Now, after Valve granted the team use of the official Half-Life IP, Chapter #2 is now available on Steam as a £1.59 slice of DLC. A very good price for a 50-page comic I must say.

American Truck Sim Heading to New Mexico

American Truck Sim Heading to New Mexico

The good news is that the boys at SCS Software aren’t resting on their laurels, and are pushing on, straight to New Mexico.

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.

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.
