Valve files trademark for... [Update: And Logo]

Wait....they only just registered that trademark? That makes no sense whatsoever. Even if they've only just started work on it, wouldn't they have wanted to have trademarked the name long ago?

Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge, we make promise only; pain we obey.
Not to rain on the parade but DotA3 will launch before Half-Life 3.

Well....it's just a trademark?
It's the first time they acknowledge Half Life 3 though. Their only previous continuation of Episode 2 was Episode 3, pretty much.

I think the most important question is: Why now? During the hype for SteamOS and the controller. GabeN pls :(. But I bet he reads Neogaf daily, watching us squirm while he polishes his knife collection. (When waiting in the DotA2 lobby of course)
