CrikeyMate @ PLH Experimental Demo

Hey, Crikey here. Working on a full video review of this, playing it while talking to Greeny. Overall had a fun time with it, probably because I used cheats but I did and will give it fair judgement and play through for my video review. As for right now, I believe that the PLH Tech Demo was a great experience and personally knowing the Cloud 6 Staff, I can say that some of the members worked their a$%^s off to get us, the players entertainment for no cost at all and for them to make no profit.
As for the gameplay experience, besides minor visual glitches that weren't fixed, that only persists for 2 minutes of gameplay, (thanks crappy source engine) but the rest is on point with presentation so here's my TL:DR review of PLH

Gameplay: 10/10 Gives all off the perks of portal plus new puzzle and gameplay mechanics, with amazing movement and not movement bugs nor glitches.

Visuals: 4/10
This was a rough one to decide, Although the visuals top most of HL2's and Portal 1 and 2's, some sections weren't the best looking and I as a programmer and mapper myself recognized some of the faults in the visuals. But knowing the devs well, I can cut them some slack as this was a fallen apart project for a WHILE.

Creativity: 8/10
Literally no lack of creativity on this mod. Next Section.

Mod Sentence: Absynthe is broken, but good mod.

Lighting is way too strong, adjust that light!, also needs some other sources of light or some more detail like dust or some different textures, also textures are unaligned.

CrikeyMate @ Race-X Is Back!

I see this mod getting a lot of hate, which I think it to be unjustified.
All I see people comment "map bad trailer long" but here is my honest opinion but also a way to FIX this mod and just media making in general.

1. Make the trailer music match with the footage being rolled.
(In this example, we'll use this trailer, you add very fast pace music to a slow pace vanilla HL2, which is very dull. Maybe play some slow music, don't use default transitions, and just think outside the box with things like, Color Correction, Light Entites, Light Spots, Sprites, and just what you have at your disposal in general.)

2. Try to get to the point in a trailer, (basically, showcase the things you want to show QUICKLY.) Overtime, these new generations and just people on media in general have lesser attention spans due to things being very short on the internet, this is why podcasts, live streams, etc, have lesser viewers than things like YouTube content, Stream Highlights, etc.
Try to shorten it down into basics as much as possible.

3. Don't overthink things, remember what made HL2 good.
HL2 is a very successful game for these reasons,
1. Innovative Physics and Game Mechanics, for its time.
2. High Res models and textures, again, for its time.
3. And a very well shown (not told) story.
If you can implement these aspects into your mod (no need for overcomplex "innovative combat systems".) Then you have a successful that will garner a following.

Good luck on Race-X, and please consider these tips.

Yes indeed, the mod has gone "Down The *******," if you will. I'm just focusing on private projects right now outside of Cloud 6 and Rogue Studios. Might disclose more later

CrikeyMate @ Portal: Last Hope

It's not a skin; it is an original model, so as greenyred said, it is ours. No downloads anytime soon, if you want to use it in your mod when the game comes out; I don't think you can; might have to DM the PLH Staff.

Very basic concept; overused cliche in HL Mods; and reused things; idk about this mod but we'll see I guess.

But aren't you IN the citadel at that point? It's unoptimized to use a bunch of brushwork and slap it in a huge skybox

I love the use of the lighting here. Gives it a really surreal kind of effect.
(The dead corpse in the corner is a bit gross, though.)
