Reef Entertainment to make new Videogames!: Reef Entertainment to make new Videogames!

So it’s a huge day for fans of the Terminator franchise after a long quite spell two bits of Terminator news hit at the same time and I’ve got to say I’m really quite stoked by the news.

And the Director is…

Terminator has always attracted big name directors for instance I distinctly remember a time when Ridley Scott was said to be in the mix for directing duties on Terminator 3.


Rightt now it looks like Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Thor: The Dark World) has come out on top at the end of the selection process and is in final negotiations to take the directors chair for 2015’s Terminator.

I’ll be posting some of my gaming vids from time to time.

Today I’m going to post the first vid from my Let’s Play CUBE.

CUBE is a Modification of Half-Life 2 Episode 2 set in an Alternate Universe that nevertheless crosses over into the Half-Life/Portal Universes we know and love. It is abundantly clear that a huge amount of effort has been taken to produce a game play experience that rivals the A-List titles is is a modification of- it is excellent, flat out excellent!

It is also one of THREE modifications based in this OTHER LIFE universe. The other two are OTHER LIFE which they’re just getting going on and HATCH 18 (Which they’ve released a Demo for already.)

These can be found by searching at

Hatch 18 Demo Only
Other-LifeEarly Development
CUBE ModPlay it NOW!

This series is truly going to be something special. I implore you not to play the Hatch 18 demo before finishing CUBE- because CUBE sets up the world and Hatch 18 continues it.

Happy Gaming!

Black Mesa is About to DROP!

Oh my goodness!

Black Mesa (video game)

Talk about exciting news ripping a hole through the Half-Life Universe just today the news has Broken that Black Mesa formerly known as Black Mesa Source is very close to release! Black Mesa all out, megasized, Source powered and designed, fan made, super high quality remake of VALVe Software’s Half-Life released way back in November of 1998.

A Little History

The folks behind Black Mesa have been working long and hard on this project. Work began on the project in 2004 and has continued non-stop since then- this is all the more impressive when you consider the huge undertaking that remaking an entire game is. Those behind Black Mesa are from around the world and are doing this on a voluntary basis- they did announce one release date back in 2009. However when that didn’t end up being the case they adopted the traditional “When it’s done” release date.

They’ve kept eager fans satiated by posting on their messageboards, and releasing media updates but those have been fewer and further between recently. Why was that? We now have our answer.

The Date is Soon

Today the webmaster at the Black Mesa website posted the following message in the forums:

 It was said that once the soundtrack is released, one could expect the launch of black mesa two weeks after. I can now say that a new website will be launched with the soundtrack in preparation for the mod. **** if we care about the current website. Just take a good look at it because it will be gone soon enough.

That alone speaks volumes and there a couple of other people who have been working on the project who have also made similar statements.

Did I mention that not only will this file be huge…but it will also be FREE!

I’ll be keeping you guys up to date, but it’s great to say to all Half-Life fans that the release of the ultimate user made project is on the doorstep of completion!

Here’s the Official Trailer:

That said…here’s the first part to my Let’s Play through the game of LIMBO!

I’ll Be Back!

Portal 2 Character

I had a bit of spare time lying around so I chose to make a video play through of one of my favorite games with a twist. Instead of commenting on what i was doing in the game I would comment on screenwriting and writing in general and in and around the Portal Universe.

I only have the first two parts up at the moment and I’ll put the first one in the post itself.

It’s possible I might have the whole thing all uploaded by tomorrow.

I hope you enjoy and find it informative.
