Noclip Gives Us a Long Look at Canceled Half-Life 2: Return to Ravenholm

This is the longest look yet at the canceled Half-Life 2 spin-off from Arkane and Valve.

Back in 2006 and 2007, Arkane Studios (Dishonored, Prey) was working on a Half-Life 2 spinoff title called Return to Ravenholm (or simply Ravenholm). Development on the game began at Junction Point Studios between 2005 and 2007 with a team led by Warren Spector. The idea was to create a spin-off episode that would explain the backstory of the trap filled Ravenholm and Father Grigori.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Review (PC)

Ranks among the best of the Borderlands franchise.

Right out of the gate, I must say that I would consider myself a fan of the Borderlands games. I have played through the first game about two times, the second game about three times, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel about 1.5 times, and Borderlands 3 at least once. I frankly cannot remember if I played through the third game twice, once solo and once with friends, or if I just played through it all once with friends. And really, the less...

  • Real Witcher School Has License Pulled by CD Projekt Red

    Real Witcher School Has License Pulled by CD Projekt Red

    The alt-right might have something to do with it, because of course.

    There once existed a real Witcher school in Poland. I say "once" because the school had its license pulled by CD Projekt Red back in February. The reason for the license getting pulled may be due to one of the school's staff belonging to a prominent alt-right group.

    The Witcher school in question was named 5 Żywiołów, or 5 Elements. It began in 2015 and held roughly 40 events over seven years...

  • Is Overwatch 2 Doomed to Fail?

    Is Overwatch 2 Doomed to Fail?

    Reinventing a service or game is never easy, whilst there are a few that have done it in the past, it’s often not something that turns out all that well. There’s a reason why many services have a certain formula and approach that they stick to and is proven to work. Many of the biggest genres like betting for example will seem familiar in how they operate and even in the bonuses as players can check BetMGM Registration code in Ontario for bonuses for example – operators won’t try to reinvent...

    To Nobody's Surprise Hazard Zone Support is Ending for Battlefield 2042

    This is the least shocking news ever.

    DICE announced that they are no longer going to support or release new content for the Hazard Zone mode in Battlefield 2042.

    Now, I know what you're thinking: "How could they end support for something that they never supported in the first place?" And you would be correct in asking that rhetorical question. What this essentially means is that DICE isn't going to convert any new maps into Hazard Zone variants. The mode will...

    Well, sort of.

    Year 7 Season 2 for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege will begin on June 7. When it arrives, it will feature a crossover with the Yakuza franchise that probably nobody saw coming.

    There will be exclusive bundles released for the Rainbow Six Operators Echo and Hibana that transform them into Kazuma Kiryu and Kaoru Sayama respectively. The end of the new trailer showcasing these skins offered up a tease of a possible third skin that sure as hell seems like Goro...

  • Destiny 2 Season 17 Trailer Released Ahead of Schedule

    Destiny 2 Season 17 Trailer Released Ahead of Schedule

    PlayStation Japan did an oopsie.

    Bungie has been very cagey about releasing any information regarding Season 17 for Destiny 2. This silence is very unlike the studio, as they commonly have massive information drops days if not weeks ahead of a new Season. In fact, the plan was to not even release the Season 17 trailer until mere hours before the Season begins on Tuesday, May 24.

    Leave it up to forces outside of their control to ruin some big surprises for players. PlayStation...

    Jesus is back and he's pissed.

In this book series, Jesus of Nazareth didn't take too kindly to being crucified, responding not with forgiveness but with rage.
