Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Steam wants your money: Shattered Horizon freekend.

    I think I'll definitely replay HL2 and the Episodes once the date on Ep 3 is finalized.

    This Alien Breed game would benefit me more if it actually had graphics options I could tune down.

    Shattered Horizon is pretty fun, until some guys try to bog it down into a sniper fest.

    i always liked snipers more


    usually because i died within the first 10 secs of spawning in any fps i ever played...

    i think the one game i liked playing sniper the most was soldier of fortune 2. that was fun

    I noticed it sways like a mother when you first scope in, it takes long enough to stabilize that there is a good chance for your target to have made it to cover. I like that.

    None of the CoD quickscoping bullshit.

    Dear Subject Name Here,

    Aperture Science is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with Valve to announce the gala CANCELLATION of the June 14 Portal 2 event at the Regal Theater. The event will be replaced by a surprise. And even though the cancellation of the event certainly counts as a surprise, we are pleased to further announce that the cancellation of the event is not THE surprise. However, per International treaties regarding the definition of the word "surprise", of which both Aperture Science and Valve are signatories, the time, date and content of the actual surprise will only become available as you experience the surprise.

    If you'd like to ask fruitless questions about the E3 Portal 2 surprise or, more fruitfully, schedule an appointment to attend a Portal 2 screening at the Valve booth during E3, please contact Valve's Special Envoy to Surprises, Doug Lombardi.

    Thank you for <>

    PS: The surprising record scratch is also not the surprise.


    could it be????

    Notice they say "E3 Portal 2 surprise." It's possible we're getting worked up over nothing.

    Or it's possible it means "E3/Portal 2 surprise."

    They were doing so well with the episodes

    I mean, did they just get developer/writers block or something? Did the left4deads really take up so much manpower to get them so far behind?

    I think they're being overly ambitious. Iterating themselves crazy. Also, apparently working in a character that uses sign language?

    I seem to recall hearing that they were trying to implement the portal gun for Gordan himself to use in Ep 3. Designing the relatively open levels that we're used to in HL that wouldn't be totally broken by the gun would certainly be a challenge.

    i remember reading about that on kotaku a long time ago

    the thought of taunting enemies while teleporting my ass in infinite loops still makes me giddy.

    not only that, but programming the AI to appropriately detect, move and shoot through ever shifting portals...

    it gives me a headache just thinking about it

    I want Gabe to come out on stage and say:

    Ya'll got no love for dogs
    so just chill
    till the next Episode

    and then he and Doug Lombardi lay down some fat rhymes and blaze some chronic.

    well, he'll already own it when he buys orange box

    it's just that there will then be an apple client available for him to dl as well once it's out
    as far as I know, they don't make you buy separate mac and windows clients for any of their games
