Whats this now? I remember getting owned by you in the old days of regular TFC. Blows to my ego aside I don't imagine you has a bother. Also, Black Mesa will eventually come out, and it will be good.

Her point is that she's been taking the blunt of the negativity on here, and is fairly well tired of it. Honestly, I can't blame her.

Haha, what?

I got no problem with you, just this silly game. You're the only one here that can/will defend it, so you're my medium. Don't take it personal.

Black Mesa Source wouldn't leave fans pissed off if they simply stopped placing supposed deadlines at the end of their trailers or as trailing points in their news articles to keep up the hype. One minute they tell us "Don't bitch, it will get done when it's done." then the next minute they're rolling out deadlines and expectations. "Yeah, it'll be out at the end of the year." What no? "No, it'll be out early next year." What still not? "Stop bitching, it's coming along. It will be out in September." What? September? It's not out! etc

Well, if you want to bitch at the devs, go on their forums and do it.... At least then they'll be sure to see it. CE is just here to give us info. She's not in charge of everything. What happened to "don't kill the messenger"?


Hey, I'm as disappointed as the next guy that it didn't make the 2009 release date.... but I'm not looking to tie Catseyes down and torture her for it.

b/c that only works when the messenger isn't fighting for the cause. If cat's had just posted the link and stated how sucky it was, then yeah I'm sure she would not have been attacked so much. But she didn't. Also, she advertises that she is a voice actor and a dev b/c of that (or so I'm assuming), which means that she isn't just a messenger, but a part of the source. If I said officially that FF was going to be moving to Orange Box, and then it didn't...people would be pissed at everyone on the staff and not just me for saying it. But that also means that she has insider info about it, and could give a bit more info. I doubt anyone is saying give us everything they are working on, but even a list on what is needed still would be something. But instead she's very coy and doesn't really give out anything, yet still wants to fight for the cause.

And ultimately, her giving up...just proves that it is indeed vaporware. And I'm glad that I haven't been following this thing from inception.

Also though, Bridgett brings up a great point.

I don't recall her ever saying she was a dev.... just a voice actor. As for inside info.... don't you think they have the same kind of "don't give shit away" clause that the FF team does?

She's not giving up on the mod.... just on telling about it here.

well of course they do, or one would expect them to, but I just don't get how their clause is to be completely and totally unwilling to give out any information whatsoever. You would think they would be able to at least give the vague list that circ mentioned.

I know, and that's my point...if a few questions and statements, logical one's IMO, turn you off of defending something your passionate about, then IMO that thing probably isn't gonna be very good at all or really worth the hype it's already gotten.

Black Mesa isn't vaporware, for christ's sake. Anyone who thinks that is an absolute idiot and deserves a good slap on the face.

By the way, I read a preview for the mod in an australian magazine. They were given two levels of the game (One of them was unforeseen consequences, forgot what the other was). They said what they played felt like a very polished experience, so we know for certain they're almost done with at least two chapters of the game. Give them time.

Making an entire recreation of a 9-hour game is no easy task. A paid developer could accomplish it in one year at the least, most likely two. Five years for a mod is perfectly within reason. Not to mention that they're working on co-op and deathmatch as well.

(and yes, I recovered my account just to post this rant)

They're working on co-op? Alright, it's worth the wait.

DNF had magazine exclusives as well. And all kinds of people telling me that they've played it.

I'm not saying the game is never coming out, I'm saying that I'm not going to get my hopes up until release day.
