All Things Lambda – The new LambdaGeneration Podcast!

Other All Things Lambda – The new LambdaGeneration Podcast!

For a long time, we had this idea of making a little something like a podcast. Now, after months of throwing ideas around, it’s finally here! This is the first episode of “All Things Lambda”!

In the first episode, Ooiman, Jeff and Dhel talk about the SteamBoy handheld, the mysterious Team Fortress 2 Bread items, and Dota 2’s ‘The International’. But of course, we couldn’t forget about the biggest gaming event of June: E3! We share our opinions about the conferences and go over a list of games announced!

This episode turned out to be longer than anticipated, too! Future episodes will be about 40 minutes long.

We hope you enjoy out first try at producing a podcast, and please do leave us feedback!

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.

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?

Community Spotlight: A New Feature by LambdaGeneration – Featuring something created by the community here every week.

Other Community Spotlight: A New Feature by LambdaGeneration – Featuring something created by the community here every week.

Hello and welcome to the new LambdaGeneration! One of the main new features of the site is ‘Community Spotlight’. For an entire week, Monday-Sunday, we will be giving content creators the opportunity to have their work independently showcased across our entire website.

The purpose of this feature is to give a dedicated platform to the diverse amount of community generated content that is out there. We will be showcasing both new and old work from a wide range of mediums.

Examples of things which will be featured include:

  • Short films and movies
  • Game modifications
  • Animations
  • Maps
  • Artwork of all mediums
  • Physical creations
  • Comics
  • Other websites
  • Projects

We felt it was only fair that we started the first proper Community Spotlight after the websites launch, so we will be releasing the first Spotlight article on Monday 7th October (1 week).

We will be choosing what to feature ourselves, however if you want to share your work or informs us of someone else’s with us, you can email it in to one of the sites sections by email. Alternatively you can submit your work to our Tumblr feed where we will likely feature it even if it not chosen for the Spotlight.

Spotlight posts will be placed into the sections which relate to the subject best and so it is anticipated that the majority of Spotlight posts will be categorised within Modding & Development, Multimedia & Film, Art & Creations and some in Community & Projects. They also have their own article format so they are permanently archived together. We would like to create a visual archive of the Community Spotlight posts in the future with some sort of rating/favouriting system so that you can interact more with the work featured.

Bare in mind that there are only 52 weeks per year and to cope with the huge amount content we want to feature there is an organised queue/calendar for the spotlight, so don’t be disappointed if your work isn’t featured around the time you submitted it, it could still be upcoming!

If we want to feature your work, we will attempt to get in touch with you the week prior to when we would like to feature yours. We also have plans to do interviews with creators if they are willing to, either in text based or audio based (which would also be featured on our YouTube channel).

LambdaGeneration came to be as a result of the inspiration from the Valve and Half-Life Community and so we would like to share more of that with you in a way which can exchange inspiration back to content creators by giving them a place of promotion.

Get creating!

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.
