Valve Speaks on Half-Life 2: Episode 3

half-life-2-wallpaper.jpg

Eurogame’s Tom Bramwell has an interview with Valve’s marketing director Doug Lombardi. He says with Episode 2 in the final stages of production, Episode 3 is in preproduction and will be ramping up very quickly. Valve hints that Episode three will finally take the gamer out of City 17. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the series, while fans wait for “Half-Life 3″ to hit shelves, Valve has been issuing episodic additions to the Half-Life 2 storyline.

I thought Episode 2 was going to take us out of City 17

It’s nice to know that the story is continuing so fast :mrgreen: .

S.T.A.L.K.E.R,

I think the news is about the fact that we wont return there for Episode 3 either, but that Lombardi is intimating we may be seeing something quite different for the setting by then. Though I don’t think saying we aren’t going back to City 17 is not a big revelation based on the fact there is not probably much left after Half-Life 2 and Episode 1′s ending.

:mad: dont you ppl realize that Half-Life 2 episodes 1-3 are Half-Life 3 just in smaller chunks so you wont have to wait 6 years

Lord Gothmog

On July 25, 2007 at 12:21 pm

I think they know that Clinton..hence the “Half-life 3″ comment in the news piece, but what makes you think it’ll be less than 6 years before Episodes 1-3 are released?
We’re already pushing that because of the delays between Episode 1 and 2.. how long till episode 3? Another two years? Valve did not win me over to episodic gaming with this.. they just proved they can’t do short term projects.. they have to make a major development cycle out of everything they do.

Does getting Team Fortress and Portal with Episode 2 make up for the delay? Maybe not.. I wanted to see them ride the excitement from the first episode but that interest has cooled for most folks now.. its been a year! I would buy TF2 as a game.. I don’t like that it delayed the release of HL2:Ep2 if that is indeed the case.

I’ve heard half life episode 3 will take place in the artic as seen in a short clip of ep 2 or 1 trailer.

half life 2.so i played cs:source then one day i decided to try it out.
i loved it to the end.and now ive clocked it like 4-5 times thats how much
i injoyed it.
i actualy played half life2 more than cs:source.i havent got episode 1 yet but i im planning on getting all 3 of them in the end.and i hope they make alot more half life games :neutral: :wink: :grin: :mrgreen:

Lord Gothmog….

To be honest, Half-life 2: Episode 2 was well worth the wait. And if you want more, then I’ll say that portal was also, well worth the wait. Any delay that we had to endure was fine, considering the “awesomeness” of both games. I know, I’ve played and beaten them both. They’re both extremely well-crafted games. Plus, I think that valve chose to use episodes because at the end of each episode there is some sort of revelation, or dramatic event. I won’t give anything away here, but the end of episode 2 is making very anxious to play the next installment…but in a good way. I’d say they were, and will be, worth the wait.

On October 11, 2007 at 5:41 pm

I think Episode 2 was pretty well worth it and so was Portal and Team Fortress 2.

Half-life rocks!!!

On October 11, 2007 at 7:58 pm

Episode 2 was AWESOME! Valve definitely heard gamers’ complaints that episode 1 was too short, they made this one perfect! The environments are rich and the battles are heated, and they didn’t skimp on the plot either. Can’t wait for episode 3!

On October 14, 2007 at 1:21 am

Well I just finished playing HL2 EP2 and I have to say I’m really impressed with how valve has continued and expanded the storyline. The ending was extremely well thought of that makes the gamer want to play EP3 ASAP. I understand valve has other projects, but I’m going to be bummed because we all know EP3 will take a good year or year in a half to complete. To bad I couldn’t meet up with some of them and “discuss” future installments :)

Hm, well, it looks like in the next episode the worlds of Aperture Labs and Black Mesa collide (Portal and Half-Life 2)… As the supercomputer from Portal jokingly said “Maybe Black Mesa…”, it seems it will actually be more or less true. Which I think is rather interesting. IIRC, Aperture Labs goes back as Black Mesa’s competitor for teleportation technology.

This could explain why Valve wanted to release Portal and EP2 together. And no, Portal was not done back in January 2007 (when EP2 was supposedly finished). The teaser released around that time showed a game that was more or less the same, but completely different. The recursion for Portals, was done by taking a still screenshot at that point, and placing it into another portal as a texture. This was hopelessly inefficient, of course. Besides, all the levels were different.

On October 14, 2007 at 12:30 pm

Yeah ep 2 – great game, but frustratingly short. but the story does keep you drooling for more. the battles were also really well done, and some good puzzles in there too. I’d suggest sticking it straight on to hard to play it first time, will make it more satisfying. I did that with EP1 but not this one :cry: ah well. Portal was also awesome! the ‘ending’ had me well excited

Phacider

On October 15, 2007 at 10:51 am

There are very few games that I will play through multiple times. If we have to wait for episode 3… I will have fun playing HL1, HL2, HL2ep1, HL2ep2, and portal again before it comes out. :smile:

Kupoff789x

On October 15, 2007 at 10:54 am

I absolutely agree with you Phacider. The HL series is just one of those series that you don’t get tired of playing through! Maybe I should buy HL1….>.

Phacider

On October 15, 2007 at 11:10 am

Kupoff789x,
I highly recommend getting HL1. You will get the microwave caserole reference made in HL2:ep2 then. :wink:

Kupoff789x

On October 15, 2007 at 11:18 am

Lol I was wondering about that! I had that line from episode 2 on my xfire status because, even without fully understanding the reference, I thought it was pretty funny. I’ll definetly pick HL1 up then. Should I get any of the HL1 spinoffs too?

Shawn Sines

On October 15, 2007 at 11:45 am

I’d recommend Opposing Force and Blue Shift (Hi-res pack was in this expansion). Though they are all pretty cheap so you might just get the Platinum pack if you don’t already have TFC.

Phacider

On October 15, 2007 at 11:12 pm

The spin offs are pretty fun, but I didn’t play through them as much as the origonals.

Colten

On October 17, 2007 at 12:25 am

I need to play opposing force and blue shift… Ive played through hL1 at least 4 or so times but never the expansions :cry: , and that casserole thing made me laugh

Hehehe just finished EP2 and it was great. When leaving the farm just before racing the helicopter down the tracks to the first tunnel, Just as you get to the tracks if you cross the tracks there is just enough space at the end of the fence on the far side to crash through into a restricted zone out of the normal game area. That was crazy fun for a while driving around in the air. It was funny because I drove off the edge of the world and flipped the car onto it’s top. Alyx was still strapped in and complaining so I hit the car with the gravity gun and righted it then headed out towards the vortex.

@ Panda,
Lost coast is a ‘lost level’ it’s just one level that you can play that was a tech demo for HDR before Episode 1 came out.

On October 23, 2007 at 12:13 am

As if it wasn’t said enough, ep2 was amazing. To me, it seems, they bring the bar up each time, so its just as amazing to me each time. I think that ep2 was damn amazing, DESPITE my ONE COMPLAINT: No new one piece hand held weapons! WTF MAN, WTF. some guy a load of lines up spoke of a reference to ep2 making him cry. I agree! I agree that is was a VERY sad ending. Dramatic, climactic and well exucted as well as sad. I however didn’t cry.

On October 23, 2007 at 10:21 am

Wow the EP2 is awesome, and the new enemy is…. well, looks awesome but wants quite much bullets in ass. At the ending. I thought this was the happy happy ending but those urr.. not spoiling anyway. And I need to play Portal, Opposing Forces and Blue Shift…

On October 24, 2007 at 2:28 pm

AlexFromBrampton….. there is lot’s wrong with me! Where should I begin? Nevermind…. back to the Half Life universe…, most likely we will be traveling to the stars in ep. 3. On a cargo ship named The Borealis. It’s where there may be a dangerous new technology (developed by Black Mesa rivals Aperture Science). We may need to retrieve the tech before the evil Combine get hold of it.

And no…. this is not made up in my head. Read page 059 of the November issue of PC Gamer (bottom half of page) to see a small write up and a picture of The Borealis.

Just Finished Half Life 2 Episode 2 it took 7.5 hours and the ending will leave marks in my heart. Anyway i loved it so much and just wished they would have made it a bit longer, overall better then HL episode 1 and the graphics make it so much more thrilling. PS. I thought Half Life 2 Episode 3 was somewhere in the Antarctic.

kupoff789x

On October 24, 2007 at 5:04 pm

AMB, judging from the ingame visuals of the actual ship, it most likely IS somewhere cold, however, I couldn’t really verify the Antarctic part…it could be Greenland for all we know. Anywhere cold.

AMB

On October 24, 2007 at 6:49 pm

LOL. I don’t know where i got the antarctic part, but i think i herd it form somewhere (another forum perhaps) anyways i just added my posting earlier because someone was on about it being in space and i disagreed. Thanks for the Heads up. I thought it really was Antarctica

OK, forgive the stupid questions. .. but:
I have played HL1 (the day it came out), HL Blue Shift, HL Opposing Force, HL2, HL2-Ep1, HL2-Ep2 (and lots-o-Counter Strike Source) – but I am still confused by the planned completion of the HL story. Are we to expect HL2-ep3 to be the end of the HL story? – or are their actually plans for a HL3? – and if so, is HL3 supposed to end the story? I love the games and the story, but if they do not end it as some point, it will certainly go stale.

@Robert Paulson:

while I have lover The Half-Life Series since Release day One when i had no idea waht it was or what it was about, (I really Like the BOX and never turned it over to look at the back. I just bought it with out looking.) and have been a loyal Fan since then. I agree with you 100% at some point the games Arch must end somewhere and it must answer at least 75% of the questions it left open.

However I have a feeling Episode 3 will not be then end of Half-Life. But rather Set up the end game. Wher instead of being one the Defence as we where in HL1 and bing on the outside braking in ala HL2 This time we finally Are 100% comitted on the offence, and finally finish the war we found our selves in the middle of.

I personly have a gut feeling, Episode 3 will complete the Aftermath end of the HL2 end of the story. but like said above. it this was Hl3 Then the game should have been called Half-Life 3: Episode 1-3, Then again, VLAVe Like to misdirect it player in it’s game, who’s to say they wouldn’t be above a little misdirection of the fans by saying “Hay Everyone! HL2:E2 is HL3 in small bite sized chunks.” me personally, If my company was attacked by hackers leaking my game like HL2 none episodal was, I would tell the world we’re not working on HL3, but we are not leaving you with out a conclusion. Here are some smaller works. to hide the fact that while the episodes are in development so is the gathering ofthe teck and features of HL3 in secret.

the Episodes get the pressure of being the announced game they are working on and the secret project is being worked on at the same time. Since Source is so Modular in nature. I bet that all the cool features they are making for episodes is more like a testing ground for features planned for a massivly updated Engine later for a HL3.

At least thats what I would do if I was VALVe and suffered a Hack like they did with their Iconic Game that made their company what it is today.

All and All I really enjoyed the game. I was crushed, litterly Bowing in my head in mourning the loss of such an important character to the series. Well worth the wait, and We find out, The G-Man is not a figment of our Overly stressed minds in HL1. Eli confirmed it. G-Man was all over the place and other confirmed it.

my main complaint is. Driving was still a bit awekard for me. I do like that in HL2 and it episodes that your steering and looking are indapendant from each other meaning you can look around while driving. it still was a bit tough especilly with the speeds teh new Car can reach. And i love the look and of that car.

Any one know what that car was modeled after or the closet real world equivilent of that body? I’de love to build me something like that for a bit of fun.

a single word fron Grodon Freeman will in fact destroys worlds. Then again so can pushing a crystal into The anti-mass spetromiter. I just hope Gordon stays mute forever.

On October 26, 2007 at 10:59 am

Ok,I played Ep 2 in 5 hours and Portal in 4.5. I still think for all the delays we had to deal with the game could have been longer. (oh well) I still think the best game is HL2(musta played 30 times) but Ep 2 is a close second. The fact that valve added a vehicle into Ep 2 makes the whole game rock. Getting the car in the game though stank. But the last part (won’t spoil) was TOTALLY AWESOME!! I wish they would make the next game with 4-wheeler. LOL. Keep up the good work Valve, cut the delays though.

while hl2:ep 2 was damn fine, i feel that the weapons have gotten to be a bit stale. maybe if they could add a new gun then it would be at least a bit more interesting.

Uze DaFarce

On October 27, 2007 at 9:52 am

E2 was a blast, salivating for E3 now. Pretty sure that was a 1970 Dodge Challenger 426 Hemi rather than a Charger. They both look pretty fairly similar (especially with what we had left to look at :wink: ), the Challenger is larger and the paint is a dead give away.

On October 27, 2007 at 1:35 pm

I have been playing the HL games since day one with Half-Life One. It is an awesome serious of games from Half-life to Half-Life 2 Episode 2. I love the story of HL2. I just finished HL2 ep2 and it took me about 7 hours to finish. I love how Valve lease us hanging. I just wish it didn’t take so damn long to finish the games. Mind you the wait for Ep2 was well worth the wait, and the length was much better then Ep1 as well as the game play. Finishing Ep2 makes me want to play the whole series of games from start to finish.
I hope that some day soon the mod team that is making a really cool kick ass source version of HL1 will be finished soon. I love the old game but I don’t love the old graphics even with the Blue Shift graphics pack. But to each their own.
I hope that Valve is working on a HL3. I hope HL3 can meet the expectations of HL fans. But for now, fans like myself will probably be eagerly awaiting Ep3 more then HL3.
I have one question. I don’t know maybe I missed this but can anyone tell me what the f#$k happened to Barny? Where did he go?

by the way, Episode 3 will be the ending part of Half-Life 2, but no the ending of Half-Life saga. sooo, I guess we could hope for next HL installment after episode 3. I think that statement was given by Valve, that episode 3 is not the end of Half-Life series. At least I’ve read it somewhere.

To start HL2 Ep 2 was quite amazing thou i was dissappointed they did not elaborate more on the past of the half life story (even stating in a interview that “questions will be answered” ) but still a top game and after playing multiple times the ending leaves also leaves thhe thought of another important character dying due to eli’s warning “at wat ever cost it must be destroyed”.
I hope the next game shows more what happaned to the half life world while gordan was in stasis. they could show this by alyx telling him in the helicopter as they fly from place to place. Extremely excited about the 3rd episode coming hope its not a too long w8

On November 4, 2007 at 9:21 pm

I think kaysjays asked a good question above… what the Hell happened with barny. I honestly wanted to see him again in EP2 but I realize barny (Or at least a Semobalce there of) has been in every Official Half-Life Game/Exspansion and in a great many mods since day one HL1 and it’s about time they let the poor guy have a day off. Still I wanna see Barny Grunged out and not in a Metrocop uniform next time we see him. Maybe in a Rebel Get up with slightly more Gear strapped to him desinating him ans a VIP on the Battlefield.

And I would really like to see him in EP3 as a character alot like Alyx has been in EP1 and EP2 so far. maybe as an addition to Alyx hanging out with Gordon lending his unique set of skill to the fights ahead.

I’m really not one to about the Time it took to get EP2 to us. It took as long as it needed. To produse crap it take hardly any time at all. Half-Life anything from VALVe is not crap. each time it exspands one way or another on the tool set they are building up for more great games or better additions to the Half-Life series.

If it takes 2 years to see another Episode and 4 after that to see Half-Life 3, So be it in my books, it just means that A: I’ll have to totally update my rig for the advancments in the Gaming Tech and B: the game will be a work of art.

Story has always been VALVe’s Strong suit, and I’m glad they spared no exspences to build yet another great story to add to the Half-Life Series.

On another note:

My friend and I are thinking EP3 may actully take place in Syberia (Sorry if it really badly spelled) From where City 17 is likely to be, And the fact that Mossman took a chopper flight to the local in a short ammount of time. Means that while high north in an area of ice and snow, it does not have to mean Artic regions. Not sure if Syberia is counted as Artic or not. just that in a chopper fule would be made all the more difficult to aquire and it would be no short trip eighter way to fly up to any where in or near that area.

anywho. I been doing a little looking and research… it deffintly look like a dodge back end. Challanger like one person already said is the closest match i could find. not sure of the year can any one guestimate from the paint? I’m guessing 68 but I may be wrong.

well well

every one of us seems to be a decorated fan, so please learn at least the spelling of the names of Alyx, Gordon, Barney, and so on. Borealis would have been in hl2, serving as the apex of the game, but were cut due to lack of time, gameplay issues, and the leak in 2003. The leaked version had a very rough and incomplete map of the ship ‘Borealis’, located somewhere in the arctic, so gordon’s intergalactic rage most likely to be spared for after episode three.

The car in E2 is an old dodge challenger (very good replication, I’d say ’68)
Their will be a HL2:E3 for sure
I’d guess that aperture labs will be involved for sure, Combine has been the hunt for portal transport technology (HL2 brought up)

But I wold assume HL3 will run under an even more sophisticated engine than Source

Think about, HL was sophisticated technology in its time, and promoted one of the most unique storylines ever told
HL2 comes about, with a new branch of technology (original) and expanded the storyline more
HL3 will surely have to be the conclusion, and get even more sophisticated

Not too many games stories go past 3 stories, and it is a gamble to go beyond
I’d say HL3 will satisfy the conclusion (the fate of humanity will be on the line for sure in HL3)

Remember folks, This is ValVe
If they came up with such an original storyline
And some of the best technology and artistry to present the story
ValVe has another game lined up for sure to come up

Cannot wait for HL3, but I’m sure they will HAVE to update the system requirements
Crysis and Bioshock have proven you need a GOOD computer to run GOOD games, and this is 2007 alone –> I wonder what will happen in 2011? (My guess on HL3 debut)

OK i first played half life when my dad introduced me to it , ever since then
ive been attitctd to it , as well as that Ive played Half life 2 and ep 1
, ive seen entire gameplay of ep 2 an pretty much know alot from ep 2 even when i stil need to play it ( might be getting it for xmas), anyway In Ep3 Its not the end , i mean c’mon they still need to exsplain alot about the borealis,Gman,
The Truth and alot more , if it was the end then it will have alot of chapters meaning it’ll Take a VERY long time,i believe that ep3 isnt the end and if ur confused on what i mean by ” The Truth ” If u ever Played up to the ending boss Nilith(sp)You’ll know what i mean. Anyway Ep3 Could BE the end of Hl2 so the real Hl3 can come in , that May take the same amount of years as HL2 depending.
About whats going on in Ep3 its clear that there going to the artic ( round abouts according to Wiki ) To find Dr.Judith Mossman, destory Borealis ect ect. And Just Because You have to ( or water) Destory Borealis , it doesnt mean the combine go bye bye XP;; , i know Valve has somthing up there sleeves an leaving us Fans in surspence from the looks of the ending of ep 2, if u go on wiki Half life an then go down ep 3 , There should be concept art of the Place u should be in ( thus seeing the advisors ect )

does anyone know if they do how they will incoparate the portal gun into half life 2 ep 3
if they do i bet the game will hav more puzzling levels meaning HL2 Ep3 would more likely spend half the game in The borealis or in the actual aperture labs which makes me more excited to get ep 3 right away to find out more about that girl in portal plus what is aperture labs (besides competing against black mesa for funding )and where is everyone in portal thi snext game is going to be awesome cant w8. :???: :twisted:

@ Maniac…
***Portal Spoiler alert***

As cool as that idea seems Maniac, you’ve gotta remember that, at the end of Portal, the girl is lying on pavement, and you can see forests from where you are. The borealis is stuck in ice. I mean, sure, maybe HL2:E3 could lead us there, but judging by how the story has been made up to this point, I’m thinking the borealis may be the only Aperture science-based place we’re going to.

