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...

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...

  • Second Truck Driver Dev Update Video Released

    Second Truck Driver Dev Update Video Released


    Around these parts, we're always keen to get some insight into game development and I'm sure you are too! That's why the "developer diary" style video was created. I'm sure we all love driving trucks as well. It's what mother nature intended for us to do. Drive trucks and watch developer update videos.

    Today, those two magnificent worlds collide with the release of the second developer update video for Truck Driver. Today's video has Remco de Rooij of Triangle Studios telling us all about the improvements made to the game. Specifically, we...

    Top 10 Weapons in Fortnite


    Fortnite is an online computer game created by Epic Games and was released in 2017. It is accessible in three different game modes which share a similar game engine. The three different game modes in Fortnite are: Save the World, a survival mode for up to four players to fend off zombie-like animals and shield objects with fortresses they can manufacture, Fortnite Battle Royale, a free-to-play mode where up to 100 players battle to be the last man standing, and Fortnite Creative, where players are given freedom to make universes and custom battlefields. Both Save...

  • European Commission Demands Valve to Stop Geo-blocking Games in EU, Valve Issues Response


    Early this morning, the European Commission (EC) issued an official "statements of objections" today towards Valve, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media, and ZeniMax. The EC claims that all of these companies are involved in anti-trust violations by placing geographic restrictions (geo-blocking/geo-locking) on the games that they sell.

    The EC says that these companies have geo-blocked Steam activation keys for games sold throughout Eastern Europe. Some of these places include Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia,...

    'The Kollector' is the Latest Mortal Kombat 11 Fighter Reveal


    Today, WBIE and NetherRealm released another new gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. Much like their previous releases, this one is indeed for a new character reveal. Today we get a look at an all-new character, The Kollector.

    Check out The Kollector's back story below and his reveal trailer. Yes, there is a glimpse of a Fatality included. Maybe Google won't get mad at me for including this gameplay trailer here. For some reason they didn't much like the last character reveal for Noob Saibot and Shang Tsung. The YouTube embeds on that one had to...

  • First of Three New Videos Released for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

    First of Three New Videos Released for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey


    Panache Digital Games and Private Division have released the first video in a new three-video series for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. We actually briefly talked about this game back when it was revealed to have a 2019 release date, which has some more general information about the game itself. As before, the game is looking to arrive this year on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    The short of it is that the game tasks you with trying to survive, thus ensuring the future of your species through evolution and good decision making. It is an open-world survival game at heart, but instead of just your own survival at stake, it's the fate of all humanity. Hey, no pressure or anything, right? ...

These characters would face off against a "Veil Demon" that was either controlled by the AI or by other players. The game was going to transition to being free-to-play once it left Early Access, but it looks like...
