Half-Life: Residue Processing
published: 2012

The Replay Experience Experiment: Half-Life: Residue Processing

After escaping from the trash compactor and getting back to the surface, Gordon stumbles towards a mostly abandoned part of the facility, meant for processing and disposing of waste and hazardous materials. Dodging and jumping through antiquated compaction machines, great vats of green waste, and slipping through furnaces, as well as riding on gravity-defying conveyor belts, Freeman escapes to a hidden part of the facility.

E7 Black Star

for Half-Life

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

“The story takes place in Russia at the secret plant called “Object E7” or “Black Star” at the same time as the unexpected consequences at Black Mesa. G-Man was planning to organize three incidents of portal opening originally.

First one – at Black Mesa Complex. Second one – at Black Star plant. The third place is unfortunately unknown. But thanks to the fact that the cascade resonator at Black Star was out of order, the planned incident didn’t take place there.

Object E7 is a laboratory complex researching anomalous materials and organisms. Its academic adviser is Dr.Victor Shmurghe. He has connected directly with G-Man. The protagonist is a political prisoner who was moved from a jail to Object E7. His main purpose was to test a prototype of the new protection suit H.E.V.5000. But he could escape during usual testing by chance.”

Finding yourself within the catacombs you decide to look for a way out (As if you had any other choice!)

The way is perilous and Indiana Jones could be around the next corner!

Don’t be afraid of the dark corners, only your fear limits you.

Poll Question 179 – Would you like to see a mod break the fourth wall?

In case you don’t know, the Fourth Wall is the imaginary “wall” at the front of the stage in a traditional three-walled box set.

I don’t know if it’s used for gaming or even if it’s been broken in games or mods before, but I thought it would make an interesting question.

Personally, I think it would be fun in a humorous mod but not in a serious mod because it would break the immersion for me.

If it has been used in mods, which ones?
