Enjoy your podcasts. You got good chemistry there. It feels like I'm sitting there with you guys (I know you use Skype, you know what I mean) just listening.

Awesome podcast, very enjoyable. Is it just me or does William sound like Burnie Burns?

We'll expand more (Modular combat). Right now the mod team consists of just... two people. Hopefully we'll expand the team to get some custom content going, and yes, the maps are borrowed. The standard HL2:DM maps as well as a few custom ones.

Hey! I was turned onto this podcast by one of my players. I wasn't aware something like this existed. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Modular Combat. Thanks for taking a look at our mod!
