Black Mesa=Area 51?

No? what exactly do you mean by “failed to hold”, and why do you think that’s anything remotely like the Black Mesa incident

And why are we talking about Area 51, that place is ancient history


#42

I think the only similarities they have is that they both held secrets…


#43

Then why are we talking about Area 51, there’s plenty of newer, much more interesting U.S. facilities shrouded in secrecy to speculate about.


#44

why would a game that came out in 1998 be based off a new U.S. Facility?

anyways, i think the mist was based off area 51 :stuck_out_tongue:

Enlighten me

Xen Aliens brought with the Displacement Beacon Focus Emitter are studied in the Alien Quarantine Labs http://half-life.wikia.com/wiki/Alien_Quarantine_Labs The Black Mesa Research Facility bears many similarities with real world scientific facilities such as the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Area 51 or the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

“Black Mesa is an American research corporation whose headquarters are located in the Black Mesa Research Facility, in the New Mexico desert. Black Mesa is apparently helmed by the United States government, Black Mesa undertakes research in various fields from standard scientific research to radiation, rocketry, theoretical physics, lasers, experimental propulsion, hydraulics, robotics, hydroelectricity, genetics, zoology, applied mathematics and a very wide spectrum of research into chemistry and all manner of physics research. In addition to this legitimate research, several secret projects are also carried out at Black Mesa, which are deliberately left vague. A large amount of classified research is carried out, including the development of high-tech weapons and defense systems, research into extra-dimensional travel, teleportation, and the study of Xen.”
“James.Curse Qouted”: “Plus Black Mesa was a facility owned by a company. Area 51 is a military base owned by the federal government.” James.Curse. If your saying Black Mesa wasn’t owned by the government or wasn’t supported or funded by the government then your lying Sir! No Company in the united states can make weapons or other advanced technology and defense Systems without a license it is Illegal! So was the government supporting and funding Black Mesa? Yes indeed they were to an extent. Did the government try to clean up the mistake that Dr. Freeman caused by accident? Yes the government sent in the HECU (Hazardous Environmental Combat Unit) to clean up the mess to either kill or question what they did wrong, and when the HECU couldn’t control it they sent the black Ops to cover up everything. So is Black Mesa Area 51? Black Mesa is Area 51 to a certain extent extent being in Weapons and Advanced Technology Research, but everything else No it is not Area 51!

Valve thought of the idea of making an Area 51 like place, like Black Mesa. It’s some sort of a reference to it.


#54

Wow, a double necropost. Good job!


#55

Black Mesa was based off Area 51 and other generic super secret base stuff thingys.


#56

Just… get out of here. The door is over there, thank you.


#57

Oh wait. I’ve totally missed the date of this thread. :hmph:

Damn :confused:

promiser is also either a bot or about 11 years old and unable to use the enter key


#59

Black Mesa is Black Mesa and 51 is 51

Yes because a facility that exists in real life equals a facility that exists in a game.
