Avenues of Exploration P2 – Dear Esther

Hi guys! Welcome back to ModInformer’s “Avenues of Exploration”, A series of articles where we explore the rather recent beginnings of a new “Exploration” genre in gaming, or to be more precise: it’s early emergence in the modding scene. You don’t really have to, but for a better perspective, try starting out by...

Avenues of Exploration P1 – THAT

More than just being awesome Robert Yang‘s radiator series of mods is possibly the best example of a certain subset of modding (particularly defined among HL2 modders) called “alt mods”. These “experimental” titles often explore different uses of common (and somewhat less common) tropes of gaming in different contexts and...

Black Mesa Source

Black Mesa Source is a highly ambitious project that has been in development for eight years, and finally released on September 14th, 2012. The first 14 chapters are available immediately, with the final five including the ending to be released alongside Black Mesa: Deathmatch once it is ready. The mod began when two separate teams discovered they were...

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,...

How I Drag Half Life 1 and 2 into 2012

For a little while the Half Life 2 Update has been taking up space on my desktop, but little did I know this would spur my lust for a graphical overhaul mod that does a little bit more than a couple cool visual tweaks with HDR and some bug fixes which have been pointed out by the steam forums. In a nutshell, I’m looking for anything that updates graphics...

Nexuiz gets SteamWorks Support!

If a free weekend wasn't enough , Nexuiz now gets Steamworks support! For those unfamiliar to this game, put simply, its Quake 3 Arena and Unreal Tournament mashed together on the Cryengine 3. As if that wasn't enough...

Need For Speed Underground TexMod

This is Need for Speed Underground ReTextured by Dragozool! There’s not too much to say about it. Same game, but prettier! This is all done through the TexMod tool which injects textures to overwrite originals in Direct3D. Along with the shiny new texture’s Dragozool’s also pre configured an ENB Series shader for Need for Speed Underground for...

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...

ArmA 2: Day Z Mod

If you’ve ever watched The Walking Dead, you know that aside from the severe emotional trauma and the possibility of being eaten alive, a zombie apocalypse is fun as hell. Suddenly nothing costs money, private property only exists under the point of a gun, and shooting that annoying neighbor is totally justified. Aside from your dysfunctional/plucky/murderous...

Morrowind Rebirth Interview

Morrowind Rebirth is a Morrowind Mod[Duh] which is aptly named because it seems to be giving new life to Morrowind. Being a Elder Scrolls fan myself I’ve been tracking the Mod for quite some time on the ‘DB and decided to give Johan (aka Trancemaster) on ModDB a jingle to see if he wants an interview! Well, he came through for us and we produced...
