Title: Black Mesa


Jeffk38uk - December 1, 2008 07:02 AM (GMT)
Did I mention epic? Cause that's pretty much what you're going to see in the first official trailer for this ambitious mod to recreate the classic Half Life back to 2009. Yup, 2009. If they can keep to it that is. Heh, and they teased us earlier with their fancy screenshots, guess they weren't just sitting on their hands.

SO MUCH WIN!

I think I'd vomit if I tried to think of what Gonarch and Nihilanth are going to look like.

If we see John Freeman in there anywhere, those guys will be my new favourite game developers.

Uh... what? I think you're losing your sense of meme, HAL. I'm sure Dr Phil can sort that for you.

Lulz. I was not aware of that. Still, though, I stand by what I said earlier.

I am more concerned with Gordon Frohman



and yes I WANT THIS

Heh, he did switch the sample with cheese after all.

HAL OVER 9000!!! - December 2, 2008 03:29 AM (GMT)
Will they be including Opposing Force and Blue Shift?

Nope, only Half Life. Although I've heard another group is doing an Opposing Force version.

Nah, check my new signature, you definitely saw cretins. I hate it when my brain does that to me: you subconsciously catch a glimpse of a word, and you just have to find where you saw it.

That only got a laugh out of me because it reminded me of when one of my Games Design lecturers referred to Gordon as Morgan Freeman.

Quick update here; Black Mesa's coming late 2009. Shame, but I think it'll definitely be the wait. Come on, three quarters of a year is no time. Portal came out later 2007, and it doesn't seem a year and a half since, does it?

Jeffk38uk - February 17, 2009 11:09 AM (GMT)
Well least they are still confirming its still in 2009, even if it is in the later months. Now they just have to win the 2008 Moddb awards.

Genuinely made me laugh reading the last post here. Anyway.

Now who's ready to be disappointed in another month's time?

Jeffk38uk - April 16, 2012 08:55 AM (GMT)
Weird, usually it's the other way round. Game first, then soundtrack.

And yeh, delayed so much you wonder if it'll ever get released despite how much they announce it.

*insert valve time joke.

Pedantic much today?

Well, in the case of this mod, any news is good news. Especially since they didn't give any sort of news updates since two years ago.

Yes. I am pedantic about April Fool's.

If you have a problem with that, please say it to my face fucker, not online, and see what happens.

Black Mesa Source are doing their first official release on the 14th. It looks to end at Lambda Core (right before Xen, so it's still a good 80% of the game).

Countdown on site.

...I'll believe it when I see it.

The Virus - September 2, 2012 09:21 AM (GMT)
Pretty ballsy to put a countdown. After so many delays, it would be crazy to put something as definitive as a countdown if they weren't at least mostly certain. Good for them. I'm gonna randomly, trivially, just-for-funsies predict it'll be late anyway, but only by 12 hours or so.

Anon Jaxun - September 2, 2012 09:44 AM (GMT)
Oh. My. GOD.

Dude, holy... HOLY CRAP I have waited SO LONG for BM:S! Oh my god man, I just, holy crap I can barely contain my utter joy. I am so stupidly happy right now.

Sabre_Justice - September 3, 2012 05:10 AM (GMT)
Wait, this is actually coming out? I suppose after Duke Nukem Forever anything is possible, for all we know Final Fantasy Versus will be out next year.

Eastwood - September 3, 2012 07:09 AM (GMT)
It's a countdown to a release of an ARG which will reveal, after decoding an elaborate set of clues, the countdown to the release of information about the release of a countdown to the release of a countdown to the release of a release date. Which will be fictitious.

This entire vaporware project was orchestrated by Gabe Newell to keep the Half Life fans off his back between Orange Box and the release of a new Half Life. Bravo, Gabe.

If... If that were the case... I would be both amazed, appalled, and at a loss for words.

Jeffk38uk - September 3, 2012 11:02 AM (GMT)
That's only half of it. because clearly the release date somewhere has a 3 in it.

And you know what that means? That's right: Left 4 Dead 3.

:3

dragonsteincole - September 3, 2012 01:19 PM (GMT)
It is the 3rd of September, clearly this means HL3 is confirmed.
Seeing as I have never played the original to any lengthy degree (for a few reasons), i'm quite looking forward to playing this.

EDIT: Slow news day in the real world :P

Blur45712 - September 5, 2012 02:21 AM (GMT)
Currently replaying HL: Source to prepare myself for the release Black Mesa. I am looking forward to the release of this mod as I have heard about it when I just started playing Valve games a few years ago.
