOT’ SHEESH

    • What Half Life fans read:

    • HEADLINE: BILL CONFIRMS HALF LIFE 3

      • If I were in a position to confirm Half-Life 3, it’d be an Alyx dating sim.

        Just to add some things Reddit (and I, to some degree) found out while dinking around this afternoon: all of the half-life2.com sites (orange, black, ep2, etc) ‘work’ on half-life3.com. So someone probably just copied the configuration from one site to the other. After doing some research, this has been happening for at least two months.

        A volunteer mod on the Steam forums says s/he spoke with the person running the Steam_Support twitter feed, and it’s just a coincidence.

        Soooo, sorry, false alarm everyone.

      • I bet its for the meet the pyro video and this is just a massive troll. That quote COULD be talking about half life 3, or it could just be them trolling and talking about the pyro burning everything down. I would be pleasantly surprised if it was half-life 3 but with valve and their shenanigans, you can never know

  7. Haven’t I confirmed HL3 in almost every valve article? It’s basic patterns of absolutely unrelated association… Gabe is sending hit squads of super lesbian assassins after me for decoding Valve’s secret weapon… Now, excuse me. One of them is starting to take of my—–

    trust not what you see wait until the truth is outted lest you beleive in lies…..again
