    Maybe I should order a Freeman statue to go with my Combustible Lemon cup.

    What a shitty page king.

    You want a Gordon Freeman statue to go with your cup? Seems a bit overkill just for a life size mug holder.

    Wouldn't be the first time someone's stolen from Valve. They never do anything about it so people know they can just take their textures and models.

    That's how nice Valve is.
    Remember that rubber duck with HL2 guns on it?

    In the Team Fortress update there was this image:



    It's named crsk9.jpg, CRSK was an equip region in TF2 that has since been removed. In one of the TF2 schema updates prior to MvM this text was added:

    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_GLaDOS
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_Wheatly
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_ATLAS
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_PBody
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_CCube
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_DOG
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_RZOEY

    Portal, Half-life, and Left 4 Dead references all made in one TF2 update. I believe that these references coincide with a future Valve "box" release. These references were likely TF2 cosmetic items that were related to an ARG type release. The MvM update was probably intended to be the start of such an ARG, however due to Valve's unreliable / unpredictable development process this plan was likely scrapped and MvM released on its own.

    We knew about the matchmaking text and the equipe region, but not the recipe.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it was part of the MvM ARG?

    Speaking of which, anyone know when they're supposed to ship? I pre-ordered mine back in the summer on Entertainment Earth, and they said they'd come in September. It's October, and still nothing. Anyone know how much longer I might have to wait?
    They were supposed to show up on the 17th, but I got emailed this on the 14th:

    Thank you for your recent Play.com order for Valve Half Life Gordon Freeman 7 inch Scale Figure

    We have recently been informed by the manufacturer of this product that the release date has been changed to 21-Sep-2012. We have updated this information on site and will endeavour to process your order in readiness to arrive with you on the release date.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused to you in this matter and thank you for your patience and valued custom.
    Followed swiftly by this on the 15th:

    Now watch as everyone hopelessly scours for more information they think will lead to an ARG that doesn't exist, only for them to find jack shit then become disappointed again.

    Alyx: Now let me call Dog. He loves to play fetch.

    Alyx: Dog! Come!

    Gordon: Uh, what's that big thing barreling towards us? Oh shit. Oh shit! OH SHIT!

    Alyx: Gordon, this is Dog. My dad built him to protect me when I was a kid.

    Gordon: THIS is "Dog?!" This isn't a "dog," it's a f*cking gorilla!

    There were more strings such as:
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_TFH
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_VICI
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_EpsilonPyro
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_EpsilonEngi
    TF_Matchmaking_TOBOR_CRSK_PJoe

    It's very likely a thing that used to be in MVM, but was taken out eventually, and towards a later part of the development. Why they would use CRSK in the arg, it doesn't seem to have any reason other than a reference.
    Could also be something that's still in the game but all connections to "CRSK" are gone.

    Everything fits right now...
    Back in August Valve had HL3 in the list of games they will show at "gamescom" but they changed it in the last moment, and the gamescom was in the exact day of the MVM update... I think there was meant to be an ARG but it was cancelled at the last moment.

    I just tought of something while playing hl2 again. In the beginning of the game you are walking around the city before getting your HEV suit. What clothes is gordon wearing? Is he wearing blue citizen clothes just like everybody else? If so how did he change clothes. Is he wearing his lab coat from black mesa or just random clothing? But then why doesnt he look suspicious to everyone else and how did he get the random clothing? Is he naked?

    This came up a while ago. He's wearing a blue jumpsuit to blend in, most likely given to him by the G-man.

    Nothing, because he is a floating camera without body

    The first time I played through, I heard the line as "Get him out of his skivvies", and did a double take. That's a big part of why I turn the captions on now.

    Off topic, but whatever happened to the 'Mind fuckery in Valve games' thread?
    For a while it was a pretty popular thread, but I haven't seen head nor tail of it for a while.
