    Apparently some people theorize about the Combine having control over Xen. How would that work though? The G-Man's employers had control of Xen at the end of HL1, and if the G-Man was a representative of the Combine, he would just kill Freeman. On top of that, if the Combine had Xen, they would have developed local space teleportation technology from the portals just strewn all over Xen and the technology that Black Mesa's survey teams brought to Xen before the resonance cascade. They also would have probably converted at least one or two of the intelligent species inhabiting Xen (Eg, Alien Controllers, Alien Grunts) to be included in their arsenal of weaponized species.

    Portal leak drama

    December 8, 2017 by THEJJRAT

    Portal Beta files have been tossed by the community a lot. On June 21st someone leaked a previously unreleased restoration mod of the original Portal beta on the Facepunch forums; The leaked beta contained the whole 2006 Portal Campaign (All test chambers and escape battle) and one map from 2005 which was lab_lvl3a.

    'Project Beta Group', members of Facepunch's Half-Life/Source modding

      A playable build with this content was given to ValveNewsNetwork to make a video about the history of Portal's development. In June 2006 VNN, without prior permission of the Project-Beta team shared the assets given to him with other users in the leak community, ultimately resulting in the content being leaked on Facepunch Studios and t…

    It had been several months since the battle. Penile Steak, the Combine shotgunner, had fallen in love with Adrian, the falling in love event mutual and transcending the poop barrier. They were cuddling on the couch, while the moose kids starved to death as they locked themselves in the moose room on accident. The Combine soldier was so big and strong, like headcrab guts, and it comforted Adrian to be in the soldier's warm, thick arms.

    Suddenly, Charles Stiles from Mystery Diners enter the cabin, and brutally murders Adrian's cactus. "i've placed a camera in your mother" Charles said, laughing like a cruel being in the tendencies of which are known in the raccoon mouse. "mY CACTUS YOU SICK FOK" screamed Adrian, breaking into tears as Penile …

    It had been two years since Adrian had found, saved, and mated with an eated moose (in that order). They had glorious little moose babies, one with a gas mask head with Adrian's eyes. They lived in a log cabin near White Forest, where Adrian was cooking from breakfast for his moose family. He cracked open some eggs and dropped them into a steel pan, drizzling some olive oil and kosher salt all over them. He hummed the tune of Sweet Home Alabama as he flipped them eggs like Duke Nukem flips some nukems. His moose husband was still half eated, and for good reason, because he was eated by a combine soldier. Who was diddly darn dead in the dirt. Adrian did respectfully bury him and his comrades behind the cabin, since they didn't choose to joi…

    Gravity Gun bug

    September 8, 2017 by Khitrish Mapping

    In HL2, you can grab and drop an object quickly with the gravity gun, and you can get it to be picked up, without the gravity gun in its OPEN state, it looks as though it just didn't try to trigger the animation. Weird isn't it?

    I've been wondering about this for a while, and from what I've seen, it's anywhere from 20 years - 50000 years. I think 200 years seems good, but the state of the relaxation chamber seems a bit good for 200 years. The same thing goes for paper and wood. And what about Chell's clothing? I'd like to hear what you think, and why.

    Hello guys, I am Pileofdoodoo here. I just looked at Mod DB that they are making a Half-Life for iOS. It will take a long time for them because of the testing they need, and also that this game runs on Unity 3D. But soon, when it comes out, I hope it will have millions of downloads, multiplayer and a mod loader. Link:

    Update #1: I am thinking of the four other games like Counter-Strike, Team Fortress Classic, Opposing Force, and Blue Shift.

    Based on the Half Life chapter Forget About Freeman, it says that there's a map removed from the game called "c4a1 ele". Is it a map used in the older versions of the game wether beta or alpha? Or maybe removed because of revisions and stuffs like that? If got information or anything about this please tell me.

    Hey Half-Life fans!

    We recently sat down for a chat with game designer/writer Chris Avellone, and talked about the specifics of making a game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Well known for his work on Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Knights of the Old Republic II , and Baldur's Gate among many others, he's an authority on what it takes to make a wasteland both scary and appealing. We cover a wide range of games during the discussion, including the Half-Life series, so make sure to check out our Expert Showcase discussion with him below!

