... I am really amazed at the amount of time the forum members have put into this viral marketing event. Valve kicks ass! They make it fun to play the game even without the PC.

 The analysis of the update and its concomitant secrets by the community is incredibly in depth. I would place some links here, but I am at work and Steam is blocked. :(

 I remember something very similar when Metroid Prime 2 Echoes was in the works. Retro Studios had this entire big hunting party, etc. Complete with a fully functional website for a company developing tech used in Samus' suit, etc. Complete with "Never send a man to do a woman's job" images as well (stab at Halo) I like it when game developers really get the community involved and excited for the game!

 I kinda hate how they dumbed down Samus though. Now she's just some "chick in armor" 

She's the Hared of the Chihu people, genetically modified to be half bird alien and her armor is one of a kind. The SNES games even made a point of this when she met a "blue samus" who was a cheap knockoff who tried to replicate her armor and got pwoned by Space Pirates.

When valve cam to digipen and played Narbacular Drop they were like this game suks who would want to play this. this game is crap a couple months later they came back and was like hey you guys have something here. And they hired the team! A couple of years later we get portal. Some times i just love this school.

More GARBAGE from Valve, can't wait.

 So don't buy it.You seem to complain a lot about Steam and Valve. Why not just close your account, delete the client, and be done with them. Buy all your games from D2D, or retail stores then.

Hmmm... The Half Life series, TF2, Portal, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, the Source engine, amazing sales twice a week, thriving gaming community, the ability to play games on any computer...  I'm still looking and I can't seem to find this "garbage" that the post mentions.

 Mmmm Half-Life series! It's kinda funny. I never really got in to HL1, but then I played through, and beat HL2, then went back and played through HL1. Or maybe it's not funny... I dunno.

 

Either way, I agree. I've seen no garbage coming from Valve. They make some top notch digital entertainment. Even their "small" games like Portal, or Left 4 Dead series are  just as good, if not better than the huge AAA titles you seefrom some other devs.

I can't wait for Portal 2. And maybe, JUST MAYBE, we'll get HL2-EP3 with it... Another Orange box thingy?

You're so cool. That's what you wanted to hear, right?

This is good news. I hope an eventual Portal 2 does not come alone. 

HL2E3 is still up there on my wish list. 

And while we're at it... a full blown HL3 to follow suit.

Back a few years Valve had enough resources to develop Episode 2, TF2 and portal at once. Now I should believe that all them developers did for the past 2 years is work L4D 1 and 2 and a few patches?

I can feel a major game in the air something grand, perhaps as big as a '77 Le Mans - those things were huge.

This honestly makes me very happy to hear this. :} I LOVE Portal, and this will be great news to hear from Valve... I still want my HL: EP 3!
