A game this big needs a MASSIVE Advertisement Campaign!

Be as ridiculous, epic and awesome as you want!

Example:

"HALF-LIFE 2: Episode 3, So Epic you need 3 eyes to play"

LOL. This could work very well for Valve. Cut out the costs, let the community advertise the game for them! :p

Although, I suppose that's what they did with Portal 2. Valve is a step ahead of me.



- Half-Life 2: Episode 3 -

"We don't have anything to say about Episode 3."

There's your catch phrase.

Exactly! The game doesn't get around by being released alone...mostly.

The catchphrase actually works because ITS THAT AWESOME!!

Even so you don't notice it they do it from time to time. Remember the voting for greatest developer? If there was really anyone who didn't know about valve on that forum now they know about this fine develop and even that browser game folk might now check out the real games.;)

That they update games also help. I remember a magazine testing Team Fortress again because they had all the updates. They always find a way to get into gaming news and with all the games like portal, l4d and tf2 not to mention all the cs kids they have a huge fan base. Now let them announce something over steam and you have many customers getting that new game you are selling.

Rule 2 of EP:3, We do not talk about EP:3
Rule 3 of EP:3, We do not talk about EP:3
Rule 4 of EP:3, If its your first play, you have to play the series first.

Would that be *if* the world ended? Or if it didn't? ;)

(If it did, there would be a really very short time to celebrate it's epicness.)
