Half-Life Backwarding?

Half-Life

Recently, GoldSrc speedrunner “quadrazid“, previously famous for his 20 minute Half-Life 1 speedrun, uploaded a video of what he calls “Half-Life Backwarding”, which is exactly what it is.

In the short video, quadazid attempts to make his way through various Half-Life levels such as the Hazard Course as fast as he can, but this time facing backwards.

If you thought normal Half-Life speedruns are crazy enough, then this has just taken it to a whole new level.

Despite the age, Half-Life is a game that many set their sights on, mainly for the challenge that is speedrunning. You know, the thing where people try to beat a game as fast as humanly possible, with or without scripts. And loads of bunny hops and grenade jumps. Loads of ’em.

Using a mod that restores Half-Life to its original 2001 version, a group of people has after 4 years of preparation and practice managed to beat the world record speedrun of 27 minutes, with a whopping 20 minutes and 41 seconds clear time.

Welcome to the New LambdaGeneration!

Other Welcome to the New LambdaGeneration!

Hello and welcome to the new LambdaGeneration!

It’s been a while since LambdaGeneration was last on your screens, but the good news is we’re back and ready to re-serve the Valve Community with a whole line of new features and fresh content.

You maybe asking: Why did LambdaGeneration go offline for so long?

Well the answer to that lies between two factors, one being our hosting expired, which would have cost a lot of money and time to renew and restore the previous site. The other, being that the site was already in a poor state due to the departure of Vic and the general lack of content at the time. It was therefore decided to hold the site and focus all efforts on creating the new one.

You may also be wondering: How come it took so long?

The answer to that is of course, Valve Time. (Or that making a bespoke WordPress theme from scratch is pretty damn hard!)
