This one is my favorite. Now it seems awesome compared to the huge empty lobby with only a desk

Just that it's still a huge empty lobby... something that's a particular feature of huge... empty... lobbies...

I'm going to look bad for killing the marines... they look so real.

Also on a side note, this might be the first current game (mod remake I guess) to feature killing American troops. I never thought of that.

There has been a few, mainly games like Call of Duty, Battlefield series, and a few misc ones.

But yes, he is fully within his right to kill those Marines; as they'd kill him without batting an eye and laugh about it.

Ah yes BF, I don't know why I didn't think of that. Call of Duty multilayer, also, but I don't think you were ever killing actual American troops in SP. I don't recall the game very well but any Americans being killed were most likely currupt. I don't think the ESRB likes it when players are killing American troops just doing their job. Same thing with 'terrorists'. Russians are okay though ;D

what difference does it make that they're american? USMC are probably one of the most barbaric, unfeeling, bloodthirsty outfits on the planet.

Everyone in a uniform killing people is "Just doing their job," that doesn't make it OK.

personally, I think it's an honest portrayal of the US military's impunity in HL1

indeed but they have they more funding and weaponry at their disposal than the next ten industrialized nations ... combined. They have more to play with so to speak and thus are far more deadly. The war like culture and Soviet like shoot 1st ask questions later as the standard doesn't help either.

There are those in any military that are purely sociopaths out to kill for sport. The rest of them are just stuck in ****** war zones under **** conditions and thus become frustrated and mentally imbalanced also adding fuel to the fire.

Most of them just try to get trough it and watch each others backs out there but still war ***** with your mind and morals.

Except for the IDF. Marines should look at them as role models. Seriously.

You should talk to more Marines if you truely believe that they are bloodthirsty, unfeeling barbarians.

Never said they were barbaric or unfeeling. I'm simply stating that it's not like they're perfect. In fact, I was defending them when I said that. No military force on the planet is without corruption, and the Marines have done their fair share of questionable operations.

Nice stuff, although the textures looks off, especially the beige concrete. Looks low-res almost (notice the lack of AA, is this a grab w/ low res settings? )

Otherwise very nice.
