Half-Life Fans Trolled By Keyboard Company

Illustration for article titled Half-Life Fans Trolled By Keyboard Company

Mad Catz revealed yesterday the company's latest, fanciest keyboard to date: the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7. It's... certainly something, but that's not why we're here today. Today, we're here for shits and giggles.


A trailer put out by Mad Catz for the upcoming peripheral shows its weird little app screen with predictable stuff like World of Warcraft and PhotoShop. But what's that lurking at the 0:22 mark? Is that a Half-Life 3 logo?

Oh Mad Catz. So trollish. And also so very, very wrong. By the time Half-Life 3 comes out, we—and I mean humanity, not just you and I, dear reader—won't be using keyboards. We'll be beams of light, transmitting pure emotions across infinite universes. Even the ones full of giant babies with holes in their heads.

Trolled? More like ingenious marketing. Never would have known about this keyboard unless it was for this story.
