i have a feeling that xen will definitely be much larger and different from what we saw in the original game. i am sure there will be the iconic areas, such as the gonarch battle, the platformer-style jumping puzzles, etc. but there is certainly some room for aggressive expansion of the concept of a "border world", ie "the space between realities".

and not to get off topic, but the new iphone will be just about as thin as the current ipod touch - ie REALLY thin. but i am more excited for iOS 6 and all of its cool features. I might just get the iphone because of it. but i will be going through virgin mobile instead of a contract.

Black Mesa Source Release Announced

Postby Blink on Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:45 pm

After being tantalised with screenshots and trailers for longer than I can remember, it seems we might finally be able to play a portion of the the delicious Black Mesa: Source on September 14th:

On September 14th you will see the first release of Black Mesa! This will include our re-envisioning of Half-Life all the way up to Lambda Core. We believe this is a great way to provide a complete-feeling 8-10 hour experience with a solid ending, make our fans happy and help us make the best overall game possible.

We are still working hard on Xen and BMDM, but instead of making you wait we are giving you Black Mesa as soon as it's ready! We're doing our best to help bring the immense vision of this project into reality, and we are very excited for what the future brings!


An new iPhone and Black Mesa: Source all in one month? Mother of god!

Tease yourself even more by staring at the countdown timer on their main website. (via jangalomph)

What's "new iPhone"? Apple is actually creating something new? Pfft.. who cares about what that company spits out anyway.

Black Mesa coming this month? Damn.. I hope it's happening for real this time. Even though Xen is left out, I'm sure it'll be a blast to play that mod finally! :)

its an odd choice to leave xen out in this release. With the arrival of displacements one would assume Xen isn't that hard to recreate and improve (unless they are going for a completely different approach). An additional two or three months to finish the entire game at once would probably be a better choice, imho.

Anyway, can't wait to see what they've made, even if some of it is years old :)

Raminator (lead level designer) says that Xen will almost be a game in itself.

I am extatic about this, I really am. Glad I get back from my trip before it comes out. I am using a cruddy computer right now that almost makes me cry after taking five minuets to boot up, so I will be looking forward to getting back and playing it on my nice PC.

Ya that's really weird, but awesome! Can't wait!

Apple's trying to do a model year style thing with the iPhone. Since they can't do anything new or original they aren't going to come out with any new products or upgrades, just updates.

I'm excited for it to be released, but I also have a fear that it will be awful after all this time.

I can still go back and play the first Half Life and enjoy it a lot. I doubt this mod is going to be bad at all.
