Run. Think. Shoot. Live. Source. Black Mesa is the Half-Life 2 total conversion of the original Half-Life game. Utilizing the Source engine and its endless array of possibilities and powers, Black Mesa will throw you into the world that started the Half-Life continuum and introduced Gordon Freeman to the world as a gun-toting, bullet-dodging Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics.

Had to scratch my eyes and shake my head a bit, cuz I wasn't sure I was seeing things right. Glad you guys have been able to put out some new news, and good luck on that first release... it's been a long time coming.

i donno... the screenshots are getting outdated compared to the current engines and games, im afraid it will fail like duke nukem forever did after those long years of development.

Eh, even if it doesn't live up to expectations it'll never be the same failure that was Duke Nukem Forever. I don't know why you'd even compare the two.

Great screenshots btw!

Yeah well, Duke Nukem Forever failed because it was as old and flat as its title character's personality.

xalener Jun 12 2012, 4:23pm replied:

No, it failed because it was developed with no design goals in mind, and ended up implementing every gameplay fad in every generation it was developed through. It had no direction, and fell appart as a result. Don't try to look more sophisticated by saying your whole thing agains the game are the "flat characters" as if any other shooter protagonist has MORE personality. For ****'s sake. Maybe the gaming industry would get better if mother ******* started pointing out REAL problems in games beyond weak narrative and character development. You know, the GAME part.

First thing I did this morning was checking websites on my IPhone.

1) Hotmail : Okay, nothing.
2) a site of movie news : okay, nothing.
3) a site of manga news : nothing special...
4) ModDB : 2 updates?? Okay, maybe it's Opposing Force 2? Maybe Grey?


Mother of God. They did it. They authorized the media of yesterday to be put on moddb. That's the real deal. I'm not dreaming.
