Of course, I'll be headed to a gaming expo hosted by that very same site, so I'll have to wait until I get home to play it! Ain't that my luck. :ss-boohoo

OK, here's a mod I'll definitely download, just for the sake of updated nostalgia  ;D

Like I have a choice...unless my internet dies, or the apocalypse comes, I'll be there.



  And they haven't done the Xen part yet. Some are complaining, but I see it as a positive. :lol:

I just realized it's supposed to be released on Sept. 14. Isn't that the day when either/or the original HL or HL2 were released?

I think the original HL was released in November so that's not it... HL2 maybe, I don't remember.

According to my source ("source"! Ha ha! Get it? Oh, never mind...) Starfox is right. But bear in mind that my source is Wikipedia. ::)

 The Sims 2 came out on September 14th though. And on Sept. 14th 1812, Napoleons army took Moscow.

That might be a thing that could happen! I'll be the guy you don't recognize. :biglaugh:

But I'll find some way to let people know who I am! (Without, y'know, actually letting them know WHO I AM. Dem humans be cray-zay.)

So, I assume a wolf costume with "Rogue" emblazoned across the chest is out of the question then?

Sweet - Black Mesa has been "greenlit" by Steam, so you can download it direct from there on Sept. 14!

Even if costumes were my "thing", I get hot in a t-shirt. Trying that would be a great way to end up on a gurney with a wicked case of heat exhaustion. :ss-yuck

Great way to wind up as an internet meme too, if anyone takes a picture. So yeah, bad idea :lol:

Anyway, It's out. I mean Black Mesa, not my...well...in any case, servers are clogged, hosts are crashing, mass rioting in the streets, etc. On a whim I went to Shacknews though, and despite what I'm reading from frustrated fanboys I'm getting sort of decent speeds, 300+KB/sec.
 It's supposed to be available via Steam, but I'll be damned if I can find it.
