    Been keeping my eye on this mod since the start of its development. If its done well it will be a fantastic revamp to the best game of all time. Unfortunately the site doesnt have any release dates yet :( any ideas on that?

    The worst sequel ever gives birth to a refresh of the best game to ever hit the market - who'd have thunk'it!

    I've been watching the progress for so long. I've been hoping Valve would buy them out and help them with the game. I would be willing to pay at least $10 for this game.

    This looks excellent, the weapons even sound better.

    Whereas i'd prefer they charged nothing, i payed for Half Life when it originally came out. Why should we be slugged again for a remake

    People pay to see remakes at the cinemas ALL THE TIME!

    Look up a movie called "Oceans 11"

    Nuff said :lol:

    Well, having said that, I came hard when I saw the trailer, this looks great, and I'm gonna buy the shit out of this, it looks great!

    cheers lads

    Same - And if the last few years is anything to go by, will be another few years before it's released.

    And fuck me, you bastards are so cheap. I'd pay $50 easily for this mod. It's been years in the making.

    A mod that has been 4 years in the making. With a development team (Valve) who have been notorious for delays. Yes. I can't wait until its release in 2016 with HL3.

    wow, nice vid. I've been waiting for this mod for 2 or 3 years.

    What's this about paying for it? If its for a fee that's a whole other level of expectation.. then there's licencing, use of valve's IP etc, unless valve is bankrolling them afaik this isn't the case.

    Looks great. A while back had the urge to play HL1. Bought the source version. Just one word for that: DON'T. Nostalgia tends to make you think things were much better than they actually were:p

    Can't wait to go back to were it all begain!:thumbup:

    Wow, if that trailer's anything to go by I'm sold. :cool: HL1 was an awesome game, and with a bit of graphics polish it'd stand up to anything released recently. It was the first game that made me so jumpy I would lose my grip on the mouse. :D

    Edit: fried_chicken: The biggest problem with HL1:Source was they didn't update any of the graphics. The source engine has a standard texture resolution 4x higher than HL1, not to mention the geometry of the maps...
