When is a sequel not a sequel? When it's Half Life 2: Episode One, the confusingly titled first new episode in a trilogy of releases that picks directly where HL2 left off. So it's part two of Half-Life 2, but episode one of three of part two? Something like that. Even Valve boss Gabe Newell seems exasperated with trying to justify it. "We should have just called it Half Life 3: Episode One, but it's a bit late now," he chuckles. Actually, Aftermath worked pretty well..

CG writes: Whilst there is no doubt the upcoming expansion Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is the real deal (based on current gaming media reviews), parts of the recent update 2.0 feels a little underwhelming in the grand scheme (trying hard not to complain too much about free stuff). In-a-way, with all the big-talk surrounding it, feels like some kind of psy ops. Let's explore why we think that way especially as Cyberpunk 2077 is one of our favourite games of all time with close to 1000 hours invested. Don't misunderstand us, the free update is welcome and does improve parts of the game way beyond the original release, but being critical we have some reservations.
