In the land of Zenozoik, the city of Halstedom is ruled by a powerful clan, one which Ghat has betrayed by committing a terrible sin. Now, Ghat's brothers and sisters are pursuing him and his companion Deadra through strange and twisted lands, beyond the boundaries of the sane to the ends of the world. What was Ghat's crime and why did he commit it? The bare-knuckled brawl to reach the truth has just begun. A fascinating world of grotesque beauty--Equal parts breathtakingly beautiful and utterly disturbing, prepare to be swallowed up in a surreal fantasy world powered by the Source engine. Explore lush environments and confront bizarre animal-humanoid foes on your mission of discovery and redemption. Visceral first person fighting--Combat is up close, personal, and entirely satisfying. Start with a series of punches, kicks, and grabs, follow up with a knee to the enemy's face, and hit him with a finishing move to send him flying yards away. Learn new moves to mix it up.

Another week another cast, this time the recall is dropped due to lack of releases this week but not to worry as the editors of ModDB spill the beans on the MOTY 2008 Editors Choice!

    Killing other player with the katana can be satisfying especially after duelling them, until a rocket heavy takes you both out. Katana is a popular attack weapon and the rush and attack with the katana is a popular tactic.
    The, what you’ve been playing jingle, well err…no.
    Overall a good modcast and the explanation for the editor’s choice awards was nicely explained.

    Yeah, good explanation for Black Mesa Source. I tried convincing the guys to make a demo, but I ended up getting the forum troll treatment.

    a bunch of guys have recently updated all the map walkthroughs for all the official objective based maps on the dystopia wiki so definitely worth a look if you are new to the game. just click on the map pictures and then there will be a link to the walkthroughs for each map
