Half-Life RTS Lambda Wars Hits Steam

Half-Life Half-Life RTS Lambda Wars Hits Steam

So far, the adventures of Gordon Freeman have always been told from a first-person perspective (and should probably stay that way). But the Half-Life universe is full of opportunities, and who could pass on the chance of taking a bird’s eye view to command an army of resistance fighters or order a barrage of headcrab shells? Lambda Wars is a real time strategy game that makes all this possible.

Interview: A glimpse into the rain soaked dystopian future of G-String

Source Interview: A glimpse into the rain soaked dystopian future of G-String

G string is one of those mods that leaves a lasting impression after you play it. The world you are thrown into is so compelling and rich that at times I found myself just sort of standing there in an open street as the polluted acid rain slowly ate away at my health, just basking in this hopelessly depressing cyberpunk dystopia laid out before me. G string manages to take elements of cyberpunk from films such as Blade Runner and Ghost In The Shell and splice it with the feeling of abandonment and hopelessness I felt while playing Stalker : Shadow of Chernobyl. Together it is a very potent mix.

Parallel Universes: 15 Years of Half-Life Modding

Half-Life Parallel Universes: 15 Years of Half-Life Modding

The year is 1998. A previously unknown group of game developers known as Valve Software has just released Half-Life. Of course it becomes an instant hit, entertaining a generation of gamers worldwide. But beyond that, buried away on the CD-ROM inside that ridiculously big cardboard game box is a program called “Worldcraft”. According to a note at the back of the instruction manual (remember those?) this program would allow fans to “create a replica of their garage or a fantastic alien world”. And create they did. With this tool, now known as Hammer, at their disposal, the possibilities have been almost endless. From Counter-Strike to Ricochet, from Black Mesa to deep space to World War II France, the community created a tidal wave of new adventures, far beyond what anyone might have anticipated. Fifteen years later, we show no sign of stopping.
