Seems bittersweet, don't you think? The Borealis is gone, the Combine are none the weaker for it, and we still don't know what the hell G-man is planning. The only real closure was Gordon washing his hands of the situation.

Interesting side note: The Combine's base of operations is a Dyson sphere, named after theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson. I thought that was a nice touch

Survival horror and corporate tie-ins? Pretty bold new direction for the Cooking Mama series.

I bet there's a Saw-like level where you have to shake a baby to death to get out of the room.

Edit: just finished reading Marc Laidlaw's blog post.

Spoiler

My eyeballs almost popped out the moment I read the part where Alyx murders Judith, like, Jesus, that's one ballsy move to turn a likeable character into a despicable one. The ambiguous ending leaves me to believe that a followup to HL2 and its episodes would concentrate on Alyx but that idea in itself sounds pretty off-putting. It's essentally Half-Life 1's ending but with Alyx being taken by the G-Man and, while this could pave the way to a sequel set in a completely different environment, like a never-ending cycle, leaving Gordon to die only to be replaced by Alyx is just an extremely depressing way to finish a story arc. So in a way, Episode 3 was indeed, intended to end the Half-Life series for good. It's too bad that Return to Ravenholm and other attempts at expanding the Half-Life universe from third party developers have gone in vain, even if Episode 3 didn't get cancelled.

Also, Dr. Breen being alive was something that I pretty much expected to see in Episode 3, only, not in that way.

It's also astounding that Marc posted this on the same day as Valve's 21st birthday, like a giant middle finger to the company. Well done, Marc.

The Vita's continued existence is quite interesting, what with it being sort of the inverse of a Nintendo console; first party support for it is dead, and third party games are the only thing keeping it going. And even with that, it's crazy how long it's lived.

Has Valve taken any action against Laidlaw since he dropped the story? I know he disguised it well enough to make it sly, but still. At this point they probably don't give a shit, which is why Laidlaw may have frustratedly spilled the beans in the first place.

But this may not even be the story to Episode 3, it could have just been what he had planned for it, with the implication that the game never even got that far to begin with.

I just can't help but think that, for every Vita game that still manages to come out, how it would be a perfect Switch game.

I haven't heard of them doing so and I doubt they would to be honest. After all, if it wasn't for Marc Laidlaw's work for the Half-Life and Portal franchise Valve wouldn't be where they are now. As for whether or not his blog post was an incomplete draft or not I can't really say. I'm still disappointed that we won't get that game in the first place, especially since Valve has been preferring to go on an Esports binge instead.

Imagine if it was like an AM2R situation where Valve was actually literally just about to announce Half-Life 3 this weekend but then this shit comes out and spoils their plan and so now they just toss the whole thing.

I'm so fuckin excited for a Secret of Mana remake. It's one of my all time favorite games, I just hope they do it justice, especially the music which is like the best game OST ever.

A lot of people saying the graphics look like a PS2 game. While I'm inclined to agree, it's still in development so it could get a lot better. Either way I don't care about the graphics because I need to get this game.

Indeed. Even more so when you consider Sony at some point was looking at setting up some kind of streaming/connectivity between the Vita and whatever home console was their thing at the time [citation needed]; since then the Switch has come along and done the "portable or on the TV" idea, but far more gracefully.

Hoping the Secret of Mana remake gets a Switch port at some point; been interested in that game for a while, and I'd totally pick that over a VC port of the original (assuming that ever happens either).

In Japan the Switch is going to get a release of Seiken Densetsu, Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 (Secret of Mana is technically Seiken Densetsu 2 in Japan)

Seiken Densetsu 3 has never had a western release. Whether it will come overseas or not, nobody is sure, but it would be awesome as hell.

Not to yuck your yum, and I posted about it a while ago in the "games you recently played" thread, but I actually hated Secret of Mana. I heard it was great and gave it a try, but I got to the fight against those two werewolves and just dropped the game. Combat wasn't fun, so grinding wasn't fun, either, and no matter what I did, my AI partners kept dying and being worthless. 

Was I missing something? Like, I really, really disliked the game.

Yeah, the AI is really terrible. The menus are confusing as hell too, like if you want to equip something or use an item. I can see how you would dislike the game, but it's just meaningful to me, I guess.
