    Black Mesa

    Is being released on 14th September. At last!

    Community Update - Black Mesa: Community Forums

    Soundtrack is downloadable from that site. Rather slow though, there's a lot of load on their servers for some reason!

    Loads of chaos on Facebook of followers of Black Mesa this morning. A post popped up saying "Released Today ~ ...in the United States" with people not realising that it was actually an event set up for the 14th. People thought it 'was' released.

    WOuld be awesome iuf Valve hosted it on their content servers for them to allow easy download and install.

    This has hit 100% of votes in Steam Greenlight meaning Valve are in discussions with the devs to get it in Steam! Should make downloading and installing it a breeze!!!

    So, it's out!

    Tried grabbing it at work but alas, no .torrents allowed and main site overloaded.
    For those trying :

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/0rxxzqws08...ckMesa.torrent
    Black Mesa Source 1.0 - Windows free game - File Downloads, Patches, Mods and Demos for PC Games at Shacknews.com

    Latter is probably best bet atm.

    After the 8 year wait, I'm chuffed to be playing it and I can see why it took them so long considering it was made in their free time. It's so unbelievably polished it's unreal!

    Highlights for me include:

    - The chuckle brothers mugs
    - hookng up a stranded scientist with loo roll!

    So many more things I can't list. I've got to get back in game, they're waiting for me... In the test chamber.

    Am I remembering the game wrong or do you get the crowbar later in Black Mesa?

    Slightly later. And unless I missed it, the shotgun comes MUCH later!

    The shotgun used to be acquired in a caged storage room was it not?

    It did, seems the security only has a pistol and ammo to share with you.

    oh well, at least the differences shows you the game is re-written from the ground up rather than just "tweeking" it to look good!
