41 comments by TKAzA on May 9th, 2015

Welcome back Mr. Freeman, Black mesa is now available on Early Access, Black Mesa is what we had all hoped half life source would have been, a total re invisoning of the Classic brought up to date with higher definition models, textures and more.

Crowbar collective state. “Making a game with the scope and scale of Black Mesa is a massive undertaking. Back in 2012 we made the decision to release what we had completed up to that point, and were blown away by the community’s response, feedback, and improvements to our work. We want to keep that relationship alive and well by using Early Access as a tool for allowing our community to participate in the final phase of Black Mesa’s development.

In addition, our ambitions go beyond the original Xen chapters found in Half-Life. We have a standard of quality that we have to achieve. Early Access allows us to commit resources to bring you the remaining chapters with the quality that you expect.”

"We currently have the first ~85% of our single player campaign completed. For the last 15% we want to not only recreate it, but improve upon it to make it an enjoyable and memorable experience. We feel it will take us considerable time to get the last 15% up to our standards, and putting a time estimate on it would be a total guess.”

This EA release sees you playing over 10 hours of single player campaign. Multiplayer deathmatch and team deathmatch with 6 completely re-imagined Half-Life 1 maps on the Source Engine.

The Health and H.I.V. power up stations should not be the same as in Half-Life 2

H.E.V. buddy, they aren't trying to develop aids...

For each different DirectX card you are running, the water will look different. DX9 will look as the one in the shots, much sexier. DX8/8.1 will look less sexy and so on.

Really nice job here, though one thing could be fixed to the better. The Health and H.I.V. power up stations should not be the same as in Half-Life 2. Cuz those are the ones combine use and you should make some new models of the Black Mesa ones instead. Hope you'll change it, because it seems a little more cheap useing combine.

This isn't JUST a free version of HL: Source, this is way Black Mesa was meant to be on the Source engine. The community has taken it upon themselves to remake the game Valve did not and to produce it at a level of quality that we can be proud of while allowing the community to enjoy it. There will be many new things added into Black Mesa: Source, such as the features that were implemented into Source by Valve. Other new things will include new areas, new locations and new scripted sequences.

We thank you for being patient :D

is there going to be anything new, or is it just going to be better?

i'm still waiting for it though.

This mod is amazing! Feels like i'm playing a Valve's game, not a modification.
Now i understand what people felt like in 1998.

At first i made a really nice review to this game mod. But then i advanced further in the game and i got really pissed off... Yeah its pretty and scenic , yeah most of the voice acting is great and the music is fantastic but there is a huge annoying gash that just makes the game shit! AI: WHAT BASICALLY MAKES THE GAME SHIT AI: SHIIIT Soldiers...Im fine with other critters plaing running to eat you but soldiers(well the alien soldiers suck in this department as well). Anyway so where were we? oh…
