Half-Life & Portal Summarized by ChatGPT
· ☕ 2 min read
Below is a short article written by ChatGPT from the prompt “Summarize the Half-Life and Portal games storylines and lore, and their affect on the gaming industry.” Note there are a couple inaccuracies, such as the gravity gun being mentioned with the first game. It also ignored the sequels. Maybe I could have specified those better. Half-Life and Portal are two critically acclaimed first-person shooter video games developed and published by Valve Corporation.

The Elder Scrolls VI

So, it’s finally happening. At Bethesda’s E3 briefing we got a 30 second teaser confirming The Elder Scrolls VI is coming. Later on Todd Howard confirmed the game has entered preproduction. This puts an official release date somewhere between 2026-2028. Based on what we see in the teaser, we can expect the game to be set in either High Rock or Hammerfell (maybe both?). I for one cannot wait to play this.

My Disdain for Dwemer Ruins

I can’t be the only one with this opinion, but I absolutely despise Dwemer ruins. They don’t fit. The Elder Scrolls is a medieval fantasy, and steampunk just does not fit in it. I don’t know what Bethesda were going for, but I just can’t understand why it was ever needed. That however does not mean I have no interest in the Dwemer themselves. I really do like the idea of a race that has suddenly vanished and no one knows what happened.
