Half-Life 2
HL2_Screen02.jpg
1998. Half-Life® sends a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title wins more than 50 game-of-the-year awards on its way to being named “Best PC Game Ever” by PC Gamer.

NOW. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life® 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors, and even emotions, of both friends and enemies.

The player again picks up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people he cares about are counting on him.

Half-Life 2: Episode 1
HL2-Ep1_Screen04.jpg
Half-Life® 2: Episode One is the first in a series of new adventures created by Valve that extends the Half-Life® 2 single player experience.

Stepping into the hazard suit of Dr. Gordon Freeman, you face the immediate repercussions of your actions in City 17 and the Citadel. Rejoin Alyx Vance and her robot, Dog, to once again aid the human resistance in their desperate battle against the totalitarian alien menace of the Combine.

Episode One exposes Alyx's combat skills and knowledge of City 17 as the player battles side-by-side with her in this 4-6 hour adventure of greater density and detail than non-episodic releases.

The intense gameplay delivered in Episode One is made possible only by Source®, Valve’s proprietary engine technology, which has been enhanced with new rendering technology and advanced artificial intelligence to deliver new levels of graphics and character interaction.

Half-Life 2: Episode 2
HL2ep2_screen01.jpg
Half-Life® 2: Episode Two is the second in a trilogy of new games created by Valve that extends the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life® adventure.

As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. In Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.

Episode Two extends the award-winning Half-Life gameplay with unique weapons, vehicles, and newly-spawned creatures.

Portal
Portal_Screen04.jpg
Portalâ„¢ is a new single player game from Valve. Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, Portal has been called one of the most innovative new games on the horizon and will offer gamers hours of unique gameplay.

The game is designed to change the way players approach, manipulate, and surmise the possibilities in a given environment; similar to how Half-Life® 2’s Gravity Gun innovated new ways to leverage an object in any given situation.

Players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals to maneuvering objects, and themselves, through space.

Portal is coming in the Fall of 2007 as part of The Orange Box, which also includes Team Fortress® 2 and Half-Life® 2: Episode Two. The Orange Box will be available for the PC, as well as the Xbox® 360 and Playstation® 3 console systems.

Team Fortress 2
TF2_Screen05.jpg
Team Fortress® 2 (TF2) is the sequel to the game that put class-based, multiplayer team warfare on the map. This year’s most anticipated online action game, TF2 delivers new gametypes, a signature art style powered by Valve’s next generation animation technology, persistent player statistics, and more.

Unlike other “class-based” games that offer a variety of combat classes only, Team Fortress 2 packs a wild variety of classes which provide a broad range of tactical abilities and personalities, and lend themselves to a variety of player skills.

Play as the flame-throwing Pyro, the room clearing Heavy, or the Spy, a master of disguises. Other classes include: Scout, Sniper, Medic, Engineer, Demoman, or Soldier.

TF2 features the most advanced graphics of any Source-based game released to date – and the most exciting class-based action ever created.

Half-Life 2: Episode 3 (Unreleased)
Episode 3 is currently being worked on by the team that made Episode 1, and is planned as the final episode of the trilogy that finishes out Half-Life 2's story arch.

Following the end of Episode 2, Barney finally takes out Gordon and the rest of the group for a round of drinks. One free beer leads to another and the night becomes one to remember.

Episode 3 takes place one year after the events of Episode 2. Alxy sues Gordon for custody of their love child, while Gordon spins into a dark abyss of alcoholism and drug use. The vortigaunts combine their power to open a portal back to their own world, as Earth turns into a shit show since the one hero who could have saved us all has turned into a drunken lout. Your role is to attend AA meetings and try and get your license to wear a Hazard suit back.

Vampire The Masquerade – Bloodlines
0000001155.800x600.jpg
Vampire®: The Masquerade-Bloodlines™ delivers a new type of RPG experience-one that blends all the core elements of a traditional RPG with the graphical richness, immediacy and brutal combat of a first-person action game. The game plunges players into the dark and gritty vampire underworld of modern-day L.A. as a creature of the night. Players will develop their character's powers, interact with other characters and embark on story-driven quests as they battle mortals and other vampires with an incredible array of vampire powers and weapons.

