  1. What a terrible trailer. Why did they do it all in first person at the start? Almost vomed allover my screen from motion sickness.
  2. I probably could of done that but I couldn't remember how to do it nor could I really be bothered I just found it strange that there are all these options for everything including how big the kitchen sink is but nothing to disable the god awful footsteps. It's almost as if it were done in purpose
  3. Never played Reach, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo 5, Halo 76 or any of that. Only Halo Combat Evolved when it came on PC all those years ago before Microsoft decided to be cocks. Bought the Collection, played Reach a bit - it's ok. Not really getting the hype that surrounded it but I'm only two missions in. Feel like I've watched more cutscenes than actually played the game so far.
  4. I'm currently replaying HL2 and this mod looked really cool so downloaded and gave it a go. Within 30 minutes I uninstalled it as the footstep sounds drove me crazy. A great mod ruined by one thing. Playing with this instead: https://store.steampowered.com/app/290930/HalfLife_2_Update/
  5. I feel others have said what I have to say but I want to chime in anyway Start small, be realistic, don't go in expecting the world. When I was 17/18 I'd always dream big and go into making a map with the intention of it being the greatest thing created since the statue of David's ballsack or something. The further in I got with my projects the more I realised I sucked and got super frustrated at what I was making because I was just biting off more than I could chew. My vision outmatched my abilities and I refused to accept that. So if I could go back and give my aspiring idiot ass some tips, downsize and get rid of that ego and just release it. Small maps or whatever, and level up as you go. A good example of my younger thinking was Half-life Nightwatch was all the rage back then in the HL1 modding community, It was the Duke Nukem Forever of mods and everytime they released screenshots I got really disheartened with my own work and just binned it and started over. I was always comparing myself to people with far more experience and ability at the time. What I should of done is ignored all that and focus on my own creations and work on my skills rather than looking at what the best at the time were doing. I even remember applying to Nightwatch at one point as an LD, I sent in shit tonnes of my work hoping they'd take me on but they ultimately rejected me citing I wasn't quite up to the standards they required. That really stung as I thought I had the abilities to match their amazing work, but alas no. That was the spark that ignited me to really drive myself and improve my skills as an LD. So yeah, moral of story, finish what you start. Don't be afraid of negative feedback. Don't get distracted by what others are producing. Don't bite off more than you can chew and be realistic with yourself.

    Star Wars

    Jon Favreau, aka Mr. Iron Man 1 & 2.
  7. There better be a hurg somewhere in this.
  8. Is anyone at the core still at Valve? Are Peris and Insta still there?
  9. Me before trailer : Haha fuck off I'm not paying £1000 to play Half-Life Me after Trailer :
  10. The Mandalorian, best Star War's I've seen since the originals. And the new Rick and Morty season 4. And South Park. South Park never fails to amuse me.
  11. £55 ($70) on steam! Bit expensive.
  12. If this turns out to be Jesus in VR and blows all our dicks off I will buy a Playstation.
  13. Perhaps that's a better way of putting. I certainly find myself going back to older games that I know or have finished and just replay them knowing I'm going to have fun. A lot of new games do require a time investment I can't afford anymore.
  14. I hope you aren't big into games, because you are gonna lose all interest in playing them when you make them for a job.
