Can someone PLEASE explain to me what the HELL I just saw in 'our benefactors'? It's probly been asked before, but, eh, things are kinda slow around here this morning. Any ideas on what that big slug thing wearing the mask was? Also, I just saw the John Carpenter Movie They Live before the last couple hours of the game, and the similarites between it and this game are downright unnerving. I mean, a people subjugated by an alien race who uses propaganda to bore into their minds and methods to blind them (TV, and Doctor Breen's water), who are stockpiling weapons and have a traitor in their midst. Of course, beyond that outline they are vastly different, but I'd like to think that ol' Gabe was at least thinking of this movie when HL2 development began.

Breen is to humans as the Advisor is to Combine.

It's on a screen at the start when the teleporter goes wrong and it's also on a screen near the end when you're chasing Breen. He talks to it on a big screeny thing.

No, I don't think that their heads are big slugs with robot bodies. If you look carefully in the Nova Prospekt level, you'll find a monitor near the end that shows a Combine soldier lying on a table, stripped of his mask, and upper clothes. He has a weird black nozzle where a mouth would normally be (mask interface?) and he's pasty white, with a pretty creepy looking face. I think that they must somehow alter atleast some humans to create their police forces and such on Earth. Maybe they harness a planet's local population to fill out jobs so the actual Combine (I forget what they call themselves... Commenwelth, or United something...) can do government roles or something.
