      Of course, this is 100% understandable, im talking AFTER the Xen release, anything before it it could ruin the surprise.
      Add those to the old pre-2012 ingame screenshots of the previous chapters an you have the 'Raising the Crowbar' of Black Mesa

      Oh no... How could you possibly let something so pointless distract you from the true responsibility of Blogging?!

      [/italics for sarcasm]
      But seriously, I'll absolutely read that if you do it after all is said and done. I bet you guys have more development stories by now than even the original Half-Life did!

      This is something I would actually love to see, a behind the scenes document in the vein of Raising the Bar (and that Raising the CROWbar title would clearly be mandatory). Though considering the length of development it'd probably take another decade to compile haha

      OK been messing with the HEV zombie. things I have noticed


      3. their suit is a darker orange then Gordon's. Though that could just be caused by xen, and the damage on the suit.
      Hm, noticed only now that scientist in dressing room making comments after you put on HEV suit. He talks about Mark lll. , that it didn't have so "loud base color". Could those ZEV have Mark lll suits? Also different HEV voice would be cool, something more "old compressed synthetic" generated voice.

      jokes aside, the Zombie HEV its using the 2012 public release suit, maybe it will made a bit more of sense if the dead HEV scientists on Xen have the same old 2012 suit.

      That'd be a nice touch.

    • They have said that Xen is basically finished and be playable from start to finish, I don't think it will take 3 month or more for the polishment to it. So I agree with Snaiper that it will probably be released in this summer.

      Of course, it all depends on devs since they have their own plan and timeline. But I believe everyone will be excited whenever it is out.

      well, they're creating hype again with the Xengine and this content minning that they theselves cleaned after a day, people are silent but waiting eagery for Xen.
      I hope they release more news or hotfixes very soon.

    • Damn! One month passed since the April 9th update. Text Update that is, not actual Steam update.
      I'm living in a weird state where, although i visit the forum and the steam forum section every day, time seems to pass quite fast cause of all the things happening in my life.

      I'm seeing the good side : Imagine what progress they've made since April 9th!
