There Goes the Neighborhood! Ghetto Blaster is a multiplayer mod for Half-Life 2 that is half first-person shooter and half racing. Team one scores by racing their cars as many laps around the city blocks as possible. Team two must shoot the cars (which have hit points) to pieces. After all cars are wrecked, the teams switch. The levels, characters, weapons, and soundtrack all have an inner-city theme (hence the title). For the first Beta release, GB will be strictly drivers versus shooters. Later releases will include very clever takes on Capture the Flag, Attack / Defend, VIP, and so on. Look for Bots (i.e. police and ghetto zombies) to play an interesting role in the future, too. Think Carmageddon meets Smash TV. Driving, drifting, and shooting-- together at last. A promotional mp3 is available for download here: Remember: No one is elite in the Ghetto.