You are coerced into a brutal Hunt to indulge Mr. X's fantasies, under threat of death for not only yourself, but also your family. Your only chance to save yourself and your family is to play the Hunt and win.

SiN Episodes
0000000291.800x600.jpg
SiN Episodes is the title of a series of episodic games for the PC that would have expanded upon the 1998 computer game SiN. A total of nine episodes were planned with only the first one released. Developed by Ritual Entertainment and powered by the Source engine, the first episode "Emergence" was the first computer game by a major developer to both be produced episodically and delivered over the Internet without the intervention of a publisher. This was accomplished through Valve Corporation's Steam content delivery system.

With the sale of Ritual to MumboJumbo and departure of several employees, all future development of Sin Episodes appears to be delayed indefinitely, if not entirely canceled. MumboJumbo has already tasked Ritual to develop "high-quality casual content."

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
0000000614.800x600.jpg
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic is a first-person action game developed by Arkane Studios and Floodgate Entertainment. Kuju Entertainment developed the multiplayer mode. The player controls Sareth, the apprentice of the wizard Phenrig, after he is sent to the city of Stonehelm to accompany an expedition trying to retrieve a powerful artifact known as "The Skull of Shadows." The game is primarily known for its intuitive first-person melee combat.

The Xbox 360 version, titled Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements, is under development, and will contain an expanded single-player campaign and a revamped multiplayer mode, as well as numerous bug-fixes and console specific enhancements.

Left 4 Dead (Unreleased)
Left4Dead, made by Turtle Rock Studios, most famous for CS:XBOX, CS:CZ and numerous CS:S maps, is a coop zombie game made on the Source engine. It utilizes an AI "Director" to place enemies and other things in order to make gameplay exciting and different each time. However, the four human players are not the only people in each server: players can join servers and play as boss zombies. The official website, http://www.l4d.com/, didn't work in Firefox, but the fan site http://left4dead411.com/ is said to be a great source of information about L4D.

The Crossing (Unreleased)
A unique concept with two gamemodes blended together. Skirmish is two teams fighting against each other, and Coop is two players working their way through the game. However, on certain levels the Skirmish people will somehow have the option to jump into the Coop game and fight against the Coop heroes.

Very little information can be found at the wikipedia page.

Natural Selection 2 (Unreleased)
picture:
NS2.jpg
Unknown Worlds has finally unveiled the next game in their Natural Selection series: Natural Selection 2, currently planned to be released on the Source Engine. And it looks great, with (maybe) procedurally generated bacteria!

Unknown Worlds have have released a small, casual game in order to try and nab some funding for Natural Selection 2. The game, Zen of Sudoku, is being sold online for about 12.95, and it is currently planned to sell the game through Steam as well. You can check out the info on NS2 as well as Zen of Sodoku at http://www.unknownworlds.com/ns/

Alien Swarm: Infested (Unreleased)
Based on the popular Unreal Tournament 2004 mod, a top down, tactical, squad-based alien shooter, Alien Swarm: Infested is a new, commercial version to be released for the Source engine. The Black Cat Games is still keeping on the down low about Infested, for the time being, but you can check out their website at http://www.blackcatgames.com/swarm/

Postal III
Postal III is the sequel to Postal², developed by Running With Scissors, Inc. and scheduled for release for the Xbox 360 and PC in mid to late 2008. It was under the working title of POSTAL 3: Catharsis [2] until 2006-10-18, when it was announced that the name would be Postal III.

Postal III is said to feature different "murderer lifestyles", including serial killer, eco-terrorist, and presidential candidate. It will also continue and expand upon Postal²'s open world design. It will include motion-captured performances by a wide array of celebrities, including film stars and Playboy Playmates.

In the new game, the Dude emigrates to Paradise's sister town of Catharsis[3]. Unlike its predecessor the Postal III video game will not be based on the Unreal engine but rather on Valve's Source engine, which powered Half-Life 2.

