The Community Hub, The Workshop and The Dilemma
published: 2015

The community hub for each game on Steam is an absolutely brilliant concept. It gives users a single place to find and share stuff.

I have to admit that until Black Mesa was released, I never really used a hub before. Yes, I’d seen it for Ep2 etc, but I had no interest in using it. My interests don’t really include 99.99% of the content shared on the hub, that was until Black Mesa came along.

With the release of single player maps via the workshop, I have had to start to use it.

Which brings us onto the Workshop.

Je Ne Sais Pas

Starting in a dark and seemingly abandoned warehouse district, you need to simply keep moving forward.

Although sometimes it might feel like you are going backwards!

Freedom awaits those strong and courageous enough to survive.

“You are Gordon Freeman and you get a call from your friend, the scientist Kazus. He workes at the reception of the Black Mesa Explosive Centre, somewhere in the mountains in South America. He says something’s wrong, then you hear some shots and you hear Kazus screaming. You decide to take a look. When you arrive at the reception room, you see Kazus’ corpse. When you step out, you see only one thing: BLOOD AND BONES….. Who did this? You’ll have to find out and you decide to go to the Black Mesa Explosive Centre.”

How tough is too tough?

I received an email from a reader today asking that exact question; how tough is too tough? He is writing reviews and has received some negative feedback for those reviews.

I haven’t read any of the reviews in question, so my comments are based on the topic rather than any specifics.
