Half-Life 2 – Cane and Rinse No.56

“Rise and shine, Mr. Freeman. Rise and shine.”

Some twenty years after defeating the Nihilanth on Xen, Dr. Gordon Freeman is brought out of stasis by the mysterious G-Man to defend humanity (and the Vortigaunt) against the alien forces who have enslaved the Earth in Half-Life 2. Leon, Josh and Karl combine to couple with Valve’s multiple Game of the Year 2004 award winner with all the tenacity of a still-beaked Headcrab. Naturally we also enjoy contributions from the forum and Twitter including your Three Word Reviews.

This Issue of Cane and Rinse is dedicated to Isabella and Lux Atkins: 2 Whole-Lives.


 
Music used in this issue:

1: Requiem for Ravenholm by Kelly Bailey
2: Path of Borealis by Kelly Bailey

  1. Feel like the tech behind it was the real work of brilliance while the game simply did the bare minimum to be called a game. Basic shooting mechanics? Check, space invaders story? Check, uninteresting characters? Check.

    Put it all together and a very bland game is formed.
