The title of this post has got to have shocked you.

“Phillip must want the Half-Life games to keep coming.”

Yes, I do, but on a fixed schedule. Every 3 years is about right for me. Fixed engine too – no updates to break mods or any of those shenanigans.

But the world and Valve don’t revolve around what I want – quite right too!

So, here are 7 reasons I hope Ep3 is the last Half-Life game.

Don’t forget to add your own in the comments.

You Die – Opposing Force

for Opposing Force

You and your squad have been pushed back into retreat by Xenian forces.

You wake up in a small base you have taken shelter in to find that something is off, the lights are dim, there’s blood everywhere, all your fellow soldiers are dead. What happened here, what happened to your squad.

You must escape before you end up the same way as your buddies.

Poll Question 248 – Do you take a break after playing long mods or games?

I’ve just finished a really long and great book. I feel a little relieved that I have finished it, but also sad because the story has finished, at least for the time being.

As much as I love reading I couldn’t start a new book for a few days, even a short one – I need time to “digest” what I have just experienced. I need time to look for the plot holes and consider the actions of the protagonists.

“Gordan Freeman is relaxing with his friends, when suddenly he hears the sounds of headcrab cannons.

One grazes his head, and he falls unconscious.

When he wakes up, all he hears is the sound of moaning.”

Starting in a stairway and corridor, you just have to slowly work your way through the building.

Beware though, alien enemies are constantly appearing and making you life difficult and those army grunts aren’t too friendly either!

Can you reach the outside?

CloneVille Idea

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

SPOILER ALERT: As I was playing TWHL Mix yesterday, there’s a part at the end where one of the scientists seems to get cloned.

Being an idiot I jumped into the cloning machine in the hope of being cloned.

The teleportation device is malfunctioning and you keep getting sent to random locations.

All you can do is try to survive long enough in the hope of getting home again.

Trust no-one and kill everything that stands in your way

Jose Reynolds, a journalist, for the “Santa Fe Times” in New Mexico, obtains interesting information from his sources, that a few hours ago, not far from “Route 66″, strange animals were found dead.
