Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, and find yourself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. You must rescue the world from the wrong you unleashed back at Black Mesa.

The original Half-Life sent a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title won more than 50 Game of the Year awards, was named "Best Game Ever" by PC Gamer, and launched a franchise which has since sold over 11 million units worldwide. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original Half-Life and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player’s presence affects everything around him or her, from the physical environment to the behaviors and even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

Technical note: most mods “for Half-Life 2” are actually cross-compatible with all of Valve's Source engine games. Check a mod’s profile for details on whether a specific game is needed.

About Silent Hill: Alchemilla with 20 comments by Diolator on Dec 15th, 2014

Hello again, dear players and fans of Silent Hill games. We are planning to release our game, Alchemilla, as soon as possible. It will be end of December or first days of January, but we will try to bring it to you BEFORE 2015.

There are still quite a lot work to do especially with testing bugs and etc. We want to polish all things for you comfortable play.

It was REALLY hard to accept that fact that game WOULD NOT include: inventory system, melee or fire combat system, NPC`s interactions. (cause we cant find guys who could work with that kind of stuff seriosly and steadely)

This game is just a quest/hidden object (adventure type based game) in Silent Hill universe.

Today we have a nice video trailer for you. See you next time.

This is the best game ever. What's better is you don't have to run out to the store to get it. You don't even need an internet conection.
Just take any three of the following games;
Star Wars (any)
Tomb Raider (any)
HL 1
BF 1942
Pac Man
Starfleet Command (any)

Smash three of this games into a blender and get a copy of the Battlefield Earth (great book horrible movie) and toss this in as well.
After about an hour, take all of the shards, silvery dust and glittering hunks of plastice and rub it into you chest. Do this until you realize you are stupid.
Rinse and Repeat.

Sadly it never ends for Gordon Freeman, he is gaming worlds Jack Bauer, consistently going from one bad day to the next. No sooner have you blown up the head of the Xenian Nihilanth and discussed career prospects with the mysterious G-Man than he tosses you in the mix again. Another train ride another mysterious situation leaving Gordon (and you the gamer) none the wiser, but thats what we like about the Half-life series and all it's canonical universe, Valve will always give you a Palm d'or plot…