Also, I now have a lot of prop from Portal2, but how?, Portal2 engine isn't the same engine of Gmod (Half-Life 2 engine).

    New wiki name

    January 28, 2013 by Deckard8t88

    Hi all!

    I'm Deckard8t88, recently appointed admin here. My aim is to do a much needed cleanup around the wiki, and refine the the site's focus.

    I'd also like to change the wiki's name to give it a more "personal" touch, and so that we actually "take over" it since the wiki's name is a by default one chosen by somebody else. So I'd like to hear your opinion on this. I have some names that went through my mind. You can vote for one of them, or submit your own! After a few days we'll see what has been decided!

    • Zombine UnderWiki (Some sort of opposite of the previous name, Combine OverWiki)
    • Magnusson's Encyclopedia (Sounds serious and reliable!)

    • Sector D (The administration/archives BMRF sector, would suit the w…

    Exploring one of the levels using the Noclip cheat, I decided to pop behind a wall panel that was sticking out. It's not part of the level, and there is no portal surfaces. You wont get there without no clip. Behind the panel, On the wall, I found this."This thing is like seeing, Only not with my eyes"

    Very creepy message. Who left it there? Thoughts? Comments?

    Quick Question.

    January 16, 2013 by Zombiehunter115

    Hello, my name is Zombiehunter115, although you may call me ZH. I'm new here. Like, this blog is my first edit. I love the games Valve has made, but I don't intend on staying (mostly because Valve can't count higher than 2). I noticed that, dispite it being called the "Half-Life Wiki", some things for Portal were on here as well. So, forgive me if I'm wrong, I took up the asumption that ALL Valve things are on here. Again, forgive me if I'm wrong. What I am wondering is if you have a strict policy on fan fiction. Or if there's a Wikia made for Valve fan fiction. Because, I have a Portal 3 fan fiction that I'm itching to share. Please get back to me on this, and again. Sorry if I sound stupid for even THINKING of this. I just kn…

    Half-Life 3 @ Gamescon?

    August 14, 2012 by KATANAGOD

    Half-Life 3 will appear at Gamescom, according to a PDF list of videogames found on the show's website. T3 Online was the first to spot the inclusion of Half-Life 3 on the list, the game being the only one to be revealed by Valve at the show. The PDF clearly states Half-Life 3 but Gamescom's list does not that it takes 'no responsibility' for the accuracy of the information of the information, admitting that it is gathered from forums and blogs. Still a slightly odd stance from an official show. TechRadar spoke to Mike Sawh, the journalist that spotted the inclusion, who said about the find: "I was simply searching around for assets on the official Gamescom website in preparation for T3's coverage of the gaming expo, and spotted the list o…

    I have an actual GAME DISC of the Dreamcast HALF-LIFE that can play on ANY Dreamcast!!

    Is this an alpha, beta, final prototype, or some unique copy of the Game? Is there anyone that any information on what this is that is NOT speculation?

    I have been a gamer for over 30 years and collected vintage game systems and games for about 20 years now. During the years 2002-2006, I was really into collecting all things Dreamcast. In my pursuit of all things Dreamcast, I came across the opportunity to buy HALF-LIFE for the Dreamcast! I was told it was a fully playable in any system. For a nominal fee, which I will not disclose, I could get this game. So I bit the bullet and bought thinking that the odds were fairly high it wouldn't play at all, but …

    There hasn't been any clear idea on the story of half-life 2 episode 3(other than you might fight an advisor). This is just an idea on what I think it could be. It starts at Eli Vance funerall. It goes along like most funerals, and it transitions to 5 years later, and the advisor that killed Eli got all of his knowledge and spilled the beans to the rest of the combine, so the resistance was falling apart. A group of vortigaunts gathered some crystals from xen and they think it could be their last hope against the combine. They activate it, but then lammar started making a sound that sounded like growling. Kleiner and barney realise that something's wrong. Before gordon could do anything, the crystals did the unthinkable... They resurrected…
