YouTube’s member ‘MarphitimusBlackimus‘ has uploaded a gameplay video from the tech demo levels of Half-Life Alpha v 0.52 dated September 4, 1997, over one year prior to the finished game’s release. And you know what? I seriously love this kind of videos that show how games looked like before their time of release. The reason I love these videos is because we get to see an – almost – completely different game. Duke Nukem Forever, Resident Evil 2 and 4, Alan Wake and ICO are some great examples of that logic/theory. Enjoy! Continue reading Half-Life Alpha Version 0.52 – Tech Demo Gameplay

Now this is how you create mind-blowing tributes (or trailers).

And quite frankly, this is the most beautiful tribute we’ve ever seen. It’s emotional, Victoria’s voice is great, Joel’s music is outstanding, and the whole video feels so warm and calm.
