Wow, it looks very good. I'm looking forward to playing it.
I remember when Valve used to make Half-Life games way back when...
I hate these fan mods. They get me so excited to revisit old games, this would be the fifth trip back into Black Mesa, and they very rarely actually appear. I was hype for more starcraft 3D total conversions than I care to remember.
And Valve will never make a new Half Life. They are afraid they will drop the ball, now its in their head and they have rejection fears.
It's practically the DNF of mods. Good to see they might actually release something soon though.
I tend to cut non-profit, fan-made projects some slack; Black Mesa: Source, just like every other fan project out there is made as a hobby. The people involved will likely never see a dime because of this project...unless they luck out and get snapped up by Valve or some other developer.
It's taken seven or eight years for a group of hobbyists to recreate an entire retail game...and a rather sizable one, at that. All in all, it's not really that bad.
