- G-Man has not made an look in over 12 years because of the delay between Half-Life sequels.
- It’s unlikely that his id might be revealed in Half-Life: Alyx, however the prospect is intriguing.
It’s been greater than 12 years because the enigmatic G-Man final haunted the Half-Life franchise. However on the cusp of Valve’s most anticipated sequel, the sinister interdimensional bureaucrat resurfaced on Twitter simply in time to want you one of many creepiest New Yr’s messages round.
Rekindling Previous Acquaintances
Mike Shapiro, the voice actor behind G-Man, actually hit the nail on the timing head with this one. There are just a few hours to go till 2020, and it’s fairly clear that previous acquaintances ought to not be forgot.
Ringing within the new yr is a centuries-previous custom, however for keen followers of Half-Life: Alyx, March 2020 can’t come quickly sufficient. G-Man lives lengthy in Half-Life folklore, epitomized by his company peeping Tom demeanor.
He does, in any case, frequently have to verify in on his shopper’s most respected funding. For the sake of Auld Lang Syne, let’s hope the brand new yr will reunite us with an expensive previous acquaintance.
Will Half-Life: Alyx Reveal the Id of G-Man?
Unlikely. G-Man’s attraction comes virtually solely from the thriller and hypothesis surrounding his origin. And that may be a money cow for recreation writers the world over. As one Redditor points out:
Man, I’ve been hanging out for some new G-Man dialogue for over a decade: That video actually hit the G-spot.
Personally, I’d like to see much more element of his involvement behind the scenes. There’s nothing worse than watching a collection go spherical in circles making an attempt to increase its promote-by date.
But when that doesn’t work, you can all the time flip to different hilarious and properly-constructed arguments for who he actually is:
Final time I checked, Alyx was nowhere near ready with its VR implementations. Let’s hope Valve performs their playing cards proper within the subsequent 4 months to vary that notion.
And keep in mind, Half-Life followers: Do put together for penalties!
