For some reason the screenshot are meh to me now, before I would be fanboying over it. But, I have to agree with Anton, I love the alien grunt model.

Meh, I'll still play it

Even though it has the most disgusting PR, I would still like HL1 but with better graphics  :ray:

The Half Life fanbase will have long since died when this happens. At least they're releasing something now though, and the part no one cares about is left out  :suicide:

The soundtrack is up for download and sounds great imo.  Definitely a lot more varied than the original soundtrack and some of the songs like Questionable Ethics 1 and Surface Tension 2 are now stuck in my head.

The guitar songs sound like linkin park without the shit vocals, and the electronic tracks sound like generic Hollywood movie soundtrack.
Overall: shit.
Ah?

Sound track is amazing <3
...I remember my early puberty, used to masturbate to the newly released HD model pack that came with the Half-Life Blue Shift video game.

When it comes out, I'm gonna replace Questionable Ethics 1 with this:

Linkin Park - Numb

God the phong on those NPCs looks BALLS. Someone better edit the VMTs on release day.

Also Barney's beard looks like it was drawn on with pen.

(Just showed up here after finding HIT again after 6-7 years)

Im somewhat looking forward to BMS although like others im pretty apprehensive about it.

They've been really pushing the Duke Nukem Forever thing, and I'd hate for it to turn up like DNF finally did.

Still, anything at this point that they release would be interesting to be able to at least take a look at.

Another old HIT person, welcome aboard. As you may have noticed HIT is kind of dead, so this is the place to be :V

It is released, people are playing it...
But not on Steam yet - WTF Valve?!
You need to get it from the developers instead!  :ninja:

Somehow I've managed to install it on my shit PC and PLAY a bit (!) - what I've experienced so far was pretty cool, but there's a point, in Blast Pit, where whole levels goes black and I cannot go into the game any further :O xD
Btw, You certainly won't have that glitch, I have some random crap 90s video card my Mummy provided me with, so... -__-  :argh:

I played a little. Impressive yes but not blown away. I haven't played HL1 SP in ages so I don't remember much when trying to compare it to BMS.

I'll play it to the end though for old times sake.

That's generally how I feel.

I'm pretty surprised they were able to release something so solid. I expected something incomplete, full of bugs, and with a substantial amount of graphical errors. Its nice to know I was wrong, the mod plays pretty well.

I know it's cliché, but I've got One word... wow.

I spent an hour just walking around the Anomalous Materials Lab, throwing things at people, spoiling their lunch and just generally exploring the environment. I love how all the dialogue from before is there without little to no changes and more bolted onto it like when you speak to one npc, another will make a comment in the conversation as well. The graphical improvements are breathtaking, there are some bland textures here and there but nothing that really distracts from the atmosphere. I liked how if you returned to areas in the HEV suit, more dialogue took place.

and finally... female scientists!

I lolled at the roflcopter reference and the comic con rpg meme talk.

Anyone else used the alarm repeatedly at the reception desk? Thought that was never gonna end!

You'd best get like a missile and cruise :joebiden:

Not even at Office Complex yet, I've got a Hell of a ride ahead of me I'll bet  :neckbeard:

It somehow manages to feel fresh even though I know where to go and what's gonna happen.
