    Fantastic! The best game ever made just got better! But why couldn't they do this to HL1? BlackMesa is taking too long

    (side note: That should have a capital T on the)

    I'm happy with my 2MB/s download, should be done in about 10 mins at this rate.

    This sounds pretty awesome, I'll have to download it over a weekend though. 1.6GB will take a while!

    1.6 GB is a elephant for me here. ISP caps/charges and top-ups are unearthly here. Oh well ...

    Is there an official torrent? Since its easier to stop start them either that or get a download manager.

    Well, considering my pc won't run the youtube HD video properly, I don't think I'll be running this :lol:

    Ugh. Ok, pretty much all of the changes to the main character models are horrible.

    I wouldn't worry. My Q6600 with 6Gb RAM won't run it without stuttering either.

    Sounds cool but why keep updating an engine that's outdated.

    Because HL2 is a classic and deserves such a treatment? :)

    I can agree with that. HL in general has been one of my favorite FPSs of all time.

    Outdated? I'd say, weathering the tests of time. The source engine still looks great, runs on distinctly average hardware and is very versatile. What's not to like?

    *edit* I'm not going to get this "upgrade" personally - the main characters lose all their personailty when redesigned like this...

    i really don't like any of those female character models, changed the feel of those characters. the male ones are not much better either.

    downloaded v9.5 the other day, with HD addon for my 9GB RAM+vRAM. planning to replay HL series when Black Mesa source comes out :D
