Happy 11th Birthday Me

Today is the site’s 11th birthday.

Can’t believe I have been doing this for so long.

Let’s hope the future of HL modding is bright.

You’ve been sent to what seems to be an abandoned water treatment facility.

After confirming there are no Combine left, you just need to get out.

Unfortunately, the lift needs to be powered, but once there is power, you find you are no longer alone.

Can you survive long enough to get the elevator?

A New Prospekt – Half-Life 2: Ep2

New Prospekt wasn’t the only prison the Combine have been using.

No Sir, not by a long way.

You have been sent to another prison, along with two highly trained squad members, to asses the situation and if possible rescue prisoners..

Carefully command the squad and do your damnedest to bring back as many prisoners as you can.

4000 Days Online!

Today is PlanetPhillip.Com’s 4000th day online.

I don’t really make much fuss over anniversaries but this one seems kinda cool.

So, here are my thoughts from the last 3999 days…

September 2014 General Chat

Welcome to September!

My Squash training should be over (I never did any due to injury) and the season should be about to start. I’m still injured and will probably miss the whole of September, which means I won’t be fully fit until January – being old SUCKS!

Anyway, the good news is that it leaves me more time for the site, so expect regular updates.

I’ll even try to restart the weekly Poll Questions, if I can think of enough interesting things to write about.

Hopefully, I’ll also finish The Trap and start a new long term Twitch series.

So, how was your Summer?

Enhanced PP Profiles

I pride myself on always trying to make the site better. Not just by adding new content, but by improving or introducing new features.

Today I am pleased to announce the rollout of Phase 1 of the PP Profile page.

This post will explain its current features and hint at Phase 2 and 3.

Poll Question 298 – How often do you play the free trials on Steam?

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

Originally, this poll was going to be about “Have you ever found a game in your Steam Library and have no idea how it got there?” because I saw Borderlands 2 in my Library and tweeted about it and helpfully Dan Jordan told me it was on free trial.

But then I realized that it probably never happens anyway – or does it?

So, this idea came from that one.

To be honest, I don’t think I have ever taken advantage of a free trial. Basically, if I like the look of a game I buy it. That sounds a bit snobbish and I recognize that I should use these trials to play games outside of my usual genre.

I kinda wrote something along the same idea years ago called Game Radio Idea.

Well, there you have the background to this poll, but now it’s time to let me have your thoughts on these free trails and don’t forget to vote…
