Half-Life: Visitors

for Half-Life

You play the young lawyer Dr. Alan Green, who was sent to the desert as a safety evaluator to carry out a safety report of Black Mesa.

After a brief walk towards your temporary office you suddenly find yourself in a situation you are not prepared for.

Can you use what you have around you to escape this nightmare?

Poll Question 312 – How do you feel about the concept of paid mods?

WOW, what an interesting time we live in.

I’m not going to go into all the detail of the recent “paid Mods” event because I am sure you have been following it and probably know more about it than I do. However, I am going to talk about how it could affect me and this site.

If it is new for you, then I would suggest LambdaGenerations three excellent articles: 1, 2 & 3 and INtense!’s ModDB post as good summaries of different points of view.

May 2015 General Chat

As I sit here in from of my PC it’s raining. Great way to start May, don’t you think?

I’ll be creating a Poll Question about the recent paid mods fiasco, so please avoid that topic for now.

Besides that the rest is up to you.

Let’s talk about what you have been reading. I’ve restarted Rudy Rucker’s ‘Ware Series (no spoilers please) and I’m not sure I ever finished the first one even because about a quarter the way in and I don’t remember anything.

This Month’s Sci-Fi Movie

In June 2014, I started to use a poster from a classic Sci-Fi move as the background for the post image.

This month it is from The Space Children (1958). An alien intelligence aborts the launching of a rocket with the help of a bunch of children.

Marine Invasion: Episode 1

for Half-Life

Collect your gear and suit up.

Face possibly the largest number of enemies you have ever seen.

Survive until you die in the radioactive goo.

This mod was originally released with Episode and a bonus Opposing Force map on THWL. I have chosen to release each episode and the bonus map separately.

Zombieland

for Half-Life

You seem to have been kidnapped and are being kept in a bunker, guarded by zombies.

As you affect your escape, you enter dream-like states, where reality and fantasy mix.

Keep a clear head and focus on your objective and you may just escape.

Half-Life Point Blank – Stackdeath Complex

for Half-Life

Starting with no weapons and no idea where you should go, you need to stay alive long enough to figure what to do.

There is no story and no sense to any of the areas, but that’s that not the point of this mappack.

It’s to use your skill to reach the end.

Only the strong will survive, Spartans would love this challenge.
