A long running gag in the slightly annoying online gaming community involves the mindless speculation about Half-Life 3’s release. It’s mostly nonsensical to those who haven’t played the previous games, but the humourous guesses usually sounds something like:
“Gabe Newell just ordered a Whopper, medium fries, and a Coke from Burger King. 3 items… Half-Life 3 confirmed!”
It’s stupid, I know, but it’s the type of stupid inside joke gamers appreciate.
Well, while guest lecturing at UT Austin, the big Grizzly Bear of a man decided to indulge the horde of diehard fans surrounding him with a nod towards the holiest of all holy 3’s.

So… it’s confirmed, right? In all seriousness, it was pretty cool of Gaben to relax with us normal folks (which he’s known to do from time to time), but I wish he’d stop playing with our hearts.
Just give us what we want!
