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.

Merry Christmas Everyone! Merry… day late… Christmas… oops!

Yes, this animated special is a bit late… my apologies, the family wanted to spend time together on the special holiday. Late or not, I was still determined to finish this animation. So take a minute, pretend it’s Wednesday and enjoy some holiday cheer from the LambdaGen crew…

Special thanks to Dhel for the last-minute vocals and a very special thanks to Lilgreenman for drawing all those awesome Xmas Advents, check those out over here.

Happy Holidays, and we hope to see you in the New Year!

 

 

Half-Life on the Master System

Half-Life

Over at PixelJoint.com, a user by the name of ‘robotwo‘ posted a handful of screenshots for his development of Half-Life on the Master System, a console released by Sega back in 1985.

The game is indeed an actual playable game, and according to robotwo it has taken around 6,000 lines of code just to create the four rooms shown in his post. Gordon may look a bit chubby, but robotwo explains that he wanted to keep him as readable as possible on such a small scale (due to the limitations of the Sega Master System).

Also while any further details are bare, be sure to check out his undertaking.

New Unbelievable 19-Minute HL: Opposing Force Speedrun Sets World Record

Half-Life New Unbelievable 19-Minute HL: Opposing Force Speedrun Sets World Record

I tend to think of myself as an average to high-skill player. I’m not the best, but I’m pretty good at most games I play, and I’m pretty damn terrific at some of them. I won’t name any of them, because some of them have leaderboards, and when it comes to my high scores, I don’t even trust my own grandmother. But when I see shit like this, then I start feeling inadequate. It’s like the locker room all over again.

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?
