Modder for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, Amnesia, Crysis series, some of which have won Crytek community awards (most popular) while one of my S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mods has been featured in German PC gaming magazines "PC Games" and "PC Action". Many thanks to SetaKat and david.m.e for teaching me all the tricks to modding S.T.A.L.K.E.R. I'm an amateur programmer. The only honest hardware/game reviewer in the world, see GND-Tech.com (worthy mods may even get an article), Stalker.wikia admin, Cooler Master product beta tester, etc. I write coherent reviews for mods on ModDB. I mostly play Dragon Age series, Mass Effect series, The Elder Scrolls series, 3D Fallout series, Neverwinter Nights 2 and its expansions, KOTOR series, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, Amnesia and SOMA. But I'm always up for some Natural Selection 2, No More Room in Hell, Killing Floor 2, and Serious Sam HD. I only play PAYDAY 2 and ArmA 3 privately, join our community at GND-Tech.com if you'd like to play with us.

MISERY

Mod review - 14 agree - 14 disagree

This is definitely the best existing modification for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat. It pretty much perfects the atmosphere of the Zone in both the look, and the challenges one would face inside of it.

Misery 2.0 is much like modded Fallout 3 and New Vegas: hardcore, open world survival. You have to plan every single course of action you take, and things like this bring a unique level of intensity. The added gameplay complexity is amazing, and the alternate starts really add to the hardcore experience.

Games like this are the reason why I shake my head when people say "The Last of Us" is a good survival game. If only more games would be no-holds-barred like this.

With that being said, Misery 2.0 is in need of some minor tweaking. Headshots should be more damaging, overall bullet count should be lowered, repair kits are one-time use for some reason, some of the prices are strange. Weapon stats are surprisingly unrealistic for a mod like this. Nothing major, ignore the hissy-fit modern casual gamers complaining about the mod.

Nightmare House 2

Mod review

One of the best Source mods out there. Satisfying plot and very tense gameplay.

Underhell

Mod review

Underhell is a unique blend of psychological horror, survival horror, and survival-stealth. It exceeds in every single one of those aspects. The psychological horror and accompanying storytelling is definitely intriguing, the survival horror is more advanced than the classic Resident Evil games and most others, being a true example of a modern survival horror game. The hardcore, realistic survival-stealth gameplay is a nice change from games like Metro: Last Light and Dishonored, in which stealth is a bit too effective.

When playing Underhell, it's obvious that it's the result of a talented individual making his dreams come true. It's visionary, it's something different, since the developers didn't have to cater to mainstream audiences. Although it's different, it still feels somewhat familiar at the same time, so gamers shouldn't be afraid to try it. When playing Underhell, at times it reminded me of Black Mesa/Half Life, classic Resident Evil games, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, classic Silent Hill games, a few of the cutscenes were done similarly to the Metal Gear Solid games, but Underhell's distinctive style always shines through.

It's hard to think of it as a mod due to the quality, attention to detail, and scale. It's hard to find a mod that comes close in any of these regards, not even Black Mesa which is an extraordinary piece of work in itself. Underhell should inspire other developers to make their dream game come true. It's safe to say that Underhell is not only one of the best single-player mods ever made, but also one of the best non-RPG titles out there, especially in recent years.

Don't forget to vote for Underhell on Steam Greenlight!

The Things in the Night

Mod review - 5 agree - 1 disagrees

This is probably my favorite custom campaign. The level designs are extraordinary and you never know what to expect. Plus I liked how some places reminded me of Penumbra, Resident Evil, and Silent Hill. This mod is full of variety and it has to be the longest one out. The only problems I have with it are mostly minor - AI navigation issues, and some items are hidden in seemingly random places.
