Have You Played… Quake 2 CrateDM?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Have you played the Quake II mod CrateDM? If so, please tell me all about it. It’s a simple but oh so wonderful idea, which is best explained in its readme file: “CrateDM pits opponents against each other in a room full of crates, and the players are crates.” That’s it. All-crates Quake 2 deathmatch. Before Old Man Murray even created their Crate Review System, CrateDM was at the cutting edge of crate culture.

Have You Played… Quake 2 Chaos Deathmatch?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Quake has seen plenty of mods adding oodles of wacky weapons but the one that most caught my eye was Chaos Deathmatch [official site] for Quake II. If you weren’t poisoned and being chased by smiley-faced homing proximity mines while juggling another player with an air blaster, you were missing out.

Revenants (Whoa-oh!): BrainBread 2 Out Free For Source

If you’ve been slaying zombies for a few years, you may well have come across the Half-Life mod BrainBread, an FPS splashing in a touch of action-RPG as you and your pals cut down zombie hordes. I think I remember it as being fun for a bit? Hazy mod memories. Point is: now BrainBread 2 [official site] is out for free. The sequel shambles in the Source engine, naturally, and brings several co-op and competitive modes.

Dark Souls III Modder Fills Entire World With Crabs

For years hardcore Souls bros have been faced with a problem. How do you make Dark Souls even more difficult, unsettling and frightening than normal? Some have resorted to ‘one bro’ runs, playing through the games in their pants, others to killing all the bosses as fast as humanly possible. But for one YouTuber, the answer was much simpler. Just add crabs. Lots of crabs.

Back To The Wasteland: Fallout 1.5 – Resurrection

Fallout. Fallout never changes. No, wait, that’s not quite right. Fallout. Fallout has changed too much.

Resurrection [official site] is a Fallout 2 mod for all those who think that even the second game was a step too far from the original. Dispensing with many of the pop culture references with which the sequel was “overfilled”, this brand new story, set in New Mexico in a time period between the two original games, returns to “the great atmosphere of decadence and hopelessness enjoyed by so many in the first Fallout game”. All you need to play is a full version of Fallout 2. Downloads are here.

Brutal Doom Dual-Wielding New Doom’s Guns

Doom on you.

The new Doom certainly seems to have a touch of Brutal Doom [official site] in it, what with all the ripping and tearing and whatnot, so it’s only fair that in return Brutal Doom should get a bit of D44m [thousands of letters from Doom enthusiasts have flooded into the RPS treehouse demanding we call the new game that -ed.]. Out now and recently updated is a Brutal Doom add-on boshing D44m’s weapons into the ultraviolent mod for ye olde Doom. Yes, of course you can dual-wield super shotguns. And heck yes you can transform into demons. Have a look at this in action:

Gawp At GTA 5’s Redux Overhaul Mod

Although a wee bit late to the party, the PC iteration of Grand Theft Auto V [official site] has hardly broke stride since its release last year. Besides loads of official updates and DLC, intuitive modders have crafted a whole range of weird and wacky and wonderful mods to enhance our Los Santos experiences – to the point where it’s become hard to keep track of the best ones (how’s that for a shameless plug?). One mod in particular that’s shaping up rather nicely is Josh Romito’s work-in-progress visual overhaul number, Redux, which has just launched its first, lovely-looking trailer.