Ninja Krow

On November 7, 2007 at 3:03 pm

In responce to what kupoff789x Said Above:

I’de have to agree with him on this one. At the End it was all forest and Chainlinked fence with debris of “GLaDOS” all over the place. It didn’t really give us a whole of of clues where she ended up after killing GLaDOS. Sure, that Location Could be Somewhere out side of City 17, Maybe even close enough that Barney might pick her up. She could be Colorado east of the Rockies for all we know, and yes there are Many refrances of “The People who are still alive” all over the place and not just in the uber friendly End credits song.

The Fact is, There May not actully be any now hand held weapon. I think they should and some home reintroduse Barney into the story and Say “Hay I found this girl waungering around the wood by the train I took out of City 17. She Kinda reminds me of you gordon.” but that would be just way to cheese factor to me…

Still we have no idea what time peirod eighter game takes place. We’re not even 100% sure where eighter game is taking place, and all we know is Apiture is mentioned in HL2:E2 and Black Mesa is refranced on slide projector in Portal.

there is a small connection but I doubt enough to bring a portol gun into the HL2 story. But here’s an intresting fact. Ever Tried IMPULSE 101 in portal? they didn’t strip the HL2 Weapons from the Game… They just added 1 new slot for the portal gun.

the end is cheesey(WAKING UP OUTSIDE)

BUT……. has anyone thought the gman might of saved chell in portal? she has alot of potential like gordon freeman, and could of been saved in the same way, ALSO she in in the forest when she wakes up :)

ull see her in ep3 and yes youll get the portal gun near the end of ep3

ep3 begins in the helicopter flying over the icy ocean with alyx talking to you about why eli wanted to destroy the borealis, it is also NIGHT.

Au star

On November 19, 2007 at 12:11 pm

I think it’s given that EP3 will take place on the ship called the BOREALIS. What few people know is that “Aurora Borealis” translates to the “northern lights”. Any speculation that EP3 will take place in space is complete rubbish. Judging only from very little evidence it will be placed on a derelict research ship in the arctic region. But some questions arise from these few facts…

Is the ship really derelict? Probably not, theres got to be something there.
What was the ship doing in the arctic in the first place? Is there something of importance there which Black Mesa did not know about?
Finally, what happened to the ship? In EP2 there is speculation that it is in it’s current state probably due to lack of safety precautions during experiments, if this is the case we should be expecting more creatures that were set free in the very beginning of the HL story. There may be other life out there other than the Combine.

Its all about reading between the lines.

I eagerly await EP3 to know the answer to all of these questions.

On November 19, 2007 at 1:28 pm

(Part Spoiler warning portal!!!)

At the end of portal u see a forrest right so there could be a connection between the area in half life 2 but i have a theory y at the end would a tornado like ending to finish GLaDOS off and through u into the air so remember just a guess couldnt they somehow see the explosion from the helicopter (if alyx and gordan are near her) and come check it out so u check out aperture labs where they could find the portal chik. lead on from there or u could like ninja krow said get either barney or judith to find her and let her take u to where u hav to go. But what do u think would fit more to elis warning the portal gun or GLaDOS a super computer

so many plots that could go with this story line.
i know this all sounds stupid but i love the half life series

On November 24, 2007 at 3:49 am

I think episodic content was the best thing the half life series it makes me feel like im reading a good book or watching a good series on tv. With episodic games the story line seems to come out and play a role in the game so it seems like more than just mindless killing, like when you where fighting the striders in EP3 the whole time I was thinking of what eli was gonna say about the G-man unlike halo whare you just want to skip the whole movies so you can get back to killing people with the energy sword.

(P.S. I LOVE HALO I’M NOT HALO BASHING MY TWO FAV GAMES ARE HALO AND HALF LIFE)

Forrest

On November 24, 2007 at 4:36 am

WARNING MAJOR GRAMAR AND SPELLING ERRORS AHEAD

IF YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED ALL 7 GAMES DONT READ THIS IT WILL CONFUZZLE YOU!

THE GAMES ARE AS FOLLOWES:

HALF-LIFE
HALF-LIFE 2
HALF-LIFE 2 EP 1
HALF-LIFE 2 EP 2
HALF-LIFE blue shift
HALF-LIFE opposing force
p0rtal

all this is just my rtandom thoughts on the series i th ink the p0rtal and Half life serise will stay seprate for the most part and every once and a while touch bases but it would be very stupid of valve to put both games into one GlaDOS is apparently “still alive” and it seemed she was able to port herself into another series of bodies so im shure she will pop up some whare in the half life series. valve went out of their way to make shure you understood that p0rtal and half life where connected via it is every whare in portal projector, in GLaDOS’s chamber it is also mentioned in the ending credits in half life it is GOING to play into the story line. apparently black mesa and appature science are mortal enemys so that will also play into the story… also if you cheat like me and do a noclip into the room with the projector in portal their is also another two graph bars that makes 6, 2 for appature 2 for black mesa and 2 for mabe another third party? more notes what happend to ALL the creatures of the old 3 half life games? all but the vorts barnicle and lithisaur or how ever you spell it.
here is a list of a few i remeber: the Garg, the pit worm, the pit drones, the zen version of the assissan (the one with the beetle gun and one eye in opposing force) the over evolved zombie that tossed acid balls from its chest, the bull squid, the evil spike tree that would kick your ass when ever you touched it,the one zen warrior that used the gun that shot hornets, the miniture ninorath or whatever, the big moma the thing that looked like a giant head crab, the claw tenticle and the giant claw tenticle (as seen in opposing force)im shure thats not all of them but as you can see only 90% of all the creatures that jumped to earth in the first 3 days lived so at some point valve must bring back atleast one of those old but not forgotten foes. also do you think the dood from opposing force will make a return? remember he was not killed he was put…. away for lack of better words. also if your a total freak like me and play half life on every console or computer their are also two seprate heros that went mostly untouched gordons two female counterparts gina and whats her face that made a dabew in the ps2 and slightly in the dreamcast version of half life 1 as side games for all those pure bred pc ppl remember the hasard suit how you were late to work and how their where two empty suspention areas to the left and right of your suit? yeah them. oh back to hl-ep3 the thing ant the ship cant be some sort of portal item because eli said that that if the combine get a hold of it we we all be screwed? that means that its a technology that nither black mesa or the combine have also their mabe a possibility of more rases because the combine are just one of many of the outer dimentional races and the combine seem more like the covinant of halo they talk over races and assimilate them, i’ve also notices that the combine havent shown their true faces the advisors are just advisors not leaders and the civil protection groop are just converted humans so the true face of the combine is yet to be reviled. I also get the feeling that breen is still alive but in, as he said: “a host body” so yeah i ahve alot of things on my mind now so im just gonna shut up and wait sorry for this spam and nagathon but i just want to get you people thinking

Not From Antarctica

On November 24, 2007 at 4:58 am

Ok just because your all retards i’ll give you the REAL story (spoilers alert!)

aperture science are the rivals to black mesa and THEY built the borealis but in an effort to beat black mesa for goverment funding, the borealis got lost in the artic (and yes it is in the artic, it is a boat and the guys in HL2 Ep2 said the artic) now (ep2 spoilers alert) alyx and gordan are going to fly to the borealis and try to either destroy it or use it against the combine (not sure which) and valve (i think) are going to put the portal gun in EP3.

i’ve also heard rumors that they are bringing shepard back in somewere (RUMORS!!!! so don’t have an orgasim just yet)

on an unrelated note: the borealis was originaly going to be in hl2 but since that leaked it in 2003 they pulled it JUST LIKE THE KICKASS HYDRAS! :evil: :evil: :evil:

anyway i hope this cleared things up for you 8-year-olds who can’t just look things up, even though you probabley just read the bottom because the bottom useually has the answers :mrgreen:

Not From Antarctica

On November 24, 2007 at 5:04 am

On November 27, 2007 at 3:32 pm

Speaking of half-life 2 weapons, I’m expecting the portal gun to be integrated into episode 3. Apparently the Borealis was carrying aperture science materials, but if you’ve played portal, Valve had to intentionally link the stories for that reason. Anyway, I couldn’t think of anything more awesome than having to kill combine soldiers with little more than a portal gun.

Combine_Superstar

On November 28, 2007 at 9:23 pm

If anyone ever played the HL2 Missing Info mod it seems that the next event would take place somewhere in Antarctica. Because in the beta and the Missing Info mod their was the Borealis ship stranded in ice, it seems that Valve might be using the beta map of Borealis next in Episode 3. Just Google the Borealis in HL2 and you’ll see some neat results.

Combine_Superstar

On November 28, 2007 at 9:46 pm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wx9iJ0jodnE found it here, the Borealis map from the Beta version used in HL2 Missing Information mod. They said that their going the the Borealis in Ep. 2, Valve may be using the beta map but totally updated. I’ve played this map and it’s huge, the ship is huge but nothing inside or anywhere in the map have any relation to Portal or the technology since it came from the beta, only the Portal Logo on the hall thats all, the ship is packed with Combine troops, headcrabs, and Stalkers. I liked the map and played it through, but there are actually 2 maps based off the ship, one where you cross the frozen tundra where the combine are posted throughout the map in small lookout posts and the Borealis is stuck in the ice and it’s a little brighter outside and this one on the clip, so it’s still kind of a mystery on how far you’ll make it on the shopper before some unforeseen event happens and you find yourself crawling out of a shot down copter.

A good buddy of mine works for valve he said that before episode 2 was released they were already working out episode 3,the Valve team is about a month away from finishing the whole level of episode 3 so all that should be left is working out the glitches and popping in the game because its the “rough draft” as they call it. his guess is that everything will be actually finished around 4 months into 2008, he doesn’t know what Valve wants to do for the actually release date for the public but it should be between April – June of next year. it’s a long wait but worth it for such a great game. should be the best episode yet, i don’t want to ruin the surprises for ep. 3, but there will indeed be some new weapons that should be quite entertaining to play with, enjoy

Although HL Episodes are a great idea, has anyone stopped to think that if Valve doesn’t make the money they want on any of their games based upon this idea they may just abandon a project halfway thru,

As games are being made into films I would not be suprised to see HL make it to the big screen.

The add on pack for F.E.A.R also had a lame ending hope the stand alone is better – another place another topic another day

Does a Dell Vostro 1700 with a Geforce 8600GT and Duo Core 2.4CPUs Vista 2GB Ram run Half Life 2? giggity oh yeah! it sure does even off then battery until the bat hits 25%. just say you don’t care after all you just read it.

I dunno but it seemed to me after playing the english version of hl2 ep2 , that the female voice giving orders to the combine sounded a bit like the one of glados … I know I’m probably wrong but maybe portal took place during the HL1 timeframe and now the combine are using the stuff developed by aperture science ?
In any case I’m pretty sure that “the girl from the test” dies at the end of portal

maniac

On December 5, 2007 at 12:11 pm

minor spoiler
To note calgar this could change but there was an interview with the HL2 Ep3 story/plot designer that the girl from portal will play an important role in the half life series but this could also mean either half life 3 or HL2 Ep 4
or half life (aperture labs or something) so im 85% sure she will be in the next HL2 ep plus has anyone listened to gladoos that she calls the girl an android need to look into that. But all in all expect the unexpected theres no meaning what they could pull and all ideas that ive heard would be awesome and hope this goes stright to ps3 aswell.

soz for errors done early into morning sleeeeppppy

ohh plus anyone thinking that it may be produced into a movie anytime soon may be biting their lip since steam/valve released a statement saying that all the scripts and ideas to produce it have been unsatifactory but if anyone knows him quetin tarintino i heard may be making it

android live fire i thought is referring to those robot machine turrets
and i do know wat android means but if u listen again u will hear she talking about bring ur daughter to work perfect time to get her tested and all that so its referring to human see the cunfusion thats y i asked if it is a ndroid just to be sure

kupoff789x

On December 5, 2007 at 10:22 pm

When she says it’s a perfect time to get her tested, she obviously means getting her tested the same way the test subject is being tested. With the portal gun. Android = part human, part machine. Turrets = machine.

On December 6, 2007 at 8:37 pm

Just been thinking about the G-Man…in the games he is made out to be a mysterious, sinister spectator in humanities survival. The words spoke about him by another Mesa survivor indicate he is to blame for the portals storms, with him supplying the item, and also essentially enslaving Freeman portrays him as a ‘villian’, which i saw him as in up to the end of HL2,Ep2. The fact he rescued someone else during the Black Mesa incident, albeit on his terms, also his attempt to caution a character (unfortunately, nothing could be done.) and him agreeing to ‘abide by certain restrictions’ suggests to me he is actually trying to save humanity from the combine.
Instead of kidnapping Gordon, he could of protected him from the Combine by putting him into statis, until awakening him at a time when Freeman could make a difference, his words at the start of HL2 ‘the right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world’ make me feel that way.
Sorry for the essay, the idea of the G-Man being good has been bouncing around in my head for a while. Any thoughts?

Valve has made it clear that these are the remainder of the story that was never reached in the actual game Half-Life 2. They have mentioned that Half-Life 3 is most likely already in the works (hence the two year episode 2 delay). As for what this means for the resolution of who the G-Man is we don’t know. (although it is slowly becoming more prominent a theory that the G-Man is in fact G(ordon free)Man). Well, you decide

I don’t know where that theory came from. Freeman wouldn’t kill himself, like he would have done had you chosen not to work for him at the end of HL1.

well i thought all halflife 2 onwards was amazing, but i thought gordon freeman was suposed to be put in difrent situations every game, and epesodes 1-3 were extrers of hl2. 1 and 2 were too short but i liked the way they added more enermies.
as for g man i dunno, but i dont think well know in ep 3

Okay here’s some info for some of the morons out there who repeatedly insist that there is going to be a Half-Life 3.

http://pc.ign.com/articles/711/711560p1.html

There is no HL3, the episodes (1,2, &3) are episode three. And if you’ll notice the very bottom of the article, you also shouldn’t be expecting a HL movie anytime soon. Personally I think it would be horrible (can you imagine Gordon talking?). Anyway, really now people, this article is a year old and it is the first listing when you Google ‘Half Life 3′. I really wish people would do their research.

the movie might not happen thats just what everyone wants but if they did they wouldnt make gordon freeman speak du to how it would properly cost less to use however they do as an actor if they go in that direction or if it is highly animated like final fantsy style it would make everybit of him easier to make

Who cares if they do make a movie playing the games except for half life 1 feel like a movie half the time anyway

On December 12, 2007 at 9:16 pm

sorry for going back up the thread but. im pretty sure portal is so posed to be during the hl1 time. because o the slid shows for competing between them and black mesa. but since everyone seemed to disappear there is some room for time offset. but the odd thing is the portal tech is much like the combine tech with the plug ins and turrets. so the combine using aperture sciences tech seems reasonable. thats just my theory. take it or leave it.

maniac

On December 13, 2007 at 11:26 am

It would make a lot of sense if portal took place during hl1 timeline becasue there is no invidence that suggested that black mesa was still running (obliviously because of random aliens popping up everywhere destroying the place)and portal was still competing with them like nothing haad happened but as usual i could be wrong

hey info is that ur theory/idea or is that solid info on the game
what i dont get if the toxins did kill everyone how did they manage to put a anti toxin ball thingy on gladoos so its hard to see even if they will link it to half life or start something else coz they stated that they are going to finish half life and start something new

Cannot wait for episode 3, episode 2 was so ing awesome.
Wish Alex was a real person, shes awesome.

Perhaps I am as close to the Real Alyx Vance as you will get! I have to admit, while I was working with Valve and their 3-D rendering software, I felt like Alyx myself. The voice that you have come to know her by was played by Merle Dandridge. Once while we were fooling around in the sound room at Valve, I would mouth the words the was speaking. Alot of Valve workers told me: “…you really Are Alyx Vance!” In any case, I was just browsing Half-Life files, and your forum popped up. Figured I would say a little something. Half-Life 2: Episode 3 will be quite the finisher in the Half-Life 2 story! (Shh! Thats a secret.) Have fun Gentlemen!

Half Life 2 took I think 4 years to make, so Valve decided to make the Half Life 2 Episodes so they wouldnt make you wait longer for the next Half Life game which might take about 4 to 6 years to make not sure though. Their wont be a Half Life 3 because the Half Life 2 episodes are considered Half Life 3. Just go to IGN.com and search for Half Life 2 Episode Two and check the news for that game.

(Spoiler Alert) I never finished Half Life 1… But I do know the story. A guy named Gordan Freeman was selected for a test subject. It was this big machine… (I don’t really know why they made the machine) Gordan had to push some kind of kart inside of it. Well the kart messed up the machine and it Teleported a bunch of weird alien things called Head crabs. They kept on killing human civilians and made stronger enemy’s. (And you played the second one)

Oh and im not sure if this is his real name or what peapole call him.. The guy that talks to you in the beginning of the game is named G-Man. He teleportes you to different places.. He teleported you on that train because a guy named
Dr. Breen Was taking away the freedom in that state or country. Anything else you need?

Kalian

On December 28, 2007 at 6:15 pm

Well most of this discussion has been very interesting. Here is an article I found that I don’t believe was posted yet.

IGN: Don’t Expect Half-Life 3 (http://pc.ign.com/articles/711/711560p1.html)

“”The original Half-Life took us two years to develop,” said Gabe Newell, managing director, Valve. “With a considerably larger team Half-Life 2 took us six years to develop, so we thought if we were going to continue our trend with Half-Life 3 we would basically ship after we had all retired.”

“Throughout the interview, Newell refers to the episodes as Half-Life 3, and points out that they aren’t considered expansions. Whereas Half-Life was about the G-man grooming Gordon Freeman to be a hero, and 2 was about how the G-man uses his creation, the episodes (Half-Life 3) focus more on the G-man and how he reacts when he loses control of Freeman.

