Half-Life 3 confirmed in new Farming Simulator screenshots [not really]

You can bet the farm that I'm going to make hay while the sun shines (waka waka) with these four new Farming Simulator screenshots. Farming Simulator launches on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next week, and, apparently, Team Red has got some tractors, some cows, and some combines to throw at the grassroots competition. The crops can't even handle me right now!

Actually, I just realized something: There's a mission in Half-Life 2: Episode 2 where Gordon and Alex investigate a farm, and if you equate the combine machines in these screenshots with the Combine in the Half-Life series, then count how many combines are in these new screens (there are three), then that can only mean one thing: Half-Life 3 confirmed! Your welcome, Internet.
