For less than 4 quid I'll take a trip down memory lane with Black Mesa!

Looks like it will run just fine on my old laptop as well,thanks Red.


A guy walks into a bar and hears two women speaking in a British accent. He asks, "Are you ladies from England?" One says to him "No, it's Wales, you idiot!" So, then the guy says, "Okay, sorry. So, are you two whales from England?"

I enjoyed Black Mesa but I found the game to be a bit TOO long. Around the 20 hour mark I was ready for the game to end but it took me another 10 hours to finish it because it got ridiculously difficult in the later levels.

Well at least for the sale price you get more then your moneys worth.

I am playing G String and the ambience Is very well captured (dystopian cyberpunk) IMO. I am only In the first chapter but yeah enjoying It.

Black Mesa was fun, but yes, once you made it to Alien world it sure seemed like the game would go on forever! There were some very obscure puzzles there, too. I enjoyed them.

As I mentioned before the game was fun overall but I think the developers made the game unnecessarily long (ie long-winded) and by the last couple of hours I was like the guy stuck at a super boring family get-together who is looking at his watch every 5 minutes.
