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...

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...

Well, he came through for us and we produced...

GameMods Reddit Portal 2 Contest

When Im not writing an article, playing a mod, or reviewing a mod it seems like I’m doing research on mods. One of my favorite places to linger for up to date and cool Mod News is the GameMods subreddit which features a really good feed of news for all types of mods. Rehabscapi is one of the redditors on that subreddit who is hosting his own little mapping...

Episode 3: The Closure – Leon Brinkmann Interview

I would say Leon "SPYmaps" Brinkman is well known in the Half-Life 2 Modding community for his maps. He's produced 3 full length mods in the time he's been involved with Half-Life 2 and has previously released more content for other games.

Wolfenstein 3D Mods 101

To many, Wolfenstein 3D is considered to be the godfather of all first person shooters. While Wolfenstein 3D wasn’t the first game to be in first person, it was definitely the first game to incorporate a gun in the use of a first person perspective in a 3D environment.  Comparing Wolf3D to many of the modern shooters, the basics are still similar. You got...
