    Could someone tell me the name of that old half-life spin-off game - it was orginally planned to be an expansion but ended up being a stand-alone expansion? It has a cow-boy/space theme and there are laser pistols.

    I can't remember the name of it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I thought he was asking for a Half Life mod, in which case you forgot at least 10-20.

    I assumed he meant part of the series, since he said spinoff and not mod.

    Decay? I don't remember that...Opposing Force and Blue Shift, yes (both of which were in Half-Life bundle packs with the retail version of Counter Strike), but not Decay.

    I think Decay was an extra episode that was included in the PS2 version of Half Life.

    Pretty sure the OP is thinking of Gunman Chronicles. It was originally going to be a mod but it ended up as a full retail game. I have a copy of it somewhere I think.

    Please don't automatically post a disdainful post. Despite the implication of your reply - I did read the Wikipedia article - thinking it would mention the spin-off somewhere - since it started as a half-life mod, but it did not. You probably knew this already but If I had known your post would come with a disdainful comment, I wouldn't have wanted your help.

    Sorry. So many people post here expecting other people to do all the work for them. When you said Spinoff, I assumed you meant something in Half life canon, and if it would be anywhere, it would be there.

    My apologies. As I said I did research it a bit before posting, both in Wikipedia and elsewhere. Nevermind.
