Finally a new Portal 2 mod but this one went under our radar and it got through Steam Greenlight so it's going to be on Steam and since it's still a mod you need Portal 2 to run it.

(Info from Steam Page)

:bulletblue:What is Thinking with Time Machine?:bulletblue:

Deep within the facilities at Aperture Science lies a secret research laboratory that was locked and closed off... until it was found by robots.

Thinking with Time Machine is a Portal 2 mod in which you will find and use a Time Machine to create a twin of yourself from the past to help you solve the puzzles. The past self accurately repeats all of the player's actions, creating a unique twist on familiar Portal game mechanics.
-----------

Wow Thinking with Portals was hard enough but adding time changing as well this is going to be interesting and it's releasing tomorrow and in other time zones it could be right now.

:bulletred:Contagion mini review:bulletred:

:bulletblue:Story:bulletblue:
Another survival zombie game...that's the story.

:bulletblue:Gameplay:bulletblue:
I'm actually surprised the controls in the game are a little confusing at first but once you get it you are on a roll with the game. Alright let’s get the first key gameplay element that you will need is the cellphone...yeah I'm not joking the cellphone is a key part to the game in the three game modes I'll be explaining. First is "Escape" is try to escape and survive in the map you are in and your cellphone is your guide so when someone unlocks something the cellphone will go off and give you a new message on what next you need to do. Second game mode is "Extraction" it's just get the civilians out of area, protect them from the zombies and your cellphone will be a GPS so you can check where you are and how close you are to the extraction point. Last game mode is the fun one it's called "Hunted" it's basically arena mode which you die once you’re done in this round but you turn into a zombie and take them down. Then the phone part in the mode is once it goes off you can check your phone and call the phone and it will go off and all you need to do is just listen close enough to take them out. Also there is one other kicker to this mode you’re not just killing each other you have to kill the zombies as well to get random gear if you run out of ammo so basically you have to fight yourselves and the zombies so keep your eyes and ears when you’re playing this mode.

:bulletblue:Graphics/sound:bulletblue:
I'm really impressed that most of the textures are simple yet very detailed and I mean Left 4 Dead 2 detail including the models but I did found some too simple polls tolled that could have been smoothed out hopefully that will get fixed. There is another detail in the lighting which was amazing that when you look into the light lens flare and splotch effects and it looks amazing which Left 4 Dead 2 doesn't have that I don't remember. Ok now there is not much in the sound that the sound effects when you are alone and you fire a weapon it's loud and when I mean loud I mean I can hear that from a mile long loud. But I did catch a minor problem that when you are walking normally I can hear the running sound so that could just be an error but its minor.

:bulletblue:Overall Early Access:bulletblue:
Even though this is an early access game I do recommended playing this but when there is a sale for it only because right now it's in early access. I hope this game will get more players it's addicting and with its minor problem with sound but there is one major problem that it's in early access and content right now is very limited and this game only has three maps right now and I hope there will be more in the future. So I do approve this game but if you want to buy the early access version wait until it's on sale you will thank me.

:bulletblue:Overall Postmortem:bulletblue:
Pretty much all that I mention before is still present but more content was added through the early access which I didn't played after early access was released but when it originally came out on early access there was only three maps per game mode. Now they’re eight maps two each for Extraction and Escape then the other four is for hunted. Including new weapons, improved textures, lighting improvements and major clean up on frame rate issues including breakable glass code. Next minor issue I mention improved textures yes it's improved but when you zoom in some of the textures on your hands get somewhat pixilated and I'm hoping it was just my video card or monitor and not the game. Lastly achievements were added at 1.0 release and for you and single player mod similar to Left 4 Dead games meaning very little story was added and this time you are on your own no NPC support so do a lan party or just go online is best. Now let’s get to the bad parts mainly no SDK support yet which is coming and this game needs for fan support also the major problem is cost as it stands right now $19.99 USD is way too much even though there is eight maps with single player the cost is just too high and I would just wait until it's on sale that's all I have to say about that. There you go that is my postmortem of a mod that went indie and hope in its future will do better when the SDK comes out, price drop or sale and keep patching up the game.

:bulletgreen:Cost:bulletgreen:
$14.99 USD Early access $19.99 USD official release

:bulletgreen:Score:bulletgreen:
4.5/5 (Early access) 4.5/5 (Normal)

Finally something from the End of the Line SFM team and the footage as of now is at 14 minutes and the final video will maybe hit 17 minutes since 8 minutes was guess based off the script. Also in the post that this could lock in this video in as a Fan TF2 update that they are making a map and weapons that we will see in the short but maybe able to play in the game as well but it's way too early since those are in it's early stages.
-----------

Sweet next is the mod that went indie and I personally liked it even though it was in early access since I think October and now Contagion has officially released but when I review it the price was $14.99 but now on official release it's at 19.99 if you already paid it on early access don't worry all it will do is update the early access version to 1.0 free of charge. Plus I didn't get notice of this but they also made a cinematic SFM Trailer for it's release two days ago before today...I'll link up my mini review of Contagion to get anyone filled in if they are interest in the mod that went indie and I may update the mini review with a postmortem if any changes had happen.

Only going to stick around until I'm not needed. Mod reviews will be back as soon as I can. Although you don't need to really wait for me or Devin to post reviews. People can post their own to the journal unless dA changed things a while back.
Also the way he and I do it are just guidelines to simplify the process.

Huge thank you for adding 'Good Luck Orange Team' to your gallery. I must say it's absolutely fantastic to see a group deeply interested in the valve games. It may shock Gabe Newell to find that I'm more into their single player games. :P How I will miss them...

Hi

I submitted this fav.me/d6m44mt to your group, but it expired. Should I try again? or maybe there is something wrong with it?
