Yup. The Senior Project Manager went on to live on an desert island, the Lead Mapper is on the run from the long arm of the law, the Level Co-Designer works now for the EC, while the Modeller&Concpet [sic!] artist is finishing his exams.

Now, if you would care to ask a proper question, I am sure that a less cranky soul would care to give you a proper answer.

I still wonder why I frequent this place. Can't be dead as long people visit it.

It's not dead. It's dreaming. Dreaming a nightmare that remains untold.

Just watch. It will come in the next Orange Box and be sold as retail.
After all, a couple of Valve guys helped test the last parts of Metastasis. Anything's possible.

I'd guess from the lack of blog updates that Valve are working Adam hard, not to mention he's had to move countries which can't be easy. Patience young dreamer!

Well, I did notice Adam's name in Left 4 Dead's credits. And this http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/magazinemonitor/2008/11/your_letters_544.shtml. Seems as he's pretty happy about this Valve-thingey. A shame! ;-)

Well I guess now we all know how intense it can be to work at Valve- he hasn't even had time to update his blog. At least they're dedicated to quality instead of release dates, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Did we just become Dreamers? Or are we Dreaming Acolytes (or some variant of same)?

Minerva has a tenancy to drop off the radar for long periods anyway but she always eventually returns. We need but wait and stay alert for signs of activity.

Yes, we need to wait and stay alert while we wait for activity. ... the smoke grenades in her bedroom might help though. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

While we wait, I could suggest mods like Eye of the Storm Episode One. It's episodic. Adam would be pleased. You could also try "Rebellion", it's not that good, but I most certainly enjoyed it. Anyone else played some good mods?

I've tried quite a few single player mods. So far none have come close to MINERVA's standard, but Riot Act is definitely my second. Awakening and Rock 24 were okay as well. That Ravenholm wasn't too bad either. Don't get me started on City 7 though. The battle sequences generally consist of mobs of uninspired assorted combine soldiers running out of spawn areas seemingly interminably...

City 7? It had such potential but failed misserably. Some parts were okay though, but I guess the maker learned quite a few things from it, so a complete waste it wasn't.

I still got a bunch of mods waiting to be played, but there hasn't been any exciting releases lately.
