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 Fall of Saigon with 6 comments by awesomepossum on May 25th, 2015

Fall of Saigon Forums

Happy Memorial Day to all of our American Fans! We've been busy working on all sorts of cool stuff at Fall Of Saigon, Today we would like to share some of our newest map prop models for decorating military outposts and forward operation bases.

For the Vietnamese side, we have a surplus Chinese military radio command center model complete with headphones, loudspeaker, and microphone. Along with a well worn oil lamp to help light up their network of military tunnels to surprise the American Forces.


For the American side we have an updated version of the KA-BAR knife with a spiffy new sheath. That can be found lying ready on their bunks or lost between ammo crates.


A makeshift military fortification would be nothing without a hefty pile of sandbags, so we now have a variety of modular sandbag wall models to piece together any type of outpost protection that our troops might need.



And of course what kind of video game would we be if we didn't have a colorful assortment of Oil Drums and Barrels to use for cover! Feast your eyes on their magnificent beauty.

In addition, comparing Doom3's recommended requirements (That's not the minimum) with HL2's minimum makes you all the more ignorant (and don't accuse me of being MJ with that comment either)

What's so "innovative" about HL2 then?

"5 years of work"? Explain all the orange placeholder textures in those screenshots with that claim at the time. 5 months more like it. Or perhaps even less....

That's an antlion, not one of the ST aliens. Bad joke. If there were 7000 of the antlions and 300 dead humans on the ground, then it'd be like Starship Troopers.

Dragonlord... you're wrong in every way. The game has been in development for five (closer to six, now) years. Half-Life, one of the most popular games of all time, was in development for less than 2 - with an unstabilized team.

The graphics are getting old - they're the worst part of it (and they're still beautiful!). Its the immersion, the gameplay, and the modifications that are so phenomenal. I'm a HL2 fanboy and I know everything there is to know about it... so next time, before you make an uninformed and retarded post, read up on it first.

Doom 3 is going to be awesome graphics-wise and sounds-wise (Trent Reznor, of Nine Inch Nails, is doing the music!), but id Software has been lacking in innovation... it will be mediocre. For those of us that can run it.

Minimum bare-bones lowest setting requirements for Doom 3:
2ghz p4, 128mg gfx, 512mg RAM.

Minimum HL2 requirements: <1gb pIII, 32mg? gfx
The HL2 Source engine is far more refined than the Doom 3 engine is, and can adapt to most hardware.

HL2>Doom III

I heard it's comming the end of this summer (2004) so you can rant and wine then. :rolleyes:

And I don't see how doomIII is so great. just good graphics, that's all.

I think most of the dev team has OCD.

Don't they have pills for that now?

how can you praise a game you don't know yet then too? i'm just convinced it will NOT kick *** (in the graphics dep sure but who cares grahics... that's only for benchmark kiddies). unless the game can proof beeing good i do not praise it... and in contrast... what i've seen so far made me damn suspicous... suspicous this might become a farting joke. a game that is crap but the mods will be good. isn't it pathetic to make a game only for modding because else it sux? ^_^

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…