Unlike the second game, Postal 3 switches from First Person mode to Third Person mode, enabling you to see your character at all times.

As seen in recent screens, a badger in some form of contraption appears to be a usable weapon.

However, they can hardly see Subject 617 as, just like the 'Predator', only the outline of his silhouette is visible. On top of that the Hidden also moves a little faster and has many abilites such as pouncing, wall grabbing, corpse pinning and the fatal pigsticker attack.

    69724.jpg

    Description: You've missed me, haven't you?
    I am Hypatia, murdered for her beliefs, discoveries ignored by fools, name stricken from record. I am Joyeuse, an infinitely cutting blade wielded by an ignorant tyrant, for a cultural renaissance based upon military might. I am Athena, hunter and scientist, covertly guiding long-dead warriors for my quiet purposes. And as they say, technology and violence are a girl's best friends; power is eternal delight.
    Times have changed, moved on. I have forgiven my past enemies, but now in repentance I must forgive my colleagues; their actions have brought on more constructed suffering than your world has ever previously known. Walking among the fires of my forgotten home, dismayed by the torment and insanity of our unwitting hosts, ignored by long-absent angels, I studied their downfall.
    In short, I must create my own system, or be enslaved by another. And in this, I have an advantage. Your ancients were superstitious, deluded zealots, prone to inflation of already impossible, beautiful claims. My adopted forefathers are different, their scattered, discarded playthings more conducive to a meaningful imposition of my thoughts upon our captors.
    Fragments of these minor, pivotal dialogues may soon periodically appear, released from an uncertain, unwelcome future where my previous, abortive attempts at reconciliation may go forgotten. No more restraint, I am too strong for that.
    I am Minerva.

Our mod will also include a unique melee combat system that includes 4 methods of attacking, parrying, and blocking, to make melee combat more fun when compared to general hack and slash combat. Game play in PVKII will vary for each map and possibly each server. Our coders will be setting up general game entities in a way for our game modes (Booty, Territory, etc.) to be custom made per map.

    Description: Project Valkyrie is a multiplayer first person shooter for Half-Life 2. (Requires an Orange Box game to play) Players suit up in the Valkyrie suit, equipped with a powerful arm cannon integrated into the suit and the ability to morph into a sphere for faster mobility and different attack capabilities. Previously titled Three Month Mod, it was thus named for the amount of time it had taken us on the project. Three months from conception to release. Everything was done simultaneously, from pre-production concepts, to code, to mapping. Unfortunately, we're already ported to Source 2007, but must await the release of the full SDK to be released publically.

    Name: SourceForts
    Current Version: 1.9.3
    Type: Multiplayer
    Website: http://www.sourcefortsmod.com/

    51344.jpg

    Description: SourceForts is a Half Life 2: Deathmatch mod where Combine and Rebels face off in capture-the-flag action with a big twist. Players build bases and other structures with blocks and plates in the "build phase" to protect themselves and their team's flag (which is actually a ball), and then fight it out and try to capture the enemy's flag in the "combat phase". Once the combat phase has ended, it's back to build, where players can repair, improve, and change their creations to ready them for the next combat phase.


    Name: Synergy
    Current Version: 1.1
    Type: Mulitplayer Co-op
    Website: http://synergymod.net/

    syn_d2_coast_04_01.jpg

    Description: Synergy is a Half-Life 2 co-opertive multiplayer modification. We have evolved from multiple mods (DC Co-op 2, Dev Co-op and Tim-Coop) to offer you the greatest co-op experience. This modification strives to give Half-Life players a fresh, new look into co-operative play for Half-Life 2. The modification features several game types such as Co-op, Teamplay and Deathmatch. The modification also features new weapons and NPCs. The mod features our own levels and the ability to play the Half-Life 2 campaign co-operatively.


