um anyone here?

If you normally take Half Life Episode 3 rumours with a pinch of sale may I recommend ordering a truck load for this one as I just don’t believe it.

But according to OXM an anonymous source has told them that while Half Life Episode 3 started development as a linear shooter, just like the other episodes, the game then morphed more into a puzzle solving exploration title.

Which is still believable and relevant but apparently it has now morphed into an open world RPG styled shooter, much like Borderlands I guess, which is something I just don’t see Valve doing as their bread and butter is the linear shooter model.

So what do you think, is this a far fetched rumour or would Valve really try something like this?

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
