Hints at Valve's Source 2 engine found in Filmmaker code

Deep in the code of Valve's Source Filmmaker software, references to what may be the company's next-generation game engine are made. The folks at Valvetime spotted multiple references to something called the "Source...

Review: Revelations 2012  photo
Review: Revelations 2012
by Jim Sterling

Revelations 2012 first came to my attention when a random Twitter pal recommended it, presumably under the impression that I would find something to love in the same way I regularly watch Alien Resurrection and enjoy every shameful second. The trouble is, Alien Resurrection is so bad it's good, and even offers a number of genuinely entertaining moments. 

Revelations 2012, on the other hand, just makes me angry. Angry to think that this is the kind of trash that gets approved for Steam while other, more deserving games are denied. Angry to think that a shoddily produced mod can charge $9.99 for a download.

Mostly, however, I am angry at myself. Because I am stupid enough to volunteer to review it.

Review: Nuclear Dawn photo
Review: Nuclear Dawn
by Allistair Pinsof

I’d say I’m not biased one way or another, but I’d be lying: I had to delete Team Fortress 2 from my hard drive in order to make room for Nuclear Dawn. It’s a fitting trade-off, since they are both team-based first-person shooters that put an emphasis on strategy. Though, that would be selling Nuclear Dawn short -- not that developer InterWave Studios haven’t already done that by attaching such a generic name to its retail debut.

Team Fortress 2 often feels like a Tower Defense Game: You set up turrets, get in position, and keep the opposing team from reaching your base. Nuclear Dawn, on the hand, is based on the foundations of a Real-Time Strategy game. A single commander decides the fate of an entire team by strategically placing turrets and other structures on a large, open map. It’s an ambitious concept. Although a few others before Nuclear Dawn have attempted an RTS-FPS hybrid, InterWave have revitalized the format of team-based gaming without sacrificing the smooth controls and gun-play players demand in a post-Modern Warfare world.

E.Y.E has a silly name, but looks pretty good!

StreumOnStudio’s Source-driven shooter E.Y.E may have a ludicrous name, but this cyberpunk-flavored shooter with roleplaying features might be a surprising little indie hit. We have two new trailers for the game (yanke...

Indie-developer FPS/RPG E.Y.E. is something to watch

French indie developer Streum on Studio is still working on E.Y.E., an FPS/RPG hybrid built with the innards of the Source engine. A little bit Deus Ex with a splash of System Shock and perhaps even F.E.A.R., the title aims t...

Indie Nation: Polaris

Half-Life 2's Source engine may well be one of the most reliably satisfying pieces of technology in the modern gaming world. It gave us gravity guns, zombie hordes, portal physics -- and now, of all things, a stargazing simul...
