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.

Valve is straight up calling this a "full-length" game that just happens to require a VR device to experience. Pre-orders are available now, months ahead of the game's currently planned release in March 2020. A pre-order discount brings the $59.99 (USD) price down...

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.

  • Amazing Pre-Alpha Walkthrough of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Amazing Pre-Alpha Walkthrough of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    I don't recall having heard anything about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor before today. Suddenly, this walkthrough video came out and just blew my mind and made this game from relative unknown to "I want this right this second!"

The big draw here is the "Nemesis System" which lets the player interact with various characters and adjusts how those characters behave, as highlighted in the video. As far as the timel...
