The Mod Squads - Samurai Legends Dead

The Planet Half-Life Forums (thanks Ant) have word on the cancellation of the Samurai Legends modification for Half-Life 2. This project had received a lot of play, including a mention in a Steam update (story) where it was highlighted as an outgrowth of Southern Methodist University's Guildhall program. Word is: "The closed beta revealed a large number of serious bugs and issues not encountered during internal testing, which would require a great deal of time and effort to address and fix properly. The students working on Samurai Legends have graduated and are now working in the game industry, and no longer have the time to continue development on the project."

Not really.
A bit of a worry that they can create a buggy, issue laden *mod*, but still complete their course or what ever and end up working on *full* games.
Meh.
Guess I'm just jealous...
