Prisoner of Event

for Half-Life

One night, Gordon Freeman was going home from work. It was late at night and he was in a hurry. The car’s engine purred quietly and inside was pretty comfortable.

Beyond the car’s window was a cold, cold night and black mountains against a dark sky could be seen in the background.One night, Gordon Freeman was going home from work. It was late at night and he was in a hurry. The car’s engine purred quietly noise and inside was pretty comfortable.

Sometimes the little techniques you use to play can make big difference. Too often I don’t manage my ammo very well and I regularly find myself staring into the eyes of some army grunt and running out of ammo!

Trespasser

for Half-Life

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

Your name is Mark Hunt, an elite Marine sent in to ‘clean up’ the Black Mesa Incident. Near evening your platoon was ambushed by a superior force, taking you completely by surprise. In the chaos you became separated from your C.O. and by sheer luck evaded the atomic blast that followed. The Brass didn’t call it luck. You were courtmartialed for desertion and sentenced to ten years in a maximum security prison. Two years into your sentence, something happened…

Runder

You start in a cave and have some buttons to press and enemies to kill.

It’s a simple map, with a simple layout and a simple ending.

Kill the enemies and press the buttons.

Even a simpleton could do it.

for Half-Life

You are sent to Phobos IV which has a deadly virus.

Fortunately, there is an antidote. Less fortuantely, creatures from Xen have taken control of the base.

Follow the on screen instructions and use you ammo VERY carefully.

Here is my story about how I got into gaming

I believe I have indirectly mentioned how I got into gaming in a number of other articles here on PP, but I thought it might be nice if I heard how you did.

To do that it only seemed fair that I share first. So, with that in mind, here is my story….

Where Are They Now?

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

The 100 Summer Days of Nostalgia event has generated so many ideas for mod reports, podcasts and general articles. One of them, which has certainly been done before, but fits so well with the theme of the event is Where are they now?

I have emailed a few people and Petrick, a PP reader and reviewer, has said he has tried contacting a few people too, but I thought a proper post on the site would be a good idea.
