Incase the original Half-Life wasn’t gory enough, ‘Brutal Half-Life‘ is an upcoming Goldsrc mod which attempts to add even more blood, gore and gibs to Gordon’s quest through Black Mesa.
When I’m the team’s Medic, I have a golden rule for choosing which teammates to heal:
“All heal targets are equal, but some are more equal than others.”
Unlike other classes who can remain effective even without a clue as to how capable their teammates are, the Medic is wholly dependent on his teammates being able to intelligently use his heals to accomplish objectives, kill teammates and keep the medic himself alive. And that’s going to require the Medic to serve as something of an arbiter, judging his teammates and deciding who gets special treatment. It is impossible to play Medic and heal everyone equally, as much as our altruistic natures impel us to.
So much exciting news has been going on, but so little updates about it. It’s time to fix that…
Many Source mods, new and old, have been taking advantage of Steam Greenlight as of late. From Aperture Tag, to Portal Stories: Mel, to Estranged, and many others to boot! Some authors may be coming under fire for deciding to release their projects on Steam with a price tag. However most want to utilize the Steam service for its advantages in reaching a wider audience, easy installation and regular updates at no cost to the user.

For over a decade, PlanetPhillip.com has been a pillar of the Half-Life community, hosting the widest collection of single-player maps and mods available. Yesterday however, the site shut its proverbial doors for the last time…
Freeman’s Mind is a long-running machinima comedy series which reveals the inner thoughts of Half-Life’s protagonist throughout the original game. After sixty-eight episodes the series has reached its much anticipated conclusion.
In a recent post on the Black Mesa forums, developer Chon “TEXTFAMGUY1” Kemp has posted a couple of screenshots of the maps Gasworks and Stalkyard from the game’s yet to be released multiplayer component.
So far, the adventures of Gordon Freeman have always been told from a first-person perspective (and should probably stay that way). But the Half-Life universe is full of opportunities, and who could pass on the chance of taking a bird’s eye view to command an army of resistance fighters or order a barrage of headcrab shells? Lambda Wars is a real time strategy game that makes all this possible.
