Once upon a time in 2004, an ambitious and exciting fan mod project began to come together. It was called Black Mesa: Source, and it was intended to remake the entirety of the original Half-Life to the standard of the modern Source Engine. There was an exciting teaser trailer in 2005. Then a full-length trailer in 2008. Then there was a release date of late 2009, which came and went. And then there was a great deal of bugger-all. 

But now, finally, just when the wait has gone on so long that I've gone past the point of frustration and actually forgotten that the project was happening at all - whereby any new information actually becomes an exciting surprise all over again - some new screens have been released. Along with some teases that the mod might actually, maybe, really, possibly, if we all sit around in a circle, join hands and hum at just the right cosmic frequency, be released soon

So get humming, people. Hum until your lips bleed.

    This takes me back to the first time I ever played Half Life, it’s still the second best PC game I have ever played (after Rise of Nations). If any game deserves a HD remake it’s this, hopefully Valve will take note and re-release it for the Xbox Arcade. Then again, we’re still waiting for Episode 3 after years.

    Captain Spain, this is not a hoax, however it is almost vapourware... I have been following this since 2004. Check out the website.

    Well, might finally get me into a Half-Life game. I don't know why, but I just do not enjoy Half-Life 2. It might be something about playing it on 360, or about playing it six or seven years after it's initial release, so all it's exciting innovations were already industry standards.
