ValveTime has posted what it claims are leaked shots of Half Life 2: Episode 3 concept art on its Facebook page. According to the claim: “For the avoidance of doubt, I just want to stress that we absolutely would not release these pictures if we didn’t know for a fact they were real. They absolutely are,” said a team member on the Steam forums. “Please just enjoy them as they are, and try not to look for conspiracies that aren’t there. I mean, it’s not like we’re doing it to attract traffic to our site. We know our server can’t cope with the load so we don’t want massive influxes of traffic like this. You may have noticed we’ve been offline since.” Valve has yet to respond to the claim. Hit up the link for a look.

During an interview with Valve bossman Gabe Newell, he was asked why no word on Half-Life 2: Episode 3 has surfaced.
Apparently, there is a good reason for it, but Newell wouldn’t say what it was.
“I get a ton of email everyday saying why aren’t you talking about Episode 3?” he told G4. “And there are very good reasons why we’re not talking about Episode 3, which I can’t talk about yet, but I will.”
Maybe another protest group should form over this. One moaning about how new HL2:E3 info should be released.
We’d sign up.

Speaking to Shacknews, Valve’s Doug Lombardi’s opened up a little on the upcoming Half-Life 2: Episode 3, saying the next installment in the shooter series is a “more ambitious project” than previous chapters.
“We want the next installment of Half-Life 2 to be really big,” he said.
The marketing exec added: “I thought we did a better job of telling the story. Some of those moments there with Eli at the end were pretty dramatic I would say, in terms of what you can do within a game.
“And we’re pretty proud of that. But each of the episodes you saw becoming a more ambitious project as you ramped up towards where the finale’s gonna be of this chapter.”
We’re hoping to see something solid on this before the end of the year.

Speaking to Kikizo, Valve’s Doug Lombardi has given the first hint that we may be on the verge of finally seeing something on Half-Life 2: Episode 3.
“We may at the very end of the year,” he said when asked when we’re going to take a first look at the game.
Precisely nothing is known of Episode 3 at the moment, so it’s nice to know we have something to look forward to.
There’s a full interview through there.

Left 4 Dead’s looking hot, bucko. It’s looking real hot, and inevitably so: it’s a Valve game. Being shown at Games Convention in Germany this week, the co-op zombie shooter has all the hallmarks of another Valve drip-feed classic, and company boss and development legend Gabe Newell probably knows it.
Given that, then, we thought we’d talk about other stuff when we interviewed him yesterday. Things like:
- How Half-Life 2: Episode 3′s development is coming along.
- How Left 4 Dead will follow the Team Fortress 2 content update model.
- How Steam is planned to contain apps like Firefox.
- How Steam will utilise user bandwidth for peer-to-peer delivery.
- How Newell would still love to make a Wii game.
- Why Newell hates being told what to do by console manufacturers.
- Why buying a “bunch of ads” is not the best way to sell a game.
- How EA is the only partner Valve’s ever had that paid up all the money it owed.
- How every Team Fortress 2 content update bring a sales spike of 20 percent.
- How Newell gets approached twice a week to sell Valve.
- How Newell really doesn’t want to sell Valve.
You know. Stuff like that. Did we say how amazing Left 4 Dead looks?
After the drop.
