Valve is running an Indie Spring Sale on Steam right now. There are more than 300 games to choose from. I grabbed several including Hotline Miami, Trine 2, and Deadlight.
The Freeman Chronicles is a a 6-episode, live-action series by the teams behind Beyond Black Mesa and Enter the Freeman. You can support the project via Indiegogo.
In what could be the single greatest piece of PC gaming news this year, Microsoft revealed today that Hidden Path Entertainment has been secretly working on an HD remake of Age of Empires II, and they say it will arrive as a Steam exclusive on April 9th.
Even better, the game will only be $20 - unless you pre-order it, in which case it’s $17.99!
Aperture R&D is a brilliant looking new web series coming March 15th.
Valve let go of as many as 25 people today including hardware designer Jeri Ellsworth and its head of business development Jason Holtman. But it’s no cause for concern. Valve CEO Gabe Newell told Engadget that all is well at Steam headquarters.
While this doesn’t look good, Valve is one of the most successful developers and publishers in the gaming industry today. There’s obviously a solid underlying reason for this move.
J.J. Abrams - yes, the same J.J. Abrams behind the new Star Trek and Star Wars films – is talking to Gabe Newell and the Valve crew about doing Half-Life and Portal movies.
The only question now is whether the Half-Life movie will beat Half-Life 3 to market.
Valve just pushed out a major update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It includes an impressive list of balance changes and adds a brand new mode: Deathmatch. You can read the full list of changes right here. It isn’t terribly long but the changes themselves are huge.
Valve also just launched a private beta for a CS: GO map editor. Huzzah!
The Left 4 Dead 2 modding community is one of the strongest of any PC game today. And now, thanks to Valve, there’s an official Steam Workshop where content creators can publish their work. There are literally thousands of custom campaigns, skins, weapons, and mutators out there. It’s awesome to see Valve throwing its support behind the community.
I haven’t played Left 4 Dead in ages. Maybe it’s time to fire it back up?
Microsoft Studios head Phil Harrison issued a warning to Valve about the perils of doing business in the hardware market following Gabe Newell’s confirmation that a Steam Box is coming in the not so distant future. In other words, Microsoft is absolutely shitting bricks over the fact that the entire Xbox line is about to become more or less obsolete.
It’s going to be very interesting to watch the gaming industry change over the next few years.
Valve CEO Gabe Newell finally talked about some of the obvious problems Valve is having with development on Half-Life 3 Ricochet 2 during a podcast interview with The Nerdist. In short, he’s worried the game isn’t going to live up to the hype no matter what they do.
And that’s because it isn’t going to live up to the hype. It can’t. It’s been far too long.
