    Source 2 presentation leak, probably Left 4 Dead 3

    This NeoGAF poster's leaks are almost always confirmed since 2005.
    Check this thread.



    Well that's about it. Maybe he'll post more later lol.

    Does that necessarily mean L4D3? It looks like they just used an L4D2 map as a reference, likely because it was one of Valve's more recent developmenty deals and they still have the highest detail reference footage. And using City 17 wouldn't let them show off plants and shit.

    ...also any content that looked even remotely like Half-life would cause the internet to explode.

    Quite pretty engine.

    Dammit, I was going to post that prior connection but went for dinner first! I wanted to look like the smarty pants! Grrrrrr.

    I mean I'm not at all surprised, apart from the obvious jokes of counting to 3. I also love one of the tags for this thread is "edward snowden".

    Heh, fair enough. I tend to tune those out. Because of course they are working on that, just like they are working on Half-Life 3. But it is Valve, we'll never see a completed version as they spend WAY too much time iterating on things.

    A zombie sequel, shocking. Truly Valve are the saviours of games.

    This one will be set on an island and you have to battle other survivors for supplies. Unfortunately due to the lame power of the source engine, the island will only be a few hundred feet across. On the positives you'll be able to customise your appearance with all these wacky doohickeys we'll be selling.

    It might just beceause the L4D team was originally not from Valve, and made L4D2 specifically as an experiment to see if they could produce an high quality game within a certain timeframe. I have a pet theory that the L4D-Original guys are the only ones that ensure that Valve actually releases any games :P.

    The shot looks... actually I thought it was just some relatively rough concept art rather than an example of what the real-time rendering engine can do. Not sure how to feel about that. Some things look nice but I don't know... perhaps I just don't like the art, but it doesn't look like the best thing to show off the engine IMO.

    Hopefully they've learned their lesson from Source and have scrapped their ridiculous content pipeline in favour of something halfway sane. Source was a joke when it came to getting content into the engine.

    Source's pipeline was absolute misery.

    Luckily the people at Valve have all used UDK and Unity by now and won't make it a nightmare again.

    Unless they're really stupid. (they're not)

    It's from 2011. It looks very close to the original concept art.
    In other news, CBOAT's identity was exposed. At least he went out in a blaze of glory, posting one more image...


    ... and confirming that this is real:

    Ah, what the hell sort of language is CBOAT actually using? Is he an alien?

    Can't be quoted by journalists and makes it impossible to figure out his identity based on writing patterns.

    Do you have a link to a story on his identity being exposed and the like?

    Huh! That makes a huge amount of sense, actually.

    You can find a slightly wrong and extremely biased story on the misterxmedia livejournal.

    Or you can read my version of the events:
    - CBOAT fucked up by uploading the initial imgur screenshot from his dropbox
    - some guy on NeoGAF discovered the link between the two
    - the dropbox belongs to another NeoGAF user, a German indie dev
    - mods delete the incriminating posts
    - the German guy panics, nukes his dropbox and edits old posts containing links to it
    - idiots like misterxmedia ("insider" with pro-Microsoft stance), Kevin Dent, /r/XboxOne and Opa-Ages (NeoGAF splinter consisting mainly of bitter, banned users) put a spin on this: they claim the German guy is a NeoGAF moderator, he has links to Valve and that Valve may have a hand in the anti-Xbone movement. Xbox fanatics HATE NeoGAF because of what they believe to be a pro-Sony stance. CBOAT posted mostly Microsoft stuff for years there, and he was almost always right, but these guys claim he's a fraud. 2013 was an especially good year for CBOAT. His leaks were very damaging to the Xbone brand, and so he attracted a ton of hate.

    Left 4 Dead 2 don't interest me. I like the original characters, and the '2 ones are boring to me. On top of that theres something wrong on the game balance and weapons, I can't put the finger on it. Everything else is probably better.
