Classic of the Month Stream – DownFall – February 2021

I have been doing my best to mix in some Source mods here and there in Classic of the Month instead of just sticking to my favorite engine. So Marnamai’s DownFall is next up.

I’ll be streaming DownFall this weekend, Saturday February 27th, about 12pm (noon) Eastern US Time (5pm in the UK, 6pm Central Europe). See you there!


Twitch is again the streaming platform! The stream will be on the RunThinkShootLive Twitch Channel.

Half-Life Decay: Solo Mission (Demo 1)

for Half-Life

Decay: Solo Mission a ground-up port of Half-Life: Decay that allows for seamless single-player gameplay in place of the original co-op. But it’ll also have fixes, more detail, and polishing where warranted for an improved experience.

This is a demo featuring about 20-30 minutes worth of gameplay and is taken from the opening chapters Dual Access and Hazardous Course.

To see in-progress screenshots and learn more about the full version of Decay: Solo Mission, visit the ModDB page, follow the author on Twitter, and check out Mr. Floyd’s Patreon.

Beast

for Half-Life

Your problem: a gonarch. But direct confrontation is not an option. This interesting set of 7 maps lets you puzzle and fight through your mission to make it out alive with the trapped scientist.

The goal is to destroy a monster (Big Momma/Gonarch). Mission is complete if you escape on the train with the scientist alive.

Stalwart XT

for Black Mesa

In the depths of the Black Mesa Research Facility Gordon is beset by hungry aliens, failing infrastructure and government soldiers determined to silence everyone involved with the project. The situation’s grim and he’s not the only one in trouble…

This 2-map release is a revamped and extended version of JamaicanDave’s Stalwart, which was an unofficial entry for the Hard!Ville mapping challenge in 2016.

The end of 2020, at last. We can only hope for a better 2021. But before the year goes, one more Classic of the Month. This time I picked one from the Half-Life 2 side of the tracks – Year Long Alarm by Chuck Wilson, which somewhat recently got a Steam release.

I’ll be streaming this Sunday December 27th, about 12pm (noon) Eastern US Time (5pm in the UK, 6pm Central Europe).

Half-Life: Crowbar-Deep in the Dead (Demo)

for Half-Life

Half-Life: Crowbar-Deep in the Dead is a complete re-imagining of the first episode of DOOM (1993), taking all of the original levels from Knee-Deep in the Dead and remaking them in the style of Half-Life and its many expansions.

Take control of Dr. Stan Blazkowicz, a Black Mesa engineer thrust into a fierce battle for survival as he fights off hordes of aliens and military troops, shooting and blasting his way through some of the most iconic levels in FPS history. Will you live through this alien hellscape long enough to see tomorrow, or will you be just another body strewn about in the ruins of Black Mesa?

Note: this release is a demo including 4 playable maps. Unfortunately the full version of Half-Life: Crowbar-Deep in the Dead is now on indefinite hiatus.

Classic of the Month Stream – Echoes – November 2020

November, already! Or, at last, if you’re in the U.S. Anyway, time for another Classic of the Month stream. This time it’s a relatively recent release from 2018: the superb Half-Life: Echoes by James ‘MrGnang’ Coburn. It’s one of the best-looking HL mods out there, thanks in no small part to the excellent Nightwatch textures. And it’s been a little while since I’ve picked a true classic Half-Life mod to play, but Echoes certainly qualifies.

I’ll be streaming this Saturday November 21st, about 12pm (noon) Eastern US Time (5pm in the UK, 6pm Central Europe).
