After getting a taste of fanboy tears last week when telling the world they had three huge announcements to make and then not announcing Half-Life 3, Valve has decided it likes the taste of those tears. So it's come out that they filed a trademark for Half-Life 3 on September 26th and considering that the game is rumored to be on the way ever other month with the littlest of actual proof to back it up, this was too much for fans.
Does this mean Half-Life 3 is on the way? About as much as it meant a DLC for Skyrim dealing with Redguard was on the way earlier this year. Although it would make a good bit of sense for Valve to back up the launch of their new gaming platform with a, possibly exclusive, big title like Half-Life 3, fans may be all out of hope. But, just as the tears of last-week's non-HL3 announcement dry up, will such a huge sign get them flowing again? Or have fans become so jaded they they will believe every move about the game from here on out is Valve trolling them? At this point, some may not even believe the game exists as they play.
