Gabe Newell's Mom Explains Episode 3 Delay
After waiting nearly three years for the final episode of Half-Life 2, gamers have become concerned that Valve has become too distracted with other projects like Left for Dead 2 and countless free Team Fortress 2 updates to put any serious work into the final episode of Half-Life 2, a game that was originally released over five years ago. Most concerned is Gabe's mother who has been trying to get him to buckle down and get his work done.
"Whenever I ask him about Episode 3 he always tells me it's done, but when I check his design documents I find out that he hasn't even started. He's a good kid but he's too easily distracted. I mean, there was the short-lived interest in peewee soccer, that delayed the game for a while, and then he got in a fight with little Bobby Kotick over that silly PS3 thing. If he doesn't start really focusing on his work and stop this fighting nonsense, I am afraid I will have to take away his World of Warcraft account," said Mrs. Newell with a disapproving scowl.
Gabe Newell was not available for this interview due to an emergency alphabetizing session of his Pokémon cards.
