REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Half-Life 3 Teased: Prepare For Unforeseen Consequences [Update]

Posted on Wednesday, June 26 @ 07:55:44 Eastern by

[Update] Turns out the folks at PC Gamer think it's funny to toy with the PC gaming community-at-large. The tease for next month's issue of PC Gamer? It's a big joke that "got out of hand", and was in the joke section of their magazine, which I don't subscribe to and never will after this—especially after getting Half-Life enthusiasts giddy like kids on Christmas Eve. Still, Valve has some sort of announcement coming, and whatever it was that happend on Steam Support Twitter below was legit... so maybe there's still hope? Probably not. Trolled again by something Half-Life related. I give up.


[Original] The Internet has been clamoring for it for years. I can't even begin to recall all of the Gabe Newell memes I've come across of him trolling about with Half-Life 3 teases. That all could be coming to an end soon, or we'll witness the biggest troll in Valve's history.

Yesterday, we reported on Steam Trading Cards, and ended it with a teaser straight from the horse's mouth: an announcement that "everyone can be excited about." 

Then, PC Gamer magazine teased the following image about what's coming in their next issue that hits newsstands on July 4th:



The cryptic conspiracy doesn't end there. Half-Life 2 received a whopping 3.7GB update recently, which supposedly only adds support for the Korean language. Then the official Steam Support twitter account tweeted that the update "has some issues" followed by some Korean text. 


Popping the same Korean text into Google translate provides the following translation: Prepare for unexpected results.

Sound familiar? Am I reading too far into this? Am I caught up in the massive fangasm the far reaches of the Internet are having? Or is Half-Life 3 really being announced soon? Of course, it could be nothing more than a simple language update.
