I was wondering since it was mentioned awhile back that Black Mesa was nuked.

Why was BM nuked? Couldn't they written it off in a different way leaving story tellers to reopen BM lateron for future stoylines?

I know from what i read that it was done by the Gman and government but why was it nuked?

I hear also that their is a project out called Black Mesa source but don't have much on it but will it be a walk thorough of black mesa or is it just parts of the compound?

They nuked it to try and stop the invasion and to remove all evidence of what was going on there. I doubt they would leave intact just as a Bigman's playground. They have Chernobyl for that.

Black Mesa Source is the remake of the ENTIRE Half Life game in the new Source Engine. It will have upgraded textures, models, perhaps even sounds and level tweaks.

Bigman, wait for HL2: EP3. They'll probably explain what exactly happened to Black Mesa.

They make it sound like the projects at Black Messa were dishonest, immoral and bad.

Its a research facility with all the sciences involved and an experiment went wrong in one section.

They made it out as if the whole Black Messa was up to something that needed to be kept secret so boom, they get nuked destoying anything in that facility.

But in HL2, the nuke didn't effect anything cuz the creatures were already invading places like City17 and the lost coast. so it wasn't effective destoying Black Messsa.

That looks so cool. I cant begin to say how many times I played through the original Half Life when it first came out. Seemed so huge. Would be cool to take a stroll down an updated memory lane. Prolly play through it another 50 freaking times. Maybe they can be pestered into doing OpFor and Blueshift too. :D

So, you think we'll see a console port? :p

They couldn't let the public know that they had aliens from another universe in artificial eco systems and teleportation and other stuff. I mean that would be pretty bad just think. They had to cover all that up.
