Poll Question 283 – How soon after the release of Half-Life 3 will you play it?

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

So, let’s be clear, from this moment forward, and probably some time in the past, I will be calling the next game in the HL series: Half-Life 3.

I think we all agree it’s not going to be an episode any more.

Onto the poll question. My working life is a little different to what it was 20 years ago and I no longer have the opportunity to take days off when I want it – basically, I work when I am told to.

It’s called the:
OpposingForceNovemberFest.

Originally, it was going to be during October and the “OFOF” would have sounded cooler, but I just couldn’t get it ready in time.
