PC Games published the very first InGame Trailer and HD screenshots of SHIFT, the upcoming Half-Life 2 Total Conversion.
Pretty cool, actually. Too bad the advertisements kept blocking the video =/
how do you not have adblockplus?
If everybody used adblockplus, non of the free gaming sites we visit would exist.
Source engine is not maxed out. Just look at HL2 E2, L4D2 or portal on PC the games look amazing.
keep telling yourself that. :)
They just have to keep pushing it. I just wish it made use of bump maps. I love bump maps.
The tv show Pimp my ride where they take a crappy car and start throwing things ontop of it to make it look nice The original Quake engine was good for its time but its ancient now which the Source engine and Modern Warfare engine are They are both based off old technology during the Quake 1/2 era and they've managed to add enhancements to keep it looking Alright
This is why PC gaming is awesome, mod making inspires not only gamers but companies to create new games.
Half life mods are nothing more then a broke mans dev kit. Its like riding a moped. Its fun until normal people start laughing at you.
You clearly haven't played mods. Hidden Source, Zombie Panic Source are a few to be named. Plus those total conversion mods like... dare I say... Black Mesa Source? So yeah, keep telling that yourself that mods are nothing.
at 3, HoN FTW I <3 pebbles.
neat another mod for hl2 ! My fav still remains research & developpement
Of all the pc games ever created, you guys like Half Life the best?! Wow.
What makes Half Life so amazing?!! Seriously that game put me off when I first glanced at the characters, they were so uninspiring. The dude with the glasses and that girl... It was dreary
sure halo ODST is so much better. oh wait.. any gamer simply can't deny HL serie. You might not like it, but it's one of the best game ever
It might be one of the best games ever if you like creating mods. Other then that its a generic shooter at best. Sure the portal gun is sorta cool, but really, what separates itself from all the other shooters out there besides using the same source engine for the past 10 years? Oh teh mods, dude, I pay for my games so I dont have to make crappy mods to have fun. LOL! I love it when pc gamers brag about Half Life, and yet cant give a definitive reason why its soo awesome. Wanna brag about a pc game? Play Total War 2. Half life is really one of the most boring and over hyped games in ever created.
You have to take into account when HL and HL2 were made, at the time each game was released no other game could hold a candle to them. The fact that the games can be modded in so many ways gives people who want to get into game design all the tools they need. And although you may think they are generic, those two games are more critically acclaimed than any other fps games out there, and have been enjoyed by a huge amount of people. You don't like the games so that means others don't or shouldn't because your opinion counts so much? Guess what, no one cares what you think. But hey, keep on hating. Whatever floats your boat :)
Only gamers who are relatively new to playing games can ever dis HL and HL2. I was brought up on old skool stuff like the speccy, C64, AMIGA and ST. Consoles were proper ass back then!!! Once 1st person games like wolfy and of course Doom, the reason I blew an entire student loan, came out, that was the way forward. Only problem was the storyline sucked ass. HL went a huge distance in creating a believable universe. And the character of Freeman was genius! Why do we always have HE-MAN sized main characters that nobody can relate to? He was the guy next door kind of man and thats why people bought into it. And thats why people are still hankering after the next HL2 episode, me included. Nuff said :-)
New to playing games? Dude, Im 28 and have every console ever created since the 2600. Im a true gamer. Not biased unlike everyone on this site. Again, you say story and the main character, and for some reason I get this sleepying feeling. The story is the same as every other shooter, but your right, instead of hercules, you got super nerd. Which is hardly believable. Im sorry, but portal and gravity guns, and a relationship with a psychotic robot is the far from it. Maybe its cause your a hard core nerd is why you like it? I respect your opinion, but it hardly stands against my argument that HL brought nothing new or worth mentioning when compared to current gen games. Put in Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, MW2, or Bad company 2 and tell me that Half life stands up to those games. I dare you.
