Black Mesa’s Gift on Half Life’s Anniversary Is That It’s Going Retail!

Half-Life

Update: According to Deniz Sezen on the Black Mesa forums, the rumors about Black Mesa being ported to Source 2 are false: “Just to dispel a large rumor (and I know I’ll be viewed as the grinch that stole christmas): We are NOT on Source 2. It wouldn’t make sense for a company to license tech they haven’t proven yet with a released title to a mod team. Our [visual] however, WILL be improved. Don’t get me wrong though, we’d love a Source 2 license but our fans would be waiting another 9 years if we had to port again.”

Can’t say I didn’t warn ya.


Since I am sure many of you will have mixed feelings about the news mentioned in the title, I just want to make it clear right out of the gate that an updated Black Mesa will still be available for free and will be supported!!! Now, onto the details…

Dates for Steam’s Holiday Sales leaked

Steam

We’re living in a world where you can’t trust to almost anyone.

The bad thing is – if you can’t trust to your publisher or a developer even if NDA means nothing to them.

Today (or I’d say yesterday) a screenshot of email, which was sent to publishers and developers by Valve, was leaked by a Russian developer via Steam Greenlight – a system that uses the community’s help to pick some new games to be released on Steam.

Most of you can say ‘No, it can’t be true. It’s a fake’, but unfortunately – no. No it’s not.

This is, probably, the biggest leak, related to Steam that I have ever witnessed (but I’m pretty sure that I have forgotten something).

Yarr! Steam Be Soon Available in Pirate Speak

Steam

Sometimes ’tis hard fer international swabbies t’ find the’r way around on English websites, which be why services like Google Translate be havin’ come into existence. Valve be doin’ the’r part t’ make Steam more accessible t’ them without much knowledge o’ th’ English language by translatin’ the’r services into various languages, includin’ Seafarin’ hearty (Pirates).

Th’ Steam Translation page shows th’ progress o’ translatin’ th’ service into different languages, an’ one that stuck ou’ be “Seafarin’ hearty.” I`ve got nay idee what ‘t means, so either Valve really be caterin’ t’ a new, untapped audience, or they’s jus’ trollin’ us like usual. Whaterethe cause, I love ‘t.

If ye be havin` trouble talkin` wi` sea dogs, I recommend this here translator.
