Poll Question 097 – Do you spend more time playing retail games or mods?

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

Besides Half-Life 2 I can’t remember the last retail game I played, let alone finished. I think it was probably the Crysis demo, not sure. Anyway, visitors to PP probably play quite a few mods, so…

There has been new a beta/demo released of the latest version of this mod. Unfortunately the author listed the October 2007 release as final. He has now released a new version. This version contains approximately 1 hour’s worth of gameplay and is approximately 70% of the finished release.

Dachka – Half-Life 2

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

A first map that offers a very simple premise. I’m not sure what that is but it’s fun. There’s no story and I didn’t reach the end, so I can’t tell you what happens.

Moonwalker – Half-Life

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

This is a mod that seems to have slipped under the radar and been more or less ignored. So far it seems a solid production and has surprised me, which is why I added the surprised face to the title image.

Poll Question 096 – Do you buy less PC games because you play mods?

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

I don’t buy many PC games, partly because I don’t have any spare cash to pay with and partly because I run this website and play all the mods I can. That lifestyle choice got me thinking.

Poll Question 095 – Is it time to merge amateur and professional game development?

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

Former Sony CEO Chris Deering recently said “currently only 3 in 10 games recoup their development budgets. … So developers will have to turn to new revenue sources to cover their losses.”
There is little doubt that developing games is becoming harder and harder for so many reasons. It seems to me that the amateur game development community produces incredible work. Therefore I would like to pose a question that should generate much discussion, if few votes…
