List of possible Half-Life 3 hints

  1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Whiteboards
    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive whiteboards weren't supposed to be there. We were supposed to see them when cs_office releases. And they didn't release it yet.
    UPDATE: They changed 2 of the whiteboards. But one is still same. Half-Life one is still there.

  2. DOTA 2 Files
    In Dota 2 leak, there was a matchmaking file for "ep3".
    Note: (Weaponizer isn't about Half-Life. Portal 2's scrapped paint gun uses weaponizer sounds. I think its another thing.)

  3. Zombie Aperture?
    File named "npc_sounds_zombie_aperture.txt" in Portal 2 files.

  4. Androids
    File named "npc_sounds_android.txt" in Portal 2 files.FALSE ALERT. IT'S THE SCRAPPED ANDROID NAMED BETTY.

  5. Alien Swarm SDK Files
    The files got removed from SDK short after people noticed them.

  6. Skyrim Hint
    Space core weight was 3.1
    And Valve appeared on E3 list on that date.
    (Thanks Master Cat!)

  7. Portal 2 Animation Files
    Yep. This was the thing I was talking about. Those files were in Portal 2. They are new. They are not in Episode 2. Episode 2 Magnusson VCD's start with "mag_" but the new ones in Portal 2 starts with "magnuss_". The animations are probably from Episode 3/Half-Life 3
    (Thanks dasfreeman95 for recording the video.)

  8. Source 2

    Ctrl+F and search Shave.

So you've made your finding public now. Has Valve ever responded to your mail anyway?

Interesting findings. It's only a matter of time. Don't you think this is all just one big ARG?

Well, you finally made them public. I've got to say, I'm impressed with #3 and #5. The other were already known (at least for me).

See? You're not getting called a troll. And #5 is indeed really interesting.

Aperture Zombies? That got me excited. Who knows for sure?

Must be. Valve is smart enough to remove those from games before they publish them.

Sorry, that was me.



However, it's indeed interesting that this got slipped.

Ded- Nice one! Iv'e seen only 2 of the hints here, its good you have put up this so finally when people get "Evidence" about HL3 they can cross link it so they won't be regurgitating old news. You should update this when more easter eggs/hints are found, just make sure they are genuine , we don't need another T-Shirt hoax.

I would say there is certainly a mistake in thinking they are "hints" to something or going to end up with an ARG.

Everything is however very interesting, and one can only hope that a lot of our theories and insanity as of late isn't simply that.
