Is this... The Valvengers? The Hulk, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America and Thor (poor Thor) all transformed into Valve characters. With the Scout and the Soldier from Team Fortress 2 and a zombie from Left 4 Dead, teaming up with Gordon Freeman, this team probably wouldn't function smoothly.
Rise and shine Mr. Freeman! Your Tearaway remake probably wouldn't survive City 17, but at least it's cute! Tearaway's character editing tool comes in handy if you want to remake yourself or any video game character, which is of course always irresistible.
Lots of reviews have compared Dishonored to Valve's classic Half-Life 2. Both titles enjoy richly-drawn gameworlds with play mechanics that let you get creative. And they've both got lead characters who don't talk. So, you'd figure that Gordon Freeman served as a model for Dishonored's Corvo, right? Not exactly.
Headcrabs, crowbars, and HEV suits all make appearances in this great fanmade Half-Life short, directed by Ian James Duncan and shot for $3,000 at a cottage in Hollywood, according to the folks who made it.
Artist Drew Northcott brings us "Vincent Van Gordon", a Van Gogh inspired portrait of everyone's favorite headcrab killing physicist.
Earlier this year NECA displayed the prototype for their Gordon Freeman action figure at the international Toy Fair in New York. Now, Mr. Freeman is almost ready to come out and play in all his scientific glory.
His finger-point introduction says "yes," but his fidgety shake of the crowbar says "yes, I will kill you now."
In the Half-Life series, there are fictional alien parasitoids called "headcrabs". In Katie's house there is Headcrab Cat, aka Sophie.
This poster, recently slapped up on the walls of some of New York City's subway stations, advertises the next season of AMC's Breaking Bad. But gamers like me who look at it will probably see something else.
Should we consider hardcore PC gamers the hipsters of gaming just because they tend to bring up how PC gaming did everything first whenever an innovative new console title comes out? Maybe commenter Truthtellah has a point in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.
No one is suggesting a future iteration of Half-Life's protagonist will suddenly start talking, like Chief Bromden savoring Juicy Fruit, but Matt Smith, writing at Thunderbolt Games, has an eloquent defense of Gordon Freeman's muteness, why it works so well in this series, and why Freeman is such a beloved character…
This picture (full resolution after the jump) is not a cosplayer getting up to face the day as a Combine Elite soldier from Half-Life 2. It's actually a render of one into a shot of someone's bedroom. It's crazily reminiscent of this gallery, cosplay enthusiasts, in costume, hanging about in everyday settings. (The…
