Well, isn’t this fantastic news for the start of the blog. Carlos Montero, the project leader of the long-gestating Black Mesa mod, has announced that not only they’re making the game’s soundtrack available for download, but the first release of Black Mesa is coming September 14th. This first release will include all chapters up to the Lambda Core chapter.
This is really good news. I’m curious to see how the mod has turned out, particularly considering some changes they’ve made to the overall experience, such as aiming down the sights. Then again, for a faithful retread of the original game, you can always buy Half-Life: Source.