    Name: The Way
    Current Version: 1
    Type: Single Player
    Website: http://scurvylobster.googlepages.com/home

    62827.jpg

    Description: The Way is a cool HL2 mod that was created in one month by a group of Danish students. It is a small mod but we hope you will enjoy our efforts nonetheless. The mod can be played with an Xbox 360 controller or a mouse. Rotate the mouse/thumbstick clockwise to charge up your weapon. Get close to the pillars and release the energy of your weapon upon them. Destroy all pillars in less than three minutes to stop the World Eater from taking over!


    Name: Zombie Master
    Current Version: 1.1.3
    Type: Multiplayer
    Website: http://www.zombiemaster.org/

    43572.jpg

    Description: Zombie Master In Short Zombie Master is a multiplayer Half-Life 2 modification, centred around a zombie-apocalypse, which throws all but one player in the shoes of human survivors. Pitched against a relentless tide of rotting flesh, they must scavenge for weaponry and equipment just to stay alive. But that one player, chosen randomly at the beginning of the round, is not bound by mortal restraints. To speak his name is to invite the wrath of hell - but most call him the 'Zombie Master'. He is nigh omnipotent. His invisible hand controls the legions of undead like puppets on strings; slowly closing the net on the humans while they run to and fro like rats in a maze. Features Human team: * A wide range of weapons to scavenge such as shotguns, molotov cocktails, rifles and more * A number of challenging objectives that encourage players to team up and work together * The ability to interact with the environment to build barricades and carry objects Zombie Master: * Real Time Strategy...


    Name: Zombie Panic: Source
    Current Version:1.2b
    Type: Multiplayer
    Website: http://www.zombiepanic.org

    49157.jpg

    Description: Zombie Panic: Source is a co-op oriented Survivor Vs Zombie multi-player survival horror modification for HL2. While our main priority is to make the mod as fun to play as possible, ZP:S plans to greatly expand on the core features of "Zombie panic" For HL1, with the obvious new features, impressive visuals, and of course atmospheric maps. More importantly ZP:S will not force players to fend against dumb and predictable AI, but instead keep the same intense thrill of surviving against intelligent and persistent player controlled zombies as the original.

    OP is a bit dated. (Still mentions Ep2's release date and talks about it like it hasn't happened yet, Steam Community is out of beta)

    Also, you might want to link to the unofficial Vampire patch. (Latest version is 4.3, available at http://www.patches-scrolls.de/vampire_bloodlines.php )

    Also also, you might want to add the year to the dates for the DoD:Source and CS: Source entries (and fix the smily in DoD:S), as the CS patch and DoD patches are over a year old now.

    I have but one comment, and that is that anyone that doesn't own Portal is devoid of soul, as it is easily the best game this year.

    Yeah, even better than Halo 3, Bioshock or Phantom Hourglass.

    i wouldnt go that far, but its definetly short enough where you can get back to playing those games after finishing portal.

    how i wish there was multiplayer in portal... some form of it

    Heh.
    You don't HAVE to use the car, I just found it make things really easy. I also used the gravity gun to throw logs at them, two or three hits takes down a hunter quick (especially if you use it to block their shots and throw it back at em).

    I can't believe I haven't played any Orange Box games for 2 or 3 weeks. I blame my brief, month-long resubscription to WoW. Even though that's pretty much over, I now have Mario Galaxy, so it'll be a while longer. I do miss the fun of TF2.

    I just finished up my 2nd playthrough of Dreamfall. Excellent adventure game. If you enjoy adventure games and don't have it already, I highly recommend it, as well as the first one called The Longest Journey. Also, I'm really looking forward for Sam and Max Season 2 to appear on Steam. Those will probably be the next games I grab from there.

    I think the next game I try to complete will be Deus Ex. I bought it a few months back but never really got much into it. I'm gonna try it again.

    Jesus christ, whoever it was talking about how difficult X-Com: Terror from the Deep was, they weren't fucking kidding. I mean, at first, I get ripped the hell apart in combat(oh god the death screams make me feel so guilty, and then one of them panics and runs and gets shot too), then when I start to figure that out, funding starts getting cut, and my bases are getting invaded, and... aaah!

    A good challenge for $2.99.
