Non-Player Counselor: Gordon Freeman Is Why There's No Half Life 3

Gordon Freeman Is Why There's No Half Life 3

This week Barney brings in Gordon Freeman in the hopes of getting him back on track with Half-Life 3. Unfortunately Gordon might rather be finger-painting.

I really enjoyed this one. Nicely done. The "Five Nights At Freddy's" line especially.

Great job you guys! :)

Wait, Gordon "works on" other franchises? That doesn't make sense.
What would make sense is if his radioactivity-induced insanity included PTSD with the trigger phrase "Half-Life 3" that causes him to faint for a year.

Besides that, this was a pretty funny depiction.

I'm glad they didn't play off any jokes about him being a silent protagonist; I feel like that dead horse has been beaten enough.

Cute episode, although the accent bugged me a little at first. Also, it was weird to see the receptionist getting along with someone, especially a dirt ball like nathan drake. I guess that's the point, though.

I think Dr. Freeman is a little young to sound like Doc Brown. Were you guys trying to make Barney sound like how he does in the games? On the other hand, that last second reveal my Drake and Dr. Gold's own Valve-related meltdown were great!

I often think a great idea for an episode would be a group therapy session for PTSD, and it has PC's from a lot of military and stealth games.

I hope the doctor has some of those with his patients.

3:14 Not sure if Gordon's trolling, or just mentally damaged.

Being that he's in therapy with an escort, probably the latter

Thank you, it was real fun to record this one. Especially the cut away. Hearing kyle yell resonance cascade made me laugh every time

Hmm...first time watching this series and...kinda disappointed I guess? I mean it's not animation, but still frames (I will admit I didn't watch the whole thing, so if that wasn't consistent, feel free to call me out on it) and the voice work quality wasn't great. I couldn't tell if it was just not great mics, or not top notch voice actors.

I'm really not wanting to come off like a negative cunt, because anything can improve and become good. I mean those who remember when jim sterling first turned up at the escapist, he was awful. And now I thank god for Jim every week or more. I just think this needs a lot of work, and those two things I mentioned really do need to be improved to be notable in my opinion.

now i know why HL3 never comes out. this one made me laugh and how gordon kind of contradicts him self regarding HL3. portal 3, 5 nights, good one there.

I'd believe it. Barney's probably not getting paid enough to be his assistant.

Being that he's in therapy with an escort, probably the latter

Aw man... I did not know Ross Scott could channel Doc Brown!

Other than that, Gordon brings a new meaning to the phrase "Too many cooks" in regards to his mental state of being...

Sorry, Ross Scott is the only one who brings the voice of Freeman to voice. You should have taken the hats though. Inflation in the market will mean you'll get Fallout 4 in exchange in approximately 12 years.

Portal 3? PORTAL 3?!!!!! Yeah, I never was into HL, so I'd rather have that! ;)

Anyway, good episode guys! I really liked the disconnect between the science talk and the breakroom fridge ;)

Screenshots of Half Life 3: Better than money.

It's content like this that really makes me want to unpub. Honestly, how did you even think this worth a slot? I mean maybe if they did sketch comedy but stand still animation? Really? REALLY?

PS the writing was pretty good though.
