I'll try to stop caring until it's actually released. I appreciate the enormity of their endeavour, but I can't help but be a bit pessimistic after all this time.

This has been too long since it's inception... I know i's just a community run mod so it's a miracle that they've managed to keep it going and keep it updated over the years.. but I've lost interest. Games have changed. :p

Is this a sign of the apocalypse? Are the four horsemen coming?

Those guys at Valve are amazing. We can just wait years for their releases and they could care less. You know when they put out a game release its going to be a HUGE because people know the quality of their work. I've thought about what a typical day would be like for their design team, or just exactly what they do over at Valve. Come in for a couple hours, make some coffee, chat with the boys, scratch out a few things on paper and done for the day.

You won't be wondering how why it took so long once you play it, the quality is amazing, personally I wouldn't mind an episodic system for Black Mesa Source, so long as they stick to a strict release time table for new content, just so I can get my hands on this mod faster.

Too bad it will be an incomplete version of the game. Only 8 more years until they finish it?

Makes you glad you didn't put down a deposit or put any of YOUR hard work into it.

I commend them...just a group of folks getting together to recreate HL. Nothing to sneeze at...and regarding the enormous wait....can you do better?

Pretty awesome this is going to be released, i remember reading about this in 2004 and thinking "i wonder how long that will take".

I have put off Playing Half Life again ever since, so will be great to finally play this updated version :) very impressed the BBC has taken notice of the mod too!

This game isn't being made by Valve. It's a fan made project pursued by a handful of developers.

Also, you probably meant to say "they couldn't care less".

That said, I do agree with your post.
