What The Headcrab: Episode 006

Hello, time for another WTH. Christmas is pretty much over and it’s time to think about the New Year.

It’s been 3 weeks since the last WTH, so this one might be a bit longer than the others, although I don’t think so.

Pick of the Episode

This week’s pick is the Lost Story Dev Blog. It’s always nice to see new features added to the base game and this looks great. Check it out later in the episode.

Arctic Incident

for Half-Life

The action takes place in a scientific complex, which is located somewhere in the Arctic.

In the caves, scientists have found a new form of life, which is resistant to frost and incredibly aggressive to intrusion.

The staff at the complex do not have sufficient means to counter it.

As a consequence they are forced to ask for help from the military, but the military, apparently, have their own plans for the incident.

What The Headcrab: Episode 005

Here we are, getting close to Christmas, which is either really great for you or you’d rather just go to bed and wake up in the first week of January depending on your life.

But just because Father Christmas is preparing his present, doesn’t mean that the Half-Life community just sits back and relaxes, OH NO, we/they have been hard at work and we are now going to look at exactly what they have been doing.
