Topics I've Started
Posted 18 Oct 2014You want Half-Life 3. I want Half-Life 3. We all want Half-Life 3. So, a few folks decided to take it further and create a crowdfunding venture over at IndieGoGo to try and hustle Valve into actually making it (or not!) happen. There will be different Tier goals, some of which you can see in the quote below.
QuoteAt the $3,000 tier, Salem and Mazzei will create a Google AdWord campaign targetting all 300 employees of Valve, which will read "we want Half-Life 3."
Once the $9,000 tier is reached, a truck with a giant billboard will "besiege" Valve headquarters in Washington with a similar message.
Head on over to Polygon for the rest of the article.
Posted 8 May 2014This is something which will induce some nostalgia for all you folks who loved playing modifications for Half-Life 1. Graham Smith from RockPaperShotgun came across a disc in a gift shop which contained some of the best modifications for Half-Life 1. Now, the entire collection is currently available for download on ModDB.
Some of the noteworthy modifications in this collection are: Action Half Life, They Hunger, Someplace Else, The Specialists and Half-Life Rally.
There'll be a lot of hidden gems in this one, so be sure to check it out.

Here are some pretty unknown tidbits about the history of what has become our favorite hat simulator. For starters, Team Fortress 2 as everyone knows was initially planned to have a realistic military tone and feel to it, but wait there's more!
Most of us were unaware however, that after the source engine leak way back before Half-Life 2 released, clever people found player models and code snippets related to a version of Team Fortress 2 which was centered around a theme of pitting humans against aliens.
I'll leave the rest for you to check out in the showcase neatly made by the team over at NormalBoots who have hosted the video with commentary on YouTube.
Posted 16 Apr 2014Here's an interesting article which showcases some nifty pie charts, info-graphics and data which reveal sales and popularity of games released on the Steam client. For example, the most owned game on Steam as of now is DOTA 2. Click here to read the full article over at ArsTechnica.
Posted 3 Apr 2014Well folks, if you ever wanted to see a HD rendition of Half-Life 2 using the Unreal engine, check out these beautiful pictures of the intro scene to HL2 created by artist Jeannot "Logithx" van Berlo, who has posted the images originally in this polycount thread.
It's still a WIP as Jeannot has stated saying, "Please note that there's lots of placeholder models/textures/lighting and general derpyness in these pics. Can't wait to get going with UE4." So expect to see more HD goodness in the near future.
