Video – Peter Molyneux’s son begs for Half-Life 3

Episode Two

Milo’s alive after all, it seems. Okay, not quite.

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has tweeted a video of his son Lucas pleading directly to Valve to reveal Half-Life 3.


“I’m really looking forward to Half-Life 3, but I know you’ve got Portal 2 and a load of other games on your hands,” says Lucas.

“It’s been a long time that I’ve been waiting, but I’ve been trying to entertain myself with Portal and everything. I think you make really great games and stuff, and my dad does as well.”

Of course, Peter has to promote Fable III somewhere in the video.

“Buy Fable III, not Half Life 3,” he says at one point.

It’s worth a giggle, just to hear Lucas ask when the “demo” is coming out.

Watch it below.

    Wasn’t Half-Life (2) a 15?

    “Senior Microsoft producer encourages underage children to play violent videogames.”

    That’ll be a fantastic headline in the Daily Fail.

    Can’t fault the kid…

    They’d need to bump it up a notch; “Microsoft trains children on murder simulators!”
    A shocking story of one producers decent into madness as he uses his own children to test out the latest violent filth.

    @1 Exactly what I was thinking.

    He may be underage, but as Psychotext said, you can’t fault the kid.

    We need some HL3 all up in here!

    Seriously hope he Peter gets pwned for this… It’s funny his son can’t wait much longer but he can wait a couple more years…. I doubt he’ll even be 15 by then… What about Episode 3 never mind the full sequel

    I have tapes my dad recorded of me talking when young and this kid sounds unnervingly like me.

    That kid is Harry Potters friend, no?

    #15 4 years ago
  16. Blerk

    So what he’s basically saying is “give us Half Life 3 or the kid gets it!”, right?

    #16 4 years ago
  17. DSB

    @16 Pfff, that’s no joke. Dude already killed Milo.

    ““Buy Fable III, not Half Life 3,””

    “Seriously hope he Peter gets pwned for this… It’s funny his son can’t wait much longer but he can wait a couple more years…. I doubt he’ll even be 15 by then…”
    You hope he gets “pwned”? Why the bloody hell.. And I don’t understand what’s the deal with him being 15

    Who the hell is watching the age ratings anyway? This kid is awesome!

    #22 4 years ago
  23. themadjock

    @20 Because he has released a video showing that he let’s his son play violent videogames that are rated 15. The UK media would crucify he for admitting that. I have half a mind to email the daily mail – a notoriously reactionary paper in the UK and send them the link.

    #23 4 years ago
  24. Psychotext

    You mean like 99% of the rest of the British public tmj?

    #24 4 years ago
  25. DSB

    @23 Yeah, we should all do our part to promote sensationalist hysteria.

    Don’t forget to mention terrorism, communism, any new strain of flu and Islamic expansionism.

    Good day, sir!

    I hope peter really gets slated for this. Please god do.

    #26 4 years ago
  27. themadjock

    …but obviously as I don’t care what he let’s his son do and hate the british media’s war on gaming I won’t, but it was a silly thing for him to do.

    #27 4 years ago
  28. manamana

    KAP sucks, just like themadjock. You guys have never watched a horror- or (nottomention) porn-movie at underage?! Go screw you! I’m with DSB on this one!

    Cmon Valve, show us a little trailer pleaz!

    #28 4 years ago
  29. No_PUDding

    “How am I supposed to talk, or something?”

    That doesn’t even make sense. It almost sounds like the kid wants to be told which button to press in a videogame.

    WOAH META, dude.

  30. Blerk

    I’ve let my son play 15-rated stuff too. You’ll never take me alive, coppers!

    “You’re doing really great work, and stuff, and all”

    Sooner this guy supersedes Peter, the better. CVG won’t be able to make any headlines out of that!

  34. Blerk

    Don’t forget my son can shoot too now!

    #34 4 years ago
  35. Johnny Cullen

    I’m totally calling the police, Blerk. I’m emailing the Daily Mail as we speak.

    #35 4 years ago
  36. No_PUDding

    Blerk, that’s awful, if only he were brought up properly like me.

    Sure Driver 2 was an 18, and I was 9 or 10 at the time, but it didn’t have the shooting, and stuff, or something, and all.

    P.S GTa2 came first.

  37. Johnny Cullen

    Seriously, I like how everyone’s gone mental over this. What started as a joke has become serious.

    Protip: I owned GTA: Vice City when I was 11, bought GTA: San Andreas when I was 13 (alas with someone with me) and I bought GTA IV when I was 17 without any ID, although that’s a massive flaw on the shop’s part, not mine.

    Anyways, as long as it’s supervised right and the parents allow it, I see no harm in it.

  38. Blerk

    When I was a lad games didn’t have ratings! We spent hours sniggering over Soho Sex Quest on the Speccy when we were 12.

    And look at me now – a registered sex off… I mean “fine upstanding citizen”!

    #38 4 years ago
  39. No_PUDding

    Exactly Johnny, I’ve grown up totally normally.

    EDIT: You win Blerk

    But seriously, when did GTA2 come out? I know I had it late, but thinking about it, I must have had it even younger than 9 or 10. GTA3 came out when I was in Year 6, I think.

    Mine was definitely a little too macabre, also creative writing -1 for using ‘themselves’ twice.

    Good show Blerk. Just keeping you on your toes old man.

    I watched the terminator, alien, godfather, predator films before i was in double digits. I was about 9 when lock stock and two smoking barrels came out aswell, watched it with my dad…fantastic film. Goldeneye on the N64 i was shooting shit in the face, Quake on the N64 i was shooting shit in the face, bomberman on the Sega I was basically a terrorist collecting shit from space while blowing shit up…in the face.

    I turned out fine.
    Or did I?!

  43. Psychotext

    I watched the uncut version of Basic Instinct when I was about 14… and I watched it again, and again, and again.

    I had no idea what it was before I watched it, I asked my sister if I could borrow it off her and I remember her asking me if I knew what it was. :D

    Why are you being such an adjudicator today, Johnny? You’re declaring winners left, right and centre, except for the one thread where it matters. You should probably just send me the Xbox and be done with it.

    Also, I can’t believe this comment section has progressed so far without anyone commenting on the YouTube preview still.

    So I guess we can all agree that game rating across Europe is shit and useless…….so can you stop posting those ugly huge ass numbers over the art covers please :D

    Damn PEGI rating

    “I’ve been wating so long for Half-Life 3 to come out”!!
    if we assumed that he is 12 now means he played HL2Ep2 when he was 9, n ep1 in 6, n HL 2 in 3, n the 1st one he was playing it after each breastfeed..
