Dan Roemer's personal top 10 games of 2020

2020 royally sucked ass for many people and for a lot of obvious reasons. Quality escapism has never been more important to me than it has been this past year. Simply taking my mind off things through video games is a luxury and I'm more th...

Destructoid's award for Best PC Game of 2020 goes to...

This year was mostly bad for everyone -- and that's a thing that's usually said very hyperbolically because a couple celebrities died or whatever, but in 2020 it feels appropriate for once -- but it wasn't without its silver linings. We got...

Half-Life: Alyx's firewater sloshes around real nice now

Half-Life: Alyx is full of a million tiny little touches that make it a splendidly neat VR game. You can wear a bucket on your head and it protects you from Barnacles. There's a fully-functioning piano in a hotel lobby. It's all a bunc...

Arkane's canceled Half-Life game didn't star Gordon Freeman

It's been long known that Valve contracted Arkane Studios in the mid-'00s to make a new Half-Life game. However, little was actually known about that project except that it was set in Ravenholm and that Valve canceled production befor...

Review: Half-Life: Alyx

Every so often we tackle dual reviews, where two authors share their takes on a game and provide a single combined score. What better game to bring that concept back than Half-Life: Alyx, the first new Half-Life game in ages. Gath...

Half-Life: Alyx but for hoarders

This 16-second video completely speaks for itself. This is the sort of innovative spirit and can-do attitude that'll get us through these lean times. This is literal inventory management in a medium that has tried to eliminate any actions ...

Half-Life: Alyx's first update mostly just improves turning

It's easy to think of an update that's turning-oriented as boring or insubstantial. But, in virtual reality, the locomotion of your character (and, hopefully, how it keeps you from feeling sick) is super important. That's the main focus of ...

After 15 years of hard work, Black Mesa is finally out

Friends, Romans, countrymen, I never thought I'd live to see the day. The day when what started as a small fan project to update the classic shooter Half-Life into the (at-the-time) revolutionary Source engine would actually come to fruiti...

After all these years, the next chapter in Valve's unshakable sci-fi saga is nearly upon us. Half-Life: Alyx will release on March 23, 2020, with support for the Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift headsets. "Pre-order bonuses for anyone...

Half-Life: Alyx is about the size of Half-Life 2

It's tough to know what to expect from Half-Life: Alyx. It's Valve's first Half-Life game in well over a decade, it's only available in a virtual reality format, and it's the first time Gordon Freeman isn't the protagonist. You couldn'...
