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.

I've been working on Ghetto Blaster since Autumn 2002, so I'm not afraid of being labeled a "dead mod" or "the Duke Nukem of HL Source." However, I am once again starting from scratch and I require a development team. If you know anyone who's interested, please don't hesitate to contact me, thanks. Also, if any of my old teammates want to resume work, I'm totally cool with that.

And an Update for Gamers and Future Beta Testers
I've received a great deal of positive feedback from gamers out there who really want to play a finished version of this mod. Some say it's a unique blend of genres, others think it'll be another GTA clone in the bargin bin. Either way, thanks for your patience and thanks for continuing to visit this site even though updates are so sparse. I can't say when, but we will reach the finish line someday.
