I just recognized I did not comment on this, just added it to my favs instantly that day ^^

So, I LOVE it !!! :D
Looks a bit like "Nihilants Danceclub" but still awesome!

Would be really great to see more Half-Life related stuff, just to mention!

I saw that crowbar video after I made my comment. (It wasn't like that.) I should have said I had two health after beating it with a crowbar (which was after I nearly ran out of every other ammo).

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.

There's a mod team that's working on that, actually [link]

...except they're following in Valve tradition of never bloody releasing the damn thing.

ChemicalAlia Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
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 :noes:

They were in 1998 and 2004.

This is true. I guess what I should've said was that Valve's games haven't been at the cutting edge recently.

LOL Lisa Frank Lunch Box Explosion. What is it about Half Life that makes it seem more cool in multicolor?
[link] vs. [link]

ChemicalAlia Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
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.

I can't see my own floor as well.
Sometimes, to test how deep it is, I throw something down and wait for the sound of it hitting the ground.

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.

Of course, Xen was inspired by a 13 year old's seizure-inducing bedroom :lol:
