GabeN goes SpaceX, sends a gnome to space because he can

Gabe Newell and I have lived very different COVID-19 quarantines. I've been chained to my desk blogging about games for the 105th consecutive month. Newell went to New Zealand because it seemed nice, became so enamored that he lobbied the ...

I hate Nioh 2's Valve helmet so so so so so much

It's a busy day for Nioh news, all of it good. Scratch that. Almost all of it good. Both Nioh games are coming to PS5 with 4K and 120fps support on February 5, 2021. (That's good.) Also, Nioh 2's complete edition is launchin...

Left 4 Dead 2 is getting one last update

Left 4 Dead 2 has survived longer than anyone thought it would. The 2009 cooperative zombie shooter is still kickin' around, proving that it has the mettle to not die quite yet. It's even getting an update sometime soon. The Left 4 De...

So that's what the bald Valve guy looks like

Live with a weird intro long enough and it becomes normalized. A dude with a valve in the back of his head? Don't worry about it. The guy before him with a plugged-up eye? He's fine. Play some Half-Life. Valve's logo splash screen has evolv...

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...

Valve's attempt to resurrect Artifact begins this week

You're probably vaguely aware of the situation regarding Valve's Artifact, but here's a brief recap. Released in late 2018 to a lot of promise from DOTA 2 fans, Artifact quickly crumbled and over the course of several months, its playerbase...

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...

Leaked Steam loyalty program might offer discounts on games

In the face of competition from other digital PC game storefronts, Valve might be planning a loyalty program with hopes that it'll give consumers some extra incentive to shop on Steam. SteamDB developer and data miner Pavel Djundik found ev...

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 ...
