Valve, proprietor of Steam -- which is basically the Walmart of PC digital distribution -- now has its games available on Impulse. Your confusion is as great as ours, but here we are.

These talking GlaDOS Curiosity Spheres probably want to kill you

"Well, you found me. Congratulations. Was it worth it? Because despite your violent behavior, the only thing you've managed to break so far ... is my heart. Maybe you could settle for that and we'll just call it a day? I guess we both know that isn't going to happen."...

Valve explains why Portal's Companion Cube had to die

When we cursed the heavens and asked tearfully why our beloved labradoodle, Cagney, had to die in a horrific snow plow accident, leaving behind her best friend (our maltipoo Lacey), the only answer we received was the stony ambivalence of a silent autumnal sky. When we cursed Valve and asked tearf...

'It was obvious!' ... Meet Team Fortress 2's Spy

We thought Valve had given up introducing us to its Team Fortress 2 cast (considering The Orange Box launched in 2007), but a new video has shown us to be a little too hasty. This time, players get a glimpse into the world of the Spy. Devious, brutal and womanizing ... the Spy is a force to be rec...

Sunday Deals: $15 Orange Box and more

This week, you can view all of the Sunday weekly ad's best Xbox 360 deals after the break and in bulleted form thanks to the fact that there are too many games to list in a paragraph and because we just like to use bullets. Don't worry though, the same amount of care went into organizing this week...

Valve "actively working on" 360 Team Fortress 2 update, still no date

Hey, remember waaaay back in August when Valve announced that an update would be headed to the Xbox 360 version of Team Fortress 2 before the year was out? It loos like we'll be waiting a little longer. Valve updated the world on the status of the update in a recent (and short) entry on the offici...

Holidaze 2008: Live in the past, it's cheaper

Bad news, everybody: 2008 is the new 2007. Those of us lucky enough to have survived last year's unyielding flood of exquisite games expected the new holiday to provide some respite -- perhaps an influx of blessedly mediocre games -- but alas, our wallets are once again tugged in every $60 directio...

Holidaze 2008: Live in the past, it's cheaper (Page 2)

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare What we said then: "Perhaps the most surprising thing about the game is how few actual revolutionary concepts are contained within. It selects existing game design tools, hones them to practical perfection and creates what is, in our opinion, the military shoot...
