I got an Idea, why don't they have Gorden go back to Black Messa and find more things for the story like research docs for the scientist or have it where he time portals to messa and has to reverse things back to the old wyas and close the chapter.

Their is so many possibilities but where to start.

Going back to Black messa would be the logiical thing to do to close this story and we can see what black messa would look like under the new engine even if its ****ed up from HL1, i would be nice to see.

Lets help them out: See if you guys have any ideas.

This is real crappy if they are just NOW starting to think of ideas for HL EP3. We won't see this until 2011, by then what will be different?

The Saga continues...

Valve uses a Cabal methodology for producing games and storyline. As such not everything is worked out before hand, and it gives them the flexibility to review the work and fix things that simply suck.

Back when Valve was working on ep1, they had designed a significant amount of content based upon the ship Aurora. But at the time they ran it through their cabal and decided it sucked, and re-worked it to the city 17 plot.

**** i forgot damn.

That blows that idea. This is tough, they could do a city 17 run through again but that got blown up in HL2 E1.

Got any ideas guys?

i just cant get over how they brough aperture science into the mix in episode2. I know thats the company that made the "portal gun". So i am guessing it is their "portal" technology which is what the citadel "was" the basis for. Loving every single HL2 game. :D

in EP3 Gordon will go to that ship, get that portal gun. Thats pretty much a given.

I never did get those episodes for PC after reading reviews on ep1.

I did pickup the orange box for 360 not that long ago, and played thro in sequence, Hl2 is longer then I remember it to be on pc. Good example of how games should be, long :)
Developers should follow this example.

Ep1 very short, but I knew this, my impression was still.. "Dang ... it _is_ short" after finishing it.

Ep2. ... "Baaah!! this is just as short!" after finishing it ... All this wait for this little content ... bleh..

I did, I'm just drawing a blank. I know "he" dies (don't want to spoil it for those that haven't played it through)... and isn't that it? I don't recall any mention of a ship.

Okay, so what about the ship? Was that mentioned afterwards? Or before his death?

QFT. I gave up on it a long time ago. I haven't even touched the game for years now.

My idea for the ep3 plot:

Gordon realises that he's a tired, old video game concept and retires to working the front bar at a lesbian strip club. Alyx gets into trouble with bad debts and a heroin(e) addiction, so she comes to Gordon pleading for him to ask the boss of the strip club if he can get her a job. Alyx starts work as a stripper but none of the clients like her, because although she had an amazing face 5 years ago now she's really ugly compared to all the Korean girls from Crysis and the Russian girls that came from COD4. Infact even Master Cheif's wife from Halo 3 looks alot better than her now.

Eventually Gordon convinces Valve that they've sucked every last ounce of life out of him and the gang and eventually they leave him in peace.

The end.

Actually, my mole tells me that, Gordon flies to the ship, but just as he gets there, the helicopter crashes, he lands on an opposite side of some big obstacle and there's 5-8hrs of game play of you repeatably getting close to the ship, then more obstacles appear to stop you, it ends with a giant fight, where Gordon rides ecco the dolphin, battling jaws for a golden ticket to Hollywood.
