Thumbs up Cry of Fear coming out today

http://www.moddb.com/mods/cry-of-fea...fear-spotlight

Cry of fear is a very impressive (and terrifying) looking Half Life mod that's been in the works for a few years now. It pushes the old Goldsrc engine farther than anything else I've ever seen, and if you've played or heard about Afraid of Monsters then you'll be pleased to know this mod is from the same group of people! It's supposed to be out sometime today.

If you are cool, you'll call in sick for work and cancel any plans you've made to play this mod instead. You do want to be cool, don't you?

Wow. That looks pretty good. I'm still trying to get through Amnesia with crapping myself and now this? Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop wearing depends.

It blows my mind that this is a Half-Life 1 mod. Did they modify the engine any?

This. I remember there were a couple of Half Life mods that looked great and that I was eager to play but then I read that they had modified some of the engine's files, causing VAC bans

That was for the Paranoia HL mod, and was mostly a load of bull. They suggested to remove the modified opengl .dll if you were playing any GoldSrc game online because they didn't know how VAC would treat it. Turned out that no ones really had any issues.

Really? From this gameplay video, it seems like pretty cheap scares.

I said "It seems like"; that indicates that I do not have full knowledge. However, enemies just running at you screaming around any given corner while gunning them down doesn't sound geniunely scary. Again, I'm not stating a fact, just a hypothesis.

1.6 GB INSTALLER? What did they do, re-write every single line of GoldSrc?
