Half-Life 3 Trademark Filing Now Bogus
Filed under: HALF-LIFE 3, VALVE


The Internet was abuzz with rumors related to Valve supposedly filing for a trademark for Half-life 3. According to the report, the filed on September 29 with the European Union's Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM).

However, the application has now been removed, albeit neither Valve nor the European Registration Office would would not comment on this. No trademarks remotely resembling Half-life were seen in the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Supposed Half-life 3 artwork had leaked over a year ago, but once again, Valve refused to comment on the matter and after all these years they are keeping fans of the popular FPS series in the dark.

Look I'm just gonna say it: Half-Life 1 was better than Half Life 2.

HL1 was like Die Hard starring a scientist versus aliens and soldiers. HL2 was a lot of wandering around and not much narrative. One of my major gripes was all the "set-piece" elements that were completely on-rails; for example - the occasional unbeatable helicopter - no amount of tactics, ammo, guile or planning could get you past these; your only choice was "...or run."

HL2 Episodes 1 & 2, however, were much tighter, and picked up a bit of the slack.

Eh. after all these years, it *could* be rose-colored memories, but...I did enjoy the *hell* out of Black Mesa...more than I did HL2. ;)

All this to say: I'm not wetting my pants over the possibility of HL3; at best, I'm "vaguely aroused".

At this point, we must accept the fact that Half Life 3 will NEVER happen.

The hype is all in our minds, ya know. Most games (Aliens:CM for example) are hyped due to the developers pumping out sweet news and junk. HL hasn't released jack shit.

Steam Machine is when it'll release.

Half-Life is the among the very first games I ever played and the one that awed me completely from the very first scene (you all know that one: Gordon Freeman going to work, traveling through various sections of Black Mesa facility... I was breathless). I really like all HL games and looking forward to HL 3. Hopefully, they will release it sooner rather than later.
