Valve Just Keep Doing It!

21st August 2006

Introduction

I’m not the first to discuss this, nor the last, but whilst there are many aspects about Valve that really annoy me, I can’t help but congratulate them on their creativity. The image above (Sorry it’s not very clear!) is taken from the video below of a newly discovered weapon, from HL2 Ep1, which seems to be called the Vortex Hopwire. It creates a black hole that enemies are drawn into.

I found it via joystiq.com, who originally found it on halflife2.net.

The guys and gals over at Valve are doing a fantastic job of introducing new and exciting things to FPS gaming and I applaud them.

    Cool, haven’t seen this before. It’s like a rather forceful version of the World’s Most Interesting Bomb.

    Damn! It’s like that blast with missile of the Dark Beam (Metroid 2 Echoes).

    Obvioulsy this works better. The other just “seems wonderful”.
