Half Life 3 and trolling go hand in hand now. It is a mirage we have been chasing for over a decade with no sign of hope. So it is only natural to see people running toward anything that reads “Half Life 3.”
The same happened at Gamescom.
Spotted by Eurogamer, there is a massive Half Life: 3 poster at Gamescom; right next to Titanfall 2 and other games. It gives the impression of a coming reveal but that is not the case at all.
The image you see above is a tricky one and trolls Half Life 3 fans. It is a brutal but brilliant prank! You see Half Life 3 but is actually reads “Half Life: 3.” The difference? Well, that becomes clear when you read the entire thing.
“Half-Life: 3 editors who played it back then.”
That just means that 3 editors played Half Life and that is it. The poster is by spieletipps and GIGA games. So at least we know who curse and impale on a stake.
