Here’s what caught my eyes on ModDB.
- G-String: Space Battle
Looks interesting, but I’m not interested in this. Hope the developers don’t get carried away and lose what GString was: an innovative FPS. Worried about the fact that they will used WASD controls as I have never used those. Cool they are going to support VR though. Trailer below.
- Half-Life: R
Can’t say I am interested in having new view models, but some people are. as the designer says, he is making it because he can, so good luck to him.
- From Earth: Merging Items
Long article from AU-Heppa on how two items can merge. Looks pretty cool but I generally perfer simplier options to my games and mods, but can’t fault the creativity involved. Check out the trailer too.
- Steam, Tracks, Troubles and Riddles: Updated Beta
This interseting, although slightly lacking mod is recieving an update and a bnew beta version is available. Personally, I would have prefered the author took what he learnt from the original and crated soemthing new, but all credit to him for wanting to improve his work.
- Half-Life: Opposing Force: Source – Media Release 5
Work continues on this port, but as with ALL remakes, I would prefer something new.
- Half-Life: Blue Shift: Source – Media Release 3
KOLIAakaJASON is also working on this, so splitting his time between the two. I hate to sound negative, but surely it would be better to do one properly and then move onto the next one.
- Sand of the death 2
What The Headcrab is this? Seems like I completely missed the first one – not sure if that was good or bad. I’ll check it out this week. Anyway, version 2 is coming and it looks a pretty simple concept: Shoot Shit. Let me know if you have played it.
- Car-poral Keys
OMG What The Headcrab is going on here? Donald McRonald is an enemy. Looks a weird mod, might be fun to play.
Not much going on SP map-wise over on GB at the moment. I might extend my interest to models and other areas next time.
- SP Map: Sniperyard
I did add this to the site as it was in beta. I’ll give it a bit longer and if it is not update, I’ll post it. It’s pretty good.
- Fazbear’s Fright: The Horror Attraction
This is a very cool looking map, but unfortunately, it doesn’t have any interaction, so I can’t add it to the site. Quite nice to wander aroud though.
Reddit is a mixed bag of posts. Most are just images and things, some are very cool though. I always recommend reading through it at least once a week. ANything that links to a video will be posted in the section below.
- Looking for any books or games similar to Half-Life
I haven’t read the answers yet, but that topic would definitely interest me. I’m currently re-re-reading Asimov’s Foundation series.
- I love the Black Mesa facility. I’m trying to recreate Sector C in google sketchup. Just finished the tram station.
Pretty cool recreation.
- Tomorrow, Half-Life 3 will overtake TF2 to become the Valve game with the longest gap between announcement and release
Makes me depressed – I shouldn’t read these posts.
- Minimal HL T-Shirts
Look good, would definitely buy some if I were a T-shirt man.
- Valve writer says Half-Life 3 will not be a VR game
Thanks goodness for that. I definitely can’t afford to buy any VR hardware.
I’m always looking for new videos about or related to HL, so please send me links.
- A Ridiculous Recap Of Half Life
This is so funny. You must watch this.
- Half Life Nail Art Tutorial
Worth watching even if you don’t paint your nails. If I had a girlfriend who was interested in stuff like this, I would let her do it for Halloween.
- All Things Lambda returning
LambdaGeneration tweeted they are bringing back thier podcast, so if you like what they talk about, get ready for some new episodes.
Phew, that was less than I wanted to cover, but I brought everything together at the last minute. From now on, I’ll start create the post each day.
Please feel free to send links and items for the next podcast and also to comment on what you would like to see more or less of.
Remember, finishing Half-Life is just the beginning! CYA.
