    anyone playing this, i just started a playthrough, enjoying it so far.

    For anyone who doesnt know Black Mesa Source is recreation of the original Half-Life and is available to play now for free.

    I thought the developers canned this project. Where did you download it? Can I get a link?

    As far as I know they're releasing the game in chunks- as in they've recently finished the Earth section and are currently working on the off-Earth bits.

    Typical, I wait years for this mod and then totally miss its release. Time to set down the xbox controller for a while and return to the PC.

    How does it run? my PC is ancient.

    Downloading. I've never played Half-Life before, so this should be interesting.

    Incredibly fun. If I remember correctly from when I played HL1, I'm about halfway through.

    Omfg I suck so hard at this. It looks beautiful though. I seem to perpetually short on ammo and health.

    No you don't. You need Steam and Source SDK Base 2007.

    I think this is one of the best games I've played all year and it was FREE!!! I will be very upset if I have to wait another 5 years to play the Xen chapter(s).
