    Geoff Keighley takes a deep dive into the development of Half-Life: Alyx.

    Just as he did with Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Titanfall 2, Portal 2, and many others, Geoff Keighley once again takes a deep dive behind the scenes of the development of a game. This time, the game is none other than Valve's Half-Life: Alyx.

    Steam Summer Sale 2020 Dates Leaked

    Get those wallets ready.

    A time honored consumer tradition is waiting until the right moment to spend a lot of money on items they wanted but did not want to pay full price for. An equally time honored tradition, at least among PC gamers is having the dates of the Steam Summer Sale leaked well ahead of time.

    In fact, those dates are usually leaked right around this time of the year. In fact, 2019's dates were leaked almost exactly a year ago, with a difference of just...

    Valve May Be Working on a Loyalty Rewards Program

    It's time again for a rumor!

    According to a data miner and developer, Pavel Djundik over on Twitter, Valve may soon introduce some form of a loyalty rewards program through Steam. According to some information found while diving deep into the data mines, Steam has some sort of a currently new and unused point system. There is also a new reaction system that has shown up that will allow you to add a variety of reactions to user reviews.

    Some of the "rewards" that...

  • Review: Half-Life Alyx is VR at Its Finest

    Review: Half-Life Alyx is VR at Its Finest

    A watershed moment for VR gaming.

    In the past several days, I have gone back and forth on what I wanted to write for the Half-Life: Alyx review. I have gone through several revisions and at least two full rewrites now. It's not that I am at a loss for words. It's more that I just have too much that I want to say. I want to go on and on about how neat this sequence was or how refined this aspect was. The result of that review was just some rambling word salad that made for a poor reading...

  • Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth

    Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth

    Budget that bandwidth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Everyone is at home. If not, they probably should be. 2020 has been crazy wild and it's still only March. One of the things people have been doing more of, is playing games. What else is there to do when you're under quarantine? Work? HA! Screw that!

    The problem with being at home all the time like this, is that the network in your home, country, or even globally can be impacted significantly. People have more time now...

  • Mike Shapiro, Voice of Half-Life's G-Man, Seems to be Teasing Something

    Mike Shapiro, Voice of Half-Life's G-Man, Seems to be Teasing Something

    Shapiro hints that his next project is a "blast from the past."

    Though Valve has just released Half-Life: Alyx, it wasn't exactly the Half-Life game many fans of the series wanted. Sure, it's an absolutely fantastic game but it's not exactly Half-Life 3, you know? Though it took Valve almost 13 years to get any sort of a new Half-Life game released after Half-Life 2: Episode Two, there may actually be something else coming sooner than you may think.

    One day after...

  • Valve Fully Expects Someone Will Mod VR Out of Half-Life: Alyx

    Valve Fully Expects Someone Will Mod VR Out of Half-Life: Alyx

    The question is: What will be lost in translation?

    Half-Life: Alyx was just released and with it has come a heap of praise from those with VR headsets along with a heap of complaints from those who are against the mere idea of virtual reality. If you are expecting Valve to release a official version of the game that strips out the VR aspect, you are most certainly barking up the wrong tree. Half-Life: Alyx was built around VR, not the other way around. To release a version of the game...

    Wow, who could have seen this coming? We finally have a new Half-Life game being released! Valve has just flipped the switch for every VR owner on Steam and Half-Life: Alyx is now released.

    Half-Life: Alyx is available now on Steam for $59.99 (USD). I'm going to do something I don't normally do during the day:...

    Gabe Newell Talks Epic Games Store, Dislikes the 'Apple Model' of Business

    👀

    Valve's Gabe Newell hasn't said too much about the new digital retailer on the market, otherwise known as the Epic Games Store. In an upcoming interview with Edge magazine's Alex Spencer (issue 334), Newell opened up about a number of hot button subjects such as Half-Life: Alyx, the future of VR, and how he views "competition" from the Epic Games Store.

    Spencer asked Newell whether or not the competition from the Epic Games Store has affected Valve's own approach...
