Valve, Quit Teasin’ Us Already

Valve, Quit Teasin’ Us Already

Much of the internet is abuzz this morning with the news of Valve, err I mean Aperture Science cancelling their event at E3 this month in lieu of there being a surprise planned during the company’s keynote.

Bravo Valve, You Kings of Obscurity

Bravo Valve, You Kings of Obscurity

If you haven’t heard, it’s very possible that Valve has released a whole slew of potential Portal 2 artwork and have earned the title of “Kings of Obscurity” by including it all in an update for Portal that features hidden messages in audio format that have to be fed through a hash translator and ancient […]

Morning Cup o’ Music

Well, I had no intention of making this week the Bananameme MCoM week that it’s quickly turning into. Today’s video features Raffi’s “Bananphone” from the album with the same name.

Videogame Art – James Barnetts Fauxvism

Videogame Art – James Barnetts Fauxvism

I love it when I stumble across really good videogame art and James Barnetts Fauxvism series is no exception.  Rather than using screenshots he found online as a reference, he played the games until he found a composition he liked, then he painted it.  I’m overjoyed that he included scenes from Fallout 3 and Half […]

 

You’re doing it right: Black Mesa trailer may cause joy, erection

As well as being a great developer in their own right, Valve is also lucky to have one of the biggest modding communities on the internet. Some mods can be small things, or other may be big projects like this. I’m sure that you’ve already heard about Black Mesa: Source, but if you haven’t, here’s […]
