It's disappointing that it's been 8 years in development and will still be released essentially incomplete, hopefully the Xen levels won't take them too much longer. Still should be good to play

can you do better?

Wow, chill out people. If you have no interest in the game, then please don't post in the thread, and go somewhere else. I for one, am excited about this game :p

The gaming community and the gaming press disagree with you. It was more than just ground-breaking at the time - it was genre defining. But don't let that stop you complaining.

OH well!! I guess I have to change my opinion now as the gaming community and press disagree with me.

A lot of us would have preferred a more timely release but think about this: the mod is being made by a team of volunteers. They're not being paid by Valve to make this mod and they're doing it out of love and admiration for Half-Life. And they don't have to follow a strict schedule like most game developers.

I'm glad that they finally set a date. I still remember how excited I was when they first announced the game (formerly known as Black Mesa: Source). I must admit that my excitement and interest for the game has dwindled over the past couple of years; however, the news of a mid-September release has rekindled my desire to play it. I actually held off from completing Half-Life just so I could play it with updated graphics.

I agree.
A lot of people are complaining but they'll still play it, just like the rest of us. People who aren't going to play it because it took too long or it is missing Xen. They're going to miss out.

But you WILL be vocal on the wait?

Of course. They shot themselves in the foot by creating so much hype when they still had nothing to show.

As a developer, I keep my mouth shut until I am ready to actually let someone use my app.

Only 30% of the votes it needs, surprising given the amount of hype that's been surrounding this mod. Hopefully Valve will step in and put it on Steam anyway.

That is actually incredibly good when you compare it to other games also being voted on. (see http://www.shrewdlog...ht.htm#[[4,1]] ) It's currently in 2nd place (almost first) even though it has been up there for less then half the time of the first place game.

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.


Thanks. Did not know that.

I hope there is a donate button after its released. I know its taken ages, but its being done on peoples non paid time. They have jobs and maybe kids so they might not get as much time as they would like to have in the evening to work on this game.

Nice, same here. Have a full day of work to go, but something to look forward to when I get home.
