(really short news from PC Gamer)

Their was no bad blood within Volition company that Steve Jaros the Creative Director of Volition quit and joined Valve in fact Steve Jaros a ten year vet from Volition the writer for Saints Row 1, 2 and The Third also lead development on Saints Row IV and he had these tweets and quote about Volition before moving on...

Tweets:
“The past 10 years at Volition have been life changing,”
“I've gotten to work with amazing people and made friends that will last a life time.”


Quote:
"I'm super proud of the work we did on Saints Row, and am excited for what Volition does in the future, but it's time for me to move on,"

Now with that chapter has been put to rest the next chapter is on the horizon with Valve in a "undisclosed project"...Don't say it and you know what I mean.

(short and quick news)

I mention a while ago that the Valve teamed up with Nexon to created a Free to Play Counter-Strike game called Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies (CSN:Z)...yes Counter-Strike with zombies anyway Nexon just announced their release date for this September 23 and they just added more stuff to the game and theirs actually a lot of stuff and may do a review on it later but I'm in the works on setting up a "What to become a Contributor" for OBFC just because I need more help.

Next up Garry's Mod has just sold over 6 million copies as of recently and to put that in perspective back in 2011 Gmod just got up to 1 million even though it's already at 22 million sold over all but still it jumped up recently my guess is the gaming celebrities like Markiplier, pewdiepie and so on but still pretty cool.

Lastly a video I got from The Mystery Zone team that did "Wolfenstein Fortress 2 [SFM] and Bread Update In A Nutshell [SFM]" to name a few has created a new SFM based on another video game called "Snatcher" and I haven't actually played Snatcher before but the SFM video is interesting to check out.

:bulletred:The Masked Prisoner mini review:bulletred:

A new mini review that just came out as of last week here is the review...

:bulletblue:Story:bulletblue:
(Straight from Moddb page)

"The Masked Prisoner" explores the untold stories of several Half Life characters - taking place in a prison on the outskirts of City 17.

:bulletblue:Gameplay:bulletblue:
Theirs nothing much to say since it's Half-Life gameplay done well and it's more action than puzzles but their was a "Stealth" element and I mean you were wearing a Combine suit to get into the prison control area and that's pretty much it.

:bulletblue:Graphics/sound:bulletblue:
Same with gameplay all assets were from Half-life 2, Ep 1 and 2 was used but the creator of the mod mention the graphics on the moddb page...

NOTE: The art fidelity for this mod is only rough, 1st-pass quality. I simply do not have the time to polish the art and bring it to Valve standards.

That kind of stuff gets you worried that the mod was going to be crap and yes it's not that great but the level design itself is awesome even for 1.0. But again graphics are hm not great since some parts were just blocks with rock texture so I hope in the future the creator will fix the graphics. Go now to audio and I have already mention that they used all the assets from HL2, EP1 and EP2 but their was some voice acting and it was very little and when I mean little I mean two voice actors and about around 7 lines of dialog per-person but the quality was pretty good right up their with Black Mesa just on a smaller scale. So the first character eh his voice was really mono and somewhat motionless but it was enough to be passable. Then the second character and I mean Alyx yes that Alyx from the Half-Life franchise but not voiced by the actual actress of Alyx but the actress who did it in this mod it a pretty good job as Alyx almost sounded like the original Alyx just a little younger.

:bulletblue:Overall:bulletblue:
I really liked this mod overall for being a Half-Life universe mod and from it's graphical problem their was only one major problem I had with the whole mod. It took me less than 30 minuets to complete the mod and I wanted more from it and it was addicting. Also their is one part of dialog at the end of the mod which is a minor spoiler so I won't say it you just have to play it to get to it.

:bulletgreen:Cost:bulletgreen:
Half-Life 2 Episode 2 required $7.99 USD- store.steampowered.com/app/420…

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...
