Reddit is making Half Life 3

Obviously, they're doing everything wrong.
The biggest mistake being that they're using Epistle 3, despite that virtually anyone with an IQ high enough to be developing games (130) is perfectly capable of writing a better script.

Could Sup Forums do any better?

This version of Half Life 3 is way better than what Reddit is doing.
Unfortunately, it needs a few really specialised programmers.

I'm shadowbanned from r/gaming and I have no idea why.
Which really sucks, because r/gaming is a great place to shill, and shilling is all I use reddit for.

The pre-written plot is what gets to me the most.
Not the lack of any creative game mechanics, not the terrible art direction, but that no one had the ounce of talent it would take to replace a pile of garbage list Epistle 3 with something better.

The biggest problem with the voting system is that one of the first comments gets glued to the top, and gets more attention than every other comment combined.
It's barely even worth responding to a thread with more than 10 comments, and that's assuming you even like interacting with redditors.
Also, thread bumping makes more sense than voting.
Why should lurkers decide what topics live and die?
Might as well have the threads that people are interested in live.

I saw the link in YouTube comments actually.

Few things in life are a constant, but I think they could write a scientific theory about how every time some cunt brings up high IQ scores, they're always mildly retarded and feel challenged by it.
It's idiot proof, ironically.

Adrian Shephard's escape from space-jail would be great for testing the engine my ideal version of HL3 would run on.
My ideal version of HL3 relies largely on computer-generated assets (pre-generated, shipped with the game in a very compact format, then unpacked as needed).
Adrian Shephard could escape from a space prison that spans multiple universes, and thus has all sorts of crazy stuff to see.

I have my own idea for the shape of the Half Life multiverse, it's 6-dimensional and hovers above and below a flattened 6-dimensional sphere that's similar to a black hole, but has far greater hawking radiation due to being 6-dimensional and that radiation shapes the multiverse.

I could perhaps give you dreams where you're the little girl!
I'm a pretty decent hypnotist, although I've only done text-based before because my mic is cheap and I'm shy about my weird accent.

That hit close to home. Can't wait for that resource based economy or universal basic income to make this possible. I'd get so much more done and create more value to society than joining another mobile microtransaction game dev purgatory of a company.

Half-Life 3 without a major engine upgrade that brings something new to gaming would just be a disappointment. Obviously people like the story, the setting, the characters, the music, etc. but it's not entirely about that. HL1 and HL2 were partially made to show off what their engine was capable of with A.I., cutscenes, cinematic experiences, vehicles, face animations, etc.

I don't think there's too much that can be done right now, but when virtual reality is capable of handling something like HL3 that's when I'd expect to see it.

Hmmm, this post was a mildly interesting read. Would be cool if you could pull it off, but I don't think even Valve can just pull a supercomputer out of their ass.

Nathan Russell
Nathan Russell

A lot of it makes sense. Some people commented saying "but we want Half-Life TWO EPISODE 3, not Half-Life 3" but IIRC the episodes still brought in some minor improvements to graphics and things like that. I just honestly think Valve is waiting for virtual reality to get cheaper and more capable before continuing with it. People were talking about seeing Gordon finding the Dyson sphere and how awe inspiring it would be, but seeing it in virtual reality would be 100x better.

Back when I used Reddit unironically, Judaism was one of the first places I'd post, but I got banned for arguing with this super religious anti-Zionist when I said that I was a Conservative (denomination) Zionist. He might have gotten banned too, but I doubt it.
Called me a goy and everything.

Doesn't have to be a supercomputer.
I've seen evolution algorithms more complex than the one described run at a decent pace on a home computer.

A render farm would get the work done to a high quality very quickly.

wanting Laidlaw's script
I didn't mean to imply that, I didn't even really read it. I just read what people were saying. It's just that anything like Half-Life will be much better and more immersive with proper VR tech available. Valve was always an innovator with things like that, and even though it seems like they're just the microtransaction king right now it doesn't mean that they've given up on VR and HL.

The dyson sphere was an idea that came from Laidlaw's script.
It's stupid because it causes the rest of the plot to not even make sense.

The Combine are supposed to be powerful, sure. They're powerful enough that they can crush Earth's forces with only a fraction of their own.

But anyone who thinks a dyson sphere makes sense for a civilisation that invades early civlisations really doesn't appreciate how big a star is.

A civilisation with a dyson sphere totally overshoots "powerful enough to easily defeat Earth" and is instead "too powerful to even care about Earth".

The relationship between the Combine and Humans shouldn't be like one between gods and humans, it should be like one between the US and the small countries it invades. Sure, the US is safe because of how much more powerful it is, but it's not so much more powerful that it can just ignore everything else.

Adrian Shephard escaping from 6-dimensional space prison, or dreaming of being a little girl?

They might start asking for donations before admitting the project is a bust though.

I think that's what happened with "Project Vaulderie", the supposed VtMB remake. The guy showed off a couple levels that were remade, asked for donations, then got a cease & desist letter and that was the end of it.

Why not do ultimate Jewery then?
Make a HL3 game where 20% of the work goes into HL3-specific content, and 80% of it goes into an extremely sophisticated engine.

Ride the hype train, then when you get told to stop by Valve, just change your game.
You now have your own IP that's become famous thanks to the Half Life IP.
