Theories are abound, is this a sneaky way of saying that Portal 2 or ep3 is coming soon?

Oh well all roads seem to point to Gabe saying something on the 11th of march when he accepts his award at the GDC - only time will tell =D

Yeah. This is bloody brilliant. I'm loving all this. Shame about I don't have the skills to help out...
Although its taught me a new way to broadcast. SSTV. Sending Images over radio :O
Can't wait to see what all this is leading too if I may be honest. :D

This is fantastic. I love it when Valve plays games with the community like this - the responses are astounding.

(I also was taken enough by it to google how to learn morse code. But, y'know. Too much effort.)
I might be wrong.

Do you reckon this is EP3 related, or just a general update to Portal to try and "revive" the amount of players?

Basically no-one /knows/ what this is to signify, what we can say for definite is that it isn't just a general update for Portal

Hints go towards something in the HL universe hopefully Ep3 but maybe Portal 2

I reckon this is going to a Portal 2 thing, or something related, Specially with the ASCii stuff showing the "Are you still there?" turrets and loads of bits and bobs that are connected to Portal :)

I seriously do reckon that all this stuff is WAY to internal towards portal to be anything else outside of portal, Portal 2 maybe, or an expansion to Portal or a proper update for Portal :o

If its just that I will actually fly to Seattle and shoot the valve employees myself.

As to what FW is saying, fair enough it is likely something to do with Portal, but as we all know the Portal game is in the HL universe and it's been hinted heavily that Ep3 will be involved with Aperture labs and portal technology.

Myself, I'm hoping for a new orange box dealy, HL2:EP3, Portal 2 and a new multiplayer, maybe CS2 or Portal co-op? =D

I swear last time they asked if the community wanted CS2 or Portal 2, perhaps this is the answer :O
