Weekend PC Download Deals for Nov. 17: Half-Life's 25th anniversary

Valve is celebrating Half-Life's 25th anniversary with a major update. Plus, the game is yours to keep for free!


Man, 25 years flies by fast. It's time for Half-Life to celebrate its 25th birthday and Valve is doing it right by offering an exciting 25th anniversary update. This free update brings back a lot of old easter eggs and brand new content, enough to give every Half-Life fan everything they could ever want as long as what they want doesn't include the number 3. On top of that, if you don't own Half-Life, you can claim it for free and keep it forever! But you only have until Monday to claim it, so get moving!

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
