I hope the voices were placeholders, I loved the grunt's over the radio voices :(.
Could very well be placeholder voice acting. It's common practice in the game industry. Don't think they'd overlook corny voice acting seeing as how polished the rest of the game is.
I totally forgot this game excisted years ago
The voices are pretty shit, but they were shit in hl1 too. I prefer them heavily distorted like they were in hl1 but eh.
looks okay. Most gamplay we've seen in like 4 years so..
I remember them releasing an article about how they thought they had messed up a large portion of the game because they were rushing it to fit their release time, and ended up scrapping a large part of it to go back and redo everything that they didn't like. I assume this was during their rush to release stage.
I really want that soundtrack.
The iron sights are replacing the revolver zoom and the song wasnt from the OST
At this point i feel like this is an intentional leak just to get people interested and remember "oh yeah black mesa source!"
And then forget about it tomorrow.
I hope they keep that voice acting when they release it. That was great.
When that one guy said "He's been killing my buddies...", I half expected the other guy to say "Buddies?" in MGS fashion.
The voice acting was hilarious. I hope they don't change it.
Gimme gimme gimme gimme!
Why couldn't they keep the same run speed as the original half-life 1 and take out sprinting? Also aiming down sights? Get the fuck out of here, that's stupid. It better only be cosmetic and not effect the aiming at all.
This thing's voice acting is bad, sure, but nothing compares to the aliens in Nexus The Jupiter Incident.
The voice commands in Jaykin Bacon SvT are better than that voice acting
Weapon sounds and music also need a rework but hey that's definitely a large bone they threw at us
And unlike some people, I can deal with iron sights on one weapon
Rather than use "The voice acting was a bit corny in Half-Life 1" as an excuse, they really should just go back and see if they can improve their performance at all and actually try to do a really good job.
Besides, the voice acting in that video was way past being just 'corny.'
It really isn't that great.
Also an FYI, the music that was playing wasn't from BlackMesa.
oh my god that voice acting
those marines sound so fucking stupid it's unfunny
Hopefully now the actual mod gets leaked so we can actually finally get to play it.
I mean, it isn't like I could do a better job at it. But I don't need to be a professional VA to tell that it needs improvement.
Atleast the soldiers aren't raping my ears with those radio sounds, and not using radios when they're speaking to a guy right in front of them.
I'm not surprised at the voice acting and I'm not going to take it into account as much when I play the game. mostly because despite the ambition of black mesa: source, it's still a mod done for free, noone is being paid and I imagine that getting good voice acting done would be incredibly challenging in that respect - moreso than any other aspect of the game.
plus its actually hilarious
But everything else than that looks amazing, really well done. I will just get a replacement voice pack when it comes out, just for the grunts though.
How much of the original team is still working on this? I can't imagine the amount of burn-out to take place for working on a project like this for so long. For Chris-sake I bet on Duke against this with a friend, I won as you can imagine.
Some info for your people. i've gathered from the official forums
1. The only 'iron sight' is on .357 as its alternate fire, no other guns have it
2. The video is dark, its brighter in game
3. You can choose between HL1 and HL2 style movement, but the maps are designed for HL2 style movement.
I don't want serious voice acting but that's kinda cringey
I am pretty sure this is old footage and the voice acting is place holder from that time period. I really hope that isn't the final version o.0
Why wasn't the player getting electrified from standing on the rails?
