“You are, as always, Gordon Freeman. After you got that mess the scientists made under control, the scientists and the government have set up a research lab, called New Mexico Alien Reasearch Center. This lab is, of course, secret.
Maybe the questions isn’t as clear as it should be, but what I am asking about is the frequency rather than any reference to “style”. That could be a whole other topic!
To be honest, I play as much as I want as often as I want, in fact, I generally prefer it when it rains, so I don’t feel guilty sitting in front of my PC when the sun is shining.

“In a last-ditch attempt to escape Black Mesa with their lives, a militia of scientists, among them Gordon Freeman from Sector C, swarmed a small airstrip and hijacked the helicopters there, intending to fly them to the nearest major city and safety.
There were many casualties but the plan seemed to be successful – the survivors got the aircraft up and it did not appear that they were being pursued…things looked optimistic.”
I don’t make a post for every new website I add to my links page, but some are more interesting than others.
I have had this one my list of sites to add for about a month now, but got an email from the author today asking me to mention the site. He also included a map he is working on which was very good, and I look forward to playing the whole mod when it’s finished.
The site is called Level Design Theory – Single Player Mapping and whilst I don’t agree with everything written, I think it’s a great blog and deserves some PP Love.
So head on over there and read what he has to say and make sure you add come comments. Enjoy.

At the end of Half-Life, you had the choice to work for the GMan or to take a little lethal trip with some really nasty travel companions. After all you had done since the first accident in the test lab of the Black Mesa complex you really didn’t want to die now in some stupid way so you accepted the proposal, hoping secretly that you would have another occasion to screw up this strange man with his little briefcase.
Half-Life: Chronicles once again places you in the boots of scientist Gordon Freeman. Trapped in the Black Mesa Research Facility, and persued by humans and aliens alike, you must use your wits (as well as firepower) to stay alive. However, Chronicles takes place in what could be called an “alternate timeline” wherein certain events in Half-Life unfolded differently.
