This September a public beta will begin from a group that calls themselves the Source VR Mod Team. This mod aims to bring the entirety of Half-Life 2 to the world of virtual reality.

  • Steam Client Update for July 27, 2022

    Steam Client Update for July 27, 2022

    Haven't had one of these bad boys in a while.

    Remember when Steam was still in its infancy and every update was a relatively major news event? Those have largely gone by the wayside these days as Steam updates are a dime a dozen and outside of a new feature here or there, there really isn't much to write about when a new update lands.

    Today's update is no different. Frankly, I'm just writing about this new update because I happened to see that it was just released, and...

    Steam Could Hit Tesla Cars as Early as August

    Oh yeah, this seems safe.

    Progress is apparently being made on adding Steam integration into Tesla dashboards. This is according to a recent tweet by Elon Musk that states the electric car company is "making progress" on the integration and that they are possibly going to start testing it as early as August.

    Hey, let's just hope that this largely unnecessary feature isn't coming at the sacrifice of oh, I don't know, making sure that the cars stop crashing into...

  • Steam VR Fest Begins July 18

    Steam VR Fest Begins July 18

    The worlds are virtual but the savings are real.

    Valve announces that from July 18th through to July 25th they will be "celebrating the most overachieving category of 'interactive gaming' there is: Virtual Reality!" As someone that owns an older VR headset, I would be inclined to agree with that assessment.

    Next week, the Steam VR Fest will be held that allows fans and interested parties to explore a wide range of VR titles. VR owners will get to try out demos...

    Black Mesa is Getting a Demake on the Half-Life Engine

    So, a fan remake on a new engine for a game released on an old engine is getting demade back on the old engine?

    You ever see a news story that just makes you scratch your head? This is one of them.

    It took almost 15 years from a mod team to create and fully release Black Mesa, a Source engine remake of Valve's original Half-Life. A bit more than a simple remake, Black Mesa took a few liberties with some aspects of their creation, opting to expand the game a bit beyond...

    Parts of Half-Life 2 Are Playable in Portal on Switch

    There's always more than meets the eye when it comes to Portal.

    It was only a day ago when Valve released Portal: The Companion Collection on the Nintendo Switch. This compilation of both Portal and Portal 2 offered Switch owners a chance to play these classics for the first time on a Nintendo product.

    It took less than a day of availability before people found out that significant chunks of Half-Life 2 were tucked neatly away in the files for Portal. The discovery was...

    As part of a previously mentioned required test protocol, we can no longer lie to you. When the testing is over, you will be missed.

    Earlier today during that Nintendo Direct Mini, Valve announced that Portal: The Companion Collection is now officially available on the Nintendo Switch. The going price is just $19.99 (USD) and can be purchased right now from My Nintendo Store.

    Valve worked with NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios on Portal: The Companion Collection. Today's release...

    Valve to Double Weekly Steam Deck Shipments

    Some good news for those still waiting for their Deck.

    I mean, it's a sale from a digital storefront. What more is there to really say about it? You know what sales are. You know what Steam is. You put two and two together and you get the Steam Summer Sale.

    Valve is once again doing the whole trading cards...

    Team Fortress 2 Receives Substantial Exploit Fix Update

    No, this update doesn't directly tackle the bot problem.

    An update for Team Fortress 2 was released last night for the 15-year-old game. While this update does not tackle the game's horrific bot problem directly, it does fix a number of bugs and exploits. It's one of the larger patches released for the game in quite some time now.

    The update fixes some exploits related to being able to use sv_cheats on secure servers. That seems like a pretty important thing to fix. It...

  • Poll: Have You Ever Raged Because of a Game?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Broken controllers, holes in walls, excessive yelling and swearing.

    While I'm sure we would all like to consider ourselves here calm, cool, and collected that might not always hold true when playing a frustrating game. Maybe you're having a particularly frustrating day, and nothing is going your way. Maybe your teammates (and totally not you) are doing terrible and you're losing a multiplayer game because of it. Maybe you just died for the 50th time to a boss that did some unblockable...
    Yes, I've raged. Full on broken controller & hole in wall levels of rage.
