Wow I though this mod I'm about to talk about "The Revenge" which in it's moddb blog post there's only 2 one from last year and now so this project has been MIA for awhile but they have a lot of content for us but before I get into that lets get caught up with the story of the mod since again it's been a year...
(From Moddb page)The Revenge is a first person game based on Half-Life universe. The main character is Anton Logov. He has to get out of the city in order to deliver something important for the Resistance Forces. It would seem like easy task - to come round Alliance roadblocks via proven trailways.But main character's path is far more complicated. Our game starts with the explosion of the special prison " Nova Prospekt " in the East - European city called " Bergshpitse ".
They have a lot of screenshots and since this is set within Half-Life 2 are either limited to get game assets and or keep the style within that universe. When I meant they had a lot of screenshot I mean it and the attention to detail in keeping in faith with the Half-Life universe is pretty good but I can see in a few screenshots that the lighting is overpowering the image but they stated it's in the alpha stages so it can change in the future. Then they talked about a demo release that is on the way and normally we don't do demos we review fully completed or close enough but this may have to be the reviewed just because they stated that the demo is going to be a prequel to The Revenge called "Antenna" and of course there are screenshots, info on the prequel but no release date for the demo.

Alright now for most of us in the US if you go to a Gamestop you might see a sign that shows you can pre-order a Steam Controller, Steam Link and or Steam Machine. So today Valve has announced that Gamestop (US), GAME (UK) and EB Games (Canada) stores will have a decatated section for Steam only...I know that doesn't really make any since that the only stuff that will be there is the hardware and gift cards but our lord Gaben...Gabe Newell had this to say..."GameStop, GAME UK, and EB Games are leading retail destinations for core gamers and early adopters," said Gabe Newell of Valve. "Creating a 'store within a store' across North America and the UK is a significant win for getting the first generation of Steam Hardware products into gamers' hands."

Alright next there was an ESL One Dota 2 tournament at the New York City’s Madison Square Garden theater wow that's impressive. The return of Alchemist, a hero who hasn’t had a huge impact on the game’s pro scene for a while now. Since the 6.84 patch Normally, the way Aghanim’s Scepter is it supercharges their abilities. It’s the same effect when Alchemist has and uses the scepter, the only difference that was introduced in 6.84 is that he can cast it on his allies as well as himself. So Alchemist is one of the best hero's for gold farming quickly so the idea post-6.84, then, was that Alchemist players could potentially outfit their entire team with crazy aghanim’s buffs Or at the very least since Aghanim’s is relatively expensive (4200 gold), Alchemist could strategically apply it to his teammates that he knows would use it most effectively. There are videos in the blog post showing off what I'm trying to explain but for you Dota fans does this interest you?
