Dear Valve, Please Work on Episode 3

Too busy starring in "House?"
Looks like Portal 2 is good to go. That’s good news. Two Left 4 Deads have come and gone. Cool. Steam is making money hand over fist.

So, Valve, where the hell is Half-Life 2: Episode 3?

I don’t want to go all stalker fanboy here, but it has been 1237 days since you released Episode 2

In a recent interview with AusGamers, Valve’s Doug Lombardi said:
We haven’t ever flipped the bit and said “well let’s just make fancier versions of Half-life for the rest of our lives and collect all the money”. We’ve actually done the opposite, sometimes to our fan’s chagrin.
Yeah. My chagrin.

Look, three and a half years have gone by. No one is going to accuse you of making a cash grab by rushing shoddy DLC to market. I’m starting to think you don’t understand the concept of “episodic content.” And you totally left the story hanging!

Lombardi also said:
You will ever see it, yes. We are not done with Gordon Freeman’s adventures. I have nothing other than that to tell you today, but hang in there with us.
That’ll have to do. Now what can you do about getting Deadwood back on the air?
