Portal 2 will be at E3, Valve continues to troll our asses

Valve has continued its trend of ARG-style announcements by revealing that Portal 2 will be shown at E3 with a GLaDOS-themed blue screen of death:

A poster in the Penny Arcade forums translated the error code from HEX, revealing the phrase "SUSPEND UNTIL EEE."

Valve has officially driven us to insane-conspiracy-theorist status.

In an even sillier, and completely unconfirmed bit of news, Reddit pointed out that the cover of a Saxton Hale comic (a character who often appears in Team Fortress 2 promotional material) seems to contain a hidden Half-Life 3 (or Episode 3) hit:

Yeah, it's pretty weak, but Valve's cryptic reveals are messing with our heads... making us see hidden messages where there are none. I spent the entire commute to work this morning trying to figure out if the license plate on the car in front of me secretly revealed a new Source engine. Turns out it was just a meaningless string of letters and numbers.

    if that comic thing is true, I'll just give up. Valve has taken this way too far this time, we know there is going to be a half life 2 episode 3 and portal 2 anyway so why bother with this?

    If that comic reveal turns out to be legit, I will be checking myself into the nearest asylum, due to having no proper perception of reality or truth.

    I love Valve, and I love GamesRadar, good mixture, interesting article, I'd love to play Portal, but I WANT Half-Life, but... I've already waited a while, so, I can wait some more, as long as they keep releasing good games.
