One Year Left
#1 Posted 19 July 2015 - 02:02 PM
I got an alert a few days ago, that there is 1 more year of life left before our domain expires, and I just wanted to know, is it worth it? Should we move on, or stay firm until HL3 arrives? Keep the site going just because of the memories? Its old, outdated, nobody visits anymore... etc, etc, etc.
Whats your take on it?

domain name is cheap 10 bucks,
server is ~$160 per year from what i remember, it included the server, speed upgrades and other packages

We outlasted halflife.net for fuck sakes. We're like the only Half-Life fan website left.
AND WE SHALL NOT PARISH!
hell why don't we try to revamp the website into a more STEAM/PC gaming oriented site. We have a better chance of doing that and getting more visitors then HL3 coming out...god damn assholes at Valve would rather work on Left4Dead 3 and Portal yay gravity puzzle 3,Counter-Striking your wallet with "missions" and 1337 gun skinz, Team Fortress 2 of yeah we're still updating and working on this cash cow; go buy a hat, and DoTA we bought another MOD from a different game to cash in on.
VALVE isn't even trying to cock-tease us with info on HL3 or a new graphics engine AT ALL.It's like the company has turned into a giant collective shit storm of a ton of random projects and random teams doing whatever the fuck they want rather then you know everyone working on 1-2 collective project(s). If it wasn't for the gold mine that is STEAM I doubt Valve would even be around. Think about it, when was the last time Valve released new ORIGINAL game, not a sequel or something built out of an existing game, but an Original new IP. I think Left 4 Dead was the last one, and it came out in 2008. 7 freaking years bros and brosefs, SEVEN. The name George Costanza wants to give his kid...7.
I've really started to dislike Valve over all of this to be honest. It's like they're starting to turn into the next big bullshit gaming publishing company, Valve just makes money on people and companies selling their shit on STEAM. It's like the guys at KickStarter, they're doing jack shit and are getting paid. Well maybe not like KickStarter since they have to maintain servers and what have you, but kinda on the same idea.
