Me too, I will definitely get this. Maybe a new video card to.

Re: Half Life mod...Prospekt...is Coming!

I was joking about a new video card but I made a comment because back when I enjoyed the crap out of HL1 I was on an ATI card. They use to deliver the reddest reds and greenest greens.

I still have interest in AMD. The only real reason I totally eliminate AMD video cards from my choice is power consumption. But, AMD is coming out with the new Polaris video cards using the TSMC FinFET 14nm process.

AMD Shows Polaris GPU To Journalists At CES 2016

Also, AMD will be using that new type of GDDR memory that NVidia is also rushing to use. It will deliver extraordinary bandwidth.

Also, AMD is eliminating Catalyst drivers (I remember when they first started, I had an ATI card). The new drivers will be called Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) drivers and they plan on having quicker updates at least bi-monthly like NVidia.

AMD Announces Radeon Crimson Driver Branding New Settings Control Panel

Now if all this works out and ASUS makes a card with the DCIII HSF like the STRIX then it would be real interesting.

Re: Half Life mod...Prospekt...is Coming!

HBM was the new graphic memory I was talking about and is in manufacture now but I think it will be expensive. There is a new type of GDDR5 out that is double what we are using now. This might be the more popular RAM to use until HBM gets more popular.

GDDR5X Standard Finalized by JEDEC: New Graphics Memory up to 14 Gbps

Re: Half Life mod...Prospekt...is Coming!

Some of the fan mods are pretty interesting and theres plenty of them.
I did enjoy Stanley's Parable recently. I just hope that Prospekt has an interesting plot and some mystery, not only a shooter.

I wonder if Valve will ever release HL3. Doesnt seem very likely now with Laidlaw resigning that it will be any time soon.

The trailer doesn't show any quiet moments or lab room interactions that would lead up to a good scare like the original. Looks like a straight shooter in open settings with multiple enemies.
