So nostalgic. It really is quite a good rendition, considering the actual thing was made back in the 90's. I'd love to see it ported to the actual source engine and not Goldsource. In fact i want hl1 redone in source, that would be fairly epic.
Heh, yeah. It's a shame it'll end up looking dated by the time it finally comes out, though I have hopes that it does. I was holding out for it for the longest time, but ended up getting bored and playing through HL:S recently. Bah.
Well Valve's games have never really been at the cutting edge of graphical prowess, so it shouldn't be too off. Unless it takes so long that Valve develops a whole new engine before they finish it, but hopefully they'd switch over to that. Or maybe we'll just have to wait for another mod team to do that
That's a good question! Maybe it's that most of the fan art you do see does tend to be more of a literal depiction of stuff in the games. Or maybe something about the games just lends itself to wacky colored stylizations.
My room looked like this after my 13th birthday, when my mom let me go crazy with tacky fluorescent colored posters and glowing shit all over my walls and ceiling. I like to think it was somehow the inspiration for Xen.
