Half Life 2: Episode 3 found in the Alien Swarm SDK!

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1471205/epis...fstickzero.JPG

Check this out for yourself guys, open the Alien Swarm SDK, place an info_node_hint and check the hint options.

What on earth is a Blob Brain? Or an Aperture Nest?

I don't know whether this proves Episode 3 or not, but I believe it's definitely evidence they're working on it!

I'll excuse the bombastic topic title due to the fact that you may have actually found something.

Blob Brain doesn't sound very Half-Lifey to me! Good find though.

I haven't played Alien Swarm, but a blob brain is a toy. I'm not sure how it relates to be honest. Is there an alien that looks like it maybe?

I have my doubts it means anything Ep3 related. Lets hope I'm wrong.

They said it was going to contain extras to other games. It was inevitable to find something related to what's in development, even if we couldn't tell it at the time.

Turns out that Half-Life 2: Episode 3 is crossing over to the universe of The Blob.

you know, blob brain could just be an intentionally miss-named adviser. as for Aperture nest, I get a feeling its gonna be either some variant of antlions, or a 'nest' of sentries.

the 'big' in this, I think, is that yes, they're working on ep. 3, and they're to a point of adding objects to the game, which gives you an idea of how much is or isn't completed. I'm thinking they have the story written, dialogue partially recorded, some finished and un-finished maps, and they're adding new stuff, experimenting with gameplay, and figuring out what to change, before they polish it up...

Based on the level of development this implies, I'm thinking valve will 'announce' episode 3, shortly before portal 2 comes out, and then after accounting for valve-time, that it will *probably* be out some time 3rd quarter 2012... of course they'll probably announce something like Q4 2011, or Q1 2012...


Please, use those instances in a map and load it up in GMod or something, I wanna see what they are (I'm pretty sure I don't meet the requirements for alien swarm, or I'd do it myself)
