The World of Half-Life is Humongous.

Holy shit. Just when I thought the concept was about a bad-ass scientist murdering some aliens and soldiers,  then meeting up with a rebel alliance to murder even more aliens and soldiers. But in the process of that, he meets a blue-suited dude that tells the bad-ass scientist that he's useful and that he's a great employee.
YOU TRIGGERD MAH TRAP CARD!

I played Half-Life1. I know the concept of that story was based on Area51-ish government conspiracies. But seriously; just the whole concept that you, a lone scientist, accidentally ripped the fabric of the space-time continuum, unleashing a force far greater then any other being in any other universe has ever known, is enslaving Humanity; and we are not the only species that has been enslaved in the multiverses...

And you must stop the multiverse's enslavers with a fucking crowbar.

Genius.

According to the Combine article, the main enslavers of Humanity are those slug things. Now that you closed the rim between our universe and their universe in Half-Life2: Episode2, the slugs are angry and they want to kill you and open the portal again, continuing the enslavement of Humanity and many other universes to come.

Episode3, you're going to fucking end it. You're going to see what the Gman wants and stop the greatest force in the history of existence...

Yet again, with a crowbar.

Genius.

No you won't. They will drag it out to HALF LIFE 3.

Sorry, but that card is not a trap card, but a Magic Card.
The memories of that shitty card game that sucks ass :)

It is a very big world, and to say that a character from Portal is going to make an appearance in Episode Three makes it even bigger.

Didn't read because I have yet to finish Half-life 2 and its episodes.

I'm loving them though.

Was it confirmed that Left 4 Dead is part of the universe?  I didn't think it was possible/feasible to incorporate a zombie apocalypse at some point in the Half-Life mythos.  I also thought Valve, at some time or another, had ruled it non-canon.

L4D and TF2 are both stand alone and have no relation to the HL universe. But yes, Half life is awesome and has a really great mythos, but no, I doubt anything super huge will be concluded in episode 3, at least I hope, because I want a hl3. Even if some big thing is concluded, there will still be more most likely to have to figure out, and ever learning the true intentions and just what/who the G-Man really is, will definitely not be answered in episode 3, I would pretty much guarantee it.

Huh...I always thought GF's crowbar was more of a monster card....

But yeah, I love following that Half Life lore. I think it's one of the most interesting Video Game stories out there!
