    There may or may not be a thread about this, if there was, i was unable to locate it. I want to discuss what connection portal could have to the Half life universe. None of this adrian shepard crap, if you believe adrian is coming back, use evidence or have a good idea. This is a little out there, but the apeture science page uses a dos like system, maybe gordon could have been a test subject for the portal early on?

    The main connection between them currently is 'Portal' technology (i.e. Teleportation, which is what Black Mesa was researching) and the sort of theme of "Uncaring Authority", although in this case the authority does care - but not about you.

    Hey, this is kinda olde. I don't think there's a link with the character coz teh character is completely new. So unless it really was Shepardingily III, I don't think there's much to discuss XD

    The character you play as in Portal is entirely new, and female. Rules out a lot of Shephards and Gordons and things.

    Anyone know when Portal takes place? Around HL1 time or HL2 time? Before or after C17 blowed up? Since there is a chance this female character will show up in Episode 3(I think I read that somewhere.. correct me if I'm wrong), will you plas as her in Portal up til' the point where you're gonna see her in Episode 3 from Gordons perspective?

    Or if just takes place after that, or long before? Have they said anything about this?

    He's Gordon's father.

    That's all that Samon wants you to know.

    Not yet. They've confirmed that it's set in the Half-Life 2 universe, but we have no information so far on who's behind it all.

    ENTIRELY NEW, does that mean New as in never played before, or New as in never seen/heard of before?

    Now what if Shephard or Gordon only appeared, as in, were seen in Portal? Or will the game take place far too ahead of their time? (As in they're both dead by the time Portal takes place)

    Adrian Shephard is the main (and player) character of Half-Life's first expansion, Opposing Force. He is a marine and part of the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit that are deployed to Black Mesa during the Black Mesa Incident, ie, he's one of the soldiers from Half-Life 1. People only hate him because of Shephard fanboys who are incredibly annoying and because some people hate Opposing Force (More for contradictions with Half-Life's story than gameplay purposes, it is a very fun game for the most part).

    I don't see any point in Valve picking up that bit of backstory.

    But i guess it's up to them. *shrugs*

    No, of course the G-man isn't Gordan Freeman... HE's HIS DAD, AND GARRY NEWMAN'S SON!
