What Happened to Half-Life Decay?

What Happened to Half-Life Decay?

This past week saw GameInformer drop a massive article charting Andrew Reiner’s longstanding quest to unearth information from Valve on the latest goings on with their most famous franchise, Half-Life. What emerged was a lengthy interview with an inside source, which pretty much confirms that Half-Life is all but dead. The article though prompted me to revisit an old home – valvetime.net, or as it used to be know, halflife2.net. What did I find? An interesting article looking at Half-Life Decay.

Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part Four)

It’s New Year’s Eve, and about time that I finished my series of entries in Our Year in Games. Through the first two parts of my chatter, I covered games from the last couple of years that I had spent quite some time playing this year, while in Part Three I covered three highlights from games released this year. Now, I have three further games released in 2016 that I want to talk about. Hit the break dear reader for musings on Battlefield 1Hearts of Iron IV and Dishonored 2.

Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part Two)

 

Hello, and welcome to part two of my contribution to Our Year in Games 2016. I’m continuing my tale of my year in games by talking about another selection of games that weren’t necessarily released in 2016. I have played new games this year, honest! But a lot of older games have played some part in shaping my year in games. Here’s four of them.

Our Year in Games 2016 – Chris (Part One)

Welcome to Our Year in Games coming at you from Reticule Towers. I realise that we didn’t do any sort of yearly roundup for 2015, but we’re making up for it this year. I’ve invited a few old faces to take part in Our Year in Games, so hopefully you won’t just have me for company!

I’m probably going to split my tales across a few entries to cover the games from previous years that I’ve been playing this year as well as the games from 2016 that I’ve been playing. So read on and enjoy.

Five for Five – Hevn Q&A

Five for Five – Hevn Q&A

Our Five for Five series continues today with our Q&A with the two man development team behind Hevn. My hands on preview went live earlier in week, and I thought it was one of the most fascinating blends of sci-fi and survival gameplay I had seen. I was left eager for more, but for now we have the Five for Five Q&A with Larry Johnson and Mat Matthews from developers Miga where they reveal more about their unique take on agile development and the inspiration they’ve received from games like System Shock and films like Moon. Enjoy!

Drive!Drive!Drive! Out! Now!

Drive!Drive!Drive! Out! Now!

I wrote the following about Drive!Drive!Drive! in my report from day two of EGX, “If this falls through the cracks of public consciousness, I’ll be disappointed.” I take a look around today, and I find that the game has been released on Steam and the PlayStation Store. This pleases me, as this unique racer showed great potential when I checked it out in Birmingham.
