This is what Breen wants for humanity Posted on May 13, 2023 by Anonymous This is what Breen wants for humanity
MODDDSSSS ITS LE HECKIN GORE!!!! MODERINOS!!!! BAN HIM!!! ITS LE GOREINO
those are not humans anymors
moronic, they are humans just modified
it's like saying a man isn't human anymore because he has a pacemaker or an artificial knee implant
their brains were scooped out and replaced with unknown synth parts that override their consciousness
not at all true, their brains only have minor implants related to memory and cognitive function, but it's still ultimately a human being that operates largely on human behavior. what constitutes a "pure" human specimen is impossible to objectively define and wanders into philosophical territory.
anti citizen propaganda
That's a lot of time spent just to call the combine morons.
In HL:Alyx we can see that combine soldiers dont actually have ears
"Only minor implants" they are physically adjusted in such a way that following combine orders is their only choice. They are no longer men with free will.
Yes you're technically correct in that they're homosapiens still, they aren't yet bred/evolved to be something else. But that's kind of the moral point being made with the soldier and the combine as a whole. At what point do the external adjustments change the definition of what you are? Like, what are the damn advisors?
Anyways I also think you're being a bit obtuse. He says they're not human not in that they aren't physically homosapiens. But that they lack the very thing that makes a human a human: that free will. Their modifications are not minor, they are functionally biological computers, they're human instinct has been manipulated and adjusted to take orders. I mean if I demented a rats brain so that I could control it with an Xbox controller, sure it's still a rat but it's never gonna be able to exist as a rat anymore.
Free will does not exist. The Combine soldier is no more or less free than the average citizen.
Advisor hands typed this post. Combine fedposters begone!
no but pic related is chud
I wonder what this dude looked like when he was alive
I bet he looked less happy.
he's got a big ol smile so he must be happy about it
>when u didn't drink water
>NOOOOOOO YOU CAN'T HAVE A COOL BLUE LIGHT ON YOUR RIBCAGE BECAUSE... YOU JUST CAN'T OKAY??
that's his waste plug
If you didn't use mimic tear you intentionally handicapped yourself to make the game more "challenging" because you lack accomplishment irl and seek validation through being "good" at a singeplayer non-competitive RPG.
Its about self satisfaction, not validation
but whatever, this is a bot post
I played a single player file on seamless so I literally couldn’t use any summons and I also min maxed strength while using the godslayer sword (scales with dex). I got stuck at castle sol
Trust the science chud.
Where is this from? I mean, yeah, Half-Life, but who made these models / picture?
It's from Half Life Alyx
I played alyx and never saw those models
the bottom corpse is lying by the shoe shining station right before exiting the station to the north star hotel. Top one is even more common and you can find their helmet eyes also all over combine outposts
Studies say it's healthy and makes you happier.
this but unironically because all of the OTA are jacked superintelligent killers who can take an entire clip of 9mm, are hooked into a wifi hivemind and can see through walls
a clip and a magazine will hold the same number of bullets and therefore "clip" is a perfectly valid unit of measurement for how many bullets one needs to dispatch an enemy
the combine portal to backwater planets with worse tech and suck up all their natural resources while enslaving the locals.
thats what euros did to africans and south americans in colonial times
its just barebones sci-fi imperialist critique
man I really want GMan as government spook back instead of fuckever this walking talking deus ex machina shit he is now.
Gman was much more interesting if you were in the time where he was just some government guy who already had all of the technology Black Mesa was messing around with. Future tech? Alt reality Earth government? We'll never know. The Combine, as cool as they are, will never be as cool as 98 era headcanon as to what all of it was.
i cant remember, did that not-Episode 3 synopsis that Laidlaw posted make any hint that they actually knew what to do with Gman? or did he just remain a vague, omnipotent third-party?
Still a vague and extremely psychic but not omnipotent third party. There was a heavy implication from the Breengrub Twitter account that Gman is a mature form of one of the Combine Advisors, which can psychically control their own genetic structure in the larval phase and emerge from their chrysalis in any form they feel like, while retaining all of their psychic power. Breen had a backup of his mind shoved into a Combine Advisor as part of his deal for handing Earth over, but he wasn't able to mentally cope with the memory gaps (especially knowing Gordon killed his original self, indirectly or not) or just not being human anymore, even if he could have just imagined himself into a human again eventually.
