“You are, as always, Gordon Freeman. After you got that mess the scientists made under control, the scientists and the government have set up a research lab, called New Mexico Alien Reasearch Center. This lab is, of course, secret.
StriderVille is the result of a mapping competition.
The competition only received 2 entries, which was very disappointing, considering how succesful the last one was.
This mod is dedicated to the memory of Jasper, who was really looking for to playing it.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a piece entitled Evenness of Quality, where I argued that a mod should have an evenness of quality throughout. Even if that meant dropping a section down in quality so it wouldn’t stand out. However, just to be clear, I was not talking about the detail of an area, but something more abstract. Well, today I am almost going to contradict that and write about the WOW Factor.

Half-Life has spawned a LOT of videos on YouTube and the like, but most aren’t very good. I’ve decided to post 5 videos that use Half-Life 2. If yours didn’t make the list, just comment and I’ll take a look. I may post a part two next year.
