The Matrix meets the Source Filmmaker

This is what I've been waiting for. Ever since the Source Filmmaker was announced, I've been anticipating some top quality animations. The initial stuff has been great, but you need time to learn the inner workings of such a...

Free Left 4 Dead crossover DLC released for PAYDAY on PC photo
Free Left 4 Dead crossover DLC released for PAYDAY on PC
by Jordan Devore

That collaborative Mercy Hospital Heist for PAYDAY: The Heist is now available for free on Steam. The original reveal for this content was rather unexpected, but I've since grown to like it, conceptually. The fact that it doesn't cost anything to play certainly helps.

In addition to this mission, Overkill Software has added a new zombie theme and, for those of you with Left 4 Dead or Left 4 Dead 2 installed, wearable in-game zombie masks. This content is all wrapped together nicely in an update for PAYDAY, so you won't even have to seek out a download link.

A future patch will add further challenges and Steam Achievements, according to Overkill.

Valve: if Steam sales killed games, we wouldn't do them

Valve has defended its policy of offering insane discounts during Steam sales, responding to Electronic Arts' hypocritical accusation that such discounts cheapen intellectual property. Business development boss Jason Hol...

WOAH! Left 4 Dead running on a PlayStation Vita

Through magic, hacking, and ungodly trickery you can see Valve's Left 4 Dead running on a PS Vita. Well, kinda. One YouTube user, digitalarts001, has tweaked the PlayStation Suite to let him control Left 4 Dead running a PC ...

Payday: The Heist crossing over with Left 4 Dead

It's almost impossible to describe Payday: The Heist without bringing up Left 4 Dead. The crime caper is undeniably similar to Valve's zombie adventure, based as it is on four-player first-person co-op, providing challenging ...

After Steam's fairly recent launch on Mac systems, it did seem obvious that it would only be a matter of time before the platform would find its way onto Linux. Recently, Linux blogger Michael Larabel has been over to Va...

Left 4 Dead: Impulse 76 fan film f*cked up a good thing

HAWP: Papa Burch in drag

All Ashly wanted to do was have a family fun night, but Anthony had to be a prissy little b*tch. Look at Papa Burch! He's totally a team player, not to mention "sassy and fierce." Oh, Papa Burch... Heads up: beware the Tank! HAWP: Left 4 Dead: The Sacrifice [GameTrailers]

The Jimquisition: BOYCOTT!

This week, I look at the recent running joke that has become the videogame boycott. I look at why it's joke, why some boycotts are stupid, and why we shouldn't treat the concept with automatic disdain because of the bad ones.  It took me entirely far too long to draw the ludicrous pictures that accompany this week's video.
