Black Guard

for Half-Life

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

Dr. Eddy has been up to no good. To be honest, that seems like most scientists at Black Mesa.

You are part of the Black Guard, I suppose that’s like Black Shift, but maybe not.

Without warning, things really get crazy and you find yourself in the middle of it.

Do what BMRF has paid you to do: Kick some butt!

The Citizen Returns

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Set in both the heart and outside of City 17, “The Citizen Returns” contains the final chapters of our citizen’s story, as well as an updated version of Part II.

The story takes place shortly after a failed assassination attempt on Dr. Breen leads to the first ever use of the Overwatch Broadcast system by The Resistance, represented by former garage
owner Larry Soderstrom Jr.

The Combine forces decide to capture him and try to use his public repentance and execution as a means to appease the emergent rebellion.

The Citizens of City 17 however have other ideas in mind. Larry is now a symbol for the rebellion and a key asset in a bigger plot to deal a fatal blow to the Combine and its grip on humankind…

For this competition, entrants had to create an area from which the player must escape.

This “Escape” is most probably accomplished through the solving of some puzzle and/or combat.

The area can be a room, a series of rooms or even outside. The concept is that the player must find a way to move outside of the area.

I was hoping for some clever puzzles, hopefully environmental in nature and not some obscure and impossible to solve button pressing sequence.

This mod contains 3 official entries, one extra entry and a bonus map made over a longer time period.

Sector 6

for Half-Life

The helicopter drops you off and right into an ambush.

Get out and kill those soldiers, then work your way through the base.

Plant the C4 and hide behind the couch in the room nearby – THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

With luck, you will make it back out alive and back to another waiting helicopter.

Hopelessness 2: The Afterlife

for Half-Life

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

Something has gone wrong in Black Mesa. No surprise there and you need to find a way out. Again no surprise.

However, this time it’s not all run and gun – at least not at the beginning.

Take your time and explore carefully. You may need to use your wits before you can find a weapon.

Good Luck!

2014 Donation Drive

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

I hate asking for money from readers, but I need to.

Firstly, James and Jonathan from GetNodecraft.Net have been AMAZING. The site, as I am sure you have noticed, is SUPER fast, but not only that but they have been very generous regarding the price I pay, so in many ways they have already donated – thanks so much guys!

There are still other costs, including the files and media server in France but the advertising does bring in more or less enough to cover those costs and the readers have always donated plenty of games to use as prizes etc.

Whilst the site no longer costs me money personally, I still like to have funds in the account to pay for any unexpected costs or emergencies etc.

So, it is with all that in mind, that I ask you to donate any spare cash you can. Of course, I also know times are tough and if you can’t then that’s fine too. I hope you continue to enjoy the site.

June 2014 – General Chat

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

Welcome to June!

The sun is starting to appear more and more where I live and the days are so loooong, which is great. I’ll probably spend more time away from my PC this year than any other in the last 12 years, but I’ll also try to be more productive when I am there.

Please use this post to talk about about anything you want to – except maps and mods, which should be done of the specific post, assuming there is one.

This Month’s Sci-Fi Movie

From now on, I will use a poster from a classic Sci-Fi move as the background for the post image. This month it is from Forbidden Planet 1956, which features Robby the robot and the Krell. The Krell base is 20 miles square and underground. There’s a nice summary of the movie over on Sci-Fi Movie Zone, but don’t visit it if you plan to watch the movie.
