The more we play, the less we love?

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

Okay, I’ll be honest here, I’m not exactly sure I know what I am trying to say with this article, so I’ll just write what I think I mean and see what happens.

A little while ago, I watched a TV show and somebody said something like… “Studies have shown that the more sexual partners you have, the less happy you are with your final partner”.

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

I am pleased to announce that the next version of MapTap is now available.

It has the following new features:

  • A built in browser, allowing you find files and use them directly within the app.
  • Support of most Half-Life 1 maps. Some may not work, but most should
  • A “favourite” feature, to allow you to favourite maps, making them easier to find
  • An “Open the folder” feature, making it easy to view any ReadMe or screenshots

There’s a few other little things, but those are the ones that count.

Alyx needs your help. She is on the ground floor of a building and you are stuck on the first floor walkway.

You can open doors and power a couple of traps.

Use the resources to guide her through until you can meet up.

Be careful though, you both have to fend off attackers.

“You woke up in an apartment high-rise building. You don’t remember anything, even your name. You have deep cuts all over your body… you are bleeding heavily.

On the floor and walls is lot of blood, obviously, not only yours. You need to find something to sew up the wounds, and then try to understand why this nightmare is going on…”

7 Stages to perfect gaming – The 7 Series

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

In this article, I am going to describe MY 7 stages to perfect gaming.

Please bear with me while I explain how I got there!

I carry my new netbook with me everywhere. I bought it for my work but because I always have stuff to do on the site, it’s useful for me to be able to whip it out and do a bit of admin or even writing if there’s no Net connection.

This is an ALT mod and as such you don’t have weapons or enemies to fight.

You are along for the ride in a story about love and loss.

It’s in Russian but there are English subtitles.

Please base your reviews on what the mod actually is NOt or what you wanted it to be.
