    it's kind of got that 'fakefactory' look to it, high resolution textures that don't look all that realistic or natural applied to very flat geometry

    well, hopefully the people working on this post the soundtrack next. Since they said the game would come two weeks after the soundtrack release, but from all the false release dates they said, I wouldn't be surprised if that doesn't work out either.

    I don't think we'll see the soundtrack next, I'm thinking more screenshots and perhaps videos over the next few months, then the soundtrack.

    yeah, but atleast the new media should keep the fans content until more stuff, and then, the mod.

    I didn't like the effects. They look kind of flat and... lifeless? They don't seem to have much depth to them.

    But since I feel like delaying Blackmesa a bit longer (2 months couldn't hurt), I'm just going to point out that their pipe placement is awful



    Look at how the end of the pipe meets the floor.

    So that is why I don't regconize the Vort pic. It's also pretty nice that they put in some facility's maps.

    My hope for this mod is up again.

    Wow, it amazes me how pessimistic and flat out stupid people are (minus the people who actually have a brain in this thread)

    Do you guys even know why there was a media blackout? Because they wanted to WAIT until they had finalized work to show, so they wouldn't have the 2009 fiasco again with all the false hype.

    This IS the beginning. The only reason this media has started is because they ARE just about ready to release. No more "testing phase", maybe some bug fixing - but no more WAITING.

    They talked about this moment months ago, about how they will start up preparation for release with an influx of media again.



    It's actually coming and if you are going to be pessimistic and a retard now, you had all those years when they didn't show anything to do it and bitch, so that just makes you a late retard

    btw, they only ever announced one release date: 2009. All the others were just rumors.

    They learned what happens when you release media before something is ready, just like Valve did with HL2.

    On the topic of G-man, i wonder if they will keep all the old appearences or add new ones.
    Have loved looking around for G-man in the other games and it would be fun with some new G-man sightings, hopefully clever ones.

    I understand what you mean, its just a limitation of the source engine and maybe a bit of the developer, but i am sure that while playing the game all the bump maps/depth maps and all the lightning will make it come to life a bit more and make geometry seem a lot less flat.

    No, some are from a month or two ago.
    It's like feature creep- those screenshots looked pretty finalized to me. It'd be nuts if they're still making significant changes to the level design at this point.

    I don't think any changes made from this point are drastic. Probably aesthetic for the most parts.

    Look at how the end of the pipe meets the floor.

    Some people were wondering about what I meant with this statement.
    Look and see how the floor in that room looks like it's made of removable panels and how everything seems to be lined up perfectly, and then see how the bottom of that pipe is slightly off center on that one panel and kind of extends onto the other.


    I was joking about how the development team wants to make everything absolutely perfect and that they're going to spend an extra 2 months going over absolutely everything trying to find tiny mistakes like that.
