Pity that they didn't use a newer game engine for this. It looks they try to push the last ompf out of the good ol GoldSrc?
The Steam version is on a new engine and is not on GoldSrc. It is running on a branch of the TF2 Source engine.

Not free? Bah.
You can still download the free version. But at 8 bucks (on sale), the steam version is less than the price of a cheeseburger, fries and soda.

why even bother with the release dates? i still remember the words "do or die" applied to the december release date when the august date slipped. maybe they felt they needed a push?
Valve even tells Early Access teams not to announce release dates, and up till now they had been following that simple quide. I bet they wish that they still had followed it. And saying "do or die" was stupid and they admit that. There is a quote about software development and it goes something like "Double the time you think it will take to make a project and then double it again" http://www.smart-jokes.org/how-it-projects-really-work.html
site has some funneh software jokes.
They are still adding things to the engine. Plus they would be the first to tell you that they are SLOOOOOW at what they do.

Is there anyone actually excited about the Xen part?
Where as the earth bound levels are considered to be re-imagined, the off-world levels are supposed to be almost all originalish, and you can see it from the Xen screenshots they have released.
I, like many others, disliked Xen. It did not have the quality of the earth levels while feeling rushed and tacked on.
Hopefully Crowbar Collective completes the game, I have drank the kool-aid and have the purple tongue to prove it.
