    I'm pretty sure the suit had a 2nd power level that wasn't affected by the power packs, but would limit your oxygen and how far you could run.

    But yeah the torch would recharge to full if you picked up a power pack.

    Just started re-playing this as enough time has gone for the puzzles etc to be interesting again..

    My god its so good. If you still haven't given it a shot, do. Its what every FPS should be.

    Couldn't believe it when I was reminded that Half-Life was 20 years old yesterday!

    Still one of the all-time greats.

    It does look rather like they made the entirety of Xen from scratch for this, at which point does this become a mod, a re-master or it's own stand alone title?

    Either way, almost a decade to the day since the original 2008 trailer. Impressive for a bunch of hobbyists and part timers!

    I have been re-playing Black Mesa recently - I haven't played it since the original mod came out, and I bought the stand-alone edition recently.

    That trailer looks fantastic...

    Looks rather epic, black mesa is one of my all time favourite games (well it did have half life to piggy back on!)

    Been waiting SO LONG for Xen to be finished. Looking forward to blasting through it again. By the way, for anyone who only played it when it was first launched, PLAY IT AGAIN!!! It's been vastly improved over the last few years and is probably the best FPS you can get your hands on.

    Piss off! I was only playing it on my Pentium II 300MHz 8MB Permedia 2 a week ago! :grin:

    ... I think this is the most appropriate thread to revive, just to let folks know it's now released in a full form including the re-imagined and expanded Xen levels!

    Look forward to sinking my teeth into Black Mesa tomorrow. :grin:

    Xen's been released?!?

    I am so damn happy right now.

    I played through it quite recently, so can jump straight in.

    Got to play this today, and have got up to where I believe I'm just about to meet Gonarch. Going to leave it for tonight as I want to get on with other things.

    The Black Mesa team continue to impress. Xen has been completely re-imagined and even some like to say that in the original it was a weak end to a great game, there's no way that can be said now.
