Rockstar has gone ahead and done it again. With an update of the EULA, GTA 5 now completely bans all mods.

This is the actual provision, word for word, on the EULA:

You agree not to:

[..] reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, display, perform, prepare derivative works based on, or otherwise modify the Software, in whole or in part;

Clearly, the provisions make it so that you can be banned even for using mods only in single player.

Rockstar originally did a blanket sweep of all mods last January, but appeared to soften their stance shortly thereafter. However, the combination of mods being abused by cheaters, and Rockstar’s inability to mitigate or police it, may have led to this decision.

Black Mesa is now live on Steam Early Access.

If you had questions why a game of this (relatively small) scale and development time took this long, only to go on Early Access the developers shared this explanation on the page:

Making a game with the scope and scale of Black Mesa is a massive undertaking. Back in 2012 we made the decision to release what we had completed up to that point, and were blown away by the community’s response, feedback and improvements to our work. We want to keep that relationship alive and well by using Early Access as a tool for allowing our community to participate in the final phase of Black Mesa’s development.

In addition, we simply didn’t have the resources to create Xen as we would like it. Our ambitions go beyond the original Xen section found in Half-Life. We have a standard of quality that we have to achieve. By using Early Access, we are allowed the resources to bring you the remaining chapters with the quality that you expect.

Wired has shared a preview of the GOG Galaxy Alpha. As it is now, the client is quite promising.

GOG Galaxy is intended to give GOGcom parity with Steam. In its original form, it was merely a client to enable online play for GOG’s DRM-free games. Now, perhaps based on feedback from fans, the client has more parity with Steam, giving you native access to your library, the store, and other features.

Wired has noted some basic features that need updating, such as desktop icons added to each installed game automatically. In my personal experience, Galaxy is unable to find my copy of Super Hexagon, which I already have installed and with some progress on my computer, but gives me an option to install it.

These kinks will need fixing in time, but for now, you can learn more about the client’s current state here.

A Steam Workshop page has appeared for Black Mesa.

Some fans hope it is a hint for Half-Life 3, but of course, Black Mesa has been a long time coming as well. The remake of the first Half-Life games on Source has been in the works for over a decade, and while some fans have continued to wait patiently, it’s safe to say most have moved on.

This listing coincides with the end of a timer teaser on the Black Mesa Research Facility website.

What do you make of all this? Will you be happy with Black Mesa on it own? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

DICE has revealed in a feature blog post that they will have 12 multiplayer maps for Star Wars Battlefront.

The feature was for one of the maps, and a first time entry for the Star Wars gaming universe: Sullust. Creating Sullust required going to Iceland to capture footage, aside from using assets shared by the LucasFilm archives.

You can read more details on how DICE made Sullust here.

Do you remember catching wind of rumors that Koji Igarashi would be making an original Metroidvania game after leaving Konami? There was even a Twitter account made, before things hit a secret standstill. Well, it looks like this is finally happening.

There’s no mistake about it. This new site, named Sword or Whip – #igavania, does not make any secret about Igarashi’s involvement, or the nods to Castlevania.

As indicated, the site has you choosing either a sword or a whip, while an unnamed seated man, who looks like Igarashi dressed like Dracula, making not so cryptic messages like this one:

If you missed earlier rumors, they basically point to Igarashi launching a Kickstarter for his next game within this week or the next one. You can get the details here.
