Half-Life Anniversary

Rock, Paper, Shotgun notes that today is the 15th anniversary of the release of the original Half-Life, which jibes with our archived news showing the seminal first-person shooter indeed first appeared in stores that day. While we're on the topic, the archive shows today is also the 15th anniversary of what was a little of a Black Thursday for ION Storm, as it was on this day that the developer suffered a group resignation that affected both the Daikatana and Anachronox teams which lead to the formation of Third Law Interactive (remember KISS Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child?), and on that same day programmer Corinne Yu also left ION to join 3D Realms to do what turns out to have been ill-fated programming of the QUAKE II engine for "Prey and Duke Nukem 5 (tentative title)."
