Update: Valve already released this third video, much more interesting this time.
Update 2: As expected the 4th video is now available, with the 5th and last one to be released tomorrow I guess.
Update 3: Fifth video online.

It looks very good. I guess It will be one of the best games in the first quarter next year.
I think first quarter will be the best time for xbox 360. I'm looking forward to Bioshock, Lost Planet, Assasins Creed, Alan Wake, Medal of Honor and Too human.

HALO 3 wont be out until the end of 2007 , HL2 will be released around Feb 2007 and for $60 it will include HL2 , HL2 Episode 1 , Episode 2 , Portal and Team Fortress 2.

There's also Mass Effect remember, a whole bunch of titles to play. :)

Xbox 360, Fantastic machine.

oh and just in case you hadn't heard, this Christmas belongs to "Wii60" as the European launch of the PS3 has been delayed again, until at least March 2007!

By the way I've just read PS3 won't be released in Europe till March 2007.

Oooooh...... HL2 is good but Q1 2007 has Mass Effect(yeah confirmed) and BIA3. Both games are really crazy you know.

This one reminds me of the bugs in Lost Planet, complete with yellow glowing weak spot! :D

When is the streaming up again?

Saw this two weeks ago or something, really old. But still awesome. The only thing I like right now are those blue bipedal things.

I'd like to know too, this is getting me sooooooooooooooooo mad.

I seriously don't like the art direction of Half-Life. Some enemies and guns just look bloody cheap! Just look at this copy of a handicaped E.T. in video 2, that follows you crushing some bugs taken from Starship Troopers.
Commented on 2006-09-06 16:07:07
yay the streamings back :)

Behind Halo 3, this is my most anticipated title. It's a right bummer that it ain't coming out during the holiday (or, knowing Valve, February for that matter ;) .)

The number of twos in the post's title blows my mind.
Commented on 2006-09-06 18:33:20
yep not only did the ps3 get dropped from europe till 2007, US and Jap are getting a combined 500k units only at launch lol...

I actually love how HL2 Ep2 is shaping up it wasnt on my list of games i wanted before but it recently definitly became one, especially since the whole portal system :)

@ wolant, HEY that's kind of wrong :)

The entire Half-Life 2-triology isn't just "another FPS".
It's T-H-E FPS.
It's the definition of how the FPS-genre should look like.

If the port and the controls will be good; then we got ourselfs one of the best-spent hours in our short lifes, for a cheap price.

Don't complain... and btw, don't forget Portals and Team Fortress 2 ;)

Thanks for these. By the way Blim, do you have any higher-quality pics of the DMC4 scans?

Commented on 2006-09-07 03:30:19
Did you scans those yourself? Thanks a lot!
Commented on 2006-09-07 04:46:16
I don't know if I can link an outside web-site (thats the reason i didnt in the first post- i wasnt trying to steal someone's credit) but this ( http://forums.e-mpire.com/showthread.php?t=61407 ) is where I found those scans.

Still nothing about Counter-Strike Source though for the xbox 360?
Commented on 2006-09-07 13:07:16
This will be a good game, nice trailer.

I wish that after half life 2, they would have started half life 3 and not released anything up until 3. These Episodes are kindof lame i think. But the idea that you get HL2, EP1, EP2, team fotress, and the other thing, is pretty sweet.

Imean, IDK if its me or what, but i know that the upgrade from HL2 to HL2: Lost Coast, was barely noticeable, aside from minimal normal mapping, and HDR. To me, this game isnt improving enough. Each Episode that comes out should have better and better graphics.

About the game

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (6 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (5 Hours ago)

  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (8 Hours ago)
