While CUBE Experimental is certainly an excellent mod, Fallout Wanderer's Edition surpasses it in all manners. FWE not only rebalances every weapon in the game but also adds more advanced AI, hunger/thirst/sleep needs, not to mention increasing the difficulty ten-fold.

From the limited amount of info available and the screenshots, it would seem that the Fallout 3 mod "Cube Experimental" is based on the movie "The Cube".  Excellent film in the way it does NOT present the story and leaves you guessing throughout the entire film.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cube_%28film%29

The remake was decent, but attempted to remove too much of the mystery... and failed in the process.

Hexen: Edge of Chaos.

It's basically Hexen on Doom3 engine. Try it. :)

About ten years ago I knew a kid who was given an ancient PC that couldn't play many games. I leant him my TIE Fighter cd, as by then it was pretty old, and haven't seen it since. Every couple years I think about it and get a little angry.

This was a nice article, as I don't really follow the PC gaming scene anymore, but do buy games every so often. Looking forward to trying out a a few of these now. That Fallout one sounds like it might be worth buying Fallout for.

Ok. New B here . Downloaded the Dear Ester zip file. NOW WHAT? There is no instruction in the read me files, no auto-run .  Do I move this file to the HL2 file  What am I missing . Never modded a game file before . All may laugh now. HELP.

Wait until December 19 for the reboot of Dear Esther.  Don't play it now.  It is going to be 10X better when the reboot is released.  Be patient. (I posted the link to the ModDB page for the mod in my other comment)

While I agree that the new Dear Esther is going to be amazing I would still recommend everyone play the original in order to get a feel of what the game/mod is. Even with the dated graphics on the original it's still an amazing experience and will only wet your appetite even more for the new one. Seriously go play the first one, it's still an amazing game.

Wait until December 19 when this comes out:

This guy is doing a complete graphical and technical overhaul on Dear Esther, and it looks more like the CryEngine than the Source Engine.  It is so freakin' amazing.  Here's a video:

I've used that star wars mod, it's a lot of fun.

Sort of feels like you're playing a way-better version of Empire at War. Heheheh.

Nice to see an article about PCs in a PC magazine.

How cool would it be if someone could mod Diablo II that it was playable in higher resolutions? Replace the sprites?

I can dream, can't I?

Diablo 2 in high resolution. I am playing it as we speak. It's pretty awesome.

What !? No Project Reality ? This is the best mod of Battlefield 2! It won the mod of the year award 2 times! It's so popular, they're making a standalone game for it and adapting it to other games!

Yeah when I looked at this article I said.. "Project reality has to be in here", but I guess not

great ones... my all time fave mod though, is Fleet Operations, a total rebuild of Star Trek: Armada II... it adds great depth and tactics to the olf unit-fest strategy game  without demanding too much in graphics or sound.

When and where did you get "Dear Esther" mod ? It is no longer available from original website " File is deleted " thats what it says. Are you just copy/paste just to make article fast way ?

It really is a good mod, and if you like it I reccomend following the progress of the new updated version that is soon to be released; it really is amazing.
