It’s Saturday, and since the weekend usually can’t be relied upon to produce any real news, I like to fill the gaps with fun stuff, like these three incredible fan-made videos inspired by Half-Life, Portal and Mortal Kombat. They’re all pretty great, but I’ll leave it up to you to decide which is best. Feel free to let me know which film you most enjoyed in the comments! READ MORE
I’ll try my hardest not to start violently sobbing while I write this, but you can be sure that as soon as I hit ‘Publish’ I’m immediately going to turn off the lights, lie down on my floor and weep silently while singing to myself until the bad thoughts go away. In case you were hoping for some news regarding any of Valve’s unannounced titles like Half-Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3 and Portal 3, it sounds like none of them will be making an appearance at E3 next month. According to Valvetime.net, the disheartening news came from an e-mail exchange with Gabe Newell, who said “We’re not announcing anything. Really. We are not announcing Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3.” I’m positive next month will be chock-full of incredible reveals, but this has definitely dampened my mood a bit. How about you? Which of these highly anticipated sequels were you most looking forward to hearing from? READ MORE
Big thanks to Jonathan Barkan for the heads up on this. It’s short film like this, made by no more than a few friends with a true love for video games, that make me wish there were more actual movies as good as this. Video game movies that is.
