Hey, Valve Just Announced a New Half-Life Game

Half-Life: Alyx is a flagship VR game from Valve.

It's taken 12 years, but Valve has finally announced a new Half-Life title. The studio formerly known for developing hats has just announced a "flagship VR" title called Half-Life: Alyx.

The company has billed it as a "flagship VR" game. It's reportedly prequel to at least Half-Life 2 and will be VR exclusive. We will have more information on this when the main reveal comes this Thursday, November 21. ...
 

Review: Journey for Elysium (PC VR)

A short trip to the afterlife.

For the past several months now, we have offered up glimpses of the story-driven VR adventure title Journey for Elysium. We saw a game that had a unique visual style, the promise of a story that would take us all to an afterlife, a world filled with architecture inspired by Greek mythology, and mind-bending puzzles to solve. The unique visual style was certainly eye catching, but I often wondered if the rest of the game would be able to hold up to this aesthetically pleasing presentation.

With the release of Journey...

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...

  • Black Mesa: Xen Trailer Revealed, Release Almost a Year Away

    Black Mesa: Xen Trailer Revealed, Release Almost a Year Away

    The Black Mesa team finally released a trailer for the Xen portion of their long in-development game. As you may recall, Black Mesa was "released" in a rather incomplete stage. I say "released" because even though it was added to Steam back in May 2015, it's still listed as an "Early Access" title. I also say "released" because the entire Xen portion from the original Half-Life wasn't included. But it's now 2018 and we finally have our first actual trailer for the Xen component. The good news is that the developers say Xen alone will be a roughly ...

  • Fortnite Crowned Game of the Year at 2018 Golden Joystick Awards

    Fortnite Crowned Game of the Year at 2018 Golden Joystick Awards

    The annual Golden Joystick Awards gave out their annual awards this past Friday. None other than Fortnite took home the honors of being crowned the Game of the Year for 2018. Fortnite managed to beat out the competition in a year that included God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 as part of the nominations. Ignoring the seemingly insignificant detail that Fortnite came out in 2017, the fact remains that the Golden Joystick Award winners are voted on by people like you and me. There's no committee that votes on the winners. The winners are selected by the general...
