Cher Wang, the chairwoman of Chinese tech manufacturer, has that she hopes a Half-life video game will be released for her company's virtual-reality headset.
HTC iswith the classic franchise's creator Valve to put its VR hardware on the market, so it's not quite as outlandish a hope as it initially sounds. Still, as we all know, any Half-Life news must be accompanied by the caveat, "probably not going to happen."
Le Minh, former Valve developer and creator of Counter-Strike, has said he's seen concept artwork for the long-sought-after Half-Life 3, admitting it's "kind of public knowledge" Valve is working on it in secret.
He "did see something" belonging to the Half-Life universe, and will "go out on a limb" to say it's Half-Life 3. Minh also saw the "new Left 4 Dead" which "looks great" .
Wow. That's the only possible response to this frankly terrifying feat of gaming from a speedrunning team zooming their way through Valve's venerable sci-fi shooter, Half-Life.
The team, with members quadrazid, CRASH FORT, coolkid, pineapple, YaLTeR, Spider-Waffle and FELip, managed to complete the game entirely in 20 minutes 41 seconds, an astonishing nine minutes quicker than the previous record of 29 minutes, 41 seconds.
Gabe Newell during his presentation at LinuxCon in New Orleans has said Valve will be unveiling their plans for Linux-based hardware soon, as the studio boss cried Linux was the "future of gaming".
Next week they'll discuss their open source platform based on the OS, promising that "none of the proprietary closed platforms" will come close to their dreams.
