Here's Your Weekly Instalment Of Half-Life 3 Trolling

Don't get your hopes up, but there's a website on the internet with a giant Half-Life 3 logo on it that's been doing the rounds today, tugging rudely on people's heartstrings.

It's slick, it goes to the trouble of adding copyright notices and the essential "small logos" that lend credibility to the site, but come on. This is not how video games are revealed.

Well, it might be, but come on. The website's URL is, with Black Aperture being the name of a blogging theme for video games. And it's registered not to Valve, but some dude called David Hassen.

Why, then, do I point this out? For two reasons. One, that HL3 logo would make one hell of a wallpaper (so I've resized it accordingly). And two, when you crank the brightness up on the thing, you get a little Valve-related surprise that's a cute touch from whichever troll put this thing together.

    Doesn't help the fact that the logo doesn't match the Valve employee's t-shirts.

    Valves was the big 3 in the middle with the small lambada logo in the top-right.

      True that.

    Oh Gawd, i'm an addict craving at every little sniff i can get... of halflife ofcourse

    Why do I imagine some labyrinthine conspiracy of dummy sites, red herrings, fake names and companies attended to in secret by Newell et el? Intriguing...

    Gabe's fat.

    Valve have been tolling too. The valve discounts they're giving out as prizes at the moment are only valid until the 2nd of Jan. So what happens on the 3rd?

      Well, the sale ends... but year I know what you mean.

      I don't know about yours, but my coupons definitely ACTIVATE on the 2nd.

    Odd that nothing new has been said anywhere of what the Aperture-Science site is doing today. Snowing Lamda? I'd find that worth a mention.

    Dammit, make that the Black-Aperture site, not the Aperture-Science web page.
