Deep Down

Mod of the Week: Deep Down, for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Another E3 has come and gone, and with it absolutely no indication that we might ever, ever, ever get another Half-Life game, ever. So, what's a hopeless loyal Half-Life fan to do while we prepare to wait yet another year to hear even a single word about the further adventures of Glasses McWhatsisname and Woman O'Whosherface? (It's been so long I can't remember their names.) Well, I guess we can look to the modders. Deep Down, a mod for Half-Life 2: Episode Two, provides a solid two-hour campaign for Scientist Guy and Shotgun Woman as they descend into an abandoned mine to find and destroy a Combine Advisor. Is it Half-Life 3? No. But pushes enough of the right buttons to serve as a fix.

Capcom teases Panta Rhei engine and Deep Down at PS4 press conference

At Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal earlier today, Capcom announced a new game engine named Panta Rhei and a game tentatively titled Deep Down. As Capcom has a history of porting its games to PC, and the PlayStation 4 is essentially a custom PC, we can probably expect to see the fantasy action game come our way.
