Hello friends,

So i just finished Black Mesa. and i have to say these fans done much better job than valve did post HL2. the game is masterpiece and even turn xen the worst part of Half life into something that both looks amazing and design very cleverly. they completely removed old xen and remove with something new.

its like they remake Half life 1 and delete worst part and replace with thier own superior version.

now something that got in my mind how about valve should fund these guys to remake Half life 2. imagine HL2 in source engine 2. plus they can improved the worst part of HL2 that is dragged driving section.

I believe there should be Black Mesa 2 aka Half life 2 remake. Black mesa is closest thing to Half life 3 we would ever got this gen. lets discuss

I'd rather just stick to the original. Still looks great.

Replayed Half-Life 2 last week, it has aged incredibly well.

The gravity gun is as fun now as it was when I first used it 16 or so years ago.

Not sure if it needs the "Black Mesa" treatment.

However, if some mod team wants to take the UnrealEngine or CryEngine and do a total conversion and make it look super duper cutting edge, I won't say no to that haha.

Yeah Source engine is an incredible game tool. The facial animations and textures still look good after all these years.

I think it'd have to go under a different name since Black Mesa refers to the titular science facility. I think it'd instead be called "City 17: Black Mesa 2" with Black Mesa 2 being more of a subtitle than the main focus on the game name.

They should really re-release Opposing Force on consoles. Odd it never, ever got ported. Fucking great expansion.

If they want to make one then go right ahead but it’s not really something that I’d be interested in especially if it’s a PC exclusive as I’m not into PC gaming these days.

Nah. Black Mesa is incredible, but it took them like ten years to make, and HL2 still holds up on its own much better than 1 did. Plus with some mods, you can make it look as good as Black Mesa.

@uninspiredcup: Yeah the HL2 Update mod adds some good details to everything. It's more like playing HL2 as I remember it and not actually as it was when it released.

For whatever reason the devs said Black Mesa would never come to console, not really sure why, not demanding game by any means and it's already being sold as a product.

true true, I get that, but there is no reason valve cant port og HL1 and HL2.

I gotta say its been pretty awesome having all the old doom games portable. Doom 3 on switch is my favorite version now.

Yep, something many modders (looking at you Fakefactory) miss and end up just making horrible mess throwing as much shit as possible.

Update combined with Mmod, which tweaks the combat and animations without fucking up the core game are the go-to imo.

Only good expansion to be honest. No need to play Blue Shift and Decay.

Decay is decent, it actually fits more into the main story-line than Opposing Force. Nowhere near as expansive, but definitely something worth at least 1 playthrough as a curio.

Blueshift, eh. More of the same syndrome.

Honestly, I thought Black Mesa was garbage. Hit scanning enemies see you a mile away instead of trying to be mobile and flank you like in HL1. Completely ruins the game. Level design and AI go hand in hand (see FEAR). Black Mesa feels like a glossied up bastardization of the nuance of the original Half Life.

Better job than Valve? What do you mean? Releasing a polished turd is not something to write home about. Yeah, wow Xen is pretty now. Big whoop.

It took so long for them to come out with the first one, I got tired of waiting for it and stopped caring.

Community team working (for a large amount of time) for nothing trying to make a professional level game. Be amazed it came out at all.
