HorrorVille: A Mapping Challenge

Poll Question 265 – Do you keep mods until you are in the right mood for them?

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

Sounds pretty obvious, doesn’t it? But I wonder if players put certain mods to one side until “they are in the mood“.

I certainly have to be in the mood for difficult Portal mods, I just can’t play unless I am in the right frame of mind.

But that’s about it for me, everything else I just play when I need to play it.

I just play everything as it’s released, assuming I have the time.

What about you?

Quick note: I’ve been pretty ill this week and spent all day in bed yesterday and plan to do the same Saturday and Sunday. This is the only update the site will have for at least 3 days, maybe more. Sorry!

The Forgotten Lab – Half-Life 2

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

Just a simple never-ending map with various zombies.

No matter where you go, they can reach you.

How long can you survive?

Poll Question 264 – Have you ever immediately replayed map or mod?

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

I have no idea where this poll question came from, it just popped into my head.

I rarely replay mods, even after months or years, so playing it again immediately after is totally alien to me.

I do know that many readers replay the games regularly, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to replay mods.

Let me know of any interesting stories or anecdotes you have of replaying stuff.

Your flashbulb memories of Half-Life games.

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

Wikipedia defines Flashbulb Memories as “a highly detailed, exceptionally vivid ‘snapshot’ of the moment and circumstances in which a piece of surprising and consequential (or emotionally arousing) news was heard.”

We normally associate flashbulb memories with incredibly sociological events and I in no way want to belittle these types of events or their consequences by comparing our mini-memories of videos games to these events.

Poll Question 263 – Do you own any Valve merchandise?

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

So, you probably saw that thing about some toy being stolen from some toy fair.

Forgive the condescending “some” but I really don’t think it’s news.

Prisoner – Half-Life

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

“Prisoner is a set of maps for the game Half Life. Unlike most custom Half Life levels, Prisoner does not feature new weapons, monsters, or gameplay elements.

In fact, Prisoner does not feature any weapons, monsters, or gameplay of any kind. Prisoner is a small art project about virtual space and first person perspective.

Operation Black Mesa and Guard Duty Interview

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

Well, here’s an interesting interview I just had with the guys working on Operation Black Mesa and Guard Duty.

There’s an announcement at the beginning, along with a couple of exclusive screenshots, one piece of concept art and a wallpaper.

I am sure the guys will be dropping by, so if you have any questions for them, just ask, although I can’t guarantee they will answer them.

Games Room – Half-Life 2: Ep2

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

“Your goal is to open the main door, by finding 4 numbers to the door code.

You can obtain this numbers by winning in 4 games. You can also guess all numbers just by rotating the wheels (but this is very unlikely). For now the door code is fixed, that’s mean is not random and it’s always the same.

After you beat the map for the first time, you know the code. My next step is to implement random generated code for the door.

There is no story. Just do whatever you want to do and have fun. Try everything in gameroom.”