Though Episodes 1-3 take place after the events of Half-Life 2, Newell doesn’t rule out the possibility of returning to the Half-Life 2 timeline, though.”

That was all from the IGN article about an EuroGamer interview. This interview can be found here:

Opening the Valve // PC // EuroGamer (http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=65345&page=1)

“Eurogamer: So far you’ve announced three episodes – is that all? Any more planned beyond that?

Gabe Newell: There are three that are in this arc. There are three that are worked out, and those are the ones that we’ve been talking about so far.”

I would suggest reading both articles. It seems to me that Valve planned Episodes 1 to 3 as the third installment of the Half-Life series (essentially Half-Life 3). However, Gabe seems to hint at the further installments in the saga past these three new episodes.

HL = God

On December 28, 2007 at 11:47 pm

Replying to Matthew: I had this idea for a while too about returning to the test chamber, but then I replayed Opposing Force and, unfortunatly, Black Mesa was destroyed by a nuclear bomb that the G-Man activated. Too bad, Black Mesa was my favorite research facility gone to hell of all the FPS out there :sad:

ZooL

On December 29, 2007 at 11:13 am

Well, I give HL2 9.8 of 10 and EP1 8 of 10 and EP2 9.5 of ten, but what score should I give for the end of the triology? time will tell.. but, i think it will Rock the world… values are thinking very nice and going deep in the story.
But in the other hand, they should make EP3 more Perfect, more major battles requied not only puzzles, more action.

On December 29, 2007 at 1:24 pm

there wont properly be another portal because it was a basic testing game of their new gaming controls (but i could be wrong) anyway i was thinking that they would be making a half life 3 game on the side at the same time as developing the episodes but after what “alyx vance” said above it will be a nice finisher all hope is gone to see half life 3 plus i saw an articule (ill try an post the website as soon as i can remember what site it was) stating that they are taking the half life series into a different perspective taking away gordon freeman starting a new project i guess but this could just be some more useless writing

without gamers games would get no where ( so noobish)

Ok well there is going to be a Half Life 3 but like I said before the Episodes are just small things you could play while they’re making Half Life 3 it might be released in 2010. I heard that you wont be playing as Gordon Freeman in Half Life 3 though. And for those people saying they should improve the graphics they are but not by a lot people dont notice it though.

Half-Life 3 [a.k.a. Episodes One to Three] is about the relationship with the G-Man and what happens when he loses control of you, when you’re not available to him as a tool and how he responds to that, and what are the consequences of that.

how hard is it for you guys to understand. like max said episodes 1-3 or not half life 3 they are still in the hl2 time line and story. ie half life 1 was black mesa and hl2 is city 17 and surroundings. most of the stuff in episodes 1-3 are stuff that was cut out of hl2 because of delays and the hack of the game files.

In reply to chard and max,

I found that interview online, on a few different sites. Just type in

“Half-Life 3 [a.k.a. Episodes One to Three] is about the relationship with the G-Man”

to google and see what it says. You are telling me Gabe is lying there?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the series, while fans wait for “Half-Life 3? to hit shelves, Valve has been issuing episodic additions to the Half-Life 2 storyline.

this is what it says at the top
(http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=76518)
EPESODES ARE NOT HL3 JOHN AND OTHER PEOPLE
[/quote]

Oh really. So when you went to the link that the above article is talking about, you read that the episodic editions of HL2 are just giving us something to play while waiting for HL3? It does NOT say that anywhere in the Eurogamer article that is linked on the article at the top of this File Front page.

3r1c

On December 31, 2007 at 7:40 pm

The episodes are HL3 go to IGN.com and see what Valve is saying.

3r1c

On December 31, 2007 at 7:43 pm

See this is what Valve said.

June 6, 2006 – In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Valve revealed that the just-released Half-Life 2: Episode 1 and the forthcoming Episodes 2 and 3 will serve as the third game in the series. Rather than make gamers wait another six-plus years for Half-Life 3, the developer thought people might appreciate playing the game in smaller chunks if they didn’t have to wait as long.

“The original Half-Life took us two years to develop,” said Gabe Newell, managing director, Valve. “With a considerably larger team Half-Life 2 took us six years to develop, so we thought if we were going to continue our trend with Half-Life 3 we would basically ship after we had all retired. We’re trying to come up with a better way of getting more timely updates to our customers and also come up with something that didn’t have the complexities. Projects increased logarithmically with how much we tried to do, so if you tried to put twice as much content or technology into a box it ends up taking you four times the amount of work, right, and so we’re trying to figure out a better solution.”

As for why the name of the episodes were changed from their original codename Aftermath: “I think that Aftermath was almost a temporary name. I always thought of it as Episodes One through Three because that’s how we planned the products out. I think people thought we’d need a name for them, and Aftermath ended up being more confusing than helpful. Probably a better name for it would have been Half Life 3: Episode One, but these three are what we’re doing as our way of taking the next step forward…”

Throughout the interview, Newell refers to the episodes as Half-Life 3, and points out that they aren’t considered expansions. Whereas Half-Life was about the G-man grooming Gordon Freeman to be a hero, and 2 was about how the G-man uses his creation, the episodes (Half-Life 3) focus more on the G-man and how he reacts when he loses control of Freeman.

Though Episodes 1-3 take place after the events of Half-Life 2, Newell doesn’t rule out the possibility of returning to the Half-Life 2 timeline, though.

Finally, Newell also warned fans not to expect a Half-Life movie anytime soon, as he had some unkind words to say about the script treatments Hollywood has offered: “They all sucked!”

Hello !

I think that in Episode 3 we shall be in BOREALIS. And im asking myself what was that video at the end of Half Life 2 Epi.2 with Judith Mossman ? I think they mention something about Borealis but im not sure.

Happy New Year EVERYONE !!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Bye

3r1c

On January 2, 2008 at 12:53 am

Valve mentioned maybe making a game about Alyx but maybe they’re still not sure.

May 22, 2007 – In a recent interview with IGN, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell hinted that some of the side characters from Half-Life 2 could become focal points for new games.

When discussing Alyx as the emotional barometer for the Half-Life 2 episodic content, we asked Newell if Alyx would be a permanent fixture at Gordon Freeman’s side. As it turns out, Alyx may not remain a sidekick forever.

“Alyx is a great character, we like her a lot,” Newell told IGN. “We’d like to do games that are about Alyx. We’d like to do games that are about Dog. I don’t think we’ve made this decision that it’s always going to be you playing Gordon in the first-person with Alyx as a companion… In terms of projecting into the future we have a lot of ground we would like to cover. There are lots of pieces of the story that have been referenced that we think would be really interesting.”

No just Half Life 1 and half Life 2 start in a train :cool:

kost

On January 2, 2008 at 1:34 pm

It’s very easy to predict what ep3′s main feater will be:

lets look at the facts:
our task in ep3 is defenetly to get to borialis and either use or destroy it’s “technology”
borialis is an aperture science research ship
portal hints madly that aperture science and black mesa compete for some government fund.
unless you have the same type of “project” you dont compete for the same fund (a super new car would not compete with a super new plane – different categories)
what “technology” is both labs into?
+++ PORTALS +++
how half life 1 starts? you open a huge machine that makes a portal..
in half life 2 they make it smaller into the size of a chamber..
whats smaller than that?
“a hand held portal device”
hence:
+++ Half Life 2: Episode 3 will feature some version of the portal gun! +++
(as for what follows – you will probably mass up with it as g-man and eli predicted setting up for half life 3 which will probably take place on combine’s home world)

Look up half life on the dictionary then you will see why they named it that.

maniac

On January 3, 2008 at 12:54 pm

to kost

nice theory a lot of us hav already pointed this out thou but black mesa and aperture labs (when?) they were competeing for the funds it doesnt mean they were working in similar theories of watever they were doing other then that its all good plus hasnt anyone notice that they are making the g-man look evil due to the vourtigants trying to repel the g-man away from gordan and how he has a purpose for alyx i reckon g-man and he refers to somethings as his associates or something at the end of half life 1 so hes working for someone and im guessing its wats in the borealis and hell properly be some bad dude ur gotta kill at the end

(theories help with the anticipation towards the game so when u play it hopefully it will be nothing like u said and make a much better game hopefully)
i went on a bit in this comment

ShadowBounty

about the 2 labs – common both the resistance and especialy the combine are looking for a very good portal technology.. what did aparture develop?

about g-man and vourtigants – i dont know.. in the scene where they repelled him i for some reason felt that he was the good guy in this.. i felt he was trying to help but they didnt let us. also eli tells at the end of ep2 that g-man almost prevented from eli to lunch the original portal (hence did he want to save the earth???)

about g-man – a realy crazy (or not) theory i have is g-man eaither isn’t a human at all (with all his powers) or just a pupet of something way huge

kost

On January 4, 2008 at 4:58 am

maniac

Like common – you closed combine’s portal back to their home at the end of ep2.. what do they need right now? a portal technology and who developed such except black mesa and combine? (lets supose for a sec that they can modify it to take them to their home world instead of to the orange portal on the other side of the room..)

maniac

On January 4, 2008 at 6:04 am

((((spoiler alert half life 1 + hl 2 ep2)))

yer i figured that, the game portal was made for 2 reasons testing how people would react towards the new gaming advantages using a portal gun and maybe to connect the storylines together

about g-man he came across evil to me because at the end of hl 1 he makes u either work for him or basically put u to a place that u will certainly die at
and how the vourtigants hav been helping the humans out so i assumed there was a reason y they were shieding u from the g-man plus hes also delivered the messages of unforeseen concequences at the start of hl 1 and the end of half life 2 ep 2 so thats where im coming from

ep 3 should take u close to the borealis im pretty sure the borealis is like another gateway to the combine world like one way travel plus how come we havnt they shown more combine enemies it cant be just hunters stalkers and those other telekinetic beings

HL3

On January 5, 2008 at 9:42 pm

well you dont know me but listen. its in the boreialis ,the portal gun,cause like kost said they were fighting for funding,they are linked games,they wanted to see to see what it did to troops like humans, and the borealis wanted to give it to someone , maybe the combine because they were after those people in the arctic base!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Also why are the combine in the borealis?????????????????? O and i think G-man is Gordon Freeman from the future with some teleporter and something that stops in some sort of place that alows him for whoever he whants to be able to see or hear him and the corperation is run by people from the future from a world ruled by the combine and G-man is using Gordon and Alex to stop the combine and so that the combine doesnt rule the world. And the Vortighnat thing, they are only helping because they did something to upset the combine and are likey already rebels but they know something i think they whant to even the odds because G-man is up to somrthig really really really big so they sheilded Gordon.Or another thing is that you wake up outside Black Mesa with Alex and they to Citedel One were their leaders are and probably ralling for one ****** assault but your there to stop them and are there to out of Earth once and for all,srry but final idea is thatyou go on a search to find G-man and find out who he really is but you p*** him of and everything turns to HE** he screws your weapons and your HEV suit and sends you to the borealis!

kost

On January 6, 2008 at 3:28 pm

**spoiler**
As g-man says in his scene in ep2 – “there was a time when the vourtigants’ expirience of humans was a crowbar coming at them..” – so you beat them around in hl1 and suddenly in hl2 they help you? have they evolved that much in the 3-4 years you haven’t been around?

As for g-man himself – he seems to just be someone’s employee doing his work.. nothing evil.. also he warned eli *not to run the portal test back in black mesa* so maybe he tried to prevent all this? + in hl2 g-man saved the human race – if gordon wouldn’t have been sent in by him i dont know if they would survive.. i think the combine would just finish em off..

and notice that the vourtigants, g-man and advisors all use the same kind of powers… what do you think about that guys?

chard

On January 6, 2008 at 3:36 pm

the vortigons our our friends now because of at the end of hl1 when you kill the big guy (forget tis name but tis weird and starts with n)you free the vortigons from the slavery the big guy had over them. if you listen to the vortigons in hl2 they will comment on the event.

Most likely gordon is dreaming it all up in his head after the resononce cascade,it knocked him unconcious and his brain wont except it and makes a scenario for him, and his subconcious takes form in Gman, its very obvious to me. but i have one more theory Gman is actaully death Incanate, it makes sense and explains his powers to stop time and travel from one dimension to another, it might also explain how he trapped gordon in another dimension for twenty years

This may be a noob question but where did the name “G-Man” come from. As far as I know he has never been directly addressed in any of the games. Is this a name the hl community came up with in order to talk about him without referring to him as “the man in the black suit with the briefcase” or did it come from some kind of naming convention used by Valve to name nameless characters? ie. A-Man B-Man C-Man…

chard

On January 10, 2008 at 8:12 am

that is exactly;y what i just thought of. if i remember correctly the name gman was first used by the community and then valve adopted the name latter on. and he has a blue suit :twisted:

The half life series is one of the best and most epic :neutral:

On January 13, 2008 at 9:18 pm

:roll: To those who think that Episode 3 will take yu to another city…Cant you remember the last 2 chapters of Episode 2! Its obvious that Gordon and Alyx go after Dr. Mossman in the Artic, to the belive to be lost “Borealis” by Aperature Sciences who were in kind of a enemy with Black Mesa. Even though we see the death of a character at the end of Episode 2, its proven that they will be going by helicopter to the “Borealis” in the arctic.

SkinnyNinja420

On January 14, 2008 at 12:28 am

Well, Raboot is an idiot as we all know at this point. And I do believe I heard something about the Borealis being in the Arctic, I think Eli said that the chic (I forget her name, she ed you over in HL2) went to the Arctic, hence she found the Borealis there.

Secondly here’s my theory…. I think the HL2 Episodes are about liberating Earth and keeping the combine from coming back. I think if they do make HL3 they would most likely send Gordon to the Galaxy the Combine are located to destroy them before they destroy any other civilized worlds, or something along those lines. My theory is not based on facts, it’s just a gut feeling I have and it would fit the story very well. What better way to stop the Combine then to just obliterate their asses.

I do hope HL2:E3 will include the Portal gun, but I highly doubt it. I never played the HL2 episodes until I bought the Orange Box for my 360. The only reason I played HL2 is because I rented it for the original X-Box after they released the emulator to play it on the 360… I never had the $$$ to spend on upgrading my PC, so I’m a console player.

Portal was amazing, I’ve beaten it many times. Team Fortress 2 was well worth the wait, better than Halo 3 in my opinion. And every HL game is just bomb. The only HL game I didn’t play was HL: Blue Shift.

I am so Stoked for HL2:E3….. God Damn Valve and their backed release dates. Anyone know of a release for HL2:E3? I heard on gamespot.com somewhere that it was scheduled for X-mas of 2007, but it was never released.

If you look on the posts up you’ll see the guys were talking of a release date on HL2 Ep3 i believe it was around April-June,i do believe the portal gun will appear in EP3 don’t you remember that Chell (the chick in Portal) was exploded,she and GLaDOS (the artificial intelligence computer from Portal) and ended in the main entry of Aperture Science i believe there was a forest there i saw some trees,but whats remarkable is that the trees were the same as those in the EP2 in White Forest so Chell probably will help Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance on the borealis

PS: I do believe that Adrian Shephard will return someday (A.Shephard HECU MARINE from Opposing Force) he’s my favourite character and some other 1000000 player’s :razz: ….it’s going to be a hell of a action :)

IDK man. I was listening to the commentary of Portal and I think I remember someone saying “Portal takes place in the Half-Life time line. When Black Mesa incident was happening is around the time of Portal”. And one another note. Why would Glad0s mention Black Mesa. In the HL2 time line Black Mesa isn’t around anymore. All the scientists banded together to help fight the combine. If you really think about it, it makes sense.

I’m not certain but I do believe they said that. What I’m hoping is that Chell, Glad0s, and the Portal gun somehow made their way onto the Borealis. I do imagine Glad0s is probably a big reason why the Borealis teleported to the arctic.

And I think Chell died. Cause the camera was the same when you’d die. I might sound like an idiot saying that, but being drunk helps things make sense.

I maybe wrong, but until E3 comes out we’ll never know. But if I am wrong I’ll come back to admit it :p

Yes you are actually right SkinnyNinja420 about Portal yes it happens in the Half-Life 2 time line and you are wrong Chell didn’t die she just passed out,i hope she isn’t dead i think she’s going to wake up the combine will try to catch her she will be surrounded by combine troops in a building near the base of the rebels she will escape using her weapon known as the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (or the Portal Gun) the rebels will find her eventually and doctor Kleiner and Dr.Magnuson will send her to help Gordon and Alyx on Borealis (ITS A CHANCE THIS WILL EVENTUALLY HAPPEN) …. :cool:

CMB.OwT says: Portal yes it happens in the Half-Life 2 time line

You got that part wrong man. I was talking about someone mentioning that Portal takes places around the time of the Black Mesa Incident. Not HL2, but the Original Half-Life.

And I’m still confused on where the name “Chell” came from. I never heard or happen to see anything about your characters name. Would this happen to be like the G-man? Where people just started calling him the G-man and it kind of stuck.

I do hope she survives, but there’s a chance she won’t. Or, since she is an android maybe there are other clones (replicas) of here and are being used for tests aboard the Borealis?

hey everyone has some great theories
chell was a releases name from valve and if u go look through the internet ull find articules stating that she is a major role for the half life series like shes like gordan freeman but at the aperture labs and she also does not talk plus either gman is gordans father or he is a guardian of some sort oh and b4 i forget in hl2 theres a cross on a pic of a science team photo where u see urself but someone ur missing whos that?

Gordon Freeman

On January 14, 2008 at 8:51 pm

Well I think Half-Life2 was a good game but episode was a good game even though it was short but HH2 E2 was very good but E3 will go though the roof + I heard that Valve is going to put E3 in the HD world SWEET :) But wait I missed someone WHERE’S BARNEY??!! Barney was not in HH2 E2 and whys that? I have no idea but they better show him in E3 because if they don’t then what happened to him? Maybe he will be with Mossman but who knows but I just hope that they just put Barney in E3 or I’ll be pissed as H311! :evil:

I’m pretty sure the scientist who was crossed out was Dr.Breen. Afterall he did betray them.

