We Are The Lambda Generation. LambdaGeneration is a website dedicated to the video game Half-Life. ( We're basically really passionate about crowbars, headcrabs and anyone who has goatee with a PhD in theoretical physics… )

The Next Generation

Today, October 10th 2017, marks 10 years since the release of Half-Life 2: Episode 2. Today is also the day we're announcing something exciting that's coming to LambdaGeneration soon.

Podcast 17 To Interview GoldenEye: Source Later Today

Other Podcast 17 To Interview GoldenEye: Source Later Today

Today, at 7PM GMT/8PM BST (in 1 hour and 30 minutes, as a matter of fact), part of the Podcast 17 crew (myself included) will be interviewing Enzo, Major, and Emilia of the GoldenEye: Source development team (in case you didn’t get the memo, version 4.2 of GE:S was released earlier this month).

In other news, episode #200 will be recorded two hours after that, at 9PM GMT/10PM BST. It’s important for two really important reasons: the first being that it may very well be the biggest episode we’ve ever done. Really. Discussing Source 2 alone is worth like… 50 episodes.

The second reason is that we’re introducing a new co-host along with it: Mimaz, whom you might recognize as one of the co-hosts of the defunct Steamcast podcast, and one of my colleagues here at LambdaGen (he is, of course, the creator of the upcoming Half-Life Dissertation).

He used to post regularly on the Steam forums (where he would scare everyone into submission with copious amounts of impressive Half-Life knowledge and trivia), and he is a very good friend of mine. Also, he’s Australian. So listen in, if you know what’s good for you.

TF2 To Get Secret New Project In 2012, Steam Workshop Blog Goes Live, “Meet The Pyro” Is On The Way, And More!

Other TF2 To Get Secret New Project In 2012, Steam Workshop Blog Goes Live, “Meet The Pyro” Is On The Way, And More!

It’s now 2012. What are we all looking forward to? Well, we’re looking forward to another disappointing E3, for one. We’re totally not looking forward to a war in the Middle East, because it might end up being a war in Middle Everywhere. Although some of us might be looking forward to the end of the world, because the Mayans told us about it, and they had ancient aliens on their side. Not the Combine, though.

So what can we do? Well, we can ready our emergency supplies for the war in… well, just about everywhere. We can ready our game library for a disappointing E3, yes. But when it comes to the apocalypse, at the hands of the long-lost Mayan army, then all we can do is… play Team Fortress 2, I guess.
