    The magnum model is SO FRECKIN REALISTIC!!!

    Sorry, but I could not contain myself. Why didn't they make the MP7 model as detailed as that. (I mean it's detailed - but NOTHING of the calibur of the magnum)

    Note to Valve - When you take screenshots make sure you increase the brightness afterwards because the screenshots come out way too dark and reduce the quality of the screenshot a great deal.

    The second pic with the resistant fighter looks 100% better when you increase the brightness. In the original pic I could not see any details on that guy and did not even see Gordon's hand with the machine gun in the corner :)

    I agree, the revolver is so damn well made in Half-Life 2. Reminds me of the revolver in Half-Life when I first saw it: "Oh, never seen such a beauty!”. ;)

    Great screens, it really goes to show just how hard Valve is working to make Half-Life 2 such a kick ass game. The screens look better then any we've seen before, they look amazing... I don't know how else to communicate my feelings for them. All I can say is, no matter how long we wait for the game it will be worth it ten fold when we get to play.

    As will your teeth. By the time the game is actually released we'll all be retired and too old and feeble to play.

    Haha, unintentional pun!

    Ah, I see now. Sorry 'bout that. I interpreted the "there" typo to mean "there's" instead of the true meaning of "they're".

    Interesting hands!

    I quite like the reflective hands in the pictures. Dunno if this is a plot point, or an unfinished model.Thoughts?

    The hands in HL1 were reflective (technically not reflective but shiny...i guess). Plot-wise, Gordon is wearing the same uniform/same gloves. Try play HL1 sometime and you'll see.

    Yes, he works on Valve. He's the company masseuse.

    I have played HL1, many times, latest just last week. I know they were reflective, I just couldn´t remember them being silver!

    Fair enough DW. To rephrase my original point, I wonder whether they will stay as reflective, or be made slighty darker. Either way, the effect is cool.

    Plus Gordon will never want for a mirror.
     
  27. I like the new normal mapping on the ant lions. That's definitly more detailed than before.

    At the risk of resurrecting a dying argument :upstare: didn't Gordon' 'gloves' have stripes along the fingers and thumbs? Anyone got a link to a pic to remind me?

    Well...yep I suppose you could.

    The old hev's hands had a sheen - but they were black with orange pad like things.

    The new hands (hence the upgraded HEV) has mettalic hands and is reflective. This is personally much more cooler (IMO) as they properly reflect light - if there is a fire near by they'll reflect a yellowish glimmer (as seen in the barricade video)

    The screenshots were alright, I would rather be playing cs:s than being shown a few shots so half the community doesnt go mad again. Again... etc

    i think it was nothing but a screenshot where they copy-pasted an image of a building that isn't featured in hl2.
