warning spoilers: i got this off a steam forum:

in half-life 2, you battle the combine soldiers (half humans combined with xen alien dna) created by the g man. seems that black mesa was all a planned effort by him so you were supposed to conquer xen and take their dna. but the combine wreak havoc in city 17 and you are sent by the g man to clean up the mess but u soon join the resistance: alyx, eli, kleiner, calhoun, etc to fight the combine ( i believe ur supposed to betray the g man)

Yeah I read that also. Its a good theory and all, but I doubt it's the "leaked" story for Half-life 2.

I could be close to the truth, but I think some fan made it up. Plus there is no proof that its real. Only time will tell. If that thread is not taken down in the next few hours, then I doubt its real.

But its a good story/ theory.

to be honest i think that is a load of rubbish

the set up in Half-Life was so the G-Man could see if Freeman was up to the task of joining his operations.

the Combine soldiers arent manufactured by the G-Man, they are what comes from the new alien race combining with soldiers, yes, but not by man, but by nature.

in so many of the previews on HL2, many have said that the Combine are taking over the world, and due to this, people and aliens aer adapting to each others technology.

and from what i believe, you start off with the resistance anyways

and to top it all, whoever said that must be lyinh cos Vivendi/Valve have given NOTHING about the storyline away, so anything that comes out is untrue, unless Valve have said it themselves

08-26-2003, 11:32 AM
yep, lots of times

there are two endings to Half-Life,

the first sees Gordan rejecting the G-Mans offer of work (you dont go through the teleporter) and you end up in a pit full of aliens and are presumed to be killed

the second sees Freeman taking up the G-Mans offer and stepping into a portal, with the G-Man sayin something like "A wise choice Mr. Freeman".

some say it is a let down. i personally feel that as one of the best games ever, Half-Life also has one of the best endings ever as well

well thats an impossibility, considering that in one of the endings, you DIE

HL2 is to assume that you take up the G-Mans offer

there is some speculation that Shephard will return, despite being imprisoned at the end

absolutely anything

it would surprise me if you got to fight a giant donkey, and even then it would still be the best game ever!

the first game blew me away, every aspect just took me by surprise

and that hasnt happened in a long time

not since i broke Spinnaker's stick, that is

well, so far the rocket launcher, shotgun and MP5 are back, as well as a pistol (dont know what make)

that gravity gun is also going to be in the game, as well as more machine guns, shotguns, sniper-rifles and a grenade launcher (i think), some very cool alien bio-weapons as well.

and i believe a knife, crowbar and wrench are to come back as well

one thing i noticed in the demo was that at one point Freeman throws down his shotgun and picks up a rocket launcher

this suggests that you can only carry a limited arsenal (something Halo has made a necessity)

nope, same old joe friday as far as i know

he;s not like the Master Chief or Samus

he is just a scientist, which is why it worked so well

and remember that in the first one he could carry the following all at once:

Crowbar
Pistol
Magnum
Shotgun
MP5
Crossbow
Rocket Launcher
Alien Weapon
Another Alien Weapon
ANOTHER Alien Weapon
Satchel Charges
Snarks
Wall Mines
Grenades

that was in Op For

never used it much unless it was to teleport those horrible yellow things that fired purple electricity at you and exploded with a big bang

also, if you ever teleported yourself, you always ended up in the Hazard Course

thats in co-op mode

i mean in single player mode when you play as Freeman

the PC version is still better but only cos it came out WAY before the PS2 was even being planned

and yes, the only FPS that i think is just as good as, or even better than Halo or Marathon is Half-Life and its add-on packs, they are just pure class

CS is full of cheaters. It's why I stopped playing, and also why I stopped playing Diablo I & II.

Only play Warcraft III sometimes now.


And Blood was one of the best FPS games I've ever played, great stuff for its time.
