On the other hand, perhaps even Overwatch has little of human, in them? Perhaps, just to torture themselves, though.
    I don't think so, while Breen may have saved humanity by arranging Earth's surrender, he's obviously corrupt, and if you pay attention to his speech at the end of HL2, he said he was planning to use Eli as a bargaining chip to manipulate the Combine Advisors, so I think it's pretty obvious the guy had his own agenda.

    Also it appears he's aware of the existence of the G-Man.

    I remember reading that the normal headcrab zombies still have the human consciousness, unable to do anything except suffer while the headcrab controls the now mutated body like a puppet. The fast zombies tear out their skin and most of their flesh due to their itchy feeling they can't get rid of. Kind of like how that one spot on your back you can't reach starts to itch, it drives you crazy? The fast zombies have a similar feeling, but multiplied by a thousand times, so they rip their fucking skin out to feel at ease, even at the cost of immeasurable pain. That's why they're so hyper all the time, to desperately try and get rid of that itch all over their body. Fast zombies probably also have the conscious human mind, but when a fast zombie has finished ripping itself apart they're probably so insane they can't be called human anymore. Poison zombies on the other hand, I have no idea. Probably must be painful to walk around with so many parasites leeching on you and that hunched back, not to mention being without skin.

    Zombines are probably the only ones without the host's consciousness intact since the headcrabs dissolve the Combine's head entirely.

    Wow, valve really enjoyed placing creepy shit in the game's sound files. I was browsing the HL2 Leak's sounds again, and I found another unsettling music track labelled as "outside_lighthouse_amb.wav" in addition to the other one I posted a while back.

    When you undergo the surgery to become a transhuman combine soldier many things are added and taken away from the body. The head becomes host to multiple electronic devices and the brain gets moved to the stomach area as you no longer digest anything but instead receive injections that go directly into your blood stream. I'm pretty sure this stuff was in raising the bar. Anyways the spinal cord is still intact from the head and downwards so as the headcrabs latch on to the soldier they pretty much dig through the head and reach the spinal cord in order to control the soldiers body.

    Wouldn't having the brain all the way down there slow their reaction time?

    I believe vital electronic components were stored in the head.

    They're synthetic electronics like all the ones found in the synth war machines, like the dropship or the crab synth or the striders.

    I'm unsure, but then again they implant neural enhancements anyways so maybe the spacial management is necessary.

    This image is pretty important as you can see all the areas that they operate and most of what they add and take away.



    That and this graffiti, while it may not be accurate shows some "inner-workings" of a transhuman soldiers head. Its also one of my favourite of the resistance graffiti.

    But now come the age old questions. What happens to the heads of the combine once a headcrab has latched onto them? Do they eat and digest the parts and electronics inside? If so, how is the infested soldier still speaking? Is he still partially alive and aware of what's going on? Is he trying to warn fellow soldiers of danger or is the tech inside him simply replaying audio of things he said before death, like a black box?

    God dammit VALVe, only you could make such a deep character out of a common zombie.

    I didn't really find it fun, although I enjoyed how challenging (much more than the other enemies) they were. Still, fighting something that doesn't react to gunfire dynamically enough (gravity gun strikes don't coun't) isn't that fun. They should flinch a lot more when hit by bullets etc.
    I used to be really frustrated fighting the hunters, for that specific reason. They were the worst type of design, a highly mobile and highly damaging enemy that takes a stupid amount of bullets to kill.

    But that was before I noticed the tires. I picked one up to block the needle things it shoots at you, then shot it right back at him. Took me so many play-throughs to figure that out. I've now decided they are an excellently designed enemy.

    Yeah well then why do Striders and Gunships shoot sparks around when they die or are badly damaged, but the Overwatch troopers don't? And if the electronics are synthetic, shouldn't we see white, Hunter-ish liquids spurting out instead of red human blood?

    I for one , think that they are a well designed and EXCITING enemy, it will scare you to DEATH ,bro. It follows you around , kicks down doors , shoot explosive energy needles . ALMOST LIKE THE GEKKO FROM MGS4.

    The Overwatch soldiers haven't been around nearly as long as the striders and the gun ships. New anatomy calls for new synth designs, which calls for some playing around before getting a finalized design. If you ask me though, I don't see how the overwatch soldier is any better than a normal person with lots of hardware strapped to them.

    They're (supposedly) mindless and follow their orders no matter the cost.

    I say supposedly because sometimes you can hear them curse or express anger, so there's obviously some human left in there. You can even hear a zombine say "shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit"



    On topic, I always thought the lady speaking over the intercoms in the city, giving reminders to metropolice and citizens was super creepy. She was probably automated, maybe even an A.I. although she could just be creepy sounding like gman. But I still like to imagine some girl behind a massive screen of monitors, with wires hooked to her head, watching everything. Even watching from the City Scanners. Shes even voiced by Ellen McLain, so go figure.
    And especially when she addresses you as "anticitizen one" and even offers rewards to citizens who give information on you or the resistance.

    "Mission failure will result in...PERMANENT off-world reassignment" Whatever that is, it can't be good.

    Imagine you're trapped in this room hearing nothing but the audio in this video.
    I took a go at it, listen to mine. I don't wanna brag, but I think I might have made mine sound better. It gets a little loud, though.


    EDIT: I don't know why I put on the last bit; I dont remember editing it into the video...

    They're synthetic electronics, they are made of some sort of organic substance and require blood to work, just like our organs in our body. Hunters are a modified species of some sort of alien, their blood may very well be a different colour than humans. As for the reason there are no sparks its because from what I know, electronics don't catch fire or explode violently when you riddle them with bullets. However its probably a different story when you use explosive weapons to on them, the only means you can actually kill a strider, gunship or dropship. (Aside from the hunter choppers guns which fire some sort of plasma bullet, which is very hot and probably could cause conflagration. ) Another thing is that I would figure that the warmachines require bigger electronic parts to work. So the chance of noticeable wiring's breaking and sparking would be more noticeable.

    That being said, the process to become a transhuman or synthetic species must be horrifying. Also most of the warmachines seem to be of the same crablike species. Which means the Combine probably enslaved them and forced them into service.
