Episode 8!

A day later than I intended but now nothing is in the way of working on episode 9 before the school year starts! Like I mentioned earlier 1 third of the process is already done so that will speed things along. In the meantime enjoy!

Episode 8 is almost finished

So just have a bit more patience for that. I've already got the footage recorded so all thats left is to record the dialogue. Which I don't have a lot of time to do during the week. Other things have been getting in the way as well, I'm starting up a college course in the fall so my attention will be geared towards that for a while. But fear not, I've already run a rough draft of Episode 9 which will mean getting that video done sooner.

I also figured I should address a few things people are messaging me about.
About the SMOD Tactical Lets Play. In case you didn't get the message I sent out after Valve updated HL2 to run off of the orange box engine with achievements, any mods based on the old engine have crapped out. As a result that's going to be on hold until an actual fix is made, the quality just drops too low even for me to show it. That fix doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon however as the team who made the mod is pretty much dead in the water now. If it does happen though, I will be continuing forward with that.

In the meantime KOTOR and Perfect Dark will have to fill in the gaps. KOTOR is taking a bit longer mainly due to tech issues that aren't complete game breakers but still ruin continuity. You'll see what I mean in the next part. Perfect Dark on the other hand seems to be going much better, I've reworked the controls a bit so its closer to its N64 roots. So aiming is now much easier.

Hope that explains the situation a bit better.

Holy Shit Zombies!

This has got to be the coolest mod I have seen in a while, and they're still improvements to be made. The headtracking tech the guy added in there probably makes it a lot more immersive than it would otherwise. Naturally it probably makes it a lot scarier too, awesome!

Unfortunately I can't play ARMA 2 so watching youtube is the closest thing I can get. If you can play the game with a decent frame rate you might want to check this out.

Episode 7 is up

Kinda felt this summer was getting a bit boring, so to kick start August I did this a bit sooner than I originally intended. And yes, that is who you think it is providing a cameo.

I came up with the idea a while back but never really took it seriously until the end of episode 6. Luckily Krimsin liked the idea enough to do it. I haven't got any more surprises for the point man's mind aside from this, the character A. Shepherd will return later of course along with Krimsin to reprise his role but thats about it. So far.

Until then. Enjoy!
