Where next for Gordon Freeman? We hazard a few educated guesses.
In a world where your usual new releases recommended retail price is $60 and every great leap in graphical prowess seems to lop another few hours off the length, its a refreshing change to be able to say that Valve are being really, really good to you. Not content with remastering the PCs best ever FPS for 360, theyre also packing in two supremely addictive mods in the form of bizarre but compulsive puzzler Portal and Team Fortress 2s insanely violent cartoon
Wed like to suggest that with every passing month we get closer to playing the next chapter in one of the best FPS of all time, but like some sort of cruel tease with a delicious chocolate bar on the end of a piece of string, Valve keeps moving the release date for the re-energized Half-Life 2 further and further away, leaving us scampering about like frothing fools. However, despite the slip from last autumn to this spring to this autumn, our over-eager ears are kept pricked up, and theres the
Despite what you’re no doubt going to hear over the coming weeks, ODST’s Firefight isn’t just Horde from Gears of War 2 in first person. No, it’s Horde, COD Zombies and Valve’s undead co-op shooter wrapped up in one Shock Trooper-shaped package.

Like Marcus Fenix and fellow beefy space chums’ addictive online game, Firefight pits you and three fellow
In their first Halo 3 video documentary before Christmas, our friends at Bungie gave us a tantalizing glimpse into the world of Halo 3: how it will play out, what it will look like and what the spine of the game will be. The results were, not unexpectedly, incredibly exciting... and rather surprising too. Because the central premise for the third game looks to be very, very simple indeed: Brutes.
And lots of
It's apparent that the Brutes are bigger and badder in Halo 3. Here's a quick look at what you're up against when you gotta "finish the
With the release of Tombstone and Desolate, youd think thered be no reason to put down Bungies fantastic frag-fest that is Halo 2. Until of course, the Halo 3 beta starts on the 16th. Being lucky enough to be a part of Bungies Friends and Family scheme that started last Friday across the world, weve been playing Halo 3 now for one whole weekend - and what do we have to say for ourselves?
Simply, Halo 3 multiplayer downright crushes anything weve seen before and here's 5 reasons
With so much E3 hype surrounding Halo 3: ODST's significant solo campaign, are you worried the Chief-less entry has abandoned its original, buzzed-about multiplayer content? Fear not, frag fans. ODST has enough classic and fresh online content to clutter the cargo hold of a Covenant dropship... and then some.
The Rookie spends the first two minutes of ODST having a nap, 60 seconds dropping to Earth and then the next six hours sleeping off the trip. He’ll spend the next few hours wishing he’d woken up a little faster. Frankly, he had it coming.
ODST begins with a mystery and it’s the first of many.
