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.

The Modcast is back for another week of news, features and releases for you all to enjoy. In this weeks episode Brian is back as well as the new face AJ Hallmon from the Source Developers Club here on ModDB.

Ha, we got mentioned on the modcast :)
Some extra info needs to be added related to the AvP2 online community: I am not the only guy behind keeping AvP2 online. Jeff (his nickname on is The_One) also plays an important part, hosting the server, providing various interfaces for third party game broswer-like tools and so on.

Regarding the mod itself, Brian got closer to what we aim for: play AvP2 (keep the universe) in a different style, by adding new game modes, objective based instead of frag based. The Team Fortress concept provides that. Another thing that we aim to enforce is better teamwork and the class system from TF is designed with that in mind.

I guess that these two (teamwork + objective base gameplay) guarantees that Team Fortress mods will still be made, for almost each FPS that is launched.

Crysis Team Fortress, anyone?

Duke Theft Auto is a remake of Grand Theft Auto 1 only. GTA/DTA II will be the next project. ;)

I think I didn't explain the new engine to well. I will address about it more in depth in the next update, when ever that is. :)

Hey guys,
I'm the leader and programmer for FragOut and I thought I'd clear up some things:
The gamemodes aren't just dm, currently there's a adapted form of deathmatch but with rounds and "survival bonus" which allows you to score more points for staying alive.

There's also a teammode which is Last Team Standing, if you played PVK2, Unreal Tournament, etc etc you may know it, two teams pitted against each other, each player has 1 life, if they die they have to sit out the (short) round, first team to kill off the other team wins.

As for released status, it's not released anywhere, it's still in Closed Beta with a some beta testers on the team, however some outsiders have gotten the chance to play it, such as CubicVirtuoso from Podcast17 and Editor321 from Half-Life creations.

About the windgrenade, if you're unclear what it does, watch this:

Like said it launches people away, but the most usefull propierty is launching yourself away, there's some maps that make heavy use of this, putting the holy hand grenade(a super grenade) into spots reachable only by using the sailboat.

As for future plans, FragOut isn't gonna release anytime soon, there's still a bunch of stuff to do and we are still moving further and further away from the HL2 universe... but you may see more of that soon.
Gamemodes are still something I'm thinking about, so they're not definitive.

I'm also sad so few people take the mod seriously, it's got wacky stuff for sure, but we are working hard to make the gameplay balanced, enjoyable and provide a fun new experience that will last for longer then 1 hour.
So ... don't be too fooled by the wacky looks, there's crazy stuff, but care will be taken to balance it all.

(not sure why it replied) I put it as a new post

Nah I didn't get offended it's just for some reason stuff related to my mod is the only thing which seems to be able to get through my thick skin and really annoy me. ¬¬

Yeah I released that gameplay video just because of Ryan ;) :P

Awesome guys, just such a laugh! :D

Also, Mortewood main character is "Eric Slade", not "John".

Sorry AJ but you failed there, why don't you go back to your bungie! :P

Haha thanks for including me, it was awesome!

To ajhallmon: Just read a bit about the stuff you are going to talk about on the modcast. Write down some short notes about each mod. That way you will be better prepared and have more to say than just a couple of words (you know what I mean).

Excellent Modcast! I think the new style (less length, more essential discussions) sounds pretty good.

Melee will never die. It's still playing strong and will continue until the end of gaming aka the end of this world.
