So looking at all the glorious E3 footage I’m just not suckered in to believe that we’re getting another dosage of Left 4 Dead, something doesn’t sit right with me about it.
Think about what Valve have done; Half Life, Half Life 2, Day of Defeat Source, Counterstrike Source, Portal, Team Fortress 2, Episodic content – Valve do one thing well, they push the bar to a new limit. They try new things, they go for new styles and genres.
To me, it seems a little too gimmicky for Valve’s liking – others, right now, are against me on this stating that E3 is no place to pull marketing stunts, but Valve have always been a little ‘different’ haven’t they? Even the box-art is a blatant ‘up yours’ from Valve, so I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that Valve will throw a nice ‘Gotcha!’ our way and possibly unveil some news of Episode 3, if not then there’s a lot of disgruntled fans waiting to boycott whatever cheap spin-off they may try to peddle us.
