my theory: in the barricade video when the combine in 'the command' post shoot outs that flare the Flying thing appears... so, is its Combine creation?

It must be combine - what else could it be? And in the E3 demo, where they demonstrate the car, the "flying thing" is very focused on and only shoots after the player - not anyone else. So..... combine?

The flare theory also sounds likely. I have actually wondered wtf he was doing, but maybe this is the answer?

Regards,
Nimbus

PS. But then again - the E3 may only be a demonstration.... that's always an unanswered question when someone refers to the E3 video. dry.gif

What are the Combine? They're aliens with our human guns for all we know. I'm almost positive that flare ting is the launcher thing from the movie with the flying disks.

the combine is NOT aliens, and i dont think they are some mix between humans and aliens...
i think they are Humans, but 'mutated' in some way... or just Cops...

Agreed - at the end of the hl2bugbait movie where the big alien comes through the wall it kills 3 combine soldiers. So aliens and combine do not go hand in hand. Wheater the wall is combine or alien I think it would be fair to claim that none of us can tell.... only guess... There's not really any proof for either of the solutions(?)

..... "and in the end hl2 was released and proved him all wrong" wink.gif it's just my best shot.

So the combine is an evil and dangerous building. Sounds like something I saw on Monty Python last night. smile.gif
