Half-Life Remake Gets A Release Date

While we beg, plead, and yell at Valve to release another Half-Life game, the folks behind Black Mesa, the unofficial remake of the original Half-Life, have announced that the first build of the game will be releasing very soon.
You’ll be able to download Black Mesa when it releases on September 14. Unfortuantely, the game is not completely finished; this release will only take you up to the Lambda Core. In the meantime, the developers are working hard on finishing the Xen levels. (Black Mesa, Black Mesa: Source, Half-Life, PC, Valve)

? console version? ummmmm I played HL 1 and 2.....I have a gaming PC. I just wasn't a huge fan of it. maybe because I played it when it was pretty old. I could understand why people would love it back in the day.

but i played HL 1 after i Played HL 2 lol.

just not a huge fan of shooters in general honestly, let alone I don't like the characters in the game nor the story

I can understand not really liking the game that much if you played it years after its release. Other FPS's have surpassed it in terms of gameplay. But how could you not like the story?

I'm guessing you don't realize how deep the story goes because they don't do the best job of revealing it all in the game, IMO. You should read this:

Well at least there is something of it to play now, but everyone's interest in this has faded. It was supposed to release back in 2009 I think xD. Better late than never :3

It's cool that they've got the majority of the game done, but I sorta just want the whole thing. If I can wait eight years, I can wait however long it takes to finish the rest of it at this point.

The game is already below standards at this point. I don't even understand the point of continuing this project if it's already old and outdated by todays standards. Should of came out when it was originally instated. If you must play a different version then go play the Dreamcast or ps2 or if you didn't the pc version.

This sure took a long time. This was in development back in like 2005 and its still not even fully completed. Its free so I guess you don't got anything to lose.

Wow. I totally gave up on this one. It'll be fun to replay the HL1 story but I think it took a little too long to make so the main reason of remaking it (better graphics) is a little lost. Graphics have gone way beyond the Source engine, IMO.

No complaints though. It is free after all.
