2012 Mod of the Year Results

Player’s Choice: 1] Black Mesa: Source   The amount of work and skill put into this mod, and the professionalism with which it was delivered is nothing short of astounding. If only Valve were working this hard on Half Life 3…         2] DayZ   After falling short of a proposed end-of-year release date, the DayZ project is...

Company of Heroes: Eastern Front Mod 1.700

The Eastern Front mod's team have just released version 1.700 and its only getting better.

Lost Under The Snow

Puzzle games are tricky things. The creators have to get inside the mind of their audiences more than perhaps any other genre, to predict what their behavior is going to be when faced with a certain set of circumstances. Valve is a legendary dabbler in this field. If you have ever listened to the developer commentary mode on Half-Life 2 and even Left 4 Dead,...

Red Alert 3: Revolution

                      Command and Conquer, Red Alert 3 was a difficult game for me to pick up. I am a big fan of strategy games, real time and otherwise, but the level and skill of both macro and micro management demanded for a victory in the online arena turned me off to it. It was a bit like Starcraft: if...

No More Room In Hell – Steam Skin and Updates

For those of you who haven’t heard of it, No More Room in Hell is a Zombie Mod for Half-Life 2 Featuring a sort of Objective Mode where you just have to complete some objectives and get out alive in a chopper, and a Survival Mode where you simply survive as long as you can through as many waves as you can.

Dynamic Zombie Sandbox v.95

Dynamic Zombie Sandbox is a coop multiplayer modification for ArmA 2 that includes a series of missions in which the group must complete varied objectives, which is exactly like the vanilla game except that this time you’re in the dark and surrounded by thousands of flesh eating ghouls. The new .95 release fixes a lot of the bugs that came with the previous...

Skyrim Released, Modification Begins in Earnest

The modders, after waiting about six nanoseconds, begin doing what they do best: putting in all the things that the developers didn’t see fit to include. Some things are common sense, some venture into stranger territory.

Vault 24

If Fallout: New Vegas suffered from one problem, its was scale. No, not the scale of the overworld, that was plenty huge, but the places that inhabit it. Despite the grand sweeping mesas and endless tracks of Nevada sand, after a hundred hours or so you’ve probably seen the inside of every “dungeon”. I, too, reached this point, where one had to...

Battlefield: Good Company?

Things have been happening in the often stagnate world of Battlefield. After a long wait, a lot of promises, and few tangible signs of progress, Battlefield 3’s release trailer walks among us at last. But from this side of the river, October looks as far away as Neptune. What are you going to do to contain yourself until the threequel arrives? If your...

Men of War Mods

Today I am going to review a few modifications for a game you have probably never heard of. Men of War is an old game, made by a fairly obscure developer in one of the former Soviet bloc countries, 1C. The premise is simple: World War 2 real time strategy with the highest amount of realism possible. Tanks can plow through buildings to ambush other tanks,...
