Author’s Note: Three-Legged Terror occurs as a side story during the events of Half-Life 2:Episode 2. The player assumes the role of a basic Resistance member, hidden away in an isolated mountain base with a small team of soldiers. This base is discovered by the Combine, who send a Strider to destroy the base. Gameplay revolves weakening and damaging the Strider throughout the map as it ascends the mountain trail, giving your NPC allies time to fix weapons and provide aid. The idea was inspired by Capcom

Poll Question 258 – What kind of speakers do you use?

Having a good sound card and speaker set up can make a big difference to your experience of gaming, yet few of us can have a large speaker system dedicated to our PC.

Currently I just use my laptop speakers or some cheap headphones. I have had 7.1 headphones but my ears overheated, so I had to stop using them.

As much as I would love to have huge speakers to play with but my living arrangements and the fact I like portability, anything other than headphones is impossible.

Tell me more about your speaker set up. Got any recommendations regarding headphones?

I have been meaning to write this for a few weeks now, better late than never I suppose.

To be honest, it was only the title I thought about and not the actual predictions. These are all off the top of my balding head.

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

Black Death

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Black Death is a single-player Half-Life 2: Episode Two level that deviates from the original gameplay.

In the post-apocalyptic future, Gordon Freeman must escape from a zombie-infested medieval tourist town outside of City 17 with no allies and only two tools at his disposal – his trusty crowbar and a confusion crossbow.

The new crossbow confuses enemies into attacking the victims rather than killing them. Outmanned, he must adapt to his new environment and find the balance between crowbar and crossbow.

Alt Mod Idea: Crowd Control

How people behave in small groups and large groups is very different from how they behave when they are on their own.

Even if you think of yourself as an intelligent and independent person you can sometimes find yourself manipulated.

The story I am about to tell you really did happen to me.
