Tuesday, July 13, 2010 9:07:54 AM GMT
Valve's steadfast assimilation of its catalog of games on Steam into The Mac Collective continues with Day of Defeat Source, its WWII-based mod. Thanks to Steam Play, those of you who picked it up already for Windows will be able to play it on Mac instantly. (more)

Left 4 Dead 2's latest mutation is nothing but swords

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2594 days, 6 hours, 51 minutes ago
Sunday, July 11, 2010 8:38:13 AM GMT
The official Left 4 Dead 2 blog has posted the latest mutation to Valve's great zombie apocalypse simulation and it's ... swords. All swords, all the time. Hacking, slashing, slicing, dicing, piercing, thrusting -- you name it, you'll be doing it against the undead horde. (more)

The evil genius of Portal 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2614 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:47:04 AM GMT
Portal 2 is going to be amazing. Do you know how I know this? Because a mere fifteen minute presentation of the game had a room full of cynical, jaded, miserable game "journalists" laughing out loud. That's what Portal is all about as far as I'm concerned. Yes, the puzzles are fantastic, the central gimmick is unique, but it's the comedy that really sets Portal apart. (more)

Team Fortress 2 Deployed To Mac, Earbuds For Everyone*!

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2624 days, 9 hours, 51 minutes ago
Friday, June 11, 2010 5:38:53 AM GMT
Mac versus PC. The cross platform war is officially on, Team Fortress 2 style. Slip in your earbuds, Mac owners, because the team-based multiplayer shooter is now available for download. For free. Valve is kicking off Team Fortress 2's war between the latte sipping Mac snobs who spent way too much on their computers and the filthy Windows gamers who wouldn't know good design if it was buried deep within their system's registry. Or something. And it's doing so by letting everyone play TF2 this weekend fo... (more)

Team Fortress 2 on Mac kicks off with free weekend, 50% off sale

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2624 days, 10 hours, 16 minutes ago
Friday, June 11, 2010 5:13:54 AM GMT
It turns out that Valve's completely opaque hinting yesterday referred to a Mac release of Team Fortress 2! If you have an inclination toward team-based, cartoony/violent FPS action, head over to Steam now and enjoy the newly OSX-compatible game. Valve has provided some decent motivation to do so quickly, if fun isn't enough: if you play on a Mac before June 14, you'll get some in-game earbuds like the ones sported by the blue "Mac" team in the above video. Oh, and you can also play for free this weeken... (more)

Team Fortress 2 available on Mac Steam tomorrow

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2625 days, 7 hours ago
Thursday, June 10, 2010 8:29:19 AM GMT
The Team Fortress 2 blog has revealed the impending arrival of one of Valve's biggest games to the Mac platform. Tomorrow, Mac-owning gamers will be able to join the Team Fortress 2 ... team. Well, Valve didn't even confirm that it is Team Fortress 2 that is being released tomorrow. Sure, it was on the Team Fortress 2 blog, and the post was topped by the above image of Team Fortress 2 characters, but really it could be any game whose title rhymes with "Speem Gortress." (more)

Rumor: Half-Life 2 announcement teased by 'Freeman' art [update]

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2629 days, 6 hours, 55 minutes ago
Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:34:14 AM GMT
There's a substantial number of games we've been hoping to see unveiled at E3 later this month, but our desire for the announcement of one game in particular easily overshadows all others: Half-Life 2: Episode 3. We've tempered our expectations for such an announcement after being disappointed at trade shows for like, a decade -- but if the teaser image posted after the jump is legit, our wait might just be coming to an end in a little over a week.

We don't hate 'I Hate Mountains,' a fan-made Left 4 Dead campaign

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2629 days, 6 hours, 57 minutes ago
Sunday, June 06, 2010 8:32:46 AM GMT
We've seen the Left 4 Dead SDK be used to create some truly impressive, zombie-infested levels, but this one might just take the cake. Three modders recently published a full-length, five-chapter campaign for Valve's original Zombocalypse survival sim, titled "I Hate Mountains" -- a quote from the game's lovable, vested contrarian, Francis.