On January 15, 2008 at 3:47 am

he G-Man says that he has been impressed by Shephard’s ability to “adapt and survive against all odds” in the Black Mesa facility, and comments that these are traits which remind him of himself.This is what the G-Man said at the end of Opposing Force in that Ospring to Corporal Adrian Shephard (HECU MARINE) this is very important because it might actually be him in that crossed picture or it might be Breen.You are actually right SkinnyNinja420 i got it wrong i wanted to say that Portal is in the Half-Life 2 time line.The whereabouts of Barney Calhoun are actually unknown at the moment but logically he wasn’t in White Forest than actually he might be on the Borealis with Judith Mossman sent by Dr.Kleiner to stay and protect the Borealis with Judith Mossman BUT i repeat there is a large BUT IF HE DIDN’T MAKE IT EVEN TO WHITE FOREST in EP 1 ending your train got very damaged, maybe he’s train was damaged too..and he died with the rest of the rebels but VALVE must say something if that’s true let’s see in E 3.. :shock:

On January 15, 2008 at 5:26 am

it seems that Alyx Vance do exists in real life i was researching this and i found out that Valve asked Jamil Mullen to lend her beauty for the game,there is a model for Barney Calhoun too for Breen too,but i don’t know if Jamil Mullen is in the picture i’m going to show you http://www.pdsys.org/blog_images/hl2raisingthebar1223mt.jpg :P

In the picture in HL2 (also seen in Ep. 2) you can see Gordon Freeman, Dr. Kleiner, G-Man, Dr.Breen and some others not named. The one crossed out i do not know who is, but it may be someone you meet later in the series. I think Hl2 is an excellent game, ep. 1 is a bit short… Ep. 2 is superb! Beats all other games.

The Hunters in episode 2 were at first so annoying to kill, they took almost half of my shotgun ammo. But then when I got the car I just ran them over and they became a little too easy to kill. It was funny though running them over, they were actually weaker than expected.

CMB.OwT

On January 18, 2008 at 7:11 pm

Waqman they weren’t actually weaker than expected as you said but man they got hit by a car..how much pain do you think they could feel :) ..I’m unhappy because we didn’t get to kill a Combine Advisor i heard rummors that in E3 we will get this chance..!! :shock: :cool:

SkinnyNinja420

On January 18, 2008 at 9:48 pm

I never tried running them over with the car. I’ll have to remember that. I was pissed during the final battle. I couldn’t find any ammo and ended up shooting hunters and striders with my magnum and my cross bow. It did have a deep feeling of satisfaction when you shot a bomb with the magnum though.

And if you listen to the Commentary of HL2:E1 you’ll hear that you will definetly fight The Advisers, I think they mention it when your in the Adviser room.

SkinnyNinja420

On January 19, 2008 at 2:24 pm

Well, throughout the last level, I pretty much abandoned my car. I only used it to A: get to the striders faster or B: Run and grab some bombs.

Plus, it was alot more challenging when you didn’t run them over. And Glad0s killed them all man. Why else would no one be there? Plus, since Glad0s went ape , they probably called it a loss and sealed that part of the compound… Like some certain people did with a certain project in F.E.A.R.

Who knows. But I doubt they’ll go into that with HL2:E3… Some things are better left to the imagination. Like the G-man.

I heard the G-man is to symbolize the game designers at Valve. At first they controlled you. And now with the expansive environments, intelligent NPCs, and etc… they are loosing control of the gamer. Especially how he got irritated in HL2:E2. IDK where I heard it, but I know it came from Valve. It’s what he’s supposed to symbolize, so it still doesn’t explain who he is and where he came from.

CMB.OwT

On January 19, 2008 at 4:28 pm

Look SkinnyNinja420 there are a lot of things that we still don’t know but 1.Valve must tell us what happened to Aperture Science Laboratories all the employees there are missing because GLaDOS went berserk and wipped out all of them i saw this in a forum before you battle GLaDOS and destroy her eyes,every eye had a different character it was a phone in case GLaDOS went super GOD LIKE and a desk where a employee stood and watched GLaDOS carefully but it seems she 1) killed them all 2)they sealed that part of Aperture Science Laboratories but she indeed killed them i think you can see a lot of writing on the walls and cans of beans and water :neutral: .They must have a explanation for the G-Man as well they just can’t end the story without knowing who the G-Man is and whats his role in the Half-Life Time Line (actually they make good money out of this game and will tell us who the G-Man really is later in the game possibly Half-Life 3 episode 3 ?? who knows but they must do this if they don’t they won’t have any fans and no one will buy the games no more.. :wink: :shock:

On January 19, 2008 at 6:36 pm

LOL, I also listened to the Commentary about the “Red Phone”. And I didn’t mean we wouldn’t know. I know for a fact HL2:E3 will tell more of the G-man. Valve said so themselves. So don’t get too defensive. I was just saying that even if they never tuched base on where everyone went, it wouldn’t bother me.

They may wait until Portal 2 to explain what happened at Aperture, but it might also be HL3:E3 that explains it. If they do it in E3, Alyx will probably just run across some files on the Borealis and tell you about what they were working on or something.

But man…. I hate speculating on E3, I just wish they would hurry up and release it already! I’m ready to kick some combine ass.

Ah…the Borealis….something that almost became part of Half-Life 2 period.

But still, given AS, it’s possible there are survivors if they traveled not only space, but time and space. Otherwise no.

If Portal 2 is released i think it will continue from that point were you blew GLaDOS up,and you actually ended in the Half-Life Time Line isn’t that weird i think the Combine will chase Chell and Chell will again escape by using the portal gun,and will eventually travel to the Borealis to help Gordon and Alyx and everyone else….The trees in the end were you landed were exactly like the ones in White Forest :shock: i think and you crashed at the very entry of Aperture Science Laboratories :shock:

In Portal, before you start actually fighting GLadOs, one of her eyes falls out. You throw it into the dicintegrator (the furnace thingy) and she tells you that it was her morality part. It was placed in her to prevent her from flooding the Aperture Science center with deadly gas, and now she will start flooding the Aperture Science center with gas again :cool:

good point that maybe happened a long time ago thats maybe why the Aperture Science Staff are probably dead most of them but WHERE ARE THE CORPSES?? i mean the bones they aren’t all dead i think they had the Borealis Cargo Ship too :razz: remember?? in E3 will probably see what happened to them or in Portal 2 :?: :?: :!: :!:

SkinnyNinja420

On January 20, 2008 at 7:04 pm

Alright I want to add a few details I thought of to my Theory

“I think the HL2 Episodes are about liberating Earth and keeping the combine from coming back. I think if they do make HL3 they would most likely send Gordon to the Galaxy the Combine are located to destroy them before they destroy any other civilized worlds, or something along those lines. My theory is not based on facts, it’s just a gut feeling I have and it would fit the story very well. What better way to stop the Combine then to just obliterate their asses.”

Now, they said they will continue with the HL universe but Gordon won’t always be apart of it. So here’s my new thoughts. In HL2:E3 Gordon and Alyxx with stop the combine from returning to Earth and that’s the end for Gordon. So if they make HL3 I’d like to see the G-man send Sheppard to the Combines universe. It will take Gordon out of the story and bring back our favorite man.

Like I said, my theories aren’t based on facts. That’s why they are THEORIES. It’s pure speculation.

Who is Shephard? That guy from Stargate Atlantis xD?

Maybe the survivors from Apperture science innstalled the morality part, and left some labs rats (or as you call it, humans) for her to play with, as a test fir the morality part. It didn’t work as well as they thought so they left bith the Borealis :D

it indeed has to do with Half-Life because the G-Man put him in stasis in that Ospring (army helicopter transport)….and he must show up at any moment from time to time to follow the Half-Life Time Line.A.Shephard is my favourite character..he’s part of GEARBOX creation i think so VALVE must again work with GEARBOX to lend them A.Shephard say if i am wrong..?? :?: :!: :?: :!:

i was playing half life 2 in the ps3 again and i noticed that when u appear in the train at the start and when alyx transports to her dad u get that grey weird effect could this be linked in some way or just some cool effects for the game plus i think i said this b4 there properly wont be a portal 2 they will just tie it in with the half life series portal was to test the new portal gun for gaming anyway updated graphics and barney to come back it will be all good

Leave that kind of about the logest sentence ever seen and ask yourselves if A.Shephard will return in E3 or later i mean i saw on a forum that at the end of Portal if you are careful you see on the computers some letters it might be an anagram i think it is an anagram “ASDREHNIP” – i think it means – Adrian Shephard if you put the letters together..:D a little big HINT from Valve i think.. :!: :!: :?: :?:

I love Half Life :mrgreen: ; i look for new posts about it every chance i get. I wonder if HL2 Ep 3 could start any better than the first ep. which gave me flashbacks to HL1.

SkinnyNinja420

On January 22, 2008 at 8:45 pm

Valve sure loves to include mind s into their games. But my friend found out the same thing, but when he researched it on some anagram site (I forgot the name, I’ll link it sometime) he got like 300 + results from it. It could be a little joke to mislead people. But you could be right. I hope you are, but I doubt it.

I honestly think Valve puts these little mind s in the game so they can sit back and laugh at our speculation of what it means. I would do the same if I were some big shot game designer. It’s kind of funny if you think of it that way. But it is very interesting.

On January 23, 2008 at 5:17 am

I wonder what happened to Barney Calhoun he didn’t show up in E2 at the rebel base..he could be in the Arctic with Judith Mossman i think..Did you know that the action and time-line in Portal is actually when Freeman is kept in stasis by the G-man :shock: it’s like at the end of the first Half-Life “when the portal storms accour”

SkinnyNinja420

On January 23, 2008 at 7:10 am

Well, IDK about the exact time line, but they did say the HL1 time line, so you’r probably right.

But they are picking our brains and I love it.

And Tataru, the G-man is helping in the best way he can. By releasing Gordon Freeman. Remember “The right person at the wrong place can make all the difference in the world”. If the G-man didn’t bring Gordon out of stasis and into City 17 then all the rebels would all be turned into Stalkers or killed.

I myself love the G-man. Is he good? Not really. So he’s Evil? No… I myself think he’s neutral. In my opinion, I think he’s just leveling out the playing field so each side can have a fighting chance. But as always, that’s my opinion, it’s not based on facts. It’s just what I think.

And Barney probably is in the Arctic with Dr.Mossman. I never really cared about him. He was never a really in-depth character. In HL1 he’s just a security guard with unlimited Ammo and can unlock certain doors. In HL2 he’s just an undercover combine who helps you get to Eli and gives you the crowbar.

In HL2:E1, he’s they guy who says “Save all these people while I masturbate in the train” lol

I for one am more interested in knowing where all of the other Combine Species went to after HL1. And A.Shephard.

hmmm Skinny i wonder if the G-Man isn’t a rebel or maybe a ex-HECU soldier remember what he said to A.Shephard in that Ospring in the end of the game “You remind me of myself,a man who adapts and survives against all odds” this is very important indeed..Whats really disturbing is that we actually never saw his face because of his gas mask he might be anyone.Lol i never heard him say (Barney Calhoun) “save these people while i masturbate in the train” :grin: .Its so troublesome,we have to find out a lot of things(who is the G-man,where is A.Shephard,What happened to Chell,Is GLaDOS still alive,what happened to that really cool Kleiner’s headcrab Lamaar.) and many many more they just can’t end the Half-Life Time Line with just E3.So relax and chill my friends we will play again soon. :shock: :razz:

SkinnyNinja420

On January 24, 2008 at 6:47 pm

brett…. There is no HL movie at the moment. VAlve has said it in many interviews. The reason is because every script they’ve read is utter . So until some screen writer makes a good script out of the video game, then there will be no HL movie.

I’m glad Valve has the balls to say “This Script Sucks” and refuse to do the movie. I wish some other games would have done that… Doom, Bloodrayne, Street Fighter, and etc….

The only good Video Game Movies are Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Resident Evil doesn’t follow the game story to a point, they decided to do their own thing and it turned out very cool. And Silent Hill was just like the game, except the main character isn’t the girls father, it’s now her mother.

Anyone notice how most movie remakes or Game to Movies happen to change the main character/hero from a man to a woman? It’s happened in Silent Hill, The Hitcher, and etc… And also, what’s with all the damned remakes and movie versions of old shows? The shows were crappy when they were popular so why revive them. And why does disney do a Live Action movie of every mediocre Hanna Barbara Cartoon?

brett

On January 25, 2008 at 12:13 am

I herd somewhere that Alyx will be a playable charater in epi. 3, does anyone know if this is true? And about the movie, I agree, its a good thing that Valve belives in quality over quantity.

I read everything i played all valve games and i read your all notes some of them are wrong about the storyline i think you are WRONG the next episode is going to be in arctic in ship BOLIARIS .In HL1 Gordon Freeman did not had a choice he could choose to fight in the battle he couldnt win or he could choose to work for Gman ,acording to the story he chose to work for the Gman I chose the fight for the first time and some monsters appeared on the screen and it went black white books read Subject :terminaded contract declined .so i think .the Gman is a bad guy a pusher he saved Alyx but now hes using her .HE IS A SON OF A BICH thats what i think Valve rocks I love Ravenholm .Annabelle is my favorite weapon (father gregorys weapon)

On January 25, 2008 at 3:05 pm

Alyx will probably be a playable character after E3.In E3 you still get to play with Gordon Freeman after E3 will see,but i know we are going to see some grand fireworks at the end of E3 (Typical for Valve-the end leaves you with your mouth open).G-Man is Valve’s main ENIGMA.After they decide to make a hundred Half-Life Episodes or series that are official and belong to the Half-Life Universe and Time-Line its fine with me,we will know who G-Man really is,only that time will tell us everything,be patient and wait untill further progress…. :razz: :smile:

Here’s another question that makes my mind “blast”.Where did they (Valve) put Doctor Rosemberg from Half-Life BlueShift after all he escaped with Barney Calhoun in that jeep with 2 other fellow scientists (one of them has a name, Rosenberg called him to see Barney when he was all green like).I seriously believe they will appear later in the game (at least Dr.Rosenberg and that black scientist that has a name). They are like Dr.Magnuson!!..Who really thought that scientist from Half-Life really did make it with that casserole accident..

Well if you read this comment I LOVED STILL ALIVE!!!! It is the best song I have ever heard. Have you heard the J.C. Mix of Still Alive?

breet

On January 26, 2008 at 11:19 pm

My point about Alyx as a playable charater in epi.3 is that if Grodon was suport (like Alyx in previous epi.) than Valve could show the player more of Gordons personality, and make it easer to make a movie. I personaly don’t like this idea, that is just what I heard. The players thoughts thrue Grodon’s eyes is what makes this game, for me anyway. I don’t want Valve to tell me who Gordon Freeman is. But its there game, not mine.

Wolfe

On January 27, 2008 at 12:03 am

I just hope they will bring back Adrian Shephard, from Opposing Force. He’s been inside that V-22 Osprey that G-man put him in, for a along time now.

It would be good if like a portal rift opened during the 7 hour war, and you got to play as Adrian Shephard during the 7 hour war. That would e things up a bit, depending what Episode 3 turns out like.

Or mabey even playing a Chell that would be cool. i just think Freeman needs a brake for a bit

kost

On January 27, 2008 at 4:58 am

I don’t realy want to list all my sources
but most likely 3 things will happen: (almost 100% certain)

1) Freeman dies at the end of Ep3
2) There will be a game where you play as Alex. (posibly even HL3)
3) The current storyline maybe ends at Ep3, but Half Life Universe will live on long (kind as long as there is Valve :wink: )

CMB.OwT

On January 27, 2008 at 5:40 am

Kost maybe we’ll get to play with Alyx without Valve killing Freeman,that’s much better so we can find out what’s Gordon’s voice like :lol: .The story will never end untill all the facts are CLOSED.

-They have to bring back Corporal Adrian Shephard (last time we saw him he was with the G-Man in that V-22 Osprey “Currently DETAINED”.

-They have to bring back Shell now!

-They have to tell us more about Aperture Science Laboratories

-They have to tell us if GLaDOS is still alive !!

-They have to tell us where is Barney Calhoun!(with this character we will get to play later in the Half-Life Universe i’m sure of this!)

-Where are Doctor Rosenberg,with his two fellow scientists Simmons and Dr.Walter Bennet,they escaped back in Blueshift with Calhoun in that jeep but where are they now!

-They have to tell us who is the G-Man ! (is he good,is he evil,who is he working for,and what’s his role further in the game)

-Did Father Gregory died back in Ravenholm !! OR NOT !!

-What’s with the BlackOPS back in Opposing Force !!

-What’s with BlackMesa (in Half-Life 2 BlackMesa still existed,BlackMesa East at least !!

-Did you know that Aperture is a company that really exists ?

-Did you know that BlackMesa exists?

-Did you know there really is a HECU special unit ! TOP SECRET OFCOURSE

-Did you know that there really is a marine named Adrian Shephard who is actually “RETIRED”.

I am not joking all this things are for real,and the part with BlackMesa i saw a picture with the base from google i had it in my pc a long time ago about 3 years and i can’t find it anymore.

It’s possible i mean think of it the USA has UFO’s,theyre working with alliens and all that ,i mean why can’t they have a base of research with teleportation and all that we’re things got messy and they had to clean up ! with HECU marines and later BlackOPS. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE !! ANYTHING

SkinnyNinja420

On January 27, 2008 at 9:00 am

I doubt we’ll play as Alyx, it just doesn’t make much sense. If Gordon does die there will most likely be the return of Adrian. There are too many other possible characters to play as already without adding Alyx into the mix. Adrian, Barney, and Chell just to name a few.

And CMB…. Dude, Glad0s is still alive. That’s the whole point to the song at the end of Portal. There’s no if’s, and’s, or but’s about it. She is still alive. Seriously, why would Valve make a song where Glad0s sings about being “Still Alive” if they killed her off?

that guy Tataru

On January 27, 2008 at 11:28 am

maybe the song “still alive” was used because chell didn’t died,you know?

SkinnyNinja420

On January 27, 2008 at 11:46 am

She Probably is, but then why would Glad0s sing it? Anyways, if the song isn’t enough for you to believe Glad0s is still alive, then remember the cake room. All the eye things light up. Maybe because Glad0s at the last minute transfered her program to back up bots.

There’s a 90% chance Chell is still alive.

There’s also a 99.9% chance Glad0s is still alive.

About you playing HL1 in HL2 Graphics is real because i read somewhere that somebody was making a mod for HL2 called Black Mesa or something like that, google it. I think you would find it, i seen a trailer and it looks great and i’m looking foward to it….
i think they said that only ppl that had HL2 or CS source ca play the mod

chard

On January 30, 2008 at 8:57 am

ya ive seen the mod but ive been watching it off and on for like 3 years now and still no release. so its like a true hl game. you have to wait forever but when it comes its amazing.

