December 2016 General Chat

Hard to believe the end of 2016 is nearly upon us. Christmas is a mere 3 weeks away and of course I haven’t started shopping at all.

Releases have been a little quiet lately, but soon we’ll have Hard!Ville to play at least.

Any games you picked up during the Autumn Steam Sale? Any games on your wish list for Christmas? For my part, I grabbed Dishonored 2 but haven’t had time to play it yet.

Happy December!

November 2016 General Chat

Hopefully everyone had an enjoyable Halloween and is having a good autumn. I personally love Halloween, and although I didn’t do a costume this year, I made sure to watch plenty of horror movies and played a few spooky games. The best movie I saw this year was definitely It Follows – it’s creepy and tense without being gory.

Things have picked up a little recently here at RTSL, with the release of Precinct 17 and Fast Detect – and of course the pending release of HalloweenVille Three!

Happy November!

October 2016 General Chat

Hi guys, Unq here again, posting while Phillip is on sabbatical.

So, not too much has been happening here at RTSL although we’ve had a handful of new mods posted in the last month, and of course the usual weekend streams are still going. I have some spooky streams planned for this month.

It’s already October, autumn is here and more importantly Halloween is coming soon! Any good costumes planned? Anyone setting up a haunted house perhaps?

Happy October!

September 2016 General Chat

OK, first things first: this is Don posting now. I’m not taking over the RTSL site, but I offered to be an interim admin to keep things going while Phillip is on sabbatical.

I’m going to simply be keeping an eye on the site. The regular weekend streams of The Ville Retrospective, Classic of the Month, and Source of Fame will resume shortly and we’ll keep those going. New maps and mods will still be posted in this interim time.

In case you don’t know me, I am Don AKA Unq (short for Unquenque) – Half-Life fan and mapper since the early days. I’ve been a part of the PlanetPhillip/RTSL community for over 5 years, and I currently run the Classic of the Month streaming event where I pick a new Half-Life or Op4 mod to play.

August 2016 General Chat

Hello August. FINALLY I have my holidays.

Firstly, even though the RTSL Discord server is up and running, that doesn’t mean these posts will stop. I understand that not everybody wants to use the Discord server and some conversations and discussions are better suited to this format anyway. If you decide to head over and check out the server, please be aware the same rules apply there as here: Keep it family friendly (Except for the #Mature channel – but there’s no guarantees this will stay anyway). You will need to create a free account to access the server but there is nothing I can do about that, sorry.

Secondly, what plans have you got regarding gaming? Tell me about your dreams. Am I in them?

Thirdly, have you had your holidays yet? Where have you been? Where are you going?

Lastly, I have created a new menu item on the grey (Secondary) menu called FOLLOW. It lists the usual places to follow RTSL.

Happy August.

July 2016 General Chat

Hello July, you Daughter Of A Stalker! Where have you been?

I can finally, wear that yellow bikini around the house I keep talking about (if I receive $1000 Dollars donations this month, I post pics), so it’s definitely starting to get hotter.

My work load eases off from today, so I should be able to do more with the site in the next 5 weeks or so.

So, what have you got planned for this month?

June 2016 General Chat

Hello June, you Son Of A Headcrab!

It’s still not warm enough for me to wear my bikini around the house yet. I was expecting it to be hot enough to do that. I even got a bikini wax last week in expectation. Oh well, looks like the neighbourhood will have to wait a little longer to gaze upon my golden svelte super body.

Back to gaming, if you can, after I probably burned that image into your eyes for the rest of today.

As you can see, I haven’t really updated the site much. Partly because there doesn’t seem to have been anything released and partly because I have been working on other things. Got a few things I wish I could tell you about, but it’s better to wait until they are ready.

I’m thinking of starting a new YouTube channel playing really old FPS games. Thoughts?

So, what have you got planned for this month?

May 2016 General Chat

Hello May. Where have you been hiding? Time to change my wardrobe for my Summer clothes – YAY!

So, what have you got planned for this month?

What is this post?

Over the last three months, RTSL has got a lot of new readers, mostly I suspect due to VNN, but maybe from other sources too. Anyway, unlike many other sites that also have a “proper” forum, RTSL does not. We did have but it was never used, so I removed it. People also complained about having to register twice – and I fully agree.

So now, each month I create a “General Chat” post for readers to post whatever they want within the limits of being a family-friendly website.

Please don’t post reviews, questions or comments about maps and mods listed on the site – post them on the respective post – all those comments will be deleted. I do this to ensure that when a reader visits a map or mod page, all the information is in one place.

March 2016 General Chat

Hi March, How’s it going?

I’ve been really busy which is energizing but also tiring.

What about you, have you been busy?

Hoping to get some original content out this month, buy we’ll see.

Anyway, as usual, chat about anything you want, just please avoid chatting about maps and mods listed on the site.
