We talk Half-Life: Alyx with Valve in the meanest interview ever

Half-Life 2: Episode One - March 26, 2020

It’s taken 13 years, but we finally have a new Half-Life game. It may not be the long-awaited Half-Life 3, but as you’ve probably seen from our Half-Life: Alyx review, Valve’s first foray into virtual reality shows they’re a developer that are still very much at the top of their game. But Half-Life: Alyx isn’t just the work of a talented team of developers. It’s a game that’s ultimately been shaped by the people who have played it – the hundreds, if not thousands of playtesters who helped Valve turn their most famous FPS game into a VR sensation.

All previous Half-Life games are now free on Steam in the run-up to Alyx's release

Half-Life 2: Episode One - January 21, 2020

It's been well over a decade since the release of Half-Life 2: Episode 2, and with Half-Life: Alyx - the enormously long-awaited next instalment in Valve's seminal FPS series - mere months away, there are likely more than a few people in need of a story refresher. Luckily, Valve's on the case, and is making all previous series entries free on Steam for a limited time.

A new Half-Life would have to be VR

Half-Life 2: Episode One - November 19, 2019

Like Doc Brown, I once hit my head and saw the future. I didn't come round in the bathroom having the idea for the Flux Capacitor, but I did bonk my noggin pretty hard in the office games room and sit back, dazed but delighted with what had just happened.

Valve has fixed NPCs not blinking in Half-Life 2

Half-Life 2: Episode One - September 27, 2019

Valve has fixed NPCs not blinking in Half-Life 2, its 15-year-old shooter that may never see a sequel.

Half-Life 2's downtrodden NPCs have been unable to blink for five years, until now

Half-Life 2: Episode One - September 27, 2019

Oof, imagine not blinking for half a decade. My eyes shiver at the thought. But this is what the NPCs of Half-Life 2 have been suffering. The dry eye epidemic was first reported to Valve’s GitHub repo back in 2014 and since then it turns out only a select few have felt the joy of smashing their eyelids shut. But after almost five long years, City 17’s tortured citizens can finally blink again, thanks to a small official update.
