News Roundup #53

News & Rumors Other

It’s been a busy news week! Between Valve firing on all fronts with TF2 cross-game promos and what may be the world’s first Half-Life protest, we’ve also seen the addition of a major new Steam feature.

Well, not that busy. I’m sure there’ll be one news week when we’ll see Valve announce Day of Defeat 2 (Dipping its toes in modern warfare, perhaps?), Gunman Chronicles 2 (The gaming industry needs more space westerns), Deathmatch Classic 2 (Three-Wave CTF, where have you gone?), and the long-awaited Ricochet 2 (Hey, they revived Tron!), all bundled inside the United Nations Blue Box. It will be a glorious news week, indeed.
