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

News Roundup #15

Other News Roundup #15

I know, this is last week’s Roundup… again.

We had a motherlode of articles, including this Roundup, set to be released this week, but since I couldn’t reach anyone from the staff, they went delayed.

Call it LambdaGeneration time or something.

Pinky and I will put in crunch time, and hopefully today’s Roundup will be out at a reasonable time.

Something Strange Going On At Valve With Counter-Strike

Other Something Strange Going On At Valve With Counter-Strike

There’s been rumors that Valve is inviting a number of the top competitive CS players from all over the world to their Bellevue HQ, even personnel from the ZBlock team. Now, obviously, since these are all mere chinese whispers, so to speak, pinpointing any direct information is tough, but I’ve managed to dig up some stuff.

Vote For Valve At The 2011 Spike TV Video Game Awards!

Other Vote For Valve At The 2011 Spike TV Video Game Awards!

This year’s edition of the Spike TV Video Game Awards, or “VGA’s” for short, are coming up this Saturday, on the 10th of December. Whether you believe every random “video game news” website that says “industry contacts” told them Half-Life 3 would be announced on stage (maybe you even believe that other website that says it might even be that mysterious PS3 exclusive), or if that weird T-shirt thing has just got you a bit more excited than usual, the VGA’s are still worth checking out. Why? Because Valve will probably be walking out of there with accolades, that’s why!

But they aren’t going to pull it off without your help! So, anyone ready to do some science? And by science, I mean “voting for Valve… again”?

Don’t Look Now, but Valve May Have Just Filed a Trademark for Half-Life 3

Half-Life Don’t Look Now, but Valve May Have Just Filed a Trademark for Half-Life 3

Update: Due to a loophole with JIRA and Google Cache, people were once again able to access Valve’s project tracker. NeoGAF user ekim managed to snap some pictures of the tracker before it was closed, showing that the Half-Life 3 group have increased in members (to a total of 46), and reveals a new group called Half-Life 3 Core, with only 10 members.

Update 2: The trademark has been removed, and we can safely assume the whole thing was a fake. As fellow writer Dhel says, there is no trademark for either Half-Life 2 nor Left 4 Dead, which further fuels the assumption.
But hey, at least we got some delicious hype out of it, didn’t we?

It hasn’t been long since the leak of the internal changelog at Valve, which confirmed the existence of Source 2 and Left 4 Dead 3.

Ignoring the leak however, we’ve gone long without any news on both Ricochet 2 and Half-Life 3 (the former which I’m personally more excited for). Well, it’s time to quench some of your thirst for news!