I love the BlackOPS they did quite a good job.They didn’t even scream when hit by bullets those man were actually trained better and harder than the HECU MARINE PLATOONS.They had women too,not to mention a certain nuclear bomb meant to blow up the entire facility (BlackMesa that is!) i believe the nuclear bomb was referred to as “The Black Package”.I’m really sorry that we don’t battle the HECU or the BlackOPS no more.. :cry: :cry: .Besides Adrian Shephard the HECU and the BlackOPS still exist in the Half-Life Time Line and Universe i think if they are still alive they are rebels for certain or they have secret millitary bases.Which wait to destroy the combine when the time comes..And that time came ! Its about freaking time for corporal Adrian Shephard to make his appearance,i’m going to be pretty pissed if they don’t put him in the game faster.. :mad:

And Breet, it’s a site for s and giggle made by Valve. In one of the survivors dens on Portal, you’ll see a User name and a password on the wall. You login with that and it tells you the history of Aperture Science and other funny things.

Hey everybody, this is my first time posting something on here. I have an interesting thing to share you, if ya’ll didnt know. Has anybody seen Battlestar Gallictica Razor or the last season of Battlestar? If so, this actress (Michelle Forbes) who plays the Admiral chick who is in control of the Pegasus or the Captain I guess. Well, she is the person who does the voice for Dr. Judith Mossman in the Half Life 2 series. Pretty cool ay!!! And she does kinda look a lot like Dr. Judith…IMO.

Blacksword

On February 2, 2008 at 2:12 pm

Hello there my fellow Half-Life fans!

First off let me remind you (if you don’t already know) that Valve have done a stupendous job of Half-life :p. Oddly enough my… “Addiction” started with a brief encounter with Half-Life 2, a few months after its release… since then i have played ALL of the games (on PC) bar Half-Life: Blue-Shift, Which i haven’t been able to get my hands on. :cry: Now to answer a question asked before (go up about 4 pages of posts to find it :p) The G-Man got his name from the name of his model, which some one ripped out of Half-Life 1, not sure if anyone noticed, in the commentary, they always refer to him as THE G-Man, thus i think “G-Man” is not his real name. Also to address his allegiance, that falls into a very grey area. Because it was G-Man that GAVE the crystal to Eli, the same crystal that caused the resonance cascade. The final thing i have to say is… all you people saying that Episodes 1-3 are Half-Life 3, i think not. First, at the end of Half-Life 1, there is NO indication, NONE what-so-ever of a sequel (Because Gordon is taken by The G-Man, and according to Opposing Force, Black Mesa is nuked, discounting Half-Life 2, ie before its release, the alien invasion was only in Black Mesa) but then, out of the blue, Valve brings out Half-Life 2. Second, as someone has clearly said before, if they where Half-Life 3, they would be named Half-Life 3: Episode 1,2,3. Thirdly (Personal opinion) even though Half-Life: OP and BS where made by GEARBOX(mostly) they where still approved (story-line and all) by Valve, and i think Valve liked the idea expansions that expand on the story-line they decided to do the same them-selves, but with out changing main characters.
Finally, in my personal opinion there is a high probability of a Half-Life 3, just don’t expect it soon. :p

breet

On February 2, 2008 at 3:23 pm

In HL1, at the very end of the game G-man says “I will see you up ahead”, that sounds alot like an opener to a sequel to me?

breet

On February 2, 2008 at 4:03 pm

SkinnyNinja420

On February 2, 2008 at 7:15 pm

Blacksword, the episodes are Half-Life 3 according to Valve. They’ve said it themselves.

And they would have named the Episodes Half-Life 3 but they felt HL2:E was more convenient.

The original name was “Aftermath” but they went went Half-Live 2: Episode deal.

If you don’t believe just do some google research. They’ve said it in at least two interviews.

SkinnyNinja420

On February 3, 2008 at 1:30 am

Well, I was playing HL2:E2 today and I just remembered something. Half-Life has one big ass flaw. The driving! I ing hate driving! Would it have been so hard to make the driving controls work? I hate it so much, at least on the 360.

All of your driving consists of two buttons, one is for the brake (A) and the other is boost (LB). WTF Valve!?! Why do I point straight with the right analog stick and go forward? Would it have been so hard to make the Right trigger an accelerator button and the Left Trigger a brake?

IDK about you guys but I just remembered why the last mission on HL2:E2 is a . The driving controls suck more than Ava Divine (Pornstar).

I hope in the future HL games or episodes that they fix this problem. It’s in HL2 and HL2:E2! It’s the only downfall to the game.

Yea… I just finished HL2 EP2 It was grate, but I a bit miss larger battles with combines from HL2 Ep1 Chapter deployment ambushes, I loved jail level in EP1 . I hope EP3 will be soon. How I understand I really don’t still understand is EP3 really HL3 or HL2 (not aftermath)EP3 or HL3-HL2,EP1,EP2=HL2,Ep2+1EP
Whatever i think a big part of next HL will be on that Borealis ship in very cold place. And that might mean new creatures ( I assume that headcrabs like more warm weather and so on earth do also all bugs) I really would like a bit more of spec op war there. Peaking around corners is one thing what I miss a lot in HL series.

CAN’T WAIT FOR EP 3, we see “Apature science” logos all over the ship where ep 3 will be based, will we see GLaDOS? Will we see Chell? Will we see a portal gun? WILL WE SEE CAKE??

ps, heard that if there is “Portal 2″ it will greater tie the connections between Black Mesa and Apature. There might even be a cross over between somewhere in ep 3 and portal 2 (Just a rumor, any one from Valve can clear that up for me if you’d like to.)

pps could the relationship or sexual references between Alyx and Gordon be ANY MORE HINTED AT? Come on this is getting painful, mind you, i would date Alyx if I had the chance.

The Alex

On February 7, 2008 at 12:08 am

I think the reason they waited so long to release episode 2 was the fact that it gave away secrets conecting the half-life story ark with that of portal, so they decided to release them together. You know the “Borialis”.

ps I think that the lady in portal MIGHT be Alyx’s mom? That would explain the reason Elie was upset when he heard about the Borialis? Just a theory.

Isher

On February 7, 2008 at 11:48 pm

If you please, everyone. I have just finished reading all the input and my eyes are bleeding, but I feel I can add a little more to what everyone has said. While HL1, Opposing Force, Blue Shift, HL2, HL2, ep.1, and HL2, ep.2, and Lost Coast have all been referenced and HL2, ep.3 has been fantasized about, I have not seen any reference to “Redemption” which is a shortish but very satisfying episode of the Half-Life series which can be found in the “Half-Life Counter Strike” offering which, if I recall correctly, came out between Opposing Force and Blue Shift. This game, if you have not played it, will provide a sustaining “fix” until episode 3 is put on the market plus it gives us a bit more of a feel for who the G-man is and what some of his personal temperament is all about. Indeed, I so disliked the G-man at this point in the series that I sent an e-mail to the designers begging them to please make a game where my character (either Gordon or Adrian) could apply my hands or the crowbar to his person. Being an old dude (64 and counting), I am nonetheless a Half-Life devotee as attested to by the fact that I have “Still Alive” on my i-pod shuffle; and I would very much like to see a resolution to this wonderful story before I shuffle off to the borderworlds.

Actually, games developers could create a great game based on the rise of The Project for A New American Century, and of the great war to eradicate such slime from our Planet. Cheney would make a great headcrab.

I suspect that the only thing harder to bear than the ending of our Half-Life saga would be for it not to end at all. Gordon Freeman, despite all that he has accomplished and endured, is not invulnerable to the vagaries of 21st century life. Remember all of those television series that we fell in love with, viewed the 13 episodes during the first season and then found out that the program was not to be renewed the next year? Is there a writers/programers strike in our near future? Could Valve be gobbled up by some corporation that only wants to produce games for 8 year old kids…………..? Ooooh…now I’ve gone and depressed myself. I suppose we could each just fantasize our own resolutions but that would NOT be the same as “going out” with the glock in our hand.

HALF-LIFE 2 EPISODE 3 – MAYBE SPOILER (MY GUESS)

1) Your still in the base, just after Ely Vance died Alyx is sad and tears slowly drop from her face

2) Everyone comes to see what happened (Dr.Magnuson,Dr.Kleiner etc.) after they talk a little the alarm starts,Combine troops are coming towards the base(The 2 Advisors spotted you thats why)

3)After a tiny battle, you leave with Alyx in the helicopter

4)I don’t know how, but the Combine or Tehnical Problems are the reason of the chopper’s crash in the Arctic of course..(Near The Borealis) etc..

5) A lot of action + New Arctic Monsters (1-2) maybe

6)Maybe Portal Gun + NPC Chell (or maybe Portal 2 that’s Chell’s place after all if we want to find out what happened after that crash)

7)Someone important dies,maybe you,maybe Judith Mossman,Alyx (can’t die)(Impossible my instincts tell me that we are going to play with her in Half-Life 3 or the next Half-Life Episode 4 or god damn it ! i don’t know !)

What ever it was Barney says he still has night mears about it. Aparently he is not an animal person, and will coment about that “cat” throughout the game. All this is leading me to believe that Barney is uncomphertable around cats. But maybe I am wrong.

Breet, Barney doesn’t hate cats. A cat was used in a test run of their teleporter. Obviously the cat died a gruesome death. They mentioned it before Alyx got into the teleporter and she was asking about the cat because she was scared.

Imagine trying to teleport a cat and something goes horribly wrong…. That’ll give you nightmares.

And also, Blueshift is old. Just download a torrent man. I’m so stoked for Black Mesa Source, HL:E3, and the remake of HL:Decay

I really wish Black Mesa Source would hurry up, that’d be a good filler for the wait for E3.

I just mentioned downloading a torrent because not everyone has steam and I’d imagine finding a copy of blueshift would be pretty hard.

Isn’t the a big boxset out that has HL1, Blueshift, Oposing Force, and a few others?

Well anyways, I have a connection into gaming news. He provides us with some really good info about upcoming games. That lucky bastard used to work at CheatCC so he knows people. Anyways, to my point…. I’ll ask him to keep his ear to the ground about HL2:E3 for me and if he finds anything out, you guys will be the second to know (The first will be the HL fans on my site).

I used to be into PC gaming alot, I’m a Team Fortress Vet. But PC gaming is really expensive nowadays and I can’t afford to build myself a decent PC right now. But I will be playing in the next few months on a PC, thanks to my friend who offered to build me a PC using his connections for discounts. It’s going to be such an awesome PC too, but it’s going to run me $3,000

And good torrent sites.. Hmmm, ISOhunt.com, Sumotorrent.com, and others. I would suggest just googling “Half-Life: Blueshift Torrent”. Then just check out the URLs for some of the reliable sites I just listed.

Thank you for providing the site for the “blue crowbar” picture. Legitimate preview of HL2-Ep3 or HL3 or not, this is a fine picture and would make a great poster. I surely would like to think it represents some future for the series as all the signs (including the wall graffiti reference to a song from “Oklahoma”) are in English and I’ve grown weary of all of the cyrillic references. The picture shows a city scene that I can more readily relate to my experiences. Bring on the Combine. I’m ready, ready, ready (with credit to Spongebob Squarepants)!

It can’t be HL2 E3..E3 is in Arctic and by the way they didn’t even started HL3 maybe they have story,plot but they don’t have the structure,The main subject is HL2 E3….!!!! By the way here is a question that keeps popping in my mind.Why they didn’t make a Black Ops OFFICIAL VALVE MOD.So you can see the story on how theyre main mission was to destroy BlackMesa by blowing up the facility.IN THE EYES OF A BLACK OPS MALE or FEMALE ASSASSIN.(Main Enemy would be HECU PLATOONS MARINES).You could see Adrian Shephard when he enters and saves that engineer,the doors closed and you couldn’t open them and you hear your team get killed.Not the hole team some Black-Ops Operators. THAT WOULD BE VERY COOL MY MIND KEEPS ON MOVING :) ON THE “BLACK-OPS”

On February 26, 2008 at 8:59 pm

In my ideal gaming world we would, indeed, see Adrian Shephard again. But would he come to us as an ally or an adversary? To what extent did the G-man manipulate Adrian whom we have to acknowledge was trying his best to kill Gordon Freeman. This challenges my “virtual sense of fair play” that Gordon would have to kill Adrian in order to survive. I would be very interested to know where in the games any male black ops were found. While I was usually too busy keeping my viscera inside my body cavity whenever I ran into them to spend time trying to sex them, the few I did look at closely appeared female.

About half life 3 the foroum suggest that they are making the 3rd half life series while making the episodes so they can get it to the gamers b4 its too late. if this is true ep3 will be the last episode in the gordan freeman campaign. i also bet half life 3 will be something like how chell got to aperture labs and what happened to aperture labs. any thoughts on this??

Personally, i think that obviously we will go to the borealis and MAYBE! JUST MAYBE! we will find a way to go back to black mesa before any of this disaster happened, and we will stop gordon from opening the portal to the combine homeworld, but like kupoff789x said, if the HL series ends, that would seriously suck :sad: But of course i am just thinking out loud. But i do have a huge feeling we will get our hands on some advisor bl00d!!!! We might also come across an arctic headcrab, possibly very furry or something, but we will deffinately find a new enemy in the game. Thus a new headcrab means a new zombie, obviously the body mutates (zombies hands are mutated, fast zombies are still alive with nothing but muscles and bones) so we will probably find a hairy zombie or a crippled and frozen zombie. Vortigaunts may not take place in this game like in EP1(in EP1 the only vortigaunt role was the beginning, saving your life) :smile: And to tide yourself until EP3 (Panaceya said it wont come out til may 29 2009) PLAY GARRYS MOD! u got combine alyx and everything! make the game yourself! thats what im gonna do. *completely off topic SORRY* anyway, another idea is that the woman in Portal will not be in EP3, because, in the Portal song “still alive” she says ‘maybe black mesa’ indicating that it is still intact, not over run by combine :grin: So I believe it is IMPOSSIBLE for her to appear in HL2 EP3. IF THIS POST WAS SERIOUSLY A WASTE OF BANDWIDTH IM SORRY, just spitting out ideas to u guys :twisted:

Isher

On February 28, 2008 at 12:15 pm

I will never forget my awe during the opening transit to the work site in HL1 while viewing the extent of Black Mesa. The scope and enormity of that facility had much the same effect as seeing the opening minutes of “Star Wars” when I first saw the film in a theater. BIG PLACE! So even though we saw the flash of nuke(s) in Opposing Force, I don’t find incredible the possibility that portions of Black Mesa were not destroyed. Not everyone could have transported out like Barney and his scientist companions did in Blue Shift, so we have to conclude that there were surviving structures and well as surviving personnel like Judith, Dr. Kleiner, Dr. Magnusson, and Dr. Vance. In fact, when we hop off our swamp boat for the last time in HL2, is not the facility where Judith greets us a part of the old Black Mesa? Please correct me if my thinking is not correct.

Isher

On February 28, 2008 at 10:53 pm

:oops: I just went back to HL2 and answered my own question. The facility where Gordon meets Judith Mossman is called “Black Mesa East”…the “East” part meaning, I imagine, that it is located in Europe. Additionally, Mossman says “…it’s not Black Mesa, but…”

the only problem i have ever had with half-life was the storyline gap between hl1 and hl2 because i want to know where the combine came from and what happened up to the point where Gordon was let off of the train car, but still the whole half-life series is the best game in the world hands down.

On February 29, 2008 at 1:38 pm

If you haven’t played “Redemption”, I recommend you get a copy. It certainly doesn’t answer all of your questions about the storyline gap, but it does provide some continuity for Gordon Freeman’s character (as well as for the G-man) between HL1 and HL2—plus you get to go back to the borderworlds.

As I see it, two variables will determine the longevity of Half-Life gaming: 1. How long the designers can hold their interest in doing a first-rate job with the project (we all know the story itself is rich enough to justify at least a dozen more episodes) and most importantly 2. Will the sales produce a profit sufficient to spur the company on. With the second point in mind, I never miss an opportunity to approach that person standing in the software aisle at Wal-Mart while they balance two different games in their hands. I pick up a copy of the Orange Box and say, “If you’d like a REALLY GOOD game…” :wink: :wink:

Nothing Half-Lifeish is off the topic. I envy you your “Barney struts his stuff” experience. I just wish there was an unplayed game (HL type) in my near future. Maybe I’ll take a quick runthrough of “Lost Coast” just to keep my trigger finger in shape.

I have been fascinated with the speech patterns of the G-man—his attenuation of some vowels and consonants—sort of the way one would expect a snake to speak if a snake would speak. Is it an attempt to command attention (an affectation), or the result of an imperfect hologram projection, or the limitations of android programming, or the effects of some NEUROLOGICAL DAMAGE! Oh right, y’all. I’m sure that I am the only one who has ever tried to put a crossbow bolt through his cranium whenever he appeared in the early games :grin:

CMB.OwT

On March 2, 2008 at 8:37 am

Isher man you can’t possibly believe he is a hologram or some NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEM suffered by the results of the Resonance Cascade it can’t be,he helped you a lot of times you,and Adrian Shephard if it weren’t G-Man Shephard’s life would have ended in that acid..G-Man’s power at the end of Half-Life 2 he teleported Gordon Freeman outside the Citadel…. :?: I got reasons to believe that the G-Man is on our side but i may be wrong….After All he is the all mighty “G-MAN”.I don’t know we will have to see in HL2 E3…. :shock: :shock: :idea: :idea:

Isher

On March 2, 2008 at 11:40 am

CMB.OwT

No, I don’t believe those things about the G-Man. They are, in good measure, humorous attempts to explain an interesting trait of the man which is otherwise not explained anywhere in the games. Much as if the G-Man had say, a lightning bolt scar on his forehead (apologies to Harry Potter), I would want to know if it was important to the story. What I do know is that my character has “walked through” him (like through a hologram) a time or two and that repeated attempts to do him a mischief have failed as bullets and energy blasts passed through him without effect. These facts, certainly could simply reflect programming problems. I remember in the early HL games, if my character, for example, whacked a comrade with the crowbar, the comrade would say something like “Back Off”. And if I whacked him again, he would try to kill me. Since the advent of HL2, this kind of “fragging” is no longer possible—a moot issue.

While I agree that the G-man has come to our rescue on occasion, I also acknowledge that he is the entity that put us in jeopardy to begin with. After all, those were mob type options he gave to Gordon in the first place—”I’ve got an offer you can’t refuse…”. I have to wonder, if Gordon broke his back (ending his usefulness) in a fall down some shaft, would the G-Man transport him to some Caribbean Isle to live out the rest of his life or leave him for the brain crabs to find. As you rightly say, I don’t know. We will have to see in HL2-E3.

CMB.OwT

On March 2, 2008 at 4:46 pm

Yes Isher i agree with you in what you say,but i also believe that i have the right answer for the last question you said : “I have to wonder, if Gordon broke his back (ending his usefulness) in a fall down some shaft, would the G-Man transport him to some Caribbean Isle to live out the rest of his life or leave him for the brain crabs to find. As you rightly say, I don’t know. We will have to see in HL2-E3.”

