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…

The Half-Life Series Mass Playthrough – Taking Place 15th May – 22nd May

Other The Half-Life Series Mass Playthrough – Taking Place 15th May – 22nd May

I’d imagine it’s been a fairly long time since most of us have thoroughly replayed the Half-Life games – and looking at Episode Three (or should I say Half-Life 3?) and the speed with which it’s moving along, it’s probably going to get even longer soon.

But what if instead of just sitting around, idly waiting for… you guessed it, Episode Three, we did something a bit more impressive? I mean, don’t get me wrong, sitting around is quite the enjoyable activity. But one of the most important components of the Half-Life franchise is its community. Imagine Half-Life without all of the websites, communities, and mods that have sprung up over the years. Quite challenging, isn’t it?

So then, why not show Valve that we are still somewhere around here, still waiting, and that we are willing to resort to some extreme measures to show that. And by that we don’t mean… making more fansites or… sitting around, listening to industrial music.

Opposing Force 2 – Demo Coming This Weekend!

It isn’t very often that you see a mod that not only tries to continue Adrian Shephard’s story into the HL2 universe, but one that tries to live up to Gearbox’s Opposing Force.

Opposing Force 2, which has been in the making for 3 years, might just do both of those things.

All Half-Life games have had some fairly memorable introductions. Half-Life 1’s intro was astounding even years after the game’s release, Opposing Force’s intro was action-packed and exciting, and while Blue Shift’s intro was nothing more than a redo of HL1’s opening, it was still cool to see new areas of Black Mesa.

Episode One’s intro was also memorable. Starting you off in a pile of rubble at the feet of the devastated Citadel, after watching a psychedelic vision sent to Gordon by the Vortigaunts. And who didn’t enjoy Episode Two’s intro? Starting you off in a broken train that’s about to crash to the ground?

But it’s Half-Life 2’s intro that is arguably, the greatest one of the bunch. The player is thrown 20 years into the future, in a dystopian Eastern European city dominated by an oppressive alien force. You literally have no idea what is going on.. well, unless you watched all the trailers and the screenshots and read the juicy info.

Team Fortress

Valve’s annual Christmas celebration has arrived, and it’s bringing some amazing content for almost every faction of the TF2 community. Those who wished for new gameplay content can enjoy three new weapons and a new game mode that uses two revamped versions of old maps. Those who wished for cosmetics will love the new festive weapons and 29 new wearables, not to mention the return of last year’s Stuffed Stocking and the addition of Australium weapons into the drop system of pre-Two Cities Mann Up tours.
