I'll probably save your life one day...
Check your tutorial aW and feel free to get started, buddy. I'll be around. :D
Well, I don't think ANYONE expected that! Awesome!
Could I encourage those who go for other options tell us what they are? It makes our collective lives easy!
Congratulations. You sexy beast you!

Blck, I'm all ears, if you wanna get me on IM and discuss ideas.
Viva la HBM!
If they look natural, or aren't ingame. No more American movie ads on North Korean missile silos. Yes, Chaos Theory, I am looking at you. Bah.
Bravery is not a function of firepower. Right, Paul?
Nice signature with the consoles. I was going to do that, but then I made a PC one instead. Happy Christmas!
Heh, I got Twilight Princess, played it for a little while (til I was about to start on the fire temple) then I had to go to a conference in Melbourne for a bit over a week. I only get back a couple of days ago, and I've just started on the Water Temple. I'm trying to do all the side quests and mini-games I can though. I love that about Zelda.
See the current mod award?XD
Sexy. Very, very sexy.
HYPE! But damn me, I want this.

I 100% agree with you there, which is why I said: "arguably of a higher quality." I totally agree it's an opinionated thing, and I think anyone saying that their work is objectively better or worse than yours would be wrong.
The simple fact is both mods have a very high standard of quality. Famous for it. One recieved considerably more attention that the other, probably due to the popular I.P. One has recieved two awards in the time the other has recieved none, despite the other releasing more than twice the media. It's understandable to have some misgivings, although not at the Black Mesa team, as everyone agrees.
Let's leave it at that. I'd prefer to either end this discussion or take it away from the profile. If anyone would like further information, simply P.M. me.
After lengthy deliberation, this is my official Favourite Screenshot Ever(tm). Any game or mod. Ever.
Although I'm sure Wraiyth would say he isn't jealous, I can see that a little jealousy is fair in this instance. You guys have recieved two awards in the past six months, and have released two sets of media in the past twelve months. Nightfall has recieved no awards, and released more than double the media in the same time, each set of an arguably higher quality.
I had said to Wraiyth that Nightfall was in the shortlist, due for the next round of awards. Then, when the award if given to you, Kester, and the team, one can understand his feelings. I know you didn't ask for it, and I don't think Wraiyth is particularly angry at anyone in particular, least of all you. I assume it just seems a tad unfair to him, which I'm sure both you and I can empathise with.
But, as you say, this was out of all of our hands. Just something that happened. Let's not let anyone lose any respect here over this. As Samuel L. Jackson would say: "We're gonna be like little Fonzies."
A little over three minutes. For watching generally over an hour of trailers. Sorry, but if these little ads are what keeps us able to show video content, I really don't see where the problem is.
On Wraiyth's note, I'm afraid I'm going to have to do the funky politician thing and say: "I won't be taking any questions." I might monitor what happens here, but I won't be justifying my opinion. This wasn't my choice for another award, and if procedure had been followed, it would not have recieved another one. However, it has one, and it has made a great media release, that should be enough for anyone.
In future, there shouldn't be this kind of debate. Cheers.
Heh. DESTROY!. Love the Motley Crue. Love the Padman Video.
It's my personal opinion that this award isn't deserved. As Awards Manager, that's a pretty important thing to say, and indeed not one I say lightly. This doesn't mean that I don't like this mod, or that I'm not going to play it, however, I don't believe the recent media release was "Visual Delight" worthy, and considering Black Mesa recently recieved Mod of the Moment, it wasn't part of our award shortlist for the next forseeable rounds of awarding.
However, it was awarded by a staff member who didn't completely grasp the changing procedures for Mod Awards, and has had certain detramental effects, such as cutting the very deserving Dream Casters' Duel's award time in half and sparking the contreversy with Wraiyth and some others.
This is a mod that inspires more polar opinions than any other we know of in development, as I'm sure Kester and the team would agree. However, we have awarded them in the past, and will continue to recognise their achievements with equal preportion to the similar achievements of other modifications on this website.
I've discussed the matter personally with Wraiyth, and apologise for the deliberations to the Black Mesa team. Please enjoy your award for the duration of it, and know that even if it wasn't the primary nominated choice, it's a very anticipated mod by the majority of the community. Congratulations on great work.
Meh, they all look like a Killing Floor rip off if you ask me. X)
Roll an alt on Firiona Vie, I'm roleplaying this time round, and I'm pretty sure it's the best current ruleset (no NODROP, NOTRADE, NOCAMP or Attunable items). We should make sure we get on the same Vanguard server, too.
Man, I'm pretty sure Twilight Princess is my favourite game ever. It's just sooo ******* cool.
Yeah, let's not get upset about something simple like this. It's a good newspost, I'm interested.
Come on, a thirty second advertisement allows us to compensate for the bandwidth heavy videos we're now hosting. It allows us to keep all our content fresh and free. Surely it isn't too much to ask you to sit through thirty seconds of video?
Go then, I got the PM saying it was going to be archived, but go all you like. I don't need it for the time being.
It's been archived already. It's cool, it's not active at the moment, I'll get someone to delete it later. Cheers.
So, so sexy.
Nice stuff. Lovin' the Lego AK-47.
Beuno Mafioso! Io parlo Italiano.
I look forward to seeing what Natural Selection 2 can deliver.
