Dead End Road

for Half-Life 2

Whilst the great Gordon Freeman is causing havoc in Nova Prospekt, the Resistance is building.

In an effort to limit the amount of new resistance groups from forming, the Combine have been destroying bridges and tunnels.

Just after entering one such tunnel, you hear an explosion and then the real journey begins.

Can you reach the other rebels? Let’s find out.

Headcrab Frenzy

for Half-Life

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

There’s one enemy and it’s the headcrab.

There’s one weapon and it’s the crowbar.

Put them together and what have you got?

HEADCRAB FRENZY!, that’s what.

Although you can play this online in MP mode, you can also play it locally, aiming to stay alive as long as possible and beat your personal high score.

Poll Question 302 – Do you play too much?

I recently tweeted “I nearly jumped over the balcony of the last flight of stairs I was working down this morning. Definitely been playing too much HL lately!” I lied. I actually haven’t been playing that much lately.

In fact, I probably play less video games than all my visitors. I’m too obsessed with the site! I DID think about jumping over the balcony, but not because of the amount I had been playing, but because I can’t get HL out of my head.

The whole episode got me thinking about how much time we spend playing games.

Game of Skills

for Half-Life 2

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

You find yourself in what seems to be a test facility.

The problem is that YOU are being tested.

Being fast might not be enough, you’ll also need to be smart.

Especially in the final test.

Good luck, or should I say Goodbye!

Data Place

for Half-Life 2

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

There’s only one Gordon Freeman. Nobody else can be trusted to retrieve the data.

You’ve been sent to a courtyard that contains 3 separate data storage points.

Reach each one, enter your USB and wait for the data to be transferred.

Once all three have been completed, look for the subway entrance and get ready for the ride of your life!

The Underground

for Half-Life 2

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

The Underground can be a dangerous place.

All kinds of zombies wandering around, waiting for something to eat.

If you are not careful, you’ll be sitting down to lunch with them, and not as their guest!

Duality

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

One location, two ways of escaping.

Use your stealth ability or your run and gun tactics to escape the prison.

Which ever you use, think carefully before risking all.

Only the smartest will survive.

October is upon us.

Leaves changing colour, more rainy days meaning no more excuses to not be in front of our computers playing Half-Life mods!

Got any modding plans for this winter? Gonna build your first mod? You should. In fact, so should I!

Poll Question 301- How old is your main gaming computer?

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

In the first in a short series of hardware polls, this week’s poll is about the age of your main gaming computer.

The question was suggested by a reader who is building a mod and has decided to ensure his son’s computer can run it, since it’s quite old.

It’s a sensible philosophy but when he suggested it to me, we couldn’t find a good way of classifying PCs.
