The lights are on
Update: It looks as though the image in question is some kind of troll of a troll, making it a form of highly enriched supertroll. Beware.
Original story: An image making the rounds on Reddit shows Valve CEO Gabe Newell with a pair of frightening knives and a fairly convincing scowl. If you look closely in the background, you may notice something else, too.
Valve's been accused of teasing fans about the existence of Half-Life 3 for a while now, but the company has shot down rumors that anything's in the works. OK, then. I guess y'all are just a bunch of jerks. Right on.
Email the author Jeff Cork, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
wow half life three in the background.... cause there is no way that could be something like future ads or something I mean it's not like they plan on these things....
Well all know it's in the works. Come on man!
C'mon man! Why only two knives? Wait a minute, there's another one by his elbow! Maybe...
Perhaps he's asking "Which knife should Gordon Freeman carry in Half-Life 3?" In that case, I would go with the one on the left.
Valve, just admit it already.
P.S. I search for "exercise ball" on this website ALL THE TIME.
I've seen the knife collection at Valve and it's really impressive. But, they've gotta be showing something about Half-Life 3 at E3...
Newell says: I will release Half-life 3 if someone manages to beat me [trolling][with knives].
I says: "Sometimes I feel like Gabe Newell's watching me!".
...I hate you.
Gabe Newell. You genius troll! But enough jokes Gabe...TELL US THAT YOU'RE DEVELOPING HALF-LIFE 3!
Okay, I just need to say that knife on the left (Gabe's right) is friggin sexy.
