Anyone remember a little game called Half-Life?

    Didnt Valve already remake the first halflife using the source engine, or was it a minor job like more polys and whatnot?

    It was a re-release rather than a remake.

    I, too, came when I first saw this mod... but then little else came out. Either they decided to work on the mod instead of promoting it, or they're succumbing ambition-itis. First there's a strong first impression with tons of media, but then the team quickly loses interest and dev drags on for years before until even the most dedicated groupie admits it was over years ago. Tons, upon tons, of other HL1/2 mods have seen the same fate.

    Still, they're doing what every modder wanted to do when they saw HL2: remake HL1 with Source. Hot damn.

    Hell, remaking HL1 in HL1 was a hot idea back in the day. I wonder how that mod is going.

    Brah, stupid Half-Life. Everyone forgets that Aliens vs Predator, released not many months later, surpassed it in innovation, quality, entertainment and goddamn rip-out-your-own-hypothalamus-to-stop-the-screaming terror... in fact every possible region except graphics, and consequently, sales.

    Sorry for the rant, it's a sore subject.

    You know what's cool? Being a game art student at the art institute of pittsburgh, a good friend of mine is actually working on BM:S. It definitely looks like it should be sweet.

    It was a direct port, it's the same BSP and whatnot just on the source engine. It was less than I had hoped :( However, BM:S is looking to be what I was really wanting! I would pay to have this actually :)

    Then can you confirm or infirm whether this mod is dead or not?
