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.

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.

    Minecraft Movie is in the Works

    Minecraft is being turned into a big Hollywood film thanks to Warner Bros. and Roy Lee, Producer on The Lego Movie. Jill Messick (Mean Girls) will also be on as a Producer.
    The studio is wisely tapping into what could become another Lego monster or bigger as Minecraft has just passed over 100M users and has been downloaded to 14.3M PCs. From a marketing standpoint, the property cuts across all demos in terms of popularity.
