Half-Life Alyx Reveal Trailer, 4K Screens, and Release Date Announced

Valve is back.

It's been over 12 years. 12 years since the last Half-Life game was released. While it may not be Half-Life 3, Valve did today reveal Half-Life Alyx to the world. This is a new VR title for the PC that is set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

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...

    Microsoft Details Backwards Compatibility for the Xbox One

    Microsoft announced backwards compatibility this week for the Xbox One. Yes, you will soon be able to play Xbox 360 titles, retail and digital, on your Xbox One. In fact, if you're a part of the Xbox One Preview Program then you can try it out for yourself right now.

    So, what's the catch? The catch is that not every game is supported. Developers and publishers have to give the go ahead for their games to be backwards compatible. It costs them nothing and involves no actual work. They just have to give permission.

    Horizon Zero Dawn from Guerrilla Games Pits You Against Big Robotic Animals

    Sony and Guerrilla Games showed off what the developer has been working on these past few months. No, it's not another Killzone game, far from it. Horizon Zero Dawn takes us back to the future where humanity hunts (and is hunted by) large machine "animals" to gather resources in order to survive.

    I'm not doing a very good job explaining what the game is so I'll just let the screenshots, the reveal trailer, and Hermen Hulst, the Managing Director for GG, explain it all to you.

    The PC Gaming Show is Now Live at E3 2015

    The final "major" show of E3 2015 is upon us. The main event for the PC Gaming Show isn't for another 30 minutes (from the time of this posting) but you can get settled in now. I'm not 100% sure how long this is supposed to run for or what exactly we're supposed to see at this thing, but it could be interesting. Right? PC gaming isn't dead? Right? Naw, of course not. You can watch this one entirely on Twitch since I'm not sure if YouTube is going to be covering this one properly. After this, that's it! I'm free! Not really. I still have to get a ton of n...
