In other news, the first piece of concept art from Half-Life 2: Episode Three is currently floating around The Internet. It shows one of the advisors that are currently running wild all over the planet.
As a relative newcomer to the Half-Life world, I don’t feel I’ve yet paid my dues enough to comment on the art direction. It looks neat, sure, but I wonder what longtime fans of the series think about it. Too bleak? Too “super soldiery”?
