    This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    January 8, 2016 is when we reported that Half-Life writer, Marc Laidlaw, parted ways from Valve. 18 years worth of writing for the company saw him pen some of the best games of our lifetime including the entirety of Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Dota 2, and Portal. It was sad, disappointing, and even a bit frustrating that he left before we ever got to experience his work in Half-Life 3. It's weird to think about Half-Life 3. Fans have wanted it for years now, but Valve just doesn't seem capabl...

    Rockstar Revives Smuggler's Run for GTA Online

    Way back in the day, Rockstar Games made a series of games called Smuggler's Run. Seeing as how the last games in that series came out for the GameCube and PlayStation 2, I'd say it's been a while since Smuggler's Run saw the light of day. That is, it has remained dormant until today.

    GTA Online brings back some of that old feeling with the Smuggler's Run update. You're looking at new planes, helicopters, and ultralights to play with as you try to transport "goods" around...

  • Poll: How do You Feel About Xbox Going Multi-Platform?
    by Shawn Zipay
    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms. Just this week, those rumors were given more substance from a number of sources that say games such as Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Hi-Fi Rush, and even Gears of War could end up on PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch.
