You know what the world needs? Half-Life 3! Are we getting it? Probably not anytime soon, if ever. Until then, we fans will just have to locate the nearest corner and assume the fetal position while the almighty Valve broods and ponders their potential creation. Good news though if you’re looking for a temporary fix. Lambda Wars has just entered beta, and it’s completely free and on Steam!

Evolve is one of my most anticipated games coming out next year. It features insane multiplayer action and all kinds of unique elements. However, no matter how cool a game is, people always want to modify it and make it even more awesome. But will that be possible with Evolve?

The official announcement for Just Cause 3 had me beyond tickled pink. This is a franchise that bathes in the insane - riding on jets, turning parachuting into flying and a grappling hook from the gods are all on the table. I'm almost certain that's all going to be back for the third entry, but a fan favourite mode won't be making its way to the sequel just yet.

Portal 2 is easily one of my top games of all time. Valve really worked some magic, turning a “simple” puzzle game into one of the most entertaining narratives I’ve ever experienced. Story aside, the gameplay was also addictive, with the portal gun offering interesting mechanics. I could always do with some more, and it looks like I am getting my wish.

I miss skateboarding games. There used to be something cool about watching my custom skater pull off gravity-defying tricks on a small screen back in the boom of those EXTREME-sports games. They all eventually died though and left only a few hardcore fans to keep on 1080-Benihananing. And one small group is picking up where Activision left off.

Do you happen to have a large pile of games waiting to be downloaded on your Steam playlist? Then this bit of news won’t help you get through it any quicker. Half Life is 15 years old this week, and to celebrate, a remake of the game from a dedicated group of gamers in on the way at long last. A remake that’ll be up for sale on Steam.

If you’ve ever seen me play Dark Souls, you’d agree that I completely suck at the game. On the other end of the spectrum though, are people who have mastered it completely, owning it six ways from Sunday. And if you’re playing the game on PC, then prepare to die all over again. With this mod.

Damn Xbox One, I’ve got to be honest, I’m liking this new direction of yours. First we get friendlier with gamers, now we get news that the console will be friendly to developers as well? Slow down son! Wait what’s that? There’s the potential for modding as well? I think I may have just out-gasped myself.

Hey, it’s not just the PC master race that has the time to rip the motherboard out of a PC tower and throw into a case of pure hipster-killing coolness. Consoles have also been on the modding scene for years now, with everything ranging from retro to current on that specific chopping block. Here’s our top ten of moulded plastic and cartridge entry ports.

With DayZ going solo and moving away from the modding scene, brand new opportunities are opening up for the cult zombie apocalypse survival game. Content is one such market that is ripe for exploration, and possibly exploitation. Although in the case of this standalone, it might be a more substantial enhancement to the game that’ll have more free than paid-for content. Every week apparently.

Since it’s a slow news day of note, and Geoff has decided to go attend a DSTV launch party for My Little Pony while hammered out of his mind on Jack Daniels and Bacardi, I’m throwing this little feature into the ring. PC cases! Customised! And they don’t look like crap! Enjoy! Exclamation marks!

You can play, you can dislike a game, you can even whinge about it, but the one thing that you can’t do? Tinker around on it and make the experience better not only for you, but for everyone else. That’s what happened to Battlefield 3 a few weeks ago, as a mod that was released, which allowed players to make the game look more dynamic and colourful, soon found itself banned. Except now, that option is back, but with DICE approval.

Eight years, numerous delays, multiple re-imaginings and several instances of people raising their hands in the air and shouting “Dude, enough, we’re like totally tired of waiting!”, and Black Mesa is finally sort of finished. And headed our way, very soon.
