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…

L4D News: August 12th Mutation Update

Other L4D News: August 12th Mutation Update

NOTE: Outdated news, yes. Sorry guys, but I suffered some WordPress problems that pushed my schedule back quite a bit. We’ll get back on track soon enough.

And it’s Healing Gnome up this week! Only one way to heal, and that’s by holding the gnome! But that’s not all Valve has for us this week – they’re changing the way the next Mutations will be implemented. The next 4 Mutations will be the top 4 ones by player minutes. And there’s also a small status update for the Cold Stream DLC – it’s still on track for “later this Summer”. Sounds good! You can find the blog post here.

Slowly, but surely.

That’s how we do Roundups here at LambdaGeneration, and how we do work in general.

At least that’s how we like to think we do it.

Half-Life 3 Accidentally Revealed In Former Valve Dev’s Resume? (UPDATE)

Other Half-Life 3 Accidentally Revealed In Former Valve Dev’s Resume? (UPDATE)

Update: Doug Lombardi has replied to our e-mail, and he’s crystal clear on this:


And Phil Kollar reports on GameInformer, inside an article based on this story, that the information posted by ryuuk was indeed fake:

Valve’s Doug Lombardi responded to this rumor in about as clear a way as we could hope for: “This is fiction (aside from the fact that Mike D is a real person)”.

Original article: Since Episode Two’s release in October of 2007, we’ve seen virtually no substantial information on Episode Three. While Doug Lombardi did mention, in this interview with Kikizo, that the wait until Episode Three would be longer than the wait between HL2 and Episode One, and the wait between Episode One and Episode Two combined (which told us that the wait would go beyond October 2010), and that Valve may reveal something EP3-related some time at the very end of 2008. As we all know, this never happened, and since then, it’s been nothing but total silence.

Then Game Informer told us there would be no Half-Life during 2010 – and surprisingly, they were right. They also mentioned that there would be no Episode Three at all, and that it would become a full-fledged Half-Life 3, which was an idea the fans had been playing around with. Then they “predicted” that this HL3 would be revealed some time during the course of this year, which yet again, got people going.

Of course, as we all know, there was no Half-Life at E3. Game Informer’s prophecy would have to come true later in the year. But, what have we here?