- I think your answer lies in Opposing Force,when you defeat the last boss the G-Man talks to you,he also blows BlackMesa up,but he also said that he could have let you die in the explosion but he may have some further use of you even thought his employers didn’t know about Adrian Shephard that let’s me believe that he’s also a good person “his one hell of a difficult mind”.

-He isn’t bad, “he didn’t put you in the wrong place at the right time” it was the so called DESTINY THINGY.

-He released you out of that stasis because if it weren’t that stasis that kept you young,he could have been too old to save City17 and the Human Race + the Vortigaunts (your the same age with Alyx and Alyx was a child when the Resonance Cascade occoured.

Isher

On March 2, 2008 at 11:24 pm

CMB.Owt
You make a fine argument (except maybe for the “Destiny Thingy” part. We may not get resolution to the ethical considerations surrounding the G-Man in this splendid story though I hope we do. I still think that it is important to know who his masters are and whether he is any more than any slave owner who uses people as tools (means) to his ends. I have a well developed mistrust for anyone who is as powerful as the G-Man appears to be but can’t (apparently) be stopped. I’m as anxious to resolve some of these questions as I am to see the future of Gordon, Alyx, Barney, Dr. Kleiner etal.—not to mention mankind on his home planet. I’m already filling up my change jar in anticipation of buying HL2-ep3.

A few days ago, I read several items of input from HL fans on another site and I was surprised and puzzled that many of the writers were militating against any further borderworld (Xen) excursions in the upcoming HL offerings. From the chilling taunts of “Just you aloooone” as Gordon begins his climb up through that ghastly alien facility until he confronts that “nasty baby” (Nihilanth) I have to deal with unremitting goose bumps—no matter how many times I have played the game—and my mind fires on all cylinders. For me, that is one of the very best sequences of any game I have ever played! Okay, now I will admit that all of that is a subjective assessment. However, looking down the line, either we (meaning Dr.s Magnusson, Kleiner, and Mossman) come up with a huge “cork” sufficient to plug up the passage from the hostile alien worlds permanently OR someone (Gordon, Adrian, Alyx, Barney) is going to be compelled to put some serious hurts on the aliens on their home turf. I, for one, would very much like to see the story progess to the point where we have reclaimed Earth and are able to destroy the monstrosities cities for a change. Is anyone else up for some payback? You know—maybe building a few McDonalds or Starbucks at strategic locations?

Don'tDrinkTheWater

On March 7, 2008 at 12:47 pm

Anyone hear abot any new HL 2 expantions yet? I just finished Ep 1 and 2 in the last 2 days, and let m tell you, I will do anything for episode 3. Anything. I have seen screenshots of the arctic, so im sure the heli goes up north and crashes somehow. Is there a trailer for EP 3 or anything like that out yet?? Does Gordon finally talk? Does Alyx tell Gordon she loves him??(Its amazing that Gordon doesnt say 1 word the entire Half Life series and picks up a babe). Anyways, I want Half Life now.
Cheers

You probably know as much about the pending arrival of HL2-Ep3 as any of the rest of us up to this point in time. I just check in here from time to time to see if anyone is going to offer us a bone to gnaw on while we wait. Lots of speculation so far but little in the way of authoritative fact. I don’t know if you have played all of the Half-Life series. If you haven’t, then playing them will give you small glimpses of the G-Man from time to time—always on the other side of the door (straightening his tie) or strolling along a catwalk—ever out of reach and untouchable, except for “Redemption” in which we get to see his petulant side. What the heck, if you completed Ep.1 and Ep.2 in two days, all you need is a break to let your eyes refocus and you can go back at it again.

If anyone gives a rip, I just went back to HL1 and checked out Gordon’s locker contents. I still have no idea what the relevance of the baby picture is, but I researched the book that is on one of the shelves. It is titled “The 37th Mandala” and represents an actual sci-fi novel written by one of the Valve designers. Hmmmmmmm.

Just returned from the site you listed. Lots to read there—and digest. Be warned, everyone. LOTS OF SPOILER INFO there which covers the games HL1, Opposing Force, Blue Shift and HL2. The author has made a commendable attempt to give a chronology for these games which necessitated the insertion of some speculation. I especially appreciated the representation of the statements that the Nihilanth made to Gordon during their confrontation. I never was able to clearly make those out during the game play—too busy running and gunning to pay close attention, I guess.

Half life geek.

On March 14, 2008 at 4:12 pm

Ok, if you are confused, ill tell you this, half life 2, episode 1 and 2 are the continuing of half life and half life 2. in episode 2, you see in chapter 7, you find the borillas. a ship that has like tons of information in it, that was lost for like many years, and some dident even know it was real, but arter alex’s dad dies you start out back in the hanger with alex and dog, and the helicopter is still there. so i gess when episode 3 gomes out you will be heading to the borillas to get back dr cliner and all the stuff she knows so you can finally get an upper edg on the combine and what they plan to do after you destroyed their portal with a rocket.

I’ve been thinking about what they might do for this release.

I believe when HL2: Episode 3 comes out there will be something like an Orange box 2 or something. In which it will include Portal 2, HL2: Episode 3, and probably some other games I can’t think of right now.

I cannot say anything about TF classic. Didn’t play it. But opposing force is a great game! That is not just a sucking stupid addon. It gives answers for some of half life story questions. Playing it is important if you want to know more about black mesa and everything around it. So I really recommend to play it!

Wtf clinton of valve your an idiot, i know where you got that information from, that site saying no theres not gonna be a half life 3 its gonna be episodes, let me tell you somthing, that site is bull crap, they have anounced episode 3 and they have also announced half life 3, theyre currently running a beta test for an engine called source 2, and besides even if i were valve i would make half life 3, half life 2 was a jack pot, episode one raked in more money, episode 2 everyone just loved, the orange box 5 games in 1 for $100, thousands upon thousands bought that, u would have more than enough for a half life 3

Well im going to guess that ep3 will start off in the helicopter reciving a transmission that white forest is under attack again and everyone there got boned but you and alyx who had escaped. An advisor spots you or maybe a combine helicopter and attacks your helicopter (really awesome if an advisor jumped on) and you guys crash than mossman and another rebel drag you and alyx to a secert hideout. Than DR…FREEEMANNNNNNNNNNN. Just my idea :lol: Also the cake cant be a lie i ate it! lol

Dieing to live

On March 24, 2008 at 9:16 pm

I think its going to be really hard to take down an adviser. In EP 2, he takes the dead soldier and twists him like Jenna Jameson. And they can pick up anything in the room and hold it there. I have a feeling that you cannot defeat these advisers, only te vertegonnes can, (those good aliens). Also, I think in either EP 3 or even HL 3, there will be Xen.(At the biggining on Opposing Force, helicopters get taken down by them.) And then the Combine and Xen will battle it out. I think that the G-Man controls the Xen aswell, since you travel to some distant planet or something. No portal gun in EP 3 or HL 3, maybe a new weapon like some kinda pet sender like in HL 2 with the ant lions.
gg, peace

brett

On March 25, 2008 at 12:01 pm

Xen is a “borderworld planet” on the edge of the universe, a sort of train station that the vortigons retreat to while running from the Combine (befor HL 1), along with other rouge space creatures: Headcrabs, Ant Lions and Barnicals… Then on the planet Xen the “portal storms” start to acur (the Black Mesa Incident), the vortigons see a opertunity to escape form the Combine or the “Universal Union”, so thay takeit…….bla,bla,bla.:lol:…CLICK ON THE LINK!!

On March 31, 2008 at 12:05 pm

HL2-E3 will probably have a powerful theme to it, i have a very large feeling that gordon will not only be assisted by alyx, but by groups of rebels and vortigaunts, assisting him in the final fight against the combine, but the combine are just the soldiers, we still have quite a few enemies to fight off, i do not know if in Hl2-E3 will be the last fight on the combine, but i have a feeling it will be an epic battle, cornering the combine somewhere, rebels charging in, the last fight. Thus if it is the last fight, the combine will be much less tactical, very conservative, and scared less, we were pawns at the begining, rising from pawns to bishops in less than a week, and now we have rose above this power, and defeated their right-hand man, surely we have shown them what we are capable of, and along with EP3 i am seriously considering the idea of a new half-life 2 mulitplayer, not half life 2 deathmatch, but a large tactical shooter with wide open maps and realistic gameplay, sides of combine and rebels. Back to the SP storyline:if we do destroy the once powerful combine forces to the rubble, we will no longer be viewed as rebels, but the superior race, such as the combine were viewed, order will be restored, and WE will be the ones in charge…

Mattseig3195

On March 31, 2008 at 12:11 pm

we will fight them to the ground, destroying their every last stronghold, we have proven ourselves capable, this is the time to fight, and the time to die, this battle will have a name also, such as “the uprising” or “last fight”, giving the people a small amount of momentum to realize what they are capable of, rebels will be known as soldiers, they will become tactical, we will see training grounds,children,and advances in science,technology,and battle enhancements

A sniper would be a nice addition to the series, but the x-bow is practicaly the same, just cant take out fast moving targets… As long as they dont bring the gravity factor to the crossbow, we are safe :wink:

On April 4, 2008 at 1:38 pm

gordon never spoke because valve wanted to add something different to the game and to make an effect on the gamers so that instead of gordon saying something the gamer could basically put their own words into the game so that if gordon said something the gamer didnt think “Hey thats not what ‘I’ would have said!”…

And hell yeah Valve release game Portal. I think that Portal was just introduction to the portal gun. I think that in ep3 there will appear portal gun. Maybe for Gordon… maybe for combine…

Oh and one more thing to KAYSJAYS – About that trailer… didn’t u know that all charaters from HL2 are real persons. Gordon face is took from a real man…

It would be more awesome if they’ll bring back Adrian Shephard + Chell (the chick from Portal) + Alyx Vance + Gordon Freeman = GODLY TEAM so they’ll up the Combine Once and for all,but then again if they do it the story will end and i’m pretty sure no one wants that to happen..It will be a good ideea if they bring back the Grunts from Half-Life but this time on our side,with new Concept art that’s for sure.. :shock: I just want to kill a Combine Advisor i want to blow his brains with the magnum or the shotgun or throw a grenade at his ass and blow it up :grin: :lol: ..But May 2009 the release date sucks,i hope they do release trailers sooner…. :mrgreen:

HLE 2 was awesome! I have to say that the epsiodes do create more of a cliffhanger, but a longer game would be awesome. but then again HLE 2 bouldn’t be so dramatic. I cant wait for the next one, except for the fact that it may mean the end of the curren story line. :cry:

There’s a very intresting site where you can read the whole Half-Life saga.
There’s a lots of explenations and things you might miss. Plus a few things that isn’t seen in the game.

Anyway.

Instead of Resistance Rebels i would have been nicer to have Government Grunts.I really miss em’ after all theyre role in the first Half-Life and expansions was higher then 70%.Lets see Adrian Shephard at least :cry: .I really miss him more then Gordon Freeman.Maybe we’ll get to play with him one day,maybe he will be assigned in by the G-Man for some “silence everything” mission :?: .He with some of his buddies that escaped from Black-Mesa.Who knows? any guess? :roll:

Well, she is the person who does the voice for Dr. Judith Mossman in the Half Life 2 series. Pretty cool ay!!! And she does kinda look a lot like Dr. Judith

I think the orange box was good because first you would need to beat hl2epi2 then portal and tf2 THEN do the achivements and by ther time you do that hl2epi3 will be out. If you do all the achivements… A. your god B. \/\/7F C. you screwed :mrgreen: anyway and anonyMus gordon was 27 in hl1 so add the years befor hl2 came out

brett

halflife2modifier/hl2epsd31.23

On April 28, 2008 at 10:23 am

Facts:

1) Eli Vance is dead.
2) Episode 3 is built around the Borialis.
3) The super portal is neutralized.
4) The combine know everything about the resistance and the Borialis because the adviser pod suck Eli’s memories.

Questions:

1) Is Judith dead?
2) Who is G man?
3) What is the Borialis?
4) Why do the vortagons think Alyx is so important?

Theories :

1) Alyx will be depressed during episode 3 because of Eli’s death.
2) Gman is Gordan in the future come back to help him survive: G ordon free MAN
shortened to GMAN.
3) (very likely) adviser pods will be encountered during episode 3.

I think Ep3 and Portal 2 could take place together, same mission.

CMB.OwT

On April 29, 2008 at 4:52 pm

No the beggining of HL2 E3 will be very different from the beggining of Portal 2 (if there is a Portal 2 coming out)Chell wakes up in front of Aperture Science Main Base and gets very surprised when she meets Combine in White Forest (i think it’s White Forest at the end that’s my guess i could be wrong though but i don’t think so) and she tries to escape them with the help of the Portal Gun (bla bla) and then at the end of E3 she encounters Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance or at the middle of the episode (we’ll just have to see) can’t wait :roll: :shock: :smile: :lol: :lol:

1337 p4rtyp00p3r

On April 30, 2008 at 10:32 am

but the question is… why havent the combine shut down aperature science? are they in cahoots or somthing? i know portal is connected to the half life universe but itll be interesting to find out how.

Don'tDrinkTheWater

On April 30, 2008 at 11:50 am

Just for heads up….the Team Fortress 2 new updates are up!!! A new map called Goldrush (with using the Half Life physics engine) and lots of Medic achievements. Its pretty sweet

brett

On April 30, 2008 at 12:34 pm

HEY everyone! check this out, CLICK ON THE LINK. our long wait for HL2 E3 will not be in vain. the SOURCE ENGINE is getting a huge face lift. With a physics engine equal to Crysis HL2 E3 will be kick ass!!!

CMB.OwT

On April 30, 2008 at 5:25 pm

Actually the answer to your question 1337 p4rtyp00p3r is very simple : The Combine didn’t knew the exact location of Aperture Science Laboratories,if you remember GLaDOS tells Chell that “Much has changed since you were in statis and she is the only one keeping them from coming inside” GLaDOS knew about the Combine and theyre role of World Domination,they just wanted to put theyre dirty hands on the ASHPD (Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device) to reach destinations quicker with troops.And Brett thank you very much we both know we are old school on this forum,and actually i gave VALVE an email with my work for HL2 E3 ”They said”: That its nice to know that somebody apreciates theyre work and they said i have a nice imagination :shock: .hehe (i actually developed a new expansion just like Opposing Force,but mine was this time in the hands of an BLACK OP “retriever” called Rick Havertti the expansion was named THE BLACK PACKAGE and it begins from that black package (aka bomb) that would eventually destroy Black Mesa (you would have to do the dirty work and transport it to the destination (that garage,you would see Corporal Adrian Shephard too through out the game) :grin: .I’m only with the story not the graphics and map creating stuff. :roll: :lol:

You would start in a truck with your fellow black op buddies one truck splits from the other and from your location 1 mission “clean up” operation + the grunts :razz: :roll: ,the second truck reaches 1 waypoint with the bomb but something goes wrong and everyone gets killed (because of Corporal Adrian Shephard)you get to go with your remaining buddies, “till reinforcements come” to get that bomb and reach 2 3 and 4th waypoint and the last one “that garage”. :shock:

On May 9, 2008 at 9:32 am

What is in the borealis ship in the “Aperture Science” box ?
It could be a teleport gun that u can teleport Xen creatures and monster’s to help you kill/destroy the Combine.And those striders are not from Xen? that the combine captured and put on the creature Armor end gun = Strider.Striders have brain that PROBABLE dropships & gunships have brain too.

Isher

On May 9, 2008 at 10:48 am

Wowwwww!! That video clip gets my adrenaline pumping. I too enjoyed Blue Shift and hope that Barney shows up in the next episode. Even though he can be annoying and a bit adolescent, he’s adept at wasting combine and has certainly “paid his dues” as a character in the series. Games like Blue Shift and Redemption seem somewhat crudely rendered in comparison with HL2 and its episodes, they nonetheless offer further understanding of the story and some very interesting puzzles to solve and gameplay to enjoy. I mean REALLY PEOPLE, if valve offered up another freebee like Lost Coast to pacify us until EP3 is released—say something like Barney fighting his way to join the group at White Forest—would we call it and not download it, or would we call it and secretly play it, or would we just play it and be damn thankful we had some more Half-Life to get all vicarious with…? :wink:

brett

On May 9, 2008 at 12:36 pm

Id probably go with the later one Isher, i love new expansions and would be thankfull for anything that Valve gives me about the HL story. :grin:

hello

joseph

On May 11, 2008 at 8:35 am

regarding to previous comments i don’t think that Ep3 and portal 2 will clash, as this would create too many complications. Even though having the portal gun and the gravity gun in your arsenal would be undoubtably cool. But i could still see their worlds collide in the form of easter eggs (i think thats what they are called)as in briefly seeing the character from portal through a window and ditto from her prospective when playing portal. oh and chuck in a load of the cake is a lie and companion cubes hidden around HL EP3.

Isher

On May 11, 2008 at 1:50 pm

Hello joseph. Conjecture about the makeup of HL EP3 is so enjoyable, whether I’m doing the conjecturing myself or reading other persons input. I have to think that someone from Valve reads these entries and, who knows, even if they don’t impact EP3 because the storyboard is already set in concrete, they may be of interest for future Valve efforts. Incidentally, I just realized that this set of entries has been going on for A YEAR NOW!!! This may not be a record, but it is IMPRESSIVE, nonetheless. And…we are a year closer to the release of HL EP3.

brett

On May 11, 2008 at 2:36 pm

interesting thought Isher, you might be right. :lol: and i think one reason this form is so long is if u type “half-life 2 episode 3″ into Google this is the first one that comes up. Plus the fact that epi.3 is the finally to the best video game of all time, that kinda sayes somthing dont u think? :lol: :mrgreen:

Wellllll CMB.OwT, at the risk of inviting a deluge of nastiness from some jerk(s) who love to pounce on any hint of weakness, I must say I agree with a lot of what you say—not that friends are so hard to find, but they are certainly hard to KEEP—politics, religion,or even which fast food place has the best hamburger :grin: along with misdirected competitiveness and needless intolerance provide wedges in relationships all too easily just now. And I think you answered your own question about purpose. While we all know why we were created, You know: Mom, Dad, a bottle of wine, a warm night, etc. you have already defined your own purpose to a significant degree—Stay upright and light enough on your feet so that when HL2 Ep3 comes out, you won’t miss it. If that is what sustains you, so be it.
brett, I had to laugh when I read your last entry. It has been so long, I had forgotten that my Google search was precisely what brought me here in the first place and the unusual degree of comity among the entries is what has brought me back. Is that not Alyx I see running around the copter in the trailer?

