Classic of the Month Stream – The Xeno Project 2 – September 2020

The next Classic of the Month stream will be The Xeno Project 2. I streamed its predecessor The Xeno Project just about 4 years ago, and if you recall at the conclusion I had successfully launched myself into orbit (thankfully in a rocket). However, my capsule was promptly captured by the G-man and his army, with the promise that the story was “To be continued…”

Avid viewers may remember I didn’t exactly let them take me alive. But I’ll pick up where I was supposed to leave off anyway!

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

Please note: I’ve switched back to Twitch as the streaming platform! The stream will be on the RunThinkShootLive Twitch Channel.

Check the Time & Date.Com website for your local time. See you there!

Deeper Down

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

In 2013’s Half Life 2 mod Deep Down, Jim Partridge took several key aspects from Episode Two, Alyx and the car, and expanded on these in an attempt to re-create that amazing Half-Life 2 feeling that everyone is looking for. Now, with seven additional years worth of level and environment design experience, Jim has taken another swing at the concept. With thirteen almost entirely new maps, new environments, new gameplay concepts, new puzzles, custom models (care of Ed Vincent), and original music (from Anicator), Deeper Down asks you to hit the road one last time and take down the one enemy who’s always been watching.

  • Bridge
  • Toxic
  • Teleport
  • Liberation
  • Vertical
  • Episode One
  • Two Rooms
  • Think Tank
  • Companion Piece
  • Back on Track

So here is FusionVille 2, Map Labs #10. It has 10 entries along with 2 bonus maps. Hope you enjoy, there are some pretty unique maps here!

As always, if you’re interested in learning more about Map Labs and maybe even participate in their upcoming challenges, visit the Map Labs Discord.
