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…

“PAYDAY: Mercy Hospital” Left 4 Dead Crossover DLC Released As Free Update

Other “PAYDAY: Mercy Hospital” Left 4 Dead Crossover DLC Released As Free Update

Back in May, Overkill Games announced that it was developing some sort of collaborative Left 4 Dead-PAYDAY crossover project, together with Valve.

One month later, a teaser trailer for this crossover project was released, revealing it to be a DLC heist level for Overkill Games’ PAYDAY: The Heist. The teaser trailer depicted action-packed gunfights with police units, set in L4D1’s infamous Mercy Hospital, prior to the zombie apocalypse that turned the world of Left 4 Dead upside down.

But since then, no further details on this DLC have been released. Well… until now!

Portal 2 at PAX! – New Coop Gameplay

First off, a reminder:

It seems that quite a few people don’t seem to give a damn about the fact that I am 1500 meters above land, only returning tomorrow.

Or the fact that school and college has started for everyone in the staff.

Any “lololo old” comments will be trashed.

We are all trying our best to dedicate any of our free-time towards LambdaGeneration so please be patient for the coming weeks till everyone has got back into the habit of things.

IF… we ever do! MWHAHAHAHAHHA!

New Operation Black Mesa Media

Other New Operation Black Mesa Media

The folks over at Operation Black Mesa, a Source-remake of Half-Life: Opposing Force, recently published a bunch of new media for the mod. According to the latest blog post posted by DragonNOR on the their ModDB page, this media release is more ‘modest’ compared to the mountain of screenshots, videos and sounds that the previous one entailed. Nevertheless, it was still as interesting as the last, packing in more fantastic concept art, detailed weapon renders and beautiful in-game screenshots.

Half-Life 3 To Be Revealed At Gamescom 2012? [UPDATED]

Other Half-Life 3 To Be Revealed At Gamescom 2012? [UPDATED]

[UPDATE 3: Believe it or not, there’s more. Gamescom organizers told Joystiq this: “We can not officially announce it. Please check our list for further changes. Please see the legend for information about the sources.

At this point, all I know is this: over the next couple of days, I will definitely be keeping an open mind, as well as my ears open.]

[UPDATE 2: Valve has stated to CVG that they will not be showing any games at Cologne this year, and the Half-Life 3 listing has been removed from the PDF document in question.]

[UPDATE: I have made a second call to the Gamescom public info line. I was explicitly informed by one of the managers, that Valve were the ones who asked that HL3 be placed on the list; but that apparently, “just a few minutes ago“, Valve requested that HL3 be removed from that list.

Meanwhile, Eurogamer reports that they were notified by Gamescom representatives, that HL3 and Dragon Age 3 appearing on the listing was “a mistake. Gamescom reps denied comment on how and why the mistake was made, which is pretty strange.

The situation is murky, but it is still developing; don’t get your hopes up just yet.]

Yes, this truly is the month when everything happened. Read on to find out how deep the rabbit hole really goes.

Homefront’s Singleplayer Campaign “Inspired By Half-Life”

Other Homefront’s Singleplayer Campaign “Inspired By Half-Life”

Homefront is a shooter being developed by Kaos Studios, who you might know for their rather infamous 2008 game, Frontline: Fuel of War.

Their latest effort is titled “Homefront”, and it takes place in 2027, in an alternate universe in which North Korea managed to somehow absorb most of Asia, and launch an assault on America.

It has been compared to Call of Duty, Battlefield, Mega Modern Combat Supreme, Destroy the Humens, yadda yadda, you get the idea.

But, according to the devs of the game, it has more in common with our beloved Half-Life.
