I'm not that much of a game player. XBox, Playstation, Wii, PC - I can take or leave them all, and I generally leave them.

In the true sense of the phrase; I don't play games sonny..

That said, there has only really been one game that I have played and completed: Half-Life.  I enjoyed it so much, I also completed the add-ons Opposing Force and Blue Shift.

Mrs H even bought me Half-Life 2 when it came out - I never finished it.

Ten years on (yea I know - 10!) It looks like a return to the Lambda Complex might just be in order.

That's when I found these:





HOLY COW!

WHAT IS BLACK MESA?
Black Mesa is a complete re-creation of the game Half-Life, utilizing the
[more up to date Half-Life 2] Source engine. Black Mesa will let you re-visit the world that started the Half-Life continuum.

Although the first trailer shows a release date of 2009, according to the official website www.blackmesasource.com that is not going to happen.  It'll be released "when it's done"

I know what your asking - Why play a game that you've already completed?
Simple:
  • Nostalgia
  • There's no way I'll remember it all
  • I know it's going to be good - the original game was
All that and the price can't be beaten either!

Bring it on... after ten years, I can wait just a bit longer...
