well i havent played much of half life 1, so i have no idea what is happening. questions: Who is G-Man? The Game is set in Russia right? ( russian writing on buildings, and the buildings look russian ) Why do the marines make a search for u? Why are there Cameras everywhere?? Why are there aliens walking among the people, and it is fine, while in the last game the people killed those aliens? Why are there weird alien looking vehicles? Why is everyone trying to hide? How come the marines beat people,this game reminds me of the book i read in english class called 1984.. sorry for the ignorance, but i have no idea what is happening. Also tell me more about Gordon Freeman, and who he is, etc. Thanks guys, try doing that without mega spoilers :cya: :p
Try playing half-life 1 or half-life 1 source. It is still a great game compared to many games out today. It will bring you more into the story line. Except alot of things in Half-Life 2 are different from #1. in half-life 1 there were no combine soldiers. There werent very civilized looking aliens. In half-life 1 you really dont get a good explanation of who g-man is. You occasionally see him walking around but its impossible to catch up with him. And i'm not sure if the game is in russia. I think it's just the look they were going for. post WW2 european style buildings is what i think they said. And Gordon freeman is who you are playing as. He is a big head leader guy in the resistance against the aliens invading city 17. Hope this helped a little. Personally i havent gotten into SP either. Dont have time till the weekend. CS:S will hold me till then. IT ROCKS!
ok im scared, what is city-17, and why did gordon take a train there?? and do i have half life source?? if i dont, where do i get it?
You have to have bought the CE from the retail stores, or buy the Silver/Gold package from Steam. The standard retail and Bronze package does NOT come with Half-Life:Source.
i dunno what i have, i walked into the store, and got the box with g-man on it.. on the back it says 'also includes: counter strike: Source" i guess i dont have it.. can anyoen post screens of that?

ive heard rumors that the G-man IS gordon freeman....but nothing is confirmed.....
g-man doesnt look like gordon, and even if gordon was to get old, still the face structure doesnt loojk like gordons.. i hope u are wrong.. because if u are not, then we just got MAJOR spoiled.. i dont think i have ever been that majorly spoiled before.. i just pray its wrong.. if one of u guys know for sure that it is not true, just tell me, and if it is true, dont say anything
Here's a stupid question. What is Half Life:Source? Is it Half Life 1, but with the new engine of Half Life 2 (i.e. better graphics)?

A few facts.
The combine invaded earth after being attracted to it because of the first games teleportation machine causing surges in the atmos.. Earth was invaded and overrun and taken by suprise, and was surrendered by the man you see with short white hair and a beard, who now works as a slave for the combine, and talks to the remaining human populous of city 17 through a network of montitors on a repeated message. The remaining humans were allowed to co-exist with the invaders (the combine), who now seem to rule the place, and treat the humans like dirt.
G-Man is mysterious Agent who probably represents an unknown Government. His speech unpredictabley speeds up and slows down -as if he is unfomfortable with human speech. You work for him in half-life 2 it seems.
The cameras that float about harass the people of City 17 (and you) and feed back photos, and probably live video to the the combine HQ. They keep an eye on everyone in other words.
The aliens are now allied with the citizens of earth, and the black mesa. They are a slave race who want freedom like the people of city 17 since they came to earth.
The alien vehicles belong to the combine..don't ask me..no one knows..
Gordan freeman.......find out for yourself you lazy sod =P
