HL2SP: Black Mesa
Obligatory news post. Though you must have been living under a rock if you haven't heard about this yet.

Black Mesa (formerly Black Mesa: Source) is a modern remake of the classic Half-Life on the Source engine which took the team eight years to finish. Largely faithful to the original levels, but with some variation and reinterpretation in parts to keep it fresh, as well as awesome details and visual improvements. The Xen part is missing unfortunately; it may be done and released at some later point.

The Source SDK 2007 is required to run this TC.

Missing Xen 
is a feature as far as I'm concerned. It really didn't fit in with the rest of the game. There were a few good spots but overall it seemed pretty disjointed to me.

Now if only someone would port Opposing Forces and Blue Shift over to the Source engine. 
 
I am trying to play RemakeHalfLife with Wine but the installer craps out. Can I just extract the 7z somewhere? 
 
The best thing to do with Blue Shift is catapult whoever decided to release that rubbish into the sun.

Up to where you get your hazard suit. Very impressed so far! :o

bluffing.... wow... 
Not Bad, But Also Not Impressive 
I've been waiting for Black Mesa for too long now and I had big expectations, some screenshots released years ago looked impressive. Maybe that's why now I'm a bit dissapointed. Or maybe after playing HL Source, HL2+ep1,2 it's hard to be impressed.

I've played a bit and I like it, I'm a big fan of the original game and I liked HL2 even more. But this doesn't have anything new, maybe if I didn't played HL Source a while ago... maybe... 
I Like It. 
It doesn't have the polish of a triple A game, but it was never going to. What it does do well is recapture the feel of HL1 whilst adding a few fun new features, such as the flares, and being able to have more than two NPC's in your squad.

It's also ridiculously fun to repeatedly bash a scientist round the head with a metal tray.
