So if any of you guys accessed the Steam store during April Fools yesteryday, you probably saw this:

Those of you with LED monitors may already see the Aperture Science logo inside the circle surrounding the lamdba. Otherwise you will have to try tilting your monitor up and down to get a faint outline of it.

After lowering the contrast in Photoshop, this is what I got:

These results are easily replicable if you just google search for the April Fool's Half-Life 3 logo. The one I chose was the first result on Google for "half life 3 steam april fools" with "Large" filter.

What does this mean? I have no clue. Maybe Valve's trying to troll us again. I just figured I'd bring it up since no one else seems to have noticed.

Don't see anything. :/ If it does exist like you say it does, it might be a clue that we might get Portal 3 before HL3.

I see it. Have to tilt my monitor up but yeah, it's there.

If we get more Portal before Half Life then... I wouldn't be surprised :P

That wasn't the actual Steam site. It was just a carefully made duplicate. See for yourself and compare to the actual site. I doubt it's indicative of anything. Just someone messing around.

Exactly. If this is real, it doesn't mean much - we already know that the next Half-Life game is going to be at least partly set on Aperture's research vessel. They said as much in HL2 Episode 2.

Wow, that's a very good double of it.

Anyway whenever it does release I think we will have a portal/ HL crossover kind of thing where they mention each other in their stories