Apparently portal was made to get players used to the consept of the portal gun for when episode three is out. I think the games going to be set on and around the Apature Science Ship and as Apature science made the portal gun, well put one and two together and you might think “What if you find a portal gun on the ship?” And maybe the portal gun might have some new nifty tricks. And maybe the Vortagons can do some cool stuff to it. And maybe it’ll take you somewhere special like where G-man is from!

Oooh I sound all like an excited little school girl. I can’t WAIT for this game :D .

CMB.OwT

On May 15, 2008 at 2:22 pm

I’ve seen that trailer….i don’t know if it’s a “leak” from Valve or not but my guess is that it’s a fake you know why? The Half-Life Saga always beggins it’s episode without any weapons except maybe in episode 3 just like in episode 2 just the Gravity Gun and in the trailer it starts where episode 2 ends,you see the helicopter too….so you can’t possible have a shotgun i don’t know what to say but my guess is,thats a fake.. :?: :?: :roll: :roll:

… Half life 2 episodes 1-3 are NOT in any way a 3rd installment of the HL serious. they are expansions of 2. thus, they share simillar motives and story line.

On May 18, 2008 at 1:32 pm

i reckon alyx will die in the 3rd episode near the end or earliest in the middle of the game then u have to complete it with barney (if hes found) and judith and a whole army of vortiguants i reckon there will be a funeral for eli and alyx if they r both dead at the end of the game then the camera will move around and let us take a look at gordon and the screen will fade and say “status: freeman ,assignment terminated, reason, no further comment hehee plz will someone agree with me? :)

Eochaid

On May 18, 2008 at 3:04 pm

Nah, Alix isn’t going to die, she and Gorden have to “do their duty” right? Lol, that made me laugh when Eli said that. I also have a prediction that Eli will somehow possess the Advisor that ate his brains. But seeing how Half Life typically focuses philosophically on the cruel reality of existence and scientific probibility, I doubt it’ll happen. But it would be cool.

I think in the end, Gordon and Alix will have to prevent “unforseen consequences” by destroying the combine without using whatever is on the Borealis and destroying the Borealis, but that’s just my thoughts. I just hope I get to kick some Advisor butt. I hate those things.

Isher

On May 19, 2008 at 10:37 am

Ditto on the Advisors, Eochaid! Braincrabs, zombies, combine soldiers, hunters and even the Nihilanth are, in the end, just adversaries that can be dispatched. The advisors, however, seem so hideously dangerous, like creatures from our nightmares. They are the Joseph Mengeles of the Half-Life saga—they neutralize our weapons, make us (seemingly) helpless, and then do horrible things to us. Uh-uh, I don’t like them even a little bit—wanna do ‘em some serious hurt.

CMB.OwT

On May 19, 2008 at 3:48 pm

It’s a great possibility or probability over 50% and that’s half that “Mister Gordon Freeman” will die at the end risking his life for the sake of man kind,but that’s only a probability,My guess is that something shocking will indeed surprise us, like the appearance of Corporal Adrian Shephard who is maybe frozen and still under statis on board(The Borealis)….It will be a drama like always in this last expansion belonging to The Half-LIfe Saga,it freezes my blood just when i think of it.And The Advisors are some weird enemies that we will have to finish off with the help of modern technology my friends :lol: .A BFG(Big ing Gun)will do the trick. :mrgreen: Just can’t wait for the appearance of the LAST Half-Life Saga Episode….

What’s more thrilling and you should think of it just like EP3 is if it’s going to appear with an expansion just like EP2 did,will the expansion be Portal 2 ??….A new expansion through the eyes of Corporal Adrian Shephard or maybe Barney Calhoun….??

Isher

On May 23, 2008 at 12:36 pm

O.K. I replayed the end of Ep.2 again and just before Eli enters the hangar, he tells Gordon that the Borealis must be destroyed NO MATTER THE COST. Since that statement is surely not a “throw away” or incidental to the game, Gordon will be faced with a horrible dilemma at some point. I have doubts that Doctors Mossman or Kleiner can be elevated in stature to match the status of that dilemma and since Barney’s whereabouts are unknown to us, that only leaves Gordon himself and Alyx. Will Gordon have to choose between the destruction of the Borealis and himself or Alyx? Damn! I hope not! :cry: :cry: :cry:

On May 28, 2008 at 11:19 am

i think that each difficulty should change the missions and whats going on in the games, because that way its like 3 games in one and u wont know what to expect. also gordon should say something in the game. if u use the thirdperson cheat or the chase_active 1 cheat all you see is gordons arms, they may have made some gr8 half life games, but valve still have major problems that make the games in someway, unrealistic.

i saw him walkin along the broken highway towards the gate at the time when u come out of the mines with the vort and alyx, just b4 u get the car… i was like WTF was he following us or something!!!

ive never played a game like the HL series b4, no other game can make me feel like im actually in another real world

Me too Ikkana,i feel like i’m in another world and when i do play The Half-Life Saga i forget about the real world :roll: ..that’s so great….
I wonder Gordon “FREE”man stands for the eliberation of man kind and the eliberation of G-Man….it could be,because the story is rotating around the word “FREE” that means the story is rotating around Mister Gordon Freeman,after all everyone struggled to escape and be free..Corporal Adrian Shephard,Mister Gordon Freeman,Alyx Vance,Eli Vance,Barney Calhoun,Dr.Kleiner,Dr.Mossman,Dr.Magnuson,Judith Mossman and the cityzens,the vortigounts….and everyone else

Another important fact! did Father Gregori escape from Ravenholm,or from that huge explosion created by the core in the Citadel??….I do hope i get to see him at least one more time,with that shotgun of his..Annabelle was it?? :roll: :cry: :roll: :wink:

i hope the incorperate the portal gun into ep 3 as the borialis is an Apeture Science ship after all lol fingers crossed! nothing would be better then fighting the combine with the portal gun!

Freshrevenge

On June 3, 2008 at 1:20 pm

I totally love Half-life 2.I just got the Orange Box for the Ps3 and
I would have to say that it’s one of the best games that I have played!
The story is just fantastic it’s just too bad that I didn’t have a
PC all these years, now I am considering getting a PC. Now if the
Episode 3 comes to the Ps3 I will be happy but if it doesn’t than I
just have to get a PC!
(big spoiler alert!! read with caution!!)
I was thinking that now that Eli is dead, Alyx is going to be really
pissed off at the combine and especially the Advisors but how are
we going to face them when we can’t lift a finger to inflict damage
to them I was really annoyed that I couldn’t use any of my weapons?

So far I played the game numerous times and it doesnt get old, I
would just like to play the next chapter in the series! Plus I going
to see about playing the Half life 1 because the Gman is such a puzzeling
character I am wondering if he is good or bad. Because I think when
whispers Prepare for unforeseen Circumstance to Alyx it was related to Eli
death? Any way Awesome Game a 10 across the board

LoneWolf XD

On June 3, 2008 at 1:24 pm

Ok guys first off to say how wonderful Half-life 2 and ep1 and ep2 were i haad great fun playing them now to buisness

Ep3 will take place on the borealis as was said because it hints this near the end of ep2 if you bother to listen it will not take place in the arctic or Greenland
or on earth it is in space on the Borealis k so next

Half-life 3 is not out yet it is in the making it will have nothing to do with Combine city 17 rebels or alyx and Eli it is completely new storyline ok
So ep 1 and ep2 are NOT half-life 3 just put into chunks i repeat they are not
Half-life 3 is being produced right now and is a totally new storyline this is from one of the Half-life 3 valve team so listen k and im not wrong this is genuine

LoneWolf XD

On June 3, 2008 at 1:31 pm

Now this is from A member of the valve team assigned to work on the half-life franchise now this is the only thing im saying Gordon Freeman is not going to die this is not the end of his adventures as he is the hero of the Half-life franchise
And as far as we know he will live through half-life 3 and further if possible its all up to us whether he dies or not but i assure you he won’t die

Freshrevenge

On June 3, 2008 at 1:43 pm

I just wanted to add a little conjecture about the Episode 3.
First I think that maby just maby On how Eli was going on about Judith
leaves me to think that she may be pregnant? thats a big possibility
I just remember when in episode two he was on the elevator from where
the Rocket was and he was looking really concerned about hearing about
the transmission that his daughter found! Another from other comments
I would hate to see Alyx die in the third one when they pulled her
from near death in the second! Which from a story telling perspective
would be unwise! Now killing Gordon Freeman would be absurb since the
the series started with him Killing his character would be unwise, now
introducing a new character to continue the series would be better.
But Killing Gordon Freeman is like taking Fox Mulder out the the Xfiles
which in the last two seasons the show took a hit in the ratings!
Now I would like to see Barney which he went absent on the second but
I think storywise the focus was on Alyx and her father getting back
Whiteforest and delivering the signature data. Anyway I would wait
to find out what happens I am sure that Valve will have something up there
sleeve!

Sean

On June 3, 2008 at 2:28 pm

Hey Valve I got some ideas for episode three! Once in a while I would bring out chapters of what might happen, I can’t wait to show them to you. To bad they are not done yet, not even half-way. See you in once in a while, lol! :lol:

freshrevenge

On June 3, 2008 at 4:30 pm

I don’t know about you but the way the 2nd episode ending it really
blew my mind, the first time I played it, it totally got me off guard!
I just wonder how Alyx is going to hold up in the 3rd episode, I mean \
she had such a strong connection to her father! How is she going to
react and how is she going to keep here sense of humor now. It hard\
to imagine she can search for Judith with a clear mind. I mean you
can’t just expect her to jump on the chopper now its just not
conceivable? I am expecting some time delay on searching for the Borealis!
Or maby Alyx sitting it out for a couple of levels to get her head back
in the game in searching Judith or the Borealis? leaving it to Gordon
maby they can bring Barney to assist Gordon? I mean talk about a plot
twist from hell! I mean it was different with the hunter nearly taking here life. I hope when the 3rd episode comes they can bring Alyx back, she
has been the most endearing Companion in a game that I have come to
love, when I play it I remember when it was dark she would would sound
like a monster just to play a joke on you when I getting ready to open
fire on the Zombie, It was moments like that made me feel connected
to the characters. Oh Why did Eli have to Diemahttp://news.filefront.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_evil.gi

On June 4, 2008 at 6:50 pm

Like ikkana, I had previously noticed Kleiner catching hell from Magnuson because Lamar was messing around the satellite/nosecone, so the last time I played Ep.2 and while Magnuson was chiding everyone for their friendly banter, I went over to the rocket and peeked through the hatch and there, indeed, was Lamar crawling around inside. Sooo, unless Kleiner fished him out while Gordon was securing the rocket and the base, whoosh goes the defanged braincrab. I also realized, during this last playthrough, that there is one weapon that remains functional during an attack by the advisors—DOGG! So if the good Drs. Kleiner and Magnuson can figure out how to use this knowledge to our advantage… Of course, a small army of Doggs under Gordon’s control would be sweet, too :cool: :cool: :cool:

You guys need to look harder. In response to the GMan’s not appearing, he actually did appear once. In the area where you get the car, I saw something blue moving across the bridge (don’t know for sure). Anyway, somewhere in the area I saw something small, blue, hard to see, and human-sized. This is looking from the sniper gun. I could tell it was GMan. I swear to god the blue thing had a breifcase. And you know how he would sometimes stop and stare at you? That’s what the blue thing on the bridge did (only breifly). If you can see details that small, VALVe really put detail in the game. Also- I FOUND THE GMAN! Someone should use GMod and make a comic or game where in different custom maps you find GMan like finding Waldo (minus people).

On June 22, 2008 at 9:11 pm

Recently I bought the orange box. I played a ton of Team Fortress 2, and Portal. Portal was extremely easy but addictive. Team Fortress 2 was a great online multiplayer game. But straight to HL2.

I bought Half Life a long time ago. I LOVED it so much, I bought all the expansion packs. Half Life 2 came out, I was so freaking happy! I played it so many times I can like recite what they say in it.

So I waited, I lost my steam account and never found out about Ep 1 and Ep 2 coming out… So when I finally got my steam account back I wanted to get the Orange Box so badly, the Half Life 2 campaign was so addictive.

Episode 1, sort of dissapointed in how short it was, but the plot backed it up. And that blue gravity gun you had at the begging of the game was so freaking sweet!

Episode 2, extremely great game! I just finished beating it, the ending was radther sad. I saw DOG run away and I knew something bad was going to happen, when those weird things had you in their grasp you couldn’t attack them back with your weapons. If I could Eli would not be in the same condition he is in now.

Episode 3 — most likely you are staying on Earth and going on the heli to the Borealis.

I think Episode 1,2, and 3 are all here just to continue the HL2 Campaign. Just like HL1′s Opposing Force and Blue Shift, they all were in HL1 world. HL3 I think is going to be in a completley different atmosphere, instead of fighting Combine you will probably have to fight new enemies. Just my input on this.

By the way, where did Barney go? :mrgreen:

Isher

On June 23, 2008 at 10:36 am

Yes, where is the sometimes exasperating and occasionally embarrasing but ultimately courageous Mr. Calhoun? As I played through ep. 2, I kept thinking that we might meet up with Barney at or on the way to White Forest but, I guess in this Half-Life world, his train made it through without the mishap that Gordon and Alyx suffered and he ended up in some other city to continue the resistance effort. I do hope we will be able to buy him “a cold one” somewhere down the line.

On June 23, 2008 at 3:18 pm

The one most immediate question: why couldn’t the combine advisors get a telekinetic grip on Eli? (not for lack of trying, judging by the streamers shooting out.)

Second most: Why didn’t they just put Dog on the Combine’s trail right in episode one, and thus finish them in one swift strike. :P

Dog isn’t that powerful. He has struggles with a lot of combine.

@Isher –

I kept thinking the same thing. Surely if they were to of killed Barney they would have told you in HL2 Ep2. But last time it showed him he said “See ya when I see ya.” And I guess, we’ll see him when we see him.

We know one thing for sure, and thats that if episode 3 comes out in 2009 its going to be in Q4. They need to take their time with this, we dont even have any info on it but I’m willing to wait a year to get some videos and screenshots of it.

Also we know episode 3 will feature the borealis which is in a snow filled region. I for one would like so see some snow/ice based enemies. One thing I DO NOT want to see AT ALL is ichyosaurs. Those things scare the heck out of me. I barely had the nerves to get in the water in the first half life and face them.
It would be cool to see some old aliens return again though. Gargantuas are cool.

I dont think episode 3 will feature any space battles or anything like it, but I believe in it gordon will go into the combines homeworld just like the first half life.

We’ll see.

Freakin’ awesome :twisted: . HL2 is the most amazing piece of technology that I’ve ever played. I love it. Just finished EP2. Amazing. Although very short and :cry: . I must say the original Half Life 2 had far more longevity and the difficulty was more noticeable. I really love it and I’m replaying it. I have gathered all the Half life series, HL, HLS, HL2, HL2EP1, HL2EP2, TF2, Portal, etc. I don’t have the CSS only, but I’ll get it. All the SP are finished. :grin: Really great. Waiting forward to get a 9600GSO and replay them all at full specs.
Can’t wait for EP3. :mrgreen:
See ya.

Just finished Ep2! Joy! It’s an awesome game. I bet they’ll bring Eli back the same way they brought back Alyx.
Also, with the contiunity thing my theory, is Ep3 will be the final attack to rid Earth of the Combine and Half-Life 3 will be the human fighting back in the combines home world.
It makes sense, Half-Life 1 was the start of it all, bringing in the creatures from Xen and thus starting the Combines attacking the human home world. Half Life 2 is a separate story arc of the conflict on the human planet (this includes Ep1-Ep3) Half Life 3 is another story arc, from when earth has been successfully protected and the combine have been pushed back so the humans make one final assault on the combine to stop any future attacks. Of course, you play as Gordon in all of the games.
G-man? No idea. I don’t think he’s Gordon from the future anymore because the idea of Gordons character is that he displays no emotions thus you create your characters personality, so G-man being Gordon would ruin that concept and MAKE you become a weird guy in your future. An alternate Gordon from a parralell universe on the other hand…maybe…

The half life series is simply the best first person shooter games ever made no questions asked halo sucks balls big big balls. I don’t see the point in playing halo wow aliens shoot shoot shoot shoot the whole game it is just a piece of repetitive crap where you shoot a bunch of to take you to another place where you shoot more . The story line blows and did I mention it sucks balls. Half life was awesome but half life 2 was amazing especially because of the sweet ragdoll physics that seems to have been lost on galo or I mean halo. And the story line was sweet plus the gravity gun which allows you to pick up almost anything and throw it at things. I loved cutting zombies in half with saws then setting them on fire. anyway if you are a halo fanatic you’ll probably try to insult me by saying i’m a retard and try to use your limited vocabulary because your an 8 year old and halo was a whole new step in gaming. NO IT WASN”T maybe a whole new step in ness. It is just another first person shooter that should have only been one. Halo had horrible gameplay and was just completely boring because for one thing it is the SAME thing over and over again. On the other hand half life no matter how many they make it will always be sweet just like gta. I also have to say that gta is the best series ever. not because it is ing tight running people over or stealing a car. It is because it was the first game ever to introduce an open free world or sandbox where you could do anything you want to do without having to do missions. Other games try to copy gta
*Saints Row* cough cough. just like other games try to copy off half life *Halo* cough cough cause they choke on balls. honestly halo 1 wasn’t that bad it was alright but the second one was horrible and the 3 halo was the single best video game disaster ever made. And somehow it is game of the year!!!!!! WHAT THE ing clam licking sucking ing ass s made halo 3 game of the year! It was more like game of the award. The only people who play halo are s and kids or s that are kids so like fids. Luckily some actually cool games have come out this year such as gta 4 and mgs 4 both really really amazing games just like half life. OMG lets just hope they don’t make a HALO 4 I will ing put sulfuric acid down the ing developers eyes and their throats kill their children rape and ravage their women and down their open necks!!!!!!!!!!!!! i’m not kidding. Their are a lot of ing tight ass games of the 21 century but their is one I HATE and that is that of galo. Anyway to sum up everthing I said basically HALO SUCKS BALLS. Jesus Christ I’m stil typing
halo sucks balls

HL2 is awesome

On July 8, 2008 at 10:08 am

The Half-Life series is one of the games that will be remembered and no one will ever stop playing. No doubt their will be more than episode 3. valve said it will be the end of the trilogy, not the series.

HL2 is awesome

I don’t think I made it clear how much halo really sucks balls, halo sucks big balls. And since HOMOSEXUAL SENSATION previously commented

And yes SENSATION the experience was quite satisfying just like you satisfy your sexual needs on men by sucking their s just like the halo developers suck everyone else’s s. :eek: I am sorry, I don’t know why I get so ing angry every time someone says halo. But maybe it’s the fact that halo sucks fat nuts. O and pst pst pst HOMOSEXUAL SENSATION their is a thing that is under womens panties called vaginas yes vaginas why don’t you try ing them instead of trying to seduce men and their s. Try it next time, hey? You might even enjoy the experience.

