Multiplayer Beta 1.0.1 Patch Released

We released Beta 1.0 of Half-Life 2: Wars a little over a week ago, and the response has been overwhelming. We'd like to thank all of you for your comments, suggestions, and feedback on the beta, and encourage all of you to stop by our forums and tell us what you think if you haven't done so already...

Re: Application from L34D as a Level Designer

Good stuff. We would like to see screens of what you're working on. If you want to make a HL2: Wars map, you are welcome to - if it's good enough we will include it in the mod, and potentially bring you on as a level designer.

Multiplayer Beta 1.0 Released!

It’s been three long years since Half-Life 2: Wars first exploded onto the Source modding scene with Beta 0.1 back in November 2007, and almost two and a half years since our last public release, Beta 0.5 of July 2008. Today we are happy to announce the release of Beta 1.0, the first multiplayer p...

Re: The Walking Dead

The first episode I watched, I got to see zombies pick up rocks to try and break a door made of plexiglass. Which immediately made me turn it off. Yeah I have some bones to pick with the series too. The zombies trying to break the door with rocks, zombies climbing ladders (slowly) and fences, and o...

The Walking Dead

Anyone been watching The Walking Dead? It's a new series on AMC that premiered on Halloween. It's about a zombie apocalypse and is based on a series of really popular American comic books by the same name. The second episode just came on last night. I have to say it's fucking awesome. If you haven't...

Re: Starcraft II

I spent all weekend watching the MLG Dallas SC2 national championship, which is the biggest north american SC2 tournament. Jinro beat out TT1 to win it. Literally all my gf and I did this weekend was watch the tournament though (it started Friday afternoon, all day Saturday, and most of Sunday). Any...

Re: Antlion Demo Trailer and Imminent Release

Yep. We've decided to delay the release a bit in order to include another gamemode called "Overrun", which is a Co-op vs. AI gamemode in which each player plays as the Combine against endless waves of Antlions. We will be publishing a newspost here and on Moddb within the next few days about this, a...

Re: Final

I'm a month late, but I was pulling for NL in the final (and basically for the whole time after the US was knocked out by Ghana again). Hell of a game. The World Cup got huge attention in the US this year, which is very new and unusual since soccer/football is not very popular here.

Re: Alein swarm

I played a fair bit of this (a lot with Biotec) until Starcraft 2 came out and devoured my free time for gaming. Pretty boring except on Insane, or trying to do speedruns. Once you play a little bit of insane (like L4D expert) you can't really enjoy any easier level because it's too simple and one p...

Re: Installing the New HL2 Wars

Yes, it will be a completely new build. Having the old beta 0.5 release installed will make no difference (I have both installed)

Re: Favourite video game quote.

If you're talking about the "quake" sound pack that's used on gaming servers for tons of game (headshot, double kill, multi kill, first blood etc) then 99% of the time they are sounds from Unreal Tournament (original UT99) which themselves are based on the Quake 3 announcer. I'd say most of my favor...

Re: What are you guys doing these days?

Sander has been optimizing the performance and AI mostly, and fixing bugs, and I've been mostly just doing schoolwork/exams until a week ago. I'm working on a map so we have a couple for the demo and we're playtesting the builds to see how to make it the best experience possible.
