Almost a decade after the Black Mesa incident, which opened the Portal Storms, you find yourself trying to cope with their aftermath.

Creatures seem to appear from nothing and come without warning. It is during this time that you find yourself in your apartment.

A strange, suited man appeared in your dreams and having no idea what’s going on, all you can do is to try and stay alive.

Poll Question 198 – What Half-Life games have you finished playing?

What Half-Life games have you finished playing?

Not the most interesting poll question on PP, but I am hoping the results prove interesting. As you would imagine I have played all of them but I suspect that HL2 and EP2 will be the “winners” here.

I have to admit I am curious as to how many players have play BS and OP.

Anyway, get voting and let’s see what the results are.

Black Forest Beta – Half-Life 2: Ep2

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

You begin in a tunnel that starts to collapse, “Run!” shouts Alyx, as she sprints ahead of you. Phew, you seemed to have made it out alive, but Alyx is nowhere to be seen.

This map is apparently based on the Black Forest in Germany. As you might have noticed from the tags it’s still in beta and this map is part of a larger mod.

Poll Question 197 – Would you like a mod that offered you more control over what weapons you had?

I’m not sure what got me thinking about this but I know that a lot of players are really interested in different types of weapons. I’m not. I’ll take whatever the mapper gives me and use that.

I wonder if players would like more “load-out” style rooms before certain sections of mods. I understand that it gives mods some replay value by adding more variables but just feels too artificial for me.

The Sprucecape Mappack – Half-Life 2: Ep1

You play the role of John Sprucecape. Apparently, a “once a successful professor of philosophy, but now a violent unemployed middle-aged man with an alcohol addiction”.

You wake up to find yourself locked in the house and your family gone. Go look for them! Of course Life has a way of throwing stuff in your way, as I am sure you expected.

Kallaim – Half-Life 2: Ep2

You find yourself in what looks like a prison but it’s much more industrial than most. Clearly you need to escape and that is easier said than done.

You get to leave the prison and feel the fresh air on your face but not for too long. Keep the faith as you will eventually see the light of day again, but you might wish you hadn’t.

Antracide – Half-Life 2

for Half-Life 2

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

The Evil normally maps for CS:S but decided to try his hand at some HL2. Th action takes place in a large Combine facility with plenty of walkways and huge drops.

There are possibly more Combine Elite Guards in these two shortish maps than in the whole of the Half-Life series. No, really, I’m serious.

Not for the faint hearted
