    Maybe that's because nothing has been announced yet.

    There have been no announcements of Episode 3 at all. All that is known is that it takes place in snowier environments and there's some hinting (unofficial I think) that Gordon gets the portal gun.

    That would make sense, as Portal was created to take place within the half life world.... and Episode 2 does make some references to it.

    The possibilities could make or break the game.

    I have faith in valve, loved all the half life games thus far.

    Yep :) they set the standards for how an FPS game should be.

    i'm excited for the aperture science connection with the borealis.

    how well does it work with crossover? i'm using it through boot camp and it runs amazingly!

    I run Half-Life 2 and Portal natively in OS X, and they're certainly okay. Half-Life 2 runs just as well as when I played it in Boot Camp, and Portal's a little messed up, but it's smooth as peas.

    I played Half Life 2 via Crossover and Boot Camp.

    Of course, Boot Camp gives you full speed... but as Half Life 2 isn't the most demanding game nowadays, running it through Crossover gaming does very very well.
    I did the video stress test of Counter Strike, and IIRC the FPS were about 75% of what you'll get using the same hardware via Boot Camp, so not bad at all! Easily playable running at full res, highest settings. (this was done on a Mac Pro '08, GeForce 8800 GT)

    Gordan with the portal gun would be awesome, but they'd have to restrict it somehow, otherwise things would get a little easy.
