Half-Life 3 is just the code name for Ricochet 2, guys. Don't get too excited ;)

Horrible thought: maybe the trademark had lapsed (or was about to lapse) and they just had to renew it. And there's no game being worked on.

i heard that if you file for a trademark, you have a use it or lose it clause. Maybe that means valve is finally ready to make an announcement.

I found it during my regular (I do this like 14 times a week) browsing of new trademark filings. Told Shinobi about as I didn't wanna make a thread myself and have the servers crash (which they haven't yet luckily).
