New Team Fortress 2 Racing Mod ‘TF2Kart’ Released

Team Fortress

Did Scream Fortress’ bumper cars get you yearning for more Team Fortress karting madness?

“InstantMuffin” from GotSticed, developer of PropHunt TNG and Arena 2.0, has released a new TF2 mod, which is all about racing up to 15 other players in frantic laps around a custom track. There are pickups which allow you to drop bananas, fire rockets at your foe or give yourself a speed boost, among other powerups. I like to time my speed boost right before a huge jump and see how much air time I can clock.

Cut the power with “Power Station 17” for Half-Life 2

Half-Life Cut the power with “Power Station 17” for Half-Life 2

Power station 17 is quite an old map, 5 years old to be exact, but you wouldn’t notice it from playing. There is a level of polish in the visuals and sound that seems wise beyond it’s years and all said and done, it’s just an incredibly fun level to play.

Something that stood out for me during my time with this map is that the pacing is very well implemented. You start off in a very low intensity situation, fighting off zombies and exploring smaller scale environments and the action builds very naturally from this point until at the end you are fighting what feels like the entire Combine army!

To play the level simply head over to the download page at PlanetPhillip and download the level. Extract the contents of the downloaded file into your steam/steamapps/sourcemods directory in steam and you are ready to go (be sure to exit and then reopen steam for the level to appear in your games list!). The level only requires that Half-Life 2 is installed, you will not need episode 1 or 2!

The Stanley Parable Demo Will Explode Your Brain

What exactly is The Stanley Parable? It is an indie remake of a Half-Life 2 mod of the same name, but what was that? A story? A game? A serious commentary on the nature of free will, or just an amusing mod? Even the developers make a point of not explaining themselves, preferring to provide one whimsical contradiction after another. One thing that is certain about The Stanley Parable is that it is coming soon on Steam, and you can download a demo right now.
