Moving Domains

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

After considerable thought, I have decided to move the site to a new domain.

I am doing this to present the site as more than just one person’s blog.

Over time, there may be other small but important changes, for example, taking on staff for specific tasks or roles.

Voice Actors Needed for G-String

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

MyoHyo, the author of the amazing G-String mod, is looking for voice actors to help with the update.

If you have never heard of this mod, it’s a total conversion that takes you to a dystopian future. It’s an incredible piece of work and deserves a wider audience. Released in 2011, many people found it difficult to play and MyoHyo decided to update it.

She is looking for voice actors, but would like older people to apply. There are a few parts available, listed below, and I would very much like the PP community to help her.

Freeman’s Return 2

for Half-Life

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Xen…

Suddenly you find yourself on Xen again. Worry not though, as after you solve a simple puzzle you will be returned to Earth.

The trouble is, that’s when your problems really start.

Freeman’s Return 1

for Half-Life

You play as Gordon Freeman, who returns to an unknown base.

As usual, you must contend with everybody and everything trying to kill you.

Only the strongest can survive this onslaught – are you one of them?

Poll Question 303 – Is it right that game developers can limit your right to stream games?

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

I tuned into a Twitch live stream last night for a few minutes and there were two guys playing Half-Life Decay.

At the bottom of the screen was a notice that said something like “Streaming games in North America before their official release date could be a violation of the Terms of Agreement…”.

I have to admit I hadn’t thought about anything like that before and wondered how fair that was – to both parties.

It seems to me that the developers do have rights, but surely letting players see the games first is a free way of advertising.

It also raises the issue of why there are different release dates around the world. Can’t these guys just release it every where at the same time? What are the commercial considerations for staggered launches? Now many things can be digitized it’s hard for the average consumer to understand.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

November 2014 General Chat

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

We had an incredible October here in the Basque Country (Euskadi) and the weather has been better than August. I’m not joking.

Work on the new theme is progressing nicely and I am currently adding the special pages and putting the finishing touches to the “table” page and something new called the “timeline”. Integration with the Recommendation System is proving harder than expected. I’ll be calling for beta testers in a few weeks.
