No, no replacing the old textures, only adding new ones.
The textures of the game is one of the elements that makes the game special and gives the game its atmosphere.
What I'm saying is that I don't want a drastic art style change like the one from Portal 1 to Portal 2.
to me, its one of the few sci fi games that you just find unique for its mixture of real world and sci fi elements
and i highly doubt valve would change the art style for the half-life games
Because I was lazy to shade.
Is it just me that finds it weird that they come out with a new Gordon Freeman action figure almost 5 years after the previous release of the series?
Someone buy it I bet it has a key that releases Half-Life 3 without any marketing, ensuring that the game gets bad sales even though the community is strong enough to carry it but people still think that Valve is just going to get bored and release the game one day run-on sentence.
Wow the action figure is cheap! [Calculate shipping] Oh well never mid.... Its sad when the shipping is twice the cost of the product.
this image, a grievous sin has been committed by Neca: they forgot to include our hero's signature ponytail. This is an outrage and a true disservice to the character. I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder!
gordon doesn't have a ponytail and he never did
Yeah in HL2 art he has never been shown to have a ponytail, and the figurine is from HL2. Not sure about HL1 but I'm sure he didn't have one then either.
But on that note, you might notice that all official Half-Life 2 artwork quite conspicuously depicts Gordon from the front. Why would they go to so much trouble to hide his rear, you ask? Well, I theorize that Valve has been hiding the back of his head all this time so as to eventually include a dramatic reveal in the series' climactic moments of his long concealed ponytail which, since it's been about a decade according to the canon, has likely grown into a magnificent foot long flowing mane by now. That's right, don't hide your optimism, because it's a virtually guaranteed bet in Half-Life 3 that we'll see the glorious return of Gordon's backside and his 12-inch wonder!
Max, max, max...
The ponytail isn't canon.
"The ponytail isn't canon?!" shouted Marphy Black. "Bullshit! That twelve-footer whipped the SHIT out of the Nihilianith...Nihilist...Nihiliheideggerwhateverth efuck."
"Avast, ye malcontent Hammer Legion Member!" cackled Marc Laidlaw, bursting forth in a golden explosion of turrets and pink cookies. "Thou art full of folically challenged theories as though thou were betwixt choosing between thy butter and thy buttery spread! It is meaningless and inconsequential within the grande designs of mine worlds!"
"No!" cried Black in a fit of despair. "How can you, creator of the Half-Life story, be so certain that The One Free Man does not have The One Free Ponytail!?"
"Because," said Laidlaw with a sneering grin. "The Combine Overwiki says so."
Entering firstperson in the console in the original Half-Life reveals that Gordon does indeed have a ponytail in the original Half-Life game.
We never see the back of his head in HL2 art, for all we know he could still have it.
I've seen fans argue about some stupid things before, but at least i never saw the Trekkies and Warsies debate the canon status of a character's 5 polygon ponytail.
But the solution is simple. The G-Man cut Gordon's ponytail off before he put him on the City 17 train so he would blend in better with the other citizens who all have short hair. The end.
In HL, his hair seems to be much longer than HL2
Notice that his hairstyle has changed in HL2.
So I doubt that in HL2 he has a ponytail.
Hey, it's the 90's.
It kind of saddens me that valve put in commands like thirdperson into the console, but you don't get a nice gordon to look at any more :(
