Valve begins hyping something (HALF-LIFE 3 CONFIRMED OMG)

This past Saturday, Valve released a video featuring Portal 2 antagonist Wheatley. Unsurprisingly, the Internet descended upon it with icepicks and magnifying glasses, ready to take it apart and examine every frame for clues about Half-Life 3

Shortly after the video aired, 4Chan wrote a polite joint letter to Gabe Newell, who responded with, "I don’t suppose it would ease your wrath if I told you we’re announcing all of your favourite things at E3 2012?" He later clarified that the reveal would involve "something with a 'three' in it."

As if that wasn't enough, Valve's "Doug Rattman" Twitter account suddenly returned from obscurity to say, "It begins." He then began Tweeting odd codes such as, "ЯK - 63.4 | 37.5 | 20.5 | 47.4 | 13.1 | 12.5 | 27.6 | 72.4 | 54.3 | 70.3 | 34.6 | 15.1 | 60.2 | 21.0 | 38.5 |," before disappearing again. 

Ladies and gentlemen, the Valve Troll Wagon has officially rolled into town again. Let's get excited/confused!
