  • Portal 2 E3 Trailer

    Easily one of my top ten games gets a totally awesome E3 trailer. Judging by the video, I like where they’re going, with the run down, partially destroyed areas overgrown with plants…looks sweet. Also interesting that Gabe Newell announced this at Sony’s event, saying the PS3 will have the best version.

  • Left 4 Dead 2 DLC The Passing Out Tomorrow

    The first DLC for Left 4 Dead 2, The Passing, will be out tomorrow for both the PC and Xbox 360.

  • Valve Updates Portal, Adds New Achievement, Mystery

    Normally it’s not a big deal when someone updates a game and adds a single new achievement (Transmission Received), but it’s Valve and Portal might be one of my favorite games of all time. I also love a crazy video game mystery, which it turns out this update is. Along with the achievement Valve also […]

  • Team Fortress 2 Adds Crafting

    Valve’s WAR! Update Team Fortress 2 will be adding in a new crafting system. Basically, you find blueprints (or otherwise discover, I guess some are “secret”), smelt all your useless duplicates weapons to scrap parts, and use those to make a weapon you actually want! I honestly think it’s a great way to go, my […]

  • Team Fortress 2 – The War Update

    Team Fortress 2’s latest update will add three new weapons for the Demoman and Soldier as well as new maps and achievements. The interesting thing about this update is that either the Demoman or Soldier will get an additional weapon. Users “vote” who should get the weapon by either playing as the Demoman and killing […]

    It’s Left 4 Dead news day, apparently. At a press conference held in Tokyo, EA announced that a Left 4 Dead 2 demo will be out October 27th. No details on if the demo would be for the PC, Xbox 360, or both.

  • New Left 4 Dead DLC Coming In September

    Sure, Left 4 Dead 2 is coming out in November, but that isn’t stopping Valve from releasing more DLC for the original Left 4 Dead. The new campaign, Crash Course, will be playable in single player, co-op, and versus modes and (adding some continuity to the campaigns) takes place between the No Mercy and Death […]

  • Left 4 Dead Premium Theme Coming Soon

    This month’s Official Xbox Magazine comes packaged with a pretty awesome Left 4 Dead Premium theme. The magazine should be out this Tuesday and will also include four exclusive L4D gamer pictures. I’m probably going to pick it up since Left 4 Dead is pretty much the greatest zombie game ever, besides maybe Zombies Ate […]

    Looks like the upcoming Left 4 Dead expansion, Survival Pack, is going to be free. The expansion is set to be released this spring and introduces a new mode, Survival, and Death Toll and Dead Air as versus maps. [ via Kotaku ]

  • Left 4 Dead Expansion Pack Announced

    Left 4 Dead’s first expansion pack, L4D Survival Pack, is due out this spring. The expansion features two new versus campaigns and a new game play mode, survival. Survival sounds like it could be really awesome, instead of having to run through millions of zombies you sit in a room and wait for them all […]

  • Valve Patches Left 4 Dead on the 360

    It turns out you could cheat in the Xbox 360 version of Left 4 Dead. Like, spawn tons of enemies or use infinite Molotov cocktails. It sounds like fun, I guess, until you’re playing against some guy doing it. Anyway, Valve found out and patched the game today. It’s too bad, I was really looking […]
