UT3 itsself is pretty cool. Mostly eye candy and some standard multi-player game modes.
But the mods are pretty cool

Played Black Mesa this morning!
Its absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
Runs great on my two GeForce 9800 GT's

I remember playing Half-Life the first time and I was shocked at the effects and quality of graphics. That was back in 2000.
12 years later, the Black Mesa team does it again and still retains the feel of the original game.
It was completely worth waiting 8 years!

The environment is so much like the original but with wonderful detailed textures and very nice reflections of surfaces.
Now you can interact with almost everything. Pick up a keyboard or a notepad and chuck it across the room...

I love all the the Source particle effects too... adds so much to the dramatic explosions, fire and laser effects.

Maybe I'll do a Mint 13 tutorial on running Black Mesa too

Exactly and this one is a completely overhauled remake.
Imagine your favorite old game and someone re-made all of the levels, graphics and models with modern engines.
There is a Doom3 mod that remade all of the Original Doom.
Its pretty cool

One of my favorite old games is Hexen.
Imagine remaking it with the newest ID Tech engine... that would be awesome!

Black Mesa is a remake of the original Half-Life
You can probably get Half-Life: Source for $5 on steam.
I havn't tried it yet in Mint 13, but I WILL!

Its amazing! Look up the screenshots and you'll see what I mean

The setup is a Windows program, no idea if you can get it to work under Wine or something.

As long as Wine extracts it to the SteamApps folder, everything should go fine, but first I need to install SDK,
I'll be doing it this week...

Played Black Mesa in Mint 13 today... also runs really well on my GeForce 550 Ti.
A little bit of stuttering here and there, but otherwise runs just like in Winblows.
I will post a tutorial on how to run it in Mint 13 after my Steam article is posted. They kinda go together...
Yea Linux!

that IS good news. Probably because its a bit older.
Seems like anything Direct X 10 or higher is having problems with Wine.
Makes sense because Direct X 9 has been around for years

So what is Riddick like? I don't know much about it...

Hard to say yet...it's different from the regular FPS, a combo of Role Playing and FPS. It feels like the game is a movie...so far, I'm still very early days and my impressions could change quite a bit as I play on...So far, interesting at lest!

And it's only 10 bucks! ":O}

I really haven't had the time. But I am looking forward to it. You say it isn't complete?

nope, the 3 Gig download is only half of the Half-Life 1 game.
They are still working on it. I'm sure when they are done the whole mod will be around 6 Gigs!
