I played to the place when you are going to teleport.
Wait, damn I am still in the start of the game.
Actually last year I took a long weekend to play the entire Half Life series, to replay HL2 and to finish HL1, which I had never actually finished. I started Thursday after school, Finished HL1 on Friday, Finished Blue Shift later that night and finished Opposing Force on Saturday early afternoon, and then managed to finish HL2 by Sunday evening, and then Episode 1 was started straight after and I managed to finish it early Monday and then finally Episode 2 by Monday evening. Best Half Life marathon ever.
So I'm testing out my editting and uploading skills with Episode 1 and possible 2 before I do it with ep3/hl3 when it comes out
Here is what I have so far. It's meant to be raw video, death free, no voice, just game play in HD at the highest settings. There will be a few minor skips or 'jumps' but I'm doing my best to edit them out the best I can. So far, I'm really happy. Anyone else have any thoughts and opinions of what I should do when I upload more, and when I upload Ep3/HL3?
Note I'm NOT going to make a "Lets play" for the purpose of educational use about the game, so people can actually see genuine game play, no mods or anything silly like that. I'm also going to post a video containing all the best pictures of the game I've taken throughout the game (HD, auto snapped every 30 seconds by fraps).
So, at last, I finished Half-Life 2 again for the billionth time, but this time on hard (always played on normal). Those last fucking levels were rage inducing, and oh god how I wished that you could kill your squad members..
I think we should create a paypal account for the Steam group, everyone send money on it, and then we'll maybe have 10k $ and so we'll buy more than 1000 crowbars to send it to Valve.
Whatever they say will partialy ruin the announcement for me. If they say something like "It's coming soon" and then we get it announced a month later i will be slightly disapointed as we already knew it was close to the announcement, but if it just suddenly appears that would be great.
I bet you they disguised it as one of the railworks DLCs it's the perfect crime.
I've never had a problem with the friendly AI in this game, so when people complained of it being bad and all that I couldn't believe them. Well, that was before playing on hard. The fight against the two gunships before entering Nova Prospekt was insane, and those fucking antlions always kept getting in the way, and they couldn't kill soldiers for shit. I blasted those little buggers myself with the shotgun, couldn't be bothered to wait for them to move. HNGGGG. And the part where you extend the bridge on top of the nexus, you have to cross over it with soldiers coming form the other side (can't remember if it was an infinite wave, but they just kept coming so I pushed onwards). I had one fellow rebel in front of me, so it was difficult to advance, and then a combine soldier threw a grenade right under my feet. Instinctively, I tried to retreat, but something was blocking the way behind me. When I turned back, and as the shrapnel of the nade pierced my brain, and the fire burned my face, I swear I saw the fucking rebel blocking my way smiling gleefully. And then the screen turned red.
I realise this moment may not be the most convenient time for a heart-to-heart, but I had to wait until your... colleagues... heh... were otherwise occupied. Mm... There was a time they cared nothing for Half-Life, when their only experience of gaming was a space invader coming at them down from the top of a screen. When I played Half Life for the first time... heh... I acted in the face of objections that it was a mere Doom-clone and that it would not amount to anything. I have learned to ignore such naysayers when... hurting them... was out of the question. Still, I am not one to squander my investments and I remain confident it was worth far more than the initial appraisal. That's why I must now... extract... from you some small repayment owed for your own success. Tell us what you know about Half Life 3, Mr Newell. I wish I could do more than email you, but I can't afford to visit you... in person. Well... Now, listen carefully mate. When you next go... online... relay this information: the current status of Half Life 3."
So far, the only thing the HL CFC managed to achieve was to give a purpose in life to a bunch of nerdy freaks.
It should say if it was sent. If you get the captcha wrong, it won't tell you you got it wrong
Knowing Gabe, he's gonna reply with "The current status of Half-Life 3"
Okay, hear me out here.
The Superbowl has just started, right?
What if, during the ads, a Lambda appears, followed by a 3. You hear a familiar voice: "Doctor Freeeeemannnn..."
And then, nothing.
They don't show the Superbowl ads on BBC1, let me know if there's a massive HL3 reveal, internet.
just had a thought, and it's more of a general half-life thing than hl3 specific
how long does a resonance cascade last? i'm unsure as to whether or not the aliens continuing to teleport into the facility near the end of Half-Life was a result of the resonance cascade or if it was the nihilanth's doing. but if portals were still opening up in the deepest parts of the facility, are portals still opening and spitting out random xen creatures (and Race X creatures if Op:For is canon) in the ruins of Black Mesa even after it was nuked?
Or was this the same sort of thing as the missile launched in Episode 2, where the explosion neutralized the portals?
Taking part in RLD yesterday made me realize how spectacularly my reflexes have improved since HL2 first came out. I couldn't believe how fast I was snapping through CPs with the pistol.
Though, I think Obsidian Conflict turned me into a speedy bastard. I never bunny hopped before, but now I'm doing it nonstop.
I can't believe I'm still finding new stuff after 8 years of playing. Just found 3 hidden "item packs" (medkits and batteries) and a lambda cache that I've never seen before, all in water hazard, during the helicopter chase (which makes it difficult to explore, I found them fooling around in Garry's mod -yes, lame, I know-). And mind you, I'm still missing 5 lambda caches for the achievement, which I plan on finding without "cheating" again.
cast for half life 2 movie?
As sad as that would be, I would pay to see it.
Replaying HL2 has been really worth it.
I don't know how many people did this before, but it's a first for me: I abducted Dog's "ball" and made it my pet roller mine that now happily bounces around me in Ravenholm.
I did manage to watch the HL2 finale from Breen's chair, let's see for how long I can keep this little bugger around. It can explode, but it also follows me around unless I throw it at an enemy (which is an excellent distraction).
you also bring up the dumbest things
