Well bless their heart! The kind folks at Valve (the people behind Counterstrike, Portal and Left4Dead series) have made one of their ‘big classics’, Team Fortress 2, free to play on both Mac and PC. Head on to Steam and you’ll find TF2 being the latest addition to the “Costs $0″ section! Yay!
As if existing Call of Duty games aren’t action packed enough already, we’ve heard from an interview article today that Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg is saying Sledgehammer Games (who is still developing Modern Warfare 3) is focused on MW3… though that hints the original Action (or Call of Duty third person title… or Call of Duty MMO) COD game that Sledgehammer was supposed to develop, may be just ‘delayed’ but still in the pipeline, compared to being dropped completely, seeing [...]
LA Noire Logo
Rockstar Games, the guys behind LA Noire which was released in May, have announced that a PC version of the mafia-themed third-person game is in the works and scheduled for ‘Fall 2011′.

Still, we’ll hold our [...]

An official trailer has just been put online ahead of E3 2011, showcasing next year’s multi-platform Tomb Raider title. The game, named just Tomb Raider, is a reboot of the series (Kinda like how the makers of The Fast and The Furious probably ran out of names and just used ‘Fast and Furious’ for the fourth movie), will continue to feature the game’s traditional protagonist Lara Croft and has an expected due date of Q3 2012… that’s more than a [...]