It's implied that he's basically an alien glowmoron for the Combine's rival faction. He's tasked with crippling Humanity's teleportation technology and denying the Combine any access to said tech.
bro he was straight up smoking man and the original game ends with planting 'Murrican flag on Xen, they knew jackshit about what to do next.
>the original game ends with planting 'Murrican flag on Xen
Id like to play whatever fucked up version of hl you played
Don't forget the tripods.
The British government firmly denies using giant tripods during the colonial era.
Would you lose your humanity for power?
depends on how much power I would have. if i still had a consciousness, then i would do it
All of the leaking blood can't be an effective way of making them. they'll just bleed to death. Or get puss and shit all over the masks
They're already dead..
Combine Rights are Human Rights!
The concept of "human" is a social construct, actually.
Please use "intelligent being" in the future, thank you.
No its not, its just the best he can get. He'd rather humanity live on in any aspect possible than just go extinct
right was a punishment iirc
left is just when you have enough good boy points
You will live in the Citadel barracks. You will eat the desiccated sustenance bar. You will sterilize the anti-citizens. You will ride the Dropship synth to work in the Outlands. You will execute the viromes. You will spray the Antlion hives with the cleanup solution. You will take the augments. You will get artificial skin grafts. You will receive the implanted organs. You will take the mandatory cognitive suppression biodata. You will prepare for a visual download of Anticitizen One. You will request the stimdose. You will alert the Ordinal of the boosted spikes on Target One. You will throw the bouncer. You will get the memory replacement procedures. You will beg Overwatch for a verdict resupply (your request will be denied). You will inject yourself with the grubjuice. You will report the Vort. You will curbstomp the headcrab. You will assist the Xen Quarantine teams. You will defend the Earth Administrator. You will obey the mandatory compliance with all tenets of Advisorial Assistance Act.
What I want for humanity is for Valve to honor their word to the community, finish Artifact Foundry, and hold the million-dollar tournament.
Valve screwed over the Artifact fanbase by cancelling the Artifact 2.0 beta without even allowing users to invite friends like they said they would in January 2021 and does not deserve your financial support for these gross consumer-unfriendly practices.
What's that bottom image supposed to be? Alien hybrid? Just looks like a brain or wrinkly balls.
why one of them have brainface?
Not my problem.
PICK UP THAT CAN
The earth and humanity were already fucked and Breen realized that, the only choice at that point was either to not resist the combine and continue to exist in some form or resist and get completely eradicated down to the last human. The Gman throws retard Gordon Freeman in to do as much damage as he can to the Combine and maybe shake things up, maybe even distract them in some way but the Gman clearly gives no fucks about humanity or even expects Gordon to fully defeat the Combine on earth.
I want a game where you play as a human combine soldier conquering some alien world. It is confirmed in the game that they get assigned offworld although it's considered a punishment.
I had an idea for a game wherein you play as a low-level OTA sent to the Dishonored universe, either Karnaca or Dunwall, sometime after it was invaded by the Combine and is infested with Xen flora, and the Combine are trying to make use of the Void and its magic as a power source. Maybe something involving the Outsider being taken prisoner much like the Gman.
fateful findings was a masterpiece and you cant convince me otherwise
looks pretty based to me
That tech priest is legitimately dead
Bottom left is a zombie combine. They only look like that after getting headcrabbed
kinda weird to think these guys still laugh and have a sense of humor and stuff.
you're thinking of the metrocops who are just regular dudes underneath the mask
Bottom left is what it looks like when a headcrab scrambles your brains
If you don't want to be
Then, I'm sorry, but you are an antisemite
Metro Police are based. They have a quota of beating or killing people, they can choose to kill only morons or women, and once they reach enough universal union in-organization credit, they get to fuck their wives whole everyone else is stuck as moron cattle that can't breed.
what's the advantage of those metal feet over the normal human feet? seems like a waste of resources to me
ISN'T THAT CORRUPT?
ISN'T THAT BETRAYING THE PUBLIC'S TRUST?
better than what dems want
