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...

    Dota 2 Reborn Beta - Dota 2 is Now on Source 2

    Tonight's launch of Dota 2 Reborn beta brings with it a wealth of new changes to the game. First and foremost is the fact that the game is now running on the latest version of the Source Engine. I don't even know where to begin with the other new things for this update. Valve talks about a new dashboard for the game. They literally rebuilt it from scratch to make it "more intuitive and easier to use." The "Play Dota" button is always visible on every page in the new interface. They also made it so that lobbies can now be listed publicly by the lobby leade...

  • Overwatch Leaves Beta in Latest Update to CS:GO - June 10, 2015

    Overwatch Leaves Beta in Latest Update to CS:GO - June 10, 2015

    Tonight's update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is small in size but huge in impact. Among the many changes, the big ones are the news that Overwatch is no longer in beta, new ranks (up to Rank 40), and the fact that you must now hit Rank 3 in order to play Competitive Matchmaking. There is now even a way to "prestige" (sort of) once you hit Global General Rank (Rank 40). More on that below the changelog.

  • Mike Bithell's Volume Launching on August 18

    Mike Bithell's Volume Launching on August 18

    Volume is a stealth game about not being heard (usually).
    Locksley does not kill. That would be far too easy. Instead, he commits his crimes through stealth. He sneaks, he distracts, he avoids. He is never seen, and seldom heard. As he grows in popularity and notoriety, so will his inventory. Blackjacks, bugles, thunderclaps and veils are just some of the tools at Locksley's disposal.
    Volume is slated to have "a hundred challenging and exciting environments" that can be "remixed, added to and expanded upon." The community is even free to make their ...