@7.1 No one on here said HL2 was the best game ever made, you came out with that assumption for some reason. You're comparing a 2004 made game with current gen? This game was on Xbox, compare it to Halo...(which HL2 is leaps and bounds ahead of) You're missing the whole point of mods, they are not supposed to be award winning AAA games which seems to be all you care about. It allows the community to express their creativity, and possibly want to go on into game development. Counterstrike, Tactical Intervention, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, Killing Floor, Team Fortress 2 come to mind of games spawned from mods. Yes I enjoyed Uncharted 2 and Killzone, and yes they are GREAT games I have a PS3 and Xbox, shocking I know. But there's something about the HL universe and story that puts it up in my top 5, note, not my number 1. edit-I have over 60 hours logged on Killing Floor, and it was $15.
"Put in Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, MW2, or Bad company 2 and tell me that Half life stands up to those games." Actually, it does in gameplay and fun. And it's a 5 year old game, why don't you try to be fair and at least compare it to big games around 2004, like Doom 3 and Halo. I find also it ironic how you complain about Half-life 2 having a crappy story, yet you praise Modern Warfare 2 and Killzone 2 which have pretty bad stories with alot of plot holes.
you're a tool. you spent all your comments in a matter of 5 minutes tryin to change ppl's minds about the game and tryin to say you have the best view point? give me a break. HL2 is one of the best games i've ever played, i enjoyed every minute of it and i've played through it more than any other single player game. do i expect everyone to feel the same way? no. do i need to leave 5 comments on a single article convincing ppl of that? no. are you a tool? yes. now go play your generic FPS's and GTF out of articles about games related to real innovation. i mean...come on...how can a real gamer even attempt to compare killzone to half life. you think half life is generic but then praise up that game? really??? exactly what puzzles did killzone incorporate in the gameplay utilizing physics and various weapons? what unique enemy classes did it introduce? what original story elements or plot did it posses? you're a joke dude. and on top of all that...what exactly does your ridiculous, flawed, uninformed perspective have to do with a mod?
not bad for source. it's going to have loads of matt finished cars i suspect due to the source engines poor reflections which will make it look less impressive to other racing games, however seeming this is a mod it's got to be compared to other previous mods which were racing titles and by just comparing those titles i'd say this is up there if not the most impressive so far. @TABSF, your living in a differant world to me
chak_ - 1 hour ago PM Track Ignore 5.2 - sure halo ODST is so much better. oh wait.. any gamer simply can't deny HL serie. You might not like it, but it's one of the best game ever If you were part of that coversation, which you weren't, then your agreeing with him and not me. Which is fine, I know how fanboys are strong in numbers on this website. LIke I care. LOL!
whatever. I'm still playing HL2 (and mods) very often, and you won't convince me that game is just meh. Now if you don't like, fine.
shows you how much difference funding, high quality dev teams and graphics engines make. GT5 has 450,000 polygons per car, compared to the 20,000 in this mod
For an aging Engine, that's still not bad. I would love to see Source 3.0, a new one this time.
we'll see a new engine when HL3 is officially announced. considering we still haven't seen episode 3 yet and considering how decent source still looks, it'll probably be at least another year. but, i'm sure they have been building the new engine for a while now. AND, i'm sure when we do see it, it'll be as amazing and as versatile as Source has been.
@ Blaster_Master Whats with the hostility dude? "Maybe its cause your a hard core nerd is why you like it? I respect your opinion, but it hardly stands against my argument that HL brought nothing new or worth mentioning when compared to current gen games. Put in Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, MW2, or Bad company 2 and tell me that Half life stands up to those games. I dare you. " Ah man I loved the part of hardcore nerd. Then you say you respect my opinion but really it doesn't mean sh*t when compared with your own. HAHAHA quality gag man :-) And finally to your lame challenge, I say lame because you say you're actually 28 years old! Comparing these newer releases to a game that must be 10 years old is foolish. We are always blown away by what has been achieved at the time. Devs in the middle to late 90's and much less power to play with than today. However, with Half-Life, they managed to harness that limited power and create a stunning game for the time with great narrative and character interaction. AI at that time was still in its infancy but you actually believed the aliens were trying to guess your actions. And the section where you scaled a cliff face and took on a helicopter and several marines still sticks out in my mind today. Furthermore the mods that were created were absolutley fantastic. If you truly are a 'hardcore' gamer then you must of wasted weeks and months playing the original counter strike, even over dial-up connections!! How do you like those apples????
