As you know, I have just returned from my perilous journey in Timbuktu, where the Internet and Half-Life are outlawed! Hit that “More” button to hear about my adventures!

Welcome to the New LambdaGeneration!

Other Welcome to the New LambdaGeneration!

Hello and welcome to the new LambdaGeneration!

It’s been a while since LambdaGeneration was last on your screens, but the good news is we’re back and ready to re-serve the Valve Community with a whole line of new features and fresh content.

You maybe asking: Why did LambdaGeneration go offline for so long?

Well the answer to that lies between two factors, one being our hosting expired, which would have cost a lot of money and time to renew and restore the previous site. The other, being that the site was already in a poor state due to the departure of Vic and the general lack of content at the time. It was therefore decided to hold the site and focus all efforts on creating the new one.

You may also be wondering: How come it took so long?

The answer to that is of course, Valve Time. (Or that making a bespoke WordPress theme from scratch is pretty damn hard!)

We Heart You Phillip Marlowe

Half-Life We Heart You Phillip Marlowe

Back on June 27, Phillip Marlowe wrote an article thanking William McMahon for all his work on Podcast 17 and in the Half-Life community. He spoke of his dedication and love for the game and the people who play it , and it was an extremely thoughtful thing for Phillip to do.

Phillip runs his own website, PlanetPhillip, where he reviews mods and maps for the Half-Life and Portal games along with providing download mirrors and forums. He doesn’t plaster his sites with ads nor demand attention to himself, something that we here at Lambda Generation love to do.

New “Portal Done Pro-er” Speedrun Smashes Previous Portal 1 World Record

Portal New “Portal Done Pro-er” Speedrun Smashes Previous Portal 1 World Record

A year and a half ago, in late 2010, Michael “DemonStrate” Yanni created a jaw-dropping 9-minute speedrun of the original Portal, titled “Portal Done Pro. It was the new world-record time for the fastest playthrough of Portal 1, and understandably, it was widely publicized at the time.

But you know what they say: records are made to be broken. And yesterday, PDP’s world record was not only broken, but smashed wide open. Read on!

“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.

What’s Going On?

I would imagine there are a few questions going through your head at the moment. Why didn’t we post anything on the 24th? Why did we only post one article on the 25th?

Allow me to answer all your questions through a simple FAQ, which I completely made up, for a stronger effect.
