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. Rather than go on about things in an article, we created a video instead to talk about, where we've been, thoughts…

Let’s Debunk Some Fake Half-Life 3 Rumors With Vic: Fake E-Mails, Fake Twitter Accounts, And More

Other Let’s Debunk Some Fake Half-Life 3 Rumors With Vic: Fake E-Mails, Fake Twitter Accounts, And More

So, in the midst of all of this VGA-related mayhem, some people have managed to… well, troll a certain number of people. As if that wasn’t enough, another, completely unrelated number of people is now convinced that the VGA 2011 Wheatley Character of the Year nomination short somehow contains Half-Life 3 ARG clues. The bad thing is these groups appear to have combined, and we now have a tremendous number of people who believe Valve is about to announce Half-Life 3.

Now, we’re not going to be touching on the “ARG”. As silly as it may seem, maybe it’ll develop… somehow, and we’ll actually see something concrete. We’ll just give the hard-working ARG folks the benefit of a doubt for now, rather than rain on their parade for no reason. No, now I’m going go to town on all those other rumors. Rumors propagated by video game journalists who hardly have time to do a bit of research before they are forced to push an article out prematurely.

What Became Of The HL3 Protest?

Other What Became Of The HL3 Protest?

A week ago, two brave Half-Life fans committed the ultimate sacrifice – they decided to spend two days they could have spent playing Half-Life, picketing outside of Valve. These brave heroes endured 48 hours in the scorching Bellevue sun, knowing that inside the building that lay in front of them, Valve employees could be talking about, developing, or, god forbid, play-testing Half-Life 3.

But what happened when Gabe came along and spoke with the protesters? What did he tell them? Did we ever see them again?

Dates for Steam’s Holiday Sales leaked

Steam Dates for Steam’s Holiday Sales leaked

We’re living in a world where you can’t trust to almost anyone.

The bad thing is – if you can’t trust to your publisher or a developer even if NDA means nothing to them.

Today (or I’d say yesterday) a screenshot of email, which was sent to publishers and developers by Valve, was leaked by a Russian developer via Steam Greenlight – a system that uses the community’s help to pick some new games to be released on Steam.

Most of you can say ‘No, it can’t be true. It’s a fake’, but unfortunately – no. No it’s not.

This is, probably, the biggest leak, related to Steam that I have ever witnessed (but I’m pretty sure that I have forgotten something).

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Delayed Until Summer 2012, Drops Cross-Platform Play With PS3

Other Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Delayed Until Summer 2012, Drops Cross-Platform Play With PS3

Valve has remained tight-lipped regarding CS:GO ever since it first got revealed in August of last year. While the game makes appearances at various events, expos and conventions every now and then, and while the closed PC beta has really kicked off recently, Valve still hasn’t said or showed much about the game.

But in a rather… unsurprising move (we all know about Valve Time by now), it would appear that Global Offensive has suffered an… offensive delay. Myehehehe.

Control Point Podcast Returning? (Update: They are back!)

Other Control Point Podcast Returning? (Update: They are back!)

UPDATE: Episode #101 has just been posted on their official website. Welcome back, Control Point!

Started in November of 2007 (a month after the initial release of Team Fortress 2), the Control Point podcast became one of the most popular and prominent Team Fortress 2 podcasts in the community (alongside others such as Kritzkast and Friendly Fire). Throughout its history, the hosts would jokingly hint about the podcast ending on the 100th episode, and thus the podcast eventually came to an end in January of 2010 with the release of the 100th episode.

Over a year after the 100th episode was released, there has been no talk about the podcast ever returning. However, recently the TF2 Blog teased about a countdown that suddenly appeared on their website. Members of the Dead Workers Party community were quick to dissect the countdown code and look for any possible clues that may lead to a return of the Control Point podcast. When the timer hit 0, a full website was launched for the podcast, which used to reside on the official Dead Workers Party website (but now redirects to the new one). However, a much-speculated new episode has yet to be published, if any, and the hosts are remaining tight-lipped about what exactly the countdown entailed.

Only time will tell about any possible return of the podcast, and if it does, it will most likely be met with many open arms considering the ground-breaking Team Fortress 2 news as of late.
