Episode 3: The first 5 minutes. Your guess?

Postby Loe_Bas on Wed Nov 04, 2009 12:33 pm

Imagine: you put the episode 3 disc in your computer. You install the game and you launch it.
Then you start a new game. What do you think you will see for the coming 5 minutes?
What do you hope to see first? Will it be the Gman, Alex or Labbie (the lab-coated vortiguant).
Where will this all going to start? Mabye in a helicopter? Or in the local hospital? At a funeral?
Do you think/hope it will start right in the action? Or with a conclusion of the previous episodes? Or will they start on the Lighter Note after such a dramatic ending?

That's what this thread is all about :D Post away!

The only thing I know is if I see the portal gun or Alyx I'm gonna piss off.

If I see Alyx holding a portal gun, I'm going to bomb Valve.

I suspect I will see some variety of: "Engine Error: blah blah blah" and find my computer is no longer capable of running it.

An intro with the Gman, and perhaps a scene of the helicopter crash, where you'll obviously see Alyx. If I see a portal gun, I'm going to exit the game and uninstall it.

We're in a chopper, alyx is flying, we're co-pilot, she's sad face, you go to the back of the chopper for something, it goes wrong, we ditch, alyx is somewhere else and you're stuck on your own.

Weaponless.

It's fine Major, you'll miraculously have kept a tight hold on the gravity gun.

I wouldn't be surprised monk. I honestly wouldn't.

On a different note.

Dr magnussen will shout at G-Man - G-Man will turn into a vortigaunt and cleaning
the lab till the end of his life
----- NO! --- of course nothing like that. (I hope)

First there will something like a conclusion to
involve the gamers never played hl2 before.
From the emotional ponit of view a funeral is possible,
Alyx wouldn't leave the her father down on the floor.

And we will fly that heli of course, maybe hunting advisors.

video with elis dead at the final end of the intro. then the heli how it lands on a base in the icecold north. then setting up again, alyx tells gordon what he has to do, she goes another way/waits at the base and then gordon moves along, kicking combines asses through several, in the snow buried bases...

Helicopter flight, heading out over the snowy wastelands, gruff but friendly pilot, Alyx and Gordon in the back. Advisor versus Helicopter mini-battle-scene. Helicopter crashes, distributing Gordon's weapons across the wastelands, seperating you and Alyx. Miraculous gravity gun save. Tontons, Wampa Ice Monster. Eli was your father.

Gordon dies.
And then you play as Alyx with a portal gun.
And still in the first 5 minutes of the game, we learn that Gordon was actually his own father, after he went back in time and had sex with his mother. And the G-man is really just a social worker who's after him for child support.

Now THAT's an opening.
