    I still have to pick this game back up.

    I gave up about a quarter of the way through last summer (right after the on-rails part, where it's nothing but soldiers rushing you). Guess I need to lower my difficulty level, and acknowledge the old man I am?

    I really think that Black Mesa on Normal Difficulty is harder than the original on the same setting, but I can always back it down.

    There's also a bunch of spawning glitches too. I was in a random section just crowbarring boxes open, and a solider apparently was hiding in a box.

    Yeah, I don't recall getting sniped from across the room in the original game by enemies with the old mp5 (as I poke my head through a doorway), but Black Mesa i sure doing it to me.

    I've also heard that they made the helicopter almost impossible to beat (not there yet, just other forum posts about the difficulty level).

    So if I play this in my Threadripper, will I be playing Xen on my Zen?
