  1. Since Obama didn't have a majority for the last 6 years, a lot of policies are based on executive orders. Something Trump can undo without effort. It must really hurt to see your legacy be destroyed like that. Not all of it of course, but most of it will go and rather quickly I might add.
  2. Check out the lady on the right. You can see her struggle trying to make sense of it and then basically giving up.
  3. Let's illustrate that point:
  4. Edited based on feedback.
  5. It has to be a version of Source due to all the stuff you need. It could álso be done on modified Black Mesa Source engine. Half-Life 2 modding is still alive and well. Maps and mods are frequently released and played. Plus, Half-Life 2 is owned by almost everyone and it still has a huge following. With the quality we have here, combined with Source/Black Mesa and the Half-Life name, I can't imagine that it wouldn't be able to find an audience.
  6. No, it wouldn't @FMPONE and those are good ideas @Vaya. Since private messages, different threads and what not are causing a lot of fragmentation, I'm going to keep it simple. I've searched for what Half-Life 2: Episode 3 would entail (for so far things leaked and were hinted at). I've also asked several pro's for advise and assistance. I'm going to facilitate the opportunity for this community to form a mod team and create an unofficial Episode 3. Whether this idea blossoms or withers and dies is up to you. Everyone who's serious, committed and highly motivated can send me a private message with their motivation, skill set and credentials. That doesn't mean that others can't use this thread to find each other and create projects of their own, like @General Vivi asking for help with his VR-project. I'm just ending the endless back and forth of 20 captains trying to steer the ship. Now, let me repeat what I said in the opening post of this thread:
  7. We are continuing to use Source 2 as our primary game development environment. Aside from moving Dota 2 to the engine recently, we are are using it as the foundation of some unannounced products. We would like to have everyone working on games here at Valve to eventually be using the same engine. We also intend to continue to make the Source 2 engine work available to the broad developer community as we go, and to make it available free of charge.
  8. Excellent choice, let me continue the trend (easy one, I know)
  9. Congratz man! Does this also mean that @General Vivi is single again?
  10. Isn't that the old guy from The Conjuring 2?
  11. Until you find the right one
