What is LambdaGeneration?

Other What is LambdaGeneration?

Hello everyone and welcome to this brand new website! So you maybe asking, what is LambdaGeneration?

Well, it is simply a community based website which is focused on news, creations and multimedia produced in the Valve community…basically anything related to the Half-Life Universe. We have community connections with other sites like PlanetPhillip and Podcast17 too.

New content will be posted daily and we hope people will enjoy reading everything. Make sure to join our public Steam group and follow us on Twitter for updates.

If you are interested in being a writer, send us an email and tell us a little about yourself.

“See You When I See You…”

Other “See You When I See You…”

It’s been 2 and a half years, my friends. 2 and a half years since we first put LambdaGeneration on the map and brought you a new home for all your Valve community news and media. We’ve reported on many of the past years’ most significant events, releases and creations. Though it’s more than a little disappointing that I won’t be able to discuss the… eventual announcement and eventual release of Half-Life 3 with you all, the news will make the rounds all over the web, and I think we’ll all be able to make up our minds on our own about what Valve has to offer.

This applies for all of their upcoming projects too, including the rather shocking possibility of a Left 4 Dead 3 on the horizon. In any case, for yours truly, Vic, lead editor of LambdaGen, it’s time for me to pass the torch (well, if there’s anyone to pass it to), as far as running the show here on the main page as head writerman. I wish I didn’t have to leave on a lingering note of inactivity, but some finality was the least I could offer.

Incredible Blue Shift World Record Speedrun Performed by Quadrazid and Rayvex, And More Breathtaking Valve Speedruns

Half-Life Incredible Blue Shift World Record Speedrun Performed by Quadrazid and Rayvex, And More Breathtaking Valve Speedruns

Here’s one for the history books: the world’s fastest HL: Blue Shift speedrun. And another one for the history books: this thing was released almost 3 months ago. So the only logical conclusion here is… quadrazid is fast, Vic is slow. It’s funny, you see, because I can’t strafejump for s**t. Hell, I can barely tell the difference between strafejumping and bhopping. But I still manage to dominate Portal 2’s Challenge Mode on my Friends list.

A Call for Collaboration

Other A Call for Collaboration

Update 11th August: Thanks to everyone who emailed in!

If anyone is still interested, we are still looking for contributors to cover the following specific topics:

  • Garry’s Mod – Modding news, playthoughs, gamemode/map reviews, comics! etc.
  • Portal Series – Modding news, mod/map reviews, community creativity eg.fan-films, artwork etc.
  • Left4Dead Series – Official news, modding news, map reviews, community creativity eg.fan-films
  • DOTA 2 – Official news, events coverage, community projects

We are also appealing to anyone who is interested in producing video content, such as playthroughs, mod/map/gamemode reviews and video tutorials.

Also, if you are someone who is interested in producing very occasional articles for the site, we are always interested in publishing ‘guest articles’ as opposed to dedicating yourself as a contributor.

Happy Holidays From LambdaGeneration!

Other Happy Holidays From LambdaGeneration!

We here at LambdaGeneration would like to wish you season’s greetings, and very happy holidays! Best wishes, tidings of joy, peace on Earth… and maybe a copy of Half-Life 3.

Which reminds me – what would Christmas be without a celebratory LambdaGeneration Christmas short? Did you answer “probably just Christmas“? Then you’d probably be right. Except we won’t let it be just Christmas! So like we did last year, we have concocted a heart-warming holiday special for that express purpose. It’s animated and directed by our very own Jeff – if you’re interested in seeing some more of his work, hit up his production blog on Tumblr.

Enough with all the words! Let’s take a look, shall we?

Don’t forget to check out our retrospective look at the events of December 2011, when a single T-shirt drove us all mad.

Writing about Valve, their community, their games and their engines is fun, but sometimes you just want to do… more, you know?

It feels as if it’s all pointless, and it’s getting dull too.

What can you do then?
