Hmmm, maybe Valve are waiting for something like the Occulus Rift to take off? That's just a theory.
They have their own VR headset which is currently the Rifts main competitor.

Re: Half-Life 3 - Should it be a fan-made game?

It's not really that bizarre at all when you look at their business model for the last 5 years, with the last big budget triple A game they put out being Portal 2 in 2011. Now they have three massive games in DOTA 2, CS:GO and TF2, which not only all make tens of millions of dollars a month from in...

Re: Half-Life 3 - Should it be a fan-made game?

I've lost all hope in ever seeing half life 3 during my lifetime.. Wtf are valve playing at? It is bizarre isn't it? The game would be a licence to print money even if it was terrible, it would have massively helped the Steam Box if they'd kept it an exclusive, yet we've heard absolutely nothing It...

Re: E3 2016

Whilst I'm not usually a fan of survival games, We Happy Few was one of the stand out game play demos for me. The alternate 1960's England setting, character design and the premise of the story all look great.

Re: The XBOX ONE / PS4 discussion thread

Seems like my PS4 controller is dead, even with trying to charge in rest mode and seeing the controller pulse orange it'll cut out right away. Also reconfirmed the USBs are fine by charging a mate's Galaxy with it. That's 40 quid for a replacement I didn't want to spend. Might be worth just replaci...

Re: PlayStation 4.5?

Here's the possible graphics card/graphics chip that could end up in "Neo" and also "Scorpion": http://www.pcworld.com/article/3077432/components-graphics/polaris-confirmed-amds-200-radeon-card-will-bring-high-end-graphics-to-the-masses.html Pretty good value for money, it should be able to max out...

Re: Top Gear's Clarkson Axed

The other two blokes were doing some follow-up programme online for BBC3 that I wasn't interested in. I'm hoping that Chris Harris isn't going to be relegated to just presenting on that follow up show as he is the one presenter the car enthusiasts where happy to see get picked up for TG. He's wrote...

Re: Overwatch

^ I do agree that some of the reviews coming out are silly; this is a very good, very fun shooter but it doesn't deserve perfect 10s/5s. A few months ago gamers and reviewers were lambasting Star Wars Battlefront for exactly the same cardinal sins that Overwatch commits. Yet somehow Overwatch not o...

As long as you are playing the objective you are benefiting the team.

The game doesn't expose kill/death ratios or even telegraph your teams kill count in any sort of leader board during a match. It's a very approachable game.

Re: E3 2016

Yea the hardware announcements from Sony and MS should be interesting.

I'm also looking forward to seeing Titanfall 2 and more of Persona 5.
