Half-Life 2 Holds A Few Secrets Where Its Cameras Aren't Looking

Although we may never get to see the real Half-Life 2: Episode 3 or Half-Life 3, we can continue scouring the games we do have for more details. That's exactly what Youtuber Shesez has done in the latest episode of his regular series, Boundary Break.

It may not offer details about who the G-Man is, but Half-Life 2 does have a number of interesting things hidden beyond its boundaries. For one, the intro scene in which the G-Man appears use actual 3D renders of past Half-Life locations, which are located within the game's world (though far out of reach for most players). For more details like where the skies in Half-Life 2 actually are, what happens to the G-Man between his sightings in-game, and where Dr. Wallace Breen actually is when he address you in City 17, watch the video below.

Captain Falcon Was Almost The SNES Mascot

Captain Falcon Was Almost The SNES Mascot

Those of us fortunate enough to snag an SNES classic this Friday may have skipped over F-Zero in favor of more revered classics like Super Mario World, A Link To The Past, and Earthbound. But Perhaps F-Zero should have been a little bit more front-and-center in the SNES Classic's messaging, since the game's main character was originally created as the console's mascot.

In a recent developer interview about the games on the system, F-Zero designer Takaya Imamura revealed that Captain Falcon (who debuted in F-Zero but who most people now remember as that guy in Super Smash Bros. with the powerful knee) was originally conceived as the official mascot of the SNES. "When development of F-ZERO was almost complete, I was doing a bunch of illustrations and someone expressed a desire to make a mascot character for Super NES, with a name like Captain Something," Imamura said. "So I started thinking about a character who would match the colors of the Super Famicom controller, with some red and blue and yellow."

During the stream, the new mode was demoed by eight players who were divided into teams of two. This mode takes the form of a football stadium, where players attempt to get one of their troops over to the opponent's endzone, which is at the other end of the arena.
