June 2016 General Chat

Hello June, you Son Of A Headcrab!

It’s still not warm enough for me to wear my bikini around the house yet. I was expecting it to be hot enough to do that. I even got a bikini wax last week in expectation. Oh well, looks like the neighbourhood will have to wait a little longer to gaze upon my golden svelte super body.

Back to gaming, if you can, after I probably burned that image into your eyes for the rest of today.

As you can see, I haven’t really updated the site much. Partly because there doesn’t seem to have been anything released and partly because I have been working on other things. Got a few things I wish I could tell you about, but it’s better to wait until they are ready.

I’m thinking of starting a new YouTube channel playing really old FPS games. Thoughts?

So, what have you got planned for this month?

Poll Question 348 – Are you buying older games on Steam?

I have a pretty good collection of FPS in boxes and every year I say “I’m gonna install some of those and play them”. Of course, I never do as something shiny comes along, but this year I might actually do it.

In the past it could be quite difficult to get really old games to work on modern PCs but now you can buy a lot of them directly from Steam which means no set up (YAY).

But since i hate spending money, I don’t see why I should buy them on Steam since I already own them. It might be possible to input the code into Steam and get the game but all my games are in the basement and just getting upstairs will be effort enough.

So, onto this week’s poll question…Are you buying older games on Steam?

Who can tell me the name of the game in the featured image?

What The Headcrab! Episode 10

A day late. Okay, Okay, I’m sorry. This was supposed to be a Saturday thing but I reformatted my PC on Friday afternoon and it took longer than usual. I changed operating systems otherwise I would have simply copied my back up image across. It’s 95% done now, so PHEW!

Before we actually start the show, I want to tell you about some very important changes to the format.

Firstly, the show will be moving to YouTube. I will continue to make the MP3 download available, but you will no longer be able to play it via the built in player directly on the site. However, modern browsers, like Google Chrome, can actually play the file within the browser itself, so that might not be an issue.

This change may necessitate a change to the menu items, but I’ll decide on that in the very near future.

Secondly, I will only be providing the links to the mods, not the “commentary” as well.

Thirdly, There will also be coverage of what’s been happening on RTSL, including the Poll Question and other posts, plus links to interesting comments and discussions.

Annnnyway, what’s been happening in the HL SP world lately?

What The Headcrab: Episode 009

Bet you didn’t think you would see another WTH episode! I do want to make them but it’s so hard to allocate the time.

I have a plan to do shorter weekly shows, but let’s see what happens.

Anyway, what’s been happening in the HL SP world lately?
