Firearms: Source is a team based first person shooter, rooted in the traditions of the Firearms mod for Half-Life. Firearms: Source brings the best aspects of Firearms to the Source engine, and then takes them a step further. You'll see a host of familiar weapons and maps, but you'll find the streamlined game play to be faster, focusing on aggressive, skilled play. From nearly the moment you spawn you can expect to be engaged in furious action.

It's always got something to do with Left 4 Dead and TF2, what i think they need to do is start talking about topics instead of ranting half the time.

I don't want to start something, but I'm pretty sure more than half this episode was about Smashball. Where do you get that it was about TF2 or L4D2. We hate talking about those things lol

you talk bad words for bisounours party and you didn't even play it for yourself, the colour scheme is verry trippy LSD style, maybe you don't like it But many do and I'm one of them + the gameplay is freakn awesome

other then that, great podcast

I would prefer a video tho

Wait until we post this weeks episode on moddb, we talk about the release and give a much better review of Bisounours.

Yah i think bisonours party was really good. Podcast 17 talk bad about almost every mod that isn't really good though. Mods are for fun and not supposed to be big commercial games i think podcast 17 team forget this alot of the time.

"So, you hear that, Maxsi? You're gonna get shot. So watch out."

Apart for death-threats - it was a fun surprise to be featured on this podcast. And Maxsi Distribution has been in development for over a year and has been working for over 6 months, way before you mentioned it on this podcast. And the system is free in the first place - anyone can use the system if they provide the bandwidth themselves, unless they go through a simple application process like discussed in the podcast.

It was also surprising to have a private email to matthewdryden qouted, but I don't mind it. ;-)

You should really check your facts Podcast17. Firearms:Source released their player models LAST MONTH.

There are no more CSS placeholder models. I hope you amend this fact in your next podcast.

Yeah. At around 15:00 they are very right. That's something really urgent.

I played Residual Point, and there's a section where I can't go any further because of a bug that crashes in the On A Rail chapter. Where you evade the turret going out to the tracks, but when you try to come back it goes kaput.
