Fallout 4 trademark a fake, along with Shenmue 3 and Half-Life 3 filings

Bad news I’m afraid, friends; that Fallout 4 trademark application filed in Europe has been rejected on grounds of being a fakey mcfake-fake, along with a couple of others which should raise warning flags as soon as you look at them – Shenmue 3 (never going to happen) and Half-Life 3 (may not ever happen).

What makes this all so very grieving is we got a bit excited about this one because of its proximity to next month’s Spike VGX, which is sure to show off some new, in-development titles, and to the appearance of a teaser site, which you’ll note we did mention at the time looked pretty dodgy.

In short: the whole flurry of excitement appears to have been in vain. Bethesda is working on something, and has been since Skyrim wrapped, but we’re no closer to knowing what that really is.

Made me laugh… One of those laughs where it suddenly dawns on you that the cops can see the bag full of human heads you’re carrying. Somewhere between getting the joke, misery and a black understanding of the inevitable that carries a sense of freedom.

 

told you guys

 

please be doom 4

Half Life 3 may not ever happen? It is 100% happening…

 

Welp! I’ll be in the disappointment room for the next few days. Ring the bell if you need me.

oops double thanks to posting from phone

Your sentence has 7 words. 7 minus 4 from ‘Fallout 4′ equals 3. Half-Life 3 Confirmed!

 

Half-Life 3 has actually been confirmed lol. They just won’t tell anyone what it’s going to be like. I’ve heard a few interviews where Gabe admits they are working on it but won’t bother telling people why it’s taking so long. Assume VR has a lot to do with it.

 

Gabe saying they are working on HL3 doesn’t mean HL3 is confirmed btw. Like many games it could easily be scrapped. But valve took something like 7 years to make TF2 so it could very well be on it’s way we’ll just never know.

Is that really a thing that people used to “confirm” half life 3? If so, doesn’t that make their minds completely bent?

Don’t know if we’ll ever see HL3 or not. And given that I remember holding out hope for HL2 Ep3, I now really don’t care, it’s too late either way. :(

 

redshirt,

It’s a running joke. People are so desperate for HL3 and Valve has been so tight lipped over it for so long that people use any random thing as confirmation for HL3.

 

exe3,

Oh. Well in that case, the stars are “right” now, so therefore Cthulhu will arise to devour the earth, and Half Life 3 is confirmed! Good news and bad.

The Deep Ones worshiped Cthulhu, Mother Hydra and Father Dagon. That’s 3 Gods, HL3 confirmed.

See? You can do it with anything… Go ahead, give it a whirl.

3 names quoted. Half-Life 3 confirmed.

 

Who made Rage? didnt they say a second was coming? But i think it’s “their” next MMO as every one is doing it now :/

 

Just noticed the teaser site shut down this morning. No surprise there.

I stand corrected it’s just not working on mobile
