Numerology Proves Half Life 3 Will Be Announced At E3. Really

Not a day passes we don't get some "rumour", wishful thinking, or outright bulls**t about Half-Life 3's imminent arrival. This "tip", sent by "Igor", now adds numerology to the mix. Hell, it's at least as reliable as all the other nonsense we hear.

Here it is, verbatim:

Gabe Newell's Rank on Forbes' Richest Men List: 864

Years between HL and HL2: 7 Years Years between HL2 and L4D2: 5 Years Years between L4D2 and Portal 2: 3 Years

Total: 753

864 - 753 = 111

1 + 1 + 1 = 3

3 = HL3 or Episode 3 (or E3)

Well there you have it. It's as good as unimpeachable proof to me. Someone go pick apart Nostradamus' texts, I'm sure we can find a corroborating statement in there, too.


    How is this news?

          "At Kotaku Australia, we’re carefully trying to build a reputation for creating the strongest, most engaging content surrounding games and gaming culture."

          Sorry bruz, but this ain't exactly a news site.

            This is neither strong or engaging, so it clearly fails that site description as well.

              That's purely subjective.

              I found it to be engaging.

            Funny how you quote Kotaku Australia in specific, as they don't waste my time with this kind of Kotaku US crap.

          Please if you must act like a child head to escapist. We want people to contribute, ask each other questions and post witty comments. We don't wish for kotaku to turn into a screaming match.
          I personally saw this as a good joke about all the HL3 conspiracy theories out there. Owen is just showing us one of the latest "theories" that exists. No need to jump down his throat. Plus its a Sunday not exactly opinion piece day.

            All of those are just subjective as whether or not this a strong or engaging piece.

    Another generic 'ugly world' shooter.

      Can't tell if trolling/

    This is stupid. And a waste of time.

    aw man, just cancel the game already!!!

      There's no way that it's cancelled, Valve isn't that stupid. And they've spent much longer silent about a game before. TF2 ring any bells?

    Whenever we see something on a site that doesn't interest us, should our first instinct really be "complain" or just move on? Especially since "interest" is subjective.

    I'll give you a hint; one is more mature.

      And yet complaining about complaints is the peak of maturity.
      Nothing you ever say in the comments will ever stop people from complaining. Nothing you ever say in the comments on the matter will ever be as witty as you may think it is, or as original, or anything.
      All you're ever doing is providing proof they're getting attention, and giving them a reason to continue commenting.
      Just ignore and/or report it. Anything else is furthering the problem.

        Then arent you furthering the problem as well by relplying to his complaint ? lol

    Half Life 3? I still haven't got Shenmue 3 goddamit!

      I'm still waiting on Ricochet 2

      I'm still waiting on Ricochet 2

    Well guys, I didn't know this, so it's NEWS to me.

    LET THE GAME DIE !!!!!!!! Far out.

    TBH I'll eat anything on this site right up if it's about Gabe Newell or HL2E3. (or HL3)

    Gabe has already stated that they're all working on Richochet 2 and NOT Half-Life 3, so crawl up and hug your knees Gman theorists and Freeman fans! Ha ha!

    It's just a 3, who is to suggest it's Half Life? Why not L4D3 or Portal 3? :P

    Surprised this was a Plunkett post.


    also it will be announced on the 7th of june at E3 <-
    X = (2 + 0 + 1 + 2) + 5 + -7

    Combine like terms: 2 + 0 = 2
    X = (2 + 1 + 2) + 5 + -7

    Combine like terms: 2 + 1 = 3
    X = (3 + 2) + 5 + -7

    Combine like terms: 3 + 2 = 5
    X = (5) + 5 + -7
    X = 5 + 5 + -7

    Combine like terms: 5 + 5 = 10
    X = 10 + -7

    Combine like terms: 10 + -7 = 3
    X = 3

    X = 3

    Solving for variable 'X'.

    Move all terms containing X to the left, all other terms to the right.

    X = 3

    Gabe already said they weren't announcing it at E3

    This comment section is as bad as ign's if dont like the articles don't read them.

    I got the silver medal on Gigatrack today. Yeeeeeah

    The sad thing is if Valve really does announce Half-Life 3 at E3 this idiot will think he was right even though he was probably seeing something in nothing

    Looks like he was wrong.