Me 3,i bought The Orange Box a month ago and every single game in it owns the living out of any FPS game and puzzle game(unless ur a tetris fan LOL!),i really wanted the orange box bc of TF2,i started playing it and all and its pretty amazing but 3 days later i wanted to see how HL2 was bc i’d seen HL1 since like 2000 and then HL2 in 2004 and i didn’t even paid attention to the game,and then a friend recently talked about it and i was like “wow it’s a singleplayer? it must suck big time”but after i got out of that train in City 17…dude… :shock: i punched myself for saying that it sucked and i became a fan xD :mrgreen: i finished HL2 in a week and got to EP1,short but awesome i finished it in a day =P and then started EP2 and i just finished it and dude..i barelly cry about anything and at the ending of EP2 i had a tear on my face and now im begging VALVe to release EP3,but i perfer to w8 1 more year or so for EP3 rather than being released fast and be a piece of ,u know what they say u can’t rush quality xD,anyways im getting HL1 with expansions tomorrow so i can understand the storyline from the beggining b4 EP3 is released,and i might play HL2 and EPs another 20 times or more who knows. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

BTW GTA GOD,i agree with u about Halo being the biggest steaming pile of horse ever!!!(just like Vista LOL!!!)It’s just the same all over again,and then ppl r like”DUDE I JUST BEAT HALO ON LEGENDARY!”I mean CMON it’s just shooting someone’s ass all over again,u don’t even need to use stratergy on that game,even a retarded 8 year old can pass the game in legendary.Microsoft developers these days….they add the words EPIC on most of they’re programs and they’ve been doing so since 2006. :!: :!: :!: :mad: :mad: :!: :!:

On August 5, 2008 at 11:55 pm

HOW the do headcrabs reproduce. I mean they live on peoples heads and control their hosts but how do they reproduce. I guess they can head hump each other. But the biggest question is how does HALO find a way to reproduce. How does it find a way to carry on its worthless meaningless existence forming a cess pool of monstrous proportions. My only reasoning it is the Anti Christ. Formed to make people draw there attention away from other video games with the sole purpose of making other video game companies go out of business. No body talks about the classic games anymore it’s only halo that halo this im a got. They have already brainwashed 90 percent of America corrupting childrens lives by giving them a ty game and making it cool. Halo is satan itself. So I say don’t let you or your children or your children’s children play this halo game. Or in the future your children will be at risk of being…………………………………………………………..homosexual. There is only one known cure for a child turning because he played halo. Large injections of Grand Theft Auto will turn your child straight again. I am not making this up people it is written somewhere in the bible stating he who plays halo with become a got. Think if everyone played halo we’d ALL be and being means no reproducing and no reproducing means total human extinction. And that is what this ANTI CHRIST or better known halo wants. Be forewarned “we must take a new path or sweet jesus we will certainly fall.” Quoted from gta god august 5th 2:02AM The beginning of the end.

GTA GOD

On August 7, 2008 at 7:06 pm

half life does not mean a crystal or metal fused to make an explosion half life is the measure of the rate of decay of a radioactive element. It is the time it takes for a radioactive element to reduce to one half its original number. Valve used that name in HALF LIFE because it sounds cool and their is a lot of radioactive in HALF LIFE. Also if you notice all of those upside down y symbols in HALF LIFE (look at gordons suit at the top of the page) The upside down y’s are the half life symbol used in mathematical equations.

GTA GOD

On August 7, 2008 at 7:11 pm

Also has anyone wondered why they call GMAN the GMAN wtf. I think he is an extraterrestrial being that can move freely through time or space using gordon to clean up the world. I don’t think we will know his true intentions until we play half life 3. That is if they stop at half life 3. O yay I almost forgot………………………………………………………………………..Halo sucks balls

GTA GOD

On August 7, 2008 at 7:36 pm

Leukarlung if u haven’t picked up on who Gordon is. Why don’t you try to see who the people are looking at when they say “my god Gordon Freeman it really is you isn’t it”. Or is the game too complex and hard to understand because it actually has dialog and a storyline unlike games like HALO you got mother ing you made me bring Halo up again I WILL ING BREAK YOU YOU PIECE OF UNCOMPREHENDING LOVING . I bet you know who masterchief is you got. Go shoot some little aliens that giggle like children you little and reach LEGENDARY. Yay LENGENDARY GOT. If anyone hasn’t read my message about halo then you should scroll up and look about the end of the world resulting in the ness of Halo. My ing god jesus do you still not know who Gordon Freeman is. He is YOU you play as Gordon Freeman in the game.

GTA GOD you are right about Halo.The first Halo was ok but Halo2 and Halo3.You do the same thing over and over and over again.Lets not talk about how un-optimized Halo2 is for PC.

Halo Half-life

1.Story 1.Story

BAD Great

2.Gameplay 2.Gameplay

You do one thing Great gameplay.Rich number of enviroments.
over and over.

Isher

On August 9, 2008 at 9:07 am

I’m hesitant to get in this fray. What the heck! Here is my take:
1. Lambada is a dance form :wink: ,
2. Lambda is the symbol for the half-life of a given radioactive substance as GTA GOD has pointed out,
3. Half-life of a radioactive substance is the time that transpires while that substance loses one-half of its mass through the emission of neutrons, alpha and beta particles, etc.,
4. Critical Mass describes the amount of fissible material such as plutonium or uranium-235 required to sustain a chain reaction—BOOOOOM—and I think this is what kaysjays may have in mind,
5. I’ve never played Halo, but with all the fuss and fuming I’ve observed herein, I feel compelled to visit my local Game Stop, acquire a copy, play the bloody thing, and find out if I then find Gordon or Barney more attractive than Alyx :!: :!: .
6. And finally—having followed these conversations for many months now, I find that some devotees have played HL 2 along with episodes 1 and/or 2, some have played HL 1, Opposing Force, Blue Shift and right on through HL2, ep.2, but few have played “Redemption” and have then missed out on a chapter in the saga of Gordon Freeman and the G-Man. So, instead of chewing off one of our appendages in frustration as we wait for HL2,ep.3, I suggest a search for this relatively unknown Half-Life game.

jonte91n

On August 10, 2008 at 4:14 am

I think that Ep2 took place in Sweden, cause if you look on the gas-station before the combineattack on that hotel it says: Volym,Summa,Kronor and stuff like that. It’s Swedish.

On August 10, 2008 at 2:24 pm

This is wrong..
Back after Half-Life 2 was released Valve Corporation were in a dillemma. Should they keep working for another 7 years to create Half-Life 3, or should they make a trilogy that continues the Half-Life 2 story.
They decided NOT to make Half-Life 3 and instead create the trilogy.

Maybe:
I would have a hard time believing that Valve is stopping the Half-Life serie, but if Half-Life 3 is made without all the original coders (HL1 and 2) then a Half-Life 3 would be a giant disapointment!

On August 14, 2008 at 6:01 pm

I think it’s because they’re gonna make it longer than HL2 and since it’s the final episode of the series Valve has to make sure it’s epic,(BTW The Orange Box is pure ownage xD,if u play other steam games like TF2,HL2:DM,Gmod and or CS:S add me,steam id “snipeurhead” xD im not a noob btw i play ok)

Ok, I think the G-man is like some kind of inter-universal biussnessman, people make deals with him. Eli made a deal with him to save Alyx, Supported by the reference”When he dragged her out of Black Mesa, I knew it was for his own damn uses”…. G-man is interested in Gordon becuase someone “bought” Gordon’s help to defeat the combine.

Jack

On August 17, 2008 at 5:44 am

G-man will take Gordon to a differnet assignment at the combine defeat. Breen knew about Gordons contract

Isher

On August 17, 2008 at 11:55 am

Jack, I think you have a good hold on who the G-man is—a business man. In addition to what you have observed, the G-man in “Redemption” has clearly contracted with someone else for Gordon’s services in recapturing the “moths” (telnorps?) that Gordon released in Half-Life 1 and the G-man becomes almost violently agitated with that “someone else” when he feels the other party is trying to tell him how to do his business. We are never able to physically interact with the G-man (touch him, shoot him, smack him with a crowbar) as though he is a projection. For all we know, he may only be virtual and not actual.

OK im just gonna say this because ive seen too many people talking about “Half Life 3″ which according to valve thus far does not exist

Half Life Episode 1, 2, and 3 ARE Half Life 3, just split into episodes so you dont have to wait 6 years to find out what happened after the gman talks to you at the end of HL2

Valve has even said better name would have been
Half Life 3: Episode 1, 2, and 3″

Also IMO, there will be no portal gun in episode 3, perhaps something to do with portals but not the gun itself

i hope that if the hl storyline ends to the ep3,it will be more longer than the hl2 episode 1 and 2.Because it was a little bit boring that the episode 1 and 2 ended so quickly.SO if they will end it to the ep3 ,it will be ended in style and it would be nice that it were as long as hl2. i mean no rush making it but it would be nice :roll: (sorry sbout my bad english)

On September 3, 2008 at 7:54 am

Screw episode 3! :evil:

the half life 2 engine’s dated already. it should just go to half life 3, with a new overhauled graphics engine using euphoria and water physics. these additions would suit the gameplay, bring the franchise back on top and emphisise the scientific intelligence that made half-life so domminant from all the other ty fps’s

also a return to xen could make things interesting. instead of floating in space, they should create a whole world full of crazy . like swamps and caves and things.

bring in the portal gun too! and those little shockwave creatures from half-life 1. where the were they in number 2? :?: :shock: they would have totally suited the physics gameplay. the could be the gorginites pets or something.

if none of these these things are included in the next installment, its not half-life :roll:

On September 3, 2008 at 3:40 pm

zen; like what you said but half life episode 1,2,and 3 are half life 3! now Half life 1 took about 12 years to make. half life 2 took 6 years to make. And they prodicted half life three would take long

Gordon Freeman

On September 3, 2008 at 9:31 pm

OK think about this if u have played half life right from the beginnings as i have …so where is my 2 cents worth
the g-man who is he ?….well i think he is the leader of the combine the circumstances surrounding him are to many for me to ignore so this is my thoughts

you first see G-man in hl1 in the office on the way down to the reactor and then again throughout the game watching you, with nothing attacking him ,,,OK so u pass it off as a fun side to the game… in hl2 he is here again this time he owns u and sends u off to fill a contract he has for you…OK but he is watching u again, everywhere u go u can find him….ie cameras in the prison …boat yard is just a couple , how mad do he get when the vortigons take u from him , ok … i think he purposely sets up the reactor to fail in hl1 to see who had the skills he needed.. he found you…then before it was too late saved u … hl2 guided you through the combines let you think you had won…every war has its victims.. always following you hoping you would get close to eli (mutual friend eli calls him) G-man also gave Alex a message for her father (prepare for unforeseen consequences) <– remember what happened last time u heard that in hl1?…now to the main part the BORIALIS supposed to be the ship which holds the portal weapon which was “if the combine got hold of the portal weapon” before the end of hl2 eli said he was going to tell u everything about “our mutual friend” so in the end i think that the G-man just wanted to find a person with the right skills to get him to the borialis and take the portal weapon….in ep3 after killing the advisers i think he will be next….
that’s what i think anyways

What if G-man, and Eli worked on the Borialis together? Now they are using Gordons skills, and knowlege, since hes like the only other person that knows whats going on and what happen @ Black Mesa, to protect the ship. Thats why G-man seems to be everywhere, hes using Borialis technology!!! :?:

It would be cool if the vortigaunts turned on gordon freeman and everyone else.

ShadowBounty

On September 7, 2008 at 9:56 am

Soz about all these rubish posts of mine. At the start of EP3 i think that GMAN will talk to you at the start and say boring stuff like always. And if gordon and alyx take that helicopter i think the combines will shoot it down and you will land in some unknown place. And then your mission will be to reach that Ship. I know the name of ship. i just can’t spell it. Also, I wonder what Dr kliner will do when he finds out Eli is dead (Thank god for that) ALSO again what happened to lamarr? I know that it went up in the rocket but is it dead?
I’m sure the combines will fight back. What about portal in EP3? At the end of portal you see some forest. Is it white forest? Who will play a big part in EP3? Who else escaped City 17? Is barney dead i didn’t see him in EP2. Who is leading the combines now? Gman? Will gordon finally talk in EP3? who knows. Thats why we wait for it to come out.

The game is good…but what I can’t understand is: How did the game get Freeman to fight the Combine…if he was fighting aliens from the border world? And who is the Combine? Where does it come from? And latst, but not least: Why is Valve still working at the “black mesa project”? :neutral:

CMB.OwT

On September 10, 2008 at 4:10 am

Hi guys,i’m back excuse me for not being here all this time but i had rather unfinished business to attend to..[Private] how do you know that Alyx Vance and Judith Mossman will die at the near end of Episode 3,how do you know that Mister Freeman will ran across the same type of portal gun that Chell had,how do you know that White Forest will be wiped out and everyone in it killed,These are indeed the next set of “Questions” for the next expansion pack “Episode 3″.
If you ask me you will not be able to use the portal gun in Episode 3,but you will hear the rebbels talking about a women who has a rather interesting weapon,You will be able to use the portal gun in “PORTAL 2″ Valve said this time we will get some real action,that means we will be able to fight the combine through the eyes of Chell,which landed in the Aperture Science Front base with the remains of GLaDOS (Genetic Life and Disk Operating Sistem),That’s what i think,we will have to wait a bit longer because now they need to work on Portal 2 like Episode 3….Alyx Vance will not die,at least not now,Judith Mossman will sacrifice herself for some important “data”,(that’s what i think),We will get to mess up and fight against a Combine Advisor(s)….It’s also a small chance we will get to hear something about Adrian Shephard who is “DETAINED” by the G-Man,he will not appear now in Episode 3,or Portal 2 (it’s a chance maybe that in “Portal 2″ we will hear some information about Adrian Shephard)….Have patience as for the release date for Hl2 E3 i’ve seen on IGN that E3 has TBA 2009….(Hell Yeah!! Hell Yeah!! It’s good to be back)

bens life 2

On September 10, 2008 at 1:29 pm

i dont get one thing about gordon freeman, because you know what he looks like but if you type in thirdperson on the console, you just see a pair of arms and on the teaser videos valve deliberately put the camera angle where you cant see him, and near the start of episode 1 you watch an old recording from near the end of half-life 2 where breen is talking about his survival and then it is interupted by an advisor (i think) just as your about to see gordon chasing breen. A bit confusing if you ask me?

CMB.OwT

On September 10, 2008 at 2:21 pm

Gordon Freeman is the so called “masterpiece” of Valve….They must try and keep the details about him and give us those details in time..This here is a story The Half-Life Saga….I’m running out of patience,can’t wait for E3 + Portal 2 (i hope they make a Portal 2) in this expansion pack….

CMB.OwT

On September 11, 2008 at 1:23 pm

They would obviously make “Episode 4″ maybe or we will have to wait untill they make Half-Life 3 ….But if you put it logically all in one piece they will make another “thingy” about the Half-Life Story not necessary Episode 3 ….They could make another expansion introducing other characters like Barney Calhoun,Adrian Shephard something like that like the previous expansions (Half-Life Opposing Force,Half-Life Blue Shift) but this time for Half-Life 2

XEN Vortiguant 847 When Freeman caused the Black Mesa Incedent in HL1 and started teleporting the Xen creature in the Combine say what was happening. After you killed the Nilanth the Combine moved in and took over Earth, establishing Citadels all over the world and enslaving the human race. Random thought… what happened to the kids in Hl2? Are all humans steril?

Isher

hl fan, A strong likelihood is that Lamar accompanied the rocket into space :shock: Just before Magnusson sent Gordon down to close the blast doors, I had Gordon climb the stairs to the nosecone and look inside. There, indeed, was Lamar mucking about inside. So unless Dr. Kleiner fished him out before launch, Lamar went bye-bye. I suspect that Barney is still “being Barney” somewhere and that we will “see him when we see him”. Adrian is another thing. You and I and a lot of other players would like to have him back in another episode—preferably fighting side by side with Gordon and Alyx and Barney and Dogg. Well, we will see in a few months…

4-Half Life is do to come out next FEBUARY so like in 5 months
5th and last thing-check out left 4 dead it includes 4 survivers millions of zombies[very scary] and the best thing is its made by GABE NEWEL and the creaters of half life-which is valve.

p.s did you now that this page was made to find out when half-life 2 episode 2 came out

definition of half life—– the time required for half of the atoms of a radioactive substance to become disintigrated in one small explosian

unless you have a lot of radioactivity it will be a huge EXPLOSION

Al lthe half life series are really great, starting from HL1 which i played back in 2000, then i got the spin-offs, which were also relatively great. the episodes where amazing, kepps you hanging for more at the end too. the second episode almost made me cry :( but ill have my revenge in ep 3!! :P Good Job to Valve!

Luke

On October 7, 2008 at 10:05 am

Valve can take as long as they please… and they will, because in the end we get a finished, flawless, polished, bug-less product that each and every time rises well above all the rest of the competition.
Be greatful they’re still making Half-life games based on how successful and lucrative the franchise has been…
So rest easy and buy yourself Half-Life 1 and start the story over again so you can get what Dr. Magnason is talking about when he says he’ll forgive you for the microwave casserole.

there’s an unsung character that has appeared only in one game of the half life series.that is corporal sheppard from opposing force.it’s a pity that he’s put -rather unceremoniously- into some kind of stasis at the end of the game and never heard of again…i mean barney from blue shift does appear in hl2 & hl2 ep.1

I beileve that apeture science was using the borealis as a portle or something like jumper the movie.I believe that the borealis went into a portle and got lost in Greenland-F.Y.I the borealis is up North not South.

the reason why i think this is because the half life seriouse is based on the actuale deffinition of Half Life and Portles

Hey...its me

On October 12, 2008 at 1:42 pm

Episode 3 will most likley take place somewhere in the arctic circle (seberia, considering city 17 is in what seems to be eastern europe/russia) specificaly on a research ship that belonged to Ap. science (Portal). There was exstensive foreshadowing in episode 2 that suggestes episode 3 will have a much more frantic storyline, like that of the original half-life. At any rate, whats left of the Combine will most likley be the main opposing force again…

bens life 2

On October 13, 2008 at 12:25 pm

if corporal shephard is in episode 3 he would be a corporal combine soldier would he not? he would probs look well cool and could get confused with if the combine is the right side or not then maybe join the rebels along with gordon and alyx to win the world back from the combine bastards that killed eli
