I have finish ep1 and I just got more questions than answers. Breen, is he alive still?? I have a hunch that he is in a host body like he was talking about before. Breen may be in one of those synth rockets as an alien and escaped. Also what is in the message package sent during the core explosion? Come discuss these mysteries ep1 made.
I don't know, but I miss that desert, reddish rocky landscape that I call Black Mesa, Arizona. I can't really get into Half-Life 2 as I did Half-Life. I think the message in the core explosion was a "we're losing control!" type of message, like a distress call. To get the real combine army to come back and get things under control. But if the humans lose, I bet the combine will wipe out humanity. They should put in Half life 1 Xen creatures (that we're intelligent, like vortigaunts) like the Gargantua and Alien Grunt to fight at your side.
Well, like I posted in the "Ahah!" thread, this was on Wikipedia:
Half-Life 2: Episode One
Dr. Breen's fate remains unknown in Half-Life 2: Episode One. His only appearances in the game are during an apparent flashback/dream with Gordon at the beginning, asking Freeman to think about what all that he has created (and destroyed). Another occasion of Breen's appearance was during a video recording of a conversation made during Half-Life 2, where he mentions being transferred into a "host body". After seeing Breen on the monitor, Alyx is surprised, questioning how it is possible, but then relieved when she realizes that it's an old recording - apparently she believes that Breen is dead. In the same scene, what seems to be a Combine Advisor in a pod (with the serial number 314 URB-LOC 0017) is moved into a launching tube, where it begins a psychic attack against Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance. This apparently unprovoked hostility, and the earlier video clip, seems to hint that the observed creature is none other than Dr. Breen in a new host body. There also remains the possibility that Breen is dead, and that the Advisor in the pod was merely the Advisor Breen was speaking to near the end of Half-Life 2. Both ideas are supported by the name of the file "AI_Advisor_Breen" inside the game's files. The game commentary included by Valve for the scene is noncommittal about what the creature actually is, and only reveals that what is happening in that particular room is an important setup for events in [COLOR=Black]Episode Two.[/COLOR]
As for the packet, it was supposed to be sent to other off-world Combine forces, so I can only assume that it is a message asking for reinforcements (more soldiers, stronger/new weapons such as the Hunter) Now that Alyx has intercepted it to give to Eli and Dr. Kleiner, they might use it to gain the advantage of new Combine technologies and prevent the arrival of more Combine forces.
The arrival of the Combine is inevitable, but they have the information and the time to prepare for another huge army. Is it possible that the serial number (14 URB-LOC 0017) means anything?
I hope episode 2 and 3 are longer... more action, more creatures.. more weapons.. different maps..
its getting to be a bit repetitive seeing those bage buildings again and again.. ...
The vortigaunts are on the humans side now, they where slaves to the Combine, but havent since HL2...
The only new thing i seen in HL2 Episode 1 was the Zombines.. thats it..
Ok i remember playing the HL2 Beta before a long time ago... and the Stalkers had lasers they shot out of their heads to attack you.. why didnt they implement that?
Anyways i hope Episode 2 comes along a little quicker..
I didn't make it!
I think the message was a "Destroy Earth" type since the combine where in total disarray and getting overpowered by the rebels.:runaway:Probably not though.
I don't know..I think you are right.
That would be pretty cool, Next episodes seeing the final Battle between us and the combine, they send all they've got to us...
I think that it would be more of a stupid "stop their cannon from firing before they blow-up earth!" or some other timed thing where you protect Earth.
Or you just go to the Combine home planet.
lol that would be pretty dumb.. But going to the combine planet would be cool....
but to do so, valve would have to make a load of new models.. and i dont know if their going to do that lol
