    I really wouldn't have remembered any details about ep1 unless people hadn't mentioned them. Take from that what you will.

    I can kind of understand that- It feels like it belongs right in HL2 to me and I get the two blurred together. That might not be your reasoning but it is mine :)

    I just thought it sucked horribly and involved following Values pet Mary-sue around for a frustrating romp in AI stupidity.

    I loved episode 2 though. Especially the gnome challenge, which is just the sort of thing I adore.

    Except I lost my gnome on the way to the final part and couldn't find him again :(

    But I'm with you, Nap, I enjoyed Ep1 and don't understand the hate. Ep1 was just more of the same of HL2? Well isn't that a goddamn shame.

    AI stupidity? I never had a problem with the AI in a Valve game outside the resistence members in HL2. edit: Oh, and the combine in general. They aren't bad but they aren't as good as I would like them to be :)

    That said, the AI seems to soak up way more damage than I would like them to (it ruins some of the immersion to see Alyx take even more damage than I can.)

    edit: how did it get nerfed? I haven't played it for a long time.

    Is this the part with the elevator in the dark?

    if so, that's a shame... i died a lot but I had so much fun doing so.

    edit: I wonder if there are any mods that make things the way they used to be.

    I didn't sadly. The main problem was the whole "Alex walks in front of me as I chunk an exploding barrel" or "Alex gets raped by a bazillion zombies" thing. I don't mind dying, just make it my fault please (albeit she could still really take it).

    I also really hated having an AI follow me around for 90% of the game.

The No Mercy Finale was crazy, we all manage to survive, make a run for the chopper, cutting through the hordes as we run, my buddy get's smoker'd, other friend get's huntered and a tank jumps, literally, right infront of the chopper. I go left, my friend goes right. The tank followed my friend. :lol:

    Ughh I don't know which Half-life you played, but when I played, I lost several times to letting Alyx "die".

    Maybe you played on easy or something, cause she's certainly not invincible. Plus she's fine as all hell and not annoying.

    I don't have to outrun the zombies.

    I just have to outrun you three assholes.

    Oh who am I kidding. I'm one of the noble retards that'll try to save people on the finale. Or at least, provides cover fire from the chopper.

    People who get in and then promptly jam a thumb up their ass are asshats.

    Also, I don't know about hard, but on Normal Alyx will take a shitload of punishment before she drops. Usually I'm dead long before that would've happened. I don't think I've managed to get her killed more than a handful of times, and usually due to traps/situations that involve overwhelming damage, rather than constant combat.

    From what I've heard, she's got tons of life and an insane regeneration rate.

    Also, she owns my heart. *swoon*
