You really don't have to defend them so zealously. It's not like anyone was clearing out HD space for Black Mesa to be released on Christmas Day. It'll come out when it comes out. If the team wants to offer up more false promises in the meantime, more power to them.

It'll be out when it's out. Anyone who's butthurt about it otherwise cares way too much.

So you're saying not one god damn thing is done. They don't even, say, have all the weapon models finished?

I couldn't care less if Black Mesa came out tomorrow, next year, or never. I just smell some pretty pungent bullshit and I'm calling it out.

I think he's asking for a list of things that need to be done before release. Surely a list like that exists internally.

No one on the team would be at liberty to offer up such a list.

lol I don't see why, seems like something like that would be better than saying "we're almost there" for 6yrs., but whatever...I've not been following this game, nor do I care when it comes out. Just seems kinda lame IMO.

I would imagine it's because they don't want the community to realize how far they have to go.

I just realized something. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't a BM dev say a while back that DM isn't even working yet? I could have sworn I read that on their forums.

I think they said they are focused on the single player right now rather than the deathmatch. I suppose that could be interpreted as it is not working like you said but I may be wrong. I am sure you can find the answer somewhere in one of these links:

this got me pretty excited when i saw this project years ago, im still wanting to play it. just the longer the development cycle takes the less impact it is going to actually have. release it 2 years down the line and no one will really care apart from the 100 loyal forumists that have been following for 6years.

Don't worry, guys, get on board the BM bus. It's only an undefined and unknowable amount of time before we arrive!

Or release it unfinished and no one will really care apart from the 100 lotal forumists that have been following for 6 years.

I still can't wait to play this. I'm sure my interest will be peaked once it's released as it has been all along.

People are too fuckin picky these days. Everyone is so used to some big company releasing games once every couple years that patience quickly becomes a deciding factor in whether or not the game gets played.

Some might blame the game for not being as graphically awesome as some of the newer games being released, and that may be the case for games like far cry 2, COD MW2 and Crysis, but even the most of us here know what it's like to look past a game's graphical flaws and play it because it's a fun game. And I seriously have confidence BM will be everything everyone hopes for, in time. And maybe graphics aren't the deciding factor, but the vaporware signal that triggers in our brain every time we start hearing about games like Duke Nukem or FF on Orange Box. That's certainly understandable. There are many fans of each game and their predecessors, but the longer people wait, the more impatient people become.

It's when people stop caring when you know a game is probably going to fail. I hope that's not the case for this game.
