Back on June 27, Phillip Marlowe wrote an article thanking William McMahon for all his work on Podcast 17 and in the Half-Life community. He spoke of his dedication and love for the game and the people who play it , and it was an extremely thoughtful thing for Phillip to do.
Phillip runs his own website, PlanetPhillip, where he reviews mods and maps for the Half-Life and Portal games along with providing download mirrors and forums. He doesn’t plaster his sites with ads nor demand attention to himself, something that we here at Lambda Generation love to do.
when i heard the first voice of wheatley i thought OMG PHILLIP GOT THE GIG
Oh, yes, he’s really a lovely person who really cares about what he loves and it really shows. The dedications he puts is jaw-dropping. I’ve been follow him for a couple of years now, not only because the content he has to offer, but also for being a great guy.
That’s why he goes on the “really awesome” box.
Thank you for all your kind words. I do enjoy helping people and I am slightly younger than Mother Teresa.
The Philip Marlowe novels rock. Unfortunately I am nothing like that particular character – he’s a hard ass – I’m a soft cuddly teddybear.
Hopefully, I can continue to contribute to the community for a number of years yet.

Falsifying evidence? Into the dungeon with you, Pinkyman.
Yes Nic,helping people is a lost art these days.Thankfully people like Phillip are still around.
Phillip is the Mother Teresa of the Half-Life Community. He’s about just as old as her too… lawlz. Seriously though Phillip is really what started Podcast 17 – if it wasn’t for him none of my glorious enterprise would not be possible.
Wait… there is a double negative in there. “If it wasn’t for him none of my glorious enterprise would be possible”.
“CHUMTOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAADS”, eh, Will? =P
Oh, and the Philip Marlowe detective novels are the best things I have ever read.
He also seems to genuinely enjoy helping people for the sake of helping. Something that the world as a whole should aspire to.
We salute you, Field Marshal Marlowe.
