Escape the confines of City 17 and strike a blow for the resistance!

As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. Now, in Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.

Episode Two is the second of a planned trilogy of games that extends the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life adventure. Unique weapons, vehicles, and new creatures, friends, and enemies all make an appearance.

PART 1 - What about the video?
We were planning to show a gameplay video a day or two ago, but unfortunately didn't get enough time to get that done. We had finalized our new code for the mod and was ready for showing, but really it didn't seem much to show visually at the moment. Our new code includes three new original weapons, but since they really don't have their own models yet, it wouldn't be really much. Second of all, the map to be put together for the map wasn't really on our priority list. We still can maybe do a gameplay video, but that will be later.

PART 2 - New gameplay mechanics
Introducing new gameplay mechanics will definitely be something new to the mod. These new mechanics were done in the mod's code, although the differences don't seem much at the moment because of the lack of visual content (like said above). Although there is once new mechanic we are adding: cutscenes. These cutscenes will be played when the player walks into a trigger_cutscene on the map, creating a video overlay playing a video cutscene. The cutscenes are to be done to cut down on animating time for the characters (means using Source Filmmaker for the videos is easier than decompiling a Valve model and re-animating them in a program and putting them on a scripted sequence on the map). With that to be said, we still don't want to break the flow of gameplay with the cutscenes, so they will be animated to look like they are from the player's view, and won't look that much different from the main game. Discuss your opinions on this! We like feedback!

If Valve are going to make Half Life 2: Episode Three, they have got to make it full of revenge for Alyx's father. Like, to try and wipe the combine forces straight out of City 17, to make it a free city.

Then maybe a new threat?

This is just my opinion, so I'm not trying to make it be like that, but I would like it like that.

Indeed, the game was pretty good. Good dose sequences, although it is true, Gordon + Range + gun indoors WAS seriously getting old. I for one can not wait to get out of the first quarter of game that you spend it more underground.
Late onset, but improvements sufficient for me.

As for negative comments on the graphics: a virtual world where some want to reproduce perfectly the reality and can destroy anything, it means that we must be very full of complex ... idea is to know that it is still a game. Furthermore, the studios spend 80% of production during the engine, graphics and effects, it clearly will not offer the story, concept, cohesive atmosphere, gameplay elements so smart. That is exactly the key issues for a game.
I for one look at Far Cry 2 and Crysis + sigh ... no monsters as much as realism, graphics broken mouth ... starvation, but ... freakin 'classic shooters in the most boring way.
I have heard comments like that **** what about the Neverwinter Nights 2, we should take lessons from Dungeon Siege. It's like comparing chess with (respectively) plates.

You can say what you will about Gates and Episode 2, but remain one of the most "valid" producers play. And I wait for Episode 3. When it is. Next year 2 years 3. I'll play, no matter how stupid you look to other games 'realistic'. Because, think-Dacians bathrooms, one is to reproduce photographic reality it's another to have a design concept and art design that will serve to create an atmosphere of a universe, to tell an interesting story and to leave some questions as Small ago ... :-) :-)
