It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Steam store page:
Official trailer:


Neotokyo° is a Half-Life 2 modification released in 2009 and was among the first patch of games to be Greenlit by Valve in 2012. Heavily influenced by Ghost in the Shell, it's a tactical multiplayer FPS in the vein of Counter-Strike, enhanced with with three separate classes that add depth to gameplay with abilities such as invisibility, rapid speed "bunnyhopping", multiple vision modes and... leaning!

Since the 2009 release, the game always had only under hundred players at most and for the last few years only a few dozen dedicated die hard players coming together on every Neotokyo° Friday (and sometimes on Tacticool Tuesdays)... That is not the case anymore!

Forward time 2 years afters being Greenlit by Valve and it finally was released on Steam on 4th of July!

After initial troubles of there being too few servers, the game currently boasts several hundred players at any given time with 100+ servers. Don't know how long that will last, eh heh heh, but it's better than ever!

Oh and it's completely free, and despite being called a mod is now totally standalone.

Since it was released 5 years ago, it is a bit aged graphically but still boasts detail rich maps and rather deep tactical gameplay. For me at least, it's the leader among tactical shooters.


To help you ease into the game faster, here are some comprehensive guides which I recommend:

Overview of classes & weapons:
Guide to bunnyhopping:
Overall ways to abuse Source engine to get around faster:
Recon class gameplay demo:

Bonus tip: When playing assault class and having a pistol in hand press X on keyboard to change firing mode to automatic: that little Tachi pistol is now a mini SMG! Do that at the start of round so you can immediately switch to pistol when your main gun runs out of ammo in middle of a fire fight. Certainly faster than reloading the gun.


If you have suicidal tendencies, you can add me on Steam under the alias of "Whizzard" and attempt to tackle some veterans. I'm really really sorry if your opposing team has Snilah. Really.

If you wish to join the biggest and most veteran ( ) Steam community of die hard Neotokyo players who kept Nt alive for all these years, called Active Neotokyo Players (EWISotT), then you can do so here:

See you in Neotokyo°!

Oh, I'm sure anything can go horribly wrong but still, that's the spirit!

I currently have a tight job schedule with 12 hour shifts so you might not see me playing much but I will play whenever I do have time.
