There was a time in my life when I was in college and I was only armed with an Xbox 360 and a weak gaming laptop that could run games like Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, Left 4 Dead and Amnesia: The Dark Descent on low quality settings.

About five or six years ago, Arkane Studios was creating a Half-Life 2 Episode entitled, "Return to Ravenholm." The project was cancelled but still lives on through screenshots leaked today.
Holy snaps! That's the best way to describe Jurassic Life, the upcoming mod for Half-Life 2 that recreates the Jurassic Park experience in Valve's old but trusty Source Engine. The new teaser trailer – while still an obvious work in progress – is easily one of the most polished looking total conversions I've ever witnessed and it could be one of the breakout hits of 2013.
Later this week, Half-Life's fan remake Black Mesa will be released after eight years of development. The team behind the remake has sent out screenshots to give everyone a taste of what they should expect from this reincarnation.
