Retro Dose #7 - Counter Strike

Today I'm gonna tell you a story of a very successful Half-Life mod which quickly became one of the most important Valve titles with an active career of more than fifteen years.Counter-Strike was released on the market 19 July 1999 in public-beta as a modification for Half-Life, a game that at that time was not only one of the most important things in gaming, but also on the Internet. Planet Half-Life, page dedicated to news from the world of Half-Life, in two weeks of the newly opened Counter-Strike section already recorded 10,000 views, an unprecedented record at the time.

Retro Dose #6 - Shadow of the Colossus

Shadow of the Colossus... (IMO) The best and most unique game on PS2, and one of the best games of all time.  If you never played this or heard of this game - you missed out... a lot.First of all, it's hard to talk about the game without spoiling anything, but I'll try to avoid it as much as I can.

Retro Dose #3 - Postal

One of the most brutal games ever made is the theme of our new Retro Dose, and the only thing that beat that silly, sadistic fun is its sequel - Postal 2 in 2003.In 1997 a group of enthusiasts gathered in Arizona under the name Running With Scissors has decided to make a game that is primarily supposed to suit their own taste. I believe that they themselves did not count they will make such a sick game that the whole gaming community, various psychologists and psychiatrists and numerous supporters of the ban violence in video games will talk about it
