In October of 2015, 343 Industries released a public API beta for Halo 5: Guardians which shared data of players with web developers. This was generally successful and allowed for the creation of several websites such as Halo Tracker and Halo Data Live.
Today, 343 Industries has announced a “Hackathon” competition for developers to compete in.
‘Minecraft: Story Mode’ Episode 1 – ‘The Order of the Stone’ will launch on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, PC, Mac, Android, and iOS tomorrow, 10/13/2015. It will also be the first Minecraft game on the Wii U.
China officially ended their 15 year video game console ban only yesterday. China originally began the ban in 2000 when fears arose about consoles having physical and mental negative affects on development of children. This left people playing with PCs, mobile devices, and web-based video games. The only possible way to receive or sell said consoles, was through the black market. With the console ban lifted, PCs just got three new competitors in the Chinese market.
The Know, a YouTube channel consisting of Rooster Teeth members who post videos about news in gaming, recently published a video about an anonymous source from within Valve. In the video, they stated that the anonymous source said that Half-Life 3 is not needed at the current time and that Valve fears internet backlash if the game turns out to be badly received.
Today, a Reddit user by the name of whats_not_in_a_name e-mailed Marc Laidlaw, the writer for the Half-Life series, about the video and he stated the following:
I can’t comment on Valve’s internal process, but I can say that it sounds like someone is trolling. Anonymous sources have been posting speculation masquerading as inside knowledge since the Half-Life 1 delay in 1997. If it’s any comfort, please rest assured that in my experience at Valve, fear is the last thing that would ever drive a decision about what to work on.
