SCENARIO

In "Get a Life" you embody Alexander Zemlinsky, a subway technician suffering from leukaemia.
Alex is not, unlike the protagonists in most games, an invincible super-soldier. But you wouldn't call him normal either, because there is something in his past that connects him with the events that are about to happen in the course of the story (we want to keep the suspense, so nothing more on that...). "Get a Life" will feature different environment settings presented in more than 24 maps, all of them connected to the scenario of the mod. GaL will offer about 11 hours of pure gameplay pleasure.

FEATURES

  • GaL will run on the latest version of the Source Engine, so that means you'll see HDR and the enhanced shadow system (as seen in HL2: Episode 1) in "Get a Life" as well
  • To give the player the best gaming experience possible, GaL will offer a custom HUD, an innovative healing system with several damage zones, drugs that will trigger a "bullet-time" effect, upgradeable weapons and enhanced enemy AI
  • About 11 hours of gameplay
  • 24 maps with varied environments
  • 61 characters
  • 13 weapons

For more information visit the official "Get a Life" website and the french/english forums.

Hi everyone !

You were a lot to download Get A Life, and we hope you enjoyed it.

But
some people complains about the difficulty of the mod and some bugs.
Even if the beta-tests helps to reduce the number of bugs, when a mod
is released there are often surprises, and GAL was no exception to the
rule.

We thought about it, and today we' re releasing patch that brings two modifications :

-For those who finds the mod to hard, they can totally desactivate the bleeding system by a simple manipulation. Clic here to see the illustration
-Correction of script bugs, abnormal deaths, bleeding or abnormal vision during the
first chapter and correction of certain bugs during the second chapter

Also
some people suffer from crashes that we cannot solve, this problems
happens in lots of mods currently. It is because of the Source SDK base
from the new steam version (we advise you to disable it) or from the
soundcache.

For those who have the new version of steam, while we are waiting for a patch, use these tips to play :
-Launch the mod
-In the graphic options, choose "windowed mod"
-Launch the first map
-When the map's loaded, choose "full screen mod" in your graphid options menu.

Vu que vous êtes de France, je sais pas si vous passez encore ici mais je suis quand même fier qu'un des meilleurs mod's jamais faits pour Half Life 2 soit français ^^
Une superbe histoire, une total conversion bien menée, du bullet time, un système de gestion des blessures, des zombies bien effrayants...

Vraiment, Get a Life c'était de la bombe!!!

Ha, it's too bad, this is such an amazing mod... I've finished it last year, you should check playthroughs on YouTube.

The ending is an epic piece of sh*t, with a part on a boat, using a crane, and an amazing nearly 20-minute fight with an impressive end boss.

Looking a that : Forums.steampowered.com ,

you need no fix at all and I've got personnally no bug's at all.

Calling it an epic piece of **** implies it's bad. Please take care to avoid looking like a retard in the future.

One of the best HL2 mods I have played to date. The gameplay is fun, never really getting tiring with the ever-changing enemies, combat environments and features which kept me interested every step of the way. The introduction of features like bullet time had me worried at first, but proved to be fun to use and balanced out. The level design is extraordinary, with constantly changing environments that ensure non-linear gameplay. The use of Hl2's physics engine also creates an enjoyable level of…

I'd heard great things about this mod, but after playing I've been left extremely disapointed. It starts off pretty strongly. The story is good from the beginning, different from the many "you are a nameless rebel" or "you are Gordon Freeman" mods. The action is broken up by interesting cut scenes, which progress the story as well as explaining the additional mechanics in the mod. It also introduces some nice new elements, including a very interesting health system, where you must heal different…
