According to a post on the official Black Mesa Half-Life 2 mod forums, lead developer ‘natedgreat3’ claims that despite the lack of updates, the much anticipated mod will be released before 2011. Black Mesa has been in development since 2004 in an attempt to re-create the original Half-Life using Half-Life 2’s Source Engine. For those looking forward to the mod, this is great news!
Black Mesa Will See A 2010 ReleaseModding & Development
‘natedgreat3’ – Lead Developer, Black Mesa: A Half-Life 2 modification:
Attention Loyal Black Mesa Fans!
Feeling blue about the lack of updates? Clinging desperately to low resolution prop screenshots occasionally uploaded on the wiki? Tired of being cruelly mocked by the rest of humanity for your unwavering faith in “the final victory”?
Never fear. While it’s true that Black Mesa and Ep3 are in a tight contest for “Most Anticipated Half-Life Game That Nobody Even Knows is Alive or Not” you don’t have to agonize over it anymore.
What I’d do is this. Get some very, very powerful sedative.. like crush a pack of sleeping pills up and dump it in your Spaghettios. Then write a note that says “Dear Mom. Wake me up at the end of 2010.” Ok now don’t screw this up.. don’t misplace the 1 and the 0 and it be 2100. Or make your 0 squished so she thinks its 2011. End of 2010.
Then eat your Spaghettios.
Still waiting… Maybe 2013 is the lucky number. LMAO. Of course it won’t be. These guys are so slow, it makes my fingernail seem like they’re growing at light speed.
lmao well I did just what you said and my mommy just woke me up sooooooooooooooooooooo…
where is it?!
God only knows.
your copy pasted put down does noting to refute the inherent truth in his post. This is vaporware and I’ll believe it when I see it.
1. It isn’t copypasted.
2. “Inherent truth”? If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you’re him, posting under a different name.
3. Vaporware =/= developers communicating with fans and releasing screenshots on a Wiki
While your other statements are true, Vic, I disagree with the 3rd one, Since vaporware are “products, usually computer hardware or software, that were not released on the date announced by their developer, or that were announced months or years before their release” (Wikipedia)
Despite all the media releases the Black Mesa dev team has done and the very nice wiki, Black Mesa is still vaporware due to being delayed from 2009 to 2010 and will probably jump to the next year too (Raminator said that it will be done within the next 12 months on June 2010)
It is the 6th year of development and I think it’s enough to call it vaporware but not the Team Fortress 2, Episode 3 or the Duke Nukem Forever type.
Using that definition, yes, it is vaporware. And those two don’t see the project that way, either.
They’ll still play it, though.
Everyone stop whining, the best way to experience this mod is to just go play Half-Life 1! Simple.
LOL. This is quite clearly vaporware, you’re just sooo naive. have fun waiting though 😉
What you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, retarded, illogical, and incoherent response, were you ever close to what can be considered a rational and intelligent thought. Everyone in this website is now dumber, thanks to your stunning display of pure idiocy. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Tears of joy and hapiness.
They said this last year. I will believe it when it’s out.
