    Nvidia Shield Gets Half-Life 2 And Portal As Valve Classics Get Their Android Moment

    Nvidia’s Shield mobile gaming console has two powerful new titles under its belt today – Half-Life 2 and Portal, both from celebrated developer turned platform creator Valve, and both appearing for the first time on Android. Nvidia worked on these ports with the guidance and blessing of Valve, so they’re understandably exclusive to the graphics company’s unique… Read More

  • Homefront's Short Campaign Prompts Question: Is The Single-Player FPS A Lost Art?

    PSM3, the PlayStation magazine, has reviewed THQ’s fancy new shooter Homefront. It got a respectable 83/100. What’s perhaps worrying, however, is that the single-player campaign clocks in at a mere five hours in length. With such a short campaign, you start to ask yourself: is that even worth the developer’s time? Read More

  • Napolitano: New Security Measures May Have To Be Introduced For Subways & Trains; Ron Paul Calls For Airline Boycott

    Janet Napolitano, the head of Homeland Security, says that increased security measures may have to expand beyond the nation’s airports if we’re ever to fully protect ourselves from evildoers. Napolitano, seen here, told Charlie Rose, of PBS, that the nation’s subways and train depots may be the next target of TSA‘s efforts. Think of it: every time you hop on the A train… Read More

  • Valve Thinks They Should Make The Half-Life Movie

    In a recent interview with PC Gamer, Valve’s own Gabe Newell took some time to talk about the possibility of a Half-Life movie. Apparently after the smash success of the first game, they were inundated with crappy scripts, and directors who didn’t get what the game was about.

  • Half-Life 2 launching on Macs this Wednesday

    It’s so appropriate yet sad that Alyx is tasked with announcing the six-year old Half-Life 2’s Mac launch. But really there’s no shame in playing the some-what old Half-Life 2 even today. It’s one of the games that we agreed with in PC Gamer’s top games of all time list. But it’s yet another sign that the Mac gaming scene still has a long way to go. Read More

  • Voice actor who played Half-Life 2's Dr. Breen has passed away

    Remember the rash of celebrity deaths last year? Well this one just affected me more than all of those combined. The voice actor who played Dr. Wallace Breen, of Half-Life 2 fame, has passed away. Sad news is sad. Read More

  • Send Your Gnome Into Space Day

    I had no idea that this was even an achievement but apparently there is a garden gnome that appears at the beginning of Half-Life 2: Episode 2 that you can potentially carry throughout the game and put into the rocket at the end. To do this requires the patience of Job and a maddening predilection towards completism. Tom Francis completed the game in gnome mode and his comments and screenshots… Read More

  • Clever: Valve tried to offer job to guy who stole Half-Life 2 source code

    Ha! Remember when the Half-Life 2 source code was stolen a few years ago, showing up all over BitTorrent, IRC and the like? It turns out that Valve, once it was able to determine who was responsible (with the help of the FBI), a German fellow by the name of Axel Gembe, attempted to offer him a job! The company offered him the job in order to lure him to the U.S. so he could be arrested. Read More
