Black Mesa (formerly Black Mesa: Source) is a Half-Life 2 total conversion remaking of Valve Software’s award-winning PC game, Half-Life.
Utilizing the Source engine, Black Mesa will reintroduce the player as Doctor Gordon Freeman, along with the original cast of memorable characters and environments seen in Half-Life. Black Mesa was built and founded on the basis that Half-Life: Source didn’t fully live up to the potential of a Source engine port of Half-Life. As such, Black Mesa was founded to fully reconstruct the Half-Life universe utilizing Source to its fullest potential in terms of art detail, level sizes and code features. It should be noted that the project is being built from the ground up and is not a simple port of Half Life maps and models into the Source Engine. The idea is to remake the storyline used in Half Life into a new polished Source Engine version with new models, maps, soundtrack, voice acting and textures.
Ich bin ja persönlich nicht so der Gamer und kenne GTA auch eher aus den pixeligeren Zeiten. Ich glaube GTA II besaß ich sogar noch. Dennoch gefällt mir die Idee von jrmoorf00t4 und taltigolt extrem gut. Die haben nämlich ne Mod für Grand Theft Auto IV gebaut in dem Du als R2-D2 mal richtig schön Amok laufen darfst. Passt gar nicht zu dem netten kleinen Droiden.
Elevator:Source ist ein HalfLife-Mod, in dem man in einen Aufzug steigt und verschiedene Stockwerke besucht. Klingt superspannend und was ich bislang davon gesehen habe, ist… speziell. Von Rock Paper Shotgun: „right now I’m in the lift with a man called Lizard Wizard, someone called Barney whose head is on fire, and a skellington called Jaykin. Watching through the elevator doors as a factory line of dancing pixel robots go past, over a pit of fire. Before the doors close and we’re off somewhere else. Barney and Jay keep giving each other furtive glances. And now we’ve stopped at the seaside, where Derek in his yellow rubber ring and blue suit has just got on board.“
Hier der Trailer und hier noch ein 44minütiges Video von ein paar Jungs, die den Mod im Multiplayer-Modus spielen und dabei sehr, sehr viel Spaß haben:
Elevator: Source is a single or co-op elevator experience that is different each time you play. What floor will you stop on next? What will happen? Who knows! We don’t even know! And we made the game. It’s THAT EXCITING!
Elevator: Source brings you…
- Up to 28 randomized floors to stop on (with expansion packs possible in the future!)
- A thrilling co-op experience
- Realistic elevator physics
- Cunning, state of the art AI that REALLY GOES INTO THE ELEVATOR AND WAITS!
- Real moral choices! What floor do you get off at? Do you ever get off? Only you are able to craft your elevator story.
- No videogame to date can bring you the quality of elevators or as realistic a simulation as Elevator: Source can!

The Shocking True Tale Of The Mad Genius Who Invented Sea-Monkeys | The Awl: As anyone sold by the Sea-Monkey ads could tell you, it was hard to say exactly where von Braunhut was walking on the terrain between truth, embellishment and con. That was his gift. He convinced us to look at the jazz hands and lose sight of the footwork. Von Braunhut’s inventions were not quite what they seemed to be. Neither was he.
Robots of Brixton on Vimeo: „The film follows the trials and tribulations of young robots surviving at the sharp end of inner city life, living the predictable existence of a populous hemmed in by poverty, disillusionment and mass unemployment. When the Police invade the one space which the robots can call their own, the fierce and strained relationship between the two sides explodes into an outbreak of violence echoing that of 1981.“
In violent video games, teens face (and fight) their demons: „Sixteen-year-old Evan Jones played his first violent videogames when he was 3. He slew demons in Diablo II, blasted Lovecraftian horrors in Quake and shot terrorists in Counter-Strike. If you buy conventional wisdom, by now Jones should be a tightly wound coil of aggression, ready to attack someone at the slightest provocation. Instead, he’s a pretty laid-back kid.“
Time-lapse Spider in space: „Esmeralda the spider isn't wasting away from homesickness in space, in fact she's doubled in size. She's one of two golden silk orb-weaver spiders (Nephila clavipes) that was recently sent to the International Space Station (ISS) on NASA's last shuttle mission to space, as part of a national education project in the US. One of the experiments, designed by Stefanie Countryman and her team at BioServe Space Technologies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, involves comparing spider behaviour in space and on Earth. Students in elementary and middle schools across the country are watching videos like this one of the spiders spinning webs in near-weighlessness and looking for differences from the same set-up in their classrooms.“

YouTube – Solarnauts (Part 1 of 3): „An unsold pilot for a proposed 1967 sci-fi actioner out of the UK. Eye-popping costumes and sets belie an overall cheesy but charming tone. Cast of familiar but un-nameable Brit character actors, only Bond-Girl Martine Beswick stands out. Beware of LOGIK! You have been warned…“
