7 comments by Urby on Dec 3rd, 2014

Several sites featured our news article as thousands of Internet goers shared and retweeted. Reactions were mixed of course. For every person saying that the GoldSource engine still held up today, another would ask "What's the point?"

We have voiced our opinions on the GoldSource engine before in our Q&A videos. It's a part of gaming history, it's classic, it's clunky, it's frustrating, it's... lovable. The sheer number of projects both long running and new on this now 16 year old engine just goes to show that several people still have a special place in their heart for what is essentially a finely mangled Quake engine. :D

We don't expect to get anywhere near as many votes as last year, but we appreciate all the support we get from our followers and if you feel we're still worthy.

For old times sake, here are some of the most popular images from 2014.

oh hey, I just remembered. be careful not to put technology that are in tune with today (2013) instead of when the Resonance Cascade happened (about 2000?). :D

The only "official" year is "200-," so that goes from Y2K to Y2K9. But even that is pretty ambiguous as it's from Gearbox material.

But holograms, teleportation... I'd think they have quite the technological artistic license.

Actually, the 200- year was first shown in Freeman's acceptance letter from the Half-Life manual which came with the 1998 boxed copy of the game.

You're right though. The level of tech shown in Black Mesa means we can pretty much play with fancy modern gear as they would have certainly had access to it.

I'm curious about this mod...
Will this mod eat decent amount of memory?
Does this mod require a good video card or it require the same as standart half-life?

We are still working hard on it and I see no reason why it should not be out this year. As soon as we have a more specific date, we'll let you know. :D
