People should realize that PC games (and perhaps softwarez in general) are now either F2P or services/experiences that expire unless the intention behind the game is to be a mod platform.

So I guess this is the first regular staff cast since site relaunch?

Bring it on!

The point is to tie up the massive cliff hanger of the end of episode 2.

I just hope Valve is still making any kind of singleplayer game.

Half-life is a great linear FPS with little story (how I remember it) and few "cutscenes" (pretty slow start) and it is marred by platforming and the ending.

Half-life 2 is a "rollercoaster" that is highly dependent on the physics "gimmicks" and driving sequences. It has a great ending and it is probably the best post-2000 PC single player FPS experience ever (along with Far Cry and Bioshock). I'm not sure if we'll ever see a single player campaign like that again (CoD doesn't count).

So if you hate challenging shooting and/or platforming skip Half-life but don't miss HL2 (the episodes are kind of forgettable).

I don't know about the rest of Europe (they all seem to have native speaking sites e.g. ) but Scandanavia is pretty well represented.

Here is a useful overview/guide (a little old)

If you need international layout get a 'Das'. It is in the expensive part of the middle range but it is built like a fort. I have the brown cherry version and I bottomed out a lot in the beginning with my stumpy finger coordination (maybe the blues are better) but I guess you get used to it, it gets pretty comfortable in the long run and it will last you many years. I also have a Steelseries 6v2 and the black keys are mostly only useful for platformers.

In the unlikely occasion that your mechanical keyboard might break you can just retire it as a pretty sturdy blunt weapon.

Bugbear is on PS4's developer announcement and this is their new trailer.

Damn video won't embed.



I'm pretty excited to see what they can do for next gen.

It's a benchmark game?

Would you rather just play another Unreal Engine port?
