Mod Spot: Kotor 2 Fix

14 Oct

Knights of the Old Republic 2, we feel, is a fantastic game. It’s also undoubtedly a wounded game: a lonely game that knows it’s incomplete as it is but just can’t bear to admit it to itself. It’s okay, KOTOR2. We’re here for you. Shhhh. We’re here.

These are the brave words by the developers trying to fix the game for us all.

Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) was an RPG created by Bioware that takes place about 4000 years before the Star Wars movies. The game broke countless boundaries and won numerous awards, needless to say a sequel was in the works and expectations were very high.

For KOTOR 2, the developers behind the Never Winter Nights series were given the reigns, but they had to rush in order to meet the holiday deadline and needless to say the game was incomplete and felt unpolished. Fortunately they had made a nearly complete game and the modders took it upon themselves to add this missing content.

Mod Spot: Black Mesa Source

20 Feb

The year was 1998, and it was the greatest year in video gaming The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released and it caused a sensation amongst gamers clamouring to play the Hyrulean hero of time. In the same year a game that many publishers had claimed was too ambitious was released on the PC to critical acclaim winning numerous game of the year awards. This game was Half Life and introduced players to their geeky hero and beloved crowbar.

The game was released again using its sequels Source Engine but the same textures and models. Which unfortunately unlike its sequel have not aged well, so a group of modders got together and decided to do something about it and have put together the Black Mesa Source Mod, which is a total conversion of the original game bringing it up to date with the visual standard of Half Life 2.

A little over 10 years have passed and finally the game will get the upgrade it truly deserves and enthral and excite a the generation of gamers who only know Half Life 2. Visit the site and show your support and thank the developers and spread the word about this awesome mod.
