So, The Half Life 2 episode 1 discussion begins here - i got completed it without commentary on normal in about three and a half hours in one sitting... It was however, great while it lasted. Once you complete it you get to watch a trailer for HL2 EP2, which looks amazing. Through a bit of poking around i found the file at :
SPOILER WARNING !!!! SPOILERS IN TRAILER
C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\STEAM NAME HERE\half-life 2 episode one\episodic\media
If anyone wants to see the mini striders up close and personal i managed to discover a little trick..
2.Once you fix the reator run over to Alyx
3.when she starts playing the Mossman video wait for about 5-10 seconds
4.Activate the sound node by the console which will take you over to show you that it is happening live... And as it shows you live you get to see whats happening on the recording - thus ministriders.
Please post here to discuss favourite moments.. tips and tricks etc and EP2 speculation!
