Review: Portal (~4 hours)

This is a game, as I understand it, that was a concept created by students at DigiPen (a college for game development), and Valve Software was so impressed that they hired the team to make this game at Valve. 493 more words


Review: Half-Life 2: Episode Two (~7 hours)

Valve fixed a lot of what was broken in Episode One with Episode Two. First and foremost, the combat is fun again, perhaps the most fun combat in all Half-Life 2 games. 458 more words

Review: Half-Life: Blue Shift (~3 hours)

Both Half-Life: Opposing Force, and Half-Life: Blue Shift were developed by Gearbox Software before we knew much about them. Gearbox would go on to make Borderlands, which was something of a hit and which I personally enjoyed. 400 more words
