SCREAM FORTRESS 2014 IS HERE!

SCREAM FORTRESS 2014 IS HERE!
My not so secret obsession/favorite game/secret lover is Team Fortress 2. It’s a brilliantly designed game that takes many of the best elements of both online gaming and sports and combines them into an endlessly re-playable blood orgy.

Yesterday Valve released a video showing a prototype of the Steam Controller – which is designed to be used with the company’s upcoming Steam Machines – being used to play a handful of games.

Half-Life Gets the Stained Glass Treatment
Fans of the Half-Life series will immediately recognize the Lambda logo in this image. But this isn’t just some patch on Gordon Freeman’s uniform, no. This is a handmade work of art – a geeky stained glass masterpiece if you ask me.

HL2 Gravity Gun Replicas Coming to ThinkGeek, Newton’s Laws Still Apply
