No Changes for Gordon Freeman

Computer and Video Games quotes Valve's Gabe Newell saying there is no plan to alter the Gordon Freeman character for the presumed eventual release of Half-Life 2: Episode Three, Half-Life 3, LEGO: Half-Life, or whatever project will eventually see the return of the beloved geek protagonist. "We haven't had a reason to change that. Most of what I've seen to date has been gimmicky and is entertaining for just a minute or so," he says, adding thoughts on giving the normally silent Gordon a voice: "We're not philosophically opposed to this, but we don't have any good reasons to do it. Right now making your companions more interesting and compelling seems a more fruitful avenue to explore."

Half-Life 3 and Lego Half-Life had better be 2 separate games or I'll drive to Bellevue, WA. and burn down Gabe Newell's favorite fried chicken joint.

While I'm really running short on patience with Valve waiting for any kind of info whatsoever on the HL3, I'm sure all will be forgiven when I finally play it. If I can forgive Valve for the mess of Steam and audio glitches that turned HL2 into a slideshow for weeks after release, I am sure I could forgive pretty much anything as far as Half-Life goes.

This might be a bit rude, but I hope the Valve falls flat on their faces and never manage to release another game again. They screwed us all with their frikin episodic gaming and can kiss my ass if they think I'll ever buy another one of their games. "Oh, We're going to release a new episode every 6 months!" Lies! Valve = FAIL in my opinion. Half-Life series is dead to me.

You sound like the guys who threaten to quit WoW on the forums everytime they nerf [insert class here], but never actually do.

Ugh, could you imagine?

Die headcrab, die!

But wait...before we kill this headcrab, let's talk about the type of crowbar to use today. And though often neglected, we'll make sure we have an anti-blood coating as originally designed by Prasanth, the lesser known of the four Nihilanth brothers. But fret not for he spent the latter part of the 30th century studying....

After falling in love with the Freeman's Mind series there is simply no other voice that would suit Mr. Freeman.

I'm hoping they keep him mute in hopes that Ross Scott will continue his brilliance into Half-Life 2 and all of the episodes.

I would argue that actually MAKING a new Half Life game would be the most fruitful avenue to explore.

As for giving Gordon a voice, eh, why bother now? He's the world's only scientist who never asks anybody any questions, even if he awakes in a world which is under the iron fist of an alien race.

If they DO give the Freeman a set of vocal chords, I can think of none more geektastically accurate than those of nerd cook extraordinaire Alton Brown!

Interesting that Valve is starting to talk about Freeman now.

HL3 must be coming really soon now, it seems.

I'm thinking that Portal 2 might lead nicely into Ep3/HL3. Maybe I'm just being optimistic here, but I really want some completion to the HL saga rather than it getting Broussard'd.

I know Portal 2 is set in the future, but if there's not some crazy twist involved in that then they're doing it wrong.

Gordon is fine, but he needs a wonder dog parter named Hudson...
Maybe fighting an evil computer named UGO.

Yeah, nin is right, that would have been a great April Fool's joke. I just started playing through HL1/2 again and it's still good times. Bring on HL3!

Oh, hello, Gordon.

Sarcastic? Moi?

No, there are no actual plans I'm aware of for LEGO Half-Life.


You shoulda used that last Thursday.

Was that actually announced (I don't remember it, if it was) or just sarcasm on Blue's part? I admit, the lego series seems to have jumped the shark awhile back...

interesting indeed if they include the entire series in the lego game.

Yeah, if they featured the vehicle sections in, it might be good...
