I'm a long time mod player, from France. I've played hundred GoldSrc/Source map's and mod's. I've also done some french translations : Cry of Fear, Half-Life (Update mod), Underhell (abandoned. Too much work for one man... if someone else is interested, he's welcome to contact me). I'm usually friendly in my reviews because mod's are free and need hard work from usually amateurs. However, I'm a diehard opponent towards paying mods. Donation is a better system for this kind of thing. I'll usually be harsh towards such mods if they're too much "vanilla".

It looks like Ruins of Chronos or Between World and Chaos (the bonus level) but now with enemies.

I think Zeitgeist is too much of a project to "begin" here on moddb, seriously you're fighting in the AAA sphere, you won't be able to do it without the support of a Professional company.

As TIS is a "total conversion", I don't think it'll fit with PlanetPhillip/RTSL usual policy... you know, "vanilla" mod's...

DarkShift @ Sad news, legal issues, lack of time.

Damn, that's such a pain in the ***.

Of course I understand Valve issues with your project, but still, I hope some people will come to help you, it was such a nice way to refresh our 18 year old favorite game.

Well, I hope many people will play it, I was lucky to beta test it, it is top tier in HL2 modding, impressive work, really. A nice trip in Lovecraft universe.

DarkShift @ Half-Life : Residual Life

You can keep him alive until the portal in "ground zero" just before "between world and chaos"/"no way out". Because there is a ladder he can't pass, before that portal.

It's just a little challenge... And it can't be done if you want to get all achievements because he can't go on "one is all, all is one"

DarkShift @ FPS Final Bosses

Many of them but not everything. In fact it's more the oldie's I know, than the new ones, I'm a bit disappointed by the current state of solo FPS...

I'm interested in FPS lore so I checked internet or youtube for some of them.

DarkShift @ From Earth

Prospekt is 10 bucks and this one is free...

Well, I'm only at the beginning but after some years knowing your work (Human Error, Water, Last Zombie, this one), go on with your first indie game, send your portfolio everywhere, I mean you're really good, at least "above average"...

It'd be a shame the general VG playing people don't see your work. Get a studio, a producer, do redux versions of Water (a masterpiece!!) or this one, or do a completly new project, whatever, but this can't stay on the "amateur" scene forever.

lol, it's usual with moddb XD, don't worry, we always get the articles before the files...

Anyways, I'll be sleeping in 2 hours, and I'm already busy with From Earth after playing the Closure, but I'll sure give it at least a try this week end, and then fully next week... TOO MUCH EPIC RELEASES THIS MONTH!!!

But the guy works alone (or nearly). That, and besides the mod not fitting in "Half Life lore", the mapping is good.

I mean, maybe your mod will be faithful to HL but the mapping and gameplay could still be ******.

I agree Leon shouldn't have called it "Half Life 2 Episode 3" because it's really his "own" version but respect to the original universe should really be considerered a minor issue, especially for a free mod developed by a one-man army.
And especially if people knew really Leon's previous works, I mean it was the same with Coastline and Strider Mountain.

Hell, people can't stop to defend that ****** Prospekt because it was developed by a single guy, why can't people defend Leon because he's been doing the same for free, for 6 years, a way longer gameplay, and both have some issues with HL lore?

Ha, I just discovered you can have 2 endings

In fact, I thought about it during that sniper scene with Barney and Alyx but for some reason only Barney died each time.
I tried later and yes Alyx can also die, and Barney lives...

But seriously, I prefer the ending with Alyx, more romance XD.

Ok, it's over, 9/10 well deserved. Very entertaining from the beginning to the end.
I'll let you read my review, all is in it...

Good luck for the future and thank you.

Map 18/35. Halfway through, I must say it gets better and better. There is some HUGE map's in various places, map 11 where you have to activate all these stairs, bridges is especially good. The others are fun too, Nice effect with the molten lava.

It's not just the map's. The gameplay has also greatly improved, I mean better than in the first map's, for example the séquence with trenchs and antlions where you have to sneak and go Stealth.

Of course, this will never be the HL2 épisode Three we all dreamed about, but the more I play and I advance, the more I'm surprised in a good way. Can' wait to see the next half.

Map 11/35 so far.
Like the previous ones (Coastline, Strider Mountain) it's the "so bad it's good" kind of mod.

The map's are a clusterfuck of everything you can imagine, plants, caves, spaceships, for some reason you get back to the map of T minus One where you launched the Rocket but it is no more located in white forest...

Like every Leon's map's, you fight countless waves of enemies, sometimes appearing out of nowhere (like the Antlions workers, sometimes they "pop" out in front of you), re-skinned for no reason at all... (Lava headcrabs?? The ****). However, the reskin is "refreshing", IMHO.

There is the usual flaws, like a totally useless car sequence where you get blocked after racing 10 meters, lol.

But there is also cool battles, like one against Antlions Guards versus Striders, numerous antlions... Cool music also.

The story and overall the mod makes no sense, it reminds me a lot of the Gate 2, but a lot more "friendly" towards the player, in the sense there are tough and numerous battles but a lot of healthpacks/ammo.

Well, Seriously, it's hilarious. There is one séquence where you watch a giant comic's drawn by the dev' himself, etc....

It's really the "love it or leave it" kind of mod. I Wonder aslo who beta tested it besides Léon' himself.
