  • BioShock Mod for Half-Life: Alyx is Now a Complete Campaign

    BioShock Mod for Half-Life: Alyx is Now a Complete Campaign

    Darling it's better, down where it's wetter.

    In October 2020 we told you about a short mod for Half-Life: Alyx that took us to Rapture, the undersea city of BioShock fame. At the time, the mod was fairly short, clocking in at about 25 minutes worth of gameplay.

    Today, that mod has seen some massive expansion and is now considered a full campaign. Return to Rapture combines the Half-Life: Alyx VR engine with assets and more from BioShock. This is an eight-episode release...

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is Somehow Steam's GOTY

    I mean... I guess?

    2020 is the year that just won't let up. This time, we're being told that the 2020 Game of the Year at The Steam Awards was none other than Red Dead Redemption 2. That is surprising, to say the least, when its competition for the year included games like Hades, Death Stranding, Fall Guys, and even DOOM Eternal. But it is what it is and it is a GOTY winner when all is said and done.

    Do keep in mind that this game was voted on by Steam users to be their...

    Steam's Best Selling Games of 2020

    Checking out the year's top 100 games on Steam.

    2020 has sucked all kinds of ass. You know it, I know it, people who haven't even been born yet will eventually know it. If there's one thing that made the year a little more bearable it's the fact that we probably gamed a lot more than usual thanks to, you know, everything.

    Some of that is reflected in Valve's end of the year "Best Of" list for Steam. With gaming still being big in 2020, here are just a few of...

    Half-Life: Alyx Mod Takes Us to BioShock's Rapture

    There's always a lighthouse.

    A new mod for Half-Life: Alyx was brought to light today courtesy of UploadVR. This mod, from developer wim.buytaert.1988, combines together Half-Life: Alyx with BioShock. The core idea here is that Alyx "crash-lands" in the underwater world of Rapture.

    This is accomplished by using repurposed assets from Half-Life: Alyx in combination with new assets based on locations within BioShock itself. It's not a 1 to 1 recreation of BioShock,...
