And now it’s just the “October 15th Update”.

Meeeeeh, sounds a bit dull.

You should spice that up a notch, something like “Totally, Superfluously, Extremely Awesome HUNTING PARTY Octo-goddamn-ber 15th, 2010 Anno Domini, motherf***ers Update”. Yeah, a vast improvement.

Other Valve Brings Free-2-Play Games To Steam

Free-to-play games have seen a sort of emergence over the past few years. Most free-to-play games are MMO’s that offer no subscription fees, instead opting to generate game revenue through gameplay micro-transactions, with in-game stores offering a wide range of exclusive items that significantly enhance player abilities and experience.

Other One Month Later, The Half-Life Call For Communication Group Is Starting To Ramp Up, Has Major Event Lined Up

June 2009 was expected to bring a Half-Life 2: Episode Three reveal by many. Instead, it brought… the announcement of Left 4 Dead 2. Outraged, numerous fans joined the now-infamous L4D2 Boycott group. And in one month, the Boycott group had rallied nearly 37,000 members, although most of them would later go on to… buy the game. As we know now, the Boycott didn’t work out… at all, although many thought it would never work out, from the start.
