Glad to hear you like it! I finally beat my irrational fear of sharks and got to the point where you get knocked out by the assassins. How far are you?

How is this an RPG?  It's just a remake of Half-Life, right?

I think it got Bannta-sorted... because you are right, it's a fairly faithful remake of half-life meaning it's an FPS.

The original release of Half-Life Source was a lame attempt to re-release HL1 with some source features, so BM took it upon themselves to rebuild HL1 to rival HL2 in every regard. They've been working on this for some years. I actually gave up hope they'd even finish it but I'm glad they did.

"finish" It's still not done... they got everything up to Xen done and then released it, it's unclear when the rest will be released (or if it will be paid or not)

you have choices where you can kill the employees or not...i usually do ...therefore in my eyes it is a RPG.

Ok true, I guess what I should have said was I'm glad they released something playable, rather than it becoming vaporware :P

In pong you have a choice of hitting the ball or letting it go past your paddle. Probably my favorite RPG of all time.

Agree... it depends on how you pet the sheep.
