More Freeman's Mind! This episode is one where I had one of the scenes in my head since back before I finished the first FM. You'll probably be able to figure out which part.

This episode did come out later than I intended and while I never like getting the videos out later to people, having a slower release pattern for FM2 was one of my "conditions" back when I agreed to resume the series just so it doesn't block out my work on the movie. New Game Dungeon in a few days!

"They're obviously looking for some sort of cult leader of that complex I was in, they must have found him, but I was on the top floor, therefore I'm in charge, so I'll do just fine".

Not sure what the reference is. Is it the apartment block which Gordon walked through when he was heading towards Kleiner's lab?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's what he's referring to.

Loved this episode. Some of the way things were handled was brilliant.

The thing with the Vortigaunt (very obvious the thing Ross had in mind since HL1) is completely in-character for Gordon, and i'm glad he patched the game to let him do it. I wasn't expecting it for that reason, though, and was completely shocked, which made it even better. :D

The best 20 seconds of Freemans Mind are in this episode, when Freeman shoots the vort. Please post a map download.

I quite enjoyed how Freeman is starting to notice that things aren't quite normal with regards to the 'police' forces he keeps encountering. The Vortigaunt sequence was also entertaining, especially so because the guy with the Vortigaunt reacted in an appropriate manner. Great stuff!

I think so, yeah. Also, I love this for foreshadowing reasons because Gordon is a cult leader, inadvertently.

Freeman shoots and kills a Vortigaunt without even knowing they now allied with the humans.

Now, I wonder what's next if he encounters another one....

Freeman, remember what you said in Episode 66.

Gordon Frohman would be proud. Where did you find the killable-Vorts mod?

Given the 'Additional Mapping' credit at the end of the episode, it was probably custom made.

Hmmm.... ever since episode 1, why are the Vortigaunts using their 2004 model and not the 2007 model?

Ross is currently using the original 2004 HL2 because he feels that it has better (darker) lighting (although I think he mentioned the 2004 one has some issues with the airboat sequence)

I was not expecting that. This is why I love the series so much. :)

It's interesting how the fan base split between "i totally expected that" and "i totally wasn't expecting that". :)

I mean, after his reaction to the vort behind Eli two episodes back this was kind of the only outcome.

I don't think he is using outdated Half-Life 2. There are particles present like blood and fire. Both these effects are from Episode 2.

I'm pretty sure he is using Steampipe Half-Life 2.