Valve cancels Portal 2 press event at E3 and it's amazing

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2633 days, 7 hours, 37 minutes ago
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 7:52:55 AM GMT
I'm deep in E3 planning, so when any one event gets canceled or shuffled, I'm not entirely pleased. But Valve, it can do whatever it wants. See, it had a Portal 2 press conference event taking place on Monday, June 14. Now it's not happening; it's been canceled. Valve says that it has replaced the event with a "surprise," but doesn't go into any details. I'll find out, I'm sure -- I'm already penciled in to see Portal 2 (and whatever else they'd like to show me -- begin speculation now) behind-closed-do... (more)

I am legend: Left 4 Dead 2's 'Last Man on Earth' mutation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2636 days, 8 hours, 10 minutes ago
Sunday, May 30, 2010 7:19:07 AM GMT
No co-op teammates, no AI bots, and no Common Infected. Just you as the only Survivor left racing toward the safehouse before Special Infected get a chance to jump you. This is the newest weekly mutation for Left 4 Dead 2, "Last Man on Earth." It sounds -- more than any other game mode before it -- super risky, which is exactly what Valve should be aiming for. In my mind, it can play out one of two ways: it's either going to be painfully frustrating or tense beyond all belief. (more)

Latest Left 4 Dead 2 mutation: more like Left 1 Dead

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2637 days, 7 hours, 28 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:01:33 AM GMT
Valve's latest "mutation" gametype for the Left 4 Dead 2 "The Passing" DLC takes three survivors out of the equation. "Last Man on Earth" is a single-player mode in which the player is the only Survivor left in the world, and must face nothing but Special Infected without the help of other players or even bots. In other words, it might has well have been called "The Player is Murdered Immediately." (more)

Man Spends Six Months Plotting Murder Of Counter-Strike Rival

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2637 days, 7 hours, 40 minutes ago
Saturday, May 29, 2010 7:49:03 AM GMT
A Counter-Strike player in France has spent six months plotting a revenge attack against a man who beat him in an in-game knife fight. His eventual revenge was not in-game. 20 year-old Julien Barreaux, from Cambrai, had his Counter-Strike character "knifed" in a game late last year against another man, known only as "Mikhael". Enraged at this blight against his talents, Barreaux spent six months tracking him down in the real world. (more)

Left 4 Dead 2 gets permanent Realism Vs mode, new weekly Mutation

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2658 days, 8 hours, 18 minutes ago
Saturday, May 08, 2010 7:11:26 AM GMT
You guys really liked that Realism Vs mode in Left 4 Dead 2, huh? Lucky for you, Valve's Left 4 Dead Blog passes along word that it's been made into a permanent game type. Valve reports the final results of the in-game poll show 68 percent of those voting wanted it to be permanent, while only 21 percent of those voting didn't want it hanging around -- the final 11 percent really had no opinion. Apathy doesn't help kill zombies, people. (more)

Screenshots emerge of Steam Linux client, BeOS wonders if it's next

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2662 days, 8 hours, 12 minutes ago
Tuesday, May 04, 2010 7:17:17 AM GMT
There's some old adage referring to smoke and fire meant to explain this phenomenon, but frankly, we're too focused on the promise of the future to go and look it up. Merely weeks after the Steam for Mac beta proved that Linux support may be in the works, along comes this: two glorious screenshots proving as much. 'Course, nothing much about this situation has changed, but having pictorial evidence that a Steam client exists in some stage for Linux is a boon for hopefuls. (more)

Steam for Mac opens a portal to May 12, steps through

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2666 days, 8 hours, 1 minute ago
Friday, April 30, 2010 7:28:54 AM GMT
Valve promised that Steam on Mac would arrive in April. As you're no doubt aware, April is nearly over. Does that make Steam... vaporware? Not quite. Put away the Caruso sunglasses for two more weeks, because our friends at Joystiq just received a one-line email reading: "Valve today announced the public release of Steam for the Mac is May 12. Please stay tuned for more information." Oh well -- at least you're not waiting for Steam on Linux, and you can always stock up on Razer peripherals while you endu... (more)
