Title: The Mayans Were Right! Black Mesa Source is FINALLY releasing on September 14th

No, seriously.  The long-awaited Half-Life 1 fan remake is, after a 7 year development cycle, finally going to be released to the public on September 14.  For those of you who are not familiar with this project, a very talented group of fans set out to completely remake the original Half-Life and bring both its visuals and gameplay into the modern era of gaming.  They've assaulted us with teases over the years, but a long period of total silence from the team had most people fearing that the game was now vaporware and would never see the light of day.  Fortunately, that is most definitely not the case.  Get your crowbars and HEV suits, it's time to return to Black Mesa. 

DISCLAIMER:  This early release will NOT include the portion of the game on Xen, nor will it include the multiplayer component.  These will both be released at a later date, as the team is expanding both elements from the original game.

Visit the Black Mesa Source website (http://www.blackmesasource.com/) and buy/download the soundtrack!

Temporarily.  To my understanding they just want to get the majority of the game in people's hands right away, and I can't blame them for that.  I'm sure the 90% of the game that IS there will be interesting plus, hey, it's free.

No Xen in release? Eh, not a big loss. It was the weakest part of the game anyway.

This is awesome, but I'm more excited about the Operation Black Mesa and Opposing Force 2 mods.

Too bad their site uses that Cloudfare crap. Keeps denying access.
